Urban Meyer's Chest Pains

I've read the book Urban's Way, an exposition about Urban Meyer and his body of work as a football coach. Throughout the book a few key themes popped up: his endless drive to succeed, the enormous pressure he put on himself, and the incredible hours he put in to achieve that success.

He was bound to be worn down. It is now widely known that he went to the hospital after Florida's loss to Alabama. The strain of Florida's 22 game win streak was literally killing him.

My hope is he will return to coaching with his health stable and not at risk for his life. I'm a big fan of his and wish him the best.
