Urban Meyer Takes Hilarious Shot at Georgia During Draft Call With Jalen Camp
Few college football coaches have as many accolades as Urban Meyer. Now, he'll take his first crack at leading an NFL as the Jacksonville Jaguars head coach. While there's still plenty of time before Meyer and the Jaguars hit the field, that hasn't stopped him from making headlines for some pretty hilarious reasons.
Meyer was a part of several rivalries from his time coaching college football, including one with the Georgia Bulldogs. Wideout Jalen Camp, a sixth-round pick by the Jaguars this year, played his college ball with Georgia Tech, one of the Bulldogs' biggest rivals.
That's why it was incredibly hilarious when Meyer made a draft-day phone call to Camp and started off the conversation by saying, "To hell with Georgia, right?"
Camp didn't waste any time, agreeing with Meyer right away. It might not be a big moment, but it's encouraging for Jaguars fans to see their new coach building a bond with the new draftees.
Speaking of which, there's another connection in the Georgia-Georgia Tech rivalries when it comes to the Jaguars. They drafted Bulldogs CB Tyson Campbell with the very first pick of the second round. It'll be interesting to see what happens when Camp and Campbell practice against each other. A friendly rivalry never hurt anyone and you have to imagine that both men might trash talk each other when it comes to their former schools.
Either way, Jaguars fans have suffered for some time now, so it's nice to see a lighter side to the franchise.
