Here’s Why Urban Meyer Is Trending On Social Media

If you were wondering why Urban Meyer was trending on Twitter late Saturday night, you’ve come to the right place.

The former Buckeye coach was allegedly spotted in close quarters with a woman who is not his wife of 35 years, Shelley Meyer. The original tweet, which has since been deleted, included a video of what seems to be Urban Meyer at a crowded bar. A young woman is said to be seen dancing provocatively against his lap while he is speaking to the man next to him.

Within a few hours of the initial tweet, Urban Meyer was trending and people across the country were reacting. Although the original tweet has been deleted, along with the account that tweeted it, the video has fallen prey to the oldest rule on the internet: nothing is ever really deleted on the internet.

The video has been redownloaded, so quality suffers, but other images from the same timeframe show Coach Meyer wearing the same outfit.

No place loves a scandal like Twitter, so you can imagine the response. Actually, you don’t have to imagine, here’s a taste.

Meyer is currently the head coach for the Jacksonville Jaguars, who have had a rough start to the season. The team is 0-4, with their latest loss coming on Thursday night to former OSU-to-LSU quarterback Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals.
