My guess is he went for the most money...maybe better climate...more upside to the team possibly with Florida being a ripe recruiting area.
I'm a bit surprised by this turn of events.
I don't think it was the money. Notre Dame could have matched that easily. I think you nailed it with Florida having more upside and it being the best state to recruit from. Rumor had it that Ron Zook was leaving the next coach a gold mine of talent. I was listening to ESPN radio earlier and they seemed to indicate that Urban Meyer wanted Notre Dame to ease some of their academic requirements but they balked at it. This is a better situation For Meyer IMO.
