Former Gators Cheer Meyer's Loss

You thought a lot of people were happy when Alabama lost to Auburn last week.

Well, that didn't compare to the schadenfreude when Ohio State lost to Michigan State on Saturday.

Not only were fans -- especially SEC fans -- happy, but former Florida players under Urban Meyer couldn't contain themselves, either..

They expressed their joy over Twitter. To wit:Jelani Jenkins tweet

Brad Phillips tweet

As you may recall, Meyer left Florida right after his loss to Alabama in the 2009 SEC Championship Game, claiming health reasons and a desire to spend more time with his family, only to return a year later to coach Ohio State.

So, in the eyes of some Gators, Christmas came a little early after that Buckeyes loss.
