Urban Meyer loves college football. After all, he only stayed retired from the game for less than a year.

But there is one thing that knocks his coveted profession of its pedestal — his unbridled love of Jimmy Buffet.

Busted Coverage found a photo of Meyer and Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen palling around at a Buffet concert in Atlanta in April. Mullen and Meyer have been close friends and colleagues since the late 90s when they worked together at Notre Dame. They were also together at Bowling Green, Utah and won a couple national championships at Florida.

Apparently, Meyer tries to take in a Buffet concert yearly around his birthday in July. When he coached at Florida, he told the Tampa Bay Times that Buffet had a standing invitation to join the team on the sideline. Buffet actually took him up on the offer for a 56-6 win over South Carolina in 2008.

It’s probably easier to blast “Margaritaville” on a fall Florida day than a snowy one in Columbus, Ohio.
