John Kasich Scores With Urban Meyer Endorsement

Urban Meyer has taken whatever political clout he has and thrown it behind John Kasich, endorsing the republican candidate and Ohio governor for president.

Normally this wouldn't be too big of a deal - state's most prominent football coach from state's most prominent university endorses state's most prominent politician - but let's evaluate the situation for a moment.

The fact that Meyer has endorsed Kasich, an action that is so commonplace, is exactly what makes it abnormal. This presidential campaign has been more TMZ than C-SPAN. Candidates have compared, erm, hand sizes; talked about the first time they smoked marijuana in order to look hip, daddy-o; barked like dogs at rallies; and generally gotten down in the gutter, one step away from turning figurative mudslinging into a literal mud wrestling bout.

Moreover, the offseason recruiting cycle has been nothing ordinary either. Jim Harbaugh has taken to wrestling recruits, having sleepovers, climbing trees and ticking off the better part of the SEC by spending spring break down at IMG Academy in sunny Florida. Unconventional to say the least.

So yeah, there seems to be some dovetailing between Kasich and Meyer that goes beyond the Ohio roots. While they're playing Steady Eddie, chugging along and hardly rocking the boat, their biggest rivals are basically some crazed amalgam of Dr. Strangelove and Derek from Step Brothers.

In election and recruiting seasons that have each long been off the rails, something so familiar as a coach and politician politely rubbing shoulders suddenly feels like news. If only because of the lacking theatrics.
