Youth and Innocence Beat Age and Guile

Urban Meyers "Lucy Moment"

One was born in July of 1964. The other in March of 1989. There can be little doubt the elder had more guile, demonstrated with three seconds left in the game.

In a scene reminiscent of Lucy holding the football for Charlie Brown to kick, Urban Meyers, like Lucy Van Pelt, proved he is a bitch.

But the younger man showed innocence. The kind of childlike innocence that is oblivious to the malicious meddling of the grown-ups.

Urban, in the game of college football brinkmanship, you were beaten by a man less than half your age.
