Urban Meyer Finishes 7th in Chick-Fil-A Bowl Challenge Long Drive Competition

Yesterday, the Chick-Fil-A Bowl Challenge held its skills competition where BCS football coaches and their celebrity partners competed for $20,000 in scholarship money for their respective universities.

Urban Meyer and Jeff Logan, captain of the 1977 team, represented the Buckeyes in the competition and although they didn't place in the long drive or closest to the pin competitions, they both showed well. Meyer finished 7th in the longest drive competition among coaches with a 254-yard blast, event if his mechanics look like they could us a bit of work.

Guess it could have been worse.

To think, we were this close to a hurled visor.

Logan, an avid golfer and founder of his own golf-related charity, the Logan Family Foundation, did Meyer better with a drive of 296 yards, good enough for a tie with Bo Jackson for fourth in the celebrity division. If we tie Bo Jackson at anything, we're immediately retiring from that activity to boast about it for the rest of our lives.

The coaches and celebs are back on the course at Reynolds Plantation in nearby Atlanta today to compete for more than $700,000 in charity and scholarship money.
