Photo: Urban Meyer, Jimmy Johnson and a Big Fish

Oh, Twitter. What was life like before you?

Here's a photo of Urban Meyer, his son Nate, and a shirtless Jimmy Johnson, holding up a nice mahi Nate hauled in off the Florida Keys.

Fishing. Comparing notes with one of the best football coaches to ever step onto the gridiron. That's our idea of a good vacation.

Also, who wants to bet that Johnson hasn't worn shoes in at least five years?

Mahi tastes way to good to mount. Just my humble opinion.

You don't actually mount the fish you catch anymore. Well you can but it is extraordinarily expensive. With fish like Mahi you take several picks and measurements and they recreate it with a mold to be exactly like the one you caught.

Money is probably not a problem for the Meyer family. . . just a guess.

I'll pretty much mount anything, but I'm sure your right.

Mahi tastes way to good to mount. 

Mahi is actually one of the more bland/blank fish with a lightweight flavor. Cod like almost.

Kinda disappointed in Urb's Boston hat though. If I'm being honest...

An Indians block C hat or a Cincinnati hat would have been better choices. I am now beginning to question Meyer's decision making.

Agreed, if it's not gonna be an Ohio team then I'd at least expect it to be the Braves since that is who drafted him

It's always better to speculate about hidden meanings in everything. How will we jump to conclusions otherwise?

Why, they are champions like Urb is, 3 of the last ten world championships.  How's your Tribe or Reds doing?

I just threw up in my mouth a little seeing that... I'm sure it's just a hat he grabbed for that day but you never know.

If Nate reeled it in, why isn't he holding it?  Also, that hat has got to go!

I passed Jimmy Johnson on the sidewalk in front of the Don Cesar in St. Pete Beach early one morning. I said good morning but I don't think he said anything back. That is the end of the story.

It's not hate.  Displeasure, perhaps.

Now, if it had been Yankee hat, that would bring out the knives.

I could have SWORN coach Coombs was on vacation with Urban. I really thought that was him in the picture until I read who posted the Twitter feed. 

On another note, this reminds me of my dreams of striking it rich and living out the rest of my days in Hawaii. One day brothers, I will be posting here on 11-Dubs with me in a tropical Hawaiian background. We all gotta dream right?

It's a recruiting dead period.

In a dead period it is permissible to talk to recruits on the phone.

I have the same sneaks as urbs.  Makes me want to dial up a 5*, or maybe just take my son fishing with Jimmy Johnson.

Off the coast of "three rings" and they caught somethin big... Hmmmm urban is chasing a 3rd ring, assuming this is a sign.

Also, Urban in shoes on a boat?? Come On Man crew would love this.

  I believe "Three Rings" in this case is the name of Johnson's boat.  He also owns a restaurant by the same name.. 

But, I like where your head is at.

When I first saw that picture, I thought that it was Coombs in the middle. Upon closer examination, as well as reading the title, twitter post, and article, it is Jimmy Johnson.

Just a little bit envious of Nate, and the opportunities he has as UFM's mancub...pretty awesome.

You always wear old, unwanted dome covers when you're doing something that is potentially messy. The hat probably belongs to Johnny Damon, who is now running a charter business in the Keys, and took that picture...?
