After a brief hiatus that he would probably prefer to never discuss again, Urban Meyer is back in the lives of college football fans this season. And he’s brought an interesting fashion quirk with time.
Meyer is back on Fox’s Big Noon Kickoff team and has been making his presence felt in recent weeks with bold predictions and a clear affinity for his former school, Ohio State. However, what really caught the attention of the college football world is his glasses.
Meyer has been sporting dark sunglasses while appearing in BNK and the unique fashion choice has a lot of people talking (and making requisite jokes).

Have we talked about how Urban Meyer looks like an evil supervillain with his transition glasses?

Does Urban Meyer intentionally wear the sunglasses? Like, is he trying to be cool?

Whatever the reason for the eyewear, Meyer seems to be reveling in his return to the studio desk, though it sounds like he’s been getting some help along the way to avoid some awkward interactions. While he continues to be linked to potential coaching openings around the country, Meyer seems to be making it clear that he’s enjoying his elder statesman days and probably doesn’t need to prove himself on the sidelines any further.
We’ll see if that holds true as it wouldn’t be that surprising to see Meyer and his sunglasses roaming the sidelines in certain Big 12, SEC, or Big Ten stadiums one day soon.
