"You get a premium education with the opportunity to go compete for a national championship in a large city that really has no professional sports team. There's a lot to be offered up here."

Urban Meyer said he is a fan of the Columbus Blue Jackets of the NHL and the Columbus Crew of Major League soccer, and in a text message sent to The Dispatch today he wanted to make it clear he misspoke in an interview with an Atlanta newspaper last week in which he was quoted as saying Columbus had no major league sports.

“I have great respect for both the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Columbus Crew organizations,” Meyer wrote today. “The intent of my comment about football recruiting was that Columbus doesn’t have professional football. I should have made that point clear, and I do apologize for the misunderstanding.

“I am pulling for the Blue Jackets in their playoff drive and I wish the best for the Crew under its new leadership.”
