Urban Meyer returning to Fox’s college football pregame show

1. I assume most of you reading this know what a “Friday news dump” is. For those of you who don’t know: A “Friday news dump” is when a company, person, etc., drops significant news late in the afternoon on a Friday so that it won’t get as much coverage as it would if it came out earlier in the week while everybody was still at their computers.

Fox pulled off a truly comical “Friday news dump” last week when it very quietly mentioned the disgraced Urban Meyer will be back on its college football pregame show this season.

Normally when Fox makes a splashy hire, there are press releases, tweets and fanfare. This happened recently with the hiring of college football play-by-play guy Jason Benetti, the promotion of Kevin Burkhardt and Greg Olsen to its No. 1 NFL crew and the addition of former Saints coach Sean Payton to its NFL studio shows.
