The news about Urban Meyer's resignation at Florida was so stunning that when the announcement first popped into my inbox, I seriously thought for a moment that someone must have hacked into the Gators' sports information director's e-mail account to send it. The only thing more stunning: Seeing that Meyer has reconsidered and now is only taking an "indefinite leave of absence." Obviously all of this is huge news and sending shock waves throughout the college football world.

Now? "Open flood gates," texted one college coach Sunday morning. So which programs stand to gain the most in the wake of the Meyer announcement?
