The NCAA granted the Florida native Grimes a waiver to play right away because he said his transfer was motivated by a desire to be closer to his mother, Leah, who was diagnosed with cancer.
The Stadium story implied that story was a cover for the real reason Grimes wanted out at Florida, questioning his mother’s health status in the process.
“How that became a story, I think they’re trying to say we made up a story about cancer or something — once again, I’ve never heard anything like this before in my life so we’ve got a big game this week and we’ll move on, but certainly looking into legal action,” Meyer said. "I just don’t know how that’s allowed to… I don’t know. I don’t understand the rules and the laws of the land and say that you can just accuse people of something that did not happen.”
