The Football Fever: Meyer's rooting interest in Cleveland Cavs goes way back


CLEVELAND -- Ohio State footall coach Urban Meyer was among a group of local and national celebrities taking in Game 3 of the NBA Finals Wednesday night in Cleveland.

Meyer was joined by NFL Hall of Famer Cris Carter. PGA pros Jason Day and Bubba Watson were also in the crowd for the Warriors 118-113 win.

Meyer grew up going to games at Richfield Coliseum, the team's home before Quicken Loans Arena. When asked about his favorite players, he responded with "Austin Carr, Footsie Walker and now Lebron James."

No word if Meyer will attend Friday night's Game 4 in Cleveland, which could be the season-ender for the Cavs who trail in the series, 3-0.
