So far, the Ohio native has done a good job of shaking things up in Jacksonville.

Meyer has made sure players have access to the best nutrition, treatment, and treatment available. Also, both the coaching staff and the players will tell you how different things are with the former Florida head coach at the helm. However, the real test will come in Week 1.
