A staffer from Urban Meyer's time at Florida says that he never saw anybody doctoring film.

Over the weekend, reports surfaced saying Ohio State got its game film to Michigan State late and that the Spartans at one point had found the film to be doctored in some way. Jeremy Fowler of CBS Sports is now reporting that a former Florida staffer has said that he never saw this happen at Florida while Meyer was in charge:

I spoke with a former Florida staffer who said "never once" did he see the Gators doctoring opponent's game tape. Meyer told the Free-Press he wasn't involved.

The report goes on to note that such a thing is not unheard of, and that it's not always something that a head coach has anything to do with.

According to the piece, an assistant coach from an AQ conference told Fowler that video coordinators have the tendency to send very small sample sizes in their game tape, which does meet the definitions of "doctoring."

Athletic directors from both schools met and resolved the issue, according to the Free Press on Saturday.
