Ohio State Coach Urban Meyer stuck at sea

 POSTED BY:  KLKN Newsroom

A cruise ship filled with Ohio State football fans was stuck in the waters off Florida after heavy fog closed the port and prevented the ship from returning as scheduled.

The Royal Caribbean cruise ship that left on Thursday was scheduled to arrive back to Tampa, Florida, on Monday but it is only now making a slow trip back to port.

Most of the 2,160 guests on board the Brilliance of the Seas were Ohio State football fans on board as part of an annual cancer charity fundraiser, and the passengers included the team’s coach, Urban Meyer.

Though they were stuck at sea, everyone appeared to be making the best out of the situation. Passenger Lanne Bennett told ABC News that the trip has “been absolutely amazing.”
