Keith Urban On Nicole Kidman

Keith Urban On Nicole Kidman - Keith Urban has opened up about the moment his marriage to Nicole Kidman almost collapsed - insisting he would have understood if the actress had walked out on him when he was admitted to rehab.

The country superstar has long battled alcohol and drug addiction and he reached a breaking point four months after his marriage to the "Moulin Rouge!" star in 2006.

Kidman helped stage an intervention and Urban checked into the Betty Ford Center in a bid to kick his bad habits for good.

During an appearance on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" on Monday, Urban revealed he thought his addictions would "tear" the couple apart and "destroy" their marriage.

And the singer insists he would have understood if Kidman had left him, telling the TV host, "Well that's the point right there where she should have just walked. Not should have, that's not the right word, but I (would have understood if she had). Of course... I'm just glad she didn't."

He also praised Kidman for the way she handled the situation, adding, "It was really a profound moment in so many ways. The way in which Nic handled that moment was just perfect... Everything was just designed, I believe, for that moment to fuse us together."

Kidman was also interviewed on the show and told Winfrey the tough times made their relationship stronger: "I think marriage is about, every day, trying to make it better and working through things and when things are tough, saying, 'I'm going to come to you and talk.' We're just very tight, and we stay really tight."

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
