I don't get why the head coaches always get thrown under the bus after something like this comes out. Meyer paid him to do a certain job, he's not his babysitter. As soon as he was found out, he was fired. I could have co-workers that abuse their wives and would have no idea because I don't walk up to them every day and asked if they hit their wife this morning.

And this isn't an OSU thing, it happens so much at our college campuses across the country. Local media, especially the big time programs are often shielded from the truth or even worse, look the other way so they don't lose their valuable leads. It's just really sad that the quest to be part of a college sports program blinds so many people from doing what's right.
What cover up ? Here is what Meyer and OSU knew about Smith : https://www.elevenwarriors.com/ohio-...015-allegation

And we don't know anything about the relationship between Z. Smith and his wife. She might be one of those bitter, crazy women that hate men and blame all their troubles on them? Maybe she isn't and he's a turd? Maybe they both are scum? Who knows? Anyway, he was a decent recruiter, but a mediocre WR coach at best. No great loss. Hartline will have more cred with the recruits anyway, being that he accomplished something in the NFL.

I dunno. I often ask co-workers if they have stopped beating their wives.

Now, as to whether they be truthin' or not.....

I am tired of sports teams being required to be the moral voice of America ... this kind of stuff should not be up to them ... our legal system needs to be held more accountable in these situation ... these things need to be reported to the police and the police/courts to investigate and determine guilt or not ... if guilty, the perpetrator needs to go to jail ... where is the outrage against our legal system that seemingly does virtually nothing in these cases?

If Urban knew, he is required by law to report it. If he broke the law, he should be fired. And if he didn’t know, his wife broke the law by not telling him since she is also employed by the university. What are some of you not understanding?

Ohio State with a classic overreaction before getting all facts and coming to a thoughtful decision. Have to appease the angry mob these days

I think we understand just fine. Just not sold on all the facts of the case. Seeing as this story has changed just about every hour, seems a little early to implicate anyone of breaking anything.

I've not seen anyone saying if he knew about it and did nothing then he deserves to keep his job.

He's required by his contract to report any misconduct like this, not the law. Only mandated reporters are required by law to report these types of things.

Just a reminder, 5 months ago everyone was 100% certain that Sean Miller had to be fired ASAP to preserve whatever integrity the school had left. If Arizona had done that, it would have been a complete disaster. A thorough investigation needs to be done, even if it means dragging into the season.

Rule. Just like in politics, BJF has no idea what he's talking about.

Meyer has a Title IX clause in his newest contract. If he is in violation of it, it gives OSU the option to fire Meyer with cause, meaning they do not have to pay him the remainder of his contract. OSU does not have to fire Meyer because that clause is in there. However, one risk in not firing him would be the potential involvement of the Department of Education slapping the University with a Title IX violation, which can mean fines or loss of federal funding. But there is also a risk that if OSU fires Meyer with cause, Meyer could sue the University to be reinstated or seek damages, should it be found that his dismissal on Title IX grounds is outside the scope of the law.

OSU can also fire Meyer without cause. Legally, they will have then fired him just because, for no reason at all. But they then must pay Meyer the remainder of his contract. He would have no legal recourse to be reinstated or seek damages. This is probably what is going to happen.

To be clear, no one: Urban Meyer, Shelley Meyer, Zach Smith, or anyone else employed at the University or associated with the University is being criminally charged with anything.

Agreed. Nothing wrong with taking their time on this and getting it right

How is it an overreaction? They placed him on paid administrative leave while everything gets sorted out. It was the right move. The last thing OSU needs is to mishandle this whole thing.

Yeah, I don't get the statement that they've already overreacted. They seem to be handling things in a measured, professional manner actually.

I also don't know why Bluth is so upset here. He's the guy who claimed Urban was no longer a great coach last season.

I don't think a head coach should be responsible for the actions of his coaches; of course I didn't think Paterno should have been either.[Not a fan of either school] The severity of the offences is different, but the principle remains the same, those who advocated Paterno being fired have no leg to stand on in this case if they don't demand that Meyer should be fired.

idk about that. I think there's a pretty massive gulf between continuing to let a serial child molester host kids in your facilities, and continuing to let a guy who beat up his wife coach your wide receivers.

If in fact that Paterno actually knew what was going on, instead of the supposition that he knew.
I am in no way saying that the offences are the same or even in the same ballpark, but the principle remains the same.

I think a lot of people are ignorant about what all the hubbub is about here. It's not about Meyer having to be responsible for the actions of his coaches, because he shouldn't be. What Meyer is responsible for is taking the appropriate actions when one of his coaches does screw up, not try and cover it up and then lie about it, if that's indeed what happened.

I think, after Penn St, OSU doesn't really have a choice. They have to get Meyer away from the program, investigate, and come to a conclusion. The university handling the investigation the right way is the only thing that might save them in the court of public opinion if he did know what was going on.

I agree with you that there is some overreaction though, from the public and the media. A lot still has to be looked into before saying he covered anything up or not.

Guys.. he is gone. Only a matter of time. Witch Hunt is in full defcon 1. Maybe at some point Americans will wake up to the fact our freedoms are being taken away in the name of political correctness. Due Process has already been removed.

I'm curious as to what freedom you are referring that is taken away in the name of political correctness.
