For the 2015 police call, then and current police reports seem to conflict over whether the aggressor was actually arrested or not.

With what's known, I'm not sure what happens with Urban. I think he's obviously out if it's proven that he knew, but there may be a case for (hard to believe) plausible deniability that his wife never informed him.

This coming from someone who worked in law enforcement...DV cases are the most frustrating because an absurd amount get tossed to the side because the victim refuses to continue the prosecution. If both parties are present when the police arrive an arrest can be made. If the primary aggressor isn't there then the victim can decide whether to sign a warrant or the police can if there are visible marks. Most times those cases are turned over to the prosecutor I wouldn't exactly place this whole this on the police being that there are many issues out of their control.

What I find very odd about all of this is how the police didn't more involved back in 2015 and make this a very public thing. The reporters article that claimed to have text messages about it says she called the police and told them not to come to her house. I don't know all the facts, but that just didn't fit in with this story when I read the article. It's been very public 3 years later and she has been calling for people's heads. I'm just a bigger deal wasn't legally made when it happened.

Bc itís not a big deal legally. Too many ppl are viewing this as a Criminal Trial, itís not. Right or wrong, itís all about public opinion. And once again, itís the lie that sinks someone. If Meyer had just acknowledge he knew of the issue, but didnít understand the severity, heíd be getting flack, but heíd still have a job

Placing him on administrative leave is the right thing to do until they investigate what actually happened. If it turns out Meyer covered it up, he deserves to go IMO.

All for a replaceable coach. I'm reading that the only reason Meyer was so favorable towards Smith is because his grandpa is Earl Bruce.

Agreed. Put blame where it's needed, the guy that actually did the assault.

Yes if he covered it up. But is he obligated to intervene in another mans relationship? No

Exactly correct.

Let's imagine last week Meyer releases something like this

Quote:
I’d heard about the 2015 reports, but the police didn’t file charges, so I relied on their judgement. I believe in second chances and really wanted to believe that Zach was a good guy who just had issues with alcohol, but could be put back on the right path. I was horrified when I learned that there was more to this incident than I’d heard from the police reports. Clearly I made a mistake in giving Zach a pass in 2015 and really wish I’d handled the situation differently.
What happens? He gets ripped by the media and is the topic of a bunch of thinkpieces for a few weeks.

Instead, he came out defiant and pretending he’d never heard of any of it, so now he’s on administrative leave and likely looking at being fired in disgrace.

Yes and no. I think the main reason Day is getting the nod is because he's one of Urb's boys from being a GA at Florida and working for Adazio at Boston College. I personally like this set up if Day ends up being more of an overseer and the other two guys actually run their sides of the ball very autonomously.

As far as skeletons, I don't really consider Schiano to have any. His wrongdoing IMO appears to be mostly thinking Tennessee is still a good job and being connected to Penn State wrongdoing by idiot UT fans that thought hiring Schiano was beneath them.

That's one of the most interesting details in all of this IMO. Smith has arguably been their crappiest assistant coach for the duration of the Meyer era.

We live in an odd world where knowledge of an evil is punished greater than perpetrating the actual evil. Don't get me wrong, Urb deserves what he gets if this pans out, but in the end he'll lose more than Smith ever did.

Just saw that earlier today Zach Smith said he's going to bring everyone at Ohio State down with him. Buckle up boys, this could get fun.

Eh, Smith lost his family, job, and will never coach again. Meyer will still be a millionaire and get another shot at some point.

I find it odd she had numerous chances to pursue charges and decided not to so her husband wouldn't get thrown under the bus. Now she's throwing people under the bus left and right. I my opinion that's a strange pattern of behavior.

Usually on your side. But if he covered up repeatedly for a serial wife beater, he deserves to be fired

Guy has always been a scumbag. He ran a prison camp at Florida. Osu fans just looked the other way when he became their elite coach. Low morals is nothing new from him

The powers that be at tOSU should tell people without standing (students, alums, staff, etc.) to GFT.

How long before hundreds of Buckeye fans and students are out in front of Urban's house chanting "Urrrbbban Meyerrr....Urrrbbban Meyerr....!!"? That'll be the true sign the end is near.
