    In most places there doesn’t need to be evidence for the man to be taken away for the night.

    The bottom line is Urban lied to the press.

    Of course, if he were the President of the United States he could lie his arse off about pretty much anything, even about your health care, but if you coach a college football team you must be perfect.

    Since the OJ trial the media thinks they have become the justice system.

    Imagine losing your job because one of your employees or associates has a fucked up significant other.

    I personally don't give a shit if they lie to the pathetic press. It is none of theirs or our business. Sounds like he went through the proper channels. As far as lying to the press. So what? Paul Feinbaum can go screw himself and so can greenberg.

    Yea, Urban stepped in it there. Nevertheless, he DID report it to the AD.

    He has been on paid Admin Leave since last week. Is there a link or something that actually says he was now fired??

    I'm a rabid Ohio State fan. I can tell you that, like most everything else, the media has completely botched basic facts on this event. For instance, the guy that broke the story claimed that coach Zack Smith was arrested in 2015 for domestic violence and was nevertheless retained by Urban Meyer. That is flat-out FALSE. Smith was NOT arrested and there was ZERO evidence to support any allegation that Smith had engaged in domestic violence.

    Based on information in the public domain, it appears exceedingly unlikely to me that Meyer will be fired.

    And what's ironic is that the media is complaining that Urban wasn't honest when he answered those questions at the B1G Media Days event while simultaneously spewing all sorts of untruths themselves. LOL.
