THE Ohio State Football Program

Postby Bestoutwest » Wed Aug 22, 2018 11:04 am

Wowzers, looks like there is potential for quite the mess at Ohio State. I could give two hoots about the coaches, especially Urban Meyer. He's made his money, he'll be fine if he's been intelligent about it. However, all the kids that decided to go there, this could work out pretty badly for them depending on what happens. I always felt that way about the kids playing for Penn State after it hit the fan there.

Here's a slew of articles. Looks like Ohio State is still highly looked upon by the ranking gods.

I ain't posting about THE Ohio state again, last time it got me banned! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Did anyone note that they are reading the report to the Trustees so that there is no writing to be requested under the Freedom Of Information Act?

By the way, I will lay odds that they do not fire him and I am not sure he will even get a suspension!

Trustees debated for over 5 hours and now they have the room set up for a press conference. If they were going to fire him I don't think it would have taken them that long. But we should find out soon. I hate all of this for the kids, but not Meyer. But in all fairness, he kicked our butt when he was at Florida.

I just saw this on twitter...

OSU Board of Trustees: We have fired Urban Meyer and hired a new coach.

*Enter Urban Meyer wearing a fake mustache*

OSU Board of Trustees: Please welcome the new head coach, Rural Meyer.

I can see this going either way. He'll have to get a suspension as that's the type of society we live in now. If Zeke Elliot can get one for alleged abuse with no charges, so can he. And I wonder if they'll drag that one up, hadn't thought of it until now. I don't know that I see him getting fired over this, I don't believe it to be in the same league as molesting a bunch of little kids and turning a blind eye to that. However, this meeting is taking forever, so whatever it is that they're doing in there, they are making sure they're doing it right. All "t"s will be crossed and all "I"s dotted so that he can't sue them. It will be interesting to see what happens.

I'm sure old Nick Sabban is enjoying the heck out of this, too, as OSU is usually about the only team that can beat them. Any distraction is a good distraction.

I just read the Meyer gets a 3 game suspension. Cupcake teams in those weeks, that is all I will say. T OHS will have to struggle with this for a while.

I guess it’s better than nothing, but it’s kind of expected. I’m not sure they could really do more.

I don't know about y'all, but I'm sure not throwing my friends and workmates under the bus for every little thing they are accused of, and I'm sure not calling them out unless I am DANG sure they are guilty.

It played out about like everyone thought it would.
Mostly same as the Jameis Winston/FSU saga did a few years ago.
I'm honestly surprised the regents gave him 3 games....figured it would be 1 game at the most, considering how successful his record is.

He admitted being guilty...of at least lying.
But it seems you aren't alone in your way of thinking regarding OSU.

We had a guy at work that was arrested for attacking his wife. The manager and I couldn't wait to get rid of him, but had to wait the few days he was in jail to have a viable excuse to get rid of him. I look at anyone that would attack their family as being unhinged and not someone I would want to be around. And, I DANG sure wouldn't be friends that would put themselves in the position of being accused of abusing their family. When there's smoke, there's usually fire.
