Problem is he does pretend to be a journalist, or at least tries to break news. And he’s not very good at it.

On the contrary, he's great at breaking stories, it's just those pesky little facts that give him so much trouble.

I thought that OSU was required to give a 24 hour public notice of any BoT meeting that was not already scheduled (next BoT meeting is scheduled for Aug 31st).

Honest question: who is this guy?  His affiliation (or whatever that is) is not one I recognize. 

That said, I wouldn’t be surprised that the bot is meeting - they are at the end of their stated timeline. It makes sense to gather and review what they have to this point. It doesn’t mean anything either way.

IF there's no skeletons in the closet, which seems likely.  If there was something earth-shattering, we probably would've heard by now.

OSUFlash's picture

OSU and everyone involved in the investigation are a bunch of chicken shits if you ask me including the Drake. He himself is on record as making the following statement. "People don't come to Ohio State to be ordinary." Well if they cave to public pressure and do what is easy instead of what is right, that in my eyes is the very definition of ordinary.

osuflash

HS
hetuk2002's picture

He said he had an open mind to the committee's findings, I don't think he'll aim to counter move with the BoTs if there is no evidence to do so. I think if it's cut and dry that everyone did their job and Courtney's not credible then they'll go with it. If they feel that things did go wrong I think they'll chop some heads. My one concern is a suspension without any evidence, I'd much rather see mandated education on domestic violence and/or mental health than any unwarranted punishment. It's an opportunity for everyone still around to know what to look for, what to do, if someone might be struggling at home.

How wonderful. Can this thing just be over? Reinstate Urban already.

HS
BuckeyeMark's picture

Not sure how much this matters but dumping news on Friday afternoon is a time tested way of doing something unpopular because the it doesn't get the full blitz till monday.

And since it's my comment I'll just spin it the way I want: that means they are keeping Urban with minimal punishment (maybe 1 game suspension) and they're gonna announce this afternoon because they know some elements are going to go nuts on them for not firing everyone, suspending football forever, and burning down Ohio Stadium.  

HS
OldColumbusTown's picture

The question here then becomes... unpopular with who?  Unpopular with the fans, or unpopular with the media?

HS
Unky Buck's picture

He explains it but you probably posted before his edit. I think that's self-explanatory but Ohio State fans are certainly the minority in the scheme of this so leaning more towards the unpopular opinion of those outside the OSU net.

I think “we found coach Meyer followed all pertinent university policies and procedures for dealing with such accusations” would make for a quick decision.

I made  red wine garlic rosemary marinade and have a 2lb steak sitting in that as we speak. Will fire up the grill a bit later and slow cook that to perfection. Looks like it will either be celebrating the return of the Urb or to help me swallow the bitter pill that was his [unjust] departure.

Either way, we're 2 weeks from kickoff. Go Bucks!

HS
Zimmy07's picture

I would normally feel slightly revolted at the idea of marinating a steak but your marinade sounds intreging. 

HS
buckeye_in_WI's picture

It provides solid flavor for sure. I use it on a london broil so makes a cheaper cut of meat taste real nice. Theres a smattering of other ingredients in it too but for brevitys sake listed the main 3.

Also, looks like this will end up being just a regular friday night steak. Oh well, off to fire up the grill anyways

I'm going with Urban isn't pacing. He's probably enjoying the time off to some extent since it may be the 1st time in decades he's been able to not deal in football related matters.

HS

He isn't pacing, he is game planning! Game planning to come out swinging! Game planning to put up some BIG BIG numbers against his opponents on the football field. Game planning to crush his opponents in the media. Game planning for how he will be re-introduced to HIS team. He isn't pacing, he is game planning his come back and he is going to be ready.

HS
Dstacify's picture

Well Snook did post a lengthy diatribe to FB yesterday basically declaring war on ESPN and calling Finebaum a complete fraud (with a past quote about Finebaum from none other than Steve Spurrier I might add). Not information we don't already know but I quite enjoyed reading it nonetheless. In regards to the investigation I don't think OSU intentionally deals in leaks, especially not regarding something as important as this. Leaks are what dysfunctional organizations like the Cleveland Browns are prone to doing. OSU might be a lot of things but I don't think they're dysfunctional. The Smith and Carano families on the other hand.

11 Strong.

I've said many times and still believe that Urban Meyer keeps his job. Gene, I'm not so sure about, but he probably keeps his, too. Zach getting his job back? Less than zero chance.

I also want to state that these are my personal opinions. If someone is telling you today that they know what is going to happen to Urban Meyer, they are lying. Nobody knows. OSU has this locked down.

BuckeyeRealist13's picture

I appreciate the response, do you believe in your opinion that Urban will serve some sort of suspension?

I'm not sure why everyone was thinking this is going to end today. In fact I will be mildly surprised if this doesn't last till next Friday. They said the group had 14 days to do the investigation, not have a verdict. They will probably work through the weekend, have a meeting with Drake next week and a Board meeting middle of next week. A few days to get all their statements in a row and then a press conference. This is going to drag on.

southbuc's picture

Here’s how it should go.  Urban acted properly in his duties as coach, however he holds very highly his responsibility to model the values of the program. As such, because he does not believe he fulfilled these responsibilities to the best of his ablility in dealing with the media at Big Ten media day, Urban has voluntarily imposed a 2 game suspension upon himself. In addition, to show his continued dedication to protecting women, he has committed to donate $1m to charities that support battered and abused women. 

HS
GrayDay's picture

If the Big 10 media day thing is the only negative on Urban, I think an apology is sufficient.  I suspect Urban did what was right based upon what he knew at the time (which happen to be right in the middle of the frickin season), but everyone at OSU got blindsided by the new disclosures.  Considering the much wider range of observations about "what happened" revealed over just the past week from key principals, its actually a good sign that Drake wants to assure the "context" of decisions made back then is well understood. 

HS

There is Pr damage to repair. Urban voluntarily taking punishment and donating money would help this.
