SEC Network analyst and ESPN college football figurehead Paul Finebaum believes this is Urban Meyer's final season at Ohio State once he returns from a three-game suspension stemming from the investigation into his knowledge of former assistant Zach Smith's alleged abusive history.
Citing irrevocable damage within the university's administration and athletic department in the wake of college football's biggest offseason story, Finebaum says Meyer's days are numbered.
“I’ve thought a lot about this,” Finebaum said during Monday's weekly appearance on WJOX 94.5 FM. “And you can look and interpret and say whatever you want, but I’ve come to at least an opinion on Urban Meyer that this will be his last season at Ohio State. I just don’t know how much longer this can go on, and I say that because I strongly believe his credibility has been shattered.
