We're almost there, guys. The Board of Trustees meets on Wednesday, and hopefully, mercifully, they'll make their decision about how to go forward after all of this mess and we'll know what that is shortly after they do.
Neither Beau or I believe that it's going to be that bad of an outcome for Urban Meyer. Unless the investigation committee discovered that Meyer didn't follow the law or the letter of his contract (as there's no currently available evidence at all to suggest that's the case), then it seems increasingly unlikely that he'll face much more punishment than he already has. The dude has obligations, but if he followed them, then there really isn't a whole lot more to talk about.
Which would be a pretty massive relief, because God knows that I'm extremely tired of this increasingly stupid story. Let's talk football.
Ohio State is 5th in the preseason AP Poll (not bad to bad, not too bad), and Beau and I get into where the Big Ten is ranked overall and what the means for the conference. Wisconsin is going to take some hits. We also talk a little bit about the awesome event in Newcomerstown last weekend, and of course, delve into listener questions via Ask Us Anything (which you can do via e-mail and Twitter).

16:28 Oooooo it's almost time for football! The AP Poll absolutely is a huge deal, which I both love and hate.
27:00 Newcomerstown rules. The end.
31:27 La Poblanita. I'm telling you, it'll change your life.
