My first reaction to the rally was that it was an embarrassing exercise of unconditional support for a coach currently placed on administrative leave and subject to an investigation. Just sounds bad to me, because if shit comes to light then everyone there looks like a grade A fool for doing it.
But after reflecting a little bit, i'm alright with it. People over-reacted hardcore on the first day that Urban should be fired (or is being fired) and every other tiny rumor that floats around during these processes. At this point nobody cares about zach and courtney anymore, people only want to talk about urban. So if Urban is on trial in the public relations world, it makes sense for some people to come to his defense. Because OSU can't do it during the investigation, Zach Smith saying urban shouldn't be fired doesn't convince anybody.
At least now more media personalities are saying Urban will probably stay. Not saying its related to this rally at all. But the tide is shifting back a little bit.
