This is exactly what I expected to happen, from a HR/business perspective this was a nightmare with no arrests and charges. However The Ohio State University was been tried in the court of public opinion and they had to do something to appease the lynch mob circling around the football program.  Urban is guilty of bringing on a bum from Florida that he should have cut ties with, but he is human and had loyalties to Bruce that ended up costing him 3 games and a lot of heartache. 

No one truly knows what went on in the Smith's home despite what the media claims, and Courtney needed to press charges. Unfortunately for battered women everywhere that isn't always enough.  Courtney also seems to have some issues herself when her own mother is questioning her motives.  Two screwed up people, a screwed up marriage and leadership who at the least should have fired this guy no matter who he was related to.  None of that seems to be something you fire the head coach for but hopefully it makes his judgement on these kind of issues better in the future.

It sure sounds like Herman had some old axes to grind with Smith and possibly Urban.  Urban will be back coaching in a few weeks if this story has any truth to it. Smith needs to get his life straightened out and get a good manufacturing job considering there are so many companies out there that are looking for people to work.

Cue the heated debate by a bunch of people with limited knowledge of who knew what and the entire background of the story.  A lot more information has to come out before I make a judgement one way or the other.  Considering what goes on in a lot of divorces, there is often 2 to 5 sides to every story.  Zach Smith sure looks to be a wife beating bum, anything more than that at this point is pure speculation.

I will give Urban a pass on that one, considering every one and their brother had an opinion on who should start at QB after Cardale led us to the National Championship. Cardale then played awful. He should have went pro and he would have been a high 1st round pick after his performance against bama and a weak QB draft class.

Haskins proved himself on the biggest stage against the team up north.  I loved Burrow's skill set, but Haskins performance leading the Buckeyes to a win in a tough situation showed he is the real deal. Urban Meyer's record speaks for itself though I always wondered why he didn't give these young guys more of a chance when JT was struggling at times throwing the ball down field.

I would much prefer to see him go to the SEC and stick it to bama and Georgia than anywhere close to the midwest or B1G.  He has 1st round NFL potential, but the guy who beat him out has top 5 pick in the draft potential. He gave Ohio State more than a good shot, now he has to move on for what is best for his career. Selfishly, I would have loved for him to stay and give us 2 potential All-American QB's but realistically it wouldn't have been a smart move for him.  He is a graduate of The Ohio State University and I wish him well except if and when he plays against the Buckeyes.

RIP, he had a great legacy as one of the few who got the honor to be the head football coach at The Ohio State University. Probably the best thing about him was that he continued to love the Buckeyes and not be bitter after he was fired.
