I consider Heather Dinich to be one of the better ESPN writers with interesting insights on a range of college football issues. However, her 8/23 commentary where she accused Urban Meyer of lying and "still doesn't get it" regarding domestic violence and "apologizing more to Buckeye Nation than he did to Courtney Smith" has crossed a journalistic line. Didn't she read the report? Why yes, she acknowledged as much on the podcast. Then why didn't she report that the investigative committee found that he did not cover up domestic violence and did not consider his statement to the BIG10 reporters a lie? The 3-game suspension was for failing "to take sufficient management action relating to Zach Smiths misconduct". Monday morning quarterbacking at its worst! For that, Heather (and every other ESPN opinion writer) wants one of the top coaches in a generation fired? She goes further to depict any and all Buckeye fans that do not agree with her as immoral and stupid.
Heather, if being interested in truth and fairness makes me immoral or stupid, I plead guilty. The committee is on record and the national media (looking at you ESPN) are either willfully ignorant, of just lazy hacks. Take your pick. How Urban Meyer can speak civilly to any of those clowns in the future is a testament to his character, and an indictment of theirs.
