As an OSU grad from Cincinnati, what we all witnessed that day was the real-time birth of psychotic-level little brother syndrome. Little brother had the chance to beat big brother but swung and missed. I'll never forget being down at UC visiting HS friends while the OSU-Illinois game was on later that year and the entire house of UC fans were cheering against OSU.

I grew up on the West Side of Cincy, went to OSU undergrad and then moved back to Cincy and went to UC law school a few years later. I would have NEVER guessed the level of little brother syndrome in Cincinnati until I moved back. I had nothing against UC until I went to school there. It blows my mind how much irrational hatred of OSU there is here. I've tried to trace it back to the source and I think half of it stems from the 2002 game in Paul Brown Stadium when UC had three chances to win the game on goal-to-go and couldn't do it. The other half is OSU pilfering Thad Matta from XU.

Haha. I was going to say that since I read all of the articles anyway, maybe it's a fair trade to check for typos in exchange for early access.

Haskins-led offense scores on every other drive through the night except for sitting on the ball in the 4th quarter up big. Our back 7 have a few breathtakingly bad plays, but improve over the course of the game. 42-23 bucks with no points scored in the fourth quarter. Michigan makes another "statement" by running up the score on an outmatched opponent. No one mentions who Bama is playing today...

Bucks go up by 24 in the first half. Run the ball all second half to win by 31.

I got the leggings like two years ago for wifey. I think she wears them less than she actually wants to because I have trouble with... keeping my hands to myself.

What she told Shelley and what Shelley told Urban could be very different. People get emotional after an argument so it's not unthinkable that Shelly would have moderated what Courtney was telling her when (and if) she told Urban. From the Meyers' perspective, this could have very much looked like a young couple continuing to have problems controlling their emotions and going to their friend-mentor family for help.

The Meyers already explained that they had been helping these two starting since 2009, the Smiths also had young kids, it was the middle of the football season, all of which adds to the stress. I'm sure the Meyers, as a veteran "football family," were trying to give this young couple some perspective on how stressful and difficult this type of job and family can be. In that role, I'm sure Urban (and especially Shelley) heard about every friggin' fight they had along the way. At the time, this probably seemed like just another fight, and you can see that Shelley (who was the one Courtney actually talked to) made sure to tell her that if she didn't feel safe, she needed to get out of the relationship. At the end of the day, you have Urban who works on a daily basis with Zach who insists things didn't get out of hand, there's no names in any police report and no charges filed. As a head coach, how much further are you supposed to dig into the issue?

Meyer household 2015:

Shelly: Hey Urban, I think Zach and Courtney got in another one of their fights. **shakes head**

Urban: Yeah, I don't know, Zach is denying that things got out of hand. Apparently things got heated but everything is fine now. He said no one is pressing charges and they're going to working on things. Honesly, I don't know who to believe with those two...

Shelly: Okay, well I'll text Courtney and make sure she's okay.
