I'm not too often stunned by news. But this caught me off guard. Right now would be a good time to be a fly on the wall inside the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.

The Maurice Clarett strip play against Sean Taylor still gets me every time. What an incredible play.

Comment 23 Aug 2018

My two biggest frustrations from the evening:

1) Buckeye fans who want to continue to think that the suspension handed to Urban Meyer is complete crap/totally underserved/whatever else you want to call it to make the suspension seem outrageously unfair. Read the full investigative report. If you can't, at the very least, put yourselves in the shoes of the BoT and Drake and comprehend why they handed down a suspension, then I think you're simply fooling yourself.

2) The mainstream media narrative (I've largely been watching ESPN) that continues to be entirely one-sided in their communication about the domestic abuse allegations made by Courtney Smith against Zack Smith. I'll say this right up front - I'm not willing to say with certainty that there wasn't domestic abuse going on. But for the mainstream media to claim with certainty that there was domestic abuse (especially physical abuse), that it was always Zack committing it against Courtney, and that Urban Meyer and the program covered it up is to, in my humble opinion, completely gloss over how toxic (from both sides) Courtney and Zack's relationship was and to stand in contrast to some of the strongest-worded findings of the investigative report.

Looking forward to reading the full report. Trying my best to reserve judgment until then. It's hard not to be taken aback at the difference between Gene Smith and Urban Meyer in the press conference. Both were touting the same "company line," but with completely different attitudes/demeanors. I thought Urban came off as disinterested, unfocused, and frankly super pissed. And whether justified in having those emotions or not, I think he didn't do himself any favors.

Comment 22 Aug 2018

If indeed Urban is back (as I think most of us are cautiously assuming), can you imagine the chip on his shoulder that he'll coach with this year? Not to mention how that will carry over to the way the team plays for him.

Comment 20 Aug 2018

I get what you're saying. The first issue (reporting Smith) is probably a clear cut issue. Either Urban did or didn't. The second issue when it comes to Smith and his character flaws and Urban's decision to keep him on staff is a much more complex situation. Of course hindsight is 20/20 now, but I fear this is where Urban's relationship with Earle Bruce may have clouded (and perhaps repeatedly clouded) his judgement when it came to retaining Smith. How the university views that latter issue (Urban continuing to keep Smith on staff) could also, in my humble opinion, be a potential reason for termination.

Comment 20 Aug 2018

Here early so I don't miss anything. Hoping that this whole saga is a lot of huffing and puffing without blowing the whole house in. But if Urban is indeed found culpable (of either not reporting Smith and/or of gross negligence in keeping him on staff), then the hammer needs to drop.

Surprised that no one has commented that they also posted for another position - Recruiting Operations Coordinator. Better dust off those resumes...
