I think it’s the first game they are putting on the new ACC Network, which incidentally, is wholly owned by ESPN. Go figure

Welp. I did not expect to see this news today, but I get it. He has done everything he could, and then some, to take care of, and drastically improve on everything associated with the football program. Hell. More like the whole athletic program!! Now it’s time for him to take care of him! I remember 8 years or so ago being devastated about Tressel being let go and thinking “well damn. There goes everything!” Somehow this seems more devastating, yet oddly satisfying since he did it his way.

It's going to come down to this. She said all the coach's wives knew. So they interview all the coach's wives. "Did you know?" "Did you tell your husband" Then they interview all the coaches. "Did you know?" "Did you tell Urban?" If Shelley say she never told, the assistants say their wives never told them, then Shelley Meyer gets fired from the college of nursing. If an assistant coach knew but did not tell Urban, then that coach gets fired. If anyone told Urban... well..... yeah

So, correct me if I am wrong here: Everyone can agree that Shelley Meyer DID know. Urban has already said he did not. I find it reasonable that she never said anything since the man was always so busy and there was a lot she filtered before going to him with it. Plus the police never even filed charges. OH and the ex's own family said don't do anything. So why are all the guns pointed at Urban when they should be pointed at Shelley? She is an employee of the University as well (college of nursing). Did she report it? 

The way I see this panning out is that Urban truly did not know, Shelley gets fired from the college of nursing and the sun continues to rise.

I don't think it is fair to say the defense struggled. They did hold Cincy to 70 yards rushing so Cincy had to move the ball somehow. Sure, I wish the secondary didn't give up a ton of yards either but when you look at it... the run was basically taken away so what do you expect? Cincy to not try to throw it a ton? I think they showed improvement but still have to get better.

I don't know if this is completely true. For starters I can't recall any other time that OSU was held to a strict timetable on when a position could be hired. Was the HC job posted before Urban was hired? I don't remember. Also Gordon Gee was famous for creating positions out of nowhere and naming whomever he wanted to them, best example I can think of was former Ohio Rep Joyce Beatty who was named Sr VP of Outreach and Engagement. A new position that there was never any job posting for, Gee just appointed her. In addition (and sorry for throwing out some legal junk here) Ohio Revised Code, Chapter 3335 is the law that gives OSU the authority it has and it makes no mention of any waiting period. ORC 3345 governs all other universities in Ohio with the exception of OSU. It's late and I have not read all of 3345 but from a strictly high level review it does not appear OSU would be violating any rules by hiring someone whenever they please.
