Seriously doubt any of this is new, but I will feel better saying it, so here are a couple thoughts I have:
1) The way things were presented last night, one would think Drake should have been held responsible as well - one of the former players pointed this out too (Finkes, I think?). However, the report details make the reasoning far more understandable than the rushed presser did.
2) How differently would the narrative have played out if ZS were suspended and the investigation was about proving DV or not, then firing him when more stuff came up, or would we just be several steps behind the same eventual outcome at this point? Probably the latter, but I can dream the media would have been able to focus on Smith and be satisfied with one firing rather than demanding another.
3) That said, I do believe Meyer absolutely mishandled ZS, but am still not sure if I agree this particular punishment was a good or bad way to handle it. However, report details definitely make me less upset with it than my initial reaction.
