Except in the state of Ohio, if there is evidence of physical violence, an arrest is required.
What happened to your wife should never happen to anyone. But what happened to your wife has no bearing whatsoever on this story. It doesn’t change any facts. It doesn’t make you smarter than anyone else here.
It does make me wonder if you have an agenda.
Well there is independant circumstantial evidence for one and actual testamony about the other from third parties. I know which one I'm leaning to, because its the only one that really matters.
As to your last two sentences: CS came "into the house" saying she was abused. So should we not refuse to believe her? Yes, no charges were filed but it's foolish to think that means there's ZERO chance nothing happened.
We should refuse to REACT without verifying. Otherwise we are chicken Little, Peter with the Wolf, use whatever literary character you want. You're right. I never said NOTHING happened. But you know WHAT could've happened and there's MORE evidence supporting than anything McM posted? The fact that CS MADE IT ALL UP.
And in the end, even if CS is at fault here as well (because ZS definitely IS), OSU still has grounds to let go of Urban due to the clauses in his contract about representing the university well,
WAIT! So you're saying that even if CS made this all up, Urban should still be fired? Who are you? Jim Harbaugh? What did URban do wrong? Please expand on that. And IF CS made this all up, what did ZS do wrong in 2015?
Hypothetical question back. If Thor came down from the sky and pounded his hammer saying that Ohio State is a creation of Loki, and the weasels are Odin's school, would you change your allegiance? See? I can come up with even a more stupid question.
You know who else has done alot of damage? All the idiots who reacted to the initial story by taking it as gospel and called for Urban Meyer to be fired.
Of course, this is pure speculation
And Gawd Knows there hasn't been enough of that yet; so keep spewing fiction.
I think most people here need to take a step back and a deep breath. Yes, this is a bombshell report IF it turns out to be true.
Oh, so we're supposed to accept Brett McMurphy's report at face value, but not Jeff Snook? Jeff Snook has already demonstrated better jounalistic practices that McMurphy.
If Snook shows the texts from both mothers then that's different. Right now it's a Facebook post with as much credibility as McMurphy's original post.
I thought we already determined that undocumented texts are meaningless. Are you claiming that Jeff Snook never received a text from Tina Carrano and just made it up out of whole cloth? Do you realize how stupid that sounds? He reported that he heard from her via text (i.e. disclosed it) and reported what she said. I guess you can decide whether he actually got it or not. If your wife comes into the house soaking wet, and when you ask why, do you refuse to believe her when its raining too? Are you that overly scrupulous?
HUH? Ummm, the only people that have ever brought her into this story are McM and CS.
What do you think?
I just sent an e-mail to John Feinstein. I had heard him about a week or so ago call for Urban to be fired in one of his 1-minute commentaries on 92.3 The Fan. I just asked him if he was going to publicly retract his statement in light of all the new parts to the story. We'll see if he even responds to me.
Have you been following all the developments in this case or did you just type that so you could see your name in lights? I'm glad the committee is taking its time. Its allowed more of the story to come out. And that's assuming that they didn't already have all this information.
Three members of the committee are highly regarded attorneys with impeccable reputations. I doubt they will look to play the Blame Game. Only small minded people do that. Now, ex-politicians on the other hand??????
You're projecting based on nothing except your own imagination at this point. So why post this? Haven't we seen enough of that in the last two weeks?
I'd like to see those statistics. That sounds like total bullshit.
OK, If she's not bat-shit crazy; how about abject evil?
There aren't enough concrete details here to prove or even strongly suggest one way or another that there was no abuse.
There shouldn't have to be, This kind of attitude is exactly the kind of bullshit that lead to the public lynching of a coach and university. All that matters is that there is NO CONCRETE evidence that abuse ever happened. God help us if unsubtantiated claims can lead to personal destruction. That's how fascism works.
Scapegoat for what? Have you been following the latest developments? Gene has done NOTHING wrong.
There was a lot of background shit to the Earle Bruce firing. And none of it was a lynching.
This play by play guy sucks. I don't give a shit who the intended receiver was....Tell me who the effin DB was in coverage!
You sound like an idiot I served with on a jury. "Well, the defendant was charged, so she must be guilty of something."
In Native American culture owls are harbingers of death
I dare say Courtney’s Mom has way more facts then you. You might want to take Mark Twain’s advice and not post and just let people THINK you’re and idiot than type something and prove it.
You’re not overly familiar with logic either apparently if you tried to compare McMurphy’s work with Snook. Snook interviewed more than one perso; in fact one from each side of the family. Just because you don’t know him doesn’t mean anything other than I suspect you are a troll.
Or that CS doctored the document since it doesn't match the ones the police have.
