Wow, been following the story and all the comments around interweb last night and today.
Meyer looks like such a smart guy, but reading everything like what happened in Florida as well, he's like win at all cost no matter what crap he has to ignore, and kinda stoopid when it comes to certain things.

There was a good article about 2 weeks about how winning comes first for Urban but it's lost in all the stuff brought out in the last day

The knives are coming out now.
Just been watching this Youtube video by Project Veritas on ex florida players dishing dirt on Urbs:

Although it was posted just after the "administrative leave" news, the video looks too well put together that it must have been made a while before it happened.

247 Sports showed a list of HC who were put on administrative leave. There were 8 coaches listed including Petrino and only 1 wasn't fired (because he hit a player in the helmet so probably not in the same league as the others).

Ominous for Meyer, its a lot for Ohio State to defend publicly.

I love college ball, but it’s as murky as hell isnt it, with scandal.
I watched the Happy Valley doc last week, shortly after finishing reading Scoreboard Baby.
A real double whammy.
Now this?
Crikey. What next?

By them announcing they want to have it wrapped up in 14 days makes me think he will survive it.

Yep. And with his statement saying he passed the info up the chain. He and OSU can cover themselves. I think he survives.

Even if they're lying and Urbs is guilty, they have a chance to see if they can find someone willing to fall on the sword for him.

Yeah he's definitely not getting the Ohio State AD who is in charge of the investigation has went on holiday for 7 days of the 14 it will take to wrap up the investigation.

Never known a timescale placed against a 'thorough' investigation before. Also like it how they aren't talking to the victim of the alleged abuse.... I can see him being suspended for a couple of games and being told anything like this happens again and you're out.
