I am sure that there are folks out there who know more about this situation than I do but appears that they may have caught him telling a lie...
I am sure that most of the Ohio State fans will want to turn a blind eye and move on. I am not sure that the media will be so ready to let it die...
I am predicting that he will be the next Texas Tech head coach...
Adios,
Gary

There is a lot to this story. The main problem I see is he kept him on his staff for 3 years after the original report of the guy beating his wife. I guess wins/losses mean more than a persons life to some people. In my opinion it shines a bad light on Meyer’s character on what he is willing to turn a blind eye to. Plus why lie about it from the get go and then 3 days later fess up that you did know about it then.

My problem as well. But Meyer never had cared about moral issues he cares about wins and losses.

Yes, I think he lied, no I don’t think Ohio State fires him.

And I don’t think Tech has the cache, nor cash to hire him if he gets fired

I think he lied to the media - I dont necessarily care about that.

I think Smith should have been fired back in 2015.

I think Meyer should be suspended a few games, but not fired.

The Ohio State University is pretty much life for me and Family.

Meyers statement hurt him. In today's world ignoring physical abuse against women and children isn't tolerated. Personally I would fire him and move on. Meyer is a great coach but ******bag of a human being. He hasn't changed from his days in Florida.

I'm a Buckeye and still have a sister living in Columbus. This is what she is telling me. Ohio State will wrap up it's investigation in two weeks. It's looking better for Meyer now because it appears that he did report up what he knew to the athletic director so he followed what he was supposed to do. He got into trouble because he reported to the press that he had no knowledge. "which I don't blame him" Looks like the AD may be in more trouble than Meyer. She is also saying that it looks like the police department covered it up and it's a mess. What ever happens Ohio States image is going to be pretty tarnished. She thinks that there was just a huge rush to judgment by the press. They just love it when someone as powerful as Meyer does something wrong. I personally don't agree with anything that has happened there so don't shoot the messenger. Jim

Since when did we stop allowing the Police Department to handle these issues? If it happened the police should have been called, charges pressed and end of story. Why are the two wives talking about it instead of the victim and the detective? Did the wife keep quiet because of the money he was making and now things went so far south that she brings it up? Wrong is wrong and a man should never lay his hands on a woman but let’s handle it upfront and all these Universities won’t have to try to save face! It’s called 911!!!!!

One 2015 text exchange between Courtney and Shelley Meyer shows the extent of Shelley’s knowledge of the alleged domestic abuse and that she was concerned for Courtney’s safety.

Shelley: “I am with you! A lot of women stay hoping it will get better. I don’t blame you! But just want u to be safe. Do you have a restraining order? He scares me”

Courtney: “Restraining orders don’t do anything in Ohio-I tried to get protection order which is what started this whole investigation. And that should go through soon finally. It’s hard bc you have to prove immediate danger. Legal system is tough. Basically you have to prove he will kill u to get protective order”

Shelley: “Geesh! Even w the pics? Didn’t law enforcement come to your place ever??”


Urbans wife knew about it in 2015. And was scared of him. (A member of her husbands staff)

I think both Urban and the women beater are lowlifes. Urban should have absolutely done more than just sit by and lie to the media about the abuse. Aside from wining footballs games Urban has very little positive qualities going back to when he was at Florida.

Urban Liar should be fired for enabling domestic violence by one of his assistant coaches for almost 10 years. This first incident was in 2009, the abuser is the grandson of Meyer's mentor, Earl Bruce.

OSU has already started continuing the cover up by putting in the decision in the hands of a select committee of OSU folks, I am sure that committee won't be biased at all.
This right after their unmitigated disgusting disaster with the Doctor.

Everyone, is worried about poor Urban, who is worried about the victim.



Meyer lied about knowing about the 2015 incident, his wife know about it, all the other assistant coaches and wives know about it but the head coach didn't know about it. Same, head coach that is a total control freak about every aspect of the program.

He is a prime example of everything that is wrong with CFB, win at all costs, no matter the cost to innocent women. I hope OSU does the right thing and fires him but don't think they will, if the don't I hope they lose every game they every play. Just like Baylor, MSU and PSU.

It looks like this is being overlooked by many. He followed protocol and reported it to AD. His problems come from then lying about it to the press.

I believe Smith should have been fired, but IF Meyer's statement is correct, which the investigation will prove, then I don't believe he should be fired.

She’s an OSU employee also. If the gal told her she was being abused and mrs Meyer didn’t report it to the title9 office then she needs firing for failure to do so which as an employee she’s obligated.

Urban Meyer knew of the allegation in ‘15, the coach came to him and offered it to him that he was voluntarily going to the police station to discuss the allegations. From what I’ve read Meyer notified the AD about the conversation. I don’t know if the guy was arrested in ‘15 or not, but I’m guessing not as he kept his job with the AD knowing about the conversation between he and Meyer. Had he been arrested he’d have been terminated I feel.

Whether the Police failed to do what’s right or not is another story.

I think Meyer will coach this year (and I don’t like him) as evidence has surfaced he did tell his AD what he knew. He shouldn’t be fired for lying to the Media. His attorney may have told him not to say anything for that matter

I heard that some of the prior incidents had police reports filed. Not sure if that's true or not. If so, along with possibly following protocol, Meyer may not get the boot.

The guy is a POS for retaining this coach on his staff. However, it doesn't sound like he was involved in some type of massive cover-up either.

Does Title IX cover non students? As I read about Title IX, I only see it pertaining to students.

Still a POS though on all accounts, I'm just not sure Title IX will hang Urban Meyer.

Was the coach arrested that did the assault? Guess I am just confused as to why anyone would think that a head coach/boss would go on the NEWS and spill personal information that he may have been unclear about. But now he is in trouble because he "lied" about knowledge of it. I mean why is it a head coach or boss is responsible for making decisions based on personal home matters of his employees when he has no time to "investigate" those issues for himself. Let the cops/law handle criminal matters and based on there verdict head coach/boss makes there ruling as well. Let the coaches coach there sport and do there job, which at that level is to win. With that said I completely agree. If the guy was arrested and charged and then nothing was done or said about the matter and "swept" under the rug then YES I agree, someone should be held responsible for not dealing with it.

Oh and for the record I am in no way a Ohio State fan. I don't really have a team I cheer for. I just watch em all and enjoy the game.

Of course you don't…

They've had plenty of time now to create whatever evidence they need… The A.D., and probably Mrs. Meyer will take the fall, and urban will keep coaching…

That's where I'm at. I don't condone domestic violence, but he didn't do anything wrong. You can't fire a guy for "allegations". Meyer reported it to his boss, so not sure what he did wrong. Lying to the media isn't a crime.

he did not accuse a friend publicly of being guilty of a swirling unproven rumor. he was supposed to save a woman that was unwilling to press charges.

the courts and cops were powerless but a football coach should be held to a higher standard.

if meyer fired the guy, and the guy was found not guilty, or was never even charged, how much would meyer and osu have to settle for, out of court??

the girl didnt want to cost the assistant his job, and in the process brings down the entire program?! its bananas.

Any major college coach can and frequently does hire and fire any coach on his staff for whatever reason.
Happens almost daily.
Hes pulling the ol joe pa excuse that he sent it upstairs and that was that.
No sir, this is not some first line supervisor sending up a minor complaint up the chain of command.
The assistant coach even said meyer told him “if I find out your lying youre fired!” Thats the same interview where the assistant coach went OJ and blamed everything on the victim she was hurt due to defensive measures and cut her finger on his dip can. Even said she abused him.
Meyer knew. Kept him anyway and later lied about it.
He got caught plain and simple.
No if OSU fires him over it is another question.

If you caught Mark Packer show this afternoon, a compliance officer for a Div. I school called in. He stated when it comes to sexual and physical abuse if you are associated with a school then have to report it regardless of conviction or not. So that begs to question what about the other coaches? Did they report ? I think there was a coverup and agree with above police were in on it. Heaven forbid disrupt the almighty Buckeyes football.

Herman left for UH in December 14. So if this latest incidence in question was 2015 he should be clear. But who knows in these deals.

My problem is this. Guys Wife may be legit or crazy, but Urban is the highest paid State employee of Ohio. Buck stops with him. And he kept this guy around long after 2015. He was lucky the face of the Florida franchise was Tebow, cause there were so many arrests and issues there too.

One of the two best college coaches. But at what cost. Fans don’t care. Hell how many Penn State fans supported Jo Pa.

Yep why keep him . I don't care if he followed protocol. I would fire his *** for keeping him. I don't think Ohio St can keep him. His checkered past doesn't help any. I guess as far as Herman goes how long did they know of abuse. I'm sure asst coach didn't just decide one day in 2015 , after 6 yrs of being nice looked in the mirror and said " well today I think I'm just gonna beat the hell out of my wife"

True. Dude had history. But the big things were in 2015. Maybe Herman knew. Maybe everyone knew. But the fact is this was Urbans boy. Grandson of Earl Bruce, Urbans mentor. Look at the resumes of everyone on staff at Ohio State. All were either head coaches or coordinators or high level guys before coming there. Except this guy. Maybe Urban saw something in him, or maybe it was the grandson deal. Hard to be a whistle blower on the most powerful man in the state or his guy. How many knew about Sandusky. Not trying to compare what they did.

According to what I heard if you were an employee you had to report it. Now maybe he was to report to Meyer. I don't know. But either way if the rest or some of the coaches knew they were required to report regardless of how big the man is.
