Report: Urban Meyer knew about 2015 domestic violence incident involving ex-assistant

Recommended Posts

 

Urban needs to join Art Briles and never coach a college game again. I saw where Vegas has Greg Schiano as the favorite.

Ohio State must fire Urban Meyer if he was protecting serial abuser

That's great that your giving Urban Meyer the benefit of the doubt until proven guilty. You sound like Henry Fonda from 12 Angry Men. Too bad there is evidence that Meyer's wife knew about this and said she would tell Urban about this, but didn't . Maybe Meyer needs to get a divorce over this since his wife didn't warn him.

I guess your right that Urban Meyer deserves the benefit of the doubt on how he runs his program considering his fantastic record at Florida.

During Meyer's six-year tenure at Florida, some 31 players were arrested, with at least 10 accused of crimes ranging from misdemeanor battery to felony domestic assault to felony theft to domestic battery. 

 

As society has evolved, Urban Meyer hasn't

Especially when it involves the media. 

Oh poor Urban! The fake media is going after Urban. The media faked Urban's problems at Florida and now there faking this problem at Ohio State.  Never mind that there is evidence.

I can see now where Herman learned where it was okay to hire a guy like Casey Horney. As a Texas fan it would be tough for Meyer to leave and stop taking top recruits from the state of Texas and also we could be missing the moral advice of the great Urban Meyer.

I think Meyer knew full well what was going on. Ohio St knew full well what they were grtting when they hired him, but they didn't care as long as he won. He did. I don't see how he recovers from this and it may well be a race to see if Ohio St decides to do the right thing before Urban realizes that resigning is in his best interest. Now that the can of worms has opened up, there will be a lot of people getting ready to pile on. If I'm him, I resign before the end of the day, say some fluff about bring the best thing for everyone and maybe he coaches again some day, but Im afraid his ego may not allow it.

Hey, just a little bit of explanation. My feelings towards the media stem from personal experience my wife went through several years ago with something that happened at her work. Thanks to that I have a total dislike of the media and do not trust them whatsoever. They never let the truth get in the way of a good story. I simply don't believe even half of what I read from the so-called media. 

That being said, Urban is pretty much a scumbag and it wouldn't bother me at all if he got fired.

Could Bob Stoops replace Urban Meyer at Ohio State?

 

 

Though Texas coach Tom Herman’s name would be widely associated with an opening at Ohio State, there’s skepticism across the industry that he’d be a real candidate for a variety of reasons including timing, having just entered his second year at Texas.

To be clear, I'm no fan of Urban Meyer.  But I am a fan of the law and justice.  And I'm damn sure not going to convict Myer on social media.  I wouldn't want it done to me and I wouldn't want it done to you.

    • And then there was one . . .  And then there was one. One Texas commit remains in the hunt for a state championship crown – Cuero’s Jordan Whittington. QB commit for 2020 Hudson Card and his Lake Travis team were eliminated by Galena Park North Shore. In other state final games of interest . . . .  Texas 2020 prospect Landon Jackson (DE, Pleasant Grove) will be in action when the defending state champs take on #5 Cuero and Jordan Whittington. Game time Friday is 11 am. Class 3A Div 2 #1 Newton had a mild scare last week with East Bernard coming within 7 points of Newton. This week, the pride of the Panhandle, #4 Canadian is the only thing left standing between the Eagles and a state title. Expect Canadian to give Newton a good game. Grandview vs Malakoff may be the most underrated state final this week. They face off Thursday night at 7 p.m. #3 Liberty Hill takes on #4 La Vega, a match up that has been anticipated for weeks. Could be one of the most exciting class 4A finals ever. Class 5A #1 Aledo has mowed down competition all season. This week, however, Fort Bend Marshall might present a more evenly matched game.  History and tradition meet up against the modern and new when Highland Park takes on #6 Shadow Creek, a school that only recently began varsity football. CAN #4 Longview break the curse? No state title in Longview since 1937. They’ll have to make it through an upstart West Brook squad to get it done. Next to Lufkin and Rockwall, this will be Longview’s toughest test to date. In what may be a game for the ages, #5 Duncanville will take on #2 Galena Park North Shore in the Saturday night cap at AT&T. There will be so much D1 talent on the field at the same time, it will be a better game than many of the bowl games set to be played. SHA’s PICKS GP North Shore over Duncanville

    • Lol Hamm and that looney mawmaw lady.
    • Ags calling their shot.  Sheppard flip
    • Typically, this is the time when they'd get some meaningful playing time (in the bowl game). So I hope they can recover fast enough to play in the Sugar. That said, even if they do, they will not have practiced through the whole period so there would be some rust to kick off.
