    Haven't found a report/source yet but the local radio station just got one with text messages between Shelley Meyer (Urbans wife) and Zach Smiths wife from 2015 including pictures of her bloody and bruised up. This is going to be very difficult for Urban to dig himself out of after saying he knew nothing about the situation during last weeks press conference. Will update once I see an article out on the situation. Not good. Not good at all.

    First article just came out (that I know of)

    Text messages I have obtained, an exclusive interview w/the victim & other information I have learned shows Ohio State coach Urban Meyer knew in 2015 of domestic abuse allegations against a member of his coaching staff despite his denial last week facebook.com/TheBrettMcMurp…

    Meyer is a downright liar and always has been.

    2015 was confusing because there is another Zachary Smith from the same county in the public records for felonious domestic violence. Not the same person. Coach Zach Smith was never in the searchable public records in 2015. Never charged or arrested. However, Powell police did generate two paper reports for this coach, Zachary Smith. So yes, there is substance to 2015. That explains why there "was nothing to it," as Urban's response. Well, there was something to it, it was just not searchable on line. And, compounding the confusion was that there was a Zachary Smith with a 2015 charge but a different person. Urban is going to be in hot water.

    I guess Zach Smith went off the deep end and sent out a text saying he was going to hunt down everyone who wronged him and Anthony Rothman (radio host here in Columbus) stopped reading and just said wow... this gets really bad and they went to a commercial break

    No dawg in this fight. Text messages to Urbs wife do not prove that he was aware of what was going on. Of course, in the court of public opinion, they will burn him.

    True but some texts Shelley responded she would tell Urban what was going on. Who knows what happens now, like I said though. This is now a very tough hole to come out of for Urban. Even if he picks his words and stories perfectly it may not be enough

    Karma is a real 8itch!

    No doubt Urban is a great football coach but as in 99% of humans its easy to justify wrongs when you have "yes men" all around you & everyone telling you its about wins. Add the fact your making 8 million a year it would be very difficult to think 99.9% of people would do anything different than what he did.

    NOW SAYING THAT, as a leader of young men you have to be willing to put character, morals, and ethics above all else. You have to set the example and be above it all. There are very few who live by those rules. I am not giving Urban a pass nor does he deserve it, I am just saying the situation he and others like him are in its not as easy as we make it out to be. As someone who hires and fires people I always have one or two people around me that respectfully challenge me in a lot of decisions and areas. It makes life more challenging but it is best in the long run.

    As a Husker fan its not my place to tell OSU how to run their program. If I was the AD there it is a no win situation of sorts.

    5yrs ago I state confidently Meyer skates Scott free. Today, I'd say it's 50/50, if not 60/40 he is let go.
    And many many other things will now come out, like a feeding frenzy, the blood is in the water. No more so than on a College campus......

    Not saying he does/doesn't deserve it ... Just stating how the pendulum has swung. And once this gets a taste, it is never satisfied till it kills

    I am going to predict that Schiano will take over as interim. Very bold prediction, I know.

    Sounds like this time a year from now, Bob Stoops will be explaining how Big Ten defenses don’t get enough credit and the Big 12 is overrated.

    Weve all known hes a sleazy greaseball. Tressell had to sit 5 games over tattoos. This is much worse than that. Buh bye Urban

    This will test how much tOSU values wins. If Meyer went 7-5 last year, he might already be axed.

    He's no Calipari. But we'll wait for all the facts to come out. If he's indeed as big of a sleaze as John I hope we send him packing for this black eye.

    We all know the NCAA won't do anything, however, it will be interesting to see what Ohio State does. If all this is true, the pressure from the public nowadays might force the school do so something.

    Dudes, come on now. He doesn't need to be let go for this. If the AD pulls the trigger he should be let go immediately after. Unless he was paying cops to look the other way, this *should* be a non-issue.

    This always happens to Ohio State, instead of handling shit RIGHT WHEN it happens it gets pushed off and tried to be swept under the rug. This goes for other schools too.

    Going back to Tressel if he would have handled those problems ASAP he'd still have a job, now Meyer is getting heat. Pics sent to his wife means he KNEW.........my God.


    If any head coach or AD nowadays knows about something its ALWAYS best to deal with it RIGHT AWAY because if not it will bite you in the ass later......and it will turn out worse for you. This goes for Pro sports as well like the Ray Rice incident that the Ravens knew about BEFORE that video came out, they seen it first and did nothing.

    I, for one, am completely shocked that Pope Urban could ever find himself in such a situation. Matt Elam thinks he just needs to have a little faith...

    I just don't see anything coming from this. The man has won 90% of his ganes at OSU. I'm not saying it's right, but that'll buy him protection. Unless something else comes out, I just don't see this being enough to take him down.

    Nobody wants Urban at THE except THE fans. And if this is true, THE fans won't want him either. It will be a manhunt.

    Not a surprising comment coming from a gator. Did you feel that way back when his uf players were committing infraction after infraction and possibly getting away with murder? When a woman is getting beaten by her husband, it's time to be the moral police.
