Ohio State fans rally for Urban Meyer as job decision ticks down

Ohio State looked the other way on Urban Meyer from the start

Ohio State University football fans will gather at the Ohio Stadium on Monday evening to protest the school's investigation into head coach Urban Meyer. I SUPPORT: "URBAN MEYER & THE BUCKS O-H-I-O" and one that stated, "INNOCENT 'TIL PROVEN GUILTY ESPN GUILTY OF ABUSE!" with "PROVEN" underlined.

"Ohio State is committed to a thorough and complete investigation", Davidson said in a statement.

The investigation itself is being led by former Chair of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Mary Jo White.

Zach Smith, the Ohio State receivers coach who was sacked last month after being charged with violating a protective order issued for his ex-wife, Courtney, was wide-receivers coach at Temple in 2011 under then-coach Steve Addazio. He also admitted lying to reporters about his knowledge of it.

Colleges that hired Smith after his arrest in 2009 on suspicion of aggravated battery against his pregnant wife have been asked whether they knew about that alleged incident.

"Others stand on the opposite side of the Meyer spectrum, such as ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum, who blasted Meyer after the recent reports". "We look forward to sharing the results of this investigation and any action the university may take". Several of her anecdotes allege that a few of Meyer's assistant coaches, as well as his wife, Shelley, knew about Zach Smith's history of domestic abuse.

"Urban Meyer is on the hot seat and can be wrongfully fired from Ohio State it is up to us Buckeye Nation to help him not just for him but for THE Ohio State University and the great state of Ohio!" After telling the media in the Big Ten session that he "was never told about anything and nothing ever came to light", Meyer said in a statement Friday, "I was not adequately prepared to discuss these sensitive personnel issues with the media, and I apologize for the way I handled those questions".
