Wow.  What a stand by Ohio St.  That will certainly will send a harsh message.

In contrast, UNC athletes were given 4 games for selling their shoes.

The college sports caste system is alive and well.

NCAA violations vs. nothing to do with NCAA.  Remember Ohio State fired Jim Tressel when he covered up his players selling merchandise to get tattoos.

Don't forget. The NCAA says Mich St broke no rules during the whole Larry Nassar thing.

What exactly do you think Meyer did that deserved more than 3 games?

Can't we just destroy his whole family for reporting the incident within 72 hours after a solid witch hunt trial by media? Oh. Wait. His last name isn't Paterno. 
I'm honestly fine with 3 games.

Meyer came off as a jackas* on TV after multiple reports of domestic abuse.

I don't think I'm alone when I say that men who hurt women, children, and even animals (I'm thinking pets here) are bad guys.

It's more about what Meyer didn't do. This guy Smith should have been gone long ago.

I'm not 100% on what rules were broken. I do know that Meyer looks ugly for defending a wife beater. It sucks because he could have hired 99 great guys and this dude Smith, but all we know about is the failure.

In the end, Meyer makes the big money, so the responsibility should land in his hands, though I don't care about fining games. That 9/15 game against #16 should be a good test without the great coach.

ALLEGED wife beater.  He maintains his innocence, was never even charged after police investigations, her own mother has publically said she doesn't believe the allegations and that her daughter vowed to ruin her now ex-husband, etc.  Sometimes the husband isn't in fact the violent one in a relationship.  Sometimes he is, but that is what the police and court system is for. 

I think Meyer should have fired him as well, and he had plenty of grounds totally unrelated to his relationship with his wife (rehab, coming late during his divorce, etc.), but I don't think you can just say he defended a wife beater as that is far from proven and may in fact not be the case at all.

3 games seems about right to me given the totality of the situation.

I have 2 very good friends in the sports information department's of D1 college programs. One was at Maryland for a long time and knew all the coaches and trainers that were involved in their football related death earlier this year. Another friend is at a Big Ten school and has known Meyer for quite some time.

They both say 90% of the coaches in D1 college athletics are dirty and complete ****s or they don't win. My friend from Maryland took a job at a small D1 school out in California that doesn't have a football program to get away from it.

Pretty sad state of affairs.

Urban set to retire after the Rose Bowl.  Jason Day will take over making for a seamless transition much like OU with going from Stoops to Riley.
