Ohio State Fans Hold Cringeworthy Rally For Urban Meyer

Ohio State Fans Hold Cringeworthy Rally For Urban Meyer

Courtney Smith's attorney, Julia Leveridge, released a statement on Tuesday saying her client is a domestic violence victim and that she made "concerted efforts to press charges of domestic violence against her ex-husband". "Urban Meyer is on the hot seat and can be wrongfully fired from Ohio State", the petition states, adding, "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!"

In the wake of an Ohio State investigation into Urban Meyers possible knowledge of domestic abuse allegations against a former assistant, during which the decorated coach has been placed on paid administrative leave, a number of Buckeyes fans are showing support for the coach.

Ohio State trustees announced last week that a special "independent board working group" would direct the Meyer investigation, which is expected to last about two weeks. An Ohio State spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Questions of Meyer's handling of the situation were raised after last month's Big Ten media day, when the three-time national champion told reporters he was only aware of allegations from 2009, when Zach Smith served as a graduate assistant under Meyer at the University of Florida.

It's not yet known if " Fahrenheit 11/9 " will receive an Irish theatrical release. Trump won the presidency by just 77,000 combined votes from those three states.

In several recent interviews, Zach Smith has denied abusing Courtney.

The Buckeyes open the season September 1 against Oregon State. According to Meyer, he "followed proper reporting protocols and procedures" after learning of alleged abuse by the Buckeyes former wide receivers coach. "While The Ohio State University has never contacted Ms. Smith to discuss these allegations, she will fully cooperate with the university's current investigation".

Outside the gates of Ohio Stadium, more than 100 fans chanted Meyer's name and sang the OSU fight song during a rally that lasted about 20 minutes.

According to the new report, Smith, who was sacked earlier this summer, received a much-smaller raise following the 2015 season than he did in other years.
