One question eats at me as I watch this whole what-did-Urban Meyer-know-and-what-did-or-didn’t-he-do-about-it scandal play out in Columbus, and admittedly it’s not the most important question that needs to be answered. The far more important, pressing questions are, in order…
- What did Meyer know about the alleged domestic violence incidents involving former assistant coach Zach Smith?
- What did Meyer’s wife know about the alleged domestic violence incidents involving Smith, and what about what she knew did she disclose or not disclose to her husband?
- What other Ohio State staffers knew about alleged domestic violence incidents involving Smith?
- Has Meyer coached his last game with the Buckeyes?
But as we wait for those answers – and I suspect we won’t have to wait long – and as some fans do the exhausting mental gymnastics required to justify someone doing nothing about what Smith is alleged to have done, I have one question that may never get answered…
Urban Meyer has put his job, his career and his legacy in jeopardy out of loyalty to Zach Smith????
