You know, if I were an Ohio State fan today, at the top of my wish list would be a fervent desire for anyone associated with the Smith debacle to keep their fricking mouths shut.
So much for that. Thanks, asshole.
Oh, wait… Gene Smith’s attorney wants to weigh in? Oh, okay… I mean, how much could it hurt?
… Despite digging deep, the investigators concluded Urban misspoke and did not lie to anyone.
So, why the sanction? Well, isn’t it obvious? The country was lathered into a frenzy based on erroneous information and a long delay and OSU needed to appease the lynch mob that had formed as soon as the unproven allegations were made.
As a result, two great men fell on the sword for a University they dearly love. And both men faced a room full of reporters and admitted they failed in their duties to better manage and react quicker to a troubled employee even though they had no idea about the information that has since come out about some of the things he may have been doing.
Those are the facts.
Two men who don’t deserve the public flogging but who agreed to take one for the team so this great University can move forward with all of its amazing athletic and academic initiatives.
I do not think great means what you think it means, brother. I’m guessing since you deleted the post after getting some feedback over it, you don’t, either.
