Today, in money well spent

Ohio State spent $1 million to verify that Urban Meyer lied about Zach Smith, a fact that most sentient beings had already figured out for considerably less money.

    Consider it money spent finding a suitable “Leadership and Character” lecturer.

    Heck, I think I’ll hang out my shingle and offer to do “investigations” of coaches. Seems quite lucrative, indeed.

    But Ohio State figured out he didn’t really intentionally lie. Relocating your money maker’s intentions and misdirecting your fans’ ire to the media are expensive undertakings.

  4. Man, I would have told them that for $500k. They overpaid.

    One million dollars. My goodness. Sometimes you get numb to the money that’s being thrown around in college athletics, but every once in a while something comes along that smacks you in the face and really makes you take notice.

    One million dollars of public/semi-public funds to “prove” something that Brett McMurphy literally did on a voluntary basis FOR FREE. You can’t just take his reporting at face value if you’re Ohio State, obviously, but you also don’t need to waste that kind of money on a sham investigation at the end of which you KNOW that you intend to take no action. Maybe the money in that budge line comes from boosters and not the state of Ohio or the US DOE. I don’t care. It’s a public institution. There are hungry kids languishing in sub-standard public schools in Columbus, Ohio and throughout that state. There are any number of ways a public institution could have spent one million dollars in a better and more worthy way than that. Mercy.

    • That McMurphy basically took down Urban for free, while unemployed, on his Facebook page bc Urban is a lying sack of shit is maybe THE boss move of 2018.

    To be fair, a lawyer charging $2,500 per hour and reading McMurphy’s articles verrrrrry slooooowly is going to add up.

    Am I the only one that sees Urbs getting the Asst Athletic Director position as a promotion?
    Instead of just infecting the football program, now his tentacles reach EVERY sports program in Columbus. How is this okay?
