MEYER SUSPENDED 3 GAMES
Buckeye Nation rejoices, while the rest of the country is left scratching their heads. If you're asking yourself: "How does a coach in Jim McElwain get fired for blurting out he got death threats, when he didn't...yet, Urban Meyer gets a slap on the wrist for covering up years and years of domestic violence perpetrated by one of his staff members?".. Especially in today's climate of no-tolerance towards abuse against women.
Well, it's a great question. Here's the answer: Because Urban Meyer wins. Face it, Meyer wasn't suspended 3 games by Ohio State because the punishment fits the crime, he's suspended 3 games, and only 3 games, because he's a great coach who wins a lot of games.
Message sent loud and clear to the rest of the country, whether you're a college football coach or an accountant -- If you're great at your job, you get a hall pass for being a sleazeball.
Poll question today: What will be Urban Meyer's lasting legacy, come the end of his career?
