Ohio State Football Fans Plan Rally In Support Of Urban Meyer

Ohio State looked the other way on Urban Meyer from the start

In this September, 2016 photo, Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer, right, and then-assistant coach Zach Smith, left, gesture from the sideline. "I support Urban Meyer & the Bucks".

Here is a full breakdown of how Ohio State plans to conduct the investigation into Meyer and his handling of the situation.

Meyer was put on paid leave last week amid questions about what he knew and did about accusations of abuse made against Smith, who was sacked July 24 after his ex-wife sought a restraining order against him.

An investigation into Meyer's knowledge will take no longer than two weeks. Fans have also started a petition to "save" Meyer that has around 25,000 signatures.

Smith was sacked in July after his ex-wife obtained a protective order against him in court, and after veteran college sports reporter Brett McMurphy published reports to Facebook on the 2015 incidents, in addition to one from 2009 in which Smith was arrested for assaulting her while she was pregnant.

"Others stand on the opposite side of the Meyer spectrum, such as ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum, who blasted Meyer after the recent reports".

The investigation into whether Meyer failed to report Smith's alleged behavior is being led by an independent group that includes former politicians and current board of trustees members at the school.

Smith denied assaulting his wife and said any physical injuries she might have suffered were the result of him defending himself. Bill Bradshaw, who was the athletic director when Smith was hired, is La Salle's athletic director.

"Urban Meyer is on the hot seat and can be wrongfully fired from Ohio State 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!"

Meyer released a statement Friday saying that he followed proper procedures when he found out about the 2015 abuse allegations.
