Re: 2018 Baseball Season

I had the Yankees vs White Sox game on in the background last night, but I shut it off after a few innings. Man, the White Sox are bad. It seemed like everyone they sent to the plate was batting .230. And the pitching staff's combined ERA is pushing 5.0. Other than Jose Abreu, who is not great but p...

Re: College Sports Scandals

Meyer is saying he reported an incident from 2015. Smith was fired like 6 weeks ago, and only after a public court hearing. So, OSU has a potential PR disaster on their hands, even if everyone met their legal thresholds. That's the problem for them. Meyer is kinda/sorta throwing someone (else) unde...

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

They're 6-6 vs the Yankees. So there's that, bless their hearts.

Re: College Sports Scandals

He kept Smith on until the story started to become public, then he fired him. Besides the story getting out, what changed to justify firing if it wasn't before? That's my take as well. Meyer seemed content to let this slide until it became public, then he dropped a house on Smith. In fairness to Me...

Re: College Sports Scandals

I didn't think that was even alleged, though.

I don't believe so. My comments were in response to lama's post about the three things OSU should be investigating. That's why I cut & paste lama's words into my post.

Mrs. psu_dad: Stop being snarky.
Me: He started it.

Re: College Sports Scandals

I saw the entire interview. No reasonable person could watch it and conclude that Urban Meyer and Courtney Smith spoke to each other regarding the 2015 incident.

Re: College Sports Scandals

He didn't say that until AFTER the Shelley Smith interview.

My point was that I'm willing to accept that Mayer didn't try to influence Smith in 2015. There's no way she doesn't mention that in her interview, were that the case.

EDIT: That should be Courtney Smith.

Re: College Sports Scandals

I don't know why, but this reminds me of a guy I used to work with (now retired) who was born in Columbus, OH ... grew up there in the 50s and 60s ... went to OSU to get a degree and a graduate degree ... and probably knew less about OSU football than anyone on the planet. Couldn't give two poops ab...

Re: College Sports Scandals

I suspect that if he's fired, it will probably just continue to be be a national story for days/weeks. Once a prominent public figure is brought down, there's not much point in dancing over the dead body. And the righteous indignation angle is played out at that point. If he's NOT fired, it will pro...

Re: College Sports Scandals

And then they tell each other, which means they all knew, and keep Zack Smith on the staff anyway. In fairness, they didn't know what happened, They weren't there. They knew of an allegation. That's not the same thing. I'm not crazy about the idea that an accusation should automatically result in &...
