OSU Forms Independent Committee To Investigate Domestic Violence Allegations. What It Could Mean …

Ohio State announced the formation of an independent committee to investigate the allegations that Urban Meyer knew about a domestic violence occurring by his former assistant Zach Smith.

That’s the right move in this case, but I think you can take a few things out of that announcement that may not be evident on the surface. Like everyone else, there’s just not a lot of information we have right now from Meyer’s side, and I am not privy to anything else that others connected to the program are.

However, we are here to give our opinion, so that’s what we’ll do.

I believe the formation of an independent committee might at least tell us one thing. This isn’t an open and shut case. Had Meyer simply agreed behind the scenes that he knew and didn’t alert anyone, I truly believe this thing would have been over more swiftly. Getting a committee together for a thorough investigation means there are additional things to look into.

It also means we won’t find the end of the rope on this ordeal as quickly as everyone is hoping for. It’ll be a thorough investigation undertaken the right way, with in-depth interviews and evidence acquired, discussed and dealt with.

I was leaning towards Meyer losing his job over this whole thing, but now I am beginning to pull that back somewhat and believe that there’s more to this story than we know. Yeah, there always is, but it’s beginning to look like there’s a lot more we just don’t have information on.

So stay with me here, and again this is just opinion, but I don’t believe too much of a stretch. There’s really only three scenarios I believe are in play here. We’ll go through each of them.
