The whole college football world is waiting and watching with abated breath for when a decision will come down on the status of embattled head coach Urban Meyer.

We now have a little better timing of when that might occur with another milestone being reported by Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports. According to Thamel, the meeting between the Ohio State Board of Trustees and OSU President Michael Drake is supposed to take place on Wednesday of this week at 9AM.

Following Thamel’s report, Ohio State confirmed the meeting via a release as follows:

The Ohio State University Board of Trustees will meet at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 22, to discuss personnel matters related to the investigation involving Urban Meyer. The meeting will be held at Longaberger Alumni House, 2200 Olentangy River Road. In keeping with Ohio open meetings law, the meeting will be convened in public session before entering executive session for the entirety of the personnel matters discussion.

The investigative team will verbally share its findings to the board today in an informational briefing. The board will not deliberate or discuss any public business or make any decisions today based on the information presented during the session. Today’s briefing is to ensure that board members are adequately prepared to discuss this matter at Wednesday’s meeting.

The investigation itself ended on Sunday meaning the latest revelations reported by Brett McMurphy of Stadium Sports likely had little bearing on what the committee had already uncovered.

After the executive session, it’ll be up to President Drake to pour over what he and the Board of Trustees have looked at and discussed in order render a final verdict on what happens to Urban Meyer. That could happen the same day, or it could go on for any amount of time Drake feels is necessary to make the best decision for Ohio State.

The clock continues to click, but it’s now getting closer and closer to striking midnight.

Stay tuned and we’ll continue to provide updates as they are made available.
