The Controversy

The news broke on Wednesday afternoon by Brett McMurphy and it is not pretty. During an investigation, McMurphy obtained text messages from a domestic abuse victim. Those text messages confirmed that head coach Urban Meyer knew about domestic allegations against a member of his coaching staff. Meyer said last week during Big Ten media days that he had no knowledge of the two incidents that happened in 2015. Seemingly caught in a lie, this is a big problem for Meyer and the Buckeyes. With this news splashed all over sports headlines, will Urban Meyer be fired? Many believe that something has to happen.
