Horribly Ironic Urban Meyer T-Shirt Sell Out Mere Hours After Getting Suspended

Ohio State placed head football coach Urban Meyer on administration leave Wednesday while it investigates claims that he was aware of domestic abuse carried out by one of his assistants but didn't take action.

Urban Meyer's tenure as Bob Evans' "head breakfast coach" lasted just three days as the New Albany-based chain restaurant pulled the Ohio State Buckeyes coach from its website on Thursday.

At the time of Smith's firing, Urban Meyer said he never knew about the domestic violence, and that if he had he would have fired Smith a long time ago.

While speaking with reporters at training camp, Apple described Meyer's administrative leave and the investigation as "unfortunate".

"There was nothing, I don't know who creates a story like that", Meyer said. Zach Smith's ex-wife accuses him of abusing her for years, most recently in 2015.

Peirce's dissent is interesting, as it shows how the SEC might be swayed to change its decision on cases like this in the future. Since, it is expected that ETF will be a tool that will attract more institutional investors into the Bitcoin market.

The day after Smith was sacked, Meyer was asked about the allegations during the Big Ten Conference Football Media Day.

Zach Smith was finally dismissed by Meyer on July 23 after an OH court granted a domestic violence protective order to Courtney Smith against her former husband. But Meyer said he knew nothing of the 2015 abuse allegations until the day he let Smith go.

There are, however, a sufficient number of facts that show Meyer is in real danger of losing his job, and the dismissals might not stop there.

Smith was sacked July 23 after reports surfaced that his ex-wife filed an order of protection against him. If we're to believe what Urban Meyer said last week, his wife kept quiet about the whole affair, not even bothering to mention at the dinner table, "Hey, you've got an assistant coach who might have a problem". "That was one rule I had that there was no negotiating on". Meyer's wife, Shelley, was made aware of the allegations, and said she would speak to her husband, Courtney Smith told the network. The Smiths separated in June 2015 and divorced in 2016. A hearing has been scheduled for Friday. He was also asked about the 2015 incident alleged by Courtney Smith. That is about all I can say right now. First I heard about that was last night.
