|Smith and Meyer face the media|
All things considered, the sanctions are fair and reasonable. Rabid Buck-Nut fanatics will disagree, but Urban should consider himself very lucky. OSU could have made an example of him. He could easily have been fired. He bungled this entire episode, including yesterday's press conference. He apologized to the Buckeye faithful without apologizing to or mentioning Courtney Smith, the abused woman. When asked about her, all he could say was, "I'm sorry we're in this situation." Pretty weak.
Even with his sparkling W-L record, like Gloria Gaynor, at first he was afraid, he was petrified. But the W's carry a lot of weight and now Urban knows he will survive. And the AD will survive, and so will the football team and the university.
Now, about that Dr. Richard Strauss scandal . . .
