Brett McMurphy Talks Ohio State Press Conference Result

Brett McMurphy joined Doug Gottlieb and Jason Smith to react to the Ohio State Presser that resulted in a 3 game suspension for Urban Meyer due to negligence when it came to handling former assistant coach, Zach Smith's allegations of domestic abuse. McMurphy wonders why Urban Meyer wasn't fired because several items in the investigations would have been considered fireable offenses. McMurphy shares this paragraph from the report (read the whole thing here):

In the course of our review, as the factual discussion in this summary reflects, we identified a pattern of troubling behavior by Zach Smith: promiscuous and embarrassing sexual behavior, drug abuse, truancy, dishonesty, financial irresponsibility, a possible NCAA violation, and a lengthy police investigation into allegations of criminal domestic violence and cybercrimes. Repeatedly, Zach Smith’s conduct was met with reprimands and warnings by Coach Meyer, but never a written report, never an investigation and no disciplinary action until July 23, 2018. While we do not doubt that Coach Meyer respects women and is dedicated to fostering an environment of respect for women in his program, his apparent blind spot for Zach Smith seems to have impaired his judgment and his management of the behavior of at least one of his assistants.

Doug Gottlieb asked why Meyer wouldn't report this. McMurphy simply said: 

"He knows where the bodies are buried."
