Wouldn't it have been easier if he just said "we think he can help us win some games"?

Definitely easier and perhaps more genuine. 

I do tend to think Helton is an upright guy, but I will be watching this one very closely.  Kid will be on a short leash.

here's the story i read last week when it was being speculated that we would sign him...

https://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2016/09/12/local-college-football-player-suspended-for-5-years-for-punching-referee/

From Helton:

"He's a young man from Mt. SAC that we learned about in spring recruiting. We knew his history with an in-game incident that he had to pay penance for. We vetted for three months this individual, talking with administrators at Mt. SAC, coaches, counselors and also had a chance to sit down with his family over the summer," said Helton. "What we learned from the administrators, coaches and counselors is that we were dealing with a tremendous young man, a young man that is a tremendous student, great person and a guy that we had no question would be a great member of our Trojan family.....we listed the expectations that we expect for Bernard and we understand that he knows those expectations and he will do a great job here as a Trojan. We are very excited."

I see... there is even controversy regarding whether or not he was arrested...  funny stuff going on indeed.

What really surprises me though is that in that post I was trying give Urban Meyer the benefit of the doubt and you told me to get my facts straight.  Funny Stuff all around.

BTW Scott, are you surprised Helton has signed this kid and given him a second chance?


I am very surprised. While he was fully acquitted of punching the ref --it was called obviously accidental-- I saw a couple of shots of this kids twitter feed and it was not something that I was comfortable with.  Helton obviously has access to more info than I do though.

Check your facts.
Smith was never arrested.

I will recheck.  I posted this directly after reading an article stating that he was

ESPN (and others) saying Urban is not the victim, Courtney Smith is the victim and this should be about her.  What were the frickin police doing for the last three years? 

Did Urban Meyer know something first hand that the police were not already made aware of directly from Courtney? They arrested the guy, so I'm pretty sure they already knew about it.  They are required to do investigations right?    And if Smith had been fired while she was still living in the house would that have helped her or made it worse?

I think the longer this goes on without any significant public backlash, the more likely he will be reinstated.  There was a lot of press out of the gate, but It feels like it's way back on page 9 already

Since no one here is.e an positing it as a possibility, I will: What if Meyer's statement is true: he reported the incident when it happened, but when asked about the incident at media day, lied?
Actually Friday night he admitted lying to the media AND reporting the 2015 incident when he learned about it.

I thought so.  This sounds to me like the legal team had time to strategize and came up with this story as a way to keep him.  But if they just made this up, someone will blab and then there will be a number of people going down.

Do you fire him for that, or just suspend him for, say, the first two games of the year? Is lying to the press rideable for a CFB coach?

If it's just not knowing how to answer a question he wasn't prepared to answer, then I doubt he would be fired for that.

Check out the Project Veritas video or google Urbs Valentine's Day Massacre and see if you can't make the reasoned conclusion that he SHOULD be fired.

What should he be fired for based on his contract?

I can't follow all the latest.  When he admitted knowing a couple of days ago, did he also claim that he "had" reported it to his superiors as required by Title IX

His AD and the Trojan AD had/have the same scheduling opportunities as the SEC schools that he is aiming his shitball at.

Ok, so your just saying they need to start scheduling cupcakes.    Ok that's one way to look at it.   The other is to tell the SEC to grow some balls and start playing a big boy schedule.  And to keep saying it over and over again until someone starts listening.

Shelly is going to take the bullet for her husband as she is a school employee also.  She will be fired or resign and claim she never told Urban.   He will be reinstated so he can get back to winning OSU some championships

I found a way to go to my old login, go over and click on the login tab. It will take you to a different screen. Your old name and password will work on that screen.

This did not work yesterday. But did today
