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.

Once again, why the Administrative leave? If it was a slip of the tongue then why not just 'immediately' produce the documentation saying it was reported, and then say it was a slip of the tongue, and be done with it?

No, something doesn't jive here.
To be seen as Doing Something in response to what appeared to be a major negative news story. "We take the allegations seriously! See what we have done!" PAID administrative leave, mind you.
Exactly. No matter what the decision on Meyer is it must have credibilityto sell to the public. So far the major news people have turned a Facebook post into another major broadside on the “ corruptness” of college football. But when you go looking for facts the evidence is harder to warrant firing the Coach.

Not really. Your point is simple minded and naive.

If you want a fact he lied when there was absolutely no need to lie. None.

An inquiring mind has to ask, why?

He's in one of the most pressure packed professions there are. And he wants us to believe he choked. Bullshit. He lied for a reason.

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

Big rally for the downtrodden millionaire, highest paid state employee, football coach in oHIo, last night.

I mean, a guy who has been so beaten down by the unfair application of societal rules and mores deserves the local populace's support!

CFB, the MOST CORRUPT sport in America.

Well, if you feel vindicated then that's the really important thing. I'm sure everyone here breathes a sigh of relief for that and will all sleep easy tonight.

I've got all the facts I need. Meyer lied for no good reason. Usually guys that do that are hiding something. We may never know what but...

Wouldn't trust em as far as I could throw em.

As I said, OSU is smart and doing the right thing. Stall till we can get all off these stories straight and get the proper paperwork typed up and back-dated.

Far be it for me to not prove you right. No need to thank me I have always been able to anticipate your needs. Besides you and James have always had easily jerked chains.


So rather thank you both for playing your parts most beautifully as expected.
