OSU Fans rally at Ohio Stadium for Urban Meyer

I SUPPORT: "URBAN MEYER & THE BUCKS O-H-I-O" and one that stated, "INNOCENT 'TIL PROVEN GUILTY ESPN GUILTY OF ABUSE!" with "PROVEN" underlined.

In the wake of an Ohio State investigation into Urban Meyer's possible knowledge of domestic abuse allegations against a former assistant, during which the decorated coach has been placed on paid administrative leave, a number of Buckeyes fans are showing support for the coach.

"Ohio State is committed to a thorough and complete investigation", Davidson, 90, said in a statement. Decisions about any action resulting from it will be made by Ohio State President Michael Drake. Mary Jo White, a former chair of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, will lead the investigative team.

Smith was sacked in July after his ex-wife obtained a protective order against him in court, and after veteran college sports reporter Brett McMurphy published reports to Facebook on the 2015 incidents, in addition to one from 2009 in which Smith was arrested for assaulting her while she was pregnant. Several of her anecdotes allege that a few of Meyer's assistant coaches, as well as his wife, Shelley, knew about Zach Smith's history of domestic abuse.

I'm not thinking about it, I'm very relaxed about it. "There is not a Willian problem". "We didn't talk about this [Hazard's future]", Sarri told reporters.

"When we're talking about arrogance, that seems to go hand in hand with Urban Meyer", Finebaum said on "First Take" last week. Meyer later said he had known about the incidents and had reported them to the proper authorities.

Smith wasn't fired until last month, while Meyer said during Big Ten Media day he only knew of a 2007 incident and nothing in 2015. They chanted his name, they pushed their signs into the sky, and they passionately defended the head coach who has made Ohio State one of the top three college football powerhouses in the country.

Smith was part of Meyer's staff at Florida from 2005-09 and at Ohio State from 2012-17.
