    Meyer released another statement today defending himself. So, counting the press conference, this is the 3rd statement he has released, which is odd. But his statement makes no sense. He says he wasnt suspended for knowing about or condoning the abuse, but was suspended for not taking sufficient management action. What the hell does this even mean? If he didnt know about the abuse, how was he supposed to take management action?

    Someone needs needs to advise him to just shut up. He got a slap on the wrist. The more convoluted statements he releases, the worse he looks IMO, and the more he keeps this in the media.

    well dg... had you followed the case (or dug even a little) you would know

    zach had multiple incidents regarding his poor performance at work that he should have been fired for that are completely unrelated to DV or the divorce drama. urban let it slide because he is a family friend, that is what he is referring to.

    this is including the strip club visit, in which urban had to change the football policy on visits during recruiting after it happened. another time when he pretended to go to a HS for recruiting but actually did not. he also had an affair with someone at OSU. and another time he was sent to rehab for an amphetamine addiction (adderall most likely) that he checked out early of.

    this is actually what the suspension was for because, as stated multiple times, he actually was in full compliance with the DV stuff and the university absolutely followed up on it throughout.

    also his statement wasnt really him saying anything at all. he just copy/pasted stuff from the actual findings of the investigation that everyone is ignoring and instead assuming he was suspended for covering up some DV stuff (he wasnt)

    That isnt remotely what OSU statement regarding his suspension said. You are going to pull a hamstring stretching that much. The strip club thing was 4 years ago. If Zach should have been fired over that, why didnt the university fire him? Plus, the statement specifically references media day, which were questiosn all about the abuse, and were not about the strip club thing.

    You can try to belittle me all you want, I couldnt possibly careless, but you are straight up being a fanboy. He is a football coach dude, not the second coming of Christ.

    Wrong. He said plenty, and also copy and pasted stuff. Regardless, why do it? If he is doing it on his own, then he needs to start talking to his agent before doing so. If his agent is telling him to put out these statements, then he needs a better agent.

    it doesnt say that stuff in what he quoted but if you read the actual investigation documents they did mention all of that stuff, and that is what they are referring to in the last paragraph of his statement.

    (this is a partial quote cuz his statement is an image and i cant copy/paste)

    he probably doesnt enjoy his name being drug through the mud saying he covered up DV when he clearly did not. seems like a normal reaction for any person.

    It clearly says "other" examples. But again, why didnt OSU step in and fire him then, if he committed so many fireable offenses?

    THe fact you think he clearly didnt know is straight up being a fanboy. If this were Harbaugh, I almost guarantee you're reaction to this whole thing would be a complete 180 to what it is now. There is plenty of evidence suggesting he knew about it, plenty.
