Scandal News Watch Consolidated Thread for Monday 8/20/18

Submitted by jamesjosephharbaugh on August 20th, 2018 at 10:35 AM

Since more rumors will inevitably start surfacing as we approach decision time, and there's potential for actual news to occur, here's a consolidated thread to post anything about the situation in Ohio, or Maryland, or students selling shoes, or whatever, hopefully to keep from cluttering up the board with every new screencap of twitter or bucknuts.

I got this dude trying to feed me inside info- so far he tells me that Billy likes to drink soda and Miss Lippy's car is green. 

Will report back with confirmations.

McMurphy clarifies his recent story and adds a bit of detail:

“The main reason I reported it is because Zach Smith was an employee at Ohio State having sex with a subordinate in the football office. He (took pictures) on a phone he conducts university business on. He was having all the (sex toys) items delivered, not to his personal home, but his place of employment.

"This goes toward the lack of credibility this guy has when you factor in (the other stuff). The woman he had sex with was reassigned to another department in the summer of 2015. She was reassigned after what went on, but he remained employed.”

So yeah, it seems OSU was aware of this.  

Also: is it legitimate under Title IX to reassign her but leave him untouched?

I'll be "that guy".  I get the urge to consolidate, but I honestly can't stand these.  I don't want to wade through a long thread to find something newsworthy (because most of what will be posted here won't be).

Right there with you. Been wrangling multiple cats into a carrier for a vet appointment, now waiting on my dentist, and later the mandatory parent meeting for volleyball season, where they remind us how to behave. But only three coffees deep so far, and still reeling from news of Bill's premature demise.

Why did you waste space with this post? At a minimum you should have set up a separate thread for the different scandals you anticipate. Then posters could ignore the relevant post anyway.

I'm hearing credible reports that, at the very least, Urban Meyer's dog is in the clear.  Everyone seems to agree that he is a very good boy and that, while he thinks he's people, he does not understand human language well enough to be held accountable here.  He did pee in a closet in March of 2016, but the Meyers had failed to let him outside for long enough that this was inevitable.
