UFM just reeks of sleeze ball. He's drug his stank in from Florida. That inept 1-2 punch of Gene and Urban just puts a pall over the B1G and start dragging our reputations into SEC levels. If OSU had class, Urban is gone with Smith. If they did nothing wrong, then exonerate them. But a 3 game suspension tells us they did something wrong, but not wrong enough. Way to set a shining example OSU.

I was told by someone following the situation that he was waiting to see how OSU handled the situation and if they did the right thing.  If not, he had something else.

When you look at a guy like Zak Smith and all the shenanigans at Florida, it's hard not to imagine Urban doesn't have a walk-in closet full of skeletons.  The guy has no soul.

The team will be pissed off because their coach isn't there because he was suspended by his employer for embarrassing the University? The guys will play harder because they feel badly for their beleaguered coach whose employer publicly stated he did not uphold the school's "values"?

That makes a lot of sense. I don't know why more coaches don't get suspended for ethics violations as a way of motivating their team.

How can you come on a public, rival forum, and basically just thumb your nose about the whole thing? Oh, because you fucks have no shame. How stupid of me. 

I say this with all sincerity; in no way would our fanbase tolerate this kind of shit. Ever.

I also say this with sincerity; go fuck yourself. 

How do you not feel like it's all tainted at this point? Oh yeah, it's the no shame thing. Sorry, I've been taking some medication that makes my memory pretty spotty, and clouds my judgement. 

It feels good to have morals, y'all should try it sometime.

The first 3 games won't be a challenge.  OSU can get by with talent.  Meyer will be back for the important games.

It's a net win for OSU because it got an upgrade on a poor performing Wide Receiver Coach.
