In reply to: An Observer 's message, "Re: The Three Broad Scenarios Possible For Urban Meyer" on 18:53:01 08/07/18 Tue

The lawyer for accused wife-beater Zach Smith said that, now approximately one week into Ohio State's investigation of what happened, nobody from the school has contacted him or his client.

It really does appear that Ohio State has already decided what it wants to do, either terminate Meyer or reinstate him, and is now simply going through some motions for two weeks to support that predetermined outcome.

If Ohio State were actually on a fact-finding mission, it's very hard to see that the school would not contact Zach or Courtney Smith in the course of that mission.

What's interesting is that various commentators have different opinions on which option Ohio State has already chosen. I can see it going either way but, at the margin, the fact that neither of the Smiths has been interviewed says to me that Meyer will be reinstated.

News reports indicate that OSU will be interviewing him next week.

Fascinating, right? The investigators will interview Zach Smith days before their self-imposed two-week deadline. What does that mean?

It feels like the investigators recognized that they would face some criticism once Zach Smith went public with the news that he had not been interviewed. So they decide to check off that box to forestall criticism. I wonder if they will feel compelled to talk to Courtney Smith as well; if not, this will continue to head down the road of sloppiness.

Who knows what Ohio State will do? Why do I get the feeling that, whatever decision they make regarding Meyer, it will be accompanied by only a brief justification.

Of course, if they terminate Meyer, no detailed justification will be needed; the reason will be self-explanatory to Meyer's critics and no explanation will placate his supporters.

But I still think it's more likely than not that they will reinstate Meyer. And if that decision is announced with just a brief explanation, then we will know for sure that the muffin had been put into the oven fully baked.

"What we're doing now is an investigation to try to find out exactly what happened, why, what the context was, etc.," Drake said. "I'm going to wait until I know those things before I make conclusions. I've been doing my best possible job to keep an open mind. As I said, stay tuned."
