Why is Urban Meyer Retiring
It has been pretty well documented on our College Football Today news feed on why Urban Meyer is retiring and our new UW Rose Bowl Husky t-shirt signifies somewhat on how the nation feels about the 2019 Rose Bowl.
"Urban Meyer, who returned Ohio State’s football program to national prominence but who was suspended earlier this year after an investigation revealed he had protected a longtime assistant with a history of domestic abuse, will retire after seven seasons, the university announced Tuesday. Meyer cited health problems as the primary reason." - New York Times - Marc Tracy and Victor Mather
Ohio State Football's hype video this week features their "Brotherhood" and how you should be silent about whatever your brothers are doing.

Below you will find news clippings of College Football Today articles that will help explain more on why Urban Meyer is retiring and consistently has "health issues" emerge when scandals emerge at his College Football programs.
August 2nd,2018 - directly after Brett McMurphy's article exposing more Urban Meyer Cover ups. Having once have been recruited by Coach Urban Meyer back in 2005, I knew Coach as an up-and-coming brilliant football mind and a very driven individual. He had just won the Fiesta Bowl at Utah and was the National Coach of the Year by Sporting News in all of collegiate football.
"Urban Meyer is Urban Liar, he is the most disingenuous coach I have ever covered" Mike Bianchi - Orlando Sentinel
Zack Smith allegedly choked his wife in front of his two children, while his daughter was clinging to his wife's leg. Coach Meyer knew about these actions and ongoing domestic abuse, as well as some Ohio State coaches wives according to Brett McMurphy who was responsible for the initial release of the report that got Urban Meyer put on a leave of absence. The evidence is dark, damning and will not be tolerated in College Football Today. As coaches, players and mentors we must lead by example and stop making excuses for why "these kids are so bad". Your old and washed up mentality leads to children growing up without parents and those little boys reenacting your despicable actions (Zack Smith and Urban Meyer).
Coach Urban Meyer
Coach Urban Meyer has a huge disapproval rate across the United States among Women and also men who stand against domestic violence, above winning at all costs. This has developed a Ohio State against the world mentality and phrase recently used by Buckeyes nation.

Urban Meyer Letter
Reading Urban Meyer's letter, I am reminded of the countless public apology letters about things as small as an insensitive comment made by a celebrity to a large corporation addressing a major blunder in their business practices. Sometimes public apologies can do more harm than good if the apologist seems insincere in taking responsibility for their words or actions. A good and properly executed public apology will make the person or entity more popular than before as their full and genuine admittance of guilt and even a pro-active *action* to prevent or fix the issue or situation humanizes and provides them with some much needed good will. In Coach Meyer’s case, his attempt to apologize for some “alternative facts” he provided on the subject on Big 10 Media Days (video below) clarified his own role in the scandal, but in doing so diffused responsibility from himself to whatever “proper channels” he allegedly reported the allegations to.
Urban Meyer Scandal
In my previous article on the Urban Meyer scandal, I spoke briefly about the art of the public apology. Watching Meyer's formal apology reminded me a bit of that South Park episode where they made fun of BP CEO Tony Hayward's phony and insincere apology for their Gulf Coast Oil Spill. I realize there are legal ramifications of apologizing to Courtney Smith directly, but Meyer failed to even recognize her a victim and even went so far as to implicate himself as a victim. It's sad when the world is looking to you to say something sincere and from the heart, but all you can do is ambivalently read off a pre-written statement and deny culpability for your actions. The truth of the matter is that for years Courtney Smith and her children suffered greatly from abuse, harassment, and violent threats by a man who remained in a power position. Not only did Meyer fail to acknowledge Courtney Smith as a victim of domestic violence, but he redirected the question to insinuate that the upheaval and consequences suffered by him and the OSU administration was the real abuse. Watching Meyer going on about how deeply sorry he is to Buckeye Nation for putting them through this ordeal, it is clear this man doesn't believe he did anything wrong. He's just sorry everyone found out.
