As Urban Meyer situation unfolds, here’s what Will Muschamp told his staff

But this bad story is far from over.

Bob Evans Restaurants put its partnership with Urban Meyer on hold Thursday as Ohio State continues to investigate what its football coach knew about allegations of domestic abuse against a former assistant coach.

Meyer said he and athletic director Gene Smith agree that being on leave during the inquiry was best for the investigation and the team.

Those are just some of the facts. When asked about the 2015 allegations at Big Ten Media Days last week, Meyer denied any knowledge of the incidents.

"Shelley said she was going to have to tell Urban", Courtney Smith said in an interview with Stadium.

Although there are shades of gray in every situation with such hard subject matter, this much seems clear: Either Meyer was lying last week when he denied his knowledge of the allegations against Smith, or he's created a culture around his program where team employees and even his own wife are unwilling to share such important information with him. Meyer didn't "know what to think", Lindsey Voltolini said.

Officials Say They Tried To Warn Trump Admin About Family Separation Fallout
The request for the investigation elevates yet another issue to the Trump administration's list of immigration headaches. Trump said the two leaders agree that "border security is national security - they are one in the same".

That's yet another detail that makes it hard to believe that Meyer wasn't aware that one of his assistants was, at best, a threat to his ex-wife's well-being, and, at worst, an abusive monster.

It's a money play, they say. "I told Shelley, I sent her some pictures (of her injuries), I spoke to her on the phone".

If you're in this group, I encourage you to speak with someone who has been a victim of domestic violence.

There is no "right time" to tell your story. Courtney Smith claims her ex-husband shoved her against a wall with his hands around her neck. "I eagerly look forward to the resolution of this matter", he said in a statement.

The questions confronting Meyer involve whether he vouched too strongly for a coach he's considered family.

Plenty of you - many of whom are OSU fans - disagree. Furthermore, it said "we are suspending the current partnership with urban Meyer and removing all related content pending the results of the official Ohio State University investigation".
