This is why Spurrier says he is "hoping and praying" Urban Meyer did not lie in an attempt to cover up allegations of domestic violence against recently fired Ohio State assistant coach Zach Smith.

Yes: the university says it has placed its head football coach on "paid administrative leave," and surely there are crucial bureaucratic differences between we're putting you on leave and we're suspending you from work, but let's not argue the impact.

"Shelley said she was going to have to tell Urban", Courtney told McMurphy.

The group also will "be available to provide consultation and advice and assist with communication to the full board on the matter", the university said in a statement. Zach Smith denied the allegation in a statement released by his lawyer.

Yet here we are, the day after McMurphy reported a story so horrifying it could bring down one of the best coaches in college football history, and some fanatics are blaming the victim. The charge was dropped because of insufficient evidence.

In a July 23 Facebook post, college football reporter Brett McMurphy detailed a series of domestic violence allegations against Smith dating back to 2009 and 2015.

That figure makes him not only the highest-paid state employee in OH, but the highest-paid public-school football coach in the United States. The 34-year-old Zach Smith is the grandson of Meyer's mentor and former Ohio State coach Earle Bruce.
