Nearly 30,000 Ohio State Fans Sign Petition to Preemptively 'Save' Urban Meyer's Job

Nearly 30,000 Ohio State Fans Sign Petition to Preemptively 'Save' Urban Meyer's Job

Ohio State head football coach Urban Meyer is currently on administrative leave until the conclusion of an ongoing investigation that was initiated after it was discovered that he knew of spousal assault accusations against now former assistant coach Zach Smith.

Meyer is 73-8 in his seven seasons in Columbus, and his teams have finished in the top six of the AP poll in six of his seven seasons as the Buckeyes' head man.

In related news, Buckeyes fans are rallying around Meyer to get out in front of Meyer's potential firing. As of early Monday afternoon, a Change.org petition to prevent the National Championship winning coach from being canned had collected over 28,000 virtual signatures. This petition (which, let's be honest, doesn't take much effort to add your name to) comes in addition to a demonstration that will take place outside the team's football stadium.

Whether that rally receives a great turn-out, or is one of those sad events with an attendance that you can count on hand, remains to be seen, but comments made by the event's organizer appear to be setting a low bar.
