Urban Meyer Digs The Hole A Little Deeper Every Time He Talks

Urban Meyer Digs The Hole A Little Deeper Every Time He Talks

Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer is back with the program after a three-game suspension from the team for mishandling domestic violence accusations against former assistant coach Zach Smith. To mark the occasion, he is once again trying to set the record straight about Smitha€™s domestic violence and why his, Meyera€™s, own past statements on the situation sounded so much like lies. In an interview with ESPN, a Twitter statement, and aA rambling press conference, Urban Meyer made it excruciatingly clear that he is still missing the point.

In aA sitdown with ESPNa€™s Tom RinaldiA on Saturday, Meyer said he was speaking now because he wants the a€œtruth to be out there.a€ Then he promptly tried to obscure the truth about the issue at the heart of the matter: what he knew about the abuse allegations and when. If youa€™ll recall, Meyer first said at Big Ten media day in August that he knew nothing about abuse allegations against Smith in 2015. Then a week later,A he changed his mindA and said heA didA actually know about it and followed proper reporting protocol, though he declined to say what that was. In his ESPN interview this weekend, he said:

a€œI think therea€™s probably a perception that I did try to mislead people, that I tried to not be forthright about everything I knew about Zach Smith, Courtney Smith situation, which was not the case at all.a€

Which sounds very much likeA I didna€™t know I was lying when I lied,A whatever that means.
