A surprising number of people in a recent Twitter poll of mine don’t think Urban Meyer should be fired.
Meyer and the entire Ohio State football program have been engulfed in scandal after assistant coach Zach Smith was fired after allegations of domestic violence became public. Meyer denied any knowledge of the alleged incidents in 2015, but a report from Brett McMurphy made it appear that OSU’s head coach was aware. He’s since been placed on paid administrative leave.

Naturally, I wanted to see what other people were thinking. I asked on Twitter, “Should Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer be fired if it’s proven he knew of domestic violence allegations against assistant coach, and chose to do nothing?”
I was a bit surprised when only 65 percent of people said he should be fired. That leaves a lot of people still supporting a man who would have allegedly participated in a coverup.

Look, it’s one thing to say somebody shouldn’t be fired if there are a lot of unknowns. That’s not what I asked in the poll above. I asked if he should fired if it’s proven he participated in the coverup of domestic violence allegations. The only correct answer is yes, Urban Meyer would have to be fired.
Sometimes, football fans get a bit of clouded judgment. You simply can’t employ people who turn a blind eye to domestic violence. It’s completely unacceptable. Let us know what you think in the comments. I have a feeling most of you will agree with me.
