Is winning everything? Well, to the Ohio State faithful, it is. The Ohio State Buckeyes decided to suspend their head coach Urban Myer for only 3 non-conference games for this upcoming seasons.
Urban Myer has been under investigation as to how much information did he know about the domestic violence issues that one of his assistant coaches was displaying. Also there were speculation that Urban Myer lied to the media about his knowledge of the incidents.

Although he was guilty, he was able to get away with just a slap on the wrist. But what does this say about the state of college football? Is winning everything? Coaches can mess up and get off on weak suspensions while the players who are kids no-less are held to a higher standard of ethics. From transfer rules to domestic violence punishments, players are held accountable because the NCAA and the Universities can dictate their futures while coaches can leave a University when ever he feels like it or lie and get another chance.
And this goes to my biggest beef with OSU’s summary report given to media prior to press conference. It makes it sound like Meyer is suspended for failing to follow protocol.
That’s BS. He was suspended for keeping Zach Smith on staff for too long. End of story.

Why is that? The call for College sports reform needs to be made.
