Rumors have been swirling all day that he might be out and the school has officially put him on administrative leave. Very good chance he will be fired which would be a shocking end to his highly successful stint at Ohio State.

Definitely would not consider it shocking nowadays with all the other scandals that have occurred.  Meyer does not have a particularly pristine reputation.

Penn State. Michigan State. Now Ohio State.

What is up with these Big Ten schools?

Ryan Day.  Former BC assistant coach.  Nice to see him get a shot as an interim head coach.

Baylor, FSU, Florida (this all started in Florida with the same people), NE (Lawrence Phillips), etc.

I think its pretty clearly a CFB thing. More broadly I think this is a societal thing given what various corporations, churchs, and other organizations are having been revealed to have allowed.

I hope they have the guts to follow through and fire him if they cannot find that the reporting is false.

Baylor.  Colorado.  Miami (the Shapiro scandal).  Louisville (basketball). 

Not to mention all the pay scandals that constantly plague the top programs.

Haha...you Big Ten guys so quick to rush to defend your league.  Relax, I was simply pointing out some of the more prominent scandals of the past few years have arisen from Big Ten schools.

I'm well aware that its well above the Big Ten and we have seen plenty of scandals from other conferences.  Clearly, there is a systematic problem when it comes to situations like this in college sports where a blind eye is turned in the name of sports.

I'm still a Big 8 guy.  :(

Still not happy with how it all shook out.

The big 8 was awesome.  It seemed more fun with Colo Neb and Miss before the switch.

Ha...I feel you.  BC was Big East when I was there.  An independent when I was a kid & is ACC now. 

All over the board.  :P

Rumors of a possible replacement include Matt Campbell, Bob Stoops, and Bo Pelini.  If they go with Pelini they might as well throw away the next few seasons.  I'd love to see Stoops take over.  Not sold that Campbell is ready for that type of job, but at least I'd understand the idea of going for a young up and comer.
