The son of former Penn State coach Joe Paterno wrote in a blog post Wedneday that Ohio State needed to be pragmatic in its investigation into Meyer's actions (or possible lack thereof) regarding domestic abuse allegations against former wide receivers coach Zach Smith.

Yes: the university says it has placed its head football coach on "paid administrative leave," and surely there are crucial bureaucratic differences between we're putting you on leave and we're suspending you from work, but let's not argue the impact.

"It's a insane, unfortunate situation", Apple said after training camp practice on Thursday. "I eagerly look forward to the resolution of this matter", he said in a statement.

Co-offensive coordinator Ryan Day has been named acting head coach.

Courtney Smith told Stadium that she told Shelley Meyer in 2015 that Zach Smith had assaulted her. Courtney Smith provided text messages to former ESPN reporter Brett McMurphy between her and Shelley Meyer about Zach Smith's behavior, and threatening text messages she said were sent to her by Zach Smith. Zach Smith denied the allegation in a statement released by his lawyer. Courtney Smith said all the wives on staff were aware of her situation.

There are, however, a sufficient number of facts that show Meyer is in real danger of losing his job, and the dismissals might not stop there.

Separately, a court hearing for Zach Smith was postponed Thursday on a domestic protection order sought by his ex-wife.

Jay Paterno has weighed in regarding the Urban Meyer situation at Ohio State. As you got deeper and deeper into the story it got progressively worse, and since then I haven't seen any indication that from that school or from anyone else that he is.

Ohio State is also conducting an investigation, undoubtedly to find out if Meyer knew of the allegations against Zach Smith. I told people to go find out for me.

She continued, "When somebody is crying out for help, I believe, the coach along with the coach's wife have a duty. I'm not sure where that comes up".

Meyer told reporters at Big Ten media days on July 24 that he knew nothing about the allegations.
