Paul Finebaum Predicts What Will Happen With Urban Meyer

first_imgPaul Finebaum makes comments about roy Williams.Urban Meyer has been placed on administrative leave by Ohio State following the allegations that surfaced in a new report by college football insider Brett McMurphy. The head coach, per the new report, knew more about the domestic violence allegations against assistant coach Zach Smith than he led on.The entire college football world has been rocked by the news and, unsurprisingly, everyone is talking about it.ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum weighed in on Meyer’s future during an appearance on First Take this morning.“When we’re talking about arrogance, that seems to go hand in hand with Urban Meyer,” Finebaum said, per 247Sports. “I have always liked him personally. I respect his coaching ability, but you can’t look past the University of Florida. He left a disaster down there. Yeah, he won two national championships thanks to Tim Tebow and Percy Harvin and countless other players who have been in the NFL since then, but left his entire legacy in burned ashes.”Finebaum does not see Meyer keeping his job.“(My initial) reaction was Urban Meyer cannot survive this,” Finebaum said. “And that’s before I even finished the first paragraph. As you got deeper and deeper into the story, it got progressively worse. Since then, I haven’t seen any indication from that school or from anyone else that he is. The second they put him on administrative leave, that telegraphed to me and many others that they were looking for a way out with a settlement, outright fire for cause. I don’t know. I cannot imagine with what Urban Meyer said last week and Big Ten media days and the fact that he hasn’t said anything yet that he is going to be able to have anything more to say in terms of this football season. Let’s not forget. It’s irrelevant to the point that we’re talking about but this is one of the top four teams in the country, and now it looks like not only that is gone for him, but perhaps one of the great careers in college football history.”Others at ESPN feel differently.Desmond Howard, for example, believes Urban will keep his job.Sure do…— Desmond Howard (@DesmondHoward) August 2, 2018Ohio State is just a month away from the start of its season.
