Today, while we were eating at Joe's Crab Shack in Ft. Myers, the guy in the next booth was telling his son that Ohio State was going to have a press conference later this week to announce the firing of Gene Smith because of him trying to hide evidence concerning the Jim Tressel problems. He said that Jim had contacted Gene the same day and Gene wanted to keep it quite to keep the team out of trouble. I don't know if this is true but the guy seemed to know sports and everyone liked him, people were talking to him about how much they enjoyed his show earlier today.
If this is true could Urban Myer be the next Athletic Director at Ohio State?

I asked this on another thread but no answer.

I was thinking more like Jim Tressel.

I could definitely see Meyer as the tOSU AD long before I could see him as coach. I don't think Meyer will go back on his word to his family that he wouldn't coach again, at least until his son is out of school. But, as AD, he could be looking at it as helping save the reputation of a school he attended; and it's definitely more 9 to 5 than being the head coach.

Seriously?  What exactly on Urban Meyer's resume suggests that he is qualified to be an AD at any school, let alone OSU?  His sterling record as a disciplinarian?

Smith AND Tressel should be fired, IMO, but Meyer isn't the guy you'd want for either position, particularly at this point in time.

We like to eat at Joe's anytime we are in Ft.Myers. My son likes the atmosphere, I think he likes the waitresses more than the food. I know with the more that comes out about OSU, someone will be replacing Tressel and Smith. I read on some of the other sites that Urban purchased a house up in Ohio close to OSU and I do think he would jump at the chance to work at OSU, maybe it is to soon for him to get back into the grind but you never know.
