Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Courtney Smith remembers the exact moment her life fell apart. She was alone in her home in Powell, Ohio, a suburb of Columbus. She knew that she did not want her kids there or with her ex-husband. She wanted them somewhere safe, so she sent them to stay with her dad. She closed the curtain and the blinds, and turned on the TV. It was July 24, 2018, and she watched Urban Meyer, then the head football coach of the Ohio State Buckeyes, give a press conference.

What she wanted and needed was for Meyer to tell the truth about what he knew had happened between her and her ex-husband, Zach Smith. Zach had been Ohio State's wide receivers coach until he was fired a day earlier, after college football reporter Brett McMurphy published a report about Smith being the subject of a protection order and having been investigated for domestic violence against Courtney in the past.

This is common in sports because of the massive amount of dollars that surround these ---------.

When I was in college there was a rape on campus by the star center for the basketball team. I knew the girl. She was shamed, called a ----, humiliated by everyone connected by the team to protect the rapist. The college swept it under the rug. The police were stonewalled by the college president. She hung herself in her dorm room feet away from where he pushed his way in and raped her.

How many lives must be destroyed in the name of entertainment?

As long as people think adults chasing balls is a good use of time. The universe offers endless discoveries. Nah, balls.

The actions of Urban Meyer and the other Ohio State officials are repulsive.

They're also staggeringly incompetent. Keeping this clown around the program for years when he was ordering sex toys on company accounts and sending them to his work address? Making videos of his junk every famous place the team visited, including the White House? He earned $300,000 a year!
