Milestone and new info

Wow I cant imagine the support that this has generated in such a short amount of time. I personally want to thank the best damn fans in the land Buckeye Nation! Also to all those who aren't Ohio State fans and just want to do what's right. Props to all of you.

There have been a lot of news of course in the last 24 hrs. I cant get to all of it but I will try my best. Urban Meyer did release a statement Friday afternoon stating that he did know about what happened in 2015 and actually told his superior Gene Smith. He also said that what he said at BTN Media Days he wasnt prepared for and misspoke.

Also Zach Smith had an interview on SportsCenter and a couple of radio interviews he supported Urban but stated that Gene Smith knew about the incidences and didn't do anything. He also said that the domestic violence incidents were untrue and he was only trying to protect himself and then wife.

Due to this new info I'm considering not having Gene Smith as our lead contact and I'm currently looking for a new contact. I believe that Gene Smith's employment with the university is in jeopardy and obviously that wouldn't be helpful for us at all for him to be the lead contact.

Sorry for the rant and once again thank you everyone for the support and let's keep it going nationwide and hopefully worldwide. So continue to do the great work and get the world out. O-H!
