Look: ‘College GameDay’ signs take aim at Urban Meyer
One of college football’s traditions is clever signs in the background of the “College GameDay” set, and there was one favorite target for some of Saturday’s fans.
Ohio State coach Urban Meyer, suspended by the school over his handling of former assistant Zach Smith, was mocked by many fans, both for the nature of his suspension and the many excuses he’s used since to defend his conduct both before and during the investigation. First, there was the sort that alluded to Meyer allegedly covering for Smith.

Some took the simple approach.

Then there were those who zeroed in on the fact that Meyer deleted his old text messages as the investigation took shape.
Just saw the first tOSU reference at Gameday.

Meyer has spent a lot of time defending his conduct in recent days. It’s fair to say that a lot of these people are simply never going to buy it.
