Glaring issue at hand revelation: I went to Ohio State and have as of late moved back to Columbus. All things considered, I’ve been pretty reliably basic via web-based networking media, just as on this webpage, about Urban Meyer and Ohio State’s treatment of the Zach Smith circumstance. Moreover, I’ve likewise been quite complimentary about McMurphy and his work, both here on the site and via web-based networking media.
Brett McMurphy distributed another doozie of a story toward the beginning of today on Stadium, his new home in games media following a year in addition to of independently publishing on Facebook while permitting his ESPN contract to slow down subsequent to being laid off the previous spring.
The article is titled “The Search for the Truth About Trevon Grimes’ Transfer From Ohio State to Florida,” and ahead of schedule into the article, it appeared as though it could be a conceivable slaughter shot of Urban Meyer’s residency at Ohio State. Furthermore, truly, now, a ton of Buckeye fans would approve of it.
In any case, that execute shot never comes, and keeping in mind that the article doesn’t reach an excessive number of determinations and casings it as an examination that never fully found an agreement, it’s at last incredibly defective and, in all genuineness, just wouldn’t have been distributed at other news sources.

The pair additionally refers to another player who confirmed the story, yet would not partake in the story. Moreover, it makes reference to some anonymous Florida players who answered to McMurphy that Grimes had spoken about the episode to them, however once more, they were absent when the occurrence occurred.
With respect to players who witnessed the episode being referred to, many took to Twitter to deny hearing any slur. It ought to be noticed these players have remained to a great extent quiet in guarding Smith as the other McMurphy reports have turned out as of late and months.

That is a long way from what we have here, however. The statement given by Grimes’ mom, after a lot of poking, says the accompanying:
