The Predictable Scandals of Urban Meyer

USA Today columnist Dan Wolken stops by to talk Urban Meyer, Ohio State, and college football.


This week we speak to USA Today sports columnist Dan Wolken about Ohio State Buckeye football coach Urban Meyer and his three-game suspension to start the 2018 season. We talk about the sport of college football, its mounting scandals, the NCAA, and what can be done to change them.

We also have Choice Words about Kyrie Irving and his entry into the Standing Rock Sioux community. We also have Just Stand Up and Just Sit Down awards for former ESPN commentator Jemele Hill and Betsy Devos, a Kaepernick Watch, and more!

Might as well go ahead and rename the place. It’s Urban Meyer State University now

Why Kyrie Irving’s Connection to the Standing Rock Sioux Matters

Thank you for reading The Nation!

We hope you enjoyed the story you just read. It’s just one of many examples of incisive, deeply-reported journalism we publish—journalism that shifts the needle on important issues, uncovers malfeasance and corruption, and uplifts voices and perspectives that often go unheard in mainstream media. For nearly 160 years, The Nation has spoken truth to power and shone a light on issues that would otherwise be swept under the rug.

In a critical election year as well as a time of media austerity, independent journalism needs your continued support. The best way to do this is with a recurring donation. This month, we are asking readers like you who value truth and democracy to step up and support The Nation with a monthly contribution. We call these monthly donors Sustainers, a small but mighty group of supporters who ensure our team of writers, editors, and fact-checkers have the resources they need to report on breaking news, investigative feature stories that often take weeks or months to report, and much more.

There’s a lot to talk about in the coming months, from the presidential election and Supreme Court battles to the fight for bodily autonomy. We’ll cover all these issues and more, but this is only made possible with support from sustaining donors. Donate today—any amount you can spare each month is appreciated, even just the price of a cup of coffee.

The Nation does not bow to the interests of a corporate owner or advertisers—we answer only to readers like you who make our work possible. Set up a recurring donation today and ensure we can continue to hold the powerful accountable.

Thank you for your generosity.
