Urban Meyer remains on paid administrative leave following an investigation into how he handled assault allegations against one of his former assistant coaches. That investigation is set to wrap up this weekend.

With Ohio State set to announce a decision soon, one college football insider was asked what he expects the school to do. He thinks Ohio State will retain Urban.

However, he might be subject to a short suspension.

Here's Ralph Russo's prediction for what Ohio State will do with Meyer.

This seems to be the growing consensus over the past two weeks. Initial reports suggested Meyer would be fired, but that tune has changed recently and now Vegas sports books believe Meyer will face a short suspension.

Ohio State president Michael Drake announced earlier this week that the school's investigation will be complete on Sunday. A final decision is likely to come early next week.

The Buckeyes open the season against Oregon State on September 1.
