As we await the Urban Meyer verdict at Ohio State, reporters are camped out on campus waiting for a decision to come in and a press conference to be called.

We don't have a time for a decision yet. We do have a very brief comment from one high-profile Ohio State trustee on the matter though.

CBS Sports college basketball analyst Clark Kellogg attended Ohio State from 1979-82. He now serves on the Board of Trustees, a position he's maintained since 2010.

A reporter from 105.7 The Zone in Columbus spotted Kellogg and asked for an update. He said "progress is being made."

We could find out a big update on Meyer's status at any moment.

Early in the process, it seemed like there was a very real chance that the school would move on from him. As time has passed, that seems less likely.

Now, the major question is probably whether Ohio State considers this administrative leave "time served" and reinstates Meyer, or if he will serve a multi-game suspension.

The Buckeyes start their season at home against Oregon State on Sept. 1. From there, the team hosts Rutgers, and travels down to Texas for a neutral site game against TCU, which is the first huge test for the team.

Ohio State enters the season as a top five team, and is considered the favorite in the Big Ten and among the favorites to make the College Football Playoff.
