Kirk Herbstreit Has A Message For Ohio State Fans Who Attended The Urban Meyer Rally

A relatively small group of Ohio State fans gathered outside Ohio Stadium on Monday night to hold an "Urban Meyer Rally," showing their support for the national championship-winning head coach who's currently on paid administrative leave.

There was chanting. There were signs. There was the father of a former Ohio State star.

In all, while these fans only represent a very small fraction of Ohio State's fan base, it was not a great look.

ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit weighed in on the rally on Twitter. He had a message for some of the Ohio State fans who were there.

"Ohhh boyyy," he wrote.

"Ummmm.....excuse me, woman to the right in the shades..Brett McMurphy, who broke the story, doesn’t work for ESPN."

Urban Meyer, meanwhile, remains on paid administrative leave during Ohio State's investigation.

The Buckeyes announced on Sunday night that the investigation into Meyer is expected to be completed within two weeks.

One Ohio State insider, Jeff Snook, claims that fans will be "shocked" by the findings of the investigation.

“There is so much more to this story, so much that I think the public will be shocked when it is all revealed,” Snook wrote.

“And the bottom line is this: Don’t be surprised if Urban Meyer is on the sidelines September 1 in the opener against Oregon State.”

Ohio State is set to open its season on Sept. 1 against Oregon State. The Buckeyes are currently in practice, led by interim coach Ryan Day.
