New Urban Meyer punishment odds have been released in anticipation of Ohio State's announcement following its Board of Trustees meeting, which began at 9 a.m. E.T. today. The new odds suggest no punishment will be handed down.

The odds, from SportsBettingDime.com, say the most-likely outcome for Meyer at this point is an immediate reinstatement.

"As for Meyer’s fate, the odds-makers favor No Suspension or Penalty (9/11), but if a penalty is given, they expect it to be harsh, with a Full Season Suspension (6/1) or 4-Game Suspension (6/1) the most likely outcomes," SportsBettingDime.com says.

An announcement on Meyer's status is expected to come soon.

Meyer showed up to the Board of Trustees meeting shortly after 9 a.m. E.T. He's been inside the building ever since.

It appears that a press conference for this afternoon is being set up inside the building. Eleven Warriors has reported that a decision on Meyer is coming today. "Ohio State will announce their findings and decision on Urban Meyer's status today according to two sources with knowledge of the proceedings," they tweeted.

As of now, though, we just have to wait.

The Board of Trustees had lunch delivered in and reporters on the scene have tweeted that they, too, had lunch ordered. So, it looks like it could be another hour or two before we learn anything definitive on Meyer.

Stay tuned.
