College football insider Brett McMurphy, now a full-time employee at Stadium, appeared on the SEC Network with Peter Burns this morning to discuss the ongoing Urban Meyer saga at Ohio State.

The Buckeyes' Board of Trustees is set to meet on Wednesday morning to discuss Meyer's future. On Monday, they were verbally briefed by the investigative committee.

McMurphy said this morning that he finds it "troubling" that this took place.

"What I find there to be very troubling is that Ohio State is using a verbal recap of their investigation so that nothing will be available via public records, I give credit to Maryland who's on record saying they will be transparent in their investigation," he said.

While it's true that Ohio State's board was verbally briefed, insiders have responded to this comment, saying it's still possible there will be a written report. "Ohio State said the investigative team shared findings in “an informal briefing” Monday. They have not indicated whether they will publish a report (smart bet they will)," Eleven Warriors tweeted.

"No indication as yet that there won't be a written report, but jumping to the worst possible conclusion at every point in this story has gotten us to this point, so might as well keep it going," Marcus Hartman tweeted.

This is still far from over, clearly. Stay tuned.
