Urban Meyer and his future as Ohio State's head football coach are currently up in the air. The Buckeyes' Board of Trustees meeting began this morning. Here's the latest on everything that's happening.

The meeting began at 9 a.m. E.T. It was open to the public, but the board quickly went into a private, executive session to discuss the investigation and the future of Meyer.

Urban Meyer showed up to the meeting shortly after 9 a.m. E.T.

A couple of hours into the meeting, Ohio State trustee Clark Kellogg (yes, that Clark Kellogg) walked outside to grab a book to bring inside. He updated reporters on the status.

Urban Meyer's wife, Shelley Meyer, showed up to the building a little after 2 p.m. E.T.

While Urban Meyer has been inside with his wife, he's reportedly not inside the room with the trustees. So, it's unclear what exactly is going on. "Several trustees just came outside for a brief break. Clark Kellogg, an OSU trustee, said progress is being made. Urban Meyer is not in the room with trustees discussing the investigation," ESPN reporter Dan Murphy tweeted.

Everyone is growing a bit anxious.

Fans, including the notorious "Tennessee Jeff," have shown up to tailgate.

Ohio State spokesmen have said that a decision could be coming today, but it is not a guarantee. At this point, everyone's just waiting for something to happen.

Stay tuned.
