Everyone and their uncle seems to be making a prediction for the future of Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer. The Buckeyes' head coach has been on paid administrative leave for two weeks. A final decision could be coming soon.

Ohio State announced on Sunday, Aug. 5 that its investigation into Meyer and the handling of domestic violence accusations against Zach Smith would take two weeks.

That means we could know something official by the end of this week or the start of next week.

Brad Koffel, the attorney for the fired Buckeyes' assistant coach, has made a prediction for Urban Meyer and his future.

"PREDICTION: there is no smoking gun to fire Coach Meyer or Gene Smith; OSU announces tomorrow; and all sports coaches & athletes have to go through domestic abuse / #MeToo sensitivity training. I have no specific info not publicly available - just my guess," he wrote.

College football insider Bruce Feldman appeared on FOX Sports 1 earlier today and said that many around the situation feel it's increasingly likely that Meyer is retained.

“The deadline that the investigation was set for should be this Sunday,” Feldman said. “It should be anytime within the next 96 hours, and we’re expecting to find out what they have determined from their investigation into whether Urban Meyer did in fact follow the protocols and procedures that he said he did when he issued that statement from his own personal Twitter account about two weeks ago (Aug. 3).

“I think, from talking to people around this situation – not anyone that is investigating this – but people around the situation – there is an increasing chance that Urban Meyer retains his job."

Stay tuned.
