A lot of Urban Meyer text messages have been uncovered as a result of Ohio State's investigation into the head coach and how he handled domestic violence allegations against now-fired assistant coach Zach Smith.

More messages were uncovered this week when Ohio State released new documents relating to the investigation.

There was one text message exchange that had people talking. Urban Meyer's agent, Trace Armstrong, told him that two women named Laura and Colleen were going to need his phone for four hours.

These women have since been identified. The conspiracy theorists can go away. "The "Laura and Colleen" mentions in the OhioState doc dump I'm told are Laura Hoey & Colleen Conry who were part of Urban Meyer's legal team & coordinated the preservation & imaging of his phone that day for purposes of the investigation," Bruce Feldman reports. "The attorneys from the Ropes & Gray firm imaged/preserved Meyer’s cell so they could have a record of all the information. If they deleted messages they risked being disbarred. Conry btw is a former federal prosecutor."

So there you go.
