Taking a very pro Urban Meyer stance right now seems like a questionable thing to do given the guy is on administrative leave while the school investigates his handling of domestic violence incidents involving former coach Zach Smith and his ex-wife, Courtney Smith. But football is everything for a lot of people, so, of course, some Ohio State fans embarrassed themselves by holding a rally in support of Meyer at Ohio Stadium.


Jeff Hamms, aka “Tennessee Jeff,” emphatically led the festivities:


Who the f*** is Tennessee Jeff and why is he heading an Ohio State rally? Myrtle Beach Online reports he’s from Canton and is a diehard fan of the Buckeyes, though he never actually attended the school. He organized the rally to show Urban there’s a portion of the fanbase blindly backing him.

“I want Urban to see this. I want everybody in Buckeye Nation to see this. . . . Listen, man. We’re Buckeye Nation and we’re Ohio State strong, we’re Urban Meyer strong,” he said in the video. “This man has done nothing wrong period, and I wanna show support. That’s all it’s about.”

The best part about the rally were probably all the ESPN/SEC signs drawn up for the occasion:


Taking an anti-ESPN stance is a trendy thing to do these days, but it was the WWL who both fired Brett McMurphy and held off from reporting on his story for hours — two moves they were killed for last week.
Poor ESPN just can’t win these days.
