Eddie George believes Ohio State should have 'severe' punishment if cover-up is true
Eddie George is a legend in Columbus. The 1995 Heisman Trophy winner even has a restaurant named after him in the college town.
But the former All-American running back is speaking out against his alma mater in the wake of the Zach Smith scandal and Urban Meyer’s alleged knowledge of his assistant coach’s violent history.

George recently spoke with TMZ Sports regarding Ohio State and what the repercussions should be if there was a cover-up in Columbus. The former Buckeye doesn’t believe his former school should be let off easy if the reports are true.
“Domestic violence is unacceptable at any level,” George told TMZ. “If it is indeed that, then the punishment needs to be handed down and it should be severe. There’s no way that someone should cover up anything of that magnitude.”
It’s clear that George doesn’t care who the coach is or what program it is, there should be harsh consequences for those kind of actions.
The school’s investigation into Meyer was expected to be completed within 14 days originally, but Ohio State President Michael Drake later said that the investigation will be “finished when it’s finished.”
