Wednesday evening’s press conference that followed the announcement that Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer would be suspended was as disastrous and awkward as one could imagine, complete with a jaw-dropping moment.

A reporter asked Meyer what he would say to Courtney Smith — the ex-wife of Zach Smith and alleged victim in the domestic violence incident in 2015 — and his response was incredibly shocking.

“I have a message for everyone in this, I’m sorry we are in this situation,” Meyer said.

That’s not exactly the heartfelt message or apology that anyone had expected from Meyer. And Twitter instantly called out the Buckeyes head coach for his careless remark.

It shined an ugly light on Meyer, even if it was just a misuse of words. Either way, it wasn’t a good look for the Ohio State head coach.
