Here’s Bruce’s post:

If only Meyer were an honest Christian who had integrity, he would have said exactly what Bruce wrote out. But, unfortunately, he said something else.

Bruce’s post not only bashed Meyer, but backed her son — of course — in wake of the backlash he has received this offseason. Meyer has been suspended three games, but will be back to the sidelines to coach the Buckeyes in Week 4.

Ohio State’s 2018 schedule starts with Oregon State on Sept. 1, followed by Rutgers on Sept. 8 and TCU on Sept. 15. Meyer will be coaching again when the Buckeyes take on Tulane on Sept. 22.
