OSU now faces the "failure to monitor" charge from the NCAA and has cut 5 more scholarships over the next three years.
If Meyer was to come to OSU, he'd be dealing with some significant competitive disadvantages his first several years due to self imposed penalties and whatever the NCAA tacks on. He'd also be inheriting a gap in recruiting classes as this business will likely result in at least one lack later class because here is no direction at the moment.
If he was burnt out from the grind of being the best, I'm not sure that this mess not give him significant cause for pause....
