College football reporter Brett McMurphy was one of the most public faces around Ohio State’s Zach Smith scandal Black Calvin Ridley Jersey , which led to Urban Meyer’s suspension for three games at the start of the 2018 season. Reporting by McMurphy was part of the impetus for Ohio State to fire Smith, who’d been accused of repeated domestic violence, and to commission its own investigation into how Meyer handled allegations against his longtime receivers coach. As the 2018 season winds down, McMurphy’s made news about Meyer, Smith, and Ohio State again. On Tuesday, he reported for Stadium the 2017 transfer of a blue-chip Ohio State receiver might have been related to Smith using the N-word in a confrontation with that player. That runs counter to what Ohio State, the player involved, the player’s mother, and apparently the NCAA have agreed happened: that he transferred because of a family medical issue. Here’s what we know is true about four-star receiver Trevon Grimes’ transfer from the Buckeyes in 2017: After the season Kaleb McGary Jersey 2019 , Grimes, then a freshman, transferred from Ohio State to Florida. He had left the team that October, due to what Meyer called “family health issues.”His mother, Leah Grimes, had been diagnosed with cancer, UF later revealed. The NCAA gave Grimes immediate eligibility to play in 2018, declining to make him sit out the usual one year for underclass transfers. He got a hardship waiver, which is the NCAA’s usual tool to bend its rules for players dealing with difficult family issues. The player’s estranged father, LeBron Grimes Black Takkarist McKinley Jersey , now tells McMurphy his son didn’t actually transfer because of his mom’s health issues.There’s a lot in McMurphy’s new story, but here’s the key passage: LeBron Grimes alleged to McMurphy that Meyer knew of Smith’s “alleged racially-charged altercation in September 2017 with his son Trevon and helped keep it quiet.”McMurphy’s report challenges whether Leah Grimes was really as sick as the NCAA believed she was when it granted Trevon Grimes a hardship waiver. He also wrote Leah “has had her share of past legal issues” and goes on to list a few of them. In turn, Leah Grimes provided McMurphy with this statement: Trevon Grimes did not confirm McMurphy’s report. Zach Smith denied it.McMurphy wrote: A number of Ohio State players have refuted the version of events described by Grimes’ dad and reported by McMurphy. These are all members of Ohio State’s offense. All were on the team in September 2017, when Grimes’ father says the incident with Smith took place:Ohio State’s administration took the unusual step of denying the report by name. That included Meyer, the president, and the AD.Meyer suggested legal action by the school was possible: In a statement from the school, which president Michael Drake — who’s butted heads with Meyer over the Smith story before — tweeted out: Athletic director Gene Smith added: We’ll update this post as needed. Brett Maher kicked a 42-yard field goal on the final play, giving the Cowboys a 22-19 victory over Atlanta.The Cowboys won back-to-back road games after beating Philadelphia last week and climbed back into the NFC East race with a 5-5 record. They have a showdown with Washington on Thanksgiving Day, with Washington having lost Alex Smith with what appears to be a serious right ankle injury.The loss could prove the death knell for Atlanta, with a second consecutive setback dropping the Falcons to 4-6.Ezekiel Elliott Takkarist McKinley Jersey 2019 , who missed the loss to Atlanta last season on the first game of his six-game suspension, was the difference-maker for a second consecutive game. After getting 187 yards from scrimmage against the Eagles, the star running back had 201 yards from scrimmage against the Falcons.He rushed for 122 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries and caught seven passes for 79 yards.The Cowboys missed opportunities to put the game away and gave away a 10-point, fourth-quarter lead.Cole Beasley dropped a touchdown in the first quarter. Maher missed an extra point in the fourth quarter. Lance Lenoir had a terrible 15-yard penalty for a late hit.The teams traded field goals back and forth in the first three quarters. Atlanta led 9-6 before Dak Prescott scored the game’s first touchdown on a 4-yard run with 14:19 remaining in regulation. Elliott then scored on a 23-yard run after a Leighton Vander Esch interception of Matt Ryan.But Ryan rallied the Falcons with a fourth Matt Bryant field goal and a 34-yard touchdown pass to Julio Jones.The Cowboys, though, ate up the final 1:52 and won it on Maher’s second game-winning kick. He hit a 38-yarder as time expired against the Lions, giving Dallas a 26-24 win.
