Reporters and analysts weighed in on Urban Meyer's suspension following his handling of domestic abuse allegations against former Buckeyes assistant coach Zach Smith.

Social media was quick to react to his suspension. Meyer said he followed his heart instead of his head while addressing the media.

Key findings from the 23-page report revealed that Courtney Smith said she told Shelley Meyer in 2015 that Smith assaulted her. Urban Meyer then asked a staffer about deleting text messages more than a year old by changing the settings on his phone.

What Meyer will lose during his suspension won't seem to make a dent in his pocketbook.

Meyers' lack of action and allowing Smith to continue coaching under his leadership raised questions among reporters and analysts like David Pollack.
