On his radio show, Urban Meyer said a decision about who will take Ohio State's first snap at QB is coming in the next couple days. But when he tells Cardale Jones and J.T.

"I have no reason to believe I will not be coaching on Saturday," Flood said, according to Rutgers is currently investigating an email Flood allegedly sent to a university professor regarding one of his player's grades to see if the football coach broke any school or NCAA rules by attempting to influence the professor in any way.
