On Monday, they were verbally briefed by the investigative committee.McMurphy said this morning that he finds it “troubling” that this took place.“What I find there to be very troubling is that Ohio State is using a verbal recap of their investigation so that nothing will be available via public records, I give credit to Maryland who’s on record saying they will be transparent in their investigation,” he said.”What I find there to be very troubling is that Ohio State is using a verbal recap of their investigation so that nothing will be available via public records, I give credit to Maryland who’s on record saying they will be transparent in their investigation” – @Brett_McMurphy— Peter Burns (@PeterBurnsESPN) August 21, 2018While it’s true that Ohio State’s board was verbally briefed, insiders have responded to this comment, saying it’s still possible there will be a written report.“Ohio State said the investigative team shared findings in “an informal briefing” Monday.
