In this week’s episode of Slate’s sports podcast Hang Up and Listen, Josh Levin is joined by Deadspin’s Laura Wagner and the New Yorker’s Vinson Cunningham to talk about Urban Meyer’s possible ouster as the head football coach at Ohio State due to his failure to act on reports that one of his assistant coaches was a domestic abuser. They also discuss new Pro Football Hall of Fame inductees Terrell Owens and Ray Lewis, and they assess whether the NFL’s new helmet rule will change the game.
