The wife of arguably the best coach in college football now finds herself in the middle of one of the most divisive current issues regarding sports and politics.
Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer's wife Shelley apologized yesterday after a tweet of her's criticized NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick for kneeling during the national anthem. Mrs. Meyer had replied to a tweet from Columbus' 10TV Sunday, saying Kaepernick had "made his choices." That tweet has since been deleted.

After her response provoked a wide range of reactions from people on all sides, Meyer again took to social media to apologize, mostly for the divisive comments she may have provoked from others.

Urban Meyer has yet to respond to what his wife said, and it is unknown if he even will. The Buckeyes are off this weekend before welcoming 2nd-ranked Penn State to Columbus on Oct. 28.
