I realize that I am in the minority here and will take a lot of flack for my position, but here it goes anyways. Ohio State is a public instituion, its employees are government employees. They should absolutley observe the separation of church and state. I want you guys to just picture in your mind for a minute if they were talking about a different religion than the one you think is the right one. If Meyer and the staff were Muslim, Hindu, Taoist, or Jewish, would you guys be saying it was ok for them to be holding services where the team was pressured to be involved. Make no mistake, there is pressure to fit in on the team. What if Meyer took time out for players to voluntarily kneel down to Mecca 3 times a day during practice? You can't tell me that people would be free not to participate without feeling undue pressure. During the team prayer before dinner on the show, did you see any players abstaning from the prayer? Do you really think every single player in there is a Christian? Separation of church and state is just as important to the different religions in this country as it is to the government.

We are both atheists. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours
If its optional whats the big deal?
Regardless of the actual religion involved, I do think the woman makes a good point about certain players feeling pressure to attend so they don't get on his bad side. I'm not saying UFM would ever do that, but I certainly wouldn't want to find out either. Anyways, if that person is so religious, they can just go to church like they should have already been doing.
