NORMAN, OK – SEPTEMBER 17: Head coach Urban Meyer of the Ohio State Buckeyes walks off the field alongside his wife Shelley after his team won 45-24 against the Oklahoma Sooners at Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium on September 17, 2016 in Norman, Oklahoma. (Photo by Scott Halleran/Getty Images)The Urban Meyer-Ohio State saga went to another level of drama on Saturday, as it was reported that Texas head coach Tom Herman was the one who leaked news of the allegations against now-fired assistant coach Zach Smith to college football insider Brett McMurphy.These allegations have since been denied by both the Texas head coach and his wife, Michelle Herman. McMurphy has also said that it isn’t true.“I have never revealed my sources in my nearly four decade journalistic career & I am not going to start now. However, I will say unequivocally that Tom Herman was not my source,” McMurphy tweeted.Jeff Snook, the reporter who broke the news of Herman’s alleged role, was able to get a comment from Urban Meyer’s wife, Shelley Meyer.Shelley Meyer, who allegedly texted with the ex-wife of Zach Smith regarding the allegations, was unable to comment on the record, but she did thank Snook for pursuing both sides of the story.“I really do appreciate you doing your job with integrity and checking on all the points, unlike some others,” Shelley Meyer said, via a text message. “I just can’t comment and I am very sorry. Thank u.”This is an ongoing saga and it’s unclear if anything reported on Saturday – even if it’s true – will actually have a bearing on what happens to Urban Meyer and Ohio State’s football program.The investigation into Urban Meyer and the program, regarding the handling of domestic violence accusations against Zach Smith, is expected to be completed soon.
Stirred or Shaken? How to Make a Perfect Vodka Martini The speaker in the BoomCase features a 100-watt amplifier that powers two 6.5-inch woofers, one 5-inch mid-range speaker, and four dome tweeters. There is a rechargeable lithium battery which provides over 18-plus hours of playtime per charge through an auxiliary cable or wirelessly via Bluetooth. The structure that houses everything is handmade from birch wood and features leather trim, Harris tweed, and steel hardware. (Want to know more about Harris tweed? We thought you’d never ask.)On the Hendrick’s side of things, you’ll find one tea pot, two tea cups, two saucers, and a placeholder for a 750-ml bottle (which is sadly not included).The two companies saw themselves in each other. Hendrick’s produces small batches of gin under the guise of a single stillman while The BoomCase’s founder, Dominic Odbert, has been creating speaker systems in vintage suitcases in his boutique studio since 2009. Odbert doesn’t just use suitcases though — he’s also made this awesome barrel speaker system, nicknamed the BoomBarrel XL.If this is up your alley, you’re going to want to act fast, because only 15 of these were made. They’re selling for $775 each in The Boomcase’s store.

Like, way up. You might say they know how to turn it up to eleven. In the past, they’ve created cucumber-slicing contraptions, Negroni-making machines, and they even had freakin’ dirigible for a little while (how many companies — outside of, say, Michelin — can say that?). This time, Hendrick’s is bringing their special brand of exquisite to the user in the form of a collaboration with vintage suitcase boombox company The BoomCase.The collaboration is not only a portable speaker system in line with The BoomCase’s other products, but it is also a gin tea set — because the best time to have gin is all the time (coincidentally, all the time is also the best time to have tea, so win-win on that one).
