Today, in empty threats

If you didn’t hear, Brett McMurphy returned to the Ohio State beat, this time with a messy story that, at its heart, is about Zach Smith being Zach Smith, i.e., an asshole.  In response, you could hear the howling from Columbus half a continent away.

But the topper was this:

Talk about your “go ahead and make my day, punk” moment there.  I’m sure there’s nothing McMurphy would like more than to have Urban Meyer undergo discovery, where he’d have to answer questions about Zach Smith (among other things) under oath.  Yeah, like that’s ever gonna happen.

I imagine this will be a topic Corch will try to ignore at his next presser.  Meanwhile, Zach Smith is the gift that keeps giving.

    My only question is will Corch have his brain aneurysm before or after he receives his subpoena?

    I’m beginning to believe that Meyer kept Smith close to keep him under control. As long as he was employed and under Meyer’s thumb, he couldn’t be too much trouble. Now fired, he is unhinged and causing everybody headaches. (seewhatididthere?)

  3. Does tOSU really want to take on Hurricane Brett? If they do, what’s their case? The university is public property of the State of Ohio … he can’t be barred from the campus.

    Zach Smith is a douche … I think I just insulted feminine products by making that statement.

    I STRONGLY encourage anyone who has not checked out Zach Smith’s twitter feed to do so. It’s unreal.

    The more this gets stirred, the more it stinks. Corch under oath! Pass the Popcorn!

    McMurphy just continues to own them.

    They are all scum. Not the kids, but the coaching staff and administration.

    I think for Urban, this will fall under the heading of “Be careful what you ask for because you just might get it”. It think EVERYONE other that tOSU would love to have Urban deposed under oath. I wonder if any of his time at Florida would be pertinent to the process and open to discovery? Now THAT would be fun to watch!

    Moral Turpitude. Dudes, I love me some moral turpitude……

    And the kicker…this story involves UF and the implication of institutional lying, too. Urban and Mullen are still thick as thieves.

    How dense do you have to be in order to believe anything that comes out of the mouth of Urban or Gene Smith, or any of their institutional lackeys? Took a $20K private jet flight down to Florida on a weekday before a game to offer “support” to the mother of a player who just quit the team after an incident with one of the coaches. Right.

      Kirby does that all the time, right? Saban? Blow off a Monday before a conference game, both press conference and practice, go catch some waves 1,000 miles away on a private jet, meet with the family of a transferring player who has 3 catches?


  11. Brett’s story is messy (he admits as much that it’s really hard to sort it out), but Meyer getting on a plane to Ft. Lauderdale stinks to high heaven.

      I love it because of who is involved, but that story…if not just a hit piece…lacked some journalistic credibility. Other than the estranged father, all the key players at best “no comment” or else outright deny. I don’t think that would have passed editorial muster in a lot of newsrooms.


      • California_dawg

        Agreed. There’s definitely a story here, but this piece feels hastily written. Although any story that pisses off Urban is a win in my book.

      • I probably agree. The chartered flight is kind of the killer app though. Urbana’s explanation for that $20k is total horseshit.


      • Russ

        Yeah, that’s my thought, too. As the players said, I doubt they would sit around while Smith called one of their teammates the n-word. This seems like a hit piece to me. Maybe Mcmurphy is playing the long game trying to goad aOSU into a law battle.


    • DoubleDawg1318

      Even if this story is a little messy, it could also function as kick to the hornets nest that jars other details loose.

    While we’re at it, I would like to ask a few questions of several other people at tOSU under oath, too. 😉

      Not sure those championship refs are all out of ohio’s campus, think they were from Delany’s hit squad from Chi Town. I know we would all like an explanation about that offsides on the blocked punt, considering Simmons was onside a full yard!! Of course, it would make sense if Urbie had something to do with those 2nd half calls,


  13. Go Dawgs!

    Senator, I’m sure that Corch Meyers wouldn’t bat an eyelash at the idea of going through discovery under oath about his role in Zach Smith’s foibles. After all, he’s already faced down the intensity of Ohio State’s own investigation which surely left no stone unturned and was every bit as thorough.
