I dare you to read this article without thinking “oh, bullshit” at least once.

What a time to be alive!
Corch and Zach Smith with podcasts. Our cup truly runneth over.
Reader Walt sent me this beaut:
Before Stephen Garcia became a star for South Carolina, he was heavily recruited by Urban Meyer during his famous stint at Florida. In a recent interview, though, Garcia revealed some recruiting tactics from Meyer that really made him scratch his head.
In an interview with the Saturday Down South podcast via Swamp247, Garcia explained that Meyer made him and his friends feel a tad uncomfortable when they met in person. Garcia recalled a moment where he, Meyer, and his friends were sitting down together, and Meyer announced that he was going to say something that “may offend some people.”
“He’s sitting there talking and we’re just kind of chit-chatting and all the sudden he goes, ‘All right, Stephen, I’m going to say something right now and this may offend some people.’”
Garcia stated that he was worried Meyer was going to say something racial, but was just as surprised when Meyer bluntly told him to “stop being such a f****** p**** and just commit to Florida.”
“My brother’s old teammate was the only black guy in the room,” Garcia continued. “So I’m like, ‘What the hell is this guy about to say?’ And he’s like, ‘Yeah, Stephen, this is going to be offensive to some people.’ And I was like, ‘Oh God.’ I thought he was about to say some racial stuff or something.”
“He kind of just looks at me and he goes, ‘You’ve got to stop being such a f****** p**** and just commit to Florida,’” Garcia said, still seemingly in disbelief at the exchange.
We know how that turned out. Too bad, that could have been the beginning of a beautiful relationship, as Corch was even more forgiving of bad behavior than Spurrier was.
Makes you wonder what kind of sales pitch Meyer used to close the deal with the GPOOE™ and his family.
What do you get when you mash Zach Smith and conspiracy theory?
Former Ohio State wide receivers coach Zach Smith does not believe Urban Meyer has coached his last game. On his new podcast, Menace 2 Society, Smith explained why he believes Meyer will end up at USC.
“Someone that I know. That works in the United States Postal Service dropped a bomb on me last week. He tells me that Urban Meyer, his address, his house, has had certified mail delivered to and sent from to the University of Southern California. I’m talking several letters,” said Smith.
Smith could not confirm if this was true, but he believed it to be a decent source as Smith and Meyer both live in Dublin, Ohio.
“I will go on the record. Again I don’t know that he has communicated with them. It’s a decent source” said Smith.
However, at the end of the day Smith sounded confident that Meyer would end up at USC.
“I would put 1,000 dollars that he will be the head coach of USC in the near future” continued Smith.
And guess who continues to live rent-free in this mook’s head…
Yeah, that’s the first we’ve heard of Corch and USC, Zach. Don’t quit your day job… oh, right, you don’t have one of those now.
With speculation about USC coach Clay Helton’s job security already rampant, Leinart and Bush have already spoken of trying to persuade Meyer to take over if Helton is fired.
Did Meyer have any interest in nipping that in the bud or in opening the crack to the door?
“I learned my lesson long ago,” he said. “All I’m going to say is I believe I’m done (coaching). I think I’m done.”
At least he’s trying to avoid blowback. For now, anyway.
Gosh, look who’s back in the news.
Zach Smith was arrested on Thursday by the Delaware County Sherriff’s Office for violating a Civil Protection Order. The former Ohio State wide receivers coach became confrontational with staff at Scioto Ridge Elementary when they did not allow him to pick up his children. He was arrested and taken to the Delaware County Jail, the Toledo Blade’s Kyle Rowland first reported.
Smith was charged with violating the CPO, which is a misdemeanor. He will be arraigned at 10 a.m. Friday.
Corch sure can pick ’em.
How this clown managed to stay on a coaching staff as long as he did is a testament to administrative tolerance and stubborn blindness.
Zach Smith’s attorney, Brad Koffel, told WSYX-TV in Columbus, “Same old, same old. Absolutely malicious move by his ex-wife to have Zach arrested at their kids’ school when he was there to pick them up. She’s in contempt of court for not giving him the kids last night which she was supposed to. Just very sad for the children. 100% avoidable by both of them.”
