One thing that’s abundantly clear in my opinion, urban did him wrong. He talks about “some coach” talking shit about him to nfl scouts and that’s why he didn’t go pro after the NC.

What Cardale construes as "talking shit about him", could just be an honest assessment from the coach that Cardale disagrees with, or that he is unable to accept.

I have a feeling that they will not just use the coaching change, but also the circumstances surrounding it.  They will likely say that Ohio State and Meyer knew that Meyer was dealing with health issues, but the extent of them, and potential impact, were not made clear to Tate when he was being recruited. That is, had Tate known Meyer was having health issues and that he would not be there for his full 4/5 years, he would not have come to Ohio State.  As well, I believe Zach Smith was the lead recruiter for Gorman, if I recall correctly, so I anticipate Tate's attorney mentioning the OSU investigation regarding that matter, Smith's firing, and Meyer's suspension.

Perhaps we just care more? Not sure, but not using the letter "M" during Michigan week, referring to them as TTUN or TSUN, our coaches knowing how many days until the next edition of "The Game". Do they do anything like that?

They refer to Ohio State as 'Ohio'. They smash buckeye nuts with a hammer on Bo Schembechler's grave. They had countdown clocks in their facility prior to Harbaugh's arrival, and he removed. them.

FWIW, I've been to both games at Maryland and had no issues with parking, nor getting in to the stadium. I did not find the experience any different, worse or better, than any other stadium I've been to.

This is the alternate uniform with the sublimated houndstooth pattern in the numbers and on the helmet stripe.

Comment 06 Nov 2018

How much did you have to drink prior to the game as they never wore those uniforms.

This uniform concept was designed by Gage LaGreca for the audience at Uniform Critics. It is a prototype and there are no plans by Nike to have the team wear this in an upcoming game. Gage is a graphic designer based out of Greenville, South Carolina. 

Comment 29 Aug 2018

Actually the report states:

The two discussed at that time whether the media could get access to Coach Meyer’s phone, and specifically discussed how to adjust the settings on Meyer’s phone so that text messages older than one year would be deleted. 

It specifically does not state that Meyer "asked" about the phones setting.

You said you know something, so out with it already. 

I agree, what is the point of not posting what you know.

When the story first broke, Finebaum immediately said Meyer would be fired. 

When Ohio State put Meyer on administrative leave Finebaum said it was just so that a buyout could be negotiated, or so Ohio State could determine grounds to fire Meyer with cause.

Now that Meyer is suspended for three games, Finebaum says that Meyer won't coach in 2019.

Why anyone gives anything this guy says one bit of credibility is beyond me.

LSU with Jeaux B hosting the U in Death Valley? Tall order for the Canes.

FWIW, this game is at Jerry's World in Arlington,Texas.

Comment 06 Aug 2018

The bigger possible issue is Urban saying "there was nothing," but without these other quotes that 11W is mentioning, that's pretty thin gruel to accuse him of lying. In saying, "there was nothing," Urban could very easily have meant that there was nothing to the report of an arrest; not necessarily that there was nothing to the rest of the story. Meyer was talking, off the cuff, speaking colloquially. Such comments are often truncated, vague, etc.   

The only reason that Meyer was speaking about Zach Smith were the reports of his 2018 arrest, the 2009 arrest, and the reported (inaccurately) 2015 arrest

It is not a stretch at all to believe that he was referring to the inaccurate report of a 2015 arrest when he made his comments. That inaccurate arrest report is the only reason he was asked questions about 2015.

He confirmed the 2009 part of the report. The 2018 part of the report is what ultimately got Zach Smith fired.

Comment 06 Aug 2018

One was a forum thread in which the original title stated that Zach Smith had been arrested by the Powell Police Department in connection with the criminal trespassing charge that set this whole imbroglio in motion. I cannot find that thread now, but I believe a staffer posted it. Only after some rather extended push-back by numerous members commenting about the choice of the term "arrested" was the thread title changed to reflect more accurate terminology.

He was arrested in 2018. Please see Jason's most recent post on this topic in the following thread, including screenshots:


Here is the text of his post on this subject:

For the last time, Zach Smith was arrested by Powell Police for the May 22, 2018 charge of criminal trespassing. These are facts:

– There is an arrest report
– The incident report lists an arrest date of 5/22/18
– Zach Smith was read his miranda warning at 7:46 p.m. that day
– The incident report was cleared by Sergeant Ronald Sallows of the Powell PD with a status of an “Arrest - Adult”
– Zach requested a trial by jury and pled not guilty (seriously, how do you get to the point of pleading if you haven't been arrested)?

Just because he wasn't cuffed does not mean he was not arrested that evening. We didn't change the headline because we were wrong with facts. We changed it so you guys would stop making the language we used the central issue.

I know emotions are running high, but I'm truly losing patience with these false accusations.

Thank you for posting this. 

I do have a request, could you add a copy of the redacted incident report that you received from the FOIA request, to go along with the document you already posted?

...they released a redacted report from October 26, 2015 outlining an incident that took place at Courtney Carano Smith's apartment the previous day.

Thanks, in advance.
