That’s what has always really pissed me off about the Zach Smith fiasco. Urban deserved a lot of criticism post Florida. But he had done things differently at Ohio State and had very few off the field incidents involving his players. Hell, Stewart Mandel of all people actually commented on that last May when someone took a shot at Urban. And of course all of that goodwill built up after the last six years was destroyed and it become ‘more trouble with an Urban Meyer program’
Urban deserved to leave with recognition for establishing an excellent culture at Ohio State. His blind spot for Earle prevented that.
