Those bashing Zack Smith seem to be lacking understanding.

 Curtis Samuel was a first-team All-American in 2016 after a 74-catch, 865-yard campaign; 
 In each of the past four seasons he has had multiple receivers earn all-Big Ten Conference accolades: Samuel and Noah Brown in 2016, Michael Thomas, Braxton Miller and Jalin Marshall in 2015, Thomas, Evan Spencer and Devin Smith in 2014, and Smith and Corey “Philly” Brown in 2013. 
 His wide receiver unit has produced three team captains: Brown, Spencer and Miller; and 
He’s had a receiver – Smith – lead the nation in yards per catch (28.2 in 2015).

The Ohio State receivers are reaching the NFL as well. Samuels was the third Ohio State receiver in the last three years to be drafted in the second round, after Devin Smith in 2015 (New York Jets) and Michael Thomas in 2016 (New Orleans). Thomas had a terrific rookie campaign with the Saints, leading all rookies in the NFL in receptions (92), yards (1,137) and TDs (nine) while his 92 receptions was second-most in NFL history for a rookie.

Additionally, Braxton Miller (Houston, 2016) and Noah Brown (Dallas, 2017) were NFL Draft picks and Corey Brown is now a three-year NFL veteran. Jalin Marshall spent the 2016 season with the New York Jets after signing a free agent contract.

Smith has received numerous accolades for recruiting, including being named the 2016 Scout.com Big Ten recruiter of the year, a 2015 and 2016 Rivals “top recruiter” and the 2014 Big Ten recruiter of the year by both Rivals and Scout.

And Smith is the grandson of former Ohio State head coach Earle Bruce

Undefeated season, Made 2 of 3 playoffs, national championship, 61-6....

Yes a whole article about kickers and I'm thankful for it. So important to have talent at these positions. Other positions mistakes can be hidden and most often overcome. One mistake here is magnified and could cost you a season.

Just further proof conference nuthugging is stupid. Conference strength is largely a myth. Either your team is good or it isn't. Good teams have bad games and lose to lesser opponents. What conference they are a member of has little to nothing to do with post season success. Just as "sec,sec,sec" was stupid so is rooting for B1G just because it's the B1G. I consider it a good day when wisky, pedo U, and Sparta lose. And of course scum losing to anybody is like Christmas morning. Go Buckeyes and to hell with all the rest.

Nothing wrong with all the emotional reactions. So far final decisions are reasonable. Let's hope the ones who are actually guilty do not get the Joe Mixon treatment.

What? Any opportunity to bash scUM is a good one. Don't like the topic then don't participate

With our talent, recent history, Urban Meyer, etc. It is easy to see how writers from all across the country would rank the way they have. No issues with it other than scUM is not logical at all
