Another head scratcher re: tOSU

[1]
Posted: Aug 14, 2018 2:00 PM
 

So Zach Smith gets a DUI, doesn't report it to Meyer, then pleads to a lesser offense that still results in a 6-month license suspension, but Meyer doesn't notice? And none of this super close knit coaching staff knew about that, either? If I suddenly had one of my employees show up to work in an uber for 6 months straight, I think I would probably have a question or two.

Not suggesting it changes anything about the current situation in Columbus, but just that there appears to be a culture of denial, concealment, and "speak no evil, see no evil, hear no evil" around there. Urban is either complicit in the lack of disclosure, or is is painfully oblivious. Either way, it reflects poorly on him.

I’m sure he drove on the suspended license. Many do it


Probably true, but that is also horrible judgment

Then I suppose as far as Urban is concerned, ignorance is a valid excuse. And I still find it hard to believe that no one on the coaching staff knew.

But I will move on...no need to beat this horse any longer. I am pretty sure I know what the outcome of this investigation will be, regardless of what facts end up being proven.

A judge in Columbus that went to OSU? What are the odds ??

“The judge does not “reduce” charges in Ohio. The prosecutor and defense dispute and argue evidence, eventually negotiate a plea, and then their plea agreement goes to the judge, who accepts the plea 99.9999% of the time.”

First time offenders generally are granted “reduced sentences.”

Urban is complicit and not painfully oblivious... what he truly hopes is that people buy his feigned ignorance but he's going to learn that ignorance is not an excuse...

Always been like that. Clarett, the tatoos, the pervy wrestling doc, the diving coach. That there is no look in the AD himself is mind boggling

is running that town.


have you been to clemson lately?

you can live 5 miles from campus and never need a car now. heck, they have shuttles running to greenville now.



I duuno how this could stay out of urban sight with all Michigan folks running around, but it is possible to get tbrough school without a car. I didn't get a car until I inherited my great grandmother's Malibu when I was 21.


I live 3.5 hours away but am in Clemson at least 20 times/yr

I have a son in school there.

I know they have a better shuttle system for STUDENTS than they had when I was in school, but I don't see a full-time football coach using that as his sole means of transportation, and especially not doing so without anyone noticing

There is validity to the point about provisional licenses for suspended drivers, but as pointed out, these come after a trail/court appearance and hours and hours of alcohol and/or defensive driving classes.

Good points, but I am still not buying it.

He was sentenced in the city of Dublin Ohio's Mayor's Court in April 2013. He pleaded guilty to a charge of physical control, a first-degree misdemeanor. Along with a suspended license, Smith had to complete 72 hours of driver-intervention courses. According to court records, Smith he allowed limited driving privileges. Koffel, his attorney, said that included the ability to drive on recruiting trips and other trips related to his job.

Not sure about Ohio but in SC can’t a DUI offender get a restricted license to drive to work if it is a first offense. Seems like that use to be the case but not absolutely sure.


yep, and I haven't heard of a repeal of it either...***

He was also required to take a 72 hour class per ESPN. I am sure a fulltime collage football coach has time for that??. No one at OSU noticed ??

It might be like here in NJ as well. You can have a first offense and still drive but you have to use a breathalyzer before starting the car up. I know someone who recently had this happen and thats his punishment essentially. Not sure for how long though.

With trying to bury Urban/tOSU alive. It's their house...their problems...their credibility/integrity/reputation. What happens will happen...same as Maryland...and, well, I wanted to say UNC, but...

The ONLY thing that matters in any of these events elsewhere is they should resonate LOUDLY and CLEARLY with Clemson, from top to bottom and side to side. Keep your nose clean...the ship tidy...and the current culture blooming. Those are the issues Clemson can control and all that we as fans and supporters should be concerned with. Oh...and feel blessed Clemson isn't in the media for the wrong reasons. That's a 'Kangaroo Court' if ever there was one.

Go Tigers! Yell across Those Hills...forever!
