Please, how fast do we forget that Just 2 seasons ago we had a handfull of coaches that Buckeye Nation were screaming about. It blows my mind to read posts that says "Zack Smith is our weak link". I have full trust in Urb and Co that they know his abilities and its much too early to pass judgement..
Just remember... his grand pappy had a lot to do with Urban's deep buckeye roots and because of that it's a good reason why Urb is our head coach today.
I take the trade off any day..

Prove it! Our wide wr recruiting has been crap lately. It's almost like Tressel and recruiting Tight ends. What position have we recruited worse on the team then receiver?
He doesn't recruit the position he recruits a region.
Considering it's been 1 year there isn't much of a test sample for either case...make a case in a year or two after he's settled into a groove.
dude, at the moment we are not very deep at WR spot. Urb has full controll in recruting them. Zach is only going to be on Mop up dutys on getting the top talent for visits. As far as talent goes, just watch the drop balls..
we just need to get better talent. It will come!!!. Go Bucks!!
Alpha is on herer all the time, yet he's still clueless to the fact that each coach doens't recruit just their position, they recruit a region. Ignorance is bliss, isn't it Alpha...
Yeah but regardless of the region, a wr is still at some point going to have to be sold on his position coach. Carrington or Clark decision will have a part on if they will come to OSU.
Up with people!
And he has nothing to do with wr recruiting, recruits don't care about there position coach.
And he has been killing it in his region!

Your the ignorant one. If you believe that Zach Smith doesn't recruit wide receivers that's not from his region. You think he's just saying hi and bye to Wilson and Clark right now?????? While they were on campus??? Get outta here
He's doing nothing in his region, which yesterday i found out was virgnia.. your strengthening the he is the weak link point!!!

Absolutely, btw von bells parents speak about withers almost as highly as they do urban! Withers, as well as the more elite recruiters can sell themselves as father figures...
It was O line 2 years ago...lb last year...we'll get it fixed...
Yeah, but recruits know he is going to be their position coach, and at some point, they do meet him regardless of region.
The staff has been here 12 months. All we know about Smith is the following :
1. 13 months ago, our current receiving corps couldn't catch a cold. Now they can, and Philly is a "receiver".
2. The staff brought in 2012 receivers who had been recruited and verbaled to the prior regime.
3. 2013 signees are Jalin Marshall, Taivon Jacobs, Marcus Baugh...serious talent.
4. Going down to the wire in 2013, we are finalists for Wilson, Clark, Timmons, Elder, and Carrington. Not bad.
5. He likes Twitter. Some like that and some hate that.
Time will tell whether Smith is a top shelf receiver coach or not. Thus far, he has done fine, IMO. 2013 will be his test with young talent and a "yet to be fully tapped" Devin Smith.
Go Zach Smith!

Urban thinks he's good, why do you need further approval than that?
,,,of the 27 offers extended to WRs this year, we already have one... coach Smith should just rest on his laurels.

2 years ago Alpha thought everything that Urban did was God, and Tressel was an idiot. I guess no one is perfect. Who would have thunk it.
At least we know with Urban that he won't keep a coach on who is not performing for a decade.
Lets revisit this topic next year when we have something to evaluate.
Cleveland Orchestra Baby!! World's greatest!! The Brown's wet dream is to be them. The Ohio State University-Where the Illibuck Lives!
this one I think would have to have a affair wife Urb's wife to get fired!!
