Again, he is assuming that Zack was arrested, based on what McMurphy wrote. When as far as he knew he wasn't. In the end, the investigation will determine Urban's fate and weather or not he did what he was supposed to do. If he did in fact lie to the media, about something that really isn't their business in the first place, then so be it. Smith should have been fired a long time ago, not because of his private life but because the receivers were terrible, and his tweets where beyond immature.

Neopolitan,
McMurphy's Do Not Compete is fulfilled tomorrow I believe. He'll begin his new job on Monday. Wouldn't really call his career on life support but you go ahead and believe whatever you want.
We are seeing the same exact trend with you and some others, but on the opposite side

Now they’re reporting that Smith was arrested in 2013 for OVI.

All the anecdotal stuff, so far, makes it sound like he and the wife were drunks and did a lot of fighting. Feel bad for the kids.

I do feel bad for the kids in this entire situation. They might not understand it right now but at some point they'll become aware.

The OVI arrest just adds another ring to this growing circus. It will be questioned if Urban told his bosses about that event as well (if Zach even told him). Based on the portion of Zach's contract that was with the article one could assume it could've been a fireable offense. Perhaps everyone knew and Zach was placed in some type of program. If nothing else it seems it was at least another red flag.

I really hope that the reporter that "broke" the OVI charge was looking both ways. Nothing says a hatchet job like having two crazy people and the reporter is only looking at the crazy on one side.

When reporters pick the winners and losers, everyone becomes a loser.

WinstonSmith has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Everything reported so far says Smith never told Urban or anyone else at OSU about the OVI.

He reported the entire case from start to finish. Hard to say he didn't report it fairly. Zach reporting that he never told Urban or anyone else at OSU is obviously a sigh of relief for tOSU though I'm sure they'll still investigate it.

This past weekend Zach Smith's attorney stated he was set to meet with investigators and would ask for his job back. He can go ahead and skip the whole job thing now, and his credibility has taken a very large hit.
