OK, it is the offseason, so here is the weird item of the day.
Zach Smith, the controversial, fired and at one-time arrested former Ohio State assistant coach, has a podcast (like everyone else these days).
And he claims USC has contacted former Ohio State coach Urban Meyer.
Not through a third party.
Not through his agent.
Not via a text message.
Not through Matt Leinart and Reggie Bush.
But by “certified mail.”
“Someone that I know. That works in the United States Postal Service dropped a bomb on me last week. He tells me that Urban Meyer, his address, his house, has had certified mail delivered to and sent from to the University of Southern California. I’m talking several letters,” Smith said. “It’s a decent source.”
Do I believe this? No. But like I said, it is the offseason.
The podcast is here.
