So, an interesting timeline for this story. Last Wednesday OSU WR coach Zach Smith had a court date for breaking a protection order against his Ex-wife. All was quiet in the media until a random poster on 247 sports with zero posting history posted court documents on multiple team boards on the website asking why the local media wasn't reporting it. Several hours later, and caught with their pants down, a few local reports came out with quotes from Smith's lawyer saying he was more or less trapped trying to drop his kids off. LINK.
A lot more on the story broke today by former ESPN investigative reporter Brett McMurphy. Smith has had multiple arrests for domestic violence dating back to his time in Gainsville in 2009 and others while at OSU. Link.
So, this whole thing is kind of crazy. I have a hard time believing this was unknown to a lot of people. Also, if that random poster never posted the court docs in the first place it in all likelihood would have continued to be kept quiet, which is a tad troubling.
