    An interesting take on Coach Stud. I know he gets a lot of heat from the fans, but this vid suggests that that heat should be spread around. And the OL coach job is harder than we can imagine.

    Regardless of what some think of Zach Smith, he does have an insider's view of coaching at a very high. And the info fro, Kirk Barton is awesome too

    I can't believe I'm saying this, but I learn more about football from Zach Smith than from anyone else save maybe Pat Kirwan.

    I feel dirty now. Have to take a shower. :so:

    Concur with all of the above, that was done really insightful commentary and honestly pretty hilarious. Might have to tune into more of that.

    But I do think Stud has got wayyyy too much criticism. The OL is the deepest we've ever seen here, or at least in my lifetime. We talk about all the "misses" in recruiting, but how about the misses that led that Thayer Munford, who could very likely be a first round pick? Bowen? Elflein? Price? Not that those guys were really low ranked (aside from Elflein), but the point is he's developed some great players that recruitniks didn't consider elite guys. That's really just the tip of the iceberg that Smith brought up but I have to agree that all things considered, Stud is doing a damn good job and that's coming from a guy that has been less than glowing about him in the past.

    Zach was a high level coach for a while, so he knows his stuff. He can sometimes be immature and foolish, but he has connections, and speaks from what he knows. I like a number of videos on OSU and especially CFB recruiting(the Torrance Gibson story is now almost a thing of legend).

    I think the way that Smith left OSU, left a lot of OSU fans quite bitter. But his podcast has actually been REALLY good(save the first few episodes where he spent 20+min ragging on his ex wife). Like I said, his recruiting and coaching stories about guys like Torrance Gibson, Duron Carter, Tate Martell, Percy Harvin, South FL in general are great listens!
    The main criticism of Stud is on OTs, and the guys you mentioned feed into the discussion about him, because they're all IOL(except Munford). He has done great with the interior, and it seems like he's lucked out with the OTs. But like Smith/Barton said, he has to keep tabs on arguably the most guys in his room on the team. Watch their weight, as well as grades. He has done an admirable job, but at a place like OSU, your fanbase is never satisfied(case in point that Bama fans thought Saban was done after 2019 :confused:)

    Some of the misses at OT on the recruiting trail have been disappointing, but for Stud to still produce at the position even when fitting some squares into round holes until lately has been impressive. I think you were sort of getting at that but I think you're finally seeing a Stud OL when it's got elite tackles and depth across the board. To be able to replace the majority of our OL in the MSU game last year and not miss a beat was one of the better coaching performances I've ever seen. I'm really looking forward to what an OL of Munford-PJJ-Jones/Wypler-Miller-NPF does this season (and add in Dawand as the next man up, sounding like Fryar can play too).

    Yeah, I think we expected to pull out an MSU win, but not to utterly dominate at the LOS with mostly backups!

    Stud gets a lot of criticism, but when it’s all said and done, all 5 starters on the OLine this year will play in the NFL. Josh Myers and Wyatt Davis were both drafted off of last year’s team. He’s also coached Billy Price, Michael Jordan, Jonah Jackson, Jamarco Jones, and Pat Elflein.

    Reading the reports coming out of camp, guys like Fryar, Matt Jones, Wyler, and Vimahi are all in the mix to start. That means next year’s OLine should be really good, as well! Especially with Paris bumping out to Tackle and if Dawand returns.

    So I think it’s time we all show Stud some appreciation! He’s done a fantastic job!

    Day said offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson and graduate assistant Kennedy Cook both took on more responsibilities while Studrawa was gone, but that

    “Stud was still watching the film from the surgery bed, and we had the golf cart driving him around practice when we could recently. But yeah, Kevin kind of stepped in and controlled all that, and then Kennedy – his graduate assistant – did a great job during that time," Day said. "But great to get him back in the building, he was certainly missed when he wasn’t here."

    soo… Aggy just lost their OL coach… and Aggy friend goes “tell me about Greg Studwara”. My response was righteous indignation that anyone of Stud’s caliber would leave
