Season 2, Episode 2 of The Sons of Schmidt Podcast is now live.

This week, Brandon and Mike start the show by going more in-depth on the key position battles before fall camp, on both offense and defense. They primarily focus on the right side of the offensive line and wide receiver rotation on offense, and the defensive line rotation and defensive backs on D.

During segment three, the guys start looking more into the season. You can hear their suggestions for the best and most worrisome games on Ohio State’s schedule, along with the breakout players to watch.

The last segment of the show goes outside of Columbus. The Sons take a look at the best non-Ohio State and Big Ten games this season, and give you a couple non-Buckeyes to watch this season.
