Sons of Schmidt – Episode 5

Sons of Schmidt Ohio State Football Podcast Ohio State Podcast

It is travel day for The Sons of Schmidt this week. Brandon and Mike check in on Ohio State’s fall camp, and then take a look beyond the Columbus city limits at the rest of the 2017 college football landscape this week. This is episode 5 of the second season of The Sons of Schmidt Podcast.

To start the show, the guys take a look at the updates on the right guard starter and who will be taking the first snaps at wide receiver. And they clarify that, as much as we are loving J.K. Dobbins this fall, who will be the starting running back for Ohio State.

The SoS guys then spend the second segment looking at their predictions for the other Power 5 conference division and championship winners. They go west to east, and even manage to talk SEC football.

We spend segment three looking forward to, and making our way-too-early selections for the College Football Playoffs. Spoiler: Expect to hear Ohio State being named here.

The Francis Schmidt Award Show takes over segment four. The guys make a preseason Heisman Trophy pick, name and defend their over/underrated conference selections, and give out their preseason All American Skill Position awards on offense.
