In this episode of Accost the Field, we begin the show with basketball talk and Ohio State’s win over Indiana. Can the Hoosiers and the Buckeyes become a great rivalry again? We also discuss the amazing growth of C.J. Jackson in just one season. We then wonder if Buckeye fans are finally okay with missing out on Archie Miller and having to settle for Chris Holtmann. Then the talk turns to football and the departure of cornerbacks coach Kerry Coombs. What does this mean for the Buckeyes moving forward? We then discuss the proposed NCAA rule that would allow players to transfer with immediate eligibility upon the firing or departure of a head coach. Then we end the show with some recruiting talk, such as final targets, official visits, and how much room there isn’t.
