Accost the Field Ohio State Football Podcast Ohio State Podcast


In this edition of Accost the Field, Tony Gerdeman, Tom Orr, and producer Shannon Sommers spend two hours talking about the one hour of spring practice that Tom and Tony got to see this week.

They go up and down the position groups talking about what stood out for them, as well what questions still remain. It is a jam-packed show, and they even found time to get a bunch of listener questions answered as well.
