Accost the Field — Episode 41: The Latest in the Quarterback Race

Accost the Field Ohio State Football Podcast Ohio State Podcast


In this episode of Accost the Field, the fellas talk quite a bit about the Ohio State quarterback situation. Included in the discussion are thoughts on Joe Burrow’s annoyance at people assuming he’s going to be the one leaving. The show also features the five traits that Urban Meyer is looking for in his quarterbacks, and which current quarterback that might favor. The linebackers are also a topic, as is the injury to starting middle linebacker Tuf Borland.

It’s the first of two shows this week and it’s pretty jam packed with Ohio State football goodness. Friday’s show will feature more stuff from practice and interviews. We’ll be talking Alex Grinch and the safeties, a floating Greg Schiano, more touches for the H-backs, a couple of random topics, and then listener questions.

If you listen via iTunes, we’d appreciate your review. Thanks.
