Accost the Field — Ep. 44: Who’s Stepping Up This Spring?

Accost the Field Ohio State Football Podcast Ohio State Podcast


In this episode of Accost the Field, Tony Gerdeman, Tom Orr, and producer Shannon Sommers talk a whole bunch of Ohio State football. There are too many topics to mention here, but the fellas talk the Ohio State quarterbacks and whether some of them are trying to be something they aren’t. The offense being behind the defense is discussed, as are the reasons why. The talk also veers off to Greg Schiano and his ability to float from spot to spot and the impact that will have on the defense this season. There also quite a few mentions of the players who are stepping up this spring, as well as the players who aren’t, but need to. The show closes with about a dozen listener questions.
