Accost the Field — Joe Knows, But Will It Matter?

Accost the Field Ohio State Football Podcast Ohio State Podcast

In this episode of Accost the Field, Tony Gerdeman and Tom Orr take some time to wrap up spring football for the Ohio State football program. Where did things end at certain position battles and where are they headed in the offseason? Transfers are discussed and the impact that will have on the Buckeyes. Recruiting gets some mentions as well. It’s a pretty full show overall, even if we didn’t mean it to be.
