Accost the Field — Ep45: Two 1,000-Yard Backs?

Accost the Field Ohio State Football Podcast Ohio State Podcast


In this episode of Accost the Field, Tony Gerdeman, Tom Orr, and Shannon Sommers talk Ohio State football. And since it is an Ohio State podcast, they even touch on some basketball, specifically the commitment of 5-star forward Alonzo Gaffney, as well as the transfer of Florida State point guard C.J. Walker. The vast majority of the show, however, is about Buckeye football. This week, that means a lot of talk about cornerbacks, linebackers, and running backs, because those are the position groups that met with the media since last week’s shows. On Friday, we will preview the Ohio State Spring Game.

The Rundown

+ Opening banter.

+ Tuf Borland is the man, but is he as good as the numbers seem to suggest?

+ We’re pretty convinced the staff wants Baron Browning starting somewhere.

+ Could we see the Buckeye linebackers in some Belichickian utilization?

+ We try to pick our starting linebackers for the season opener.

+ Kendall Sheffield is ready to become the next great Buckeye corner. Maybe?

+ Is there drama going on with Damon Arnette right now?

+ Taver Johnson said they have enough for a rotation, but he hasn’t seen Jeff Okudah on the field yet.

+ Could we see Marcus Williamson on the field at nickel this season as part of the cornerback group?

+ The assumption is that Jeff Okudah is the third guy.

+ Where do we stand on Honey Buns?

+ Running back Antonio Williams has been the talk of spring football.

+ Mike Weber’s personal goal this year is 1,300 yards. Is it realistic?

+ Is the quarterback battle down to two guys now according to Weber?

+ Is Tate Martell in the mix because they are getting him ready to contribute rather than start?

+ J.K. Dobbins’ home run ability.

+ The recent history of RBs getting better at home runs from one year to the next.

+ Tony Alford wants all alpha males in his running back room.

+ It’s not Alford’s job to keep his running backs happy.

+ Where will the carries be for Master Teague this year?

+ Teague is learning graduate-level running back play right now.
