Accost the Field — Episode 43: Why Hasn’t a QB Stepped Up Yet?

Accost the Field Ohio State Football Podcast Ohio State Podcast

In this episode of Accost the Field, the guys talk Ohio State football and nothing but Ohio State football. Starting middle linebacker Tuf Borland is out until September, so what happens in the meantime? Nobody has stepped up at quarterback just yet. Are there legitimate reasons why? The offensive line is in a flux right now, but the pieces are coming together. There is plenty more discussed on the show as well. There will be another show on Friday featuring tidbits from Urban Meyer, leadership issues, listener questions, and much, much more.
