In this episode of Accost the Field, Tony Gerdeman and Tom Orr talk about Joe Burrow’s move to LSU. What does the Tigers’ depth chart at quarterback look like currently, and how good are Burrow’s chances of winning the job? The Ohio State quarterback situation is also a topic of discussion, as the fellas talk about where Dwayne Haskins ranks in the Big Ten quarterback pool. Scheduling is then discussed, as is the eventual end of Nick Saban’s career, which has now been set in stone. The show then turns toward the Michigan Wolverines and the way the U of M used a Buckeye dad in their recruiting materials. Charles Woodson’s comments about how the team doesn’t take the Ohio State game seriously enough are also discussed. They then review Episode 6 of ‘All or Nothing’ before turning to listener questions.
