In this episode of Accost the Field, Tony Gerdeman and Tom Orr talk Ohio State football, and in particular the transfer of Joe Burrow. How do we think the conversation went between Urban Meyer and Burrow? Where might Burrow be headed? Could the Buckeyes be looking at some grad transfers, and who might be out there. How does this impact Tate Martell’s playing time? Is Dwayne Haskins ready for what is coming his way? Listener questions are also addressed at the end of the show.
