In this episode of Accost the Field, Tony Gerdeman and Tom Orr give the best and worth things they saw from the Purdue game. The first part doesn’t take so long. They then get into the bigger issues at play for the Buckeyes and what Urban Meyer had to say on Tuesday about attacking those issues. Will personnel changes be in the works? Schematic adjustments? Yes to both, at least that’s what should happen. There is plenty more discussed as well.
