In this episode of the Buckeye Weekly podcast, Tony Gerdeman and Tom Orr revisit the Michigan game and wonder why the Wolverines were so darn helpful. They also have a discussion about Urban Meyer’s future. The show eventually gets to Northwestern and the B1G Championship Game before closing with listener questions.
