In this episode of the Buckeye Weekly Podcast, Tony Gerdeman and Tom Orr talk about the week that was in Ohio State football. Five-star recruit Zach Harrison will be making his decision next week, so the importance of that decision starts the show. The fellas then spend a good amount of time on Michigan’s Chase Winovich calling the current state of The Rivalry “a mirage.” Coaching staff shakeup is also discussed and plenty of listener questions are answered.
