In this episode of the Buckeye Weekly podcast, Tony Gerdeman and Tom Orr tackle the second spring practice for the Buckeyes. It was a better day for the quarterbacks, as expected. The fellas also talk about the OSU secondary thanks to a key position change. The Buckeyes going back under center is talked about, as is OSU center Kaleb Wesson being back from suspension. All of this and much, much more.
