Buckeye Weekly Podcast: The Next Malik Hooker?

Buckeye Weekly Ohio State Football Buckeyes Podcast

In this episode of the Buckeye Weekly podcast, Tony Gerdeman and Tom Orr talk defensive backs and wide receivers. Why are the Buckeyes forcing so many turnovers in camp and who has forced more turnovers than anybody else so far? The receivers are discussed, including keeping Garrett Wilson grounded and keeping defenses guessing. Jonathon Cooper is also a topic of discussion. All of this and much more.

The Rundown

+ Backed by modern music, which is nice.

+ We talked to the secondary and the receivers.

+ Tom and I are listeners just like you!

+ An honor and a thrill.

+ Our quality has increased.

+ What have we learned today?

+ A name that is never a surprise when it comes up.

+ Why is this team forcing more turnovers?

+ Who is leading the camp in interceptions?

+ Security!

+ Let’s fire up the Josh Proctor hype train.

+ Damon Arnette makes a remarkable comparison for Josh Proctor.

+ How often can Proctor get on the field this year?

+ Jeff Hafley is going to play the guys who have earned it.

+ But he’s in a depth chart that contains Jordan Fuller.

+ What is Josh Proctor missing?

+ What are they saying about Proctor?

+ There are so many available parts to this defense, and Proctor is just another piece.

+ Let’s talk Bullet.

+ Less safety and more linebacker.

+ When will we see the Bullet vs. the Sam?

+ There is a preface.

+ What is the preface?

+ Well, it depends.

+ On what?

+ No, that’s the preface.

+ Is there less safety happening for the Bullet because of Josh Proctor and Isaiah Pryor?

+ Difficult to get a depth chart outta anybody.

+ Brendon White views it as a linebacker position.

+ Brendon White was recruited to play linebacker.

+ Comparing this to Michigan’s “Vipers” over the last three years.

+ It’s a lot to ask a guy to be a linebacker on first and second down, then be a safety on third down.

+ Let’s talk about the Jonathon Cooper rumors.

+ Ohio State isn’t confirming anything.

+ Injuries do not get talked about.

+ Jashon Cornell needs to stay inside.

+ You recruited talent for a reason.

+ What about holding Cooper back for the final four games of the season and letting him play in those games and then redshirt him if he wants?

+ That’s up to Coop and his health, which has not been confirmed to be a thing that exists.

+ The defensive backs love this defense.

+ They can play with a clear mind.

+ The Silver Bullets are back.

+ So are the Blackshirts!

+ If you have a talent advantage, use it.

+ There are actual results causing this talk right now.

+ Getting that split second back is big.

+ Just as Tom said, it’s all gonna be a disaster.

+ This is the time for optimism.

+ How does Rutgers measure success?

+ We didn’t talk to Chris Olave. Sorry.

+ What was the injury update on Austin Mack?

+ Damon Arnette was wearing a cast on his right wrist, but he’s fine.

+ Maybe it’s just fashion.

+ Tom makes a timely office supply reference.

+ Keeping Garrett Wilson in check.

+ Can Brian Hartline keep Wilson out of the Top 6 by October or November?

+ They could play more than the normal six tho.

+ Especially early in the season.

+ Turn out the lights.

+ Kicker update?

+ Of course the only other person in the building interrupts the show.

+ Finishing with a train wreck.
