In this episode of the Buckeye Weekly podcast, Tony Gerdeman and Tom Orr go over the latest batch of interviews with the Ohio State Buckeyes. After having conversations with the running backs, linebackers, tight ends, and their respective coaches, there is plenty to talk about. The linebackers, in particular, have earned a lot of praise. All three positions are discussed in depth and a plan has been put in place to get almost all of them on the field this year.
+ This is a live show.
+ Talked to the linebackers, running backs, and tight ends.
+ What did we learn today?
+ Demario McCall is the backup running back.
+ What did Demario have to do to get the nod?
+ Demario ain’t a big dude.
+ Dealing with defensive ends ain’t easy.
+ Marcus Crowley would be the No. 3 running back right now.
+ Master Teague hasn’t been healthy.
+ Is this Tony Alford’s deepest group of running backs?
+ Who is the fastest running back on the team?

+ Master Teague has run some 4.3s, so we know he’s fast.
+ Teague is also the biggest. Not a bad combo if healthy.
+ Big, fast RBs who can run through tackles?
+ Why aren’t Master Teague and Marcus Crowley getting the proper attention?
+ Just a little bit more on Josh Proctor again.
+ Al Washington loves Tuf Borland, you want to fight about it?
+ Expectations for Tuf are high.
+ What is more likely, loudmouth jerks on Twitter are right about Borland, or the coaches?
+ Al Washington likes Pete Werner and Baron Browning too.
+ Baron Browning has impressive smarts.
+ Ohio State’s defense as modifications rather than schemes.
+ Mike and Will are interchangeable.
+ How is more options simpler?
+ OSU can show anything on defense without tipping their hand.
+ Tony Alford’s first word on the defense: Fast.
+ The most athletic defense in school history?
+ Can these guys on defense be happy with playing so few snaps?
+ There is pressure on Jeff Hafley to get this right.
+ It starts with the culture.
+ Tom’s favorite thing.
+ This is a deep, deep group of tight ends.
+ They are all veterans now.
+ Jake Hausmann is the forgotten guy.
+ Maybe there are two different kinds of tight ends on this team?
+ When you have two tight ends on the field, you may not have an H.
+ Everybody has to know the concepts.
+ Jeremy Ruckert is doing well.
+ The optimism is noticeably high with the coaches and players.
