In this episode of the Buckeye Weekly podcast, Tony Gerdeman and Tom Orr break down everything that was said by Ryan Day and his coaches and players on Tuesday, and there was a lot. First, however, they get started with some big recruiting news. They then follow that up with a discussion about what is yet to come from the OSU passing game. There is still more to come from the defense, as well, even though we have already seen plenty to like at this point.
+ Tony doesn’t know his days.
+ Let’s start with recruiting talk.
+ Who commits at 7:30 in the morning?!?
+ Reid Carrico is a good player.
+ The 2021 class is looking good.
+ The 2021 Ohio class is also looking good.
+ Tom thinks he’s a lot like Cade Stover.
+ Carrico isn’t a subtle running back.
+ He’s less subtle as a linebacker.
+ Let’s talk 2021 Ohio players.
+ Let’s talk 2019 Buckeye football.
+ Why aren’t the Buckeyes throwing the ball over the middle this year?
+ Justin Fields is taking what the defense is giving him and it’s working.
+ Every defense has something they can take away.
+ This isn’t the 2017 offense, it’s more like the 2018 offense with a quarterback who can run the ball.
+ Right now the team is focused on getting better at what they already do.
+ How do you keep a team from letting down on the road?
+ Does Jonah Jackson have too much small-game experience?
+ What is everyone’s favorite aspect of this defense.
+ Ryan Day likes the scars and the darkness.
+ We don’t know how this team will handle adversity, Day does have faith that his defense will be okay.
+ Looking forward to seeing this defense on Saturday.
+ The defense isn’t good enough to do what they want to do yet, which is interesting.
+ We will never stop talking about the 2018 defense.
+ Brendon White tells it like it is.
+ For the thousandth time.
+ This defense rallies around the ball.
+ Playing zone helps with that.
+ It must suck to be a bad defense.
+ When you’re a good defense, confidence comes naturally.
+ This is a happy defense even with half the playing time.
+ No Buckeye will be leading the Big Ten in tackles any time soon.
+ This defense has bought in and there are unique roles available to be manned.
+ The answers from the linebackers last year are much different than the answers this year.
+ Pete Werner is the most favored nation.
+ Will Pete Werner and Brendon White be the new Joe Germaine and Stanley Jackson?
+ There’s a lot to talk about with Indiana, but we’ll save that for Thursday.
+ We are like Happy Days.
+ Or at least Tony is.
