In this episode of the Buckeye Weekly podcast, Tony Gerdeman and Tom Orr recap Tuesday’s media availability with Ohio State head coach Ryan Day, as well as players Jeff Okudah, BB Landers, and Justin Fields. The Heisman was a topic of conversation, even if nobody at Ohio State cared to discuss it. Ryan Day seems upbeat about running back recruiting, so they talk about that as well. All of this and much, much more.
