The Rundown

+ There will be some uncomfortable conversations this week.

+ What’s up with Brendon White?

+ We’ll tell you.

+ Brendon White is a vacation home.

+ How is our podcast schedule the exact same as OSU’s mowing schedule?

+ Does this defense have room for two safeties?

+ Maybe next year.

+ Oh no, what will this secondary look like next year?

+ What will this defense look like next year if there is no third corner good enough to start?

+ Ryan Day addresses the NFL rumors as you would expect.

+ Ain’t no way Day is leaving Ohio State for Daniel Snyder’s football team.

+ It’s not just the coach who is affected by these coaching moves.

+ Happy wife, happy life. Unhappy wife…you know the rest.

+ He doesn’t sound interested in moving any time soon.

+ Ryan Day says the special teams are pretty good, but could be better in the return game.

+ If only Ohio State had somebody on their roster who could return punts.

+ This is the week to nitpick!

+ Kickoff returns are almost dead in college football.

+ Let’s talk about Zach Harrison again!

+ Tony thought Zach Harrison played more than he did on Saturday.

+ That tells you just how effective he was when he was out there.

+ He’s ahead of expectations, which isn’t a surprise.

+ He has the character to carry his skill set very, very high.

+ Overlapping 5-star defensive end prospects has proven productive.

+ Kevin Wilson uses JT Barrett as a model for quarterback evaluation.

+ Wilson didn’t know what to think of Justin Fields as a worker and preparer.

+ He thinks Fields is strong in that area now that he’s been around him.

+ Players like Justin Fields and have no problem following him right now.

+ Tom trots out an OL stat measure that says OSU is doing well on offense.

+ Justin Fields is Pandora’s box for the defense.

+ Assistant coaches and their responsibility in making Ryan Day comfortable with every play on the call sheet.
