In this episode of the Buckeye Weekly podcast, Tony Gerdeman and Tom Orr discuss this week’s conference call with Ryan Day. They talk about the lengths the Ohio State football program has gone to in order to keep the players in football shape. They also discuss the recruiting successes and why Day believes it’s happening. The fellas have a conversation about how much…

When it comes to today’s college football, almost every aspect of a player’s life is regimented. Their days start at the football facility for breakfast or workouts or meetings or practice and their nights end at the football facility with more meetings or tutoring or a late bite. In between there are classes. After, there is often somebody that just wants to go home and sleep.
Yesterday, Tom and I were taking part in a teleconference about water coolers when I mentioned to him that a better version of a water cooler would have Diet Dr. Pepper in it.

Everything under one roof with the hopes that players would spend as much time at the WHAC as possible.
Like many of you, Ohio State head football coach Ryan Day is working from home these days.

Yesterday, I was having a sip of the good stuff at the virtual water cooler when Tom stopped by to ask if we had any hand sanitizer. I told him that we did not but that simply washing your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds would keep him safe. “Eh…I’m not really a soap guy,” he said. “That’s…uh…disturbing,” I said as I took a few steps backward.
Last week we started a series on the vast differences between recruiting at Ohio State and Michigan. We took the respective recruiting rankings of every scholarship player on both rosters (as well as Penn State, who operates possibly as some kind of control group in the woods) and began comparing them against each other. But not quarterbacks vs. quarterbacks…
