Does Ohio State Football Have A Player Leadership Issue?

The 2021 Ohio State football team has had an up-and-down first month of the season.

They started with an impressive road win at Minnesota, then had a disappointing home loss to Oregon and a flat performance against Tulsa, before rebounding for a big win over Akron.

Is a lack of leadership among the players on the team part of the issue? That was a big topic of conversation during interviews with OSU players and coaches on Tuesday. But the Buckeyes say they see encouraging signs on that front.

Buckeye Scoop’s Kevin Noon joins host Tom Orr to discuss the issues with leadership, including:

  • The quarterbacks being both young and inexperienced
  • Several returning veterans sitting out with injuries
  • The emergence of a number of surprising freshman contributors

Most definitely there is a lack of leadership on this team....
I’m hoping with the emergence of Tre’von on Offense and Ransom on defense that those two will also rise up as leaders.
