Without a game to break down, there was still a surprising amount of Ohio State football news to discuss on this week’s show, including wide receiver Mookie Cooper entering the transfer portal. Given the haul of talent at the wide receiver position last year, it was almost inevitable that at least one player would end up changing schools at some point.

We talked about Ohio State’s All-American selections. Voters who should see more of Haskell Garrett somehow thought less of his 2020 renaissance than those across the country. We’re just happy for him, given all he’s been through.

Dwayne Haskins was released by Washington. What does it mean for the former OSU star quarterback? Where might he land next? Is this actually a good thing for him in the long run? Haskins certainly has talent but with only one year as a college starter, perhaps more patience and development is needed. He could end up being a steal for an NFL team willing to work with him and sometimes a little adversity at the start of a career can be a good thing.

Urban Meyer was back in the news as NFL teams have shown some interest in securing his services. Should Meyer try his hand at the pro game? Does he even want to? If his stress-related health issues are still present, coaching an NFL team isn’t likely to change that, but the lure of the challenge could be too much to pass up, even if it ends up only being a one-year experiment.

Finally, we take an in-depth look at the Clemson Tigers on both sides of the ball. The Buckeyes will need to be at their best — a best we have yet to see in 2020 — to finally get over the hump and beat Dabo Swinney’s team. Will the revenge factor be enough? How can Ohio State slow down Clemson’s offense? Will Chris Olave’s return be enough to turn the offense back on? We discuss all of that and provide our final thoughts and predictions as well.
