The dog days of the college football off-season might be here but that doesn’t mean the news stops completely. There’s always something going on, especially in the era of the transfer portal. Speaking of that newfangled contraption, there was plenty of news in both directions where Ohio State was concerned since our last show. That includes Tyreke Johnson’s entrance into said transfer portal, Max Wray’s emergence from it at Colorado, and Henry To’o To’o’s rerouting away from Columbus to Alabama from his point of origin at Tennessee. Chip Minnich and I dive into what it all means and how it affects the Buckeyes.
While most of the transfer news sounds somewhere along the boundary between neutral and bad, there was plenty of positive news recently as well. We discuss CJ Saunders’ opportunity to attend an NFL minicamp with the Atlanta Falcons, a lot of money heading into Josh Myers’ bank account after he signed with the Green Bay Packers, and a new book from former Buckeye Nate Ebner. If you’re the reading type, his new book Finishing Strong: A Father’s Code and a Son’s Path might be up your alley. Nate writes about his life, including walking on at Ohio State, winning Super Bowls and going to the Olympics with the U.S. rugby team.
We also touched on the new PAC-12 commissioner and how that conference likes to follow the B1G’s lead. If George Kliavkoff is anything like Kevin Warren, it might be a bumpy start for the After Dark league.
Enjoy this week’s show. Thanks for listening.
