ESPN and Ohio State are BFFs again.
Ohio State fans will get a close-up on the 2012 football season with new head coach Urban Meyer when ESPN debuts a series of All-Access specials beginning August 14 on ESPNU and additional ESPN platforms. ESPN All-Access: Ohio State Training Days will showcase the Buckeyes as they train under Ohio native (Ashtabula, Ohio) Meyer who has returned from a coaching hiatus to lead the team.
With extensive behind-the-scenes access to on- and off-field play, team meetings and campus facilities, ESPN cameras will introduce players and coaches as they complete grueling pre-season training across six days. Viewers will see four, 30-minute specials on ESPNU (August 14-17), a five-part series across College Football Live Presented by Dick’s Sports Goods and SportsCenter (August 19-24) and a one-hour special on ESPN (August 22).
Lee Fitting, ESPN senior coordinating producer, said, “Anytime we can provide behind-the-scenes access inside one of the traditional power programs, it's a treat for the viewers and the fans. Urban Meyer's success at Florida and the unique story lines surrounding the Ohio State program will add to the intrigue of this series."
