Eleven Dubcast: 2012 Season Preview

By Johnny Ginter on August 22, 2012 at 1:00p

Hey! Look at that! With football right around the corner, it's time for the annual Dubcast season preview. Join Sarah and me as we go into extreme (and some would say, intimate) detail about not only each unit of the team, but also each upcoming game that your Ohio State Buckeyes will play in the 2012 season. I also force Sarah to make weird TV analogies throughout the entirety of the latter, which I feel was a pretty slick (read: douchey but funny) move on my part.

Anyway, come for the predictions, stay for the decidedly low-fi interview with 11W's own Kyle Rowland, as he gives his insight on a variety of topics about the upcoming season. Sorry about the audio in that segment; things got a little hairy but I promise you it is some pretty great content.

Oh, and Ask Us Anything rolls on, don't forget to send us your questions about life, the universe, and everything to elevendubcast@gmail.com.

I know you're excited but please do not do this to your dog

0:23- Sarah and I break down the 2012 Ohio State Buckeyes, unit by unit, until we get some answers! You're a loose cannon, Urban Meyer. I should have your badge right now. But dammit, you get results.

26:40- Kyle Rowland stops by to give us an interview that is tin can quality at best in terms of audio, but definitely iPhone 5-esque in terms of content. Surprises, disappointments, predictions, and overall impressions of the football team abound.

40:40- Ask Us Anything, and then we break down the 2012 season, game by game, and also relate each experience to a TV show. Because really, what is life but a series of episodes where the tragic is meshed with the comic in a delicious stew we call reruns? What I'm saying is, television rules.

Music for the Dubcast this week was "It's OK" by everybody's brother Cee Lo Green, "Thirty Days In The Hole" by Humble Pie, and "What Makes A Good Man?" by The Heavy (who I'm going to see on Friday holla at me).

And that's it! We're in the home stretch of the offseason, ladies and gentlemen. Hold on to your butts.

If you're going to dress a dog up..do it right. This is my shiba, Scars (Scarlet), decked out in her official Nike Stoneburner jersey. This was a few seasons ago,..passed out after a buckeye victory like the rest of us, she goes hard on gamedays...

That has to be the least comfortable sleeping position of all time. Dogs are the best.

7 yards and a cloud of dust is a beautiful thing

Kyle tells us to temper our expectations... then immediately predicts Ohio State will go 10-2
well alright!

I guess I see what you are saying there. Basically, I'm saying get the undefeated talk out of your head and expect some sloppy play at times, especially early in the season. Also, I envision a loss to someone OSU has no business losing to (think Purdue 2009 and 2011). That kind of stuff usually riles the fanbase up. 

But at the end of the day, I think it will be a very successful Year 1 under Urban, with great stuff lying ahead.

I liked your predictions, Kyle.  Our Big Ten schedule is about as tough as it can be with Michigan State and Nebraska from the Legends.    Add in Purdue's successes and Illinois's success in the Horseshoe, hell I'd even worry that 3-losses is more likely.  Just too many question marks on both sides of the ball to think that they'd go out there and be able to win big.

I love listening to your dubcasts. Great job, and I'm looking forward to then next season.
