Basketball season has left us behind and we are left with spring football and then the long wretched off-season.
The end of the basketball Buckeyes' season came as mercifully and perplexing as an M. Night Shyamalan movie. And as such we are left now to wonder what the hell we just witnessed and why we bothered at all. Just kidding — a 25-win season is still not terrible. (Seriously, ask Northwestern.)
Johnny and I looked back at the season that was for the 2013-14 OSU team and like many of you we are left with far more questions than answers. We also discuss Gene Smith's hefty bonus for all the hard work that Logan Stieber did over the weekend and, like many before us, we wonder why the fruits of one man's labor ended up in another man's pocket.
Our old friend Doug Lesmerises from Cleveland.com dropped in to talk about the end of the Buckeyes' season and the eternal optimism (and question marks) of that which we call "spring football." Doug had a lot of good insights on both Thad Matta's and Urban Meyer's squads and we appreciate his thoughts, as usual.
And no Eleven Dubcast would be complete without our Ask Us Anything segment, in which you can (as the title suggests) question us about absolutely anything that's on your mind. You can do so by writing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or hit us up on Twitter.
This is your dose of the Dubcast:
And here's how it all went down:
0:25- Me and Johnny discuss the end of the OSU hoops season, the Dayton game, the NCAA tournament and Gene Smith getting $18K for Logan Stieber's ability to destroy people.
21:15- Doug Lesmerises jumps aboard to give his thoughts on Matta's and Meyer's Buckeyes, the backup quarterback race, replacing Ryan Shazier and more. Dude knows his stuff.
45:58- In our Ask Us Anything segment, we talk way too early about the 2015 recruiting class and where you should go for spring break if you are forced to stay within a six-hour drive of Columbus.
1:02:23- Spielman for president?
Programming note: We'll be back the week after the Spring Game to wrap up spring football and look ahead to the summer months. Then we'll go to our monthly off-season Dubcast schedule.
