After bringing in our first guest on last week's episode of Real Pod Wednesdays, we decided to make it two this week.

As we continue looking ahead to Ohio State's College Football Playoff semifinal showdown with Clemson on Dec. 28, we're joined this week by Eleven Warriors' own Kyle Jones and 105.5 The Roar's Brad Senkiw to get their insight on how the Buckeyes could match up with the Tigers.

In Kyle's first appearance on the show (which we certainly don't expect to be his last), he spends about 40 minutes with us (beginning around 24:30) to talk about some of what the Buckeyes have done schematically this year, answer your questions about X's and O's and share some of his thoughts on how Ohio State could stack up against Clemson after studying both teams' film.

Brad, who has covered Clemson since the beginning of its current run of excellence under Dabo Swinney, joins the show immediately following Kyle to give us an expert's look at just how good Clemson actually is this year, where the Tigers could be vulnerable against the Buckeyes and why he believes this will be a very different game than the 31-0 game in 2016.

Before we bring in our guests, Dan and Colin start this week's show by discussing the impact of Jeff Hafley's departure to become the head coach at Boston College, and how Ohio State will move forward as it looks for a new co-defensive coordinator and secondary coach.

After our interviews with Kyle and Brad, we wrap up the show by discussing which Ohio State award candidates actually should be considered snubs, what happened in the Ohio State men's basketball team's loss to Minnesota and answering a few additional questions from our listeners.
