Preseason camp gave us plenty of talk about, our listeners gave us plenty of questions to answer and we shared some show news on this week's Real Pod Wednesdays.

First up, we react to an interesting day at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center on Tuesday, where we learned that Ohio State is moving toward making some major changes on the offensive line. Does it actually make sense for Thayer Munford and Nicholas Petit-Frere to change positions? Although we were skeptical initially, we're buying that the new-look offensive line can be a dominant unit, and we explain why.

Tuesday's practice also gave us our best look yet at the quarterback competition, as we got to see the quarterbacks throw deep balls and attempt passes with wide receivers going one-on-one against defensive backs, and we explain why (beginning at 17:22) what we saw strengthens our belief that C.J. Stroud will be the starting quarterback – but also that Kyle McCord has separated from Jack Miller in the competition.

We also discuss why we still have a lot of uncertainty about the defensive back seven (23:00), and answer more than a dozen questions from our listeners, including whether Jaxon Smith-Njigba is being overlooked, how Jack Sawyer and J.T. Tuimoloau look physically and which two schools we would add to the Big Ten.

Finally (59:47), Dan makes Colin answer a couple of additional questions and Colin makes a bold prediction on his way out after revealing that this will be his final episode of Real Pod Wednesdays (which will continue on with Dan and a new co-host to be named later).
