Chase Young

You've probably already heard a lot about Chase Young over the past four days, but we couldn't help but talk about him some more.

After his dominant four-sack performance in Ohio State's 38-7 win over Wisconsin on Saturday, we spent plenty of time talking about the junior defensive end's greatness – and handicapping his chances of becoming the first strictly defensive player to win the Heisman Trophy – on this week's episode of Real Pod Wednesdays.

We also talk about who else impressed us in the Buckeyes' biggest win of the season to date – including Ohio State's two other Heisman candidates, Justin Fields and J.K. Dobbins – and several other hot topics, including the first batch of College Football Playoff rankings that will come next week and the NCAA's announcement on Tuesday that it is now moving forward with considering policy changes that would allow student-athletes to benefit from their name, image and likeness.

We also answered more than a dozen of your questions, including how much we expect Fields to play against Maryland and Rutgers, taking an early look ahead to Ohio State vs. Penn State and whether Chris Olave and Baron Browning should be in the starting lineup every week.
