After watching Ohio State's first practice of 2020 on Monday, we break it all down for you on this week's Real Pod Wednesdays.

First, we start this week's show by talking about the impact of Master Teague's injury, following Tuesday's news that the Buckeyes' presumptive starter at running back will be unavailable for at least the rest of the spring. Can Steele Chambers and Demario McCall step up in his absence, will the Buckeyes look to add another running back through the transfer portal and how can Ohio State can make up for the position being a potential weakness? We discuss that all.

After that, we get into our biggest takeaways from Monday's opening spring practice, including how much the wide receivers impressed us, why Paris Johnson Jr. could make a legitimate run at the starting right tackle job as a true freshman and the question marks that still pervade through the secondary.

Following our conversation about spring football, we run through some of the other topics of the past week, including the proposed rule changes that could come to college football in 2020, Ryan Day's new contract extension, how the Buckeyes fared at the NFL Scouting Combine and the continued late-season surge for the Ohio State basketball team.
