Chris Holtmann joins us on this week's episode of Real Pod Wednesdays to discuss Ohio State basketball and much more.

In a 45-minute interview with Ohio State's men's basketball coach, which leads off this week's show, we cover a wide variety of topics including the potential impact of name, image and likeness benefits on college sports, the importance of mental health resources for student-athletes and his expectations for next season's Buckeyes.

Our interview with Holtmann also includes his thoughts on Tiger King, his favorite restaurants in Columbus, how Ohio State makes scheduling decisions, which player he'd call to change a flat tire (that answer won't surprise you) and how he smoothed things over with Maryland coach Mark Turgeon in a postseason conversation after their in-season rift.

Then, in the second half of this week's show, we delve further into the topic of how name, image and likeness benefits could change college sports, why they'll likely be a net positive for Ohio State and which current and future Buckeyes could have the most earnings potential as brand marketers.
