This week's episode of Real Pod Wednesdays is highlighted by our second annual Ohio State Football Team Draft.
Starting at about the 28-minute mark of this week's episode, we took turns drafting players from Ohio State's 2020 football roster to form dueling 22-man lineups (which you can read more about and vote on here) with the goal of building the best possible lineup to win a football game this fall. Listen in to hear the back-and-forth banter as we make our selections live on the show, explain why we made our picks and react – sometimes in dismay – at each other's selections.
First, though, we kicked off this week's episode by discussing our takeaways from Ohio State's most recent press conferences, including what we make of Justin Fields' new vegan diet, the potential 50/50 split at running back between Trey Sermon and Master Teague and why this year's wide receiver rotation could end up including as many as three true freshmen.
As always, we close out the show with Three Things We Think (1:01:40) – including why Ty Hamilton could make an immediate impact at defensive tackle, why we're talking about Demario McCall yet again and why there might actually be a small margin for error for Ohio State to make the College Football Playoff – and by answering your reader questions (1:17:02) on whether any Big Ten team can stay competitive with the Buckeyes, how confident you should be that Ohio State will make it to the national championship game and more.
