Real Pod Wednesdays: What We're Looking Forward To Learning at Big Ten Media Days

Ryan Day

For the first time in 16 months, we finally get to interview Ryan Day and Ohio State players in person.

Day, Thayer Munford, Zach Harrison and Jeremy Ruckert will all be in Indianapolis on Friday for the second day of Big Ten Media Days, and we'll be there too to talk to them as well as other coaches and players from around the conference.

It'll be the first time Day and Ohio State players have been available for interviews in more than three months, and a lot has changed since then – players are now receiving name, image and likeness benefits, and the College Football Playoff is moving toward expansion to 12 teams – so it'll be our first opportunity to ask them about those changes, as well as how the Buckeyes are preparing for the 2021 season with just a couple of weeks to go until preseason camp.

What Dan's looking forward to most, though, is the opportunity to finally get the opportunity to ask Kevin Warren about everything that happened last year – even though we aren't expect the Big Ten commissioner to say a lot.

We tackle all of that in the first 24 minutes of this week's show, then discuss some of the questions from Colin's staff Big Ten roundtable – like when Ohio State could lose its next Big Ten game and which other Big Ten player we'd add to the Buckeyes' roster this year – and answer a five-pack of reader questions, including whether we think Ohio State's 2010 wins will be reinstated, what the interior offensive line depth chart could look like and how other great wide receivers in OSU history compare to Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson.
