In retrospect, we didn't really need to worry.

Justin Fields was probably always going to be granted his transfer request by the NCAA, for a whole host of reasons. Not that the NCAA always does the correct or predictable thing, but Fields had a pretty persuasive argument to begin with, and, in a macro sense, so do most players that seek to transfer. It appears that the powers-that-be are beginning to shift on this issue, which is a good thing.

Oh, and hey, look at that! Ohio State men's basketball has won three straight and is looking increasingly likely to have played themselves into the NCAA tournament. A few more wins and maybe a fortuitous upset of a ranked team and Chris Holtmann will have looked like a literal wizard (or forensics officer, I guess?) for what he was able to accomplish.

0:00 Justin Fields! We discuss what this means for both Ohio State and the NCAA at large (good for both).

14:54 Chris Holtmann is a damn good coach and it's looking like once again Gene Smith found the diamond in the sack of... less... shiny... diamonds.

31:28 Here's the other part of the Justin Fields situation: the pressure. Who has the most?

And that'll do it for this week, thanks as always for listening and checking out our Dry Goods store, thanks to Travis for the kickass logo, and we'll see you all next time.
