We've been pretty lucky on the Dubcast in terms of guests, but this week Andy and I are psyched even more than usual. That's because we've got Ohio State president Dr. Kristina Johnson on to talk with us about her goals for the university, how she sees the future of college sports, and specifically how all of that fits into the land-grant mission of a place we all know and love. She has already made her mark at Ohio State in a number of really important ways, but if she's able to deliver on her long-term goals (such as allowing students to graduate debt-free), Dr. Johnson will be remembered as one of the most significant presidents in OSU history.

That's a big "if," but as she emphasizes, you gotta dream big to make big changes. It's a really fun, interesting interview, and I recommend that you check it out.

But of course, that's not all! We're just as befuddled as you are about Ohio State's early exit from March Madness, and we get into that, along with a great Ask Us Anything question (which you can help contribute to by sending us a question to dubcast@elevenwarriors.com)!

0:00 More like March Sadness, am I right? Am I right?? How can Holtmann get his team to the next level (of the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament)?

41:37 Dr. Johnson was extremely gracious with her very limited time, and we hope that we can have her back on soon!

54:41 Yeah, it's still a football school.

And that'll do it, thanks as always to Travis for the logo, thanks to you for listening and checking out the Dry Goods store, and we'll see you next week!
