It isn't often, but sometimes in this business I smell a little Woodward and Bernstein in the air. Usually it's for something that's dumb and will amount to a giant headache for Ohio State fans, but in this case it turned out to be something relatively cool and good.

Gene Smith and Dr. Kristina Johnson did their jobs last summer and fall, and did them well. We know that because 11W reported on it, and this week the Dubcast takes a look at the work and leadership that is revealed through that reporting. Also we dunk on Kevin Warren for a bit, because... he deserves it.

Plus, some more NIL action! Ask Us Anything (which you can do at dubcast@elevenwarriors.com) wants to know a little bit about that, and we talk about some of the implications of the NIL news of the past week.

Also I'm feeling much better. So there's that.

0:00 NIL is a funny acronym if you stop and think about it.

18:45 I know we've been gassing up Dr. Johnson and Gene for the past few weeks, but seriously, think about how much of a relief and a privilege it is for this university to have them at the helm.

34:38 All chips in on Northwestern!

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!
