Johnny rejoices for Illibuck, while George weeps in memory of an annual James Franklin bashing.

Off the news that the Big Ten will be gradually moving away from its long-standing divisional structure and only ensure guaranteed scheduling for select matchups, The Eleven Dubcast examines how these developments will affect Ohio State football in the regular season and the College Football Playoff picture.

The conversation then shifts to how these recent moves stack up relative to statements from figures such as Gene Smith that the conference has satisfied its realignment and expansion ambitions for now. Johnny pitches some west coast candidates for schools that could be next up for the B1G, while George reminds the Midwestern audience of a stubborn local option already attached at the hip with NBC.

This week, the Dubcast discussion will also cover:

  • The recent report detailing over 300 incidents of campus traffic citations — mostly speeding violations — from the University of Georgia's football team.
  • Ask Us Anything! — writers to dubcast@elevenwarriors.com this week asked about the most obscure items we have found from art vendors, our favorite colors, and more!
  • Brian Hartline's acknowledgement of transfer portal realities relative to the talent he has recruited to Ohio State.

Last but certainly not least, the Dubcast offers our condolences and sympathies to the family of former Ohio State baseball captain and two-time sports Emmy winner: Kyle Brown.
