One of the unforeseen impacts of the transfer portal and NIL on college football is that in addition to creating a bona fide free agent market, it has also accelerated the traditional storylines of college football in a way that pushes even something like a national championship way, way into the review mirror almost as soon as they happen.

Case in point: Nick Saban's retirement. Obviously that was going to have huge knock-on effects throughout college football no matter when it happened, but given the subsequent coaching changes and player transfers and decommitments, it could easily be argued that Saban's decision had more of an impact on the landscape of college football than any single game ever could.

Ohio State, for its part, has decided that the best way to ride out this craziness is to stick with the guys that have been manning the sails for the past several years, and damn, pretty much everyone is back! Henderson, Tuimoloau, Sawyer, Egbuka, Burke, Hancock, Jackson, and on and on and holy crap, this might just be the most talented roster in the country, right? Seesh!

So George and I get into that, some other OSU coaching changes, new Athletic Director Ross "Dancer in the Dark" Bjork, and share some C.J. Stroud love.

  • I mean, seriously: it is wild how much Ohio State is getting back on the field in 2024. Brotherhood, indeed
  • Adios, Parker Fleming
  • Men's Basketball is bad in January, quelle surprise
  • Ask Us Anything - which you can do at dubcast@elevenwarriors.com - wants to know our grocery store impulse buys. I like cheap shrimp.
  • Nick Saban's long shadow alters the college football landscape simply by way of his absence
  • Bjork bjork bjork bjork
  • C.J. rules, the end. I have no pity for Browns fans

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