If you believed Devin Brown had as much fear of competing for a starting quarterback job at Ohio State in 2024 as Kyle McCord, he will be the first to tell you that you, "don't know sh*t."

A strong statement to start on-field preparation for the football season, for sure. Subsequently, The Eleven Dubcast this week explores Brown's confidence as he begins to take the first-team reps. Meanwhile, Will Howard seeks to shed his black stripe and a host of other potential QBs search for their own footholds in the competitive process.

Johnny and I then pivot to Buckeye men's basketball after Jake Diebler finished the end of the regular season with more conference wins than Chris Holtmann.

Additionally the Dubcast discussion also covers:

  • Ohio State has a new punter the size of Ayers Rock. A big deal or a big nothing?
  • Has Dusty May overtaken Sean Miller as the best fit for OSU head coach among the highest-profile candidates?
  • Women's basketball had an underwhelming end to the season that more than likely cost the team a top seed in the NCAA Tournament. How do Kevin McGuff's comments challenging his team compare to those Chris Holtmann made earlier this season?
  • Ask Us Anything! — writers to dubcast@elevenwarriors.com this week inquired about many topics, such as what trio of jobs would we enjoy rotating through if we had the ability to fail upwards?
  • Archie Manning opted out of EA Sports College Football 25. For what purpose?
  • Ex-Vanderbilt quarterback Mo Hasan alleges that the Italian Mafia offered him in the realm of $300,000 to fix football games while he played for the Commodores. How deep do the mob ties run in the SEC?
