Podcast: Ohio State-Michigan State breakdown with Chris Vannini

There is a football game of some import happening this Saturday, so we caught up with a Spartan expert to help you get smart. Also, we talk about Super Smash Brothers and fighting giant ducks. So you're going to want to listen.

This Saturday is the day when the script can be flipped. Ohio State will get a chance to finally get that monkey off their back, and beat an elite team. College Gameday will be there. Ghosts from last year's Big Ten Championship game can be vanquished. It's the best two teams in the Big Ten, tussling in East Lansing. So naturally, we have a podcast to dig into the game in a little more detail, you help you get smart.

Joining us today is Chris Vannini, a venerable Spartans expert that has written for 247Sports, CoachingSearch, and most recently, for The Only Colors, our Michigan State site here at SB Nation. On the podcast, Chris breaks down whether this is a "rivalry" game or not, what makes this a dangerous matchup for Ohio State, what makes Tony Lippet so dang good, and what Super Smash Brothers character Connor Cook would be. At the end of the show, we briefly chat about Ohio State recruiting updates and the QB depth chart. Also, we discuss whether it's better to fight 12 duck-sized Joey Bosas, or a single Joey Bosa sized duck. That's #important #journalism.

Also, we have received your feedback about some audio issues with guest sound quality. We have changed some of our hardware over the week, and believe the problem has been resolved.
