NCAA Football: Indiana at Ohio State Joe Maiorana-USA TODAY Sports

Despite Ohio State’s 38-17 win over Indiana on Saturday, many Buckeye fans are asking themselves some familiar questions: Why didn’t Carlos Hyde Ezekiel Elliott Curtis Samuel/Mike Weber get the ball more, and what is up with the Buckeyes’ passing game?

It’s an ultimate first world college football problem to have — Especially when your team wins by three touchdowns — but two issues that have nonetheless reared their head at times the past four seasons.

On this week’s podcast, Matt Brown and Colton Denning discuss those issues, and talk all things Ohio State - Indiana, including:

  • Why it’s OK to be frustrated with the passing game, but still happy with the direction the offense is heading in
  • Getting Curtis Samuel and Mike Weber more involved
  • Giving the Buckeyes’ dominant defense and special teams their due praise

The guys also preview this week’s game versus Wisconsin, why they think the Buckeyes will win comfortably, discuss a new commitment for Ohio State basketball, and look ahead to week seven’s slate of games.
