With the recent news of Ohio State and TCU scrapping their home and home series in favor of a rare neutral-site game in 2018, and the addition of two games versus the Washington Huskies, the Buckeyes’ non-conference schedules are mostly set into the near future.
On this edition of The Hangout in the Holyland, Matt Brown and Colton Denning EMBRACE DEBATE™ about the Buckeyes future non-conference schedules, and whether they think the choice to play a neutral site game was a good one. They also have thoughts on scheduling group of 5 opponents, playing in-state schools, if the atmosphere in The Shoe is lacking (!), and whether they like the idea of a series versus BYU with the Buckeyes travelling to Las Vegas to play at the proposed new Las Vegas Raiders stadium.
The guys also open up the mailbag and answer your questions, including whether Tate Martell could potentially start at quarterback in 2018, why people hoping for a quarterback competition this season need to let it go, and why you should watch Ohio State lacrosse on their journey towards a national championship.
Lastly, they discuss the NFL Draft and the best fits for former Buckeyes, and how the football program has been able to establish bonds with teams like the New Orleans Saints and Pittsburgh Steelers (good franchises) yet not with the Cleveland Browns and Jacksonville Jaguars (bad franchises).
