In the latest “Why is this News?” edition of the “Hangout in the Holy Land” podcast, co-hosts Matt Tamanini and Alexis Chassen catch up on all of the biggest Buckeye stories that from the past week.

Matt and Alexis hold off on talking about the huge football game this weekend to discuss the fact that one of the greatest basketball players in Ohio State history, the leading scorer in professional women’s basketball history, Katie Smith, was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass., last weekend.

After heaping praise on the legendary Smith, Matt and Alexis turn their attention to Saturday’s primetime football matchup between the No. 4 Ohio State Buckeyes and No. 15 TCU Horned Frogs.

While they leave the in-depth breakdown to their podcasting cohorts, Colton Denning and Patrick Mayhorn on the previous episode of Hangout in the Holy Land, Matt and Alexis talk about the motivational methods that the Buckeyes and Horned Frogs are employing for their game at AT&T Stadium.

Matt and Alexis also have differing opinions about what Dwayne Haskins will do following this season, they also make their predictions for the game, and Alexis is very optimistic about about the potential Ohio State offensive output.

Alexis also gives a quick recap of the Buckeye news from Week 1 of the NFL season. They also run through the upcoming slate of contests for other Ohio State sports.
