When you have as much talent as Ohio State does, sometimes it’s hard for everyone to see the field. Players who were among the best in the country in high school regularly sit the bench for the Buckeyes— especially in big-time games like against TCU last week— working hard for their opportunity to get in on the action. We’re going to see how a lot of those players look against Tulane on Saturday.
On this Episode of the Hangout in the Holy Land, Patrick Mayhorn and I break down what we’re looking for from the Buckeyes against the Green Wave, and which backups are going to get major snaps with the Penn State game next week.
