What should you look for in Ryan Day’s first Spring Game at Ohio State?

Yeah, it’s a glorified scrimmage, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be some good takeaways.

We finally have actual Ohio State football to watch on Saturday!

Well, sort of.

With Ryan Day announcing that there won’t be live tackling in the Spring Game, what can we really take away from what’s basically just a glorified scrimmage at Ohio Stadium?

On this episode of the Hangout in the Holy Land, Patrick Mayhorn and I preview Saturday’s game, and talk about everything we’re looking for, including:

  • Garrett Wilson’s debut in The Shoe
  • Why it’s smart to not have live tackling
  • How the depth-challenged offensive line will hold up
  • Getting a first look at the new defensive schemes
  • Who this year’s “Spring Game Guy” will be

We also discuss Ryan Day’s praise for Wilson, Shaun Wade, and Josh Proctor, plus why you shouldn’t worry about Kaleb Wesson declaring for the NBA Draft.
