On Land-Grant Holy Land In Conversation, we talk to people in and around Ohio State athletics, and the sporting world at large, to bring you a different insight and perspective to the teams, athletes, and university that you love.
On today’s episode, we speak to Brett Ciancia, the publisher of Pick Six Previews. Every year, Pick Six puts out a unique, in-depth, compelling preview for all college football’s Power 5 schools, which I can’t recommend highly enough.
The independent pundit ranking site Stassen.com has rated Pick Six the most accurate college football predictors over the past seven years, besting he legacy brands like Athlon, Phil Steele, Street and Smith, and others.
We discuss why Ciancia has so much more confidence in the Ohio State Buckeyes than his prognosticating colleagues, the unique metrics and analytics that he uses to make his picks, why he thinks that he’s seen enough from Justin Fields and Ryan Day to put OSU in the College Football Playoff, and we break down the rest of the Big Ten as well.
