Hangout in the Holy Land is back to give you their breakdown of all things Buckeyes. The hosts are new, the football season is new, but the sarcasm hasn’t changed a bit. Join George Eisner and myself all year long as we break down Ohio State’s opponents and recap the Buckeyes’ performance each weekend.

No. 3 Ohio State defeats No. 18 Penn State 38-25 in Happy Valley

This was the game circled on everyone’s calendar as soon as the new Big Ten fall season was announced, and — at least for fans of Ohio State — it certainly lived up to the hype. Despite what might appear to be a closer final score than some expected, the Buckeyes were never really in danger of losing this game, taking control right from the opening possession and dominating throughout thanks to an unstoppable air attack and impenetrable run defense.

On today’s show, George and I talk about some of the things that stood out to us in the Halloween night action. We break down some of the improvements Ohio State made on both sides of the ball since the season opener, and any concerns we may have moving forward based on some things we saw. We also bash on the questionable officiating and the awful fake crowd noise.

We end the show by reading some of your tweets, which you can send us @HolyLandPod on Twitter. Some of you guys were not all that impressed with the Buckeyes’ efforts on Saturday night, and we are here to tell you that Ohio State football is, in fact, really good and you should not be worried at all.

We’ll be back again on Wednesday for a preview of Ohio State’s marquee (sarcasm) matchup with Rutgers, which as you all know is tied with Michigan and ahead of Penn State in the Big Ten East standings.
