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.

On the latest episode of “Hangout in the Holy Land,” I got to sit in for the great George Eisner as Gene Ross and I discussed how the cancelation of Saturday’s Ohio State game against the Illinois Fighting Illini impacts the Buckeyes’ hopes to play in both the Big Ten Championship and the College Football Playoff.

There is still a lot unknown about how the team is handling the virus, but we did learn a lot from Saturday’s virtual press conference featuring OSU athletic director Gene Smith, head coach Ryan Day, and team physician Dr. Jim Borchers.

Gene and I talk about the highlights of the presser and then spin that forward to discuss the various scenarios revolving around the Big Ten Championship Game, whether or not the Buckeyes can play against Michigan State next week, and who they might meet in the Champions Weekend — whether they’re in the title game or not.

We also got into our thoughts about OSU’s chances to make the College Football Playoff, and let’s just say that Gene is much more optimistic than I am.
