Good evening. Did you have a chance to look at our menu of game recaps? If you open it up, you’ll see on the front page there that we have a formal “what we learned” recap, an opinion-style “five key factors” recap and a game day Twitter recap. Go ahead and turn the menu over for our dessert menu, where you’ll find our Hangout in the Holy Land podcast recap episode, as well as our Uncut Audio podcast where we hear from the players themselves.

All of our options pair nicely with a glass of wine to help you chILL OUT BECAUSE OHIO STATE IS STILL A TITLE CONTENDER DESPITE WHAT WE SAW ON SATURDAY.

Odds, grades, streaks, etc...

It would literally be punishable by law if he wasn’t...

Ohio State senior Justin Hilliard was named the highest-performing Power 5 linebacker in the nation for his performance on Saturday, which included two tackles, one forced fumble and a recovery.

If you are betting-savvy unlike yours truly, here’re the updated odds for the Heisman Trophy and the national championship.

Make a note...

Ohio State basketball’s season begins in six days (!!)...

Ohio State is ranked No. 23 in the AP Top 25’s preseason poll. What do we think?

Regardless, the Big Ten is representing nicely.

Meechie Johnson— a 6-foot-2, 185-pound combo guard from Garfield Heights— announced on Sunday that he reclassified from the 2021 class to the 2020 class, meaning he’ll graduate early from high school, enroll at Ohio State in December and suit up immediately.

COVID-19 making its way across the college sports landscape...

LSU’s game against Alabama on Saturday is in jeopardy as the Tigers have multiple players now in quarantine. They are down to one scholarship quarterback in TJ Finley, and are without any tight ends or long snappers. According to Brody Miller of The Athletic, LSU’s scholarship numbers were already in the 60s due to opt outs, transfers, etc., and are just barely meeting the SEC roster minimums.

LSU’s announcement was followed shortly by Michigan State’s.

But that’s not all!

And I have to imagine (although I hope I’m wrong) that Notre Dame will be next on the list.

Now for the worst tweet of the day!

That’s....that’s because we’re in the middle of a global pandemic. But go off Mike.
