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.

Shorthanded once again, Ohio State was able to dispatch a hungry Northwestern team 22-10 on Saturday in Indianapolis to take home yet another Big Ten title. Missing guys like Chris Olave, Jaxon Smith-Njigba, Baron Browning and Marcus Hooker to COVID-19 protocols/injuries, the team looked off-kilter on offense behind a shaky Justin Fields. Luckily, Trey Sermon turned into the second coming of Eddie George/Ezekiel Elliott as he put the team on his back with 331 yards and two scores.

The game certainly did not go as many had expected, and on today’s episode George and I break down what we saw this past weekend. We apologize for any of the bad things we may have said about Sermon in the past, discuss some of the play-calling issues that plagued Ohio State — especially in the first half — and touch on some other big picture topics like the College Football Playoff and the Heisman Trophy.

We will be back sometime early next week with a more in-depth analysis of the Buckeyes’ rematch against the Clemson Tigers in the Sugar Bowl on New Years Day. As always, if you like what we’re doing, be sure to subscribe and drop a review on Apple Podcasts. We’ll see ya soon!
