Land-Grant Holy Land’s newest podcast series, Stick to Sports, will be unlike any podcast you’ve heard on the Ohio State beat. Your hosts, Tia Johnston and Matt Tamanini, will (of course) talk Ohio State football, but the primary focus of the show will be on what’s going on around the periphery, such as weird/funny happenings in college football and the sports world at large, as well as other things that keep us interested in between games, whether that’s pop culture, social media trends— you name it.

Today’s show gets a tad more serious compared to our usual nonsense, all thanks to some of the responses Matt received on his article about Larry Johnson becoming Ohio State’s first black head coach (had Ohio State’s game against Illinois went ahead). We discussed why people feel the need to either downplay or flat out not accept this kind of milestone, which is how we then transitioned into discussing my new role model, Sarah Fuller, who became the first woman to play for a P5 team when she kicked off for Vanderbilt on Saturday.

But don’t you worry! The second half of the episode is lighthearted at best, as we discuss our favorite Christmas traditions, Christmas albums and a super famous celebrity who is a huge fan of Matt’s day job podcast, True Crime Obsessed. I won’t give the celeb away, but let’s just say the pressure is on for Matt.

And of course, last but certainly not least, we name the winner of the Flavored Chip Region of our infamous Chip Bracket, before arguing the Adjacent Chip Region down to two finalists. You know the drill, head to our Twitter account to vote for who you think should move onto the Final 4 — Bold Chex Mix or Bugles?!

Tia’s Recommendation: Kendahl Landreth on TikTok (the one’s where she pretends to be her mom on FaceTime)

Matt’s Recommendation: Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey
