I think it’s safe to assume that most of us tend to turn to sports to help us wind down from a long day at work, forget our problems, and focus on our beloved teams or whatever else is happening across the world of college football, MLB, NBA, etc. But—as we’re all well aware— that option is no longer on the table for the foreseeable future. While that’s truly dreadful to think about, we at LGHL plan to help fill that void as best we can. So, we rounded up all the best news from around the Ohio State beat (and then some) to help you get your sports fix and hopefully get you to turn off the depressing-as-heck news.
We’ll start with some of the recent stuff by yours truly:
