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, Jordan Williams 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.

Ohio State announced that following the cancellation of their trip to Autzen Stadium last fall, the Buckeyes will play a home-and-home with Oregon in 2032 and 2033. On the latest episode of LGHL’s Stick to Sports podcast, Matt and Jordan talk about how weird it is to schedule college football games a decade in advance.

They discuss all of Ohio State’s currently scheduled non-conference opponents, and how much the fan experience should play into an AD’s decision making process when putting a schedule together.

Matt and Jordan also each pick their ideal non-conference slates for Ohio State, factoring in everything from competition, financials, tradition, playoff implications, and more.

Matt: Simone Biles continues to break history

Jordan: Escape Rooms
