Look, we get it. Your days are busy and you don’t have time to read all of the stories and tweets from the three dozen websites dedicated to covering Ohio State athletics, or the 237 Buckeye beat writers churning out hot takes and #content on a daily basis. But that’s ok, that’s what your friends at Land-Grant Holy Land are here for.
Monday through Friday, we’ll be collecting all of the articles, tweets, features, interviews, videos, podcasts, memes, photos, and whatever else we stumble across on the interwebz and putting them in our daily “Why is this News?” article. That way, you’ll have a one-stop-shop for all of the most important Buckeye news, jokes, and analysis.

Wait, so NFL coaches actually talk to people who know draft prospects as both players and people, rather than listening to unnamed sources who spit out bullshit for clout?

What about the current Buckeyes?

And Alabama just makes sense as a destination for Jamo. With DeVonta Smith and Jaylen Waddle heading to the NFL, Juiceman very well might end up starting alongside John Metchie III.

Now, I’m a huge RJ fan, so I don’t want to pile on, but this is a really bad way to frame this story.
Holy smokes — Saban just went into Hartline's room and came out with the fastest guy at Ohio State.— RJ Young (@RJ_Young) May 3, 2021

Does Ibrahima Diallo’s transfer open the door for a last-second BOOM?
Connor Lemons, Land-Grant Holy Land
