On this episode of “Land-Grant In Conversation,” Matt Tamanini talks to The Athletic Senior Writer Nick Baumgardner. Having been the beat writer for the Michigan football team for years before transitioning into covering the NFL Draft, Nick has a unique vantage point to break down everything going on in the 2023 edition of The Game. First, they get into some talent breakdowns at key positions for both squads, then they discuss how the absence of Jim Harbaugh from the sideline will impact the home team, and then Nick reveals that he has a certain Ohio State wide receiver at the top of his Heisman ballot, even if he isn’t supposed to be saying that publicly at this point.

This conversation has a number of unique discussion points that haven’t been brought up much in the lead-up to The Game.
