    Ohio State's Paris Johnson plan, and why it makes sense for the Buckeyes

    On this Thursday Buckeyes Talk Podcast from cleveland.com, the focus is on the offensive line, leading off with sophomore five-star Paris Johnson Jr. When he committed to Ohio State, Johnson saw the depth chart and figured he'd be a starting tackle by Year 2. On Wednesday, Johnson and offensive line coach Greg Studrawa talked about why that's not the case, how the decision to move Johnson to guard this year was made and what Johnson thinks it means for his future.
    Nathan Baird, Doug Lesmerises and Stephen Means discuss it all, plus updates on Harry Miller, Thayer Munford, Nicholas Petit-Frere, Matthew Jones, Luke Wypler, Dawand Jones, Josh Fryar and the rest of the OSU offensive linemen.

Miss buckeyetalk on Sunday

Subscribed to a few podcasts in different topics. This is the one I listen to first. Really like Doug. Great football analytic skills, his style of humor and even the “ranting”. The dynamics between the hosts also make it fun. The podcast quality is really high. Not random chatting about buckeye football, which could be very easy to do. Feel the hosts hold themselves to higher standards, which set them apart from others in buckeye coverage.

“Well you were on the call too.” “Marcus Hooker, if he wasn’t being arraigned today and indefinitely suspended.....”

Fantastic. I keep checking back to see if Nathan has tossed Doug out of a helicopter yet.
