    Time for something new on Buckeye Talk as Doug Lesmerises, Nathan Baird and Stephen Means roll out a new series that will drop once a week until the season starts. It's Mount Buckmore, as the guys determine their four most deserving Buckeyes to be honored at several major positions, and then analyze what a current Ohio State player would have to do to replace one of those players on the mountain.
    Up first are quarterbacks. On this episode, Doug, Nathan and Stephen each give their four QBs for Mount Buckmore, and then they discuss if Quinn Ewers will reach that level. It's history and current football, and it will be followed by episodes on running backs, receivers, coaches, pass rushers and more.

If you’re a Buckeye, it’s a must listen

Doug, Nathan and Stephen do an excellent job of breaking down all the buckeye and CFB news! I rarely miss an episode.

Have listened to this show over the last few years and have always liked it. I think the coverage and additional content over the course of pandemic has been particularly enjoyable. I have listened regularly on my ride to work and appreciate that you have kept it fun and have balanced the sometimes confusing football news with light, goofy topics.
Thank you
