    Ask LGHL: How Do Football Teams Handle Substitutions so Quickly in Games? (08/10/22)

    Ask LGHL: How Do Football Teams Handle Substitutions so Quickly in Games? (08/10/22)

    Every day for the entirety of the Ohio State football season, we will be asking and answering questions about the team, college football, and anything else on our collective minds of varying degrees of importance. If you have a question that you would like to ask, you can tweet us @LandGrant33 or if you need more than 280 characters, send an email HERE.
    To answer today's "Ask LGHL" question, we went the podcast route, since it was complicated and probably required some follow-up in the moment. So, answering the question sent in by Gary Fugitt, Matt Tamanini asked LGHL's resident football coach Caleb Houser to shed some light on an underappreciated, yet still very impressive, aspect of football gameday operations.
    Gary asked:
    "I am constantly amazed at how smoothly they get people in and out of the game, even as they change personnel play-to-play."
    In this episode, Caleb explains the process how his football team handles quick substitutions and provides insight into how teams prepare for every possible situation that a game could throw at them.

    The Dotted Line: What Does Ohio State's Rocky July Recruiting Mean for the 2023 Class? (08/10/22)

    The Dotted Line: What Does Ohio State's Rocky July Recruiting Mean for the 2023 Class? (08/10/22)

    On “The Dotted Line”, Land-Grant Holy Land’s Matt Tamanini talks to recruiting experts, LGHL’s recruiting analysts, and prospects themselves to get a unique perspective on the players that will be a part of Ohio State’s future.
    This will come as no surprise to anyone who pays even the slightest bit of attention to Ohio State football recruiting, but the last couple weeks of July did not go very well for the Buckeyes. After the 2023 class vaulted to the No. 1 position in the country on the strength of three impressive wide receiver commitments, anticipation was building for a wide array of defensive blue-chippers to join the Buckeyes as the month progressed... except not only did that not happen, but they all committed elsewhere, elsewhere, leaving Ohio State scrambling to figure out what is next for its defensive recruiting efforts.
    In this episode, LGHL recruiting columnist Caleb Houser breaks down what went wrong for the Buckeyes in July, what needs to happen to right the ship, and what is still moving in Ohio State's favor.

    Silver Bullets: Ramping Up for the 2022 OSU Season (08/09/22)

    Silver Bullets: Ramping Up for the 2022 OSU Season (08/09/22)

    Well, hello there! Chip Minnich and I are excited to become part of the Land-Grant Holy Land team this season. If you’re not familiar with us, well, we’ve been doing the Silver Bullets Podcast together since August of 2018. Chip has been doing it a bit longer, as he and Shannon Sommers hosted the first 25 episodes together before I came aboard.
    Now, here we are on our 114th episode of the Silver Bullets Podcast and the first at our new home, here at LGHL. Chip and I last recorded in the aftermath of Ohio State’s wile 48-45 Rose Bowl win over Utah, so it’s been a minute.
    For this episode, we touch on why we left our old place and how excited we are to be here. We also discussed two of the biggest off-season stories of the past several months — the addition of USC and UCLA to the Big Ten, and the coaching changes that Ryan Day made to the OSU staff after the conclusion of the 2021 season. Both Chip and I grew up loathing USC due to the fact that the Trojans wrecked a lot of Ohio State seasons in the Rose Bowl, so we’re both finding it a little surreal to think that they could soon be a conference opponent. We’re also eager to see what lies ahead between now and 2024 in terms of additional expansion.
    The Buckeyes did a little house cleaning on the defensive coaching staff since last year and we discussed what that might mean for Ohio State’s season to come. We also touched on the important, yet less talked about addition of Justin Frye and how that could improve things for Day’s offense.
    Finally, we looked ahead to what listeners can expect in the run-up to Ohio State’s 2022 kickoff against Notre Dame. We look forward to bringing you our show every week through the end of the season and then going monthly in the off-season. We invite you to provide feedback or send questions to us at SilverBulletsPod (at) gmail dot com and feel free to follow the show on Twitter at @SilvrBulletsPod.
    It’s great to be here and to get started.

    I-70 Football Show: Tier 3 - Low Bowl Tier

    I-70 Football Show: Tier 3 - Low Bowl Tier

    Welcome to a new episode of Land-Grant Holy Land’s I-70 podcast. On this show we talk all things Big Ten football and basketball. After every week of action, we will get you caught up on all the conference’s games and look ahead at the matchups, storylines, and players that you should be paying attention to in the next week. My name is Jordan Williams, and I am joined by my co-host Dante Morgan.
    We are a few weeks away from the 2022-2023 football season, so it is time to switch gears from talking season and dive in headfirst into real football content. What better way to start football season then ranking teams and picking games? In our season preview we rank the Big Ten into four tiers, the non-bowl tier, the low-bowl tier, the NY6 bowl tier and the contender’s tier. We also predict records and finishes for all fourteen teams leading to 168 games picked.
    In this episode we discuss the three or four teams, depending on who you ask, that will make lower ranked bowl games. Jordan believes that Mike Locksley, an overall bad coach, will stumble into back-to-back bowl games on the shoulders of his talented quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa and his pass catchers Rakim Jarrett and Dontay Demus Jr. While Dante disagrees, they both agree that after a shocking 5-7 season the Fighting Illini will reach six wins and make it to a bowl game in the second year under Bret Bielema. There may be a ceiling to what Illinois can be in the Big Ten but behind Chase Brown and Josh McCray they will be a tough team to face.
    While Maryland and Illinois may be happy about being placed in this tier the same cannot be said for the next two teams. After winning the Big Ten West and facing Michigan in the championship game Iowa takes a step back. Their defense will be good as always but with some losses on offense and without a change on the offensive staff this team should lose more games than last year. Penn State makes the final team in this tier. Their ceiling will remain limited with Sean Clifford as their starting quarterback. They should have a renewed James Franklin but losing Jahan Dotson, Jaquan Brisker, and Brent Pry will be tough to deal with. This team should be better in the future but with a tough schedule will not contend for the Big Ten East crown.
    In their weekly pit stop Dante gives a shout out to the Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Chris Boswell new contract extension. Jordan expresses anger about the Deshaun Watson suspension and the overall process.

    Buck Off Podcast: The best Big Ten Conference Preview

    Buck Off Podcast: The best Big Ten Conference Preview

    On today’s episode of “Buck Off with Christopher Renne,” I am joined by Jordan Williams, and we get into our Big Ten conference preview for the 2022 season.
    Before we get into the preview we get into some news and notes with the start of Fall Camp on the horizon. We discuss the impending football season and how last year goes into the dumpster when Fall Camp starts. We also get into the stories we’re most excited about for the first day of camp.
    To start our conference preview with Big Ten West and discuss how all seven teams will fare this season. We start with the teams projected at the bottom including the lifeless Northwestern program and the steadily improving Illinois program. We then get into the discussion about the middle of the pack programs and teams looking to improve including Nebraska, Minnesota, and Purdue. We then discuss the division champs Iowa and why Wisconsin should be the safe bet to reclaim their conference thrown. (13:33)
    After the break, we get into the Big Ten East division and how this division should have a defined pecking order once again. Indiana is getting a lot of 6th place hype which we disagree with whole heartedly, and we discuss why Rutgers can be a bowl team this year. After that we discuss Maryland who exists in the middle on their own and what they can do to have a successful season. We then get into Michigan, Michigan State, and Penn State discussing how they can be better or worse than last year. We don’t get into Ohio State because we will be doing an in depth preview closer to the season. (1:04:39)
    To close out the show, we make award predictions including conference MVP, offensive player of the year, defensive player of the year, and biggest upset to close out a loaded show.

What’s with the dot matrix printer in the background?

Two weeks in a row we have to listen to the sound of a dot matrix printer as background to George Eisner and Ben Goren. Any chance you can move that thing or find a better spot to record?

Background noise

Listening to one guy do dishes or something in background is really annoying. Good analysis but all that background noise is distracting.

Spammy b ,

Complaining about snow?

I enjoyed the cast but complaining about cold and snow against TTUN in Ohio is ridiculous. We aren’t Arizona St. open a window. They have Warm weather recruits too. It’s cold in late Nov! Other than that keep up the good work.
