Dan Hope and Colin Hass-Hill of Eleven Warriors bring you inside the Ohio State football beat every Wednesday with the latest on Ryan Day and his Buckeyes.
How Cancellations Could Impact Ohio State's CFP Chances
We discuss Ohio State's decision to cancel its road trip to Illinois, why that might have (hopefully) saved Ohio State's game against Michigan State this week and what must happen over the next three weeks for the Buckeyes to still make the College Football Playoff.
Pass Defense Problems and Playoff Rankings
We discuss what's wrong with Ohio State's pass defense and if the Buckeyes can fix it, why there's nothing wrong with Ohio State being fourth in the initial College Football Playoff rankings, how the Buckeyes have become QBU in recruiting and more on a loaded episode of Real Pod Wednesdays.
Best Opponent on a Weak Schedule
We discuss the fallout of Maryland canceling last week's game due to COVID-19, why Ohio State is favored to win this week's game by three touchdowns even though Indiana is 4-0, and why the Hoosiers nonetheless look like the toughest test of the regular season as the gap between the Buckeyes and the Big Ten's other traditional powers continues to widen.
What's Actually Worth Worrying About?
After an imperfect performance against Rutgers led to more concerns from Ohio State fans about the defense, running game and interior offensive line, we discuss how much each of those things are actually worth worrying about. In a wide-ranging show, we also discuss what we expect from the Buckeyes at Maryland this week and the impact of Jimmy Sotos and Meechie Johnson being eligible to play for Ohio State basketball this season.
Championship Potential, Secondary Concerns
Ohio State's offense and defensive front seven looked like championship-caliber units against Penn State, but concerns still linger about the secondary. We discuss all of that and what we're most looking forward to seeing in the Buckeyes' third game of the season against Rutgers.
A Good First Game and A Big Test Ahead
We discuss why there's been too much focus on the negatives after Ohio State won its season opener against Nebraska by 35 points, and look ahead to what will be a tougher test this week at Penn State.

Stay on topic
Really like the pod when they stay on topic. I understand the circumstances don’t give them much breaking news but please stop talking about the virus and how you aren’t experts. We understand you aren’t and we aren’t expecting you to predict when we will get back to normal. How about go thru each position group and list potential recruits for each group? Projecting some top players for the Ohio class of 2022?
Lost me today
I listened to this for some sort of elevated opinion but to say that this season is any type of indication on if Kerry Combs is a good DC lost me. He has 1 returning starter at dB and he’s playing a new position. Not to mention the dbs have lost Cam Brown Amir Riep Isaiah Pryor Brendon White. You keep saying they had 60 practices. That’s 3 months worth and Shane Wade opted out for 2 weeks. There’s a reason you start practicing in March when the season starts in August. Not to mention they couldn’t talk until what a month before the season b
