Great stuff again guys! I have a theory on McCall and I’m wondering if he’s plan now is for after football and he is wanting to be a coach. The position switch is interesting but if he was ever going to play it needed to happen 2-3 years ago, but by switching he exposes himself to concepts and techniques and makes him well rounded as a coach. Also gives an answer to why he hasn’t transferred because where are you going to learn more or be exposed to better coaches and resources than OSU. Curious if you agree at all or if that’s dumb.
BuckeyeScoop mixed with Michigan talk & Simpson’s scientology References
Buckeye Talk is more about Michigan and the Simpson’s than the Buckeyes. I’m a couple years older than Tony and Tom, it’s enough with the Simpson’s. Not sure how you can support a show known for its ties to committing human rights crimes in Scientology. What do you think the treehouse of horror episodes were first about, hmm could it be idk the ultimate pulp fiction writer L. Ron and his moron galactic emperor Xenu...
Used to be a great show but now it’s just a running Michigan joke, who cares! Bama and Clemson are more important and as real reporters you’d realize it. Way too many Simpson’s references, we got it and get it. You watched a lot in college like all of us, maybe it’s why you never left school. This show has gone way down over the last year plus!
Show has gone from a top 2 Buckeye Pod, to just an average 4-star Buckeye pod. However, postgame wraps are still very honest and good!
I’m just here for the Australian accents
