  • How good will Fields be in 2020? Closing the book on Gibbs

    • 0:16:47
    • 8 days ago

    It is Friday and that means Jonah Booker is here for the Bucknuts Morning 5. JBook joins Dave Biddle on today's show to discuss the following:

    * Expectations for Justin Fields in 2020.

    * The Buckeyes only losing three early-entry players, which was the best-case scenario.

    * Who does JBook think will step up at running back for the 2020 Buckeyes?

    * Speaking of RBs, we can finally close the book on Jahmyr Gibbs as it pertains to OSU. Gibbs' official visit to Columbus this weekend has been cancelled. It appears the Buckeyes will sign just one running back, Miyan Williams, in their 2020 class.

    * What is JBook's take on the promotion of Corey Dennis to quarterbacks coach at Ohio State?

    All of that and more is coming at you on the Friday 5ish.

  • Wiltfong on Gibbs visit, chasing nation's top corner

    • 0:10:34
    • 9 days ago

    The offseason routine is getting rolling. This weekend, Ohio State will attempt to bolster its Class of 2020 haul when Jahmyr Gibbs visits. It's fitting the last spot in the class could go to a running back. 

    Will the red carpet treatment convince Team Gibbs that Columbus is not really that far from Dalton, Ga.?

    It's Thursday so that means imported wisdom from 247Sports Director of Recruiting Steve Wiltfong.

    Speaking of running back, we talk about two names you will hear - a lot - during the 2021 recruiting cycle. One is a high school player. One is an NFL player. Listen and you'll get it.

    Then we move to the secondary. Wiltfong has Crystal Balled one standout to Ohio State and reports on the Buckeyes chase for the nation's top corner out of a familiar recruiting area.

    That and more is coming at you on the Wednesday 5ish.

  • No Ducking the 2020 schedule | Zach Evans a take? | Urban pick wrong QB in 2018?

    • 0:15:49
    • 10 days ago

    Ohio State's 2020 football schedule includes a date at Oregon on Sept. 12, which is the second week of the season.

    The People's Champ, Matt Baxendell, joins Dave Biddle for today's show to discuss the 2020 slate, plus:

    * Where does Bax come down on the Zachary Evans debate? Is the talented running back a take for the Buckeyes if he is interested?

    * Is Bax optimistic about Jahmyr Gibbs' official visit to OSU this weekend?

    * Did Urban Meyer allow the wrong quarterback to leave after spring ball of 2018? Or did he make the right call at the time?

    That and more is coming at you on the Wednesday 5ish.

  • You go, Joe! | You stay, Zach?

    • 0:15:37
    • 11 days ago

    Joe Burrow did it. Seriously.

    The Ohio native completed what may have been the greatest single-season performance in college football history, leading LSU over Clemson, 42-25, in the National Championship Game. 

    We pay tribute to the son of a former Ohio U. defensive coordinator.

    We also get into - what else? - recruiting with our very own Duane Long.

    How big is the addition of Donovan Jackson?

    How big is Ohio State's appetite for recruiting Zach Evans?

  • Still waiting on Coombs | What's up with Evans?

    • 0:15:51
    • 12 days ago

    Those pesky Tennessee Titans keep doing things like eliminating the defending Super Bowl champions and then beating the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoffs. Which means Ohio State will have to wait at least one more week to announce the hiring of Kerry Coombs as co-defensive coordinator/defensive backs coach.

    What impact, if any, is this having on recruiting?

    Bill "Bank" Greene joins Dave Biddle to discuss that, plus:

    * What is going on with the recruitment of running back Zach Evans? Are the Buckeyes heavily involved?

    * Anything new on the Jahmyr Gibbs front?

    * What are Bank's thoughts on the early signing period in college football being in late December? Should it be in late July instead?

    * Thoughts on tonight's national championship game.

    All of that and more is coming at you on an award-winning version (probably not) of the Monday 5ish.
