After all the talk and all the press conferences, game day is finally here. A special episode this week as we dedicate the entire show to Ohio State and college football. The season begins on Saturday in Baltimore against Navy.
Redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett takes over after Miller’s season-ending shoulder injury. For more on Barrett, we called Doug Lesmerises from cleveland.com and the Plain Dealer. There’s other positions that aren’t yet set for this Ohio State team, less than two days from kickoff.
Here’s OSU’s most up-to-date depth chart.

We’re fascinated with OSU football here in Central Ohio, but around the nation, most of the offseason headlines focused on the new playoff system. This is the first season college football will use a new four-team playoff instead of a single championship game determined by polls and computer numbers. The four team will be picked by a 13-member selection committee.
