What is up Buckeye Nation? Welcome back to another edition of tBBC Radio Hour.

This week, Mike Doty and Joe Dexter are joined by a very special guest of Buckeye past, as former Ohio State defensive back Marlon Kerner swings by to share his great story.

Kerner told Doty and Dexter about his upbringing and the recruiting process that ended in his commitment to Ohio State.

He also tells us:

  • Who the fastest, strongest and funniest Buckeyes he ever played with were.
  • His experience with John Cooper and where he ranks him among Buckeye coaches
  • How fellow class of 91 DB Walter Taylor could of been the best pro of his Buckeye tenure, but how he gave up fame for family.
  • What it was like playing alongside so many great Buckeyes.
  • His NFL debut against John Elway and the great Bills players that were his teammates.
  • How he feels about the current NCAA Playoff system
  • His special teams plays and interception in 1993 that nearly propelled the Buckeyes to the Rose Bowl

And SO much more.
