tBBC Radio Hour: Post Championship Talk with Ben Axelrod

It might have been over a week ago that the Ohio State Buckeyes shocked the college football world by capturing the first championship in the college football playoff era.

That doesn’t mean that there is nothing to talk!tbbc-Radio-Hour-itunes

This week on the Buckeye Battle Cry Radio Hour, we welcome Ben Axelrod to the show to break down the latest happenings surrounding the Ohio State football program.

You can find Ben’s coverage of Ohio State football at Bleacher Report, where he serves as the Ohio State lead writer. You can also hear him on the airwaves in Columbus on 99.5 The Game.

Ben and I discussed a ton of topics swirling around campus, including but not limited to

  • Cardale Jones’ decision to return to Ohio State and how it impacts the program
  • How the perception of Urban Meyer is different since his last championship.
  • Could Braxton Miller switch positions? Ben thinks it’s more likely than the former B1G offensive player of the year transferring to a different school
  • Is Ezekiel Elliot a front runner for the 2015 Heisman Trophy? We also discuss if there has been a running back that has improved as drastically as EZE did throughout his sophomore campaign.
  • Ed Warinner is heralded by Buckeye Nation for what he’s done with Ohio State’s offensive line over the last two seasons. Yet the question still has to be raised. Can put together an effective offensive gameplan.
  • Ben and Joe also discuss where the Buckeye coaching staff ranks in the national spectrum and how well of a job assistants have done improving players.

Ben wraps up the show by discussing what players from this year’s championship squad would make great wrestlers.

And one coach who obviously should be a manager under the Vince umbrella.

Speaking of the show, I’d like to remind you that you can always find us on iTunes! Soon, you’ll also be able to find us on Buckeye Sports Radio. Feel free to rate our show on iTunes and also leave a comment!

tBBC Radio Hour: Former Buckeye Defensive Back Marlon Kerner

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, who was part of the Ohio State commitment class of 1991, played a major role for head coach John Cooper’s Buckeyes.tbbc-Radio-Hour-itunes

A quarterback at Brookhaven High School, Kerner committed to Ohio State at defensive back, despite never playing the position at the high school level.

The 3rd round selection of the Buffalo Bills in 1994 shared a ton with us about his football career and the guys he played with.

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.

Thanks again to Marlon Kerner for swinging by, It was a pleasure talking to him.

tBBC Radio Hour: OSU Hoops Legend Kelvin Ransey

It’s not very often that you find yourself talking to a legend.tbbc-Radio-Hour-itunes

We’re joined this week by former Ohio State point guard Kelvin Ransey, who has played with and against some of the best basketball players in college and pro basketball history.

Isiah Thomas, Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, and Kevin McHale just begin the list of players that the former Macomber High School product has played against.

Yet the true story of the Toledo product isn’t just about who was on the court with him.

Plain and simplyHe might be one of the most underrated player in Buckeye history.

The floor general that Eldon Miller put his trust in from day one is 2nd all-time in field goals made at Ohio State.

His name appears fifth on the school’s all-time scoring list.

More importantly, Ransey was a key cog in putting Buckeye basketball back on the map.

We’re so glad to be able to share the story of the 4th overall pick in the 1980 NBA Draft.

After six seasons in the Association, Kelvin Ransey left on his own terms.  And now for 29 years, instead of assisting his teammates on the court, he’s delivering the word of god.

With the lord as his head coach, Ransey has learned that not only is he a floor general on the court.

He’s a point guard for the congregation and community.

Thanks for listening and as always you can find the show on iTunes. Clair and I will be back tomorrow to prepare you for Penn State and Ohio State on Saturday.

As always, Go Bucks!
