Buckeye Breakdown Podcast: Setting Expectations as Ohio State Prepares for Arkansas State

Ohio State prepares to host its first non-Power 5 team of the season with Butch Jones and the Arkansas State Red Wolves coming to town. They’re coming off a great win over Grambling State, 58-3, but this game could get ugly early at The ‘Shoe.

Brendan Gulick and Craig Hyson help set some expectations for the Buckeyes as they attempt to launch the offense this week.

Among the topics they cover:

  • A Brief Reconnaissance Report on the State of Arkansas
  • What we hope to learn from Ryan Day at his press conference this afternoon
  • How would the national narrative around the Buckeyes be different if they opened the season with ASU instead of Notre Dame
  • A specific measure of the quality of Ohio State’s rushing defense last week
  • What are the status updates on Jaxon Smith-Njigba and Julian Fleming?
  • Who else do you want to see play on Saturday?
