In this episode of the Land Grant Holy-Land instant recap podcast, Chris Renne is joined by Josh Dooley to have a conversation about CJ Stroud, Jaxon Smith-Njigba, and the remaining question marks about defense ahead of the offseason.

They discuss what went wrong for the Buckeyes in the first quarter and how helpless they felt watching the Ohio State defense in the first half. Then they discuss giving credit where it’s due with the effort of the defense in the second half.

Chris and Josh then discuss CJ Stroud’s record-breaking performance and the growth he’s had over the season. This leads to a conversation about the confidence Ohio State fans should have for next season. They also discuss Smith-Njigba’s incredible performance and discuss whether this is the greatest individual performance by an Ohio State player in history.

After the break, they discuss the special teams issues during kickoff coverage and give their final thoughts on the game.

What’s next for the Buckeyes? The guys are chatting to end the show before the offseason.

Thank you listeners for continuing to support us this season, and while you can find all the podcasters who have been on this show elsewhere, we thank you all for listening to us immediately after the game.
