To start our conference preview with Big Ten West and discuss how all seven teams will fare this season. We start with the teams projected at the bottom including the lifeless Northwestern program and the steadily improving Illinois program.

We then discuss the division champs Iowa and why Wisconsin should be the safe bet to reclaim their conference thrown. (13:33) After the break, we get into the Big Ten East division and how this division should have a defined pecking order once again. Indiana is getting a lot of 6th place hype which we disagree with whole heartedly, and we discuss why Rutgers can be a bowl team this year.

Throughout the year, Land-Grant Holy Land will be bringing you uncut audio primarily from Ohio State press conferences, but also from individual interview sessions.

The Buckeyes will face the Egyptian and Puerto Rican national teams at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas. Unfortunately, there will be no way to watch or stream Ohio State's games in the Bahamas. Holtmann also discussed the health of players who have been nursing injuries, including Seth Towns, Justice Sueing, and Gene Brown. Neither Sueing nor Towns will play in this week's game action. Ohio State's sixth-year head coach also discussed November's Maui Invitational for a bit, but was noncommittal on if he would wear a Hawaaian shirt or not during and of the Buckeyes' three games at the Lahaina Civic Center in Maui.

I-70 Football Show: Tier Four - Non Bowl Participants

Play Episode Listen Later Aug 1, 2022 110:57


Welcome to a new episode of Land-Grant Holy Land's I-70 podcast. On this show we talk all things Big Ten football and basketball. After every week of action, we will get you caught up on all the conference's games and look ahead at the matchups, storylines, and players that you should be paying attention to in the next week. My name is Jordan Williams, and I am joined by my co-host Dante Morgan. We are a few weeks away from the 2022-23 football season, so it is time to switch gears from talking off-season to diving headfirst into real football content. What better way to start football season than ranking teams and picking games? In our season preview, we rank the Big Ten into four tiers, the non-bowl tier, the low-bowl tier, the NY6 bowl tier, and the contender's tier. We also predict records and finishes for all fourteen teams leading to 168 games picked. Last year Jordan won the competition with a record of 95-73, while Dante was close behind with a record of 93-75. Looking to improve on last year, the guys both agree that Indiana, Northwestern, Rutgers, and Nebraska will not make bowl games in the 2022-23 football season. Not all tiers are created evenly as Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano and Northwestern's head coach Pat Fitzgerald are safe even with a poor season. On the other hand, this should put the nail in the coffin of the Scott Frost experiment while Tom Allen hopes his administration will show him some love and give him another season. Maybe he will end up with the Jim Harbaugh, “prove it” contract. In their weekly pitstops, Jordan is tired of the Yankees not spending money. It is time to bring back the Yankees who operated with a blank check and would do and pay anything to win; it is no coincidence they have not won since they closed the checkbooks. Dante is tired of the double standard in the NBA where players are expected to be loyal to teams while teams are anything but loyal to their players and will lie to them or trade them in a heartbeat.

Before we get into the players on the roster we have a conversation about the current recruiting struggles the Buckeyes are facing.

We discuss the variables that effect recruitments and when the defensive recruiting might take a turn to the positive again. After that, we get into our discussions from the media days for the Big Ten. We start the the head ball coach Ryan Day, who definitely should not be fired. His expectations for the defense sound high, but are actually pretty reasonable. We then get into his comments about how 11-2 is an unsuccessful season for the Buckeyes. Once back from the break, we get into C.J. Stroud, Jaxon Smith-Njigba, and Ronnie Hickman's appearance.

Clifford and the association have begun talks with the Big Ten regarding health insurance for sports related injuries post career, a representative on each campus to support students and advocate especially around medical conversations and revenue sharing from the media rights deal. The guys discuss what a player's association could look like as well as if the players should unionize. Plus, they get into how revenue sharing could work, is it fair if only football players get paid? What would it look like for all athletes to benefit from revenue sharing? After a brief conversation about the future of the XFL and USFL the guys finish the Big Ten schedule preview. It is time for the Big Ten to change the scheduling model because it is rough! The best games in the last few weeks revolve around Iowa, Minnesota, Purdue, and Wisconsin. After a remarkably close race in 2021 the fight to win the Big Ten West should be exciting as the champion will be decided in the last few weeks. In their weekly pitstops, Jordan is in search of a support group since he plans to buy Madden 23. He cannot stop himself from buying it every year despite the fact it hardly changes and usually gets worse. Dante is anti-pre ordering video games.

My name is Jordan Williams, and I am joined by my co-host Dante Morgan. USC and UCLA broke the internet by joining the Big Ten causing us to throw out the show plan. We spend the whole episode breaking down this groundbreaking move from all angles. USC, with their brand, and Oregon with their play was the only thing keeping the Pac-12 alive. Now USC and their Los Angeles counterparts are leaving for the Big Ten. We discuss the impact this has on the Pac-12 and how we should have seen this coming after the Larry Scott hiring essentially destroyed the conferences reputation. Next, we discuss the aftershocks. Will the Big 12 play the aggressor and try to poach a few teams from the Pac-12? Oregon and Washington are they dream but with their reported interest in the Big Ten, could Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado and Utah end up in a 16 team Big 12? Would the Big 12 consider going to 18 teams and adding Cal and Stanford? Plus, what could the Big Ten do next? Does Notre Dame reconsider, will they add Oregon and Washington? How long until the ACC breaks their grant of rights and schools end up in the SEC? With all the commotion it's easy to forget the best part which is the actual games. The guys get into the on-field impact including future scheduling. The Big Ten is going to have a hard deciding the three protected opponents in their new 3-6-6 scheduling model. Should they make Ohio State vs. USC a yearly game? What do they do with secondary rivalries like Michigan/Michigan State and Ohio State/Penn State? Jordan discusses his proposed permanent games while Dante switches things up to find the best match ups. Lastly this move sends a signal to the Big Ten. Who will take note and strive to get better? Plus, how soon does USC develop on the lines to face Big Ten competition? Connect with us on Twitter: Jordan: @JordanW330 Dante: @DanteM10216 Learn more about your ad choices.

We get into why Ohio State might be looking for a similar level player in the future at another position and why getting a player like Addison is more of a guarantee than anything on the roster. We also discuss the exciting recruiting month ahead including two potential VIP visitors who the Buckeyes hope to see. This leads to us discussing the importance of visits and the importance of getting the player into the room as a coach. We close out the show with a discussion about the new coaching contracts at Ohio State and the final decision on conference divisions in college football. Learn more about your ad choices.
