COLUMBUS — Ohio State has worked towards building one of the deepest and most talented offensive line units in all of college football over the last two years. As part of Offensive Line Week at Lettermen Row, the crew is back at Roosters to break down the development of the unit and plenty more, especially from the recruiting trail.

Lettermen Row senior writer Austin Ward is joined by Lettermen Row staff writer Spencer Holbrook, former Buckeyes quarterback Justin Zwick and former Ohio State linebacker Bobby Carpenter to talk about the Ohio State offensive line depth chart and plenty more from the world of Buckeyes athletics.

The guys broke down the latest on Ohio State’s rivalry with Michigan. A photo surfaced on social media earlier this month from the Michigan football facility weight room, an image was on the video board with a simple message: “What are you doing to beat Ohio State today?” Jim Harbaugh still hasn’t defeated the Buckeyes in five tries, and starting to take The Game seriously is too much, too late.

That wasn’t even the best part of the conversation, however, as the crew broke down the latest College Football Playoff news. The CFP’s working group released its recommendation last week to move to a 12-team model. The proposal now moves to CFP Management Committee, which is set to meet this week in Chicago.

The new format would feature the six highest-ranked conference champions along with six at-large spots, usually including Ohio State as a conference champion. The top-four champions would receive a first-round bye, while the other eight teams would meet in first-round games on campuses of the higher-ranked teams.

Don’t miss this loaded episode, and don’t forget to grab the $2 appetizers from Roosters every Tuesday at all Roosters locations.

As always, Lettermen Live is hosted by Roosters on Olentangy River Road in Columbus.
