  • The workmanlike nature of the Ohio State football team readying for the Cotton Bowl on Dec. 29 against USC.
  • J.T. Barrett’s final game with the Buckeyes and the silliness of a few people calling for Dwayne Haskins to start in place of Barrett in the Cotton Bowl.
  • Whether non-playoff bowl games should be an extension of the season or rather treated the same as exhibition games.
  • The likelihood of cornerback Denzel Ward leaving after the season given his appearance on several NFL scouting lists, which have him going as a high first-round pick.
  • Wondering about the future of several underclassmen, including Sam Hubbard, Jerome Baker, Dre’Mont Jones, Johnnie Dixon, Parris Campbell and Mike Weber Jr.

On the Monday edition, Kyle will preview college football’s early signing period that starts Wednesday, continue to preview the USC game and begin to look ahead to a big week for Ohio State basketball.
