Steve asked Justin about playing in new offensive coordinator Marc Trestman’s system. Justin looks forward to getting the season underway with this new look offense saying that when, “you look at his history with running backs, they all get heavily involved. I’m very excited about playing in his offense.”
Ken asked Justin whether or not he is concerned with the teams performance so far in the pre-season. Justin is happy with the teams performance so far saying, “I’m not concerned. The starters on both sides of the ball have played well. It’s the preseason were not game planning yet, were just making sure were ready for Denver week one.”

Steve asked Eddie about who he think will win the starting quarterback job for Ohio State this season. Eddie noted, “based off of what I’ve seen in practice, its a really tight race. Jones and Barrett are so close. My gut feeling would be to go with Cardale Jones.”
Ed asked Eddie about any teams that could surprise people and make a run to the college football playoff “I like Notre Dame, they have a great nucleus, I also like Oklahoma, they should bounce back from last year. And then there’s Michigan State, they should be able to compete for a national title this season.”
Eddie went on to discuss some of the classic games between the Tennessee Titans and Baltimore Ravens, whether or not Ray Rice can still play at a high level in NFL, and an overview of the 2015 College Football Tailgate Tour which gets started this Monday night as Ohio State visits Lane Stadium to face Virginia Tech.
Rick joined Ed and Steve to preview the upcoming college football season which gets going tonight.
Steve asked Rick about Cardale Jones going to the hospital with a severe headache “its a little bit alarming, but I’m told everything checked out okay. Remember they play on Monday, if they played Saturday it would be a bigger deal, but he should be in the mix Monday. Knowing coach I think J.T. Barrett will be the starter.”
Ed asked Rick which college football game during the opening weekend stands out as the game to watch. Rick is very interesting in the Utah Michigan game saying, “the Utah v. Michigan game is going to be must see TV. Whether or not Harbaugh has the talent to bring Michigan back to prominence we’ll have to wait and see. I really like this Utah team though, especially their running back Devontae Booker.”MORE NEWS: Maryland Weather: Severe Thunderstorm Watch In Effect
