The Morning Scoop The Ohio State Practice That Changed College Football History

Three years ago this week, something happened at an Ohio State football practice that would totally change the college football landscape for years to come.

At the time, it didn't seem like much. A broken bone that healed in just a few weeks. But it ended up leading to a Heisman Trophy, two other Heisman finalists, a national title, a pair of high-profile transfers, and quite possibly three first-round NFL Draft Picks.

Buckeye Scoop beat reporter Tony Gerdeman joins host Tom Orr to share that story.

Plus, what he saw and heard at the protest at the Big Ten's office, and a first-hand look at one of the Buckeyes' top recruiting targets in action on the high school football field.
