Program: Steve Helwagen – OSU Football
- 1986 grad of CHS and OSU
- Steve Helwagen was a writer for the Circleville Herald
- Now works at Bucknuts.com – started there for the 2003 season
- 27 different states travelled to covere events
- There is never enough about OSU sports in general
- Bucknuts.com – focus on Football and Basketball and the recruiting of high school students
- Next Saturday is the start of the season at Indiana. (OSU hasn’t lost to them since 1987)
- So many changes in student athletics – NIL; transfer portal; Big 10 adding UCLA, Oregon, Washington, USC so the Big 10 will have 18 teams
- OSU cleared over $20million last year (8 home football games)
- There is going to be a human toll of traveling cross-country, not just students, but coaches and support staff
- 1993 – now. OSU consistently top 10 finishes, NFL draft picks, etc.
- 6 of top 40 high school students signed already for OSU football
- Texas and Oklahoma going to SEC. Cincinnati going to Big 12.
- This season: a lot of promise. Georgia lost a lot of guys to NFL. OSU well positioned to have a great year
- Big question is who will be QB…
- Every practice is filmed with 8 different camera’s
- If there is a depth problem, you go into the portal and grab players
- This is the last year with East vs. West in Big Ten. Will be top 2 teams
- At Wisconsin, Luke Fickell taking over there. Will be a night game.
- Any work on Gene Smith’s position? Just hired President Carter from Nebraska, so thought is he would have a say in the position.
- ESPN couldn’t afford to bid since they have lost so many members. FOX/CBS/NBC moving forward will split the coverage
