How Is Ohio State Addressing Its Struggles In Short Yardage?

Ohio State enters October with an unbeaten record, but several areas in which the Buckeyes still need to make substantial improvements. One is in short yardage, where the team is falling far short of head coach Ryan Day’s stated goals.

So what has the team been doing to improve there? Why don’t they utilize the quarterback sneak more? And why isn’t Marvin Harrison, Jr. getting more touches?

In this episode of the Buckeyes TomOrrow Morning podcast, you’ll hear directly from Day, as well as defensive coordinator Jim Knowles on those questions, the challenge posed this weekend by Maryland QB Taulia Tagovailoa, and how the defense has improved in limiting explosive plays.
