Imagine 11-win Coastal Carolina coming to play Ohio State -- Arkansas State used to be that

It's another schedule breakdown for the 2022 Ohio State Buckeyes, and after discussing the Notre Dame opener last week, it's on to Week 2 and Ohio State's home game vs. Arkansas State.
Mitchell Gladstone of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette joins Doug Lesmerises to talk about Arkansas State and second-year coach Butch Jones, the former boss at Cincinnati and Tennessee. The Red Wolves come from the Sun Belt Conference, where they were dominating and winning league titles about eight years ago before falling on some tougher times.
But the Sun Belt plays good football -- imagine if fellow Sun Belt team Coastal Carolina, which has won 11 games each of the last two seasons, was coming to Columbus.
Doug and Mitchell talk Arkansas State's best players, the state of and hopes for the program, the Red Wolves defensive coordinator with Ohio State ties, and a little Ja Morant.
Hope you enjoy this schedule breakdown, and thanks for listening to Buckeye Talk.
