The pilot episode for Buckeye Focused! Welcome to the newest Ohio State Buckeye football podcast. It’s week one and the Notre Dame Golden Domers are coming to The Shoe for a top 5 matchup. We have to talk about it!

This season 1, week 1 episode of Buckeye Focused is renting space on SportsE+, for the moment. By next week, the “Buckeye Focused” podcast will have its own home.

For now, here’s today’s show featuring former Ohio State Buckeye, Nate Oliver (IG). And former 8th grade outside linebacker that could never keep containment, Eric Kasimov (Twitter).

Nate played for the Buckeyes mostly under Coach Jim Tressel between 2007-2011. Nate is the Director of Keith B. Key Buckeye Social Entrepreneurship Program at The Ohio State University.

Eric is the founder of KazSource, Inc, a dynamic company managing a portfolio of brands and projects in the areas of content, podcasting, production, sports, mental health, insurance, and ventures.
