COLUMBUS, Ohio - Saturday night's game against Wisconsin is going to be a daunting enough task on its own but are there any distractions going into the game?
The team is still waiting on the latest news surrounding running back Jaamal Berry and is taking a 'wait and see' approach as legal issues are being sorted out. As of now it appears that he is still actively with the team but if any sort of formal charges are filed then a suspension could be coming.
Outside of that the team seems to be about as ready as it can be with the one-loss Badgers coming to town. The oddsmakers still have the Buckeyes in the neighborhood of being a touchdown underdog at home but if you ask any member of the team, they don't even pay attention to the lines and just want to sort it all out on the field.
On Thursday we caught up with head coach Luke Fickell to get his final thoughts about the game and check on some personnel issues including the back-up quarterback rotation and if a second signal caller has to come into the game if it would be Kenny Guiton or Joe Bauserman. Plus we got his opinions on Wisconsin superstar quarterback Russell Wilson and what he has added to a talented Wisconsin team.
