Beanie and The Boom Podcast: Jonathan Wells on Ohio State’s running back rotation

This week on the Beanie and The Boom Podcast, it’s a crowded backfield with four former Ohio State running backs on the show. Jonathan Wells and Antonio Pittman join hosts Beanie Wells and Boom Herron to discuss a wide range of topics.

Jonathan Wells was recruited out of New Orleans by John Cooper in the late 90’s and finished his college career with 2,344 yards and 26 touchdowns. Wells’ final season was in 2001 when first-year head coach Jim Tressel led the Buckeyes to 26-20 win over Michigan. Wells put an exclamation point on his career in that game with 129 yards and three touchdowns. Listen as Wells explains the difference between the coaches and their approach to playing Michigan.

Topics include:

  • Hue Jackson. Did the Browns coach deserve to get fired?
  • What is holding back this Ohio State football team? Scheme or players?
  • How should the coaches handle/play two talented running backs in J.K. Dobbins and Mike Weber.
  • Do you like the college football playoff format? What would you change?
  • What made Jonathan Wells choose Ohio State and become the first player from Louisiana to play for the Buckeyes?
  • Wells describes the first time he saw Eddie George and the influence he had on his life.
  • Wells and Pittman tell a few stories about the day they were drafted into the NFL and how it didn’t go the way they expected.
  • Life after football including starting a record label.
