Summer is no time for vacation at Ohio State. At least not for anybody who wants to represent the Buckeyes and compete for championships by November.
There are countless stories of the workouts, the exhaustion and the painful memories that come with an offseason working out with Mickey Marotti. And at the end, there’s also an appreciation for what the legendary strength coach does to mold the players at Ohio State.
Most of those tales, of course, aren’t fit for public consumption. But as I told Austin Ward in our recent conversation about what goes on during the steamy summer months before training camp arrives, those sessions wind up being worth it and the lessons carry on for years.
So, in order to pull the curtain back just a little bit, here’s a little primer on what Ohio State is going through with Marotti now in July as the countdown for the 2018 season really starts to wind down. And for more insights from me and my fellow Lettermen, check out our contributor page and enjoy some #BuckIQ breakdowns and a lot more all season long.
