Following up our excellent conversation with Jonathan Wells and The Wiz of Odds, we continue our return with another great interview. New Orleans Saints Free Safety Malcolm Jenkins (OSU DB ’05-’08) joins me on the podcast! In addition to being a Buckeye Legend and Super Bowl champion, Malcolm’s work in the community is making a difference in New Orleans and is worth checking out.
Jenkins discusses his feelings about the current situation surrounding his Alma mater, along with his feelings about OSU compliance in particular. He also talks Coach Tressel, the NFL Lockout, and what he thinks of Nebraska joining the Big Ten.
