Much of the talk surrounding Ohio State's football program right now, unsurprisingly, is about the Urban Meyer-Zach Smith controversy. The Buckeyes' head coach has been placed on paid administrative leave and his future is in question.

Ohio State's football team, though, is still preparing for the start of the 2018 season. Week 1 is only a couple of weeks away.

The Buckeyes have been in fall camp for a couple of weeks now and they had a very special visitor at practice today.

Two-time Heisman Trophy winner Archie Griffin was on the field supporting his Buckeyes.

There are few people, if any, that running backs can learn from more than Archie Griffin.

Ohio State opens its season on Sept. 1 against Oregon State.
