It’s Thursday and the light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter and brighter. With two more days of camp remaining, the Buckeyes are chomping at the bit to wrap up preseason practice and line up against an opponent other than their teammates.

Friday will mark the last day of camp and players will have the weekend off before they get down to business and continue preparation for Navy on Monday. This year’s camp has seen some intense heat, sweat and competition battles on both sides of the ball as the Buckeyes strive for a fifth-consecutive Big Ten championship and BCS Bowl game.

Following Wednesday’s practice, select players stopped to share their thoughts on camp and the upcoming season. Click the audio links above to listen to Ross Homan, Chimdi Chekwa, Brian Rolle, Dane Sanzenbacher and Brandon Saine.

The Navy game will kick off at Noon ET Saturday, Sept. 5. Dave Pasch, Chris Spielman and Bob Griese will have the call on ESPN.
