The College Football Playoff is one of the most beloved sporting events in the country every year, and now fans are getting a firsthand look at how Ohio State won the first CFP.

Glory Days: Dreams and Nightmares is an 11-part podcast series that chronicles the 2014 Ohio State Buckeyes team led by Urban Meyer. Former players Joshua Perry and Evan Spencer teamed up with TV executive Chris Caldwell on the project. 

Perry was a starting linebacker on the 2014 team and is now a Big Ten Network broadcaster. Spencer was a wide receiver on the same squad and is now a Columbus-based financial executive.

Glory Days: Dreams and Nightmares is a destination for anybody who wants to be brought inside one of the most tumultuous and magical college football seasons ever,” Perry said. “We bring fans on a journey of game-breaking moments, adversity, tragedy, and perseverance that was powered by a firm belief that teamwork and brotherhood would prevail.”

The 2014 Buckeyes notably won the title on the strength of backup quarterback Cardale Jones, who made his first career start in the Big Ten Championship game. The team produced NFL stars like Joey Bosa, Ezekiel Elliott, and Michael Thomas.

“Producing this series allows us to re-live and share this extraordinary year,” Spencer said. “The conversations are unfiltered and full of intimate details that revisit the challenges, obstacles, and opponents we overcame to capture the inaugural College Football Playoff Championship.”

The first episode drops across most podcast platforms on Aug. 25.

“I may bleed scarlet and gray as an OSU grad,” Caldwell said. “But I could not be more proud of the collection of stories and first-person narratives that drive Glory Days: Dreams and Nightmares all the way from the end of the 2013 season to the National Championship Game.”
