Buckeye Focused

“You have to prepare your kids and give them the courage to do what’s best for themselves.” – Jimmie Bell
So much insight, self-reflection, and inspiring advice in this episode. Jimmie tells stories of:
  • a non-violent end to a conflict
  • teaching kids to value themselves
  • being presented with something that has nothing to do with you
  • communicating with the important people in your life
  • understanding the consequences of your decisions
  • how to fight through fear
  • you deserve “this”
  • realizing who you are
There are individuals we come across in life that have an immediate impact. For Nate Oliver and now me, one of those individuals is Jimmie Bell. And we hope now you. By listening to this episode, you will understand what Jimmie Bell means by the question he asks his own daughter: “Why are you with people who don’t value you?”
Jimmie Bell (JB) deserves to be heard — he needs to be heard. And we hope you will listen to what JB has to say. We promise you will be affected by this conversation no matter your background.
While this is “Buckeye Focused”, a buckeye here and a buckeye there spawned this conversation. But this conversation goes way beyond football and buckeyes. I’ve always said “sports bring people together” and this episode proves that.

What is Buckeye Focused?

Welcome to Buckeye Focused! The newest Buckeye podcast. This one features Buckeye, Nate Oliver! And we talk more than just football. But while football and some buckeyes brought us together...this podcast and these conversations run deep. Buckeye Focused is presented and produced by SportsEpreneur. Part of the KazSource Podcast Network.

It's Buckeye season. We have to talk about it!

This is season one of the Buckeye Focused podcast.

This podcast is not here to replace other great Buckeye podcasts like Buckeye Talk by Cleveland dot com, Menace2Sports with Zach Smith, Morning Five by Bucknuts, Letterman Live, and the many other excellent Buckeye-related podcasts. This Buckeye Focused podcast exists to allow a Buckeye like you to listen in to a conversation featuring a former Buckeye and his host talking football -- but these conversations go much deeper. Topics covered include buckeye stories, lessons learned on and off the field, stories of failure and success, insights as to what is going on around the program, game previews, game recaps, player insights, mental health, and topics in and around the world of college football like the college football playoff, games around the country, the Big Ten, NIL, and of course players, fans, and media popping off on social media trying to get those clicks. We call it out. Buckeye Focused.
