COLUMBUS, Ohio — Get insight and reaction to Ohio State sports on the Inside the Shoe podcast brought to you by Land of 10. On the latest edition, Kyle Lamb cautions Ohio State fans not to jump off the basketball bandwagon just yet after the Buckeyes’ 74-62 loss in Ann Arbor against Michigan on Sunday. It was the second consecutive loss for Ohio State, which fell to Penn State on Thursday.
The Buckeyes return home on Tuesday for senior night and the final regular-season home game against Rutgers. Kyle analyzes what has gone wrong for Ohio State the past two games and why it’s possible the Buckeyes have not necessarily peaked and aren’t overrated.
Every episode of Inside the Shoe can be found here.
Topics discussed on Inside the Shoe Monday include:
- What went wrong in the 74-62 loss to Michigan on Sunday and what the Buckeyes didn’t do that they had been doing when they won 13 of their first 14 Big Ten games.
- Recent struggles by Keita Bates-Diop and whether anyone should be alarmed by his performance. Bates-Diop scored 17 against Michigan on Sunday although it took 17 shots to do so. He also turned over the ball 4 times.
- Why a plethora of losses by other top-10 and top-15 teams nationally might be a good barometer and a reason not to panic when seeing Ohio State’s two-game slide.
- Whether this Ohio State team more closely resembles the finish of the 2006 team, which lost on the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament; the 1999 team, which made the Final Four; or this choice ― neither or both.
This week on the podcast, Kyle will catch up with Ryan Donnelly for the latest in 2019 football recruiting as well as take part in his weekly chats with Austin Ward and Ryan Ginn.
