Every episode of Inside the Shoe can be found here.
Topics discussed on Inside the Shoe on Wednesday include:
- Eli Apple being called a cancer by teammate and former Alabama star Landon Collins, and whether Collins had any business airing the dirty laundry in public.
- How to interpret the news that freshman quarterback Tate Martell was seen repping with the first offensive unit this week in bowl practices, and offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson’s comments that the coaches had toyed with the idea of playing him at various points this season.
- Another reminder not to assume Dwayne Haskins, or whoever takes the reins as signal caller for the Buckeyes next season, will be a finished product.
- The unit that has the most to gain from the matchup with USC on Friday.
- Why it’s great to see Sam Darnold playing for the Trojans against Ohio State this weekend. Darnold has not yet decided whether he will return to USC for his junior season or enter the 2018 NFL Draft. Darnold has been rumored to have reservations of departing early for the NFL because of the possibility of being taken by the Cleveland Browns at No. 1.
On the next edition Thursday, Land of 10’s Ryan Ginn will join Kyle from Arlington, Texas, to continue previewing the Cotton Bowl.
