COLUMBUS, Ohio — Get insight and reaction to Ohio State football and basketball on the Inside the Shoe podcast, brought to you by Land of 10. In the latest edition, Ryan Ginn joins Kyle Lamb for discussion on Ohio State basketball’s matchup with South Dakota State on Thursday in Boise, Idaho, in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, as well as reports of Thad Matta’s possible acceptance of the vacant job at Georgia.
Every episode of Inside the Shoe can be found here.
Topics discussed on Inside the Shoe on Wednesday include:
- A plea of forgiveness for omission of Ohio State’s wrestling team in the Tuesday podcast as we discussed a huge week for Buckeyes’ athletics. Ohio State is a favorite to win the NCAA title this weekend as it goes for a second championship in four years this weekend in Cleveland.
- Thad Matta’s reported job offer from Georgia and whether it is an optimal landing spot for the former Buckeyes basketball coach.
- Ohio State’s matchup with South Dakota State on Thursday (4 p.m. ET, TNT) and whether the public perception of the Buckeyes being a huge upset candidate is really fair. South Dakota State has one of the most efficient offenses in the country, but also one of the lower-rated defenses. ESPN’s BPI gives the Jackrabbits a 20 percent chance of knocking off the Buckeyes.
- Whether fans will see a rested, reloaded Ohio State team and if Keita Bates-Diop will be back to scoring early and often after nearly two weeks between games.
On Thursday, we will check in with Austin Ward, who is covering the NCAA Tournament for Land of 10 in Boise. Friday, we will recap the Buckeyes’ first-round performance, and Ryan Donnelly also will provide a 2019 recruiting update.
