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, Kyle Lamb and Ryan Ginn discuss the several spring game cancellations throughout the Big Ten for the upcoming weekend because of heavy rain in the forecast rain. With Ohio State announcing a sellout for Saturday of over 79,000 tickets, it’s just another example of why the program is at the creme of the football crop.
Also, Ryan and Kyle discuss the pressing questions heading into the spring game, including the quarterback battle, a key showdown of the receivers against the secondary and a loaded backfield for the Buckeyes heading into 2018.
