Topics discussed Friday on Inside the Shoe include:

- Why Urban continues to be a perfect fit in every way for the Buckeyes, and it’s unlikely there’s a coach out there for whom fans would trade.
- The season-ending loss for the Ohio State hockey program and why better days are likely ahead for the sophomore- and junior-laden Buckeyes. It was the second Frozen Four appearance in school history.
