Outside the Shoe is a podcast that focuses on Ohio State sports that aren’t football or men’s basketball.
This week on Outside the Shoe, we’re switching things up. In a mini-edition of the podcast, Meredith Hein and Geoff Hammersley focus on Ohio State men’s lacrosse, as they close out their regular season on the road against Michigan.
It’s a big game for the Buckeyes, with Big Ten Tournament implications on the line. After coming off a nail-biting and heartbreaking overtime loss to Maryland last week on Senior Day, Ohio State holds the No. 10 ranking with an 8-3 overall record.
Meredith and Geoff talk about who the offensive and defensive X-factors are for OSU, and preview what the Buckeyes need to do to avoid an upset from the 3-9 Wolverines.
