Outside the Shoe is a weekly podcast that focuses on Ohio State sports that aren’t football or men’s basketball.
Last season, Ohio State men’s hockey had an impressive run. Behind a 7-game win streak that tore through the likes of Michigan, Penn State and Notre Dame, the Buckeyes picked up an outright Big Ten regular season title. Meredith and Geoff talk about what impressed them most during the campaign, and what happens next for the scarlet and gray with Mason Jobst going to the NHL.
Additionally, they’ll delve into the eligibility differences college hockey has, as well as the sport’s popularity.
