Outside the Shoe is a podcast that focuses on Ohio State sports that aren’t football or men’s basketball
Soccer is starting back up in the coming week—so it’s the perfect time to talk Buckeyes and the pitch. Meredith Hein and I go over the recent updates around the women’s soccer program, including a top player getting a major preseason accolade; and for others, contracts being signed and extended.
Also, we’ll take another look at the non-conference opener versus Louisville, and who we should watch out for on the national stage.
