On LGHL’s Outside the Shoe podcast, we talk all things Ohio State athletics that happen outside the confines of the Horseshoe.

With students returning from winter break, the floodgates are about to open with the return of winter sports, like swimming and wrestling, as well as the start of spring sports.

Yes, spring sports.

It might only be January, but indeed, sports like lacrosse and track are already scheduled to kick off this month. Leading the way is men’s volleyball, which opens its season against North Greenville University Saturday at 7 p.m. in the Covelli Center.

Meredith provides a refresher on NCAA volleyball -- including its unique tournament structure and conference alignments -- before breaking down Ohio State’s historical success. She then gets into all of the new things to look forward to from men’s volleyball this season, including a new coach, new players and a new home in the Covelli Center.

Yes, there’s lots to be excited about for volleyball. Plus, with spring sports tipping off, warmer weather must be just around the corner, right?
