Topics discussed on Inside the Shoe on Friday include:

  • Can the Buckeyes run the ball effectively against Michigan and control both lines of scrimmage?
  • Is there a real chance that Wilton Speight or Brandon Peters start for the Wolverines, or is most of the chatter meant to keep Ohio State guessing in game preparation?
  • How the nerves have set in for this game for many Buckeyes fans and whether that is warranted based on merit or just a byproduct of history.
  • The basketball beating suffered by the Buckeyes at the hands of Gonzaga late Thursday night.
  • How the loss to the Bulldogs might be a blessing in disguise due to how the rest of the tournament schedule breaks for Ohio State.
  • Why it’s far too early to panic and compare this team to the failures of the last few seasons.
  • The need for the Buckeyes offense to find better ball movement and moving away from the ball to supplement a lack of perimeter shooting.

On Monday, Kyle and Austin Ward will look back on the Michigan game, look sideways to the Iron Bowl and other important games this weekend, and look forward to the Big Ten Championship Game against Wisconsin on Dec. 2.

If Michigan quarterbacks manage to scrape together only 9 touchdown passes again this fall, we’ll eat your iPhone.

Bohls: Rockets’ Paul, Gordon shimmy past Warriors

This wasn’t the Western Conference finals anyone expected. The last two games of this series against the two most prolific offenses in the NBA have been decided by, uh, defense. That’s right. The winning team hasn’t even eclipsed 100 points. Houston has the probable MVP but was making do with a strong supporting cast. James Harden...

UCLA dominates Arizona in softball super regional opener in Los Angeles

For their first super regional meeting in history, that was quite a statement. UCLA dominated Arizona in a 7-1 win, holding the Wildcats to just 3 hits and an essentially meaningless seventh-inning run in the series-opening victory. The Bruins built a decent lead early, scoring a run in each of the first three innings. The second of that...
