Ohio State football podcast: Buckeyes are as good as anyone, but we just don’t know it yet

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Get insight and reaction to Ohio State football on the Inside the Shoe podcast, brought to you by Land of 10. On the latest edition, Kyle Lamb says Ohio State is playing as well as anyone in the country, but no one notices because of who they’re playing. He also explains his disdain for the emphasis on head-to-head results on the rankings and focusing too much on merit and not enough on quality.

Jeremy Birmingham joins Kyle on the Tuesday show to give an update on some key 2018 football recruits. Kyle recaps a basketball visit from the weekend and discusses a new player visiting in October.

Other topics discussed on Inside the Shoe Tuesday include:

  • Whether Ohio State is as good as Alabama or Clemson, and if it even matters until they prove it down the stretch.
  • The flaw in polls and rankings putting too much emphasis on head-to-head meetings and wins or losses at the expense of quality.
  • If the blunders by the special teams agaist Maryland on Saturday will be a recurring issue or if they’ll quickly be remedied by coach Urban Meyer.
  • The consistency of J.T. Barrett’s mechanics in throwing the football this season.
  • Whether Ohio State leads for 2018 corberback Anthony Cook or if Texas has caught up.
  • Have the Buckeyes backed off Micah Parsons?
  • If Ohio State is in front for defensive tackle Tommy Tugiai, as he reportedly is close to making a decision.
  • On the basketball court, is Ohio State the leader for Will Richardson, a 2018 point guard from Oak Hill Academy? He took his official visit to campus last weekend.

Looking ahead to the Inside the Shoe podcast on Wednesday, Kyle will continue to analyze Ohio State’s season and begin the discussion about the Buckeyes’ upcoming game Saturday against Nebraska in Lincoln.
