Topics discussed on Inside the Shoe Thursday include:

  • Ohio State’s passing game and whether it will produce a 3,000-yard passer in 2018, presuming Dwayne Haskins will play quarterback for the Buckeyes.
  • Breakout possibilities on both offense and defense, including some obvious candidates and a couple of less-obvious choices.
  • A quick glance at the Buckeyes’ final regular-season basketball game Friday on the road against Indiana (8 p.m. ET, FS1). With a win, Ohio State is guaranteed no worse than a No. 2-seed and a double bye to the quarterfinals in the Big Ten Tournament. Ohio State is still alive for a No. 1-seed with a win against Indiana and a Michigan State loss on Sunday at Wisconsin.
  • Why the Spartans are no lock to beat the Badgers yet, despite being a big favorite at the Kohl Center this weekend.

On the Friday edition, Kyle will preview the Big Ten finale against Indiana and the various seeding scenarios for the Buckeyes.
