Ohio State podcast: Don’t call the Buckeyes overachievers

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Get insight and reaction to Ohio State sports on the Inside the Shoe podcast brought to you by Land of 10. On the latest edition, we reflect on Ohio State’s basketball season after the Buckeyes were eliminated from the NCAA Touranment on Saturday, losing to Gonzaga 90-84. Kyle Lamb explains why Chris Holtmann and his staff may have squeezed every bit of talent and effort out of the Buckeyes, but it doesn’t mean this team overachieved.

Lamb also looks at the highs – and lows – of the NCAA Tournament and the unpredictability. History was set last  weekend when UMBC knocked off Virginia to become the first No. 16 seed to knock off a No. 1 seed in tournament history.

Topics discussed on Inside the Shoe Monday include:

  • A look back at Ohio State’s season-ending loss to Gonzaga and what went wrong for the Buckeyes. Ohio State overcame a 15-0 deficit early in the game and owned a 5-point lead inside the last 5 minutes, but was unable to hold on for the victory.
  • Why this team’s effort, intensity and 25-win season may speak to grit and determination, but it doesn’t necessarily mean they overachieved.
  • Thoughts on the tournament’s many upsets, which includes the entire left side of the bracket where both 1 seeds, both 2 seeds and a 3 seed were all defeated in the first weekend.
  • The future of Ohio State basketball and whether Keita Bates-Diop could return for another season.

This week on the podcast, Austin Ward will check in recapping his experience in Boise, Idaho, while he and Ryan Ginn both discuss the second week of spring football practice.
