Ohio State football podcast: Familiar Buckeyes offense returns, defense disappears

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, Austin Ward joins Kyle Lamb to further inspect the Buckeyes’ 55-24 beating at the hands of Iowa on Saturday.

Among the topics discussed on the latest edition is the disappointing performance by the defense, the over-reliance on J.T. Barrett as a passer, lack of touches for J.K. Dobbins and how fair it is to expect more from the Ohio State program.

Other topics discussed on Inside the Shoe Tuesday include:

  • A dreadful performance for the Ohio State linebackers on Saturday and whether coach Urban Meyer was trying to be gentle when he pulled punches when asked about the unit during his Monday press conference.
  • An unusual no-show from the Buckeyes’ defensive line against Iowa.
  • Whether it’s fair to expect more from the Buckeyes, including a comparison to the success of Alabama under Nick Saban.
  • If Barrett’s passing actually regressed on Saturday or if his performance had more to do with an overly aggressive pass attack.
  • Another game where the number of touches for freshman back J.K. Dobbins wound up shockingly on the low side.
  • If Ohio State gave up on the run far too soon on Saturday.
  • A first look at a key Big Ten showdown this Saturday, where the Michigan State Spartans, currently a 15-point underdog, invade Columbus in a game that likely could decide the East Division participant in the Big Ten title game.

On the Inside the Shoe podcast on Wednesday, Land of 10’s Ryan Ginn will help put the Iowa discussion to rest and begin looking ahead to the Spartans.
