The rankings show Ohio State is undefeated and No. 2 and 3 in the country. They also say the Buckeyes have played a weak schedule. Even head coach Thad Matta said he doesn’t know how good his team is.
“I’ve asked myself that question about a hundred times a day. That’s one of the hardest parts of coaching because there are so many ups and downs throughout the season,” Matta said. “A lot of times you need to hit both and see the response. Do you embrace success or wilt under pressure when things aren't going well?”
The eye test says Ohio State is one of the top teams in the country. It’s elite defensively and more than adequate on offense. Every win has come by double digits and 30-point victories aren’t a rarity.
