I was expecting a single digit ranking, but I guess that is what ya get when you dont take care of teams you should. Still alright though, cracked the top ten and able to close out a tough road game. Nothing is easy in the B1G

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

Agree, but the only team we 'shoulda' taken care of was Duke.
Truth is that Illinois kicked the crap out of us, and Kansas did also.

yea, I am still shocked at that Illinois game..... I was beyond upset, it was terrible, haha

We got everything we need this week to make an impression on the country.  2-0 this week puts us in top 5 and #1 seed talk begins!

We're getting into the most difficult part of our schedule now with 5 of 9 remaining games being against ranked teams plus the always nearly impossible @ Wisconsin game. If they can go 6-3 or better, the Buckeyes will be in very good shape
I really hope we can pick up a big win @ Michigan and/or @ Indiana

Really surprised Wisky still isn't ranked. Pretty sure they would finish top 2 or 3 in the SEC.

Probably has something to do with the fact that they have 0 quality OOC wins and have lost 3 of their last 5. They don't deserve to be ranked at all.

Rough waters ahead this week. Probably not a popular statement, but 0-2 this week should be expected.We need post play to step up this week or we don't have a chance. Also, is it apparent to all that DT is wearing down? He looked tired again at Nebraska and shot that way too.

had similar thoughts....I guess we will see for ourselves this week.  I think it's a long season and he might have hit a bump in the road.  Out of our past 4 games the only "big" matchup was Wisky and he had maybe his best game as a buckeye vs them, so it might be a matter of being excited (or lack their of) vs Penn St, Nebraska, etc

It's a game planning issue also.  Both opponents put a form of box and one on him.  He had to fight so hard to even get the ball that he was exhausted once he received it.  I was encouraged that we were able to adjust and find the mismatch (L Smith).

TSUN still a top 3 team?  Really?  Wow.

Class of 2010.
