PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Sounds like we won't be getting him.. per Dave Telep he's hearing Duke... but I suppose we won't know for sure until he announces...
It's 8:45 and still no word on Hood's decision. Damn, starting to think he might push it back further....
7:45 in Mississippi, but yeah, dude's never seemed to be in a hurry to make this decision.
Watch him push the date back further.
It wouldn't surprise me.
He is Duke all of the way...not sure what this is but I have little doubt he is going Duke
Hearing he is calling coaches now, so should hear something soon
Duhh duhh duhhhhh!!
AHHHHH the suspense is killing me
Watch Adrian Baker commit to OSU before Hood makes the decision.
I wont be able to sleep without hearing some type of news lol
Guessing the decision will come tonight
Heard that before...haha
let's just be patient...whenever it happens it happens...no sense getting antsy/nuts over when a 19 year old's decision will be when you know it has to come soon....I'm sure we'll find out today or in the next few days
But Alex, the suspense is killing us!

Damn this Rodney Hood diva is taking his sweet time to make a decision. Getting real tired of this crap.
^ Guy isn't a diva because he hasn't made his decision yet...... its not his job to appease you.

Ok big guy
Seems like the talk surrounding Hood has evaporated. Any news on this guy?
Take is easy, we'll find out when we find out.
I know there's a game saturday, and my ass will be there.
Why has he not decided yet?
Capn, Make It So...
Because he's a 19 year old trying to figure out where he will most enjoy his time and get the best preparation for a career in the NBA.
I think the longer he waits, the better it is for OSU, because his most recent visit was to Duke -- the luster may be starting to wear off a little & his heart may be in Cbus.

He hasn't decided because he doesn't have to. Let him take his time. This is a pretty big decision and a very difficult one. Let's not get frustrated with him because he's not picking fast enough for our sake.
I know that this is a big decision and he has every right to take his time, but it is a little awkward that he set a decision date and we still haven't heard ANYTHING about him.
I believe he is waiting to hear from Duke's admissions department and if he gets I and his credits transfer, he'll be a Blue Devil. OSU is plan B. Just speculation on my part.
@ROCK, far fetched as it may be, it's certainly plausible
Dave Biddle just tweeted... "As (many) expected, Mississippi State transfer Rodney Hood has selected #Duke over #OhioState."
Well, I would've loved to have Hood at OSU, but I can't say I blame a kid for choosing to play at Duke and for Coach K.
I wish he was eligible to play this year so we could have shown him what the correct decision should have been when we visit Duke on November 28th.
^^ Agreed. Wish the best of luck to this guy, but I hope we kick Duke's #$@ this year while he watches the game and wishes he had chosen OSU.
That'd be pretty funny if he requests another transfer if we beat Duke. Can you even do that?
He was more of a luxury anyway. We have Smith Jr., Thompson, Ross, and Loving possibly as the wings in 2013 already.
