Living here in St. Louis, I was paying close attention to Zeke's recruitment.  I had a great feeling he would become a Buckeye, despite the late push from Mizzou.  It would have been a very hard choice for him to make with Mizzou parents. Living here all his life.  He has exceeded what I imagined he would become.  I love that his parents are now ambassadors for tOSU.  He seems like a great and humble kid. 

I remember texting a Mizzou friend "all Buckeye" once he made his announcement.  I had no idea at the time just how great a Buckeye he would become!

Me too Allinosu.  What a great mental image.  I told the dozen or so people I had over at my home bar about that last night.  Good stuff.

How great would that be... Tom goes to Houston and kicks butt for 4 or 5 years decades, and then when Urbz has had enough, slides right back in

There.  Fixed it for you!

"The Buckeyes forced 20 turnovers and looked particularly potent with Anthony Lee at the "five," aggressively hedging screens while chasing guards around the perimeter."

I'm willing to roll with anyone but Amir. He continues to have the worst and weakest hands in the game and most of the time plays with the intensity of a sea slug.  I agree with Dan Dakish when he asserts that Amir's bad attitude and lack of energy impact the rest of the team.

All class.  Thanks and best of luck at Houston Tom.

One more win first though please!

This is going to be a LONG year.  We are clearly 2 teams based on the level of talent we face:

1.  We have more talent than the opponent -   Result?  Domination.  It is rarely close.

2.  We have equal or lesser talent - Result?  We get exposed defensively with open men on the baseline for easy hoops and we rely on our outside shooting, which at times gets cold and we dig a hole, which we never are able to dig ourselves out of. 

Until we get a decent big man, we are going to get hammered.  Amir is Amir.  We have to accept that at this point.  He looks like he should be dominant, but it's an illusion.  We also need to abandon this 2-3 zone idea.  Amir is a total weak link and the defense busts often.  Thad has a problem with this team.

With Amir as our best big guy and if we continue this zone defense experiment, the ceiling on this team is very low. 

That said, while we won't beat (m)any good teams this year, we won't lose to any bad ones #michigansucks!!!!

My die-hard Nebraska friend agrees with Pelini in this.  Apparently the things Pelini said about the administration at Nebraska are pretty accurate.  I fear they got the "yes man" they wanted with Mike Riley.  Nine wins a year may be dream season for them moving forward.  As for Pelini, I hope he and the Vest tear it up at YSU.
