I went to OSU in the glory days of Larkins Hall, which coincided with Coopers best teams. Freaks at skill positions (Galloway, Glenn, Hoying (State b-ball champ at St. Henry), Ricky Duddly (was b-ball first guy) and a skilled non-skilled position All State b-baller named Orlando Pace...Along with these guys from football, Randy Ayers had been recruiting like a fiend, he signed Jim Jackson, brought in Lawerence Funderburke, McDondonald's All-Americans like Greg Simpson and Derek Anderson.

If you'd played high level college basketball before OSU and went to Larkin's for pickup games you could easily find your self running with, or against these freaks of nature. One game post his ACL injury (I had one 2 years earlier too) I played a game as the opposite point guard against Galloway. We talked about the knees and playing it safe (especially since I was risking little and he had millions coming in a year or 2)...after a bad pass by their team, I had an easy breakaway lay-up, I took my time because I was several steps from the pack and knew knowbody would waste the energy to challenge in a pick-up game. I made the basket but still to this day I remember thinking "nobody is near me" as I was laying the ball up, but as I let the ball go and it banked off the backboard, surprisingly a hand slapped the back board at the top of the square way above the rim...Kinda late but letting me know he almost got me. Who could close that fast, jump that high, and why would they try in a pick-up game, post ACL surgery? Joey Galloway, more athletic than any of them...He and Orlando Pace were great basketballers... made me wonder why they risked injury playing a lot of pick-up at Larkins? One who didn't but just came to watch a lot was Eddie George...he was too cool, and too smart. He watched, laughed and talk smacked with the guys, but never once did I see him even step on the court to play around. Too smart.

My 6 year old son has already developed a taste for Skyline, though it did take him about 4 tries to start liking it. He still says it looks like "poop-noodles".

The great news is, whoever the starting 5 are  could very well lose to the next 5 (back-ups). It's that close at a lot of these positions...Matta HAS to play virtually all is guys early, often until it's clear who can really contribute and be in the rotation come tournament time.

I'm pretty sure Oden was on multiple episodes of Sanford and Son when I was growing up?

So awesome!

a. Blow-up up tight end that was totally focused on you.

b. Locate ball carrier, head up hit right on the  inside hip.

c. Wrap up with arms and drive ball carrier back.

d./bonus. Land on the poor SOB tight end you've already sent crumbling to the ground.
