I understand the doubt.  Against teams with elite athletes, silk had some trouble getting his own shots.  There aren't too many scrubs in the NBA....but quite a few won't play D.   I think we've seen it with the Villain and similarly with Sully.  NBA men are bigger, faster and stronger, and that advantage in athleticism (or hoops IQ) evaporates pretty quickly.

I'm hoping for the best.  It would be great for Matta going forward on the recruiting trail....but another OSU bust could be troubling.

He could have taken off 5 feet further back and still had room to spare.  It's easy to forget his insane athleticism, when his brute force is so often required to be on display.  It would have been great to watch him in the pre- Jordan rules days.

Thank Woody that we have people who understand that buildings have immense capacity to help maintain traditions that are profoundly important to the maintenance of our dear, but ultimately "tribal" rituals.  Major league baseball, for the most part, has learned that lesson way too late.  I think NASCAR is just now figuring it out.  M*chigan's last AD didn't "get it"...and he's out on his ear, where such idiots belong.  So happy to be part of Buckeye Nation...my tribe!

I have never watched a game that turned so dramatically after one hit.  Jones had zero confidence...and probably fewer teeth after that hit.  Buckeyes rolled from there on.

MSU is frequently a bad match-up for us, especially when our team is as soft as this year's squad.  They foul every possession, turn the game into a rugby scrum and dare the refs to call everything.  It's a great strategy against a team like this one, that, aside from 6'4"(?) Tate has little energy on the boards and would rather not play MSU's brutal style of hoops.  Russell's great, but he clearly doesn't hold up well against physical teams...it's best just to beat him up.

I'm still angry with Herbstreit for

1) His god awful performance at *ichigan in 1993 when I sat frozen and hungover in the South endzone of the Big outhouse attempting to not punch everyone in the face, while Herbie tossed pass after pass to dudes in ugly helmets

2) Still don't know why he voted us  Ohio State (12 -1)  9th in the 2010 final AP poll behind a few 2-loss teams and even one 3-loss team.  Only he and Fowler of all the voters voted us that low.  We finished 5th.  

I'm still with TP.  Something seems to have broken in him while Pryor was there.  Troll me all you want.  I'd take Spielman in the booth any day over Mr. Frosted Tips....props to his dad though.

We'll need a name for these guys...mad bombers or something.  They're going to jack up a ton of 3's.  So glad that Sam Thompson's 3 ball is coming into shape.  Our interior defense still looks slow and I think we'll have trouble matching up with big teams  - rebounding will become an issue, but I'm excited about the season.  It's going to be a great ride.

Thanks.  Thank you very much.  Proud to be a Buckeye and a loyal 11Wer.

Love the interview!  Thanks for being a great Buckeye!  That '01 game in AA is one of my all time favorites.  It's cool how J Wells keeps that Buckeye love in his heart.  He'll always be welcome back in Cbus.  It's a pity that some of the local players pass on that special bond with their home team - and here comes a guy from 1000 miles away who "got it".
