This is awesome.
Bittersweet day. D'Angelo Russell's last game as a Buckeye but also Amir Williams' last game as a Buckeye.
Stats lie about this team. I would be shocked if they win tonight let alone reach the conference tournament final.
Maybe a loss tonight is good? Because I have a real strong suspicion that we will be matched up against a team from northern Kentucky (UC or Xavier) next Thursday in Louisville. The winner will of course play Kentucky.
I think Minnesota takes us out on Thursday night. Team plays like garbage away from home.
The past two years have been painful to watch. I think the four seniors are pretty likable guys, but good riddance. I have been watching Buckeye hoops since the Jay Burson days and Amir Williams is the worst/least improved player I can recall. Maybe not just for Ohio State but the entire Big 10.
Problems run far deeper though than him. If this team makes the tournament, they are one-and-done. How is a team so horrendous away from home?
Yes! Was hoping they'd have the Cardale Jones tackle against Illinois on there. Love seeing those blocks from 84 Lumber as well.
Russell is probably the best basketball player who has ever played for Ohio State. I heard a comparison earlier in the season to Manu Ginobli. He's incredible.
The seniors - much like Aaron Craft this past year - have regressed.
Miami is the worst city in America. Every horrible person you know aspires to live in Miami, Fla.
This is a bad, bad match-up for Ohio State. Our bigs are horrendous borderline completely worthless. Unless Dr. 0 goes for 30-plus, we lose.
The line on this game was -7. Luckily for me, I was in Vegas for the 9 a.m. kick off. What a great day that turned out to be.
Probably didn't throw Andy Ginther up there because he's Mayor Mike's preferred replacement. Nah. Probably not.
Michigan hosted college basketball "Gameday" today lol.
Bring home a freaking win. I went last year and that walk back to our hotel was VERY VERY VERY cold after the game.
Ohio State just didn't get the help it needed this year. West Virginia couldn't knock off TCU and Florida State won four or five games it had no business winning. Oregon's not losing to Arizona and Missouri's not beating Alabama. Curious as to how Missouri is in SEC title game? They didn't play Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Mississippi, Mississippi State or Texas A&M. Georgia would have at least been competitive with Alabama.
A win puts us in the Cotton Bowl against Baylor. That would be a lot of fun.
This is awesome.
The Florida State game is incredibly important to Ohio State.
If FSU loses, Ohio State likely makes playoff if they win out.
SEC - 1 team
PAC 12 - 1 team
Big 10 - 1 team
Big 12 - 1 team
I like the quality of the noon games this week. Notre Dame wins outright against Florida State. This is very similar to their win over Oklahoma in 2012.
I'll be out in Las Vegas. 9 a.m. kick! I get out there on Friday night though, so it's not like I'll be adjusted to the time change. It will still feel like noon to me.
I lived in Key West for two years. Amazing little town. Make sure to check out the Green Parrot on Southard Street (obviously) and the best food can be found at Mangia, Mangia.
FYI ... this schedule site is freaking amazing. I've looked at it probably 50,000 times in the past three years:
Hottest chicks: Little Bar
Most looking to score-iest older chicks: Varsity Club
Eh kinda girls: Out-R-Inn
Drunk college girls who will let you buy you drinks and maybe take you home: The O Patio
Best setting late night/hot college girls: Big Bar rooftop patio
These are the top five bars to attend after an Ohio State home game. All on campus.
I got a really sweet scarlet shirt and I'm sitting in section 24c so I'll be wearing scarlet.
"Between Sugar Bar 2 and Charlie Bear, are there any worse bars in America, let alone Columbus?"
The five worst bars in Columbus:
1. Sushi Rock
2. Bar 23
Nick Swisher was an awesome guy at Ohio State. Nice as can be as a student and athlete.
Always felt bad that Pat Chun had to work under Steve Snapp, who was the absolute worst.
