Olive Garden is all about the breadsticks and salad.  Yes, they have entrees, too, but that's not really what you go for, right?  You can get pretty much any shit thing and get salad and breadsticks.  I can see why kids would want that.  

Skyline isn't that far from campus now - just up Olentangy River Rd by University Village.  

I have to chuckle at Walmart and Chick-Fil-A making these lists.

Definite bright spot on this team.  I've enjoyed watching him play this year.  Still fouls a bit too much, but other than that, he's been much better than last year. 

Last year, I scoffed at him testing the NBA draft waters.  Right now, I would not scoff one bit.

It's hard to say, because you look at the Browns with $50M (!!! nobody else even cracked $40M)...but then you see the Chargers with the lowest carryover, just over $100K...and they were the only team that lost to the Browns this season.

Holy shit I can't believe that just happened.  How do they let Loving get that open at point blank range?  Shit, I'm just glad that they scored on a last possession shot for the win.  Feels like it's been forever since they came through on one of those.

Great win.  It was great to see the guys play their asses off, make the hustle plays, and show the emotion.  You know, the Value City Arena can be pretty electric if it's full and the fans have something to be excited about.  It was that 10-0 run late in the 2nd half that really did it for the guys.  Good to see this team on the right side of execution down the stretch for a change.  They've got a lot of work to do to make a case for the NCAA tournament, but it feels like they've got some momentum now, and that can be a big thing in college basketball.

Depends.  If they want to win the Big Ten or at least get to the NCAA tourney, then yeah, it's panic time.  If they've realized the reality that they aren't that good at this point, they can forget about the NCAA tourney, a B1G title, and that the NIT isn't even a given at this point, then not so much.

Still, though, I think anytime you get your ass handed to you like they did last night, you should be concerned.  Maybe these guys weren't concerned enough since the first three Big Ten losses were competitive games that they lost by a combined 16 points.  Maybe they thought "fix a few things here and there and we'll be alright, those close losses will become wins."  Nope.  Not last night.  Then again, it's not like they fixed anything anyway.  

I think the way they respond to last night, the first time this season that they've really gotten it handed to them this badly, on Sunday, will tell us how the rest of the season goes.  If they can somehow beat Sparty, then at least they can keep slim hopes alive.  If they lose again, then this season is definitely lost (if it isn't already).

Not at all unexpected.  I had to chuckle when my friend who roots for that team texted me about it...said we Buckeye fans can rest easy now.

Yeah, he was a real thorn in our side.

I'll give this team one thing - they don't quit.  With the way the game started, they could've easily lost by 40+.  Yet, there they were, at the last media timeout, only down by 3.  Then, of course, they didn't execute the final 4 minutes, because they almost never fucking do.  They need to be up by like 10 at that point to make me feel good about winning the game.  They should pretend that they're down 10 at the tip, too.  Pretend like it's Minnesota 0, OSU -10.
