Try taking a charge against Bosa. That would be absolutely terrifying.

Russell, Loving, KBD, Tate, and yank Giddens out of class at Oak Hill

Comment 19 Feb 2015

I love the basket buckeyes. They are frustrating to watch at times for sure. It's a shame Russell doesn't have the same weapons around him that a Tyus Jones does.

If Russell is on fire the sky is the limit. But when he struggles it gets dicey. It was nice to see that Sam and Shannon both stepped up in the Sparty game. If you want to blame anyone for the Purdue and MSU losses, blame Mr. Loving

Jerry Palm always hates on OSU, he looks like Jaws from the James Bond movies so just do what everyone else does and look away.

OSU has work to do if they want a better tournament seed, but Palm has always been negative towards OSU. He's a Purdue alum so I really hope we destroy them in the rematch in Columbus.

Man needs 2 tickets/ seats just for himself so he purchases 2 Coke Zeros, nicely donates one of the Cokes to the person behind him. "The Michigan Difference"

Losing to Penn State would be pretty awful. Hope we can win this one as expected and then go take one in East Lansing this weekend (especially with Draymond Green running his mouth)

The only game they should lose is that Wisconsin game. Home court advantage be damned, MSU just lost to Illinois at home. Michigan plays hard but OSU should win that game.

I'm hoping for another "Deal With It" game against Wisconsin where OSU hits 14/15 from behind the arc. I can dream right?

Fantastic 30 for 30. 

I was born in 1988, it would have been fascinating to be of age during this time; In the US that is, not the Soviet Union.

Disclaimer, I'm very happy because it looks like KBD could fill in nicely for Marc Loving and that means we are not dead yet for making a nice tourney run. Also, watching Russell is a privilege, he is incredible.

I think we also, though, have to look at how the seniors "played." Shannon Scott 1-4 from the field, 1-4 at the free throw line for 3 points. Sam Thompson went 2 for 8 from the field, missing all non-dunk shots. 

I believe that with Russell on our team we have a chance to win any game we play. And I'm sure the seniors play their hardest but damn.

Comment 08 Feb 2015

I saw a tweet that said there's going to be 20+ NBA scouts on hand to watch Russell

Let's hope he drops 50

But yes, as Optimistic said above, if we lose this game we can probably book our NIT tickets in advance

It really is frustrating that we have (currently) the #2 projected draft pick in the NBA and we are getting close to being a bubble team.

We're REALLY going to need Kam Williams to step up. Russell is human after all, he can't be unconscious every night. Against Purdue is the first time in several games where he has struggled a bit but what can you do, somebody has to score points.
