As a person that was raised a Buckeye and graduating a Wildcat, I have watched both teams pretty closely all year.  I feel that this is Calipari's deepest and most talented team he's had at UK. The 2009-2010 squad was good with Wall, Cousins, Bledsoe, Miller, and Patterson, but they rarely cracked the bench that season.  Whereas this year Calipari runs a very balanced 6-7 man rotation with Teague, Doron Lamb, Kidd-Gilchrist/Miller, Jones/Wiltjer, and Davis.

The only favorable match-up I see for OSU is at PG because I think Craft is a far superior/more consistent PG than Teague. Sully should be able to balance out Davis. I don't think Thomas is good enough defensively to shut down Jones. Buford can handle Miller, but Kidd-Gilchrist might be a little too athletic for him. Doron Lamb is an underrated defender and UK's best pure shooter, so I'm not sure how Lenzelle can keep up.

In order for the Bucks to have a shot at beating them, Davis needs to be in foul trouble early like he was in both Indiana games.  Also Craft needs to absolutely manhandle Teague for a full 40 minutes and completely mess up the flow of UK's offense while staying out of foul trouble. IF OSU can do that then UK is no more than an average tournament team.  Probably wouldn't hurt if Buford shows up and knocks down some perimeter shots.

I don't know much about Ed Warinner, but the ND fan base seems to regard him favorably. When ND's former OC Charley Molnar left this season to be the HC at UMass, Warinner was apparently in the running to be the next OC but Brian Kelly went with the DB coach Chuck Martin instead.

What is confusing, is that Nebraska is claiming that Warinner is coming to them not tOSU.

I am a little confused with the additional title of Asst. Head Coach as well, I was under the impression that Luke Fickell was going to serve in that capacity along with co-DC.

I know that Urban said in that past the Fickell is going to call the defense, how does Withers being the Asst. HC change this previous statement?  Basically, when the two of them have a conflicting view... who makes the final call for the defense? Withers or Fickell?

Also whatever happened to Tim Brewster coming in as TE coach?

Logically, I want Fickell to take the Pitt job and get some head coaching experience and return one day. Emotionally, I want him to stay because he completely embodies what I view as a true Buckeye through-and-through.
