Just keep improving and getting the wins. The rest will take care of itself.

OSU winning games but staying in the same spot or dropping? Where have I seen his before?

The Schott better be rocking on Saturday... but I think my expectations are a bit too high.

It's a beautiful day in Columbus, Ohio... and TTUN still sucks.

Just as long as the fans are not knitting in the first row again.

The AP poll is relatively useless in basketball other than being ranked in it.  Just keep winning the games they should and a few they shouldn't and the Buckeyes will be fine.

Exactly. Having a ranking is important because it keeps you on the ticker but it doesn’t really matter where you’re ranked. All Top25 team schedules and scores are plastered on the front page with #’s 1-25 all treated the same (except for Duke).

Just keep a ranking, any ranking, and finish in the top tier of the Big10. Secure solid seeding for the dance and make a nice run in the tourney.

You do realize that every B1G team makes the B1G Tourney, right?

So yeah this is an example of what down votes are not for guys. Either he didn't know, in which case chill out, or he's being sarcastic, in which case upvote for you sir!

They just need to stay in the top 25 so it's easier to check the score.

Big Ten with 7 teams in this week's AP top 25. Sure tOSU did drop a spot, but it doesn't matter, their Big Ten schedule is going to be very tough this season. I'm very sure Holtmann will keep this team grounded and disciplined and sustain the intensity and energy. In Holtmann we trust.

We're still sitting at the grownups table, sandwiched between Kentucky and North Carolina.  Just keep winning and all will be fine.

At least Ohio's state abbreviation isn't a synonym for lube!

Meh, 1 spot in rankings that ultimately don't mean much until the very end.  The front half of our post-NYE BIG schedule is a tough one, with 5 of our next 7 games against likely tourney teams (and a bubble team in Purdue), so that will really show where we are as a team.

HS

It doesn't mean much even AT the end. As you said, the games over the next few weeks will tell us (and the Tourney selection committee) a lot.

As I have stated several times, I am hopeful to finish above .500, and would love to see 20 wins. This is an incredibly tough schedule to come out of with much better for our Buckeyes. I then hope our guys make the dance! Ohio State is over matched in several ways - yet one is NOT coaching and another is NOT effort! I will take that and enjoy every time! 

I would rather be on hand with 10 men then elsewhere with 10,000 - Timur Lenk
