Definitely not the toughest competition but I’d rather win than lose. Guessing we’ll have a much better idea about this team after the Gonzaga game.
True. And it's not just the Gonzaga game either - the rest of the PK80 tournament will be either Stanford or Florida, then after that another game against decent opposition...and the next three post-PK80 games are Clemson, Wisconsin, and TTUN.
That six-game gauntlet will really let us know where this team stands how realistically we can think March Madness - 3-3 or better with this young of a team would be a really, *really* good sign for the rest of the season. But even something like 2-4 or 1-5 wouldn't be horrible as long as the losses aren't cover-your-eyes ugly.
Yeah, thanksgiving night at MIDNIGHT....so fkn stupid that this game is on so late. FU NCAA/NETWORKS!!!
Love the game over any team fandom.
As a night owl, I love it.
6:59 in the AM tipoff IST!
Looks like the team is responding quite nicely to the new coach. Go Bucks!!
Priority #1: Beat Michigan
KBD is pretty solid....hoping to see Musa, K. Wesson, Tate and CJ help contribute as well. If we can do that, I feel like we have a shot to play well this year.
Thursday night will be the true tell for the Buckeyes...but who knows!
Pretty sloppy second half but damn were we good in the first. Btw i hope potter is okay updates would be appreciated!!
whats a michigan?
Sprained ankle for Potter. Holtmann said his status is day-to-day.
hope he heels up
It's good to see them winning, but when I see other scores go by on the bottom of the screen there are a lot of schools absolutely crushing the weak competition right now. It will be interesting to see how good this team actually is once we face better competition.
And Michigan State as of right now.
Get dumped then
Gonzaga beat Texas Southern by close to 30 opening game for them at home.
I forgot about the game. Great to see a better FT % than last year seemed.
Good win. Like the <10 turnovers.
Also, BTN plus money grab is bs.
That's 3 games this year that have been BTN Plus only. Total bummer.
Once a Buckeye, Always a Buckeye
It's particularly frustrating because we have so many young players and a new coach that I want to see in action.
Good to see OSU doing what it should be, crushing inferior opponents. This team seems to have a lot of play makers and 4-5 can go off on any night and get 15-20 points. That's a big luxury to have. Can't wait for the Gonzaga game, is it actually going to be televised for us basic poors that don't have big ten plus
Zags and Clemson both appear to be on the deuce.
I just wish "the ocho" was a real thing. Time to watch Dodgeball again.
Northeastern feeling those 1st half blues
Go get'em Cal Poppy - we are behind you !!
It's not a rivalry .............. it's a wreckoning.
from comfortable home 'welcoming' a mid bi-directional traveling from the west coast overnight... to a giant killer lying in wait at midnight on the left coast...
...quick way to find out what happens to the turkey!
Solid effort, even if the Huskies were taxed.
Encouraged by the inside play right now, and the Buckeyes will need to continue to build upon that.
I'm not around that much, running exhausted and lost...
KBD and Jaesean balled out today!
The boys played very well overall but we have u somehow get better at threes. We need good shooting Kam to return.
Let’s keep it rolling! This team will go as far as Tate and Keita takes them!
It is great to see the team back on an upward trend. They will have their struggles as Coach gets the talent he needs and the young players grow up but the way they have played shows a very promising future.
2 things to keep in mind :
a) This is the best team we have battled yet (not a good team but the best of the bunch).
b) Vegas spread was 11,5 so we more than covered. Pomeroy spread was 8 wich we also covered easily. Those are two "non biased" indicators. We started at number 78 in KP and are now after 4 games at 67... Don't get me wrong, this does not mean we will go undefeated or make the big dance but we are way better than excepted. KP give us a 26% chance of winning against the Zags (spread being +7). I'm pretty sure i would have had a way lower percengage had i had been asked before the season.
Appreciate the added details here.
One thing I think is sure, and that is this TEAM will not embarrass us . I think they will fight for loose balls, rebounds, and pass more than last yr.
We may even shoot a better FT %.
So you’re saying there’s a chance
are the fans starting to attend ?
or is it still football season ?
what is the attendance ?
Amazing game from Tate, even against terrible competition. As I said it is against terrible competition so I'm taking it with a grain of salt, but this team is playing better than expected. Diop is a beast, Jallow is promising, and Potter looks improved(hope he stays healthy). And for all the smack scUM people were talking about accepting Dakich being a bad thing since he could get minutes there, he looks pretty useful as bPG with little behind Jackson. Combine that with the veteran presence he seems to provide for the team, and he was a good transfer pickup.
