It's March, and Buckeye basketball still has something to play for.

Following Ohio State's largest win over Michigan basketball in nearly 20 years, the Eleven Dubcast ponders what the rest of this season may hold for OSU. Johnny and I also discuss the split among fans that already want to see Jake Diebler back as head coach next season, but first recap all the Buckeye-relevant headlines and news from the NFL Combine.

Additionally the Dubcast discussion also covers:

  • The other side of Ohio State's win Sunday showed how dramatically Michigan's basketball program has fallen from grace. Will Warde Manuel put ego aside and finally get rid of Juwan Howard? (Please don't!)
  • Ask Us Anything! — writers to dubcast@elevenwarriors.com this week inquired about many topics, such as which Buckeye should be on the new cover of EA Sports College Football 25?
  • Folks responsible for CFP expansion are now angling for automatic first-round BYEs in favor of the Big Ten and SEC on top of guaranteed spots for other Power 5 conferences. Does this defeat the purpose of expansion to begin with?
  • College football is also considering the adoption of an NFL-style two minute warning. What does this glorified additional ad break say about distinction between the sport's collegiate and professional levels going forward? 
  • The Dubcast mourns the loss of former guest Richard Lewis after his passing last week at age 76. Among several topics of interest in his appearance nearly seven years ago, Lewis mentioned having his ashes spread across the field at The Big House to put a hex on Michigan.

Thank you for tuning in, and make sure to follow the Dubcast on Twitter to stay updated on next week's and all future episodes! Swing by the 11W Dry Goods store in the meantime!
