At one point when these Buckeyes were 11-1, I was thinking 25-6 record and 2 seed in the Big Dance. I guess that was a wee bit premature. Now I’m projecting a 6-6 finish in the last 12 games (at best), and that’s winning games they are supposed to win, like tonight at Northwestern.
This team is eerily similar to last year’s team. Guard play in the toilet right now and forcing so much on offense. This team is too finesse to truly compete in the B1G. The only really true B1G players are Kyle Young and Andre Wesson. They seem to be the only 110% effort guys on this team, and that’s the kind of effort that the entire team needs night in, night out to consistently win in this league.
