I hate the compressed schedule, it messed up my flow of when I watched games. And i am very worried it beat up our players a lot. I know there is "plenty of rest" before the NCAA tourney, but I am not sure that makes up for the wear and tear of the last 2.5 months.

And I'm glad Oden is out here with this team, he deserves to be able to have some fun, continue rebuilding his life, and definitely is a positive influence on the program.

Alright Bucks, let's go. Also definitely want to thank the seniors. Without the buy-in from the older players on this team, Holtmann would never have had the influence he clearly has had this year. It's gonna be hard to see Tate leave, though.

The hard place is the fact that if you give people what they want (occasional games in St. John Arena), that'll only increase their desire for more games played there and likely lead to a decrease in basketball revenue.

But if OSU doesn't sell out the Schott anyway (which is definitely not a guarantee) are they really losing that much money? And OSU could probably charge a few dollars more for a game in a great basketball venue, especially if demand outstripped supply.

I'm definitely  disappointed with last night's result, but I have thought our #8 ranking was a case of "what have you done for me lately" than a true indication of this team's ability. I think that this team is still in great position and can probably make a Sweet 16 run. Talk of a Final Four was clearly premature. If you had told me before the season we would be a potential Sweet 16 team, I would have been ecstatic. 

I still am.

Well, a good QB can throw receivers open by making on time, accurate throws away from the defender.

I think KBD should be on these types of lists. ~20 pts and 9 reb a game is nothing to sneeze at, especially when combined with good defense, which KBD has definitely been playing this year. B1G POY is a lock, now finish strong to make a run for national POY awards!

I have been mostly very happy with Urban's hires over the last 6 seasons. Having assistant coaches who are the best in the business helps with recruiting and hopefully helps with developing creative, effective game plans specific to each opponent. I agree with the commenter above, that egos need to be kept in check and a vision needs to be established.
