Re: Florida just destroyed Ohio State
I am a huge OSU fan and I did not expect OSU to win this game today unless they played a near perfect game. That did not happen, and actually Florida had the near perfect game.
OSU has been overrated this entire season. They are currently not a Top 5 team. Top 10, probably. Top 15 more likely.
Greg Oden is simply not in game shape yet. It really showed today. He was lumbering up and down the court in the 2nd half and even did not go after a few help blocks that he normally gets. He is also playing left handed. That can not be understated. He can not grip a ball with his right hand. Imagine how much less effective Horford and Noah would be if they were playing Oden with their opposite hand and Oden was 100% healthy.
Also, OSU simply has yet to figure out how to play offense with Oden in the game. At the beginning of the year they played a wide open run and gun game that worked with the team they had at the time.
By the end of the season, OSU will be a #2 seed and will be a very tough out. Teams like Florida, Kansas, UCLA, and North Carolina who have 2 or 3 big men will give OSU fits. Oden simply can not guard all of them.
Matta = Really good
