Re: Buckeye hoops
They are a young, dangerous team, but the win over Illinois is not really an upset, considering Penn State beat Illinois on their home floor today. Illinois just isn't very good, and watching Bruce Weber's constipated look at the crappy players he recruited is kinda nice.
I didn't get to see today's game thanks to the ongoing Big 10 Network vs. Time Warner dispute, but it seems like Butler is just about able to play any role they need him to. Today, they needed him to play pure point guard after putting up 32 on the road to take over the game Thursday. The Big 10 only looks to have three other good teams in MSU, Wisconsin, and Indiana, so the Buckeyes should finish in the top half of the conference and go to the NCAA as about 5-7 seed.
