    Florida just destroyed Ohio State

    Final score 86-60. Wonder if OSU will stop playing them now?

    Florida's the best team I've seen since the 96-98 Kentucky teams. That was an unbelieveable final 17 minutes from them.

    Great game by the Gators. They just didn't miss shots, played solid D, and didn't allow any second chance buckets.

    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.

    Yes, I'm sure this is an early Christmas present to shut up all those arrogant Buckeye fans.

    Wonder why I didn't think of that?

    Obviously one game means more to some who find winnng difficult to experience vs the rest of us who are use to our teams winning.

    I said essentially the same thing in another thread because this one hadn't been started yet. Yup, the Buckeyes got schooled, but Billy Packer said one thing right all day--UNC and tOSU are both young teams, so that road matchup at this time of year was different for the Bucks than this one against a more experienced team. Throw in what had to be better than 70% shooting in the second half and they're looking for the license number. I would imagine this game will be used as a motivator for this group for quite some time.

    Florida clearly plays at a higher level than Ohio State and was by far the better team.

    Ohio State has a lot of improving to do if they are going to beat good teams. Easy to look good and get a faulty read beating weak teams, they found out today that they are not good, Florida showed them what good is.

    Right now, it looks like Ohio State's best non-conference win is going to be UC, which has a bit of twisted irony to it. If I was an Ohio State fan, I'd be rooting hard for Wisconsin to be a dominant team. They at least have two cracks against Wisconsin to put up a great win.

    They have a game against Tennessee, who is about ready to crack the top 25. But it is looking like another soft Big 10 year. The way they have looked with Oden, they need to get their bearings anyhow. They have no rhythm on offense and the guards have stopped defending anybody on the perimeter.

    They'll have another shot at a decent NC win Jan-13 vs. the Vols. Lofton sure went off today.

    You saved me tons of typing. I love our team, think they have a great talent level and broight future, but I have never ever bought into us having a ranking anywhere near Florida's at this time. I thought there was a chance we could play with the Gators but those first several shots needed to fall like they did against UNC. Oden definitely had not had to face the type of bigs at this level that he did today.

    Florida has sure done an excellent job of making that gymnasium an extremely intimidating and loud fixture for visiting opponents.
