    OSU/Wisconsin B-ball sunday---are you psyched?

    Ok, even though Wisconsin spit the bit on Tuesday against Michigan State and the Bucks almost gagged against PSU tonite...who is jacked up about the OSU vs. Wisconsin game on Sunday--this is definitely the biggest game for OSU hoops since well, errr, uhhh last year, I guess...anyone going??? anyone making plans for the game?? Just a C-Bus poster who is wondering...

    Can't wait for the game...I will be there as every other home game this season. The crowd tonight was pretty loud trying to pick the Bucks up so I think it will be a crazy atmosphere Sunday. No matter who won and lost this week, it's still #1 vs. #2 with a Bucks win clinching their second straight Big 10 title.

    I was at the Penn St. game tonight. It was a bit of a stinker. But you know what? I'm more down on the crowd than I am the team. Here we have a team who's #1 in the nation...playing for a Big Ten title...and people were not making noise. It was pathetic.

    I sat in the front row (not the seats right on the floor, but the row right behind them) and I had an usher come over to me during play and tell me to sit down because the people behind me were not able to see. Good grief!

    But I still had fun. Hey, the Bucks won. And yes, I'm pumped for Sunday's game. Do you know it's the first time in Big Ten history that #1 has faced #2? Pretty cool.

    BTW, OSU has to win this game if they want a #1 seed in the tourney, IMO.

    In basketball... of course they had a #1 vs. #2 game a few months ago in another sport!

    Isn't it pretty amazing that the football team played in three 1 vs. 2 games this year and now the B-ball team is playing in the Big Ten's first ever 1 vs. 2.

    I'll say this, though...the Bucks are going to have to play a lot better Sunday than they did last night.

    ...and just as time proved those two (in football) weren't really #1 and #2. The same will happen in B-ball.

    This is nothing new at Ohio State. It was happening when I lived in the Columbus area back in the 80's. It happens because a large percentage of season-ticket holders are faculty and staff and they're concentrated on the lower level, thanks to years of season-ticket holding seniority. Faculty and staff have been proven through university research to be 20x less likely to paint their faces scarlet or raise their voices during games.

    Actually, having been at every home game since Christmas and a few before, I thought it was one of the louder crowds which is pathetic. Other than the MSU game, Tennessee (at the end), and maybe Purdue towards the end, the crowds have been terrible. And I do think it's terrible all of the older season ticket holders that won't stand and get into the game.

    Thad has voiced his opinion to have the students down in the lower bowl all around like at Duke and many, many students have wanted to do this for awhile but the season ticket holders refuse to give up their precious seats and then they don't get into games. I'm in the upper deck and while I will yell, it just seems silly for me to stand up or constantly yell because I'm so far away, who will hear me anyways? I yelled and got more into games during high school than I do OSU games because I was actually close enough that I felt yelling would make a difference. With all of the students in the upper deck, there really isn't even much point in screaming ourselves hoarse because it's not even too loud with the way the Schott is set up.

    On Wisconsin! (though my money would be on OSU... don't tell Bucky)
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    It would be better if Wisconsin wasn't coming in off a loss, that takes a little luster off of it, but I'm still looking forward to the game.

    OSU as the #1 team in the nation faced the #2 team in the nation (Michigan) for the Big 10 championship in football. Now OSU as the #1 team in the nation is facing the #2 team in the nation for the Big 10 championship in basketball. I wonder if that's ever happened before? If it has, was the #1 team the same school in both football and basketball?

    I don't want to be negative but, do any of us "really" see Ohio State beating Wisconsin? Still should be a great game to see.
