    Re: Sounds like Oden will return.

    A buddy of mine at work (and I have no idea who his source is) told me that he heard Oden, Conley, and Cook were all leaving early for the NBA. Again, I have no idea where he heard this, but that's what he told me this morning.

    Bottom line: I'm not sure you can trust anything until you hear it from the players.

    Wow that would be outstanding for my Hoosiers. And I'd like to see the Pacers get a shot to draft Mike Conley, they need a point guard.

    A buddy of mine at work who knows the janitor at the University of Florida said that his brother is the janitor at the Columbus Arts League and he knows the janitor at one of the Starbucks in Columbus and that guys brother is a freshman who lives in the next dorm over from Oden and he says he has no idea whats going to happen here.

(God, I hate this type of "my source knows better than your source" crap because more often than not, these type of posts I'm making are full of crap. . . . so take it for what it's worth.)

    Look at his rep then think about the source.

    Oden AND Conley are both leaving. take it to the bank. If your surprised at Conley leaving just look at his situation, exactly how can he improve his draft stock by staying?

    Chip - Puffy's post wasn't very funny so that makes your post, posted a half an hour later, even less funny.

    I apologize if my original post started this. I just wanted to post that I did hear (from OSU fans I work with) that they had heard all 3 of those guys were leaving. Sorry that my posting that caused what followed.

    I heard they were staying when I said it out loud. Trust me, the guy I heard it from is as credible as it gets.

    Re: Sounds like Oden will return.

    I had a dream last night that Oden and the rest left for the NBA, and that Matta recruited an even better team for next year and that all the anti-Ohio State rebel rousers had to have therapy………

    Huh, I had a similar dream, except mine went one step further where OSU was found to have done some illegal recruiting. Wierd.

    Back on topic, I hope they do what's best for them. If they think staying school will help them grow as people then that's great and I hope they do it. But if not, take the money and grow as players, or at least get paid, and get your education as you go along.

    Perhaps not, but a negative - 55 is reaching uncharted territory, I do believe.
