    OSU's lack of depth can be a good thing because they won't have to give minutes to poor players. Its all about match ups, and if OSU gets a good draw, hopefully they can skate buy until the sweet 16. If they draw an up and down, pressing, up tempo team they may be in trouble in the 2nd game.
    Good points. They better not get into foul trouble either. If I'm playing against OSU, I'm going after Turner early trying to get him to pick up a couple quick cheapies...

    I hate zones with a passion. But I think the zone allows Turner to stay away from cheap fouls. It also helps that everyone in their starting lineup is 6'5" or above and are good are rebounding from their positions.

    Can not believe Turner just did that. Just one upped Da'Sean Butler.

    because at the end of the day, they still are the Chicago Cubs, and they will figure out a way to screw this whole thing up--Marty B.

    Another tough win today, hoping for a one seed and an easy weekend next week now, they are going to be tired.

    I did not realize until reading about what people were saying regarding "depth" or a lack of it in Ohio States case, I think what you are pointing to is showing.

    I'm still not too sure about this whole #1 seed discussion. OSU's RPI going into the weekend was 29 and I'm yet to find a team with an RPI ranking any worse than 7th getting a 1 seed. Also, I don't think it will improve too much with wins over Michigan, Illinois, and potentially Minnesota. In fact, they are behind MSU, Purdue and Wisconsin in the conference.

    OSU will be a #2 seed now that Duke has made the ACC tourney championship. The only chance OSU could get a #1 was if Duke lost before the championship game. I just hope they end up with the Friday/Sunday games to get an extra days rest.

    The guys on ESPN radio this morning were giving the nod to tOSU over Syracuse for the last #1. The argument was that you can't back into a #1 seed, with two straight losses. It really wouldn't matter because the pairing of Ohio State/Syracuse will be the lowest one, and the highest two, should tOSU win today. So they will be in the same region anyway.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Why does Ed Hightower have to be the ref in every OSU game. He has to be the worst official in all sports.

    Ohio State looking tired so far today.

    Agree on the Hightower part. I bet that guy blows his whistle at the hotel during breakfast.
