    They didn’t look too bad, but that Carr kid from Minnesota played out of his mind and OSU couldn’t level him out.

    Dude had a game where everything he threw up went in. Honestly it was just one of those nights you have throughout the season, where one player just goes off, and there isn't much you can do.

    I thought there were some curious calls, but those tend to happen from time to time. It was a tough physical game in which Minnesota tended to get the breaks.

    Oh well, OSU is good, I don't think they are #1 good.

    What a weak 5th foul call on Kaleb Wesson. Cal's constant whining paid off.

    I cannot believe how quite this thread is as the BASKETBALL Buckeyes are in the top 5 and moving up. Oh well,

    D.J. Carton got 15 points and five rebounds off the bench in Saturday's 71-65 victory over Kentucky. The Buckeyes own four wins over top-40 KenPom teams.

    OSU is far from the most talented team in the nation, but that doesn't mean they can't be the best.

    Holtmann is a master when it comes to a game plan. He tends to give OSU an game plan advantage for every game.

    They defend, hard, very hard. They make it difficult on the opposing team without fouling all that much.

    I think their biggest flaw may be the lack of outside shooting. If Washington isn't on, they can struggle from deep, allowing teams to collapse around Wesson and make it difficult.

    I have been watching clips and looking at the numbers the last couple days to see how WVU matches up against Ohio State. They may be more similar than they are different. I actually might describe Ohio State as a little better version of WVU in that they are both deep, long and athletic....and in most games it gives them an advantage. Ohio State clearly is a better shooting team and relies a little more on the 3 pointer than WVU most nights. Both teams rebound well and turn the ball over too much. As I said, in most area's it feels like Ohio State is slightly to moderately better....and the only clear advantages I see for WVU is on the offensive boards and Ohio State does not seem to get many steals which I would not have expected. Just some initial thoughts.

    I haven’t been able to watch the last couple games, so hopefully it’s just been bad games and teams adjusting to OSU. Would be good to get healthy too.

    OSU lacks an elite scorer.

    That may be true. Their shooting is rough right now. They just can't make a shot to save their lives. They will bounce back, but I do think a lot of it rides on Washington playing well again.

    an outsiders thoughts....their entire scheme seems built around Kaleb Wesson, but he is not the most talented player or at least much more talented than 3 or 4 guys. I think the offense would work better if it ran more through the perimeter talent and maybe more motion based in search of the best shot opportunity. Keleb Wesson is a good college player, but there is higher end next level talent on the roster that often appear almost forced to operate as a piece in his shadow.
