Big week for OSU hoops, at Michigan Tuesday and a potential #1 Indiana in Columbus next Sunday.
IU plays at Illinois Saturday, so lets hope they come in a big fatigued.
Big football recruiting next weekend in Columbus as well, for this nationally televised game.
I like OSU's chances at home with IU, they make a lot of turnovers, take a lot of questionable shots and for long periods of game never even look to Zeller while launching 3's.
Home court crowd and that noise, plus OSU perimeter defense could be big. We get games like Craft, Williams and Smith had today, and the usual Thomas, I like our chances at home with a wild crowd.
If you could only have one, do you take a win @ #3 Meeechigan or a win at home vs IU? Florida is gonna be #2
think about it...
I think our odds of winning the BIG 10 are slim..losing to UM and beating IU we aren't tied for First anyway...? Losing at home would suck in front of all those recruits and fans, beating Meeechigan on the road would be priceless..
Side note...who is checking Zeller?
In this case, I'd rather punch Meeechigan in the mouth again...

IU at home on the big national Sunday game with a bunch of 2014 football recruits in the house. Easy choice.
IU at ILL Thurs, at the Bucks on Sunday.
Indiana at home on Sunday prime time.
Tuesday night will be interesting, UofM does not have a deep bench, and they looked to have some tired legs as IU rotated guys and kept up pressure. They had the look of a team without a deep bench and some tired kids.
Will be a tough away game, but if Ravenel, Ross and Scott could give us close to 12 to 15 points, 10 rebounds and a few assists off the bench, while minimizing turnovers and keep the pressure up off the bench, I like our chances.
Craft and Smith's offensive games are coming around, and lets hope Williams builds on today's game.
No Jordan Morgan again for UofM Tuesday night would help.

As a fan, do you really think a basketball game plays that big of a role in a football recruits experience?
I think one of the keys will be to see how the refs let Craft play Burke defensively.. f Craft gets whistled to the bench early we are in trouble. also, all the Q lovers, this is a huge opportunity for him to hit some Jumpers in the first half and build that confidence to the second half where he can help bring it home.

I think a big win at the Schott shows the kind of excitement that players haven't seen at the high school level and gives them a look at what campus life can be at a school like OSU. Not a deal sealer certainly but can help create a great impression. Most of the recruits have probably played hs hoops too.

fair enough...I'd rather punch Meechigan in the mouth, while Thad moves to 18-3 all time Vs them and overall 93-71, You know how those bastards love to play the all time record..
disclaimer... only because I don't believe we will win the BIG 10 this year so we mine as well ruin it for our rival..
Im with you...always want to beat Scum
I predict we beat scUM on the road, add Dontrel Wilson(despite a rumour I heard) and finish off the week with a big win over IU.
We will also get a big 2014 verbal this weekend as well :)
I'll have whatever you're drinkin'... Sounds terrific.
That game as well as the UM, M State , Minny games will all come down to which Craft decides to show up.
If the Duke , Kansas , M State , Illi version of Craft shows up against @ Indiana - they lose. If the 1st half of the Michigan game Craft shows - they win. Plain & simple.
Our point guards passing the ball around the perimeter all got damn game is not go get the job done.

Im pumped for this game as long as IU doesnt stub their toe against Illinois
mkillian247 on twitter..... I say a lot of stuff you wont care about.
Beating Michigan is always preferred in my book. It either makes them accuse us of cheating (because the only way they ever lose is if the other team is cheating), or taunting us with how much better they were 100 years ago. Performance on the field or in the gym doesn't really matter to them. Good times, good times.
I am tired of the negativity on the board so I figured I'll do my best Norman Vincent Peale and will us to a big week in The B1G .
Here is what I'm drinking. It'll put hair on your chest!
Buckeyes NEED to win this game.
"Whatever doesn't kill you...is gonna leave a scar." - MM
That is well played man!
Love the attitude. If it'll bring us wins over scUM and IU and bring Dontre into the fold, pour me a TALL glass! Panther Piss all around!
