Gonna be another tough one this Saturday.
Tough yes. We cannot overlook them. As good as Arizona? No. If we play our game this will be easier than our last 2 games
We are coming for you Bama!
It will be another tough one. Thad is already prepping. Their rebounding acumen worries me the most.
I think Craft can neutralize their PG. We need Amir to show up and play tough along with Thomas & Ravanel.
Cleveland Orchestra Baby!! World's greatest!! The Brown's wet dream is to be them. The Ohio State University-Where the Illibuck Lives!
I agree they do. I'm nervous but here are Wichita State's losses this year:
Southern Illinois (14-17)
Tough game but we are tested. We lost some early but seem to get the eb and flow of the games now.
Sarah sorry about the Herpes.
A loss here would be DISASTROUS. Thad doesn't have many of those on his resume nor does he lose to unranked teams over the last three years. What, like once @Illiniois on a flukey game last year? I'm going to say it because I can as a fan and not a player-we are on the precipitous of a second straight Final 4. Just wow....
I like our chances, but we have to play our game. The key, as always, will be craft playing lock down D.
Hard to say any win in the E8 should be easy, but if there is one it should be this game. I will be disappointed if the Bucks don't control the game and win by double digits.
We could be in trouble. Chuck says we are "turrible" and not very "uthletic." Not sure we can handle the Shockers.
Here's the deal. We can lose to this team. Don't fool yourself and be over confident. We can definately lose to this team. However, that could be said for us and 50 other teams on any given night. If this game was played 100 times we win 75. That's pretty darn good, but it's not like WSU has no chance at all.
This team has already passed my expectations. At the beginning of the season i thought we were a sweet 16 team. I thought we would likely be out there, but we have gone further. One more game and we are in another final 4. That is tremendous for our program. OSU basketball hasn't been this good in 50 years and has never been this consistently good in the history of the program. We are in a golden era!

Bucks win by 10+...
If people get past the school name (Wichita State) and just look at how they play, then you would know this game is going to be real tough. They are a good basketball team.
Agree with above.
The MVC is very underrated and plays tough basketball.
Lots of upperclassmen on their team.
I read somwhere that they really dont play anyone over 6'8" which is right up our alley. I think as far as matchups go, this is a good one. WSU had some real bad losses during the year and definately have not played the type of competition that tOSU has played. As long as they dont get caught looking past this game, they should control the game.
A team that lost TWICE to Evansville (in addition to N. Iowa and Indiana State) has zero business beating this Buckeye team. None. Don't kid yourself, it would be a monumental upset and blown opportunity. We need to get this done. Expectations change through the course of a season, you can't look at them in a vacuum. Falling short of the Final 4 at this point in time would be a big disappointment, no other way sugar coat it.
Ohio st will win unless we beat ourselves!
If we avoid Lousville and Kansas we win the NC, however I think those teams will be in the NC
They have had up to 6 people injured, amid these losses occurred with key people on their team out. Now they are healthy, so we have to play well.
But, if we play hard and smart, I say we win.
