Thanks Steve. Sure wish I felt more confident, but I'm not sure it's a matchup issue as much as a confidence and in-control factor. I hope I'm wrong, but I think MSU "bucks" your trend this time. Yet, there's still a helluva lot of games to be played.
The teams are almost mirror images of each other if osu controls the msu break and makes it a halfcourt game then thomas would be best player on the floor just a thought
Why is Thad always coughing at every media meet greet ? Does he have some type of condition ?

Can't believe oddsmakers have this game a pick 'em...I sure hope they are right...GO BUCKS !
We have beaten the Spartans two times in a row at the Breslin Center. I also believe we have won the last 4 of 6 games we have played wiht them. They are not the Harlem Globtrotters, or like the past MSU teams we have faced. They are very beatable, if we take care of business. Somehow Payne has always played well agansit us. We need to shut him down..maybe with foul trouble early. Thomas and Craft need to atttack the basket, and the Buckeyes need to block out and rebound. We will be ok if we do that, and hit some shots.
Smith, Ross or Thompson need to put on their big boy pants and start supporting Thomas as a scorer.Williams and Ravenal need to put on their game faces and be tought in the paint.
This playing on the road at other B10 schools and forgetting where the basket is, letting a crowd get to us, and disbanding our skill sets cannot be a part of the road to a B10 Crown.
We need to go in,...kick butt, take , and return to Columbus in style...
