Just another indicator how down college bball is this year...
I think it’s a great year. So much parity without a dominating team. Helps with Kentucky having a down year so far. Big 10 keeps feeding each other loses. I can’t wait for much and the tourney will be nuts. Louisville was #1 and then lost what 3 straight? Duke isn’t the same without Kelly.
I agree, I think it's going to be a very good year.........besides being voted #1 this year reminds me of the old SI jinx......
There are a lot of good teams, and no great teams, mainly because you can't point to a single great player.
Basically, any of the top 15 or so could win it, if they get on a run.
i think this year is maybe better than ever. i like whe it's wide open instead of knowing halfway through january that kentucky is going to walk to the title
Agree G2B, this year may be the most exciting march madness in a while.
College basketball will continue to go downhill as long as players keep going to the pros as fast as they can. Where's the patience to work on your game more in college and then go pro?
MEMO TO FICKELL: DEFENSE WINS CHAMPIONSHIPS!
i agree and disagree. the game is better than ever in terms of talent but sucks because teams have no identity not named vcu, butler, michigan state etc.
Loss in the 2nd round of the tourney.
+1. Most BB games I have watched in forever so far. Can't wait till March Madness.
I haven't watched more than a total of 6 minutes of basketball this season.......
This sport still sucks!! Sorry...I forgot.....basketball along with football and the others are just games.....
It's like watching womens gymnastics or figure skating only the judges are wearing striped uniforms and running around with the contestants! One shooter gets hacked and no one calls a foul and then on the opposite side of the court the exact same thing happens and then a foul is called!!
F'in stupid and the NFL is not far behind it sadly......
same here. every saturday there's been 3-4 games that come down to the final minute with high drama. i love basketball though due to my love of sports in general (what else is there to do in the winter?). i honestly think any team in the top 20 this year could legit win. think about the buckeyes. our offense to put it nicely sucks, but our defense is pretty amazing. so what if someone not named deshaun thomas learns how to make a few shots in march and gets hot? is duke, kansas, michigan, indiana that much more talented than the buckeyes? no. this being said, i could also see the buckeyes being knocked out in first or second round depending on the draw they pull
It all depends on who is drawn for each bracket and match up. Louisville will be a tough out, Duke is Duke and you never know what team you are going to get with how many 3’s they take. Miami is a surprise team with lots of upper classmen leadership. Never count out Kentucky and their skilled players if they ever find some chemistry watch out. Kansas is still playing very well. As for OSU if Craft can play a bit more consistent offensively this team is dangerous.
oh i agree with you 100%. it's scary when i can see this osu team lose in the first round or possibly win the entire thing (i dont actually think they will, just making the point). this could be the year a butler or vcu finally wins the entire thing. i legit am look at the top 25 and i can make an argument that 18 teams could legit win it.
Commenting on my own post....LOL!!
How pathetic is that?!! Geesh....
Sorry about this immature and stupid post guys....woke up a bit grumpy this morning.
Coffee is a great thing!
Basketball has just always frustrated me......maybe if I understood the game a bit better I might appreciate other aspects of it.
Have a great day fellow Buckeys!!
watching OSU lose at the buzzer against MSU, OSU beating Michigan as Trey missed a tying shot, watching Indiana pull a win out in the final seconds against MSU, watching Louisville beat Syracuse in the final seconds and the games of last second wins go on and on this year, can't believe anyone thinks this is an off year in college basketball. Best year I can ever remember.
butler miracle against indiana and gonzaga have also been awesome. add in the normal big east and big ten just pummeling each other i agree, dont know how you cant love this
I dont want to see that crappy title on our board. I think it needs changed to scums ranking..or something of that nature
Scam will not win title i promise
matchups will mean even more this year than they have in the past with how wide open it is. michigan sadly is very good. but they're also really young and get raddled it seems fairly easy (see osu game). if that happens in the tourney they'll be out in the sweet 16
raddled WTF is raddled
It means they have themselves on a pedal stool lol
was surprised to look at their schedule and see so far they've only played 3 ranked teams. #19 NC state who just lost to Virginia and probably fall out of the rankings, #23 MInnesota who they just beat and will most likely fall out of the top 25 and #11 OSU which they lost too. They will play OSU again and Indiana and MSU twice, the next month will show a lot to if they're a top 5 team or not.
they also beat pitt and kansas state. those are all solid wins, not great but solid. i overall agree with you that the next month will show a lot but i can say that about every team in the top 25. heart of conference play always shows the contenders to the pretenders. up until conference play the buckeyes hadnt beaten anyone and still dont have a quality road win. hopefully we see a chage with that next tuesday at michigan
Sorry to say but scum is a legit team. Anyone who says otherwise doesn't know hoops
