Ohio State's next 2 games are at NW and then at MSG to play the Goofers. After that, it's 4 straight home games against UNL, PSU, Indiana and Illinois.

So far OSU has more or less blown the doors off of every B10 team they've played with the exception of Iowa (in control the whole way) and M (ugly 18 minutes before commencing blowing doors off).

And, yet, when they've played decent OoC teams, they've been whipped -- Gonzaga just methodically beat them; UNC put in a nice run at the end of the half and controlled the game thereon and Clemson got them good in the final 15.

Fascinating season. It's fantastic that it's at least interesting.

OSU controls the game early and almost loses it late against NW. I guess the upside is that this was a carbon copy of the Butler game -- and they blew that one, so progress!

More pointedly, I'm not about to complain about a road win for this team. The improbable starts continues -- 7-0 in conference. Goofers at MSG then a slew of home games. I might actually get to watch OSU play in the NCAA tournament this season! And get dumped out by an 11 or 10 seed.

Recruiting wise, Ohio State probably still has 4-5 more spots if they get the right players. They are primarily chasing:

Tyler Friday (you know about him)
Javontae Jean-Baptiste (low 4* DE)
Rasheed Walker (OT, top 100)
Nicholas Petit-Frere
Christopher Oats (low 4* OLB)
Maurice Washington (high 3* RB)

There are couple others, too, but that's the "non-reach" board (IMO). We'll find out about Friday on, well, Friday. Folks seem to think that JJB will got to OSU -- he had a relationship with Frosty, but I'm not sure it's enough to beat Schiano/LJSr. Oats, apparently, finally got the go-head to visit. He's an in-state kid that OSU has put on the backburner all year. They question was always whether they'd actually take him. Bringing him for an OV on the last weekend suggests they will.

With Washington, I'm not sure where he fits, but they really like him and have kept recruiting him despite having two RBs in the class.

NPF, according to Bill Greene, was going to ND until Heilstand left. Things are a little more open. He's scheduled an OV. If he gets off the plane then OSU probably has a credible chance. Until then, though, there's zero hope. That said, if OSU pulled NPF then I'd get to spend all day reading Mgo and watching the total meltdown. That'd be fun.

Ohio State has gone from not in Lunardi's bracket to a 3 seed in the space of 4 weeks. God bless.

Bama made Lunardi's bracket, too. Way lower, though. I think we're still NIT bound, though.

No way. Kirby Holcutt won't let it happen!!!!! WoOOooT!

Kenpom projects 18-13, 10-8 for Alabama. That is NIT-bound.

Seems to me like you have to beat Tennessee at home, get at least one on the road against Auburn, Florida and UK, and win the rest of your league home games plus 1 in Mississippi.

Beating Oklahoma would also help.

Yeah, KenPom tears us up. 53rd, last time I looked. But 18-13/19-12 and the NIT is likely.

RPI has us at 26th with the 5th best SoS in the nation. Along with the conference games, we play Oklahoma Saturday. Not good.

All of Bama's remaining 12 opponents are top 100 RPI.

6 top 25
3 #26-50
3 #50-100

So, NIT again unless they reward Avery for a tough sched.

Sorry, I must've missed it. No offense intended.

I always presume offensive intent and, in your case, have yet to be wrong. I’ll see you in hell, Morphy.

I am misunderstood.

More fouls being called on UNL in C-Bus than tattoos given to Buckeye football players...

First time OSU doesn’t cover a conference game.

So, for those unaware, Delaney’s neverending quest for East Coast coverage, which brings us the Delaney Bowl and brought us a conference tournament in DC, will bring us a conference tournament at MSG this year. Of course, the Big East has it for tournament week, so the B10 is playing a weekend early. That means that every team has this brutal stretch where they play on short rest. OSU played on Saturday. UNL spends the night in Cbus and is off to NJ for a Wednesday game. Stupid. Then, of course, they’ll get at least 10 days off before the NCAA. Even more stupid. Because playing in Indy or Chicago is so awful.

Can’t wait for football CG to get played at Fed Ex Field or some such bullshit.

Yeah, Indy, Chicago, Philly, Cleveland, Minneapolis, even Milwaukee or Detroit would work.

OSU is looking like a non-must must-win in Crisler. Would be a high-quality win.
