I don’t see much discussion about them here and why I started the thread. I’m not a fan of the buckeyes and love when we beat them. They have however surprised me this year with there performance. What are your thoughts?

They're looking pretty solid. KenPom actually has them ranked 18 overall. (Btw, he has PSU at #45.)

At 14-4 and 5-0 in the B1G, they're playing well. Overall, they've scored 80 ppg while allowing 68.4. They outright crushed MD 91-69, after beating MSU 80-64. They very much belong in the top 4 of the B1G. Not a Buckeye fan, but they're looking a lot better than most expected.They did lose early games to Butler and Clemson, and got wrecked by Gonzaga, and those recent two big wins were at home, so will be interesting to see how they fare against the better teams now on the road.Their schedule is stacked with home games for quite some time, for some reason.

Not a fan of Ohio St at all but kind of glad they are doing well. Reason why is that since Minnesota and Northwestern (who were predicted 3 and 4) in most preseason Big 10 polls are not doing well....we need chances at more quality wins (besides Sparty and Purdue). Wish we had Michigan and Nebraska at home. All the more reason Sunday is almost a must win for us.

yeah I hear you. NW will be a tough game, but I like our direction, here's to hoping the "good" Hoosiers show up.

OSU.   Remind me. Who is their coach ?

Naw... he's been doing a good job so far in his first year.  I believe in giving credit, when credit is due.  And so far OSU is preforming.  Coming off of some really great games for them.

haven't seen them play, but if we're going to have threads on other teams, i'd rather Ohio State be on top than a 17 page Purdue thread.

What really opened my eyes, was when they went up to Wisky and absolutely murdered them in their own building!  Something I hope we can do again someday.  They are playing really good ball right now.
