Wow, Zimmy...
I know about Kentucky's 2013 recruiting class,
But couldn't tell anyone anything about 2014 or 2015.

What does Ohio State have in terms of returning players for 2013?

PG - Aaron Craft / Shannon Scott (I actually think Scott is significantly better on offense & not that much of a drop off on defense)
SG - Lenzelle Smith Jr (Amedeo Della Valle & possibly Kameron Williams sub)
PF? - LeQuinton Ross (hopefully Marc Loving splits time not because Ross is bad but because I hope Loving is that good)
SF? - Sam Thompson
C - Amir Williams / Trey McDonald

+ 2 other people I don't remember ever seeing on the floor.

It would have been awesome if Deshaun Thomas had stayed but he turned down the Hawks and signed with the French League champs a few days ago.

I thought I saw something that had OSU ranked as the 6th best 2014 recruiting class with a chance to be #1 if we land one of the guys we're after (a Center).

The Marquette game was one of the ugliest games I've seen in a while.  Good win against the projected Big East champ in their own building, though.

I also read where Della Valle was trolling Michigan on twitter for losing to Iowa St.  I probably wouldn't do that - but it's not as if they need anything extra to get them up for a game against us.

I think Ohio State is in trouble this year in roundball.

Kraft can't hit jumpers, Ross looks like he doesn't really care, and the whole offense seems off most of the time.

OSU looked better against North Florida, but it was N Florida.  The only other ranked team they played was UF & they lost 77-69 vs our 99-64.
Somehow we got ranked #5 AP & #3 Coaches.

It looks like they really get up to play good teams but then they might go through the motions against lesser opponents.

At Michigan St tomorrow.  Sparty & the Badgers are nearly becoming as heated as TSUN games.

Bump!

Well, we have a new coach.  Another Butler product..I don't know much about him but am willing to give this time and see what develops.  I'm not happy to see Thad go, as he really did put the program in a good place, but I guess it is a results-driven industry and no tourney the past couple years.
Don't give up.  Don't ever give up.
