2nd Thoughts: Akron

Yeah, Thad knew they could do it… Ohio State (21-13) overcame a listless first half to surge by University of Akron (26-9) 72-63 to move on to the 2nd round of the NIT. By listless, if you can’t sleep at night, watch the 1st half; you’ll be unconscious in no time. Both teams combined to […]


OSUMBB: Ohio State Edges Akron 72-63 in Overtime

Thad wondering where he’ll get enough healthy players. Ohio State (20-13) teed it up in the 1st round of the National Invitational Tournament by hosting in-state opponent University of Akron (26-8). The Zips lost a tough game, 64-61 in the Mid-American Conference tournament final against University of Buffalo (I had to get that in). Ohio […]


2nd Thoughts: OSU vs MSU III

Frankly, I think that Thad deserves a hand this season. It seems like I’ve been doing a lot of ‘2nd Thoughts’ articles with a “MSU beats OSU” theme lately. Thankfully, this is the last one for this season. Friday night’s Michigan State win, 81-54 again highlighted the capabilities difference between these two teams this season. […]

Ohio State (19-12, 11-7) teed it up in the 1st/2nd round of the Big Ten Tourney against Penn State (16-15, 7-11). The winner plays Michigan State on Friday evening. It’s not much of an incentive, but a win does get Ohio State to the “20 Win Land”. And that they did! The Buckeyes rode clutch […]


2nd Thoughts: MBB OSU vs MSU, Finale

He did provide a lot of encouragement. The Buckeyes (19-12, 11-7) had their season end abruptly with a 91-76 loss to #2 Michigan State on Saturday. The regular season was obviously going to end after this game, so by “abruptly”, I mean ‘over at halftime’. Midway through the 1st half, the teams were tied. Ten […]


OSUMBB: OSU Bombed By MSU, 91-76

Thad is trying to remember who was supposed to defend Denzel… Ohio State (19-11, 11-6) entered the rematch against Michigan State (25-5, 12-5) a bit shorthanded but with a good bit  more confidence. They entered as 14-pt underdogs, for those people who track that sort of thing. Finally, they entered with  need to cool off […]

2nd Thoughts: Ohio State > Iowa

(Image courtesy He did a lot of this on Sunday. The Buckeyes (19-11, 11-6) had one of their more inspired efforts Sunday afternoon. It was Ohio State’s last regular season game of the year and they went out in style with an exciting 68-64 win over (for now) #8 Iowa. Certainly not to take […]

Can Ohio State’s Men’s Basketball team make the NCAA tournament?

Hello everyone and welcome as I give you my honest opinion as if the Ohio State men’s basketball team has any chance at making the NCAA Tournament this year. Well, their chances took a huge hit this past week and we learned Sophomore Jae’Sean Tate, who has been Ohio State’s most consistent player this season, […]


2nd Thoughts: Buckeyes – Spartans

(Image courtesy Yes, Denzel is pretty good, isn’t he? The Buckeyes (18-11, 10-6) had a valiant first half, but eventually were bombed into submission by an unworldly 3-pt efficiency by the Spartans (23-5, 10-5). Michigan State held a narrow halftime lead, 36-31, but overpowered Ohio State with 45 second-half points. Spartan guard Bryn Forbes […]


MBB: Ohio State Outlasts Huskers in OT, 65-62

They left the game, finally, on the short end as Ohio State prevailed 65-62 in overtime. The Buckeyes overcame a sluggish 1st half and trailed 22-21 at the half. A the midpoint of […]

WBB: Ohio State Routs Nebraska, 96-70

Coach McGuff would like to point out how good his team is. The #5 Ohio State Buckeyes entered the game (21-4, 13-1) on a 9 game winning streak and anticipated extending it against the Nebraska Cornhuskers (17-8, 8-6). That they did, as the Buckeyes took control early in the game and won very easily 96-70. Ohio […]


2nd Thoughts: Michigan

(Thad’ guys had ’em all the way Or at least when it counted.) The Buckeyes (17-10, 9-5) took a significant step toward The Twenty Win Season with a very satisfying 76-66 win over Michigan on Tuesday. The win was especially satisfying to me since I golf with UM’s coach John Beilein’s brother-in-law. I won’t have to listen […]


MBB: Ohio State Beats Michigan 76-66

Thad appreciates good effort at both ends of the floor. For Tuesday’s game, Michigan (19-7, 9-4) entered the game as a 1-point favorite against Ohio State (16-10, 8-5). The left the game haunted by The Villain’s ghost as Ohio State put together a nice game to win 76-66. For the “Honor Evan Turner at Halftime” […]
