    "Now there ARE 6 left".

    I am not an English major but a chemistry major. Even I know a little grammar. Laughing

    I think they're ranked higher b/c they don't play UK like OSU and AU does. Winking

    When you have multiple natty's, you can post in whatever thread you want. It's a free pass.
    And I agree, you certainly are confused.

    Bzzzt wrong

    This isn’t for teams who lost to mid majors this season and are living off past glory because their team is a joke this season.

    This is for current undefeated teams in 2019.

    Guess which bucket Kentucky fits in?

    I have no problem with OSU fans narrowing down their entire history of success to 9 games. What else do they have?

    After roommating with some former OSU football players, while living in Columbus (Jim O;Brien years), I know first hand they're not used to having much success on the court and will jump on the bandwagon pretty quick. Almost as quick as they jump off.


    I'm also going to post in any thread here, and I love it bothers some. They should probably have a good cry (on here, so we all can read), so it makes it better.

    I hope that clears up any confusion. :D

    I mean you losers can post here all you want. Doesn’t bother me and rightfully we get to call you losers because your team has lost.

    It’s a win-win

    Fair enough. It is funny how you took Jimbo's avatar bet straight up but needed points to take mine earlier in the season. That's kind of what I meant by jumping on the wagon. Winking

    Seriously though, I liked Columbus. My three roommates were two of the Smith brothers, (Rod (OSU) and Andre (Bowling Green). They were older brothers to Troy. Plus another guy who actually won a D1/AAA state championship on the '94 Westerville North state championship team. My younger brother and sister are also graduates of OSU. I just like to give shit on here, b/c well.., it's a message board.

    Feels like 2011 again. Ohio St and KU 1 and 2. Painful memory for me and I KNOW it’s a painful memory for you. But don’t be blue. Stay true.

    2011? Yikes. I just don't know if I'm ready to stomach a sub top-25 UConn team winning another title. That team is freakishly efficient with their title runs.

    They do have 11 Final Four appearances, which is more than any other school not named UNC, UCLA, Kentucky, Duke, or Kansas.

    BTW, they have 10 and tied with Mich St. Their '99 was vacated, but your point remains the same.

    I was aware of that. I still give them credit for the FF, though.

    I'm not a fan of vacated games either. I was in Columbus in '99 and I watched it happen.

    Here's the kicker (from wiki)

    A two-year NCAA investigation found that player Boban Savovic might have received improper benefits while he played for Ohio State. On March 10, 2006, the NCAA gave Ohio State three years' probation and ordered it to pay back all tournament money earned from 1999–2002 when Boban Savovic was on the Buckeyes' roster. In addition, Ohio State was forced to remove all references to team accomplishments by the NCAA directorate from those years including a 1999 visit to the Final Four.[4]

    Of those the only respectable loss is Louisville. Texas Tech is a fine team.

    That's a shame. He wasn't even one of the key pieces for OSU in 99.

    Those 3 B1G schools are pretty solid, too. Purdue is a top 25 team, IMO. And Illinois and Penn State will both be in the tournament.

    I don’t know much about Illinois’s team, but Underwood is a fine coach. He’s also responsible for building another program on that list.

    Illinois has a lot of talent that if they reach or exceed potential can break a few hearts come tourney time

    How does one exceed potential?

    You mean like if they get bitten by radioactive spiders or struck by gamma rays?

    You guys cried like babies when I entered a "blue blood" thread last year.

    Yeah, I can enter this thread because I'm the creator of it and in charge of maintenance.

    I gave it a thought, and really tried to remember, can't recall crying or sniffling.

    Oh wait, now I remember, I sobbed uncontrollably about whatever. :oops:

    We are a gorgeously ugly team, and I like it.

    Still see us as a 3-6 seed when all is said and done, but our defense, length, and depth make us a team that can win on any night and can make a deep run in the tourney depending on the draw. Our shooting and free throws can go cold in a hurry though and make us susceptible to anyone.

    Like where we are though with a ton of room to improve, because I know my opinion is valued by all...............
