    It's going to be interesting hearing Dakich talking up the Buckeyes this season though, right?

    I still don't know how a guy who played at Indiana can be such an Ohio State homer. I mean, I know that his kid plays at Ohio State now, but I think that is more a result of Dakich's love for the Buckeyes; not the other way around. Dude loves himself some Aaron Craft.

    That's true ... I almost forgot about that love affair.

    It would be a more realistic prediction if he said they would win four games.

    In all seriousness though...  How does everyone feel we are going to do this year? 

    On the one hand, there are serious depth issues especially at the one and five spots.  We are also going to have to rely heavily on some younger players.

    On the other hand, there is still quite a bit of talent on the roster.  Fully half of the scholarship players came in with as four star recruits.  Its easy to forget, Ohio State brought in the top recruiting class in the conference this year. Additionally, we still have our pastry shop of an out of conference schedule. 

    I am curious to see how the individual players develop with this new staff.

    I think we can maybe make the tournament if everything breaks just right. But more realistically I think we're looking at 17 or 18 wins and a little below .500 in the Big Ten.

    It will be a rough year, but there should be better than last year. I don't expect a final four appearance, but it would be nice to see them at least be on the bubble for the tournament.

    I truthfully have no idea what to expect from this new coaching staff and a thin looking roster. But I guess that will be part of the fun this season is finding out what they're all capable of doing.

    I see us as a NIT team.  But I also see us being better than last year. I will say that I am pretty excited for this season. I was a big Matta fan but I felt like it was time for a change and I cant wait to see how things play out.

    Not only does Ohio State have a basketball team but, after last Saturday, I think it's officially a basketball school.

    Nice. I'll be looking for your blurry face in the background of the game photos ...

    I'm curious about the fan reaction to this team as well in addition to just how the Buckeyes play. We all know the atmosphere hasn't been great for a while, and odds are this isn't going to be a wonderful basketball team this season.

    They will likely need to pull off an upset or two to get people to start coming to the games AND get involved.
