As a Buckeye fan I really wanted to be in Duke bracket. The last thing was to be in Kansas bracket.

OSU has the Hoyas on the way as well. I have to agree with you the Jayhawks are the best team in the country and its a load of BS Duke got the easiest bracket.

Cuse's bracket isn't too bad. I'd say Kstate is the biggest threat for them. Oh well we see what goes on it'll be fun this year I'd say its pretty wide open.

Yeah I am not happy with Georgetown either. I thought they should of been a #2 seed.

Tough run for the Buckeyes.

Cuse bracket isn't too bad like you said. Probably the second easiest out of the #1. I would say Kansas, Kentucky, Cuse, Duke in that order of toughest where it should probably be the other way around.

Ohio State got screwed over,especially if you look at the easy road the other #2 seeds have to go down. Its awful considering OSU was close to being a #1 seed. Georgia Tech and Georgetown will be tough for them (pending they all win). OSU seems to lack a post presence to match up with a Favors or Monroe. But I think Turner can carry them to the final four and I hope so.

I'm picking Syracuse over Kentucky to win it all. I will also be cheering for Syracuse because of the Canadian players on their team. Same for Gonzaga who happen to have four Canadians. They will most likely meet in the second round which is a bummer. And man is great seeing UNC out of the tourny, hopefully Duke chokes like usual so both of those gay teams can suffer unsuccesful seasons together.

Ohio State did play big teams well in conference, Michigan State and Minnesota
you also have to remember their guards are bigger than the other teams
Favors doesn't have a great offensive arsenal, Aldrich of Kansas is a bigger problem
Georgetown is a problem if they start hitting 3's
Guard play rules in the tourney

Duke might have to play Louisville in the 2nd round, not an easy victory
and you know how Duke under preforms in the tourney

Ohio State in Kansas' bracket means they were #8 overall
they've played better than K State and Nova, possibly even W Virginia this whole season, especially when they had Turner

Strength of schedule though. Nova and Kstate clearly had harder schedules. Heck you could make a case for Pitt as they beat 3 top 5 colleges this year.

Kstate a very scary team but also the brackets are never fair always a problem. Its 65 scores with a ton of different schools.

Oh and how about former #1 Texas with that "great defense". They really got screwed didn't they

Texas has "great" interior D
Texas is like Toronto, they have 11 players, no solid rotation, sub par guard play

I still can't believe Duke's biggest test is going to be Baylor or Nova
Kansas should have lost the champ game so they wouldn't have to face 3 possible champ contending teams before the final 4

Agree. If Louisville beats California they have the talent and team to beat Duke in round 2.

Like it! #5 baby! This team is going to be good. Buford looked good at PG at last night practice. Last year I called him mini-ET. He did some stuff like Turner did but not at the same rate. This year I think he has a huge year and is a mid round first round draft pick. Can't wait to see Jared Sullinger play.

Ohio State starting 5: Buford-Dibler-Lighty-Sullinger-Lauderdale.

That is a pretty good starting 5. The question is what freshman can step up and come off the bench for us. DeShaun Thomas will back up the 4. Aaron Craft will back up PG for Buford. Diebler and Lighty will probably play 40min a game so don't need no 2 or 3 right now.

Talented team. Should get better as the year goes on. Should challenge Michigan State for B10 title. They only play once and its at Ohio State!

Purdue at #9 is too high sadly. Losing Hummel I have them as a 21-25 rank team.

Luderdale is still playing? I thought the dude was 30
Texas should be ranked higher if they play to their potential

haha. yeah he looks real old with his big bald spot and facial hair. lol

He is a Senior this year. 3 Seniors in the starting lineup, 1 Junior, and 1 Big time Freshman recruit. Got to like that. Experience and talent. Should be a fun year.

Kansas State bring all their players back? If so that is a pretty talented team and fun to watch. Saw they were #3 so I was guessing they did.
