Big 10 Hoops Media Day: Notable Quotables
Thursday was Big Ten basketball media day, and with it came a set of special quotes and soundbites. Sure, this day is all about college basketball message control.

Big Ten Basketball to Have a Down Year in 2011-12?

Big Ten Basketball to Have a Down Year in 2011-12?
Since 2009, we all saw this coming. Back then Big Ten basketball was dominated by a large group of sophomores that would only raise the conference profile higher to it’s peak in 2011. And we knew that once that group was gone (Kalin Lucas, Talor Battle, JaJuan Johnson, E’Twaun Moore, Durrell Summers, Demetri McCamey etc.)... Read more »

Big Ten Basketball Power Rankings 2-1-11

Lots of shakeup this week in my Big Ten Power Rankings. Let’s see where everyone shakes up. “CAN’T WAIT” as the New York Jets Bart Scott would say: 1. Ohio State Buckeyes (22-0, 9-0) Following their narrowest of escapes against a much less talented Northwestern team on Saturday night; it’s pretty obvious they’re not going... Read more »

OSU's Jared Sullinger: Big Ten's Best Player- Hands Down!

If you believe in the Ewing Theory, how a team can somehow get better and much more successful once their best player vacates, look no further that last year’s Big Ten champion, and Big Ten Tournament Champion Ohio State Buckeyes. Somehow the additions have outweighed the subtractions. They lost (with apologies to LL Cool J,... Read more »

#1 Ohio State Stays Unbeaten; Survives Illini in Champaign

To paraphrase Dean Martin’s timeless lyrics and apply them to college basketball: “Everybody loses a ballgame sometime, everybody gets defeated somehow.” And on paper, it appeared Ohio State‘s trip to Assembly Hall meant “that sometime was now.” We know that OSU is the #1 team in the Big Ten (after all, they’re #1 in nation),...

Big 10 Hoops Power Rankings 1-17

Ohio State takes over the #1 position in both national college basketball polls. Just like they did in college football a couple months ago…then they lost their very next game at Wisconsin. In hoops, they don’t visit Madison until February 12th, so maybe they’ll be alright for awhile this time. After the Buckeyes, the talent... Read more »
