It seems ludicrous that a Geek would pose such a question concerning the No. 11-ranked team according to Ken Pomeroy, but it’s fair. While the Buckeyes still look good in the computer’s eyes, but the computer’s eyes aren’t going to determine things like whether Ohio State will be invited to the Dance and how it will be seeded. So far on the season, OSU has faced three quality opponents (Duke, Kansas, and Illinois), and they’ve lost them all.
The Big Ten men’s basketball coaches held a Big Ten teleconference Monday with reporters from around the league, and we’ve posted the audio from each phone interview in the post below. BTN.com will post these media sessions throughout the season right up to the Big Ten Men’s Basketball Tournament, and all of our audio can be found in our BTN.com audio archive.
Before Sunday’s game vs. Wisconsin, Nebraska coach Tim Miles presented recently retired athletic director Tom Osborne with a framed Nebraska jersey. It wasn’t any Nebraska jersey, either. It was the special alternate adidas jersey the Huskers wore Sunday, and it included Osborne’s name above the number, No. 1. Watch the presentation in this video now.
