Big Ten Geeks: Is Ohio State good?

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.

There was no great mystery as to why OSU lost—they were terrible shooting the ball, both inside and
