As soon as Deshaun Thomas gets a bit more playing time, OSU will have the Fab 3 in the Big 10!

As soon as DT learns to play a more complete game, he'll get the minutes.

It's so nice to see such an unselfish group of guys playing for the Buckeyes again. Much like the group of the 60's. Keep up the good work--make us proud again. GO BUCKS!!!!

Thad Matta is a class act, a great X and Os guy and an fantastic recruiter and more importantly, runs a clean program. Hope all our players paid for their tatoos lol. The buckeyes have a heck of a team this year, a unique blend of seniors and freshmen (one junior I believe, Buford). Don't expect them to go undefeated, but would be great to win the conference, do well in the B10 tourney and go deep in the big dance. GO BUCKS!

Go Buckeyes and Coach Matta .... The Buckeyes are very deserving of the # 1 ranking and Let's hope we can stay on top for a couple of weeks with the tough part of the Big Ten Conference schedule coming up ...Go Bucks !

The #1 ranking is great, but there is a long road ahead. 8 of the next 13 remaining games are against ranked conference opponents. They need to come out and dominate Iowa since it's a home game. Then comes Illinois and Purdue. I say let's see them get through the next 13 games with 2 losses or less and then we can really start the "best team in the country" talk. They have the right players, the right attitude, now it's all about execution to be the best. GO BUCKS!

Congraulations to Coach Matta, the assistant coaches and the players for achieving the # 1 ranking.

I know as well that for Coach Matta he will downplay the rankings knowing that the only # 1 ranking that matters is at the end of the year.

This is a fun team to watch, with its mixture of upper classmen and youth, of good play in the post and good play on the perimeter. I hope this team continues to improve and continues to put forth its best effort.

This is no knock on the Bucks, but the Big Ten is so tough that the Bucks will lose some road games. Then they get bumped from No. 1. But staying in the top three or four teams, so that they get a No. 1 Seed in the NCAA is a good goal to have, along with winning the Big Ten. Certainly the Bucks are capable of doing all of that. But it is tough to stay focused and to win when you're the team that is circled on each opponent's calendar.

Great bunch of guys, great coach, great program, great university. This alum is very proud.

Go Bucks!
