Georgia Tech looms large on the inside | BuckeyeXtra

Full story: Columbus Dispatch

Thad Matta did not consider it a good omen. On Thursday night, Ohio State center Dallas Lauderdale left his scouting report for the NCAA Tournament opener against UC Santa Barbara in the meeting room.

I think Georgia Tech is alittle too Confident. I hope Evan Turner plays better today. It might be me, but lately he's been complaining alot. I know he was fouled alot in the last game, but play your game. It just looks like he's searching for a foul every time he touches the ball. Evan, you know I Luv Ya, but you gotta man up !! If Diebler & Lauderdale play today like they did Friday, Ohio State will be moving on..!!

GO BUCKEYES !!!

If OSU gets past this game, and that is a big if, another matchup nightmare awaits in Tennessee who surely would be looking for some payback from 2007 from a program perspective. Who would have thought that the Buckeyes would have to be worried about Tech and Tennessee at this point instead of Kansas and G'town?

Steve - you are spot on. I worried about facing Georgetown for the same reason that Ga. Tech worries me -- big bodies inside. We can't afford to get in to foul trouble and we don't have too much experience with this kind of game since there aren't teams in the Big Ten that look like either Ga Tech or Georgetown inside. Certainly, there is no one in the Big Ten with two NBA first-rounders up front! On the plus side, Friday's night's win is a preview of how good the Bucks can be next year, even if Turner's leaves. Diebler, Lighty, and Buford will only get better and add Sullinger and Thomas - potentially WOW!

GT will be a tuff game today but playing the likes of MSU and Wisconsin will have OSU ready to play this team. Turner can not shot the ball the way he did vs us santa barbara or OSU has no shot. GT's gaurd play is not strong so OSU will have a great change to force turnovers. If OSU gets by GT i do not think they would have to worry about UT. Yes UT would like payback but the two teams are completly different than when they played back then. I was shocked when KU lost yesterday. This really gives OSU a great shot of making to the final four if they can get by GT today.

I agree with Steve in Findlay. I've been worried about the Tennessee match-up for a while because that is a grudge match. The Oden-Conley team beat Tennessee twice their season, but just barely and with some help from the refs in both games.

If Bruce Pearl has forgotten they still have Wayne Chism on the team to remind them. Let's hope Matta and Lighty can equally energize the Buckeyes. They will need every ounce of energy to win, I think.
