Rutgers has not had a lot of basketball success in the Big Ten since they joined the conference in 2014. Only five total wins, but they have two this year including a road win in Happy Valley last Saturday. Fortunately they could not make it two in a row as OSU holds on for a 70-64 home win, be sure to check out Jason's game summary.
Ohio State proves once again that any team can beat any other team in this mediocre conference. The same team that lost an 11-point lead to the Cornhuskers in the last game managed to hold on to their lead this time. Be sure to check out Jason's game summary.

Yes, you read that correctly, a group of former Buckeyes have just advance to the Final Four of the TBT. For most of you, I bet you are asking yourself, Basketball in the summer? and how have I missed this story? Would I interest you a little more if I told you the winning team gets $2 million to split between the players and fans of that team.
It was just a few years ago when the Big Ten told ESPN to take this contract and shove it. Today Commissioner Delany announced that one of the best media contracts in the business is getting better. Expect the other conferences to try to catch up but for now, the B1G is in the lead.

California wide receiver Chris Olave has committed to Ohio State over scholarship offers from UCLA, USC, Oregon and Florida to name a few. He will join a talented group of wide outs, now we just need to find out who will be throwing the ball around the field after the departure of JT Barrett.

Sometimes it is written that there are no bad loses. I think tonight, the Buckeyes may have challenge that cliche'.

This should make sure they our among the tops in the conference and country.
