09:26 AM ET 12.10 | Despite what looks like a convincing win over Indiana-Purdue-Indianapolis, Ohio State took a while to get going. For the first 28 minutes or so, there was nothing about [Thursday] evening that even hinted at No. 2. Not the crowd, which was nonconference-cupcake small and quiet, and certainly not the team that is ranked there. Number two Ohio State, really? This is one of those early-season things that just seems to happen, where a faceless mass of sports writers and coaches take a look at last year, add, subtract, do some figuring and a little head-scratching and abracadabra -- we have some official rankings.

Doesn't matter how you are playing in December. Nine days off, final exams, a ho-hum opponent. So what, all that matters is how are (and are you) you playing in March

The Bucks started slow yesterday but thats what happens sometimes when you play a team that has nothing to lose and everything to gain from a win.

Thad has his team playing well already and its only early December, lets see how good they are in March!
