    Sounds about right. I just hope I get to see them play in one of the preseason tourneys before it gets canceled

    I just wish we beat the damn virus and have a season, period.

    That being said, I find it unusual that the ACC Challenge matchups have not been announced yet. Did ESPN furlough the event schedulers?

    I would like this tweet a lot better if it was in the Recruiting forum under Branham:biggrin:

    That Twitter account sure ain't getting a follow from me after this stunt. They made it seem like there was going to be breaking news, and it became a total disappointment. I thought there was going to be news about this season or recruiting. I don't really care who is on the B1G all-decade team.

    if osu plays its b1g-acc challenge opponent on the road, which is likely just based on home/away balance, then here are next season's home games:

    oakland
    niagara
    akron
    towson
    morehead state
    alabama a&m


    yeah, that's probably the worst non-conference slate of home games that osu has ever scheduled. only akron (82nd) finished better than 150th per kenpom. only two programs finished better than 230th.

    sure, osu's overall non-conference strength of schedule will probably prove to be quite strong since there will likely be 6 games versus decent opponents all away from home. last year, we played 4 non-conference teams that ended the season in the top 50. only 3 proved to be quad 1 games. this year, we should have either 5 or 6 quad 1 non-conference games. if the b1g's overall strength holds somewhat comparably to last season, then osu should finish the regular season with about 18 quad 1 games. very few national teams would have more.

    regarding the location of osu's b1g-acc challenge game, a home game would give us a +2 advantage versus away games. it's possible we go +2, but it is unlikely. and i think it's more unlikely that we'll be scheduled to play a 3rd home game out of the last 4 challenges. the thing is, our non-conference home schedule is so laughably bad that i can't help but assume that ho1tmann & co. are pushing hard for a home game versus an acc opponent. perhaps a home game happens because of that reason alone.

    then again, maybe osu is content not having a home game versus an acc opponent. maybe this is the one season where it's preferable to have the worst possible schedule of non-conference home games. our fanbase is already good at socially distancing themselves in the schott. against morehead state et al., we can be great at it.

    I really hope this tourney gets played. Been far too long since we've played in one of these
