    The Buckeyes travel to East Lansing to take on the 16-8 (7-4) Spartans.

    Big game for OSU obviously. The Buckeyes certainly could use a higher profile road win to put on their resume. MSU has been perhaps the most enigmatic team in the B1G this year (either them or Iowa). The Spartans got taken to the limit and into OT at home vs. Northwestern and blew out the Wildcats on the road. Lose to Illinois at home, dominate Iowa on the road. Get swept by Maryland, hammer IU by 20. Lose narrowly to Kansas and ND ... and Texas Southern and Nebraska.

    I don't think this is one of Tom Izzo's better MSU teams clearly. In fact the very long NCAA tourney appearance streak for MSU could come to an end if they don't pull out some big wins to end the season. Surely they will be eyeing this game with OSU as a potential resume builder that they desperately need. I do believe OSU has the better team though, and I hope and expect to see a Buckeye victory in this game.

    Like I said, Act 1 of the "We Don't Give a Damn for the WHOLE State of michigan" tour.

    They will absolutely throw their best punch of the year.

    Go Bucks!

    You are correct a win today and the Buckeyes would be around a 6 seed and a loss today and they would be around an 8 seed. The reason is the Buckeyes just don't have a big time quality road win this year the best being at Minnesota who is not quite in the field. Michigan State is likely in the field but around a 10/11 seed right now so this would be a huge quality road win.

    Also important for the Big 10 seeding a win here gives us 9-4 and tie breaker over MSU for a potential 2/3/4 seed for Big 10 tourney. A loss and they still could get to the 2/3/4 line but it will be a little tougher. Also you would prefer 2/3 over 4 to avoid Wisky.

    Frustrating could be up 7-10 right now only up 2

    From up 5 to down 3 didn't step on their throats when we had the chance. This is one of the least talented teams MSU has had in a while we SHOULD win this game.

    Costello rolled over on the ground to avoid a jump ball call after already establishing possession and they didn't call a travel....smh

    Izzo is so annoying when your team goes up against him. He has his teams play rugby down low and then whines and cries when his players get the same treatment.

    If Izzo coached his team up in MSU's other games like he does when MSU plays Ohio State, then MSU would win the national title every year. Sheesh--MSU looks like dog [censored] at home against dregs of the conference like Michigan and Illinois, but OSU rolls into town, and they turn into the '92 Chicago Bulls.

    Buckeyes aren't helping themselves either. Those last few minutes of the half were UGLY.
