This Season

15-2 (2-2). The Gophers are tied with the Buckeyes for 5th in the B1G right now. Which just feels odd to type.

The Buckeyes have had a good first half of the season overall. They are currently ranked 9th in the Coaches and 11th in the AP. Their two losses are not anything to be ashamed of, falling to Michigan State in overtime in East Lansing and to Iowa at home. The home loss to Iowa has to sting a little, but someone at the top of the table was going to lose to Iowa at home (they're good, which is still weird) and Ohio State was the lucky team.

THE #TAKES

1) So, about that defense. Ohio State is a lock down defensive team. KenPom has them ranked #1 in the country in defensive efficiency. Teams aren't shooting well against them and they force turnovers. Totally a team I like the Gophers to upset...

2) I really want to see how an Aaron Craft game gets called. I haven't paid a lot of attention to Ohio State yet this year, so I don't have a good idea about how His Royal Handcheckness is faring under the new points of emphasis from the officials. With luck, this will be a game where he takes himself out early with ticky tack nonsense.

3) No one expects the Gophers to win this game. That's right folks, we're still in that stretch of "no one gives Minnesota a chance" games. So sit back, relax, grab a bourbon, and enjoy a Gopher game on The Deuce.
