Buckeyes Revenge


Well it might not have been the same players that made up the Florida and Ohio State basketball teams that played in last season’s national championship game, but the Ohio State Buckeyes got revenge against the Florida Gators defeating the Gators 62-49.

The revenge would have been sweet had Ohio State beat Florida in the title game last season in basketball after getting blown out earlier in the season in Gainesville 86-60. Ohio State failed to get revenge at the right time when given a second chance and lost last year in the title game 84-75. The game doesn’t mean much, and the revenge isn’t as great of a feeling other than Florida fans not being able to say we own Ohio State and OSU can never beat Florida.   OSU fans can at least say we beat Florida this year and can hope OSU does better than Florida in basketball this year come March.

Both teams aren’t having their premier years like last year. Neither team came into the game ranked and didn’t have nearly any of the type of hype of last year’s game when they played each other twice last season.

My prediction for this year is that both Ohio State and Florida will at least make the postseason, whether it is the NIT or NCAA tournament.
