GameThread: #15 Ohio State Buckeyes at Purdue Boilermakers

Purdue bounces back like roundball. - Gregory Shamus

Thad Matta's 15th ranked Buckeyes look to right the ship in West Lafayette after a rough go at it in Champaign over the weekend.

Ohio State comes off their worst basketball performance in four years to face a Purdue side that looked competent at times against Michigan State but fell apart down the stretch to trip their way into a blowout of their own. The interesting thing is that Purdue took down the very same Fighting Illini team that completely lambasted Ohio State this past weekend the game prior.

Which Ohio State and Purdue teams we get will be anyone's guess, but for all the Buckeyes' fundamental problems, it would still feel like a somewhat surprise were OSU not to handle their business against a young, perhaps even more inconsistent Boilermakers group.

Below is your Game Thread. As per usual, we have one rule and one rule only: pay it forward. Be cool to your fellow Buckeye, and serenade them with lots of hilarious snark and animated GIFs. It's what Woody would've done after all.
