Ohio State-Walsh this isn't. As of noon today, Buckeye basketball is officially back. Some familiar faces return to suit up in the scarlet and gray once more: Amir Williams (who looked more aggressive and assertive than ever in the team's tune up exhibition game), Shannon Scott (who at least for last Sunday, is a starter), "Instagram" Sam Thompson (who appears GIF-ier than ever), the venerable Lenzelle Smith Jr., and of course Aaron "#SWOON" Craft.

On the opposing sidelines is multiple time NCAA rules violator, Todd Bozeman. In fairness, outside of an incident in which he slapped one of his own players during a timeout in a game against South Carolina State, Bozeman has been a model coach during his time in Baltimore. Bozeman's guided the Bears to two NCAA tournament appearances, including Morgan State's first ever in school history. Last season, they were four points away from a third. Though the Buckeyes will be heavy favorites, the X&O's are relatively strong with this one.

The following is your Ohio State-Morgan State GameThread. Whether you're tuning in on 97.1 The Fan FM like many of us or opting to pay for the online stream at the Big Ten Digital Network's website, we're excited to have you spend your afternoon with us. Be reasonable to one another, and above all else, never forget: we have a GIF Oracle. In order to leverage its infinite powers, type "@oracle gif me" or "@oracle gif me subject" where the word subject is replaced by one of these categories in the comments.
