The 10th ranked Ohio State Buckeyes begin one of the most grueling grinds in college basketball this season as they head north to the Crisler Center to take on the arch rival Michigan Wolverines. After that, they'll return to Value City Arena to play host to the nation's number one ranked team, the Indiana Hoosiers. Of course the Hoosiers were responsible for Michigan's second loss of the year this past Saturday. The other? These very same Ohio State Buckeyes.

Of course, the Bucks will certainly have their work cut out for them as they head into this one as 7.5 point underdogs. Michigan possesses one of, if not the, most efficient offense(s) in the country. And as you'll have browbeat into your head from now until the two teams (probably) meet again in the big Ten tournament, they're lead by Columbus native son, Trey Burke.

Below is your The Game, basketball edition, GameThread. Even though the Buckeyes aren't expected to win this one, there's no reason to be nasty. If some visiting Wolverines swing by, well, treat them the way Woody would: with snark and GIFs. I'm pretty sure Woody Hayes loved GIFs.

Go Buckeyes.
