Connor Lemons, Land-Grant Holy Land

Despite all of the weird negativity that people were throwing at the Buckeye men’s basketball team after Diallo’s announcement, they are still in really good shape to contend next season.

Ohio State is good at sports other than football, you know.

Like the women’s tennis team. Exhibit a:

Exhibit b:

The baseball team had a pretty darn good weekend as well.


And now for something completely different...

If you didn’t get hyped watching that video, I don’t know if we can be friends.
