At first it looked like a good old-fashioned ass-beating, but the No. 16 Ohio State Buckeyes (13-5, 6-3) orchestrated a furious comeback this past weekend in Mackey Arena, falling just short of the Boilermakers, 81-78. The guys talk about why it’s okay to feel good about some aspects of that game, while also not giving the Buckeyes a pass for the things that clearly cost them a huge road victory.

Connor and Justin also examined what the expectations should be for Ohio State men’s basketball on a year-to-year basis. Are the Buckeyes a blue-blood that should be competing for a national championship every season? Are they a football school that also has a competitive basketball program? Somewhere in between, perhaps?

The fellas close it out by briefly reacting to the news of Jim Harbaugh spurning the NFL and returning to Michigan, and telling listeners what to expect from Iowa this evening when the fighting Frans come to town.
