Ohio State wins the weekend

0 Comments

Yes, yes, I know. Ohio State went into Champaign and knocked off Illinois 73-68 on Saturday.

Jared Sullinger had 27 points, 16 rebounds, and three blocks. Ohio State inched that much farther ahead of the Big Ten pack with the win, and with a showdown on Tuesday with Purdue, who is currently a game behind the Buckeyes in the Big Ten standings, Ohio State has a chance to now open a commanding lead in the conference race.

That is only a game, however.

This?

This is the stuff of legends:

Yes, that is Jared Sullinger, Aaron Craft, and Jon Diebler singing Miley Cyrus. Awesome.

I do have two questions, however. For starters, why is senior Jon Diebler involved in this video? This is the kind of thing that freshmen are supposed to have to do, right? You know, paying their dues and all?

Second of all, why is this video just being released now? Either the video took a looonnggg time to edit, or Columbus, OH, is currently exists in an alternate dimension where it is still 2009 on top 40 teeny-bopper radio stations. No one listens to Miley anymore. Its Firework or bust these days.

Get with the times, Buckeyes.
