The football season is a month away, and there is a full-force buzz around Columbus and Ohio State’s campus. Urban Meyer has arrived, ready to lead the Buckeyes to the greener pastures that seem to only be reserved for SEC teams.
But there is another team in town, and they are even allowed to play in the postseason this year. The basketball Buckeyes are coming off the school’s 11th trip to the Final Four, and expectations are high once again.
If the scarlet and gray hope to repeat their tournament successes from a season ago, or even compete in the treacherous Big Ten conference, the returning players are going to have to make up for the production that departed with Jared Sullinger and William Buford.
With that in mind, here is one thing that each returning starter needs to improve on before the season begins. Otherwise, it could be a much shorter March this time around.
