    Wasn't the balls fault. We only had a 1.7% chance of getting the no.1 pick.

    To put that in perspective, if my calculations are correct Ben Wallace has 96% better chance of making a FT than us winning the number 1 pick.

    Love the conspiracy theories floating about at the moment. Makes me lol hard.

    9th pick is very much serviceable. As I have said elsewhere, I think there is a lot to look forward to next year.

    Kind of makes you wish Ben Gordon would not have gotten hot in those 3rd quarters near the end of the season after we were mathematically eliminated from the playoffs.

    Oh well. Look what we got at #15 a few years ago.

    On the bright side - Last #9 was Rodney White so we are practically guaranteed to beat that.

    John Henson is the safest pick if he is still around.

    IF you want to go with a high risk high reward, Perry Jones and (if available.. which I think that could happen) Andre Drummond.

    Don't know why, but I woke up this morning hoping for a miracle. A Davis/Monroe front court miracle.

    Hey coynejeremy!

    Sup Bill Laimbeer. Yeah, I've been asleep for awhile. Then the draft yesterday woke me up. You still teaching? I had to quit this year in the middle of the year due to health reasons. I think I am finally done with the teaching gig. 25 years is a long time. I am officially burnt out. I gave it all I had each day and don't think there is anything else to give. Been away from it since December and have not looked back. My sympathies to all those people heading into the teaching profession nowadays.

    Nemo, no sweatervest mourning here. Although I do think a mountain was made out of a mole hill for that whole thing. The biggest travesty in my opinion was the NCAA letting the offenders go to the bowl game, and they are penalizing all the innocent people by not letting them go to next years. But that's the new America. Up is down. Right is wrong. Hot is cold. We've lost our common sense as a nation. Ugh.

    Wow. Now I'm depressed. I think I will check out the humor thread here and catch up on some jokes. That was always one of my favorite threads around here! :biggrin:

    Wow. My first post here was brutal. I was going to clean it up but not seeing the edit button around here. I'm sure it is right in front of my face laughing at me right now but no can see.

    Ahhh. I see the edit button on the two I just posted. Me thinks the button is on a timer. See. Buckeyes can learn some things at times!
