  1. I think the Buckeye’s made some resounding statements over the weekend with a couple comfortable wins. I can’t wait for Aaron Goldhammer’s OSU ripping, negative recap of their games. No doubt, we will have to hear about the 11-2 hole the Buckeye hoopsters started the game in yesterday. The 7 for 7 in 3’s for Lighty will be considered lucky for “The Luckeyes” as he often refers to them…what a joke, Aaron! Maybe he will give Craft a little credit for 15 assists and only 2 turnovers before going onto his usual barage of: his top 5 things he won’t miss about Carmello Anthony playing for his beloved Denver Nuggets (YAWN!), some BS about his figure skating prowess that ended at age 12, or God knows what other boring”Aaron” topics. Although, even though pretty much every credible source nationally has picked the Buckeye hoopsters as the best shot at winniing it all, he will have 13 reasons why they won’t!?

    This continues to be an absolute joke as an OSU affiliate! If this is the only way Aaron thinks Rizzo’s show can get ratings, it even more disgusting. What really IS happening, is that people are tuning out as they are sick of hearing the non-stop Buckeye bashing from Goldie. Maybe Rizzo will put his foot down sometime? After all, Craig K. (station owner) did say a couple months on the air that Rizzo has final say as to the flow of HIS show??!! We shall see…
