Another bracket projection is up this morning and if you happening to be looking for Ohio State, you are going to have to look down. Way down.
On Dec. 15, the Buckeyes were 9-0 heading into their game at Minnesota. A win would have made Ohio State the No. 1 team in the AP Top 25 poll the following day.
That win didn't come. The Buckeyes lost to the Gophers 84-71, but even then nobody expected that to be just the first of many losses. After all, Ohio State won its next two games, including a victory over Kentucky in the CBS Sports Classic in Las Vegas.
Since then, Ohio State has lost six of seven, including a home game to Wisconsin and Thursday's 62-59 home loss to Minnesota, giving the Gophers the season sweep.
