Buckeyes are off to a great start this year going 14-0 and picking up their first win in conference play.
So far this is a better team than the Greg Oden led 2006-2007 team that lost the NCAA champion game to Florida, but they still have a long way to go to match the achievements of the Jerry Lucas teams of the early 60s. Those teams not only went to the finals three years in a row, but the 1960-61 team followed up its National Championship by going 27-0. Their only defeat was in the championship to Cincinnati (70-65, in overtime!) The next year they came back and did it again going 26-1 before losing the rematch with Cincinnati 71-59.
