How Oden performs this weekend against Hibbard....and possible the Florida guys if OSU/Florida meet up again will prove a lot to me regarding Oden. I want to see how he matches up with another big body and NBA level player facing him.

Who said a center has to score 20 a game to dominate? CENTER IS A DEFENSIVE POSITION FIRST. Offense is a bonus. If you can get 15pts 10-12 rebounds, and bad ass defense out of your center, you are money.

While mostly true....I can see the excuse already being laid if Oden struggles and Hibbard dominates or does well.
Greg Oden has been a non factor in the last two games, and shockingly, the Buckeyes have seemed to be a better team without him on the court. It isn’t that the Oden does not have the tools to get it done underneath (when he is not in foul trouble), it just appears that the Buckeyes are not really sure how to use him and inexplicably, have struggled to get him the ball. One thing is clear, if the Buckeyes are going to play with the big boys, UNC and Florida, they are going to need to discover Oden and Oden is going to have to come up big on the glass. Joey Dorsey seems to think that he has the size and drive to play with Oden, but I am not sure that he really knows what he is dealing with. Oden’s post techniques are such that he would be a difficult defensive match up in the NBA. Let’s face it, there isn’t much you can do to affect the baby hook of a seven footer. Dorsey’s best hope is that Oden continues to push to hard on offense and draws those silly offensive fouls that he really does not need. He has the size to operate in close quarters, so he does not need to push it so hard to generate space. These mistakes have cost him two crucial fouls per game in the Buckeyes last two games. Judging by the way that he was officiated late in the Tennessee game, Oden now has a “Charles Oakley” like reputation, so every time a player hits the ground around him, Oden is going to get the foul.
