It's officially official this time. Greg Oden's going pro. But it gets worse.

He's taking Mike Conley Jr and Daequan Cook with him.

Is it too much to ask Oden to drop in the draft far enough to become a Cavalier? Well, yes it is....since the Cavs don't have a first-round selection this year.

As far as the Buckeyes go, I'm not happy, but I have faith in Thad Matta and his next crop of recruits. It would have been nice to see Oden alongside the new kids, but I do not believe the doomsday predictions.

If anybody tells you we'll be finished without Oden and Conley, ask them if they can remember when the last time Ohio State won a Big Ten Championship without those two players.

The answer is 13 months ago. We'll be fine.
