Ohio State basketball fans probably aren't too fond of Jim Boeheim right now, especially after the Buckeyes just lost to the Syracuse Orange. However, the legendary head coach made certain comments after the game that should make fans smile in Columbus.

Following his answers to the media about the showdown between Ohio State and Syracuse, Boeheim talked about the Buckeyes' recent showing on the gridiron. If we're being honest, the entire sports world was buzzing over their dominant win over the Michigan Wolverines.

During his press conference, Boeheim revealed he picked the Buckeyes to win by 20 points. His reasoning behind this prediction is pretty simple.

It appears that Boeheim has tons of respect for Urban Meyer's ability to coach.

Well, Ohio State football fans can't be too mad at Boeheim now.

The Buckeyes will need another marvelous coaching performance from Meyer on Saturday, when they face Northwestern in the Big Ten Championship.

As for Syracuse, the Orange will certainly enjoy their upset win on the way back to the Carrier Dome.
