Ron Lewis has us all confused.
Was he trash-talking or giving Florida respect on Sunday?
Maybe a little bit of both.
The Ohio State guard said he considers the Buckeyes to be a great team. Florida, he said, is a good team.
Later, Lewis was asked to clarify what he meant.
“They’re a good team. I look at it as a bad team, middle team and then a good team,” he said. “That’s the top. So if you want a great team, you look at the Bulls.”
To which Ohio State coach Thad Matta said, “I’m glad Ron clarified his definition.”
Or did he?
Joakim Noah didn’t think so.
“Oh my God, he said that?” Noah said Sunday. “What a bad person.”
