This all sounds impressive, but Woody Hayes is a believer in the old theory that you lose a game for every sophomore you start. Nine sophomores; nine defeats. He says he does not see how his young Bucks have a chance to beat Michigan State and Purdue. "We'll be better all around." he admits, "but we're not that good yet. We're too young, and we don't have quite enough people. But don't count us out. We're on the way back. People had better watch out for us soon."
The fact is they had better watch out right now. Woody loves to hide in the forest and ambush a favorite. Purdue, can you hear that rustling in the woods?
