    I met Jim Jackson Today

    At an AAU tournament in Northern Virginia. He took the time to spend about 15 minutes just talking hoops with my son and me. He gave me an O-H when he saw my Ohio State hat.

    A couple of interesting things. He expects Aaron Craft to play a big role next year at the point. Feels that he's a true playmaking point guard and that he'll fit into Thad Matta's offense. He also expects Jared Sullinger to play the 4 and to show up big all year.

    It was a thrill to talk with JJ and I was impressed that he took that much time to speak with us. His son plays for a West Virginia team and although he seemed a little disappointed that he's not being recruited by Ohio State he does seem to be getting D1 looks from quite a few schools. No picture or autograph requests, just a few minutes with a Buckeye basketball legend.

    Dude, awesome story! JJ was a great guy when I met him down here in Houston during his stint with the Rockets; still have a hat he signed for me! Didn't even beg him or anything, he just said it's nice to see a Buckeye fan so far south and told me he'd love to give me an autograph. Even spent about 10 minutes talking Rockets basketball and OSU football. Great guy, and I'm glad you had a chance to run into him!

    Met him after the IU/OSU basketball game.

    Awesome experience. Took pictures with me and my friend. Like others, we talked for a LONG time (10-15 minutes). Talked about how amazing ET is, St. John's Arena, his time at OSU, IU basketball program/fans, etc. Also gave us an "O-H" as he left. Very personable man. You can tell he bleeds S&G.

    Jimmy leads the upstart Mavericks with 27 points. But it is not enough to stop Hakeem's 41.

    At the end of the BTN's basketball recap show, that have a segment called 'The Final Shot'. They asked Jimmy Jackson about the comments that Gary Williams made recently about the ACC being as good as the Big Ten this year. Jimmy said that a coach is supposed to speaks up for his own league, but then rattled off stats that had the Big Ten with a better RPI, more teams in the top-50 and more in the top-25.

    Then he said "I love the competitive nature in Gary Williams because he was the coach at Ohio State. He recruited me to Ohio State - he didn't talk to me when he left, but he recruited me, and he went to Maryland."

    Dave Revsine laughed and said that was a 'final shot' like 20 years in the making. Jimmy said "Might have been."
