Editor's Note: Insider has teamed with Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook, long known as the Bible of college basketball, to provide a comprehensive look at all 327 Division I teams.

Tim O'Shea's second season at Ohio was flat out strange. Not Woody Allen, quirky strange. Try Stephen King, deranged strange.

The Bobcats were pushed to overtime seven times-the NCAA Division I record is eight. They went four overtimes against Akron and two each against Marshall and Western Michigan. In all, Ohio punched the overtime clock for 12 periods, two off the NCAA Division I record.
