No, these aren’t the Five biggest stories (will he or won’t he[1. Be fired] is numero uno obviously) but these are the five things I’m most intrigued by heading into Travis Ford’s farewell the 2012-2013 season.

If you have a more titillating nugget you’d like to have parsed, let us know in the comments and we’ll consider it[2. Not that anybody reads about hoops anyway, amirite? Who’s starting at QB this weekend?!?!?].

Here are my five:

1. Can OSU become a positionless team?

2. Where will all the scoring come from?

3. Can Marcus Smart save the Travis Ford era?

4. How much will OSU miss Brian Williams?

5. Who is poised to make “the leap”?

I’ll do my best to try and dissect them over the next few weeks[3. I’m sad “is Mason Cox the best white dunker in America?” didn’t make the cut.].

Happy hoops season.
