"Purdue going to pull off the upset today".

 

No you moron commentator, Purdue is the favorite.

SilverBullets's picture

How dare you speak logic

Reens's picture

Actually OSU is giving Purdue 1 point. Sorry...hate to side with announcers.

tomcollins's picture

Looks like it depends on the book.  It was Purdue -1 for just about everywhere last I checked.  Either way, way to go on a limb with the "upset" prediction.

Reens's picture

Yeah no kidding. I think in their head they're expecting collective gasps when they make the pick.

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

we have great inbounds plays

Powers's picture

whistle happy crew

TLB's picture

Was hoping we wouldnt see valentine since he did the late game last night.

Bish's picture

No kidding, this is his 5th game is 6 days

TLB's picture

NCAA needs to regulate that better.  You figure last nights game wasnt over until after 11.  He then has to drive at least 3 hours for a 1pm game next day.  No way he can be at the top of his game.

TLB's picture

hahaha..........Diebler

 

TLB's picture

Not gonna get a call.  Thad might need to light up those zebras

madhatterhater's picture

Boiler up makes me want to puke.

go bucks

TLB's picture

Horrible call......again

 

tomcollins's picture

"We have to stop with the double teaming of Sullinger and trust that JaJuan Johnson and maybe even Travis Carroll can limit him defensively. I rally don't care if Sullinger scores 50 as long as we don't get beat by perimeter shooters again."

 

Looks like they are getting what they want.

TLB's picture

Jeez.....Thomas got absolutely pounded

Bish's picture

Well, they started out calling everything, then they stopped, if they are going to call it tight they at least need to keep calling it tight.

Turnovers turnovers turnovers turnovers turnovers

madhatterhater's picture

Number 50 from Purdue is straight mugging OSU out there.

go bucks

poguemahone's picture

A whistle against Purdue? Are those allowed?

TLB's picture

And they booed.

BuddhaBuck's picture

Another awful officiating crew

Don't text while driving.

poguemahone's picture

I understand you can't whistle everything down low in a game like this, but I'd like to see the bad calls a little more evenly dispersed. It was brutal at Wisconsin and it's looking brutal here again today.

Powers's picture

How is Verne still allowed to announce games

SilverBullets's picture

Yea he's as bad as the refs

Powers's picture

Free Throws again....

TLB's picture

Valentine called that foul after the shot was missed.

osubucks10's picture

bad officiating so far.. JJ misses lay-up so automatic foul?

Powers's picture

its bad officiating all over folks... not just for us

TLB's picture

true, typical B1G

BuddhaBuck's picture

Score at the 6:20 mark

Officials: 30

Ohio State: 22

Purdue: 19

Don't text while driving.

osubucks10's picture

obv were partial towards bucks, but how was the last purdue bucket not a travel?

osubucks10's picture

like is that JJ bucket a joke foul?

TLB's picture

They dont ever expect Thomas to pass

tomcollins's picture

So that's why Thomas never passes.

poguemahone's picture

So Thomas is a one-and-done? Really?

TLB's picture

Thad should get a T in 2nd half if this continues

 

osubucks10's picture

thad needs to get his team in order... wide open 3s to et moore.. that cant happen

osubucks10's picture

having buford and sully back in the second half should make a big difference

RBuck's picture

I just saw why Thomas isn't getting the pt.

tomcollins's picture

I hate, hate, hate when coaches take players out prematurely for foul trouble.  It's like "Oh no, he might foul out and I won't get to play him, so I better take him out and not play him!"

TLB's picture

big wreck.  Johnson, Gordon, Biffle, Martin

TLB's picture

what were they singing

tomcollins's picture

LOL @ Purdue fans singing Miley.  So much better than Diebler Swallows

Buckeyebrowny919's picture

confused..if it was a shooting foul...why didn't the basket count?

To give anything less than your best, is to sacrifice the gift - Steve Prefontaine

Powers's picture

way too quick of shots

TLB's picture

game is out of hound.  Thad needs to work the officials

poguemahone's picture

I'm proud of Sullinger. I would have punched a ref by now.

TLB's picture

Frustrating game

tomcollins's picture

So many stupid turnovers, not happy about seeing the team make so many dumb mistakes.

BuddhaBuck's picture

Wow. Whistle BEFORE the contact. Like the refs predicted the foul. Ladies & Gentlemen, we have Nostradamus in stripes.

This game is completely and utterly unwatchable.

Don't text while driving.

TLB's picture

Guess you have to punch someone to get a foul.  nice one Craft

TLB's picture

haha.......Vern is so used to them calling it on us

SilverBullets's picture

TV Teddy Valentine Unreal

TLB's picture

Ok.............so Purdue is allowed to run over Buford, but he can't touch one of them.

TLB's picture

lighty faking himself out

TLB's picture

Here comes our run

madhatterhater's picture

Sully just got assaulted.

go bucks

TLB's picture

foul 30 feet from the ball to make up for the previous noncall

madhatterhater's picture

Apparently its ok to jump on top of Sully's back.

go bucks

TLB's picture

What does Sully have to do to get a calll?

TLB's picture

rewound to take a look.  dudes foot was down on the over and back

madhatterhater's picture

Ok, now the games going to get called tight?????

go bucks

argyle182021's picture

I love how the fans are booing after that foul.  If it wasn't a foul it was a basket.  Are they that ignorant?

DMC's picture

Wow, Lighty is having an awful game.

TLB's picture

Valentine is an embarrassment.  Both ways.

slippy's picture

Lighty does not contribute to this team anymore.  He's gotten worse almost every game since B10 play started.

slippy's picture

Having said that, the whole team sucks today.

TLB's picture

yeah, kinda haggard, no flow to their game

slippy's picture

Offense has looked like crap for about 5 games now.  Shut Diebler down and the whole offense closes.

Reens's picture

I don't think that's true at all. It was at one time, but not anymore. Have you seen Buford this year?

slippy's picture

One player playing well one offense != good offense.

DotThei's picture

I said more or less the same on the O-Zone during the game and almost had my head taken off. But this is both true and very worrisome as Lighty is a senior and one of the most experienced players we have. His mistakes seem largely mental--sloppy turnovers, forced shots, and lazy defense--so you have to question where his head is at as we enter the stretch run and tournament play. Personally, I'd like to see him on the bench and/or called out by coach. It may be going that way as I've read he called out the team for being "soft" in the locker room after the game.

TLB's picture

haha.....Valentine with a touch foul.  Guys on both teams shaking their heads

 

DMC's picture

If Moore's gonna play like this, they deserve to win.

Joe Beale's picture

OSU with 17 turnovers and only 8 assists.  

Dean's picture

Plenty of those turnovers have to be on the officials, though - guys were getting just mugged down low and losing the ball.  Unbelievable officiating.

TLB's picture

10 Buckeye leaves to the asst coach that got Valentine fired up

TLB's picture

Disappointing but not unexpected.  tOSU is the better team and with an upgrade of officials in the B1G tourney, we'll beat them.

Moore was awesome today.

SilverBullets's picture

Well Put.  Some better decisions on the offensive end and lack of wide open looks on the defensive end were needed as well

NoVA Buckeye's picture

the refs were doing everything to help purdue wins, but that doesnt matter when you go turn the ball over, miss every shot you take, and let them make every shot they take. poor performance, we were lucky to lose by 11

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

TLB's picture

Funny, but their blogs were bitching about officials too.  Just shows you there is a problem.  I wish the B1G would address it.

hangonskokie's picture

Top to bottom, I'll take OSU, Purdue, and Wisc over any
other conference's top 3.

tomcollins's picture

We are in risk of not winning the Big Ten if we don't beat Wisconsin.  Ugh.

TLB's picture

Illinois first

tomcollins's picture

That game matters very little in the scheme of things.  We lose there, we still need to beat Wisconsin.  We win there, we still need to beat Wisconsin.  But if we lose there and @ PSU or something stupid, yeah, that hurts.

tomcollins's picture

I honestly don't care if we win or lose that game.  It comes down to Wisconsin.  We MUST win that game.  Lose another game, I don't care, just don't lose to Wisconsin.
