PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
"Purdue going to pull off the upset today".
No you moron commentator, Purdue is the favorite.
How dare you speak logic
Actually OSU is giving Purdue 1 point. Sorry...hate to side with announcers.
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.
Yeah no kidding. I think in their head they're expecting collective gasps when they make the pick.
"if you put a buckeye on the railroad tracks, the train will crash"
we have great inbounds plays
whistle happy crew
Was hoping we wouldnt see valentine since he did the late game last night.
No kidding, this is his 5th game is 6 days
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.
Not gonna get a call. Thad might need to light up those zebras
Boiler up makes me want to puke.
"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.
Jeez.....Thomas got absolutely pounded
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
Number 50 from Purdue is straight mugging OSU out there.
A whistle against Purdue? Are those allowed?
And they booed.
Another awful officiating crew
Don't text while driving.
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.
How is Verne still allowed to announce games
Yea he's as bad as the refs
Free Throws again....
Valentine called that foul after the shot was missed.
bad officiating so far.. JJ misses lay-up so automatic foul?
its bad officiating all over folks... not just for us
true, typical B1G
Score at the 6:20 mark
Ohio State: 22
obv were partial towards bucks, but how was the last purdue bucket not a travel?
like is that JJ bucket a joke foul?
They dont ever expect Thomas to pass
So that's why Thomas never passes.
So Thomas is a one-and-done? Really?
Thad should get a T in 2nd half if this continues
thad needs to get his team in order... wide open 3s to et moore.. that cant happen
having buford and sully back in the second half should make a big difference
I just saw why Thomas isn't getting the pt.
"It's just another case of there you are". ~ Doc (1918-2012)
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!"
Carroll is a thug
big wreck. Johnson, Gordon, Biffle, Martin
what were they singing
LOL @ Purdue fans singing Miley. So much better than Diebler Swallows
What are they saying now?
confused..if it was a shooting foul...why didn't the basket count?
"Winter is coming" - Urban Meyer
way too quick of shots
game is out of hound. Thad needs to work the officials
I'm proud of Sullinger. I would have punched a ref by now.
So many stupid turnovers, not happy about seeing the team make so many dumb mistakes.
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.
Guess you have to punch someone to get a foul. nice one Craft
haha.......Vern is so used to them calling it on us
TV Teddy Valentine Unreal
Ok.............so Purdue is allowed to run over Buford, but he can't touch one of them.
lighty faking himself out
Here comes our run
Sully just got assaulted.
foul 30 feet from the ball to make up for the previous noncall
Apparently its ok to jump on top of Sully's back.
What does Sully have to do to get a calll?
rewound to take a look. dudes foot was down on the over and back
Ok, now the games going to get called tight?????
I love how the fans are booing after that foul. If it wasn't a foul it was a basket. Are they that ignorant?
Wow, Lighty is having an awful game.
Valentine is an embarrassment. Both ways.
Lighty does not contribute to this team anymore. He's gotten worse almost every game since B10 play started.
Having said that, the whole team sucks today.
yeah, kinda haggard, no flow to their game
Offense has looked like crap for about 5 games now. Shut Diebler down and the whole offense closes.
I don't think that's true at all. It was at one time, but not anymore. Have you seen Buford this year?
One player playing well one offense != good offense.
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.
haha.....Valentine with a touch foul. Guys on both teams shaking their heads
If Moore's gonna play like this, they deserve to win.
OSU with 17 turnovers and only 8 assists.
Plenty of those turnovers have to be on the officials, though - guys were getting just mugged down low and losing the ball. Unbelievable officiating.
10 Buckeye leaves to the asst coach that got Valentine fired up
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.
Well Put. Some better decisions on the offensive end and lack of wide open looks on the defensive end were needed as well
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
Funny, but their blogs were bitching about officials too. Just shows you there is a problem. I wish the B1G would address it.
Top to bottom, I'll take OSU, Purdue, and Wisc over any
other conference's top 3.
We are in risk of not winning the Big Ten if we don't beat Wisconsin. Ugh.
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.
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.
