TIPOFF FAVORITE STUDY TABLE TELEVISION RADIO
4:00PM ET Ohio State (-8) Preview | Game Notes CBS OSU Basketball Affiliates

The final home game of the 2010-11 season is not just an opportunity to avenge an earlier loss and abuse a visiting coach, but it's chance to finish perfect at the Schott and send this senior class into the tournament on a roll. With a win, Eddie Days, Dallas Lauderdale, Jon Diebler and David Lighty will finish 37-1 at home their final two seasons and in the case of the last three, are all key contributors to the nation's top-ranked team.

Thanks for an entertaining regular season of basketball, gentlemen.

Lighty will dominate today.

Nice Scumbag Bo.  Not a chill dude.

I'm watching the game from Marlborough, MA.  I hope our fans go ape-pooh-nuts BUT NO SPITTING!!!!  

TLB's picture

Once again, the game before ours is going to run long.

Powers's picture

yup. this happens every time on CBS. their coverage runs rediculously long

dr green's picture

What"s the over/under on Indiana State-Missouri State going to OT?

TLB's picture

each team still has 2 time outs to use

 

Chris Lauderback's picture

Ceremony to honor the seniors was concise and to the point. Seemed Lighty got the biggest ovation. This arena is on fire today.

741's picture

Can we get a split picture CBS? WTF?!!

Chris Lauderback's picture

Starters are just now being introduced. Still 5 min from tipoff, probably.

Chris Lauderback's picture

they might even have to wait a few min longer cuz all the pyrotechnics they shot off have left the arena smokey

coconnection12's picture

Yea, this is rather ridiculous. at least ESPN does a good job with timing, and showing the viewers both games.

Chris Lauderback's picture

it's go time. teams in the jump circle.

TLB's picture

and we are still watching MVC game

OHIOST1087's picture

This MVC game BETTER NOT go into OT!

Chris Lauderback's picture

6-5 buckeyes...dallas, sully, wb scored, Talyro with a 3

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

The connection at this rank hotel sucks and the video keeps buffering.....damn it!   What's happening?

OHIOST1087's picture

Hallelujah... Thanks!

TLB's picture

Buckeye Fans crashed the CBS site

dr green's picture

Anyone know where to get streaming audio?

TLB's picture

Cant believe channel 10 didnt change over.  Their phones are probably on fire.

Chris Lauderback's picture

14-11 buckeyes...wisky just called timeout after WB putback a diebs missed 3.

Bobcat04's picture

I hate CBS.  After the obligatory tourney coverage, I'm never watching them again.

TLB's picture

My head is going to explode

 

Once they get to the game, it will be time for the 12 min. tv timeout

ih8rolltyde's picture

There should be a rule that if they run the previous game long, they shouldn't make us watch commercials till there is f**kin 7 minutes gone in the game.

****igan smells like old water that hot dogs were boiled in.  FACT

Chris Lauderback's picture

Still under TV timeout right now. 13:11 to play. 15-11 good guys.

TLB's picture

There should be a rule against MVC games taking 2 hours 20 min

Chris Lauderback's picture

Thats 2 fouls on leuer with 12min left. Big.

TLB's picture

whew.  I was wondering when we'd get a commercial break.

Bobcat04's picture

+1  What a perfect time for a much-needed commercial break.

ih8rolltyde's picture

I'm taking shots per commercial..... I may be dead by the half.

****igan smells like old water that hot dogs were boiled in.  FACT

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

The crowd doesn't sound very hype. BS touch fouls b2b.

Bobcat04's picture

In a final farewell to the B1G, the refs are calling some ticky-tack stuff today.

TLB's picture

It's amazing how differently the flow of this game is compared to Duck-UNC.  B1G really needs to take a hard look at their officials.

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

I dig the grey jerseys.

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

That was a total pass from WB.

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

BULLSH*T! foul on DT.  Not sure I can watch anymore.

TLB's picture

Moving screen............are you kidding me?

ih8rolltyde's picture

I also really like the smoke gray unis. The Buckeye leaves down the back are sick.

****igan smells like old water that hot dogs were boiled in.  FACT

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

I support your hate with my hate for Bo Ryan.

Bobcat04's picture

Gets a free TO out of it.  Just like flopping in soccer.

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

That's a 3 Deal With It!

Bobcat04's picture

I guess it cost them one.  Good.

ih8rolltyde's picture

I also add my hate for bo ryan and submit my disdain for that mop headed freak as well

****igan smells like old water that hot dogs were boiled in.  FACT

Bobcat04's picture

See that hate and raise it that douche is in foul trouble.  

Powers's picture

i laugh every time they show them singing that song. I love this team so much

Powers's picture

FEAR THE FRO!!

Bobcat04's picture

One area for improvement:  Second chance points.  We're giving up a lot.

Bobcat04's picture

Today, we've got the best three-point shooter on the floor.  And in B1G history.

OHIOST1087's picture

I love 3-bler!... Deal with THAT Bo!

741's picture

WHUUUUT?!!!

 

ih8rolltyde's picture

It has to be fun to be able to shoot like that.

****igan smells like old water that hot dogs were boiled in.  FACT

JakeBuckeye's picture

Our largest lead of the last game vs. Wisconsin was 47-32...

Other than that: Deal with it, bitches.

poguemahone's picture

I hope Matta is reminding them that is the exact same deficit (and score, I think?) at which Wisconsin began the comeback in Madison

 

Bobcat04's picture

If we can just guard the three, and limit them to one shot per possession, they're toast.

dr green's picture

Me too.

When are you going to replace RR in your avatar with that new guy at TSUN? And, how do you make it do that slide show thing?

tomcollins's picture

As soon as we beat his ass.

I actually made it for a Michigan guy who I made an avatar bet with for the game.  Total Denard/RRod knob slobber, so it was funny.

It's an animated gif, I found some website to make them.  Don't have the link anymore but there are a lot of them out there.

tomcollins's picture

Yes sir.  84-70.  I had no idea that the scoreboard for women's game went above 60.

Joe Beale's picture

Some suggestions for games in the 2nd half:

1. Drink every time Diebler hits a 3.

2. Drink every time Gus raises his voice on an OSU bucket.

3. Drink every time the camera shows Bo Ryan with a sour look on his face.

4. Drink on every ticky-tack foul call, regardless of team.

Have fun!

TLB's picture

The foul game could be extremely dangerous.

NewYorkBUCKEYE's picture

I think I'm about to pass out

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

You don't tug on Superman's cape, you don't spit into the wind, you don't pull the mask off the ol' Lone Ranger and you don't mess with the Sasquatch. I am tired of these commercials.

Chris Lauderback's picture

OSU 20-8 edge in pts in teh paint in 1st half. tied 6-6 on 2nd chance points

Bobcat04's picture

Horse**it possession call.  On an over-the-back.

Bobcat04's picture

Wisky had 3 straight resets to hit that 3.  We've GOT to limit them to 1 possession!

Joe Beale's picture

Another suggestion: drink on every BW3 commercial.

blazers34's picture

um, sullinger almost just made me piss myself.  glad he is ok

Bobcat04's picture

How is Josh Gasser killing us?

osukdawg76's picture

Give some love to the ladies as they are hammering Penn State for the Big Ten Title.

I, for one, welcome our new coaching overlords.

 

 

Bobcat04's picture

It's nice that they've found themselves and are playing up to potential.  It was really rocky for them for a bit.

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

Nice. Thanks for the update.

osukdawg76's picture

No problem. Lady Bucks officially Big Ten Champions. Lavender and Prahalis go for 23 each.

I, for one, welcome our new coaching overlords.

 

 

RedQueenRace's picture

Why can't we get defensive boards?

Bobcat04's picture

My thoughts exactly.  We're playing good defense, they just get 2-3 shots at it.

Bobcat04's picture

AND AGAIN, we stop them for 35 seconds and give up the 2nd chance points for an easy bucket.  For as well as we're playing, it feels like we should be up much more.

Bobcat04's picture

IF all Wisconsin can do is hit threes, THEN guard the three.

Joe Beale's picture

3rd foul on curly-boy.

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

How many fouls on fro-orange?

Bobcat04's picture

You've got to be kidding me.  The only team that kid plays well against is OSU.

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

I'm beginning to hate him like I hate Novak.

TLB's picture

Another moving screen.................zebras never cease to amaze

osukdawg76's picture

Eh...it was the right call. Just need to watch Lauer on the other end bailing out early on pick and rolls.

I, for one, welcome our new coaching overlords.

 

 

Bobcat04's picture

Refs are doing a good job of keeping this game close.  Nice job to control the tempo and not let it get out of hand.

TLB's picture

B1G is the only league that lets their officials do it.

BuckeyeChief's picture

Just getting in, been following on Gamecast...dumb ass question, but why did they give the Seniors old jerseys? Nostalgia? Cause that's what they wore for four years?

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

osukdawg76's picture

Tradition. Every senior gets his jersey framed.

I, for one, welcome our new coaching overlords.

 

 

BuckeyeChief's picture

No I meant old style jerseys. Not the newer ones.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Chris Lauderback's picture

Vrabel and Laurinaitis introduced to crowd during tv timeout. this place went batshit crazy

BuckeyeChief's picture

Are they chanting "Deal with it"?

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

Gus called out the flop

Bobcat04's picture

Nankivil didn't get that flop called in Cbus.

osukdawg76's picture

Wow...nice flop

I, for one, welcome our new coaching overlords.

 

 

741's picture

Did Sully pivot about seven times just there?

741's picture

HAHAHA! OMG Diebs.

TLB's picture

HAHAHAHAHA...........BITCHES

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

Love Deibs. Love him. Full on man crush and I don't care.

Bobcat04's picture

Diebler looks like his high school YouTube vids.  Insane.

osukdawg76's picture

Diebler's range starts in Dublin.

I, for one, welcome our new coaching overlords.

 

 

Bobcat04's picture

HORRIBLE foul call.  Sully didn't even leave his feet.  Refs are really trying to keep a lid on this one.

osukdawg76's picture

Yeah, that was a bad call.

I, for one, welcome our new coaching overlords.

 

 

TLB's picture

My 76-58 prediction is going to be a little shy

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

The deal with it rags in Bo's face are great

Joe Beale's picture

Deal with it, Bo!

tomcollins's picture

Love the hunger and passion this team is playing with.  They won't be happy til they win by 50.  What a way to finish the regular season.

Bobcat04's picture

Really?  No foul down low?

BuckeyeChief's picture

Sully is in Beast mode!

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

SilverBullets's picture

Entire team is in beast mode

Bobcat04's picture

Heard a "where is Taylor" chant.  I love it!  That's definitely a magical subplot is that Craft has punished that little bastard on defense all day.  Awesome.

TLB's picture

Only thing 3blind mice have done right all year

Roger's picture

30 point win, DEAL WITH IT!

Joe Beale's picture

Mission accomplished.  Revenge taken.  Badgers humiliated.  Life is good.

Bobcat04's picture

Time to get ripped!

Hootie159's picture

Are any of those 3-pt stats records?

osukdawg76's picture

28 point win and seven shy of hanging 100 on the Badgers.

This makes me smile.

I, for one, welcome our new coaching overlords.

 

 

JakeBuckeye's picture

Chills down my spine when Lighty and the seniors came off, especially Lighty.

DEAL WITH IT.

BuckeyeChief's picture

Really, really glad I skopped my run to watch that. Lighty will go down as one of my favorite all time Buckeyes. Not the greatest baller, but a jack of all trades. I am really glad we got to see him for 5 years in the Scarlet and Gray.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

ih8rolltyde's picture

Now that, is how you get some payback. What a performance. Deal with that bitches.

****igan smells like old water that hot dogs were boiled in.  FACT

Jason Priestas's picture

What a fun group to watch. Hopefully we get Purdue or Wisco on a neutral court next week for a rubber match win over one or both.

JakeBuckeye's picture

I'm content with this win over Wisconsin.

I want Purdue.

tomcollins's picture

Now who's ass do we beat in the finals?  I vote Purdue.  They got the last laugh.
