when did Baylor become good at basketball?  #7 seems a bit high for them.

btalbert25's picture

Didn't they make the Elite 8 in the 2010 tourney?  Or sweet 16 and almost knocked off someone to go to the Elite 8.  They were really good 2 seasons ago I know that much.

They do still have one of the best players in the country in Perry Jones.

Columbus to Pasadena: 35 hours.  We're on a road trip through the desert looking for strippers and cocaine... and Rose Bowl wins!

You heard it folks.... Value City is rocking right now!

We're fucked...Lebron is wearing our gear and there

I saw that... let's win despite him

Love me some Aaron Craft!

The Aaron Craft Turnometer is on overdrive! Taking the kids (Curry, Rivers) to school!

Man I'm fired up THAT WAS AWESOME!!!!!!!

Bucks's picture

That was one impressive display. Great few days we've had here. Craft. CRAFT. Gotta love Matta squads.

Type G's picture

The Big 4, baby!

Craft is like a cat! They should've showed a replay of that amazing steal he made.

From the start, you could tell from Sully's body language that he wasn't gonna let us lose this game.

Wish we could quit the LeBron hate. How many kids want DWade and Bron coming to thier games? Recruiting power. Show that dude love. Is your love for the Cavs greater than your love for the Buckeyes?

TheHumbleBuckeye's picture

^This.

 

Let it go, Cleveland fans. LeBron is a Buckeye. You can hate him when he comes back to Cleveland in a Heat uniform, but when he's in the Schott supporting our team, he's one of us.

ThirdLegLouie's picture

No doubt that LeBron repping the Buckeyes is a solid thing for recruiting purposes...doesn't mean I have to like him though, or the way he tries to talk to Buckeye QB's (first Pryor, and now Braxton). 

If you ain't a Silver Bullet, you're a target

No, it is not.  Great to see the bling in the stands to go along with a win NONE OF US thought in are homerist dreams.

I'm sorry for not being sorry.

Type G's picture

Ohio State rocks his shoes so even if he wasn't a real fan at heart he still is obligated to support us. Regardless, we just hate seeing his smug ass face. LeBron is NOT one of us.

Sully would disagree with your comment.

HolyBuckeye1093's picture

Look I'm not a Cleveland fan so I'm not going to make any ignorant statements like "get over it" but I am an Ohio State fan and a proud Ohio State alum and the fact that Lebron is also a big Ohio State fan and showed his Buckeye pride tonight in one of the biggest games in OSU history is amazing and is great for THE Ohio State University and that is what matters the most! The Schott was rocking tonight, it was an incredible atmosphere, and most importantly, we showed why we are the #1 team in the Nation!!

onetwentyeight's picture

i WILL say it: GET OVER IT, CLEVELAND FANS! The entire state does not share in your obsessive victim complex with regards to one dude leaving your team. 

Lebron's an OSU fan and so are we. As far as I'm concerned we all were on the same side tonight and should've shown him love for coming out and supporting OUR guys.

RIP. Florida

RIP. Duke

next up: Kansas.

That will be three of the past five NCAA champions.

tampa buckeye's picture

We are number 1 next week hands down.  

The defense was off the charts.

 Thomas was a beast.  

That was the best post team we will play all year and we killed them.  Anything less then a national title would be a huge disappointment. 

btalbert25's picture

UK plays UNC Saturday, if they beat St. Johns and UNC no way they drop from number 1.  At the same time, I'd rather be number 1 in late March/April, then December.

As long as we win our last game...

Great game and great chat tonight, folks.

Seems like there are a lot of folks in the DC/NoVa area. Let me know if anyone's interested in meeting up somewhere for a happy hour in DC or the Arlington area.

George Clooney is once again assembling his posse of master thieves for Ocean's 14... this time, he wants to add Aaron Craft.

Colin's picture

Aaron Craft is the new Matt Damon.

ih8rolltyde's picture

Wow, didn't see that coming.

Great team effort, love the way we share the sugar.

Damn it feels good to be a Buckeye.

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

osukdawg76's picture

This team is flat out fun to watch.  I was confident going into the game, but I never expected a 20 point blowout.  This team is just damn good.

I, for one, welcome our new coaching overlords.

I normally can't stand ESPN's comment section but this one made me laugh:

"Espn sources say molestation charges will be handed down to tOSU....Men playing with boys tonight at Value City Arena."

 

inappropriate? maybe

AFBuckeye's picture

Definetly poor taste.  Subject should never be a joking matter.  Appalled that someone would make this comment.

“We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; for he today that sheds his blood with me shall be my brother.”  

Buckeye Chuck's picture

Vitale shut up about Coach K for 10 seconds in there somewhere. THAT'S how dominating this win was.

AFBuckeye's picture

I've watched every game so far, and though they have been relatively easy wins, I wasn't super impressed with the effort.  That is until tonight.  The kids flat out know how to ball.  Craft is an animal that is going to tick off every opposing coach this year.  But everyone of those coaches would take him in a heartbeat.  Glad Pearl screwed up!!  This team is disciplined and driven. 

Damn, I'm proud to be part of the Buckeye Nation!!!!

Anyone know if Urban was at the Schott tonight?

“We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; for he today that sheds his blood with me shall be my brother.”  

Bucks's picture

He was not in attendance. We did have someone in the liveblog who said his brother was at the game & behind Gene. When asked he said he was recruiting.

Sounds about right with the steady influx of recruit comments regarding contact with Urban.

Also, agreed. Heck of a game/effort this evening.

onetwentyeight's picture

Apparently Urbz is already busy recruiting like a man possessed. Someone sent me a story about how he's sent 450 texts since the presser last night.

Dom Tiberi tweeted this out earlier and had to put it somewhere. I had no idea Canadian Football could be taken to the level of a 73 yr old throwing a pretty decent right hook (73lol).

Warning: Elderly Violence! Cane swinging!

I tried to post yesterday...that's Joe Kapp!

I just have to say, for the abuse the basketball crowds get on here, tonight's crowd was awesome.  Also, the nut house is an awesome nickname for the arena.  I love it.
