go bucks

Nick's picture

Yeah its on ESPN I'm sure they will fix it but btn2go is nice for replays!

Conroy's picture

All that SEC speed on toUSC's roster scares me.

addman1405's picture

This game is also on ESPN (SEC on ESPN)

TheHumbleBuckeye's picture

The just gave the "SEC on ESPN" intro. Ha! Right. Because that's why ESPiN wanted this game. For South Carolina, right?

thatlillefty's picture

love the way we are passing the ball

Luke's picture

Well, the preview image was right in a way. I am crying.

addman1405's picture

‎*** LIK DIS IF U CRY EVERYTIM *** Sully get injured

TLB's picture

Doesn't look like they were looking at Plantar Fasciitis.....looked lower on the foot or on the side of the foot.

TLB's picture

did he smile at the end of that talk with Thad?

thatlillefty's picture

alright, lesgo Sully

Colin's picture

Sully decides when Sully plays. 

TLB's picture

haha..........the shove shot by Thomas

Seabass1974's picture

Is it just me or do the announcers sound like they are cheering for SC?

The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender. - Woody Hayes

TLB's picture

Not necessarily SC.............but SEC.  4letter has a lot of money invested in them

741's picture

Nah. Just trying to make a lopsided game appear to be interesting.

OSU by 15.

thatlillefty's picture

Aaron Craft defends the catch-and-shoot

Idaho Helga's picture

Not good. Foot? Back?

 

Seabass1974's picture

Man, I hope Sully isn't becoming the next Greg Odon.

The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender. - Woody Hayes

TLB's picture

I wish the B1G would get out of the TV contract with the 4letter.

Maybe in the next couple years NBC and their new sports network, or FOX or CBS or B1G Network will have more of these games

Seabass1974's picture

I might mute the game on the tv and pull up the local sports announcers for the game.

The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender. - Woody Hayes

TLB's picture

Dude took 4 steps

AcrossTheField11's picture

Our medical staff / trainers should be chastized for letting Sully play these last 2 games.  He needs weeks of solid rest (before we get into B1G schedule)... really effing up our chances at a B1G championship and good seed in the dance.

Time and change will surely show how firm they friendship... O-HI-O.

TLB's picture

Yeah.  We will need him against IU on the 31st

thatlillefty's picture

Sully is out with a bruised foot??? Tough it out kid

Seabass1974's picture

Maybe a bruise or might be broken, we dont know yet.

The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender. - Woody Hayes

thatlillefty's picture

guy steps on his foot and he immediately motions to be taken out of the game. What is that?

Bobcat04's picture

OSU goes from really good to mediocre without Sully.  With Buford eternally off his shot, Tank is all we have for scoring.  

Lighty played for a few minutes after he broke his foot a couple of years ago.  Then missed the rest of the season.  I hope that's not Sully, because there goes the year.  In December.

TLB's picture

I guess these guys think we should just end the season since Sully is out.

Bobcat04's picture

These horrible referees aren't helping much either.

Idaho Helga's picture

This is getting pretty chippy early.

thatlillefty's picture

That is a BS taunting call. We are getting homered

ShowThemOhiosHere's picture

Are these referees serious?  What a fucking joke.  These refs SUCK!

Class of 2010.

TLB's picture

Thanks to X and UC they will call that everytime.

Bobcat04's picture

How many players scream like that after a dunk?  All?

TLB's picture

Its ok if you are running the court, not looking over a guy.

Bobcat04's picture

USC shooting like Kansas.

Bobcat04's picture

Wish we had the Buford of his sophomore/junior year.  This version lays bricks.

Idaho Helga's picture

You have to wonder if Sully felt something in the foot since he asked to come out immediately. Hope not.

TLB's picture

Man, they push on every rebound

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

Even without Sully I would think we should be beating these guys. When can Ross play?

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

Also hoping they call more of those moving screens against SC.

johnblairgobucks's picture

Mike Patrick is like fingernails on a chalkboard.  Will say OSU has 3 months till March madness and they have some work to do.

Chris Lauderback's picture

Sounds like Sully is leaving the arena on crutches. Must not have x-ray machine on site?

johnblairgobucks's picture

yikes! Amir Williams....young man it's time we develope you into a solid starter.

Chris Lauderback's picture

confirmed. Sully offsite getting x-rays. 

TLB's picture

Pretty safe to assume he broke a small bone.

ColdBuckeye's picture

Wow! You've already looked at the X-rays? 8 out of 10 X-rays are negative. Always a precautionary option. 

TLB's picture

I have.  But I cant show it to you because of privacy issues.

TLB's picture

If our football team had admited to violations and cut scholarships yesterday and the 4letter was on campus for a basketball game, would they have gone this long into the game without mentioning it?

ColdBuckeye's picture

Give us some Sam Thompson!

johnblairgobucks's picture

yeah, I like me some Sam Tompson, bout now.  Sub dude in for Lenzelle.

TLB's picture

They checking the monitor for the travel on the other end?

Buckeye Chuck's picture

I said it a week ago: good times never seem to last around here. This game might not be lost, but the big dream is O-V-E-R.

For all of Matta's recruiting prowess, he apparently hasn't put much emphasis on the ability of his backcourt players to shoot. Shouldn't Sibert be starting to show a little something by now?

Sullinger is going to regret not heading to the NBA.

 

The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.

TLB's picture

hehe.........and people say I am negative

johnblairgobucks's picture

 The fat lady hasn't even gotten off her fat ass yet, let alone begin to warm up her vocal chords for the 2011/2012 season.  Spritz some Bailey's in your coffee and say "O-H!"

ColdBuckeye's picture

Magic 8 Ball: OSU wins by 6

Idaho Helga's picture

We should be killing these guys. We look a bit flat.

 

TLB's picture

I like "our" crowd.

741's picture

They had the O-H-I-O chant going earlier. Hahaha!

cplunk's picture

wow- a relatively meaningless game in a far away state and it sounds like its a home game for us about half the time. Way to travel, Buckeyes, way to travel. Screw it, this convinced me. Pain in the butt though it will be, horrible offenses and all, I'm going to the Gator Bowl.

buckeyenut10's picture

You're a gentleman and a scholar.

Nik's picture

don't think i've ever seen a game with this many "walks"

Idaho Helga's picture

OSU crowd.  I guess the SC/SEC folks are all waiting for the Famous Idaho Potato bowl coming up. Woo-hoo! 

Idaho Helga's picture

"gotta find ways to score" pro-FOUND!

TLB's picture

c'mon helga, give him some credit, at least he didn't say "score the basketball"

TLB's picture

is sully hurt?

Chris Lauderback's picture

Wallenberg saying x-rays show NO fracture in Sully's foot. 

TLB's picture

Thats not what I saw.

Idaho Helga's picture

SC coming after Craft. I like it. He will burn them and it frees up someone else.

OurHonorDefend09's picture

I've never seen so many fouls called on OSU for just contesting a shot... Attention Refs: If a player just puts their hand in a shooters face without touching them, it's not a foul.

 

NO FRACTURE IN THE X-RAY. THERE IS A GOD, HE JUST HATES GREG ODEN.

Don't give up... Don't ever give up.

Idaho Helga's picture

Yeah for LEFT FEET EVERYWHERE!

741's picture

DT stepping up. He's been feeling it these past three games for sure.

argyle182021's picture

10-13 shooting thus far.  Keep it up!

BuddhaBuck's picture

It's amazing how differently the refs are calling the game on each end of the floor.

Don't text while driving.

Idaho Helga's picture

SC screwing themselves mightily now.

 

OurHonorDefend09's picture

By the way, does anyone know where to get basketball jerseys that aren't #0? 

I really want to get a Craft (4) or Thomas (1) jersey, but I can't find them anywhere

Don't give up... Don't ever give up.

thatlillefty's picture

dude, i've been wondering this myself.

ShowThemOhiosHere's picture

I've seen white #23s, but that's about it in the newest jerseys.  I've seen 4s and 44s in the older design.

Class of 2010.

cplunk's picture

Wow is Thad Matta sweaty

Buckeyes44's picture

X-ray negative. Just spoke to trainer.

Skull

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater's picture

Thomas just taking over....but man these refs are calling EVERYTHING to try and keep SC in it....

Idaho Helga's picture

Heard this week: Don't bother praying for anything this week. God is busy w/ the Broncos.

argyle182021's picture

Unbelievably poor call.  Hurts even more b/c Ravenel is our only experienced big.

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater's picture

Amir needs to grow up in a hurry, ready or not....

Idaho Helga's picture

Found out where the SEC fan base is for this game. They're all in caves hiding their top recruits from the Urbz.

cplunk's picture

Nice, Thomas, nice

Idaho Helga's picture

Pretty rebound Thomas!

dbit's picture

Tell you what, these Sullinger injuries has really let Deshaun come on to the scene in a big way

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater's picture

good point, Thomas is taking over that "#2 guy" role, confidence is building, not that he was ever afraid to shot, but he is just on another level right now....

Idaho Helga's picture

Sully is missed but I have to wonder if we'd actually be worse off w/ out Craft at this point.  He is such a force on a lot of levels not just defense.

TLB's picture

morning already?

Idaho Helga's picture

Hey SC...you guys don't have that glooey stuff they used on my kid that seals wounds?

 

Idaho Helga's picture

And the crowd love it!!! W000T!

 

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater's picture

hahahahaha, did they just play a rooster crowing over the PA system?!?!  is that supposed to scare the opposing team??

 

dbit's picture

Sounds rather terrifying 

ShowThemOhiosHere's picture

Stadium O-H-I-O in SC...all I have to say about that is lol

Class of 2010.

Idaho Helga's picture

Mebbe it's a mean rooster. Most are. I know I'M SHAKING.  So if 2 SC players get in a fight, are they arrested for cockfighting?  Probably not illegal in SC.

OurHonorDefend09's picture

William Buford needs to stop shooting like his 1/16 performance in the tournament. He is so streaky. Can we bring back Diebler?

Don't give up... Don't ever give up.

Idaho Helga's picture

BS foul . Oh pleeeze.

OurHonorDefend09's picture

Seriously, this is a joke. The SC player stiff armed Thomas with his left hand.

Don't give up... Don't ever give up.

Idaho Helga's picture

Buford finally in the clutch.

johnblairgobucks's picture

have always enjoyed how Matta and team are polite and good sportsmans in post game/Victory

handshakes...in 3....2.....1

Go Bucks!

Idaho Helga's picture

stupid rooster at the end; that was hilarious!

johnblairgobucks's picture

South Carolina needs....i say they need Fog Horn Leg Horn as their Mascot

Seabass1974's picture

Ok who's got Temple and who's got Wyoming?

The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender. - Woody Hayes

johnblairgobucks's picture

I've got Temple in the Ugly Uniform Bowl

OurHonorDefend09's picture

Samesies. Friends with Improper Benefits is going to win this bowl pick'em, sorry everyone.

Don't give up... Don't ever give up.

Buckeyebrowny919's picture

11W, we need a quicklink somewhere on here to the pick 'em website. just sayin ;)

JakeBuckeye's picture

I am apalled. Yes, Wyoming is known for their piss and shit uniforms, but Temple's uniforms are top five, maybe the best of them all, in college football. They are classics.

Buckeyebrowny919's picture

i...could not STAND how effin ticky tack this refs were...they were calling EVERYTHING on us and no that is not homer talk. It seems every time SC would turn towards the basket they would call a hand check...unbelievable

argyle182021's picture

Deshaun Thomas: 13-16 (81%) shooting with his 3 miscues all three point attempts.

Rest of team: 14-37 (38%) shooting
