PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Ted Valentine is a joke.
WB ever gonna show up in a big game?
You know of it wasn't for the exaggertaed motion that refs get do when making a charge call it wouldn't be called nearly as much as it is in today's game
UM gotten away with at least 2 walks so far.
Smith is hitting the boards hard today. Good work LZ
Smith=X factor come tournament time. Especially since WB has given up.
Bucks are getting molested down low. You can't get a call at home? WTF
He pushes with that off arm every time. Finally got the call
Now that's a MAN'S field goal!
I hope ravenell punches novak's teeth in.
we need ravenell, someone else has to do it
They should put in McDonald to punch Novak then smack Valentine.
That would be the best stats for him this far in his carreer
They finally called a walk!
They talking about UM being so good on the road? They are 0-4 in true road games.
I hate zack novak so so so much. Ever since he elbowed PJ hill.
"Who cares? Go Bucks." - Aaron Untch
Plus he has been there for 8 years now, a year longer than draymond green at msu
our crowd sitting on their thumbs?
Seriously! They need to get up and be "Nuts!"
Run_Fido's favorite word is strawman.
Buford can't dribble. #teamthompson
WB is so bad he has become a fringe player.
Never an easy layup with AC on the floor.
Bucks need to tighten up the D. Keep Feeding Sully
Craft is an animal!
There you go Thomas. Gotta have that 3rd man rotate in on that slip screen.
Burke fully extends that off hand everytime he dribbles. Should be a foul
Exact same train of thought
Burke uses his forearm to clear space a lot. Gotta call that.
Hardaway does it too.
Our post defense sucks. No help from Sully, Thomas, or Ravenel.
Thomas wasn't touched -_-
Deshaun Thomas flopping like a little field fairy.
I think the most frustrating thing with Buford is that he never really progressed like I thought he would. He's basically played at the same level the whole time he's been here, which was fine when he was an undergrad, but not good enough as an upperclassman.
Yeah, he is the reason this is probably only a 2nd weekend team in the tourney
didn't look like it hit him but Thomas' lip is split.
"If I saw you, I'd go down."
Left elbow? Screw bill raftery
Wtf D? Wake he hell up!
Smith killing the offensive boards.
Lenzelle beastin it!
Gotta give credit to Beilin for a good game plan thus far on both ends. Ohio State needs to find ways to get it inside. WB still looking for his first points.
We'll adjust at half, but WB is no longer a factor for us. He's just a guy on the floor. I don't think teams really make much effort to stop him anymore because he stops himself
There u go D!
I get that he didn't hit him, but how was that a foul on Thomas?
Ohio State makes free throws look like carnival shooting...
lenzelle is hustling his ass off today
Buford is a fickle player to figure out. Streaky as they come but can go missing for most of ball games?
Why is Buford starting? He brings no leadership qualities, he can't take over a game, he turns the ball over, and his defense is mediocre. He's super streaky, he should be a sub, not a starter.
Buford looks the same as his sophomore year. He is 0fer from field with 3 turnovers.
Also can someone ask our staff how they decided burke wasnt as good as shannon scott?
Buford missing the OPEN 3.
Burke wasn't really coveted by many. His only offer early was Penn St.
We certainly like to run without Sully in there.
As much as I hate to say it, we need a guy like Hansbrough, a Center/PF that can run the floor well. Sully doesn't run the fast-break well at all.
i am liking the intensity now, seemed to have just shot up... OH
Scott is going to be really, really good.
I hope. He looks pretty comfy out there. Just has to get a good reliable jumper.
Buford actually hit a 3?
up 3 at half but it wasn't a good half.
Good gameplan from Michigan. If they had some real wingmen instead of slow white guys who are mediocre outside shooters they could easily be a top 10 team.
both teams are ice cold. the D has been tough, but everyone is settling for bad shots. we need to pound it inside next half and when sully gets doubled he needs to find the open guy. i don't mind 3 point shots, but they really should come off of at least 4 passes.
Seriously...who the Fuuuuuu is this annoying announcer that ends everything with a yell? Dont think I've had the pleasure of my ears bleeding from him before
"Winter is coming" - Urban Meyer
Sullinger hasn't taken a shot since the 12:50 mark and Thomas has settled for three pointers, need to change that in the second.
Burke has two points. Craft/Scott make me happy.
Looks like a lot of empty seats.
That was tough to watch. Sully is awful on defense. Bad call on the Buford charge. We need to get more shots up we can out rebound this team all day. If michigan wants to slow it down we need to press. 24 points in a half is bush league.
Ravenel, Thompson, Scott and 'Spoon all see time in the first half. Is Thad changing his style?
I think he's trying to keep guys fresh plus sully picks up two terrible fouls. Sully over rated as they come if you look at his total game.
Not an assessment shared by many
Haha he wouldnt be over rated if it was how most viewed him would it? look he is tough in the paint because he can move people out of the way but he will be a joke in the nba. His foot speed is too slow or he is just lazy. either way not as good as advertised.
Agreed. Sullinger's defense is really suspect.
This game is staying too close too long. It's looking a little like last year's game at the Schott, and we were able to pull away there, but this year's Michigan team is somewhat better too.
The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.
They just don't call fouls on guys when Sully gets it down low.
Another Buford turnover.
I feel like fat Sully was more dominant.
Fat Sully had Diebler and Lighty who could shoot from the perimeter so teams couldn't triple team him as much.
and the defense looks generally uninspired right now.
WB showing a little heart.............between turnovers.
Buford has 6 points and 5 turnovers. Way to show up, Willie.
^pathetic numbers for a senior. Oh wait pathetic numbers for any player.
Finally some crowd noise
Do they turn down the crowd noise at ohio state or are the fans that quite?
The students are loud, but the rest of the crowd close to the court is a bunch of old fogies.
Sam Thompson would of really got the crowd going if he was on that breakaway slam
great play by WB. I am still high on him man. I got the feeling he is gonna have a deciding play again come tourney time. This time it will be different. Thats what I believe. I understand the stats are off a bit, but I am still high on this guy. Still has my full confidence.
He had a deciding play in last year's tourney too.
that is why i said 'again' and 'this time will be different'.
Terrible reading on my part, quick glance and comment. Sorry about that.
haha, its all good, not sure what kind of tone you were coming with, so i tried to keep mine dry and to the point. heh
They just referred to fat sully being less dominant on tv! His "sveltness" appears to inhibit his post play.
Got to love craft he always plays hard.
How has no one told Craft to keep his elbow in? Jump shots and free throws.
How was that on Sully?
Official wasnt looking. He was watching the ball and saw the guy fall and Sully standing.
In the meantime, UM guy drives again using his arm to push off and no call.
Sullinger gets abused all game. I'd be frustrated too
Fundamentals are a crutch for the talentless.
I think Sully has to bleed before they will call a foul.
I<3 smith jr
Come on, now, Buckeyes. Put them away!
I think we found our other contributor...
I think they have replayed every shot Burke has made.
Rav playing some good mins
Can't beat 'em, so let's trip 'em.
Buford = rally killer
So, regardless of the 6 TOs, shouldn't Buford sit for a rest? Everyone else on the team has sat for a bit and only one with foul trouble.
Buford has 6 of our 8 turnovers.
Nothing makes me happier than zack novaks performence today. We think Buford chokes. Novak is the biggest pussy on floor
We haven't gotten a call since the elbow flop
Sully what are you doing?
Going HAM like Kobe.../sarcasm
Poor shot selection
All year the team's shot selection has been pretty poor.
Craft is just insane.
Morgan has missed 5 or 6 shots at the rim.
anyone else think that capital one baby in that commercial with jimmy fallon is ugly?
I think it is breathtaking.
Better question is how jimmy Fallon still has a job...
Michigan is done.
Close these bitches out! Sully showin up at the end of the game!
They will be very tough to beat at their place but Sully should have a better game then
Based on what? The refs going to actually call fouls when he gets the crap beaten out of him?
Valentine trying to keep it close to the end.
that was a stupid foul by Smith, but it was a foul
Pass the ball WB!
Buford should have passed!
See ya Mich !!
was this game ever really in doubt?
and a lil cherry on top by WB
They can't all be perfect 10's
They were fortunate that we couldn't hit many 3's, otherwise it would've been much worse for them.
Class of 2010.
It's always nice to beat those guys!
Michigan is our bitch again! Those refs were a fucking joke for the most part. Sully cannot get a call anywhere. Yet we still kicked their asses - cause Michigan still sucks!
YOU SAID MICHIGAN STILL SUCKS SORRY BUT I MUST CORRECT YOU MICHIGAN HAS ALWAYS SUCKED AND ALWAYS WILL SORRY
It's possible for Michigan to still AND always have sucked.
Question: Does Michigan still suck?
Answer: Yes, Michigan always sucked in the past and they still suck today.
I agree with all points...I only mentioned the present component of Michigan's sucking lol
Should have beat these clowns by more imo.
Anyone else nervous for the Wisky game?
738 days and counting....(since scUM last beat tOSU)
btw --- I was worried Kevin Harlan was going to cry a river of tears becuse scUM didn't get as many free throw attempts as he wanted. waaah waaaah waaaaah
clutch fade-away shot by Buford at the end to secure the cover

LZ Smith has been fantastic when the games have been on CBS.
