Sully looking good early

Sully beasting early. Bad news if they are shooting hot today though.

Colin's picture

It's Sully vs Wisconsin at this point and Wisconsin is making all of their 3s.

PharmBuck's picture

Good lord that was an awful call

"You're pissed because we went after a committed guy? Guess what, we got 9 guys who better go do it again," said Meyer. "Do it a little harder next time."

Why is that not an intentional foul?

Wait wait wait, Ginger Afro CUT HIS HAIR!?! WHYYYYYYY

Soooo, dont even sneeze in Taylor's direction or it's a whistle?

Can Willy find his shot? He hasn't been much of a factor so far

What up with that flattop?

I kinda like the flat top, very kid n play like.

Wisky loves the flop.

PharmBuck's picture

Another question, why are there so many gingers in wisconsin?

"You're pissed because we went after a committed guy? Guess what, we got 9 guys who better go do it again," said Meyer. "Do it a little harder next time."

Colin's picture

What is Ravenel good at?

buckeyechad's picture

being the second biggest on the team. that is all he is good at

Colin's picture

It's clear how much that helps. 

PharmBuck's picture

Why is Lenzelle not on Evans

"You're pissed because we went after a committed guy? Guess what, we got 9 guys who better go do it again," said Meyer. "Do it a little harder next time."

Texas Buckeye's picture

There needs to be someone other than Sully to step up and score. He can't carry the load by himself.

It's true... We really are a bunch of nuts!
Go Bucks!

slippy's picture

He can if their whole team fouls out.  Hack a sully in full effect.

madhatterhater's picture

Please cover Evans.

WHAT THE HELL.  THat's called a box out, refs.

madhatterhater's picture

Craft for illegal falling down.

Sully's goin nuts!  Get me 30 big fella...

slippy's picture

We could easily be losing.  THey've missed a lot of open 3s.

jerkyrizzo21's picture

Just attack these guys.  Enough J's.  Go to the rim or sit the bench while someone else does.

madhatterhater's picture

Thomas assisting himself.

dbit's picture

So he does pass the ball!  ...but only to himself

PharmBuck's picture

DeShaun oops himself off the rim, solid.

"You're pissed because we went after a committed guy? Guess what, we got 9 guys who better go do it again," said Meyer. "Do it a little harder next time."

Colin's picture

Wow that was great reflexes by Deshaun to get his own rebound.

buckeyemitchell's picture

deshaun would be one hell of a tight end

I really can't stand watching games officiated by B1G officials.

Good half, Sully's in the zone and has no fouls.

Hoody Wayes's picture

They gotta win this one, or else*.

(*No National Championship in hoops, this year.)

dubjayfootball90's picture

WB needs to wake up. I love this kids game. I know he has it in him man, hes gotta stop shooting and start dishing until he gets an open lane to drive for an easy bucket to build up his confidence. But then again, I do not know much about basketball since I got cut from my 7th grade team and decided to wrestle instead, haha

OurHonorDefend09's picture

You're pretty close. He's been driving more today, but he honestly needs to realize he's not MJ and can't clear space then chuck up 18fters and expect to be continuously successful. There aren't many defenders who he can't beat off the dribble which means easy points if he really wants to be efficient. Time will tell if he realizes this.

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

Buckeye Chuck's picture

Not to be too much of a downer, but when you factor in that this was probably Sullinger's best half of the season, that Wisconsin isn't making anything from outside, and that this team has lost its last two dogfights on the road...things are looking a little shaky.

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

PharmBuck's picture

TOO. MANY. JUMPERS.

MUST. GO. INSIDE.

"You're pissed because we went after a committed guy? Guess what, we got 9 guys who better go do it again," said Meyer. "Do it a little harder next time."

jerkyrizzo21's picture

Buford is the least clutch player I think I've ever seen... gotta pray he's red hot and if he's not, he's useless.  

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

I'm tired of the flopping and bad acting.

madhatterhater's picture

Yeah I think it hurts b-ball.

awwwwwwop's picture

I definitely thought he got hit in the face. and after seeing all the replays i still do.

rdubs's picture

Thomas is by far our best player.  If Sullinger gets better at the 15 foot range jumpers he could approach it, but Thomas is just so athletic in a way that Sullinger isn't.

Powers's picture

Thomas' game is offensive rebounding and finishing.. which is great but he is nowhere near Sully's class

rdubs's picture

I'd be willing to bet he has a much better pro career than Sullinger.  Sullinger knows the game better than anyone to come through here in a long time, but he's not that tough and not that athletic.  He uses his body extremely well and has solid post moves, but he isn't quick enough to go up against the big men he will meet in the league.

JakeBuckeye's picture

Thomas is very good. He will take us very far in March. But he is not in Sully's class at the college level.

madhatterhater's picture

This is some very bad basketball.

go bucks

741's picture

"Make the layup, motherf***er. Make the layup!" 

 

LOL

slippy's picture

WTF is Buford doing?

PharmBuck's picture

Our best play this year has been DeShaun rebounding a Buford brick and laying it in.

DeShaun loves this play because he has so many chances to do it per game.

"You're pissed because we went after a committed guy? Guess what, we got 9 guys who better go do it again," said Meyer. "Do it a little harder next time."

Texas Buckeye's picture

I'm still amazed that we're up by 6 to be honest. Deshaun is a great rebounder and Sullinger is a beast, but NO ONE has stepped up at all. Somebody needs to step up! Anybody!

It's true... We really are a bunch of nuts!
Go Bucks!

jerkyrizzo21's picture

Is it one of those Tressel deals where Thad cant bring himself to bench the Senior?  Buford is killing us.  Time for a 4-5 min breather?  Time to coach, coach...

GET BUFORD OUT OF THE GAME!!!!

BuiltfortheNuthouse's picture

Buford is playing terrible

Dumb and dumber. 31 pushes of like crazy.

DallasTheologian's picture

Buford is trying to screw this up

slippy's picture

3/13 and 2 TOs (pretty sure he has 3 though)

OurHonorDefend09's picture

Anyone else think Craft needs to attempt to score, rather than just looking to dish as soon as he gets it? Also, I'm up for subbing Thompson for Buford and letting him just try to dunk over everyone every time he gets the ball rather than Buford just throwing up bricks and giving the ball away.

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

DallasTheologian's picture

Please get buford out of there

madhatterhater's picture

We just got Bufforded.

go bucks

Powers's picture

Buford is laughable at this point

BearcatBuckeye's picture

I love Buford's game, but he can be so streaky. He has the ability to be the great distributor, yet he turns the ball over making ill-advised passes and miss dribbles. When he's not making shots, he looks very careless.

HolyBuckeye1093's picture

THAD I BEG YOU!! IF BUFORD ISN'T HITTING HIS SHOTS HE IS USELESS!

aforsbach's picture

Buford is terrible.

PharmBuck's picture

Wow look what happens when we drive

"You're pissed because we went after a committed guy? Guess what, we got 9 guys who better go do it again," said Meyer. "Do it a little harder next time."

SOMEBODY ELSE SCORED!!!!!! LENZELLE SMITH, CHAMPION OF THE PEOPLE!

It's true... We really are a bunch of nuts!
Go Bucks!

jerkyrizzo21's picture

So thad subs thompson in for Lenzelle... naturally... 

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater's picture

think it was "scheduled", but I want Lenzelle back in there ASAP...

rdubs's picture

I think his point was that he would have preferred a "scheduled" substitution for Buford instead...

BuckeyeJim's picture

I know...That's a pisser. Take WB out.

BearcatBuckeye's picture

Yea def don't agree with that sub, right after a nice 3 pt play by Smith

madhatterhater's picture

I don't really understand why OSU is not up by 20.

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater's picture

Great D by OSU there....

HolyBuckeye1093's picture

AND MATTA TAKES OUT SMITH FOR THOMPSON INSTEAD OF BUFORD!?? HIS HE WATCHING THE SAME GAME WE ARE!! BUFORD PLEASE PROVE ME WRONG!

Hey you guys, has anyone noticed Buford is not playing well this afternoon?

Powers's picture

Buford is gunna find a way to blow this game for us

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater's picture

Buford out of control there, and missed a dish off chance

F'in nice Sully!

That call was b s.

premature whistle there, there shouldn't have been any call at all on that one.

WORST CALL EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater's picture

man these refs suck....they will be sure to keep Wiscy in it...Sully set for about an hour on that one...

PharmBuck's picture

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

"You're pissed because we went after a committed guy? Guess what, we got 9 guys who better go do it again," said Meyer. "Do it a little harder next time."

madhatterhater's picture

Sully could have drank some coffee he was there so long.

go bucks

jerkyrizzo21's picture

I wonder if Thad's been calling that same play over and over again... "Guys, run 'Brick and Putback' again"

NCBuck1's picture

Sully is a beast!  Feed him the freakin rock.

tampa buckeye's picture

go to sully every time down

madhatterhater's picture

That wall all hand but that's ok.

Wisky wouldn't even be sniffing this game without these fucking refs, good lord

"You're pissed because we went after a committed guy? Guess what, we got 9 guys who better go do it again," said Meyer. "Do it a little harder next time."

Powers's picture

This is pissing me off beyond belief

BearcatBuckeye's picture

Really bad calls here in the 2nd half, which is a shame as I thought the first half was fair

JakeBuckeye's picture

I'm just waiting for Carrot Top to come back for one last minute and hit us with a game clinching dagger.

buckeyemitchell's picture

bo ryan has a mangina

 

madhatterhater's picture

Hopefully this timeout calms everybody down.

go bucks

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater's picture

want to bitch about the refs....but we need to "Deal with it" and make some shots....for all Wiscy's 3point shooting woes today, we are no better....Buford killing us, Thomas hasn't hit a 3 all game from what I have seen....this better be a nice play out of the time out

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater's picture

cheap foul, but we'll take it...

madhatterhater's picture

Bailed out. A lot of standing around.

go bucks

rdubs's picture

Refs certainly haven't been going against us, they only have 2 foul shots and have more total fouls.  We just don't have enough good pure shooters like Diebler

madhatterhater's picture

OSU should be winning by 20, but the poor reffing kinda change the mo in this game.

go bucks

HolyBuckeye1093's picture

WISC might have one more empty possession in this game. OSU needs to score every time down. This is when WISC doesn't miss clutch shots

tampa buckeye's picture

terrible refs at wisky.  im not shocked at all.

NCBuck1's picture

Our bigs are getting fronted dow low and then standing around.  They need to work for postion and get the cheap fouls.  Or we can clear the lane and go over top.

Powers's picture

FINALLYYY!!!!!!!!

PortlyOSUMan's picture

HE MADE ONE!!!!!??!!!

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater's picture

fucking finally Buford!!

rdubs's picture

can't say that Buford lacks confidence, he keeps putting it up and I'm glad that one went down

tampa buckeye's picture

how is that not a foul on craft?  jesus

tampa buckeye's picture

finally they got a call right 

madhatterhater's picture

Heads up play by Smith.

go bucks

buckeyechad's picture

refs havent been that bad. one thing i hate about bball is that the bitching about refs is an excuse for almost every team that loses

rdubs's picture

agreed, they have more fouls against them and we've shot 9 more foul shots.  can't complain about reffing overall.

awwwwwwop's picture

When you shot 45 threes a game, you dont get foul calls.  A discrepency does not mean the refs dont suck.  When you play a drive and post game as OSU does, you should get more calls because a lot more contact is created.

"Who cares? Go Bucks." - Aaron Untch

PharmBuck's picture

Any ref who misses that easy of a charging call is bad, no matter how well he did the rest of the game.

"You're pissed because we went after a committed guy? Guess what, we got 9 guys who better go do it again," said Meyer. "Do it a little harder next time."

Run_Fido_Run's picture

Not that bad? That's not exactly a demanding standard. The officiating was poor, but sure I've seen much worse. 

As far as the teams go, the B1G is the best conference in the land this year. Yet we're content to conclude that the officiating wasn't that bad?    

buckeyemitchell's picture

we cant live with big willie, but we cant live without him

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater's picture

jesus, they missed a clear double dribble on the Ginger, thankfully they caught the one on Taylor....need points here

attack the press don't just sit there. that was a boneheaded move by sullinger.  he had open passes and could have killed a lot more time and kept the posession arrow.

Isn't that a jump ball to.

Run_Fido_Run's picture

Huge win. When the clock hit 0:00, why didn't we dance on their W?

Play of the game was Sully's steal when they were up by one with Wisky having the momentum.

I don't normally root for UNC, but if Diggs in attendance, I'll root for UNC to destroy Maryland and thus silent the crowd, make it a lousy atmosphere, people leaving early, etc.

BearcatBuckeye's picture

My thought exactly, Maryland knows Diggs was at OSU/Mich game, why wouldn't they want him at the MD/UNC game? I don't think it ultimately matters, though, as the Urban factor wins out here. I think he'll commit in the next few days to OSU.

KJR10's picture

See Diggs you can come watch basketball games after our 4-8 session in football! What a great time!

They also got that road monkey off their back hopefully. Thad's first victory there also.

Why is Ed Hightower allowed to officiate?  That whole crew was pathetic as refs usually are in that building, but Wisconsin wasn't able to pull off their usual lucky shit.

I could barely get through that game. Glad we came out with the W.

Run_Fido_Run's picture

Yeah, my wife is a little miffed at me because of what I was saying to the t.v. She now thinks that Ed Hightower is the spawn of Satan, or something.

WC Buckeye's picture

As  there is any doubting that he is.

 

"You might outsmart me, but you'll never outwork me"

Run_Fido_Run's picture

Not much doubt, except that Satan might be ashamed of Hightower's lack of guile. Satan's minions aren't usually cross-eyed.   

macbraddy's picture

Great win Bucks!!! How can they allow Hightower to continue to officiate ? He does know people aren't there to watch him right ?

Go Bucks!!!

Run_Fido_Run's picture

Go UNC!. Empty the arena.

Buckeyevstheworld's picture

Stupid UNC. Now they want to suck. :/

"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.

Breakawayspeed's picture

Somebody needs to send a tape of the last few minutes of this game to the B10's director of officiating!  Hightower needs a warning that it is not his job to make the games close.

Is it just me or is Bo Ryan to easy to hate?
