PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
screw wisconsin and their douchebag coaches
I Hate Michigan.
Sully looking good early
Sully beasting early. Bad news if they are shooting hot today though.
It's Sully vs Wisconsin at this point and Wisconsin is making all of their 3s.
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
Scott first off bench... very interesting
Hightower in the house!
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.
feel like our athleticism might be a little too much for wisky
Thomas tackled from behind?
have no one to guard evans
God I hate playing these annoying bastards
Wisky loves the flop.
Another question, why are there so many gingers in wisconsin?
What is Ravenel good at?
being the second biggest on the team. that is all he is good at
It's clear how much that helps.
Why is Lenzelle not on Evans
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!
He can if their whole team fouls out. Hack a sully in full effect.
Please cover Evans.
WHAT THE HELL. THat's called a box out, refs.
Craft for illegal falling down.
Sully's goin nuts! Get me 30 big fella...
We could easily be losing. THey've missed a lot of open 3s.
Just attack these guys. Enough J's. Go to the rim or sit the bench while someone else does.
Thomas assisting himself.
So he does pass the ball! ...but only to himself
DeShaun oops himself off the rim, solid.
Wow that was great reflexes by Deshaun to get his own rebound.
deshaun would be one hell of a tight end
I really can't stand watching games officiated by B1G officials.
I truly think Bo Ryan looks like a woman.
I think he looks like the grinch.
An old cranky nun.....
This...without hair...on her head.
She could be his mother.
He reminds me of a Sleestak from Land of the Lost....slimy reptile....
Good half, Sully's in the zone and has no fouls.
They gotta win this one, or else*.
(*No National Championship in hoops, this year.)
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
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.
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.
TOO. MANY. JUMPERS.
MUST. GO. INSIDE.
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.
I'm tired of the flopping and bad acting.
Yeah I think it hurts b-ball.
October 20th: National Kenneth Guiton Day
I definitely thought he got hit in the face. and after seeing all the replays i still do.
"Who cares? Go Bucks." - Aaron Untch
Dakich is drunk right?
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.
Thomas' game is offensive rebounding and finishing.. which is great but he is nowhere near Sully's class
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.
Thomas is very good. He will take us very far in March. But he is not in Sully's class at the college level.
This is some very bad basketball.
"Make the layup, motherf***er. Make the layup!"
WTF is Buford doing?
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.
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!
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!!!!
Buford is playing terrible
" I went for two cause I couldn't go for three."
Dumb and dumber. 31 pushes of like crazy.
Buford is trying to screw this up
3/13 and 2 TOs (pretty sure he has 3 though)
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.
Please get buford out of there
We just got Bufforded.
Buford is laughable at this point
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.
THAD I BEG YOU!! IF BUFORD ISN'T HITTING HIS SHOTS HE IS USELESS!
Buford is terrible.
Wow look what happens when we drive
SOMEBODY ELSE SCORED!!!!!! LENZELLE SMITH, CHAMPION OF THE PEOPLE!
So thad subs thompson in for Lenzelle... naturally...
think it was "scheduled", but I want Lenzelle back in there ASAP...
I think his point was that he would have preferred a "scheduled" substitution for Buford instead...
I know...That's a pisser. Take WB out.
Yea def don't agree with that sub, right after a nice 3 pt play by Smith
I don't really understand why OSU is not up by 20.
Great D by OSU there....
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?
Buford is gunna find a way to blow this game for us
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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
man these refs suck....they will be sure to keep Wiscy in it...Sully set for about an hour on that one...
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
Sully could have drank some coffee he was there so long.
SULLY IS A BEAST
I wonder if Thad's been calling that same play over and over again... "Guys, run 'Brick and Putback' again"
Sully is a beast! Feed him the freakin rock.
go to sully every time down
That wall all hand but that's ok.
Wisky wouldn't even be sniffing this game without these fucking refs, good lord
deja fucking vu
This is pissing me off beyond belief
Really bad calls here in the 2nd half, which is a shame as I thought the first half was fair
I'm just waiting for Carrot Top to come back for one last minute and hit us with a game clinching dagger.
bo ryan has a mangina
Hopefully this timeout calms everybody down.
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
cheap foul, but we'll take it...
Bailed out. A lot of standing around.
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
OSU should be winning by 20, but the poor reffing kinda change the mo in this game.
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
terrible refs at wisky. im not shocked at all.
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.
nice shoot willy
HE MADE ONE!!!!!??!!!
fucking finally Buford!!
can't say that Buford lacks confidence, he keeps putting it up and I'm glad that one went down
how is that not a foul on craft? jesus
finally they got a call right
Heads up play by Smith.
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
agreed, they have more fouls against them and we've shot 9 more foul shots. can't complain about reffing overall.
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.
Any ref who misses that easy of a charging call is bad, no matter how well he did the rest of the game.
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?
we cant live with big willie, but we cant live without him
jesus, they missed a clear double dribble on the Ginger, thankfully they caught the one on Taylor....need points here
Have to get points here please.
They got bailed out their
yea. ref have called a spectacular second half. wow!
NICE move on Craft....now make the damn free throw....
I really hate all things Wisconsin. That is all
need our foul shots and we can ice this one.
Great play... nice greaseboard there by Thad.
do you realize how good this team would be if craft could shoot the three.
really if anyone could shoot the three
free throws and its over boys
Gotta make FTs to finish this game. Thank god it's double bonus
The guy in the background doesn't seem as excited.
jump ball ?! wtf
LOL hightower r u serious
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.
another great call by this excellent officiating crew
Isn't that a jump ball to.
Does OSU just not have any inbounds plays, or do they not run the ones they have? Which is it?
I really hate all things Ed Hightower.
Craft getting nasty on D now....love it
Hightower is feelin it today.
the sullinger one was a jumpball, the buford one was not, they got them both right
Sure it was a jump ball, after the ginger blasted through his off arm to get to the ball.
DEAL WITH IT BO!
Deal with it Wisky.
Yes. Fuck Bo Ryan. Fuck Bret Bitchima. Fuck Wisky. Yes.
suck it wiskyyyyyyyyyy
YESSS.....FUCK YOU WISCONSIN.....
Deal with it!
That one was for Brett the Badger.
ugly win but a win nonetheless
that was pretty ugly, but I'll take it
deal with it
that is all
Should have been a 20 point win, but a win is a win.
BIG WIN! hard team to beat at home
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.
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.
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.
It's a good time to be a Buckeye fan!
DEAL WITH IT! How does Ho Ryan like that?
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.
Class of 2010.
Hightower really turned up his intensity in the final 1:30.
Jordan Taylor had me nervous at the end
Did you see Aaron crafts pass to Thomas at the end?!!
I could barely get through that game. Glad we came out with the W.
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.
As there is any doubting that he is.
"You might outsmart me, but you'll never outwork me"
Wayne Woodrow Hayes
Not much doubt, except that Satan might be ashamed of Hightower's lack of guile. Satan's minions aren't usually cross-eyed.
Great win Bucks!!! How can they allow Hightower to continue to officiate ? He does know people aren't there to watch him right ?
Go UNC!. Empty the arena.
Stupid UNC. Now they want to suck. :/
"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.
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?
