Is it Saturday Yet's picture

Soooo, pulling for Ohio now. Or maybe it's more about TSUN losing.

It makes me ill to say it, but "Go Ohio!"

osubuckeye4life's picture

So, who's bracket is not in a smoldering pile outside right now after the mammoth upset of Mizzu?

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

I had them losing to Sparty in one and Florida in another.

Joe Beale's picture

I had Mizzou losing to Florida, so no big deal for me.

OHIO IS BEATING MICHIGAN, woohoo!  This is gonne be soooo swee ... oh, there is 19:28 left in the first?  Damnit.

How many batteries does it take to beat Michigan football?   1AA
Want to beat Michigan? There's an App for that.

osubuckeye4life's picture

Ohio still beating TTUN go bobcats (eventhough your mascot attacked Brutus)!

osubuckeye4life's picture

Haha Kellog from downtown that's some good genes! 

LadyBuck's picture

Oh geez! Go Bobcats!!

Arizona_Buckeye's picture

Perhaps that fat f@#$ Flounder Hoke will know who Ohio is if the Bobcats continue to slap around AACC

My thoughts exactly.

Real fans stay for Carmen.

LadyBuck's picture

Probably not. I don't think he's that smart.

buckeyefan927's picture

My school is making me so proud beating TTUN

LadyBuck's picture

The state of Ohio is having fun beating that school up north. 

Arizona_Buckeye's picture

My undergraduate degree is from Ohio U - It is a GREAT DAY to be an Ohioan!!!!

This is pretty entertaining to watch ... although M Man may have called it (or jinxed his team if you believe in voodoo).

osubuckeye4life's picture

Nice Kellog from downtown again! 

LadyBuck's picture

It's only an 8 point lead at and the first half. Anything can happen. There is still a lot of basketball to be played.

LadyBuck's picture

That was an awesome shot by Baltic. Now, defensive stops, Ohio.

JakeBuckeye's picture

That interview just made Tim Hardaway Sr. sound like the cockiest son of a bitch. Usually the arrogance goes away with age... I guess not.

LadyBuck's picture

Was that not a travel on Burke? He took about 4 steps on that drive.

LadyBuck's picture

That was a hilarious play by TTUN. OU needs to convert on those opprotunities, though.

Mizzou in my final four Memphis in my elite eight. One loss coming into today

I'm a big ten homer so go Purdue.  But there is no way i can cheer for ttun against ohio

LadyBuck's picture

They are actually calling shooting fouls in the post. This is unbelievable. 

Edit: However, Burke still gets to push his man to the other side of the court.

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

Love seeing Novak all pissed off. Hate Novak.

LadyBuck's picture

He looks like he's about to throw a temper tantrum every time.

Run_Fido_Run's picture

Can't help it, I'm rooting for Michigan. It's partly B1G pride, but it's mostly because Michigan is behind in the game. If they were ahead, I'd probably be rooting for Ohio.

LadyBuck's picture

Never. I'm usually all for Big Ten Pride, but this would be classic if Ohio beats them. Maybe it would explain why they get us mixed up so often.

osubuckeye4life's picture

Lehigh is not going away. 

dbit's picture

That Cooper kid looks like a straight up leader. Putting the team on his back AND verbally communicating to his teammates

osubuckeye4life's picture

He was a big part of their upset of GT a few years ago up in Cleveland. 23 points and 8 assists. 

Run_Fido_Run's picture

Burke will have to win the game for Michigan.

LadyBuck's picture

 Love that they play a similiar defensive style to us. Can really tell that coach Groce was under Matta's tuteledge.

Buckeye06's picture

Can people understand how hard it is to win in the tourney now? Every game is critical and you just have to win and move on. 

Mizzou, Duke, Michigan all in trouble/going down.  Teams play different styles and you don't have weeks/months to scout like you do for your conference

Run_Fido_Run's picture

Michigan has been one of the luckiest teams this year. It's now St. Paddy's Day in Ireland and when Michigan looks to Ohio State and MSU, they are green with envy. Luck might be one their side again.

LadyBuck's picture

Wow is all I have to say. OU is getting the OSU complex of jacking up shots without passing around.

Isn't luck a part of the equation, though, Run_Fido_Run?

Run_Fido_Run's picture

If Michigan does lose, will it stop those idiots from calling us "Ohio"? I mean, wouldn't doing that be a painful reminder? Not that I care about their toothless "insult," but this quandary would make their brains implode.  

Joe Beale's picture

Make it a good play, Beilein.

Run_Fido_Run's picture

Syracuse refs doing this game, too?

Bobcat04's picture

Boy, Trey Burke does push people all over. That turnover by Kellogg should have been a foul on Burke.

Squirrel Master's picture

Oh yeah, UM is going down! I love that I picked Ohio!

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

Run_Fido_Run's picture

Michigan too fixated on getting a 3.

Bobcat04's picture

Christ, how many chances are they going to give scUM?

LadyBuck's picture

Come on, make it a 2 possession game, OU.

Joe Beale's picture

Haha...appropriate that Offutt gets to put the nail in the coffin.

Squirrel Master's picture

WOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOO! ITS OVER BABY! OHIO IS A DIAPER DANDY ON THE RISE BABY!

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

741's picture

Also, Brady Hoke is fat.

Menexenus's picture

So true...

P.S.  Suck it, TSUN!

Real fans stay for Carmen.

LadyBuck's picture

Is Smortz actually crying on the bench?

JakeBuckeye's picture

Duke and Michigan going down! Rejoice! Rejoice! This is the day of the Lord!

William's picture

I don't get the hate for Duke on this site.

nickma71's picture

It isn't so much Duke per se....it is the NCAA making it as easy as possible for them in what seems like a yearly basis. This is the first time in long time their bracket was not a complete joke.

JakeBuckeye's picture

Mason Plumlee is a jackass. I love seeing Dickie V.'s teams lose.

Run_Fido_Run's picture

Offut just offed Michigan.

AngelHeartsBuckeyes's picture

I know I am late to the party, but I really want to enjoy these last 6.8 seconds of impending doom for AACC.

Buckeye born and bred. Buckeye til I'm dead.

JasonBuck's picture

Lol I wonder if Mr. I can't call Ohio State Ohio State will finally get the difference between the two Lol think your tourney committee for this!!!!

Run_Fido_Run's picture

Oh, but the tourney commitee claims they never do that - that it's impossible to cincorporate those angles into the very complex bracketing process. I tend to believe them, except the Ohio v. Michigan matchup was almost too funny to be a coincidence.

When they say Ohio...you say "oh you mean that team you lost to in the round of 64?"

Bobcat04's picture

DJ Cooper was the best pg on the floor today. My alma mater cleans up scUM!

Squirrel Master's picture

My bracket is back. Here we go!

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

Run_Fido_Run's picture

Gotta feel a little better about Ohio State's defense of the 2 seed now, fugly as it was.

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

If Duke goes down, best opening round ever!

JakeBuckeye's picture

Today totally made up for yesterday as far as upset excitment goes!!!!

Squirrel Master's picture

well so much for all the chalk yesterday. Who's next? first Duke, then maybe Kansas???

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

PharmBuck's picture

Dook is done for. Knew I should have had them losing earlier than elite eight.

"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."

AngelHeartsBuckeyes's picture

I was embracing my inner troll and tried to hop on mgoblog -- won't load. Getting an error message. The city of AA is completely melting down right now.

HAHA! I wonder when they shut down the site?

bucknut24's picture

Hell yeah Bobcats!!!!!

Run_Fido_Run's picture

Ms. K not bad for her age, at all.

Seabass1974's picture

How many of us called the Ohio win today? I know I did but it was more based on wishful thinking than actual probability. Is this possible proof that if enough people wish for something it is more likely to come true?

 

HAHA GO OHIO and State, Green and Red = dead for UM!

Ohio1St81's picture

Ha ha same thing Angel, I couldn't stop myself from rubbing it in but I can't connect. 

PharmBuck's picture

Things you may hear at MGoBlog right now:

"FIRE BELEIN"

"Wait did we lose to Ohio or Ohio?"

"Yes, I'd like to order an extra large pizza"

Oops sorry that last one was from Hoke's office

"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."

dbit's picture

The MGoBlog site is usually "down" after a michigan loss.

 

Edit: Its back up

Joe Beale's picture

But you can't get into the open thread for the Ohio game. 

dbit's picture

You're right. Jumped the gun

Squirrel Master's picture

I had Ohio beating them and I really thought it could happen. UM was a paper champ and really was over ranked! Such sweet victory. Duke going doing is the cherry on top! What a tourney!

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

Ref'd.....

NC_Buckeye's picture

Is anyone else unable to get to mgoblog? I'm getting 503 Service Unavailable. Damnit.

LadyBuck's picture

Maybe Ohio finally confiscated the site domain.

LadyBuck's picture

Has MSU played yet today?

AngelHeartsBuckeyes's picture

Mixed emotions about Duke...

Takes a little flourish off of what some consider our 'signature' win

Buckeye born and bred. Buckeye til I'm dead.

Run_Fido_Run's picture

That "signature" doesn't matter any more. We got our 2 seed, now it's all about what they do on the court.

JakeBuckeye's picture

Its the NCAA tournament, Angel. "Signature wins" only matter up until selection Sunday when you get your seed. What you did in the regular season doesn't matter. We have one signature win right now and that came against Loyola.

BoFuquel's picture

Well II'll be DOOKIED!

I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

LadyBuck's picture

Come on Purdue, pull it out!

AngelHeartsBuckeyes's picture

So let me get this straight:

We struggle yesterday somewhat and we win -- by 19 -- and we got problems.

Duke is very very close to losing, and they are still praising them and coach K.

 

Buckeye born and bred. Buckeye til I'm dead.

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

Purdue was rolling and the next thing I know they are down by a point.....

LadyBuck's picture

That is great. Duke, Mizzou, and TTUN go down.

AngelHeartsBuckeyes's picture

c'mon Purde!!!

Buckeye born and bred. Buckeye til I'm dead.

LadyBuck's picture

Big ten, minus TTUN wins.

osubuckeye4life's picture

I bet Coach K's butt is now extremely sore. 

 

Woo that was a close one Purdue!

 

 

 

bucknut24's picture

LMAO Michigan sucks forever!  First Appalachian State, now OHIO BOBCATS!!!!!

Run_Fido_Run's picture

No, but maybe comparable in terms of shutting their mouths.

JakeBuckeye's picture

Nothing will ever shut their mouths. And nothing will ever shut ours. That's what makes our two fanbases go round, my friend.

Run_Fido_Run's picture

I meant temporarily. Obviously, Hoke can't keep his pie hole shut for very long, lest the pie makers go out of business.

Seabass1974's picture

Don't forget Toledo.

kr66osu's picture

I'm guessing we aren't going to hear much of Belien calling us "Ohio" after tonight

Run_Fido_Run's picture

I'm wondering if Hoke will do it anymore.  

JakeBuckeye's picture

They both will still do it, I imagine. Especially Hoke.

rdubs's picture

The thing is it used to erk me a bit.  But now I will just laugh at the memory of Ohio beating them.

Run_Fido_Run's picture

Exactly, and half the press guys will be laughing, too.  

Run_Fido_Run's picture

You're probably right, but won't that be a painful reminder? "Ohio, Ohio, Ohio." Hell, we couldn't troll them any harder than Hoke will be trolling his own peeps.

JasonBuck's picture

I think this is soooooo funny....anyone notice NO scUM fans on this entire thread LOL

osubuckeye4life's picture

1st time in NCAA men's basketball championship history that 3 teams seeded No. 13 or worse each won on the same day.

Arizona_Buckeye's picture

WAY TO GO BOBCATS!!! My god, you can't even write a better script!!!

Hey FLOUNDER HOKE - Do you know who Ohio is now bitch?!?!?!?!  You can't beat either!!!!

The best thing about Pastafarianism? It is not only acceptable, but advisable, to be heavily sauced

JakeBuckeye's picture

Hey FLOUNDER HOKE - Do you know who Ohio is now bitch?!?!?!?!  You can't beat either!!!!

This would be an acceptable comment if Brady Hoke wasn't (technically) undefeated against Ohio State and yet to play Ohio U as Michigan head coach. Just saying...

DetroitBuckeye's picture

Thanks a lot purdue, my bracket's destroyed now. At least i still have 3 out of 4 alive.

 
RedStorm45's picture

I'll post a link tomorrow...I have a couple minute vids from inside Nationwide with everyone jam packed around the tv watching the OU/Michigan game.  Way more exciting than the games there today.  Although, LIU-Brooklyn was only down 5 at half to MSU and had it down to 6 or 7 a couple times before MSU decided their bigs were actually bigger and stronger and went to them a bunch.  Green with a triple-double I'm told.

RedStorm45's picture

Also...the first 4 of this night cap all featured upsets.  Yes, technically 9 and 10 seeds are upsets to go along with OU and Lehigh.
