Why is college soccer on BTN instead of Ohio State basketball? Lame.

Ravenel, Thomas, Craft, Smith, Thompson (Happy Birthday).  Starting 5.

Ummm, why is this not on TV? BTN is showing a replay of the spellbinding Wisconsin/Indiana game and espn is showing ATP tennis.

And we'll drink to old Ohio, 'Til we wobble in our shoes!

Where can I see this game? I can't watch it on BTN because of my provider. First Row Sports isn't working.

I love how the carrier classic getting canceled robs us of OSU basketball being on TV for another week. Ugh.

Well this really sucks. Definitely didn't want to miss the FIRST game. :(

This is ridiclous! Really hope BTN at least makes the replay available online.

How about someone with a connection doing a play-by-play?

Braxton2Devin's picture

Is Albany supposed to be an OK team? Because we can't score at all

Kyle Rowland ‏@KyleRowland
UAlbany has a solid team this season. Return three starters from a 19-win season a year ago. Will be a player in the America East

I honestly think we would've lost to Marquette.... From the gamecast that I'm watching on ESPN, the Buckeyes appear to be sucking....

There are 8 minutes left in the first half. Slow starts are nothing new for this team.

Braxton2Devin's picture

You're right Sarah. Why do all Buckeye athletic teams (or at least Football and Basketball) always start out slow.... It's really agitating, and it will hurt you against better teams

Braxton2Devin's picture

Thomas just can't get his shot going. Kansas game all over again

great defensive possession... nearly stole the ball twice and denied the inbound. Just great.

Buckeye Chuck's picture

Smith can't defer as much as he did last year. No reason why Thomas should have 3 times more shot attempts than Smith if he's going to miss most of them.

That assist by Craft badger was ridiculous! If Craft badger can drive and kick out like that consistently, this team is going to be extremely tough to beat. 
A very nice tray knocked down at the buzzer by Scarlet Mamba.

thatlillefty's picture

Craft badger and scarlet mamba, lol.

osubuckeye4life's picture

Someone came up with Scarlet Mamba or Smith last year in the live thread. 
Craft badger orginated there as well. Not sure who came up with that one. I just remember I started refering to Caft as Craft badger becasue I felt that he needed a good nickname. I was hearing all about Tyran Maithu from LSU since it was around Heisman and bowl selection time last year. I felt Craft was even more like the honey badger than Maithu.

Buckeye Chuck's picture

Good finish to the half. I'd like to us working on trying to develop some alternative  forms of offense in the second half, though.

Sam Thompson's D caused that timeout.

Squirrel Master's picture

I had a feeling Craft was going to shoot better this year. So far, he is on fire! Need that because I can see that scoring will be very reliant on Thomas and if he gets streaky, not good! Need to see some more of Q in there, IMO.

BuckeyeUro's picture

Its a work in progress, this is just the season opener for God sake. I do have a faith they will improve down the road.

The feed say this is airing on BTN student U.  Does that mean this is a student broadcast?  I think Sylvester graduated a while ago but he could be a grad student I guess. If so, pretty cool.  These guys aren't bad.  

rdubs's picture

I think the only shot this team has a chance of making a big run is getting a guy like Craft as a scorer.  Ross has a shot at being a scorer, but he is such a liability on defense that it is hard to rely on him.  If Ravenel could develop an inside post move to score about 8-10 per game that would be another big help, but maybe Amir will come on and make that moot.  Craft certainly looks ready to be a scorer tonight, we'll have to see how he does against some better competition.

Squirrel Master's picture

Just saw where Noah Vonleh just committed to Indiana. Damn. Need some good recruiting news here. Hate seeing these kids go other places when there are probably 2-3 programs that are currently better than OSU. I just don't get it.

First 20-point game of Craft's career.
Our top two guys are as good as anybody's, but the supporting cast still needs lots of work.

Nice post-up by Trey. he got the foul too
