PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Tonight's officials: John Higgins, Tom O'Neill, Tim Clougherty
yay! B1G officials are the best!
Our guard play will determine the pace, we all know how Bo likes to slow it down and limit possessions. I want Amir to make a concerted effort to rebound. Get the fast break going and see if Thompson can stay hot. Go Bucks.
Wayne Woodrow Hayes
This is a big game.
Tre Mac time
I like Dakich but he's either drunk or misheard the coaches if he thinks Trey McDonald is a huge factor going forward.
I vote drunk.
Class of 2008
Somebody has to step it up
Block out and hit the boards Bucks!
"Fate has cards that it don't want to show"
hey!? was that an offensive rebound?
i really hate brusewitz
The Ginger Annoyance is not fun to watch.
I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!
good gravy Amir. Nice look by Thomas
first one to 30
Amir with 3 boards already, 2 offense (and no points)
If nothing else, the fear of McDonald cutting into his playing time has him working a little harder.
Amir Williams needs to be introduced to Mickey Marotti.
Playing the Badgers always preps you for the Big Dance
I just laugh that Dakich called him McDowell!
these shooting woes are not good man.... cant be missing shots with limited posessions
Craft has to make the little 10-12 foot jumpers
that defensive series was NASTY!!!!
should just have lenzelle guard their whole team if he plays like that
Dakich just said McDonald looked good for 6 minutes against Penn State.
Come on buckeyes score the ball!
Insert witty remark
geez..........and I thought Northern Ill was bad.
The SI article on Craft made a good point. He is such a thinker on defense, he tends to over-think his offense. Plus you can tell he doesn't trust his shot.
Both teams look like Wisconsin. Wish we would've donned the sweet gray unis.
"You win with people." - Woody Hayes
beautiful, draws contact and 1
edit: nvm, no and one
we tend to struggle guarding 3 pointers
Nice DT; keep taking it to the bucket; and we need to run when we have numbers
Moving screen........thats all that big dude on MSU did to us last week and was never called.
we need a second scorer so bad.....
Have to imagine they will get the ball to Ross, he's got a great match up.
if DT isnt in the game we dont break 30 points
Like watching a game from 1935.
I think we'll run the picket fence out of the time out.
"Say my name."
Bucks 11-9 halfway thru
9-8 Wisky under ten minutes
LaQuinton : Spanish for, The Quinton
That a way Q
It's now 13-13 under 8 min
4 threes for wisky
we down 14-13 at under 8 time out
Take it to the bucket and get some fouls on their big uglies
Oden and Michael Redd in the crowd. Nice.
Williams should never be blocked that bad
Craft should make that 90% of the time
looks like the rebounding is getting better
Amir chasing on D
Block that MF'er out dammit
thats 5 threes.
you cant be serious leaving this big men all alone on the three point line..... YOU KNOW THEY SHOOT THREES!!!
down 22-17 under 4 time out
In serious trouble. We just can't score.
God I hate the lumberjacks. How lucky have they gotten on so many of their three point chucks today?
October 20th: National Kenneth Guiton Day
yeah, one banked in, one died on the back of the rim, somehow.
Live by the three, die by........
lets get the ball to DT and stop leaving their shooters open
this is really terrible shooting wise
Ravenel continues to suck
now we need to stop missing free throws..... THEY ARE FREE!!!! come on DT!!
A 7 point lead in this game is like one of 20 in a normal game.
No words to describe how pathetic our offense is when Deshaun isn't scoring.
There we go craft
tide is turning
quick fouls baby, there you go Craft! be aggressive now
Nice.........Craft driving and making 15 footers is what we need.
He should step inside the 3 point line every time.
Keep taking it to the rack
I think I've said it twice already; take it to the hole and good things happen!
Thank god this team has a decent defense, they would be an unranked squad without it, the lack of scoring is going to cost them big time and everyone keeps talking about how they'll be playing at the end of the year and i hope that comes to fruition but the odds of that happening are not on the side of buckeye nation
Pretty simple; no matter the sport; if you play good defense you are always in the game; and when you are in the game you have a chance to win it.
Glass first my ass
man that was close.
this officiating crew did last nights WVU-KU game
This game is drink worthy. I'm starting to prepare myself for the worst if we lose. Bottums Up!
how tall is Sam Ponder?
ok, not a good half but not extremely terrible since we are still 2 pts down... Missed so many shots, and now like matta said we gotta keep attacking the basket and sink shots
Confident we will end this game with a W. Lets go bucks!
Halftime, and more starters haven't scored than have scored.
The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.
This one is gonna come down to the wire, and I hate our end-of-half offense. Gonna need a beer for the 2nd half.
We don't give a damn for the whole state of Michigan, we're from O-HI-O!
Lenzelle hasn't been playing well recently.
Id think about starting Scott over Lenzelle.
See how Lenzelle does off the bench.
Same US team that was too lame to make the Olympics?
seeing a replay of the shot that died on the back of the rim got me real upset.... The fact that is was shot by b-witz just made me lose it
gotta love lapses
Side note...our court is pretty sweet
didnt even get a hand up
That drive is there all night.
consistent scoring is needed, not just in bunches and then nothing in between
jeesh we really struggle with guarding the 3's
these threes are pissing me off
two quick one's on DT
craft just shooting, doesnt look like he is thinking to hard tonight
energy getting up now. build it baby!!! get it going and run it
down 1 under 16 time out
wisky with 8 threes.........we got 2
Amir showing some emotion... what the hell? Dakich spot on w/ that statement.
Man I sure hope that wakes up Amir for the rest of the season. We need that bad.
Well...that was awkward for spielman...no?
"Winter is coming" - Urban Meyer
wisconsin gets all the breaks
Yes Amir! Get PISSED AW!
miss the travel, call another on DT
DT gettin nasty
i cannot believe how the ball just dies on the back of the rim. unbelievable
This is probably going to be an unpopular opinion, but I'm gonna say it anyway. This team will only go as far as Amir Williams can contribute to the frontcourt. I'm sorry, but I am as unimpressed with him as I was with Dallas Lauderdale. It's as if he doesn't look like he even cares out there on the floor. I want to see him succeed like everyone else does, I just don't think he will get much better. Last year he definitely got a pass. He was a Freshman and didn't see the court much. Is it me or does it seem like he is wearing cement shoes? He is 7 feet tall and I just don't understand how he can appear so unathletic. Maybe I am being too hard on him because OSU REALLY NEEDS HIM to show up. Please tell me what he does really well? For the record, any player who shoots free throws under 60% just isn't putting in the time to perfect his game. Maybe I'm just sick of watching just about everyone on this team struggle except for Thomas. Alright, let the onslaught begin...
BTW, Wisconsin basketball is horrible to watch. I don't know how their fans do it.
If they ever make a movie about Thad Matta I hope they have Bill Murray play him.....
good D, very good D. Kept his hands straight up. Very nice
Good bucket........but Rav needs to be stronger
"Sweep the leg, Johnny!"
WE GOT 50!!
This is what i like to see. Play like an angry basketball team.
They are waking up a bit,..finally. :) Take what they give ya!
Finally my blood pressure is starting to go down.
huge momentum shift
This team MUST develop a second scorer. We cannot sustain this the entire season.
DT in Beast Mode
DT is on fiiiiiahhhh!
DT posing on the 15-0 run
The rise of Amir! Come on big guy, show em what you got!
Man, I think Stallone could do ANOTHER Rocky movie. LOL!
this time he fights Adrian's ghost since he already exhausted all other avenues...
And DAMNIT!!! I HATE THESE 3's THEY ARE SHOOTING
Wait, maybe Evander Holyfield. He's still fighting. :)
If DT happens to get cold one game, we are totally screwed.
get a lead.........lose the focus
This team certainly does that very well!
I think Bo Ryan just has them shoot three balls in practice...
KEEP FEEDING THE BEAST!
he took scott's leg out man.... shady shady shady
Dirty dirty dirty.
that should have been an ejection. no need to go for the legs there
Big Steal by Scott! Did you see B'witz try to foul him? too fast!
BIG rebs from Rav!
not including the socring when we need it, but this is how to close out a game... very nice, minus the scoring.
Robinson Jr barely got to the rim
I LOVE YOU RAV!
nice shot by the raven
Rav coming up BIG!
awesome defense, great close out to the game, scoring starting to come too. Beautiful game, minus the first half, but we definitely turned it around after half, big time.
LOL.......how was there no call?
hahaha, the 'Deal With It' chant
Bo will NEVER live that comment down...
Since when is tripping not a foul?
Not an artistic success, but a win. Against Wisconsin, that's about the best you can hope for.
Some good things there in 2nd half to build on.
Amen to that
DEAL WITH IT, BO!!!!
At least Ryan shakes and doesnt do the Crean walk through.
Nothing like dancing on the field in 02...
Crean is as big a sore loser as there is.
Turned on game a bit late. Did Wisconsin really not shoot a free throw? If not, that is nuts.
That's what happens when you rarely drive and shoot a billion threes. #dealwithit
SPOILER ALERT: When more than half of your shots are three-pointers, you may not shoot a free throw in the game.
Wisconsin doesn't get to the line once ... Shoot some more 3s with those big oafs you morons.
That was some great defense and great team movement of the ball on that 15-0 run. I wish they could play that way all the time but if they do they will burn out the legs. Still good home court win, now we gotta hopefully steal games at michigan and indiana and hold home court as well.
