ugh, complete 180 in the past minute. went from shedding a tear at the end of under cover bosses to yelling at the tv to get this game started.
 
LETS GO BUCKS!!!!

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

Tim Miles very complimentary towards Ohio State

If anybody has a link, please let me know. I have Time Warner in Southern California. Safe to say I have no BTN.

BME_Buckeye's picture

BTN2Go
You should be able to use your Time Warner Cable information to login and watch the game online. If this doesn't work, reply back and I can send you more links. 
 

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

 

JakeBuckeye's picture

I'm pretty sure you have to have BTN on your TV to get BTN2Go :/

BME_Buckeye's picture

Front Row Sports
VipBox.TV
These two site usually stream the game if you are having trouble. That's about the best I can do. 

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

I think that Gallegos shot hit more rim and board for a made shot I think I've ever seen. 

Cleats8's picture

Anyone know a good link to stream/watch this on?  

Knarcisi's picture

Maybe C Carter can help Amir with his hands.

Amir doing some good OR work

I have this hope that he's starting to come to life, but I'm trying not to get too far ahead of myself.

Knarcisi's picture

Agreed but like earlier this week having a lot of trouble getting the ball back up to the rim. 

dubjayfootball90's picture

agreed with both you and Jason on this one, 100%

can you imagine having to watch penn state vs nebraska? shoot me in the face. 

Knarcisi's picture

More pump fakes and drives from Smith and Thompson rather than jacking 3s would make me a happy man. 

JLBNYC's picture

Nebraska is going to have big problems with OSU's D

from hot to cold, just like that

Throw it down young fella !

from hot to cold to slam

In other news Ohio State is up 1-0 in Hockey over Notre Dame!

Killer nuts's picture

Not the best start for deshaun so far

TLB's picture

Slop slop sloppy joes

Knarcisi's picture

DT will get his. He has a short memory. 

dubjayfootball90's picture

that dude on nebraska is HUGE!!! holy cow

TLB's picture

He pushed Smith out of bounds

BuddhaBuck's picture

Pun intended?...

Don't text while driving.

buckeye4life050233's picture

gotta do something different offensively......ravenel is such a liability when they don't have to guard him and can help off constantly from him

OSUNeedles's picture

Officials left the whistles in their lockers

Squirrel Master's picture

Amir in - +9. Amir out - negative 11. Just say in.

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

TLB's picture

I am beginning to dislike the 3 point line

JLBNYC's picture

nice play by Amir. Nice to see him do that to someone for a change, rather than it being done to him!

Buckeye1996's picture

I can't even get the game on an online radio stream. Bigten networks stinks!

NCBuck1's picture

Try 97.1 the fan.  Give em your email and you can listen online.

JLBNYC's picture

Big play - 3rd foul on Nebraska's big guy so close to the end of the half

buckeye4life050233's picture

that is one big dude on nebraska's team......

Buckeyevstheworld's picture

He looks bigger than 314.

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

Killer nuts's picture

Smart play by craft to jump into shrek and get him his 3rd foul

buckeye4life050233's picture

once again another game where we are not fouling the shooters and they haven't really been able to drive on us and cause fouls so far......wish we wouldn't have given up the 13-3 lead but hey this is an akward calm game before the crazy week with indiana and michigan

Buckeye1996's picture

Found a radio stream if anyone is interested. The announcers are pro nebraska though....

That was a pretty sweet three by Ross. Hopefully it builds his confidence. 

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

gh, amir should have had that

Conveniently right when I tune in we go on a 15-2 run

Knarcisi's picture

My 2 year old daughter stole the iPad. You guys got bumped for Dora. 

buckeye4life050233's picture

gotta have that rebound amir......geez you have him boxed out and ur 6'11" grab the dang ball with 2 hands

Knarcisi's picture

Told ya guys. No hands. 

buckeye4life050233's picture

DT is shooting badddddly tonight

dubjayfootball90's picture

not a bad half, still up by 9, good things to work on, and in a good posdition to get that W

Killer nuts's picture

I suppose if Deshaun's jumper is gonna fail him then it's best for it to happen against Nebrasketball 

Knarcisi's picture

Yep, but again, short memory. He can rip off 10 straight at any time.  Tonight looks like he just needs a little contact to have it fall. 

RedQueenRace's picture

I'm following along on radio and GameCast.  Why no Shannon Scott so far tonight?

buckeye4life050233's picture

he came in when we were up 13-3 and then they came scorching back and that replaced him with Q.....he doesn't provide the outside shot needed to stretch the d

RedQueenRace's picture

Thanks.  He isn't showing up in any of the boxscores for some reason.

dubjayfootball90's picture

alright lets get this second half started right. Time to put the pedal to the metal and keep the foot on their throats

dubjayfootball90's picture

good post up by smith man, good to see

Knarcisi's picture

13 travels every time he gets the ball and goes to dribble. 

dubjayfootball90's picture

damnit.... That is still sick, 62 minutes without allowing a free throw attempt, haha. That is playing some good, smart D

kr66osu's picture

Really terrible offense to open this half

BME_Buckeye's picture

Any chance the staff will make a Game Thread for the Michigan vs. Indiana game? 

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

 

smith5568's picture

Sidenote: I like the compliance commercial

Seth4Bucks's picture

Of course you do, it featured an unranked OSU team beating the #1 team in the nation during Matta's first year as our coach! Oh, I can still remember watching that game and just going crazy when that shot went in.

DLJad's picture

Good things happen when the ball is moved toward the hoop.

kr66osu's picture

oh god he just got destroyed by that crossover, good thing he missed the 3

dubjayfootball90's picture

lenzelle is doing some work on offense man

terrible travel, my goodness, so blatant
 
edit: yea they calld it, but funny to hear the fans reaction on it

kr66osu's picture

oh boy here come the whining Nebraska fans

Urbanmania's picture

Quick Cheeto break for Almeda

buckeye4life050233's picture

good little stretch here......gotta keep between 13 and try n push it to 19 or so....especially with their huge guy now sidelined with 4 fouls....put amir back out there to do some work

kr66osu's picture

come on just seal this stupid game

Knarcisi's picture

DT ... Wow ... lovin that contact tonight. 

Urbanmania's picture

Need to put the game away out of this TO

dubjayfootball90's picture

long shot, where are the rebounders?

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

DLJad's picture

Not a foul on LQR

kr66osu's picture

go up by 15 and then the offense completely dissappears
great

Knarcisi's picture

By the way, from this point forward, Crafty is no longer scoring optional.  We need him assertive offiensively as he has been the past few weeks. 

Urbanmania's picture

Got to hand it to the Nebraska fans. Have been loud all game.

dubjayfootball90's picture

how does williams not get these rebounds?

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

Veraton's picture

I don't understand this either, it's been the case all season.  I have seen this in other players, they get the ball in or near their hands and they just can't secure it for the life of them.

Veraton's picture

That was a sweet 3 by Lenzelle but I hate when the Buckeyes just start chucking up 3's, they need to fight for higher percentage shots instead of settling for the 3.

Urbanmania's picture

Nebraska being within even 10 is sort of embarrassing.

TLB's picture

Road game next week could be ugly

Seth4Bucks's picture

I'm trying to look at the silver lining, but perhaps this will help Matta focus the Bucks and tighten up their play? A little humility to help the Buckeyes realize that they still have a ways to go and can't coast.

TLB's picture

I hope so but they are not good on the road

Seth4Bucks's picture

Ugh, we're giving up WAY too many offensive boards to the Huskers.

dubjayfootball90's picture

this is bad

BME_Buckeye's picture

OMG end this game and play some good defense. 
Ohio State is tied with ND 2-2 going into the 3rd period in hockey. 

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

WHAT THE HELL, HOW CAN WE NOT REBOUND!!!!!???????????

UrbanCulture's picture

Another yucky game

TLB's picture

Fat dude out hustling athletes

Squirrel Master's picture

Almeida has 4 fouls! IDK, how about giving the ball in the post to get him out of there. I don't know why the guards aren't feeding the post to either Thomas or at least Amir. 

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

TLB's picture

They aren't even covering Williams or Thompson

Squirrel Master's picture

Williams was fed the ball in the first half 3 times. It created 4 free throws, 2 fouls and 4 points. That all happened before he took a seat after 5-6 mins. Since then, he has been fed once and was fouled and hit 2 more free throws. The one for 2 was after an offensive rebound and fouled again. 
Granted this is all against Nebraska but I say keep feeding him because at the very least he is getting fouls and hitting free throws.

Bobcat04's picture

This team just CAN NOT play with a lead. That said, Nebraska has had a ridiculous amount of garbage play their way. 

Squirrel Master's picture

Exactly. They have had at least 4 shots get a lucky bounce. 2 of which should never have gone in. 

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

TLB's picture

Thads been on that official all nite

dubjayfootball90's picture

HUGE shot, get 1 more then play some D!!!

Player of the game is Lenzelle. Dude showed up and we needed him. 

Mikefletcher24's picture

Looks like fat boys make up is running..
 

dubjayfootball90's picture

This rebounding is absolutely terrible. Inexcuseable

Squirrel Master's picture

I am going to enjoy watching UM vs Indy. Either way, one of them is going to lose and it will be sweet after this win. 

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

UrbanCulture's picture

Road win in the big ten is nothing to complain about. Just keep improving.

TLB's picture

I can't root for Crean
 

NoVA Buckeye's picture

God we're looking ahead, aren't we?

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

Veraton's picture

Amir is driving me insane, if the 3 is off the mark crash the boards don't just sit outside the 3 point line and watch...

Squirrel Master's picture

He is pretty slow with his reaction time. Sometimes it looks like he is trying to figure things out before he reacts. By that time, that Almeida kid is crashing the board. He does recover okay sometimes. 

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

dubjayfootball90's picture

ugly, ugly ugly.... but I will take it. WIN FOR THE BUCKEYES!!!

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

kr66osu's picture

also go Hoosiers

Knarcisi's picture

Make our own IU / scUM thread and just continue here?

DLJad's picture

I have a nearly equal level of contempt for both programs.
 
enjoying the pace of the game

DLJad's picture

Not pretty, but you have to be happy with W.

Squirrel Master's picture

I kind of thought all season UM is overrated! I think Indiana is much better. At least this year. If both teams stay together like this next year, I think UM would probably be a better team.

DLJad's picture

I always forget.  How many BIG or Natl championships did the Fab 5 win?
