Would love to take the regular season series.  Going to be tough...

Mike Bianchi's article for the Orlando Sentinel today. Literally titled, "Could Gators beat (the Orlando) Magic?" This guy continues to fail at life.

kr66osu's picture

high quality journalism right there especially as I'm watching Florida's unbelievably good performance at Arkansas right now

oregonianbuckeye's picture

Same starters for tosu today. Haven't heard starters for ttun. Should be interesting to see if Morgan (normal starter), Horford (started sat @ IU) or MM (played best on sat) will start at center. Other four spots are predictable.

bergy22's picture

Sounds like a good problem to have

oregonianbuckeye's picture

None of those guys are good.

gneptuneproductions's picture

He said Donovan the greatest college coach (Football and Basketball) in Florida's history. Sounds they're still a bit bitter after the whole Urban Meyer debacle. 

TLB's picture

ugh Vitale.
 

Earle's picture

Already sick of Vitale.

Italics are for emphasis.

UrbanCulture's picture

Gotta come out strong

Optimistic Buckeye Pessimist's picture

Need a big game from amir

Read my entire screen name....

Jdadams01's picture

Michigan's neon pee colored unis are awful.

UrbanCulture's picture

bad call early lol

TLB's picture

Their uni's get uglier and uglier

Optimistic Buckeye Pessimist's picture

Really. That was a foul?

Read my entire screen name....

Earle's picture

Those have to be the worst uniforms I've ever seen.

Italics are for emphasis.

USMCBUCKEYE82's picture

Have to be the worst uniforms of all time. Worse than the Steelers striped throwbacks.

Jack Fu's picture

Good god. What terrible, terrible uniforms for both sides.

OSUStu's picture

I mean OSU's aren't great but at least they don't make you squint.

If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.  ~ Bruce Lee

joshhersh's picture

Why does SCum even have their names on their jerseys?  Can't see them anyway

BuckeyeKrime's picture

Surprised they didnt show hoke deep throating a hot dog.

headina's picture

So FAT

GO BUCKS

Earle's picture

Did Hoke get 2 seats as part of his contract?

Italics are for emphasis.

Veraton's picture

Agree on the uniforms.
I keep waiting for things to click with Amir, he needs to be more physical and aggressive under the rim.  I get so frustrated watching him play...

Baroclinicity's picture

Jam it Amir.

When you're holding a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

Tim's picture

I like how we're getting the ball inside, not settling for long 3s like we sometimes do.

Optimistic Buckeye Pessimist's picture

Thatta baby. Nice rotation and way to hit the post. Great position

Read my entire screen name....

Squirrel Master's picture

Keep feeding Amir! He gets fouls.

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

Tim's picture

Stauskas travel.

TLB's picture

Jab his ribs a little

TLB's picture

damn.  I was afraid of this.  

UrbanCulture's picture

lenzelle vs big time opponents= no show

thatlillefty's picture

looked like a clean clock

bergy22's picture

Weak pass, bad shot. Big Game Lenzelle
 

Jack Fu's picture

Wow. Unless there are some serious perspective problems with this camera angle, that goaltend on Thompson is a terrible call.

oregonianbuckeye's picture

Hopefully L shows up. Not the start we were hoping for out of him.

Schierbuck's picture

We had to dim our TV those unis were hurting my eyes.

kr66osu's picture

offense picking up right were they left off, a.k.a nothing

farmerbuck's picture

Piss on M______n!! Oh, never mind it looks like someone already did! Those unis are fugly!

You have to hate losing more than you love winning! GO BUCKS!!

bergy22's picture

...and a travel. magnificent
 

bergy22's picture

Williams is trash
 

Earle's picture

C'mon Amir!

Italics are for emphasis.

TLB's picture

it's like we play 3 on 5

Knarcisi's picture

Grab the god damn ball Amir!

johnblairgobucks's picture

Does Vitale have a clothes pin restricting his nostrils...... the nasality of his voice is extreme.

Jack Fu's picture

Nice offensive possession. More of that, plz.

Veraton's picture

Two solid possessions by the buckeyes, good ball movement.  They need more of that, I love  what Scott brings off the bench as well.

TLB's picture

teetering on blowout

Jack Fu's picture

Okay, if Stauskas is going to make everything we can just pack up and go home.

johnblairgobucks's picture

Terico is evidently happy.  He is not trying to hide his happiness nor his dejection when OSU hit's a basket.

Bucks43201's picture

Burke is good, but my dear Lord does Burke get away with pushing off!

"You win with people." - Woody Hayes

BuddhaBuck's picture

God I love Sam Thompson.

Don't text while driving.

TLB's picture

you can all RISE

jestertcf's picture

Get it Sam!!!

~Because we couldn't go for three~

BuckeyeChief's picture

Nice!

 

"Clutch has no boundaries"

Knarcisi's picture

We can run with these guys. 

Baroclinicity's picture

Scott coming into his own lately.

When you're holding a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

Tim's picture

Still hanging in there, like the bounce back after that run by Michigan.

Knarcisi's picture

Need lots of burst minutes off the bench from Scott. Different pace and energy when he is in the game. 
 

kr66osu's picture

Solid comeback, keep it up

M1CAH4's picture

SLAM THOMPSON!!

thatlillefty's picture

please leave Thompson in the game

William's picture

Great job Ravenel....

Tim's picture

Our bigs have terrible hands.

BuckeyeChief's picture

Rav is killing me

 

"Clutch has no boundaries"

M1CAH4's picture

is it just me or does it look like the other team is wearing rain guloshes? 

Knarcisi's picture

We are in a zone. 

William's picture

Hands of stone by Ravenel so far. 

BuckeyeChief's picture

Ravenel is the human rally killer.

 

"Clutch has no boundaries"

kr66osu's picture

for f***'s sake ravenel

Knarcisi's picture

Can't man up with these guys?  Don't understand a zone. They can shoot. 

TLB's picture

They need to shut up about Burke.  He was a 3 star recruit.

William's picture

Those uniforms are hurting my eyes. 

Tim's picture

Hahaha it's fun to see Spike Albrecht get owned on back to back possessions.

TLB's picture

Craft's form is painful to watch

William's picture

Man that shot was patheticly short. barely drew front iron. 

kr66osu's picture

Good thing Burke is out otherwise they would probably be up by 10 right now

RedStorm45's picture

I'll pay Craft $5 to hit a broadside of the barn and $5 to Shannon Scott if he can make a layup.

bergy22's picture

1. drive baseline
2. jump and try to pass
3. Pass it out to near halfcourt
4. Repeat

Knarcisi's picture

Michigan plays street ball. Just might suit us considering we can't stand a half court offensive game. 

TLB's picture

Playing awful and only down 2

William's picture

Ross has to make those. 

TLB's picture

uh......their guy swatted it out

BuckeyeChief's picture

Please put a sock in it Dickie V.

 

"Clutch has no boundaries"

TLB's picture

and his Michigan native partner

johnblairgobucks's picture

sounds like he has a sock shoved up each nostril...
OHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!.....EHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!...did you see that?......OHHHH!!!!!!!!!.

Tim's picture

Yay Ross! Nice to have someone who can make a deep 3 like that.

William's picture

Why do they always overhelp? 

Jack Fu's picture

MICHIGAN: "Make ALL the threes!"

TLB's picture

Turico knows what kind of undies they are wearing, but he doesn't know who is who on the good team

BuckeyeChief's picture

Great D!

 

"Clutch has no boundaries"

Veraton's picture

Is it just me or does M*chigan seem absolutely shocked that we are hanging with them right now?

William's picture

Man, Smith didn't need to take that. 

Tim's picture

Unbelievable defense by Craft on that Burke drive.

thatlillefty's picture

Our guys are hanging tough... gotta love the effort.

Knarcisi's picture

Almost hate when lenzelle hits outside early. He will settle for that look all night now instead of dribble and drive like he should primarily be doing. 

Baroclinicity's picture

Could that be our ball?

When you're holding a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

Jack Fu's picture

Swedish Chef ESPN commercial = gold.
 
BORK BORK BORK!

Knarcisi's picture

Great effort thus far. Close the half strong. No easy looks for SCum. 

headina's picture

I'm sorry Burke is good and all but craft OWNS him in this series

GO BUCKS

TLB's picture

Was great early against lesser competition, but in the B1G he has really slowed.

Baroclinicity's picture

I hate that crap, throwing it off the legs...

When you're holding a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

headina's picture

Dickie v just said sully is a beautiful kid!?!

GO BUCKS

Knarcisi's picture

Bad shot Burke. 

headina's picture

Such crap

GO BUCKS

Mikefletcher24's picture

How many donuts does hoke have in his pocket?

johnblairgobucks's picture

come on, that is a trick question. 
Hoke takes a donut and puts it in his mouth, they never have a chance to make it to his pocket.

TLB's picture

LOL......we played awful and lead at the half

Tim's picture

Couldn't ask for more than a halftime lead.

Veraton's picture

Wow admittedly did not expect to be up at halftime, loving the effort so far.  Craft is all over the place!

Knarcisi's picture

Good close!  Right where we wanna be. 

BuckeyeChief's picture

Glad we got the lead at the half, DT has been quiet.

 

"Clutch has no boundaries"

Powers's picture

That a way to step up Q!

TLB's picture

How tall is Samantha?

headina's picture

Who cares she is awful like every espn woman sideline reporter

GO BUCKS

Knarcisi's picture

Tellin ya, these guys are street ballers. Our D bothers them badly. 

kr66osu's picture

Great to be leading after trailing by 10 early

Rather_Be_Golfing's picture

Key Points from 1st half 
1a) Great energy by Scott.  Changed the game completely for us.
1b) Ross is our X factor.  Truly coming on
2) Craft - I said it his frosh year.  Best on ball defender I have ever seen at any level.  Trey Burke can ball and Craft stalls him (or at least slows him down).  Just incredible.
3) Amir could do better, I really wish it.  But, reality is he is playing better minutes.
4) What is up with Ravs.  2 TO's in a row.  Come on, not in a game like this.
5) Moving DT around to get him looks.  I will hand it to Thad (I have been tough on him this season).  Great move putting him in the post to get DT the ball and try to avoid double teams.
Awesome half.  Not sure if we get more of same in 2nd half, but this is better than I expected. 
Go Bucks
 
 

oregonianbuckeye's picture

Craft is leading the game in rebounding. For reals.

oregonianbuckeye's picture

I don't Matta will do this, but I'd think about a lineup with Q at the 4 and DT at the 5. Mich runs mostly ball screen. If they want to post MM, have at it. Also, who is MM going to guard? 

Knarcisi's picture

SCum will get frustrated with our D. Street ballers with little patience. 

BME_Buckeye's picture

Missed the first half, I'm here now! Lets get this party started and match their offensive performance for this next 20 mins! BTw those uniforms are UGLY! 

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

 

bergy22's picture

Lets go Bucks! win the second half
 

sb97's picture

I have an important announcement...
I do not like *ichigan.
Please resume discussing the game.

sb97's picture

My guess is we are about to see 20 minutes of zone D from the highlighters

Knarcisi's picture

Hey assholes, Ohio, Ohio U beat you in the tourney last year. 

Rather_Be_Golfing's picture

Tell TSUN that you need to start winning some games for you to keep up this crap.
 
And Dickie V.  We do not want you for any semester.  Go back to the ACC and fall all over Duke and NC.  Or in your case this year.  The U.

Knarcisi's picture

News flash. Brady Hoke is still a fatass. 

William's picture

Thompson was just beaten by a Canadian. What is the world coming to? 

William's picture

Don't like that possession by Thomas. 

Powers's picture

forced shot by DT then doesn't hustle back

Tim's picture

Huge and-1 by Thomas!  Nice effort!

William's picture

Now that was a play by Thomas. 

Knarcisi's picture

DT. Junkyard dog. 

Earle's picture

Someone want to guard Burke maybe?

Italics are for emphasis.

William's picture

Well that sucks. 

Tim's picture

Holy shit Craft! 

Veraton's picture

Oh wow craft from doooowntooown.

Baroclinicity's picture

Holy shot!!!

When you're holding a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

Tim's picture

They can't review that, right?

TLB's picture

make up calls coming

headina's picture

Lol craft

GO BUCKS

ATXbucknut's picture

Ha! Even the haters are respecting Craft tonight.
 

William's picture

Lenzelle come on buddy. 

highwire's picture

Lenzelle looks like Betty Spaghetti on his head fakes.

Rather_Be_Golfing's picture

Nice block Amir.  Strong
 

TLB's picture

blew the whistle before there was contact

Earle's picture

Good foul!

Italics are for emphasis.

Rather_Be_Golfing's picture

oh no.  Ravs is in.  Please don't touch the ball.  Please.

William's picture

Don't know about that call but I'll take it. 

headina's picture

Great call

GO BUCKS

Powers's picture

barely is all you need morons. Turico is better than that

argyle182021's picture

Weak contact, but he hit Thomas' shooting arm in the act

TLB's picture

there will be more than one make up call

William's picture

Craft has stickum on his hands. 

Powers's picture

Thomas just cant make the run capping shot

Knarcisi's picture

They stay in zone and Thomas will make a living in that high post. 

kr66osu's picture

refs are blatantly on our side today

Veraton's picture

Burke is getting frustrated..

Baroclinicity's picture

Prepare for Michigan run.

When you're holding a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

Powers's picture

If your going to foul... FOUL!

argyle182021's picture

Rav needs to quit switching on screens

Rather_Be_Golfing's picture

I mean is Ravs now only available to foul.  Can Trey M play at all?
 

Earle's picture

Very Big Dog-like shot there

Italics are for emphasis.

TLB's picture

how is that not a double dribble?

TLB's picture

Turico is blatently rooting for them

highwire's picture

LaQ is playing great

William's picture

Amir Williams has deer-hands. 
Man, someone guard Hardaway. 

Mi.Buckeye's picture

Thompson is becoming one of my favorite Buckeyes. He said get that shit out of here!

Rather_Be_Golfing's picture

how about we start guarding 3's pretty please
 

Earle's picture

The Bucks can play with anyone if Q plays like this.

Italics are for emphasis.

William's picture

Ugh, here comes the swing. 

Rather_Be_Golfing's picture

bad call.  either a foul or still our ball.  terrible.

TLB's picture

but he was emphatic, so he must be right.

highwire's picture

What the fuck is that ref so enthusiastic about...a rooting interest?

Powers's picture

I agree with your first statement. No ref should ever be energetic when making a call. Makes you look like you're just making the call to keep the home crowd going.

dubjayfootball90's picture

everytime they show denard I throw up in my mouth

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

brumon's picture

No, that was whoopi Goldberg

Knarcisi's picture

Hey Denard. 1-3. 

VHX7's picture

Just turned this game on 5 minutes ago and have already seen Denard Robinson shown on TV 4 times. Why am I not surprised?

Jack Fu's picture

Michigan is making more than 50% of their 3-pointers. At home. And we're winning. The Bucks are playing great so far.

Optimistic Buckeye Pessimist's picture

Q given up the past 2 threes. He's playing great on offense but just cost us 6 by not getting over top of the screens. 

Read my entire screen name....

Knarcisi's picture

There's our 2 calls back. Missed a walk on the loose ball before Thugaways 1st 3. 

TLB's picture

wont be the last.

Rather_Be_Golfing's picture

Time to get DT some looks and stop this run.
That is an order!!!  lol...
Go Bucks

OSUAndy07's picture

Stop. Showing. Denard. Robinson.

"But I'm tryin' Ringo. I'm tryin', real hard, to be the shepherd"

Rather_Be_Golfing's picture

Big Dog could flat out play.  He was nasty.

Knarcisi's picture

Someone wanna out a fucking hand in his face?

Optimistic Buckeye Pessimist's picture

First we have to figure out how to go over top if the screen. 

Read my entire screen name....

Knarcisi's picture

Or learn how to switch. Jesus. 

johnblairgobucks's picture

life on the road in the Big 10 is sooooo hard too watch. Terico pulls out his "Wizard of OZ" man behind the curtain, booming voice when Michig*n does well, and we get repeated shots of a Michigan football player who, after 4 years of school, doesn't know how to tie his shoes.

Earle's picture

What do they call you when your dad is Big Dog? Lap Dog?

Italics are for emphasis.

William's picture

Son of a Bitch..

Earle's picture

Yeah, but that works for all wolverines, doesn't it?

Italics are for emphasis.

DetroitBuckeye's picture

Why does it seem like Denard is at every single Michigan game for everything?

 
Tim's picture

Mitch McGary? More like Bitch McGary!

BME_Buckeye's picture

Who ever the a**hat is yelling Craft you Suck and Craft you travel must be really butthurt! Lets  finish them off! 10-0 run and suck the life out this building! 

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

 

Rather_Be_Golfing's picture

Q's coming out party.  Scorer.
DT and Q show.  Keep it up...

dubjayfootball90's picture

I hate scUM so much, it is unbelievable

Don't worry, I believe you.

I am right there with you.

QQQQQQQQQQQQQQ. That is all.

Rather_Be_Golfing's picture

what a freaking game.  B1G basketball is Awesome

TLB's picture

Place is still a dump, just put a little paint on it

AltaBuck's picture

Regardless of the outcome, Ross has finally arrived in a big game. Very important for the rest of the season going into the tourney.

dubjayfootball90's picture

HOLY HELL COVER HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!

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

Powers's picture

Scott cant stick him

Optimistic Buckeye Pessimist's picture

Too short to effect the shot

Read my entire screen name....

William's picture

Is someone going to defend Hardaway? 

VHX7's picture

Amazed that this is still close with the way Hardaway is shooting. OSU finally showing up offensively on the road.

Tim's picture

Maybe don't leave Hardaway.

smartfootballrankings's picture

Michigan - get luckier with your 3s.

VHX7's picture

These aren't luck, they've all been wide open.

smartfootballrankings's picture

He's not going to hit that many in practice.  They are running extremely hot.

headina's picture

Finally Williams does something positive

GO BUCKS

Rather_Be_Golfing's picture

Freaking eh.  Put AC on him.  

TLB's picture

If you were blind and listening to these jokers you'd think we were down 20 or more

BuckeyeChief's picture

Amir looks like a beast tonight!

B1G  THREEEEEEEEEEEE

BuckeyeChief's picture

hate to say it, but both teams are balling tonight.

 

"Clutch has no boundaries"

thatlillefty's picture

my god... what are these two teams shooting right now?

Lincoln's picture

Man this game has been pure entertainment 

Rather_Be_Golfing's picture

Sure has.  Best game I have seen all season across the board.  Either one of these teams could get to FF.  Maybe they will.  Let's get 3 out of 4 this year with IU.  And Kansas.  That ticket would sell.

headina's picture

F Kansas. Sparty

GO BUCKS

VHX7's picture

Totally. As annoying as these Michigan 3's have been, the ups and downs are what makes it so fun to watch.

headina's picture

Q the man tonight 

GO BUCKS

highwire's picture

Can Q get some more minutes now?

Knarcisi's picture

We've had offensive answers for their runs. Ross ... Huge. 

BuckeyeLawyer's picture

Defensively we are getting switched up pretty badly.  Too many times we have a big on Burke while Craft is guarding their big under the basket. 

thatlillefty's picture

B1G game of the year so far... no doubt.

Optimistic Buckeye Pessimist's picture

Iu msu was pretty good too

Read my entire screen name....

Dublin68's picture

Craft should guard hardway

frustratedbuckeye's picture

Let's see a starting lineup of Thomas, Craft, Ross, Williams, Smith please.
 

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Aaron Craft is Burke's worst nightmare.

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

William's picture

Bad, bad foul by Williams. 

Powers's picture

weak sauce foul again

dubjayfootball90's picture

wow

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

Tim's picture

Just box him out, Ross! Don't go after the ball!

Earle's picture

Lazy!

Italics are for emphasis.

William's picture

It's like Ohio State sports team want me to go into cardiac arrest. 

TLB's picture

I didn't think he was going to call it

dubjayfootball90's picture

AMIR!!!!!

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

Veraton's picture

Monster DUNK.. where has this been all season Amir.  Finally!
 

headina's picture

DAMN WILLIAMS

GO BUCKS

argyle182021's picture

Hardaway pushed off
 

dubjayfootball90's picture

AMIR AGAIN 2.0!!!!

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

toad1204's picture

Amir.. BEASTMODE

Nothing like dancing on the field in 02... 

VHX7's picture

Mother of god. Amir Williams.

William's picture

Where has this Amir been? 

jestertcf's picture

love this new Amir.

~Because we couldn't go for three~

Baroclinicity's picture

Send it home big fella!!!

When you're holding a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

Veraton's picture

Amir with the huge confidence boosters, he could be huge the rest of the game.
 

DetroitBuckeye's picture

This might be amir's best game.

 
Squirrel Master's picture

Amir Williams breakout game! Playing solid so far.

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

frustratedbuckeye's picture

God I hate listening to Vitale.  Let's hear about Sullinger and Buford some more.
 

VHX7's picture

Nope. Let's talk about the Fab 5 for the 1000th time during a Michigan basketball game.

TLB's picture

Never won anything

highwire's picture

Sully is so beautiful

dubjayfootball90's picture

gah this game is so good right now!!

dubjayfootball90's picture

craft defense is beautiful

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

VHX7's picture

Craft is really unbelieveable defensively.

highwire's picture

Playing against Craft has to be one of the circles of Hell.

Squirrel Master's picture

Stauskas just learned CraftFu! Lesson #1!

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

Alex Boones Liver's picture

Just got a text from a friend at the game that Dickie V walked into a glass doorway thus the damage to the bridge of his nose.  Had medics fix him up...Maybe he has trouble walking and talking at the same time
 

Earle's picture

GAH!!

Italics are for emphasis.

dubjayfootball90's picture

DAMNIT!!!!! I HATE U scUM!!!!

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

TLB's picture

Tirico is pissing me off

William's picture

All on Craft. Trying to do too much. 

DetroitBuckeye's picture

Pull it together BOYS.
 

frustratedbuckeye's picture

Wow those were two horrible possesions
 

Baroclinicity's picture

How quickly the momentum shifts...

When you're holding a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

VHX7's picture

Too bad Craft's offense is the polar opposite of his defense.

highwire's picture

WTF is up with the arena soundtrack?

dubjayfootball90's picture

12 three pointers...... wow

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

Earle's picture

C'non, we've played too well to blow this now!

Italics are for emphasis.

johnblairgobucks's picture

If I had a chance to, and wouldn't get arrested for doing it..... I'd punch Denard, Terico and Vitale in the face.

Alex Boones Liver's picture

I'd bust an empty bottle of Jameson on Hoke's nose too...
 

William's picture

Man, Michigan has some busted cheerleaders. 

TLB's picture

have you seen the pasty white sock monkeys on our dance team?

Jack Fu's picture

Michigan is shooting 67% on their three-pointers. And they're winning by 1. One.

Amir Williams has looked really good lately, he even just got a rebound.

You could hear the dissapointment in Tirico's voice when the foul was called there.

oregonianbuckeye's picture

Not sure why DT isn't seeing the ball much on offensive as of late. High ball screen isn't optimal when Craft can't handle the double.

scUM 3-point shots have to cool off her soon, I am calling they go ice cold from behind the arc from here on out. Live by the three, die by the three.... they used up all their magic...

Both teams playing clutch as hell. Unbelieveable game.

Ahhhhhh damn it, now they can take the last shot. Huge shot though, Lenzelle.

lets see if we can defend the pick and roll

Fantastic discipline by Deshaun Thomas there.

Wait.  Are our warmups hoodies?

OMG WE ARE STILL IN THE GAME! 

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

 

Earle's picture

Really not a very good possession by UM there. Let's hope they cool off in OT.

Italics are for emphasis.

RedQueenRace's picture

They just cooled off.  Down to 65% from 3.

William's picture

That was idiotic. You need one point to win. Drive the lane dumbass. Not like I'm complaining though. 

VHX7's picture

Especially considering he had DT switched on him. He could have driven by Thomas in a heartbeat.

DetroitBuckeye's picture

GREAT DEFENSE BOYS, I really thought going into that possession that they would win the game on the last shot/dunk.

Nothing could be more detrimental to my health right now than overtime.

Really surprised! There is NO WAY SCUM should lose at home, 2 losses in a row, and get swept by thier rival! I thought we would get killed tonight!

If Michigan wasn't so money from 3 then the game wouldn't be this close.

Nice defensive rebounding, we some a good solid possesion now
edit: need some

OT always seems to ruin great games when it happens.

Boy does Thompson have some hops. Nice rebound.

Is that Robin Dagger behind Vitale?

Can we just get a freaking shot off please??

Italics are for emphasis.

USMCBUCKEYE82's picture

Hey Matta how about you do something about these offensive possesions!!! This is horrendous.

William's picture

Huh? He's not the one turning the ball over. He can call a play, but he can't do anything about a guy throwing the ball away..

William's picture

That's ball game

Craft last shot.....are you freaking kidding me?  Thomas or Q please?
 

USMCBUCKEYE82's picture

Why is Craft shooting that ball? SMH

wmbuckeye557's picture

He slapped both of Crafts hands !

Dublin68's picture

That a home court adv for u

argyle182021's picture

Craft fouled his hand first

USMCBUCKEYE82's picture

If they call this a flagrant, I am gonna lose it

UrbanCulture's picture

you can't decide the game on this.

BuckeyeChief's picture

Not gonna call the one on Craft, but then call a flagrant on him, smh.

 

"Clutch has no boundaries"

1MechEng's picture

Flagrant 1 on craft?

Tim's picture

If this is flagrant, it's fucking bullshit.  After all the terrible calls in the second half and overtime, they cannot call this flagrant.

Earle's picture

I don't like the look of this conference by the refs.

Italics are for emphasis.

dr green's picture

The OT was painful to watch.

jaxbuckeye's picture

Another GREAT coaching job Matta.  EVERYONE wants Craft taking the last shot...  This is really getting old.

William's picture

I love how in College Basketball, you can't challenge a foul, but refs can possibly retroactively enact them..

CALPOPPY's picture

Goodness, thought they were gonna get Craft for hitting him in the head.

I'm a hurtin' buckaroo.

1MechEng's picture

C'mon, miss one ft.

USMCBUCKEYE82's picture

Get the ball to Thomas or Q

USMCBUCKEYE82's picture

No foul are you crapping me!!!!!!!!!!!!

smartfootballrankings's picture

If you smash the ball so hard it knocks the guy holding it to the ground, it's not a foul.  Maybe if Craft didn't try to be a hero, we'd be watching OT #2.  LOL 2 points in OT.

smartfootballrankings's picture

Craft WOAT on offense, why does he think he needs to do it all?

RedQueenRace's picture

Two tough road losses in the mitten state.

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Haha what a joke.

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

LouieG's picture

That was an awful no call. Just pathetic.

VHX7's picture

It was a foul, but honestly, what the hell was Craft doing driving into Hardaway in the first place?

BuckeyeChief's picture

F this. Craft got fouled and then mugged. Stop blaming Matta, stop blaming Craft. Hard to make a shot when you are getting mugged.

Why does OSU continue to stop feeding Thomas the ball at the end of games? Also BS of a no call
 

jaxbuckeye's picture

Thad, would like to take this one?

DetroitBuckeye's picture

DEFINITELY A FOUL.

 
William's picture

Solid game. Good performance by OSU. There were some ugly moments, but taking Michigan into OT in their house is a solid performance. 

VHX7's picture

Yeah. Sounds stupid to say, but that was the most encouraging game I've watched all season, even though they lost.

brylee's picture

BULLSHIT no call!

Jack Fu's picture

Nice to play at home. You needed to make 2/3 of their three-pointers and get the benefit of numerous questionable calls in order to win. Hope you enjoyed it, UM fans. You got the help you needed and finally won one. Good luck...

Good game, Buckeyes.

Not that i agree with out offense on the last possession, but how do you not call a foul. Two guys all over him; even Dickie V thinks thats an automatic foul call. Thats home court pressure...

falconlax13's picture

Also, if Lenzelle Smith gets his toe behind the line for his long 2, we win the ballgame in regulation...

brandonbauer87's picture

We don't feed DT late because he forces shots more than craft does. A timeout needs to be called and a play drawn up. Craft, lenzelle and DT force things when the pressure is on
