NC State vs Clemson is the game being played in SC on CBS.... Pretty lame

NCBuck1's picture

Same here in NC.  Cbssports.com has it on.

Timmeh's picture

Good to know. Thanks

BME_Buckeye's picture

Last time #1 came to Columbus they lost. Illinois in 2005! 

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

Lets go get 'em today boys

JakeBuckeye's picture

is it just me or does it look empty in the schott? if so, how sad buckets fans.

sb97's picture

My big fear is that Amir and LaQ's big games against *ihigan were partially due to the weasel's inability to play D.

TLB's picture

too easy part 2

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Indiana looks focused. Could be a long day for the Buckeyes I'm afraid.

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Amir Williams has greatly improved his rebounding, and Craft has been stepping up offensively.

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

TLB's picture

Cant handle their bigs

TLB's picture

I do not like Tom Crean

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Upvote this into space.

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

Unky Buck's picture

Crowd sounds great right now.

...

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Lenzelle needs to calm down on the quick trigger threes.

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

BME_Buckeye's picture

Why are we trying to get into a up and down game with IU. We will not win doing that. Slow things down and take the shot that is best when open. 

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

 

TLB's picture

Hulls cant handle Craft, we need to take advantage of that

dubjayfootball90's picture

boy do I hate tom crean

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

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Over/under 25 "I hate Tom Crean" comments. I'll take the over

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

dubjayfootball90's picture

haha, I will take the under on this one, haha

bergy22's picture

Lets get Zeller in foul trouble and then we'll be okay
 

WolverineKiller's picture

Great D Leads to a DT 3

Just Win.

Unky Buck's picture

The D has been tenacious. Just need the offense to come alive.

...

TLB's picture

Here's an idea, lets try to get a rebound instead of watching them get a rebound

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Crowd is awesome! Love our home court!

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

bergy22's picture

boy that was a sweet move by Craft
 

TLB's picture

Best floor in the B1G

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Q got hammered on that drive geesh.

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

dubjayfootball90's picture

anyone know if the HS football Juniors on visits are at the game today?

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

johnblairgobucks's picture

the kid wearing #1 for Indiana is annoying

WolverineKiller's picture

Aaron could have 20+ this game. 

Just Win.

osubuckeye4life's picture

Man, I hate Tom Crean!

TLB's picture

had to pull that out

TLB's picture

better call that on both ends

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Weak call on Thomas. This is the big ten let em play

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

WolverineKiller's picture

This is gonna be a helluva game.  I rarely see Scott finish a 1 on 1 fast break situation, so frustrating!!!

Just Win.

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Q is coming on!

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

WolverineKiller's picture

It's his new haircut.

Just Win.

dubjayfootball90's picture

get the And 1 baby!!

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

Tim's picture

oh my god, a blocking foul in college basketball!

bergy22's picture

Q really coming on. Starts with work on D.

osubuckeye4life's picture

Paris Campbell just commited to the good guys! Man, Urban Assault is wasting no time!

dubjayfootball90's picture

woah, wiat, what? After Lawrence and Trout? You kidding?

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

osubuckeye4life's picture

No sir grey box incoming in probably 5 min or so. 

dubjayfootball90's picture

thanks for the news. That is freaking un believable, yea buddy, haha

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

osubuckeye4life's picture

No problem I just saw Alex post it on my twitter feed per Marc Givler from BG. Plus, I figured that this would be a good place to post since most of us follow FB recruiting as well.

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Wow 3 in one day. Must have been a hell of a weekend.

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

Unky Buck's picture

LaQ seems like he is starting to find his groove. Have to love that!

...

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

DT and Q two man game is looking good!

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

dubjayfootball90's picture

Q is basically coming to age before our eyes. The last few games has been a noticeable difference in his confidence and overall game play. It has been real fun to watch and I can't wait to see it progress

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

popeurban's picture

I am so thankful for this.  We might be able to make a run with the youth movement finally coming of age.

skiehl's picture

Love Q and Thomas on the floor together

Urbanmania's picture

Great effort by ravenel

TLB's picture

stumble my behind

WolverineKiller's picture

Thomas is trying to do too much right now... forcing shots.

Just Win.

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Refs have been favoring Indiana. God I hate Tom Crean

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

FROMTHE18's picture

cant let them make runs today

Tim's picture

flopping should be a technical foul.

TLB's picture

Sterretore is killing us

bergy22's picture

What a flop. Hulls like his coach = douche

TLB's picture

Thad is letting them have it for a change

bergy22's picture

How is IU getting home court calls in Columbus? Must be payback for Columbus East in football

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Craft is so damn good on the ball

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

TLB's picture

Love Clark, but he is trying too hard not to be a homer

penult's picture

First time I can remember having to put him on mute. He is terrible today.
Couldn't see the hook by #11 on Craft? Really? I could see his hand on the back of Craft's jersey.

johnblairgobucks's picture

Time to practice Indiana defensive fundamentals

bergy22's picture

Seriously? Its the BigTen let them play

TLB's picture

Fouls are 9-6, but our bigs just handle handle theirs

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

We haven't defended the three very well the last few games. Killing us.

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

BME_Buckeye's picture

Come on refs let them play. I don't care about fouls but this is taking away the continuity of the game. 

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

 

PhillyBuckeye27's picture

WHY OH WHY does Lenzelle take SO MANY STUPID SHOTS?????  WHY?????  WHY??????

WolverineKiller's picture

I cheer loudly when Lenzelle scores because I never expect the ball to actually go in.  Even when we was on fire a week ago and went 6 for 6 from the floor.

Just Win.

PhillyBuckeye27's picture

He has one or two great games a year - that 6 for 6 game was probably it for the yr.  He should change his name to Lenzelle "the brick" Smith Jr.

dubjayfootball90's picture

my heart races everytime thompson jumps

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

TLB's picture

Is this the same crew that called nothing in yesterdays Wisky vs Hun game?

Kevbo714's picture

That shot by DT was SO pretty...

Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...

osubuckeye4life's picture

Andrew Gantz (Centerville, OH) no. 6 kicker in the nation was going to walk on at Tenn and now he is going to walk on at tOSU. They are going to try him at punter.

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Wow

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

bergy22's picture

C'mon really? grab the ball

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Indiana is traveling all over the place. Zoeller shuffles his feet every time.

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

PhillyBuckeye27's picture

Mr. Burke is not the best player in the Big 10 - Mr. Olidipo is!

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

I like Olidipo, but he disappears for stretches. Burke is much more consistant.

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

dubjayfootball90's picture

cant believe no one went for the rebound and oladipo just took it right down our throats

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

Tim's picture

it's fun how we don't get calls whether we're at home or not but indiana gets calls on the road against us.

dubjayfootball90's picture

now that is determination from thomas

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

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Amazing Thomas!

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

What are you DOING lenzelle? Jesus

Edit: God I hate Tom Crean

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

bergy22's picture

Lenzelle get your head on straight. Jr in college and fouls with less than 10 to go in the half to give them two. Dumb

WolverineKiller's picture

So frustrating.

Just Win.

TLB's picture

Officials over worked
Mike Eades 11 games in 13 days
Steretore 10 games in 13 days
TOM Eades 9 in 13...usually works big 12, did KU-Okla yesterday
a lot of travel involved

PhillyBuckeye27's picture

First five mins of the 2nd half will determine if we are playing to stay in the race or if we are settling for a first round bye in the big ten tourney.  I can't believe I have to watch Lenzelle for another year - so disappointing!

bergy22's picture

I was expecting a jump in play from him but haven't seen it all year in important games.

RedStorm45's picture

Classy move by the Hoosiers to bail on the national anthem.

Bob knight wins the day though.

We are making some dumb plays.

TLB's picture

is that the most points in a half we've allowed this year?

dubjayfootball90's picture

Still in respectable position, but we gotta step it up. These calls are killing us

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

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Amir is hacking today

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

TLB's picture

Clark is frustrated by our stupidity

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

GTF off the floor Crean! God I hate Tom Crean.

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

johnblairgobucks's picture

A face only a mother could love

dubjayfootball90's picture

these calls are KILLING us!!!

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

dubjayfootball90's picture

oh my god, on ravanel now? seriously?

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

TLB's picture

fouls are 14-8

bergy22's picture

Seriously? I know Zeller is the player of the year but holy smokes at least make him earn it.

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

The refs are completely ignoring contact on our end. Craft and Ravenel were both hacked

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

rdubs's picture

Dumb reach by Craft with 2.

TLB's picture

Dumb is how we play

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Finally a call on a drive!

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

dubjayfootball90's picture

yea seriously, finally a foul for us. Fans are correct for cheering that, jeez

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

Tim's picture

foul on indiana yayyyyyy!

dubjayfootball90's picture

get these shots DT!!!

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

TLB's picture

lol......their blog complaining about officials.
this is why I hate IU

Tim's picture

crean should get a technical for being on the court constantly.

rdubs's picture

All coaches are on the court constantly, he is just more obnoxious.

Tim's picture

fair enough, but crean is more annoying than anyone, even bo ryan.

osubuckeye4life's picture

I think Crean should have a shock colllar that goes off when he steps on the court.
 
 

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Fucking defense is terrible on the perimeter

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

dubjayfootball90's picture

unravelling a bit now, settle down and put sh*t in line... come on now, we have been on runs before, start it on the D side, lets go!

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

TLB's picture

D has no answer when they call it this close.

PhillyBuckeye27's picture

Tme get the bus warmed up - the phat lady is harmonizing in the back.....I thought we would have a better defenzive effort today - we are chasing after Olidipo like we want his autograph.  Dude is making us look just plain silly!

dubjayfootball90's picture

now that is a kind rim

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

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

I'd like to see more of Ross in this game and less of Lenzelle

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

dubjayfootball90's picture

this is starting to get out of control

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

TLB's picture

every team in the B1G has guys whose only job is to hit threes.....except 1

rdubs's picture

I am not sure PSU has any guys on their team... 

rdubs's picture

We have no transition offense or defense right now.

Tim's picture

Watching Jordan Hulls get run over makes me happy.

dubjayfootball90's picture

we need these shots, both of them

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

dubjayfootball90's picture

figures

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

TLB's picture

smarter and more athletic than us

TLB's picture

so frustrated right now

dubjayfootball90's picture

FU Tom Crean!!!!

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

BSTP DeCon's picture

Ugly game. Maybe next year we will be good again and not NIT bound. At least we wrestle Penn State so hopefully one of my Buckeyes team puts me in a better mood.

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

We are shooting terrible today. Lenzelle and Thompson are 3/11 Thomas is 5/14

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

TLB's picture

Someone said it earlier.  We are now just playing for a 1st round by in the B1G tourney

bergy22's picture

its just IUs day. How does that ball get to Oliadipo. Dumb

dubjayfootball90's picture

oladipo has 21 points already, wow, and an air ball... not good right now

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

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

As a team the buckeyes are shooting 36% at home today. Indiana is shooting over %50. that's the story folks

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

johnblairgobucks's picture

I believe this game is in the bag, folks.  Buckeyes are over-matched today. Won't be adding anymore images of Tom Crean's annoying face to my brain, today. 
Hope I don't miss an epic comeback.

dubjayfootball90's picture

with all due respect, i hope an epic comeback does occur, haha. One can only hope after seeing what we have all seen so far in this game

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

TLB's picture

The way games are called in Bloomington and our basketball stupidity, they'll beat us by 30 over there.

Baroclinicity's picture

Slowly slipping away... tough to watch.

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

dubjayfootball90's picture

yay, another foul, finally

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

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Buckeyes will make a run, but I'm not sure it will be enough. Don't count us out yet with 10 min to go.

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

TLB's picture

hope you are right, but I dont see it

bergy22's picture

didn't need that but man that was a cheap cheap call on Scott

bergy22's picture

What the hell thomas? where is his head at?

dubjayfootball90's picture

Amir did not even jump for that ball that DT missed, just raised his hand.... WTF!!! YOU ARE close to 7'0" tall, JUMP!!!!

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

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Tough to win when your opponent shoots this well.

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

BSTP DeCon's picture

Lozzy defense goes hand and hand with an opposing team shooting well. I stopped counting after 17 open looks.

TLB's picture

This team is so hard to figure.
Defense can carry them to the Sweet 16, maybe elite 8, or they could be out very early.

dubjayfootball90's picture

DT!!! now play some good D, lets GO!!!

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

dubjayfootball90's picture

ugh, I was saying "slow it down, slow it down!" then we turn it over.... DAMNIT!!

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

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Buckeyes have ten TOs and they have been at critical moments.

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Olidipo/Zeller/Watford are a combined 20/29. Wow

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

dubjayfootball90's picture

these are very quick whistles man, his hands did come down a bit, but that could have gone either way. let em play a bit

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

Danify's picture

You are kidding!?!?! It's Cody Zeller ... breathing on him will cause a foul.

dubjayfootball90's picture

haha true

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

dubjayfootball90's picture

these 3-point shots are daggers man

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

TLB's picture

every team has a 3 point guy, but us

frustratedbuckeye's picture

Can someone explain to me why indiana seems to consistently get open looks from 3 and we struggle to get any.  Is it the presence of Zeller?
 

BSTP DeCon's picture

Definitely a little bit of Zeller and a little bit of Matta failing to make any game time changes.

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Indiana won't shoot this well again for the rest of the year

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

TLB's picture

I bet they do one more time

frustratedbuckeye's picture

Like Michigan on Tuesday? 
 

TLB's picture

could be frightening

bergy22's picture

IU has got every 50/50 ball today and thats been a huge difference in the game.

Danify's picture

And it doesnt help every 50 / 50 ball seems to be going Indiana by lucky balls
 

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

I'm blaming this impending loss on Illinois. Obviously we needed to play much better, but Indiana was on a mission today. They were smarting after that loss. Tough for OSU to play scUM and Indiana after losses.

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

dubjayfootball90's picture

rough game man, but hell, we needed a good beating to get us back on track

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

I_Run_The_Dave's picture

Craaaft!  Maybe too little, too late, but Craaaaft!!!

bergy22's picture

The calls have been so ticky tack at one end and we have to get bloodied to draw one. AND we are at HOME

Mikefletcher24's picture

That's all heart by #4

Knarcisi's picture

Watching IU gives you a glimpse of howndangerousnyoubarevwhen the 5 on the floor can score any time from anywhere. Scoring is a demand for them, and D is a given. Scoring is a luxury for us, with D as a must and a focus. 

bergy22's picture

Wow these refs can suck it. That is all. Craft showed up, not sure everyone else did.

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Indiana's three best players (Zeller,Olidipo,Watford) are currently 22/32. Killed us.

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

dubjayfootball90's picture

no 'T'? How is that not a 'T'? of course not of Indiana, just a stern 'talking to'....

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

dubjayfootball90's picture

ugh, terrible way to end. good game IU, frustrating.... Damnit I hate Tom Crean

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

bergy22's picture

Where has Lenzelle been all year? Start Ross now?

TLB's picture

Thompson is the guy.  Missed early dunk, ends with 4 points

PhillyBuckeye27's picture

Indiana is the clear cut fave to win the Nat C - at least from what I have seen and certainly if they can keep this up for the next 6 weeks.  Oh well - we will still have a decent Big 10 season at 12-6.  Win a game or two in the Big Ten tourney and then it all depends on seeding - sweet 16 is about it - MAYBE final 8 if we can catch lightning in a bottle and play like we did against scUM!
Next yr is going to be tough to watch - we simply aren't very good.  Matta needs to get some fresh kids cause unless Thompson, Scott and Williams have incredible offseasons then winning 20 next yr may actually be quite challenging.  Who is going to score?????  And we will have to live w/ another season of Lenzele wasting a D1 scholly.....frightening.....
I wish we could go back to when the Amish and scUM sucked at football and IU sucked at hoops - things were so much more tolerable then.....
