D Thomas needs to go off on these fools tonigiht. Lesssssgo!

Ramzy Nasrallah's picture

I honestly can't tell if we actually bothered to photoshop Crean's face over Tom Arnold's or if we just used the picture as is. 

dbit's picture

Tom Crean's face has been on the front page today too many times for my taste.

Jason Priestas's picture

Thought it was important to increase your urge to want to punch something throughout the day. Now, you're ready for the game.

Dr. House's picture

god i hate tom crean. go buckeyes please curb stomp iu tonight

thatlillefty's picture

Same lineup: Craft, Zelle, Thompson, DeShaun & Amir
personally, i'd like to see Ravs get the nod but they'll split time.
Get Scott on the floor so Craft and Scott can run the 1/2. If Z struggles early, let's see what Thompson and Q can do. We need offense tonight!

Chris Lauderback's picture

Teddy Valentine in the house....with Wymer and Steratore. 

Dr. House's picture

so the buckeyes already start with one foul a piece 

Optimistic Buckeye Pessimist's picture

No. Amir starts with 3 and ravenel has fouled out. 

Read my entire screen name....

thatlillefty's picture

Valentine is a joke... drives me crazy he gets so many primetime games

Jack Fu's picture

Oh shit. I may not watch.

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Can we get this weak SEC game off the screen!?!? I'm here for the best basketball in the country! B1G! B1G! B1G!

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

Optimistic Buckeye Pessimist's picture

Mizzo up by 30. Any chance we can get to the buckeye game?

Read my entire screen name....

AngelHeartsBuckeyes's picture

I bet Fox1 would switch over to the Buckeye game....

Buckeye born and bred. Buckeye til I'm dead.

dubjayfootball90's picture

I can't believe they still got this Crappy ass mizzou game on Espn. Wtf

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

RollBucks's picture

Has the game started yet?

Roll with it.

Optimistic Buckeye Pessimist's picture

Take a freaking knee and run the time out

Read my entire screen name....

RollBucks's picture

Stop fouling!
 

Roll with it.

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

I love how it says the tip is at 9:10

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

Optimistic Buckeye Pessimist's picture

We are getting trolled hard

Read my entire screen name....

Dr. House's picture

assembly hall is such a terrible venue  

Chris Lauderback's picture

So the IU/OSU is underway. I hope Mizzou hangs on to this 31 point lead. 

jeremytwoface's picture

No one wants to watch the last 30 seconds of this... not even Missouri fans

The first man gets the ((((Oyster)))), the second man gets the shell.

RollBucks's picture

Well if we can't see the start of the game it looks like we might get to see a fight

Roll with it.

TLB's picture

My eyes are bleeding

Chris Lauderback's picture

Oladipo with an early foul

Knarcisi's picture

Yeah, how bout turn off a 32 point blowout with 10 sec. 

dubjayfootball90's picture

This is unbelievable. Arkansas took s freaking timeout. And it just went taway. Haha. Just ran the time off anyway. Nice. LETS GO BUCKEYES

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

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Eww ESPN2 is playing the suck fest that is "Fab Five: excuses as to why we didn't win it all"

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

TLB's picture

I ever mention how much dislike I have for IU?
 

Dr. House's picture

same here its 1.M and 1a is IU screw them both

Kevbo714's picture

Craft is going to have to be huge tonight...

Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...

Kevbo714's picture

So proud of all of our boys!

Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...

RollBucks's picture

Nice Crafty. Looks like we are getting after it on d tonight
 

Roll with it.

TLB's picture

John Saunders is not a fan of tOSU.

Dr. House's picture

to beat IU you have to make sure they don't get on the fast break. 

jeremytwoface's picture

Play it again Sam!

The first man gets the ((((Oyster)))), the second man gets the shell.

AngelHeartsBuckeyes's picture

ESPN was just trolling Ezekiel with all that Mizzou coverage.

Buckeye born and bred. Buckeye til I'm dead.

ILbuckeyes's picture

this is what im saying, he needs confidence!!!

RollBucks's picture

Thattaboy Thompson

Roll with it.

Knarcisi's picture

Gonna rename Slam "silk". 

RollBucks's picture

Crappy, crappy call. 

Roll with it.

oregonianbuckeye's picture

Jordan Hulls beats the crap out of Thompson that whole possession and they call that on Sam. Shenanigans. 

ILbuckeyes's picture

While I agree Hulls was playing rough, what Sam did was dumb and blatant. Gotta be smart

oregonianbuckeye's picture

I hate it when refs treat guys differently based on size. If Rav did that in the post on Zeller it would be a foul every time.

Kevbo714's picture

I would say that I am happy with our shooting so far, lol... 3 nothing but nets

Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...

TLB's picture

Have to know going in we will get no calls.

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Tom Cretin

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

Knarcisi's picture

Gotta stay up on D and get this farmhand crowd out of it. 

WolverineKiller's picture

Good Evening Fans,  cautiously optimistic at this point...Go Bucks!

Just Win.

RollBucks's picture

Oh good a human interest piece on Indiana 

Roll with it.

thatlillefty's picture

Slammy T droppin buckets!

Valentine senses camera. 

ILbuckeyes's picture

Steratore is a good ref, i like him

Kevbo714's picture

Tom Crean's favorite band is Creed.  -source unconfirmed

Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...

brandonbauer87's picture

This a whole new Slam. I like it. 

Knarcisi's picture

Good transition D. Jus lost that back door. 

ILbuckeyes's picture

Rebound.  DT, dont start taking dumb shots

Knarcisi's picture

Yep. Rushed that last one. 

WolverineKiller's picture

Breakout Season Mr. Thompson.  Well played sir, well played.

Just Win.

TLB's picture

Dakich is great

Dr. House's picture

SAID NO ONE EVER

BucksfanXC's picture

I agree with you but I far fingered a dv. Sorry ill get you back x2 later

“Any time you give a man something he doesn't earn, you cheapen him. Our kids earn what they get, and that includes respect.”  - Woody

RollBucks's picture

Wow, Thompson is a beast today! And Dakich is adues hedues he

Roll with it.

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

That's BS! Bob Knight just threw a chair.

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

ILbuckeyes's picture

Gotta be strong downlow

brandonbauer87's picture

I don't think Shannon Scott likes the bright lights. 

Knarcisi's picture

Get Scott off the floor if he can't watch the shot clock. 

dubjayfootball90's picture

Damn shot clock

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

oregonianbuckeye's picture

Need to get on the boards defensively. Other than that, we look pretty good.

RollBucks's picture

That whole possession was a disaster, it wasn't just Scott. LQ didn't do him any favors

Roll with it.

Knarcisi's picture

Slam off and those 2 on?

Kevbo714's picture

Dakich has free reign to just roam around during time outs...

Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...

thatlillefty's picture

what the fuck is that about?... i don't understand his fans

thatlillefty's picture

Get Slam back in the game

Kevbo714's picture

There we go!

Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...

awydontucry's picture

Pretty good O... NOT... REBOUND FOR THE LOVE OF GOD

Jugdish's picture

Ravenel is key tonight. His rebounding is a must.

Remember to get your wolverine spayed or neutered. TBDBITL

Babooshska

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

WolverineKiller's picture

Love the announcers giggling before Sam Thompson dunks.

Just Win.

BuckNutInAnnArbor's picture

Nice! Get their best guy in foul trouble early!

"...but then again 'Michigan' and 'huge mistake' are synonymous so that shouldn't have been much of a surprise to anybody."  - Mark Titus

UrbanCulture's picture

I am thankful for every rebound we get

TLB's picture

jackasses boo every whistle against them

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Shannon Scott has an excellent A/TO ratio. However he can't shoot worth a lick

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

thatlillefty's picture

sup with the Slammy!

Jugdish's picture

Scott leads in bricks. 

Remember to get your wolverine spayed or neutered. TBDBITL

thatlillefty's picture

Scott drawing fouls tho

brandonbauer87's picture

I love this team when the effort is like this. 

WolverineKiller's picture

Agreed, I really wish DT wouldn't force the issue though

Just Win.

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Da fuhx?

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

RollBucks's picture

Good point! Ha

Roll with it.

Kevbo714's picture

Nice tip, DT... Also, I would like it if you came back to play for the Buckeyes next year.  K, thanks

Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...

ILbuckeyes's picture

The more i see outta sam thompson, the less Im worried for next year

brandonbauer87's picture

Amir gets called for more 50/50 calls than anyone I've ever seen. Dude just has terrible luck. 

thatlillefty's picture

him and Ravs... it's that big man strength which you knock someone for position and it's a foul

RollBucks's picture

He just looks so clumsy out there. It always looks like he is doing something wrong when he is never the aggressor.

Roll with it.

oregonianbuckeye's picture

I've got a feeling we're going to need Trey some this game. Hopefully he steps up.

oregonianbuckeye's picture

A question to Isaiah Thomas about rebuilding a program when it is down. Wow. I'm speechless.

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

IU '73-'93 - 11 B1G titles. '94-2013 - 2 titles

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

Kevbo714's picture

Up vote for stats!

Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...

dubjayfootball90's picture

This is gonna be a great game man

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

thatlillefty's picture

Starting line up - sub Z for Scott...
Sammy T is hot right now. Let's ride that out.

TLB's picture

everyone hits threes but us

TLB's picture

uh oh.............gotta avoid the runs

WolverineKiller's picture

WE HAVE TO DO SOMETHING WITH ZELLER AND OLANDEEEEEPOOOO ON THE BENCH

Just Win.

AngelHeartsBuckeyes's picture

Thomas rushed that shot at the very end of his release.

Buckeye born and bred. Buckeye til I'm dead.

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Wanna hear a joke? Olidipo has been compared to Michael Jordan.

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

Jack Fu's picture

TV Ted, making his presence felt...

RollBucks's picture

Valentine there again to crush the bucks momentum

Roll with it.

thatlillefty's picture

love you Ravs but that's a flop

WolverineKiller's picture

Jent showing off with Sam Thompson tonight.  The jumper is looking good.

Just Win.

brandonbauer87's picture

For every silky Slam jumper there's a nasty Craft jumper. Jent can't get all the accolades and no criticism.

TLB's picture

um, Kentucky lost to Ark, which just lost to Mizzu by over 30..........but they'll get in

BucksfanXC's picture

I like what I see so far. Just keep it close into halftime

“Any time you give a man something he doesn't earn, you cheapen him. Our kids earn what they get, and that includes respect.”  - Woody

oregonianbuckeye's picture

How is that a foul on the shot?

RollBucks's picture

Agreed, I hate the call when the offensive player has no idea what he is doing and just gets super aggressive. So if I run into you really hard and spin it is a foul on you?

Roll with it.

AngelHeartsBuckeyes's picture

The Basketball Gods are still angry with us apparently.
We can't get balls to drop for some reason. Not sure the best vet can fix that for us.

Buckeye born and bred. Buckeye til I'm dead.

oregonianbuckeye's picture

Not sure why Q or L isn't posting up. Jordan Hulls is guarding one of them.

NCBuck1's picture

That is spot on. Thats where we are the weakest...exploiting the mismatch.

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Shannon Scott is 6th in the nation in assist to TO ratio. He plays just under 20 min a game.

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

RollBucks's picture

Can anyone convince LQ to just catch and shoot too? No dribbling just catch and shoot

Roll with it.

ih8rolltyde's picture

I'm not always right,

But when I'm right, its usually Slam Thompson.

****igan smells like old water that hot dogs were boiled in.  FACT

TLB's picture

those four fouls are their only fouls.  we have 7

Jack Fu's picture

Oladipo hasn't scored and we're still losing. That's not good.

Kevbo714's picture

Nice transition there!

Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...

73buckeye's picture

Anybody else tired of Trico and Dakich? Time to mute ESPN and go to 97.1.

ernie

RollBucks's picture

I never get tired of Tirico, Dakich can be tiresome

Roll with it.

TLB's picture

not a Trico fan

Dr. House's picture

im not a fan of either

brandonbauer87's picture

I'll take Tirico and Dakich over Vitale and anybody. 

Dr. House's picture

 will take the mute button over both

brandonbauer87's picture

You'd rather listen to Keels call people by the wrong name?

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Q the dude

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

Kevbo714's picture

Ross hit the circle button on that one after holding down turbo

Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...

oregonianbuckeye's picture

Love going small here. Nice adjustment by Matta.

TLB's picture

needed to make hay with those two on the bench and have gotten nothing.

RollBucks's picture

Umm over the back?

Roll with it.

jeremytwoface's picture

AND 1!

The first man gets the ((((Oyster)))), the second man gets the shell.

dubjayfootball90's picture

We need to sink a three. But I will settle for the old fashioned three point play

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

WolverineKiller's picture

Loving this first half effort.  They showed up to play.

Just Win.

Haybucks's picture

brandonbauer87's picture

This small lineup could be deadly going forward. We're running Indiana out of the gym. 

wibuckeye's picture

Nice half so far. 

WIBUCKEYE

dubjayfootball90's picture

Nice. Finish the half off strong. Good defense to a score. Lets get this 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

A very solid half
Hopefully they can keep it up when Zeller and Oladipo come back

RollBucks's picture

Dakich needs some eye drops or something.

Roll with it.

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

OSU is 7th in the B1G in FT%, yet 4th in FG%

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

UrbanCulture's picture

Even though we are leading at half, we still need to make adjustments in order to pull this win out

UrbanCulture's picture

Another fruitless late half possession. nothing new

Son of a Vondruke's picture

We have to be the worst team at setting up a play to end a half

Then I met some friends for a beer. We went to a Bodeans concert. And son of a Vondruke if I didn't leave him at the concert hall.

buckeye4life050233's picture

it was actually a pretty good play Q just didn't knock down the 3......it was an open look.....

thatlillefty's picture

Craft is the man... just look at SScott to see how is energy rubs off

TLB's picture

up 3.  good job on D.  avoided the 10 point runs.  

dubjayfootball90's picture

Damnit. These three pointers have to start dropping sooner or later

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 are 3rd in theB1G in 3-point shooting. 36%

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

brandonbauer87's picture

I wonder what our opponent 3pt% is for the season. 

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

We are 7thin the B1G. Give up 33%

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

TLB's picture

Fouls were 9-5 

oregonianbuckeye's picture

Yeah, Zeller and Victor have 2, but so do Thompson, Rav and Amir. We may need Trey to step up if our bigs continue to foul Zeller like he's a whack a mole.

TLB's picture

Amir has 3, I think.
Maybe stepping on that ball made him even more immobile

Ohio1St81's picture

"Shannon was doing great getting his hands on balls." I may have graduated on paper but I'm still 20 mentally. 

brandonbauer87's picture

He's in their heads....and pants

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

OSU is 3rd in total B1G attendance behind UW and IU.

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

Kevbo714's picture

I like the effort, so far.  Sam is playing really well.  I really liked the small line up at the end of the half, as it looked like the Bucks could beat them on transition almost with ease.  I also drive a Pontiac...

Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...

RollBucks's picture

I DRIVE A DODGE STRATUS, YOU WILL RESPECT ME!

Roll with it.

Kevbo714's picture

That commercial on ESPN still didn't answer what a Hoosier is...

Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...

johnblairgobucks's picture

I always thought this was a Hoosier:

thatlillefty's picture

Lesss get Slammy T back on the floor. He was making big impacts early first half.
Zelle hasn't done much (not saying he won't), so let's ride Slam and Q for now.

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Only one player in the B1G averages a double-double. Anyone got it?

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

thatlillefty's picture

dude from Minnyesota?

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Yuppp

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

Buckeye Chuck's picture

Happy to be ahead at the half; wish it was by more than 3 considering Oladipo has given them nothing and we won't be that fortunate again.
Smith needs to pretend this is Northwestern, and (please) do something.

The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.

Son of a Vondruke's picture

Wow Smith JR sure does disappear against good teams
 

Then I met some friends for a beer. We went to a Bodeans concert. And son of a Vondruke if I didn't leave him at the concert hall.

Knarcisi's picture

With Hulls guarding him ...

dubjayfootball90's picture

BACk nine now. Finish off strong and go for the share of the B1G title

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

wibuckeye's picture

1 of 6 from three, we need to be better.

WIBUCKEYE

RollBucks's picture

Illinois seems to be fading a bit too. Very winnable game coming up if we can get past Indiana.

Roll with it.

Kevbo714's picture

Almost at 50 stickers, rollbucks

Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...

RollBucks's picture

Yeah, these open threads help out a bit.

Roll with it.

Kevbo714's picture

I saw that you were relatively new, so I went back to throw you a couple as a welcome.  I am recovering from surgery so I really don't have much to accomplish, lol.  Go Bucks!

Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...

RollBucks's picture

I appreciate it. Longtime eleven warriors visitor just signed up for an account. Good luck with your recovery!

Roll with it.

Knarcisi's picture

Great close to the half. Great intensity on D. Need to maintain that energy. No relaxing and giving easy looks. These guys can shoot. 

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Expect a barnburner this half.

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

ILbuckeyes's picture

Alright, someone needs to tell DT hes hurting our offense

TLB's picture

Maybe he's just a jackass

UrbanCulture's picture

It's weird how teams shoot so well from three against us...get lenz off the court

TLB's picture

Missed 2 easy ones.........does not bode well for the half

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Twatford kills us

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

UrbanCulture's picture

glad we came with out some passion!

GABuckeye's picture

I've said it 100 time before and I'll say it again.  Why does Lenzelle Smith Jr still have a scholarship?  He is terrible!

Kevbo714's picture

And 1....?  Nope, I guess not

Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...

William's picture

Nothing Lenzelle could do there. 

b_pbucksfans's picture

Thad, can we please sit Amir the rest of the year? The team is so much better with him on the bench.

William's picture

Williams getting manhandled. 

UrbanCulture's picture

Dakich spot on with those comments

TLB's picture

fouls now 2-0 this half
11-5 total

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Zeller is getting soft in the NCAA, don't expect those calls in the NBA

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

RollBucks's picture

"Amir Williams is hurting ohio state with his personality" fantastic Dakich

Roll with it.

GABuckeye's picture

Amir Williams doesn't have a heart... what a pansy.

skid21's picture

Williams needs to sit. He really needs to think about if he is deserves his 'ship.

William's picture

what in the actual fuck? 

RollBucks's picture

Another solid point

Roll with it.

TLB's picture

here we go. have to limit the run or this will be over in a hurry

Buckeye Chuck's picture

Yeah, this is a dangerous phase here. Crowd back into it, and this is already the biggest officials-aided home court advantage in the B1G.

The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.

UrbanCulture's picture

I think this team has only out-played the other team once in the second half all season: MSU

oregonianbuckeye's picture

L Smith is getting killed defensively. Need more Scott. Smith too slow on Oladipo.

RollBucks's picture

I really liked the small lineup we had out there. It looks like Thomas could handle Zeller and we could really pressure the ball with Craft and Scott out there.

Roll with it.

oregonianbuckeye's picture

Not sure we could get a rebound with the smaller group and Zeller on the floor. Also, we don't want DT to get in foul trouble. 

RollBucks's picture

Not sure I agree. LQ is a solid rebounder and so it DT and both our guards are tough.

Roll with it.

brandonbauer87's picture

Calm down angry mob. I assure you the sky is not falling. 

kr66osu's picture

The game will be decided right here

Knarcisi's picture

IU is hot. Won't have many 5 for 5 streaks. Just hold strong here. 

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Crean get punked by the Harbaughs at Thanksgiving.

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

Knarcisi's picture

Send Tank inside. 

Kevbo714's picture

Thompson is 4-6 from the floor, Craft is 3-4, DT is 5-14

Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...

brandonbauer87's picture

Which is nothing new. 

skid21's picture

Amir needs to get walk on status. I'm so beyond being frustrated and disappointed with his complete lack of effort. At least I think it is a lack of effort, could he really be that lacking in talent?

dubjayfootball90's picture

Need a scorers touch in a second option to compliment Thomas

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

William's picture

Zeller gets every single call. What in the Hell? 

BuckNutInAnnArbor's picture

These foul calls are getting ridiculous ...

"...but then again 'Michigan' and 'huge mistake' are synonymous so that shouldn't have been much of a surprise to anybody."  - Mark Titus

A warning for Craft throwing the ball to the ref? GTFO

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

William's picture

God I hate this Indiana team. 

TLB's picture

God I hate this Indiana team.

UrbanCulture's picture

As good as craft is on defense...he really struggles with getting back-cut

xrox's picture

See if we had an inside presence, you'd have something to gripe about. It's not like they haven't been legitimate calls. I haven't seen any egregious foul calls either way.

TLB's picture

agreed.  but seems to be the norm in assembly hall

Buckeyes_Terrapins's picture

Man those Hoosiers must be really delicate.

Dr. House's picture

they really are they are going to be bounced early in the tourney this year. they are going to get a team that will just grind them down like butler did to them earlier this year

RollBucks's picture

I think the fouls on Watford are the ones that drive me the most crazy.

Roll with it.

William's picture

Holy Hell we're getting reffed. 

highwire's picture

bad fucking call

BuckNutInAnnArbor's picture

Oh come on!!

"...but then again 'Michigan' and 'huge mistake' are synonymous so that shouldn't have been much of a surprise to anybody."  - Mark Titus

Kevbo714's picture

Take the lead!

Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...

BuckNutInAnnArbor's picture

Surprised that wasn't called a foul

"...but then again 'Michigan' and 'huge mistake' are synonymous so that shouldn't have been much of a surprise to anybody."  - Mark Titus

thatlillefty's picture

That's a BS call... Craft had the board

BME_Buckeye's picture

Welcome to Assembly Hall, "The Hall of Calls". Surprise we are in this game this late into it. 

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

 

brandonbauer87's picture

Rav is having an amazing game. I'm not sure I've seen him play so controlled yet confident all year. 

oregonianbuckeye's picture

Love Scott pushing the tempo. Created a number of transition opportunities for us. And how about Rav running the floor!

thatlillefty's picture

Love the heart. No matter the outcome, I'm proud of these guys.

dubjayfootball90's picture

Damn this game is shaping up to be a classic

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

Kevbo714's picture

I am getting the same feeling...

Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...

TLB's picture

Must be a mistake

TLB's picture

didnt he fall on his own?

Buckeyes_Terrapins's picture

Oladipo fall =/= foul.

highwire's picture

IU must be full of porcelain dollies

UrbanCulture's picture

Ted valentine is historically against ohio state and we seem to always draw him when we play IU

Buckeyes_Terrapins's picture

Valentine is really awful in all respects.

William's picture

Excellent stuff by Scott. 

skid21's picture

Dan says we aren't getting screwed with the foul calls so I feel so much better. This guy is hard to take.

RedStorm45's picture

Foul differential is ridiculous.

That's a stupid swipe by Craft. That's gonna be a foul 10 times out of 10 at Assembly Hall. 11 times out of 10 if TV Ted is doing the game.

Swiping with no contact does t make a foul.

Terrible call on the charge. But man what is going on with our offensive sets last few possessions 

Roll with it.

Craft literally did not touch him…no physical contact whatsoever.  Crean really does a good job as an acting coach.

Amir got away with one there. He could have easily just taken the charge but he half-heartedly went for the block, missed, got the body, and got away with it.

What a win! Holy cow we might just keep the conference title streak alive!!!! I want to hear from the Thad Matta haters now

jaxbuckeye's picture

I am critical of Matta and still will be until he achieves relative to the classes he brings in.  The reality is this just makes up for the thrashing they took at home.  Still, was a good win.  Very impressive.

RollBucks's picture

I disagree. Coaching at the college level in my opinion is 50/50 recruiting to in game coaching. Thad is a great recruiter and then when he gets the players he wins consistently at a very high level. How in the world are we even thinking B10 championship this year? We have never had a better coach in my lifetime.

Roll with it.

jaxbuckeye's picture

Agreed about the "never had a better coach".  When I am critical, people need to put it into perspective.  Matta IS a great coach.  But people act like it's sacrilege to even consider criticizing him.  What I would like to see is us overachieve in the tournament.  I don't feel like Matta has done that.  IMO, we lose to teams we should beat.  Whether it's Siena or Kansas, I think they SHOULD have won those games.  Matta is a GREAT coach.  Just once I would like to see these great recruiting classes win a ring.  College basketball is set up the best for it.

jaxbuckeye's picture

Wow, down vote.  BIG shock.  Get a life.
