PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Well, I'm thankful for the bye...Michigan is already out before we've tipped off. Let's get out to a strong start! Go Bucks!
Also like our boys will get in bed at a decent hour before Sats game.
I NEED a link for tonight. Don't have Big Ten Net
October 20th: National Kenneth Guiton Day
Duuuude. How do you not have BTN?
I live in Southern California and I have Time Warner. I have to go to my girlfriends house to watch all the BTN games (she just loves that), but I can't make it there this afternoon. FirstRow has nothing so far :/
i feel for you man... luckily we're covered in the DC area. Good luck and go bucks!
Thads 4-0 against braskie. Lets push it to 5.
Nothing like dancing on the field in 02...
Feelin really good about how the Buckeyes have been playing so it would be great to see them jump out early. Love that scUM went down already.
I want to see this team come out focused and playing hair-on-fire defense. Very interested to see if the layoff has changed their attitude it all. I don't think it has but I want to see them playing with the urgency of one-and-done basketball.
I hope we don't come out asleep.
wouldn't surprise me... everything written this week has been about Matta's relaxed approach to the B1G tourney, but we'll see.
I guess I called that one, Nebraska may not be loaded in terms of talent. However, they are a very well coached team with a lot of heart and will beat us if we don't show up.
I can't believe how small the crowd looks on TV. Figured at least OSU fans would be on time. Wish thing was in Indy where it belongs.
Radio link even? This is so frustrating.
Is it just me or does Thompson always hit the first three.
Not to be a hater but I can't believe Smith Jr. got props for his stats against Nebraska. Considering how he didn't show up in games against quality opponents I'm not sure Matta has a good argument for him being the most underrated player in the country.
He is the 2nd leading scorer on a team that really needs scorers.
how is Amir Williams still starting? Kid is so soft.
Amir losing the ball again?
Thad is heated.
Lol Thad getting pissed. I would be too after seeing this team with their slow starts game after game. As a fan, you come to expect it. I think it's just an OSU thing. The football team does it too
Matta getting hot early. He needs to spend more time in Amir's face.
Scott comes in -- game over.
it would be nice if nebraska would stop making shots they have no business making
seriously, stick to the script 'braska!
We should start Scott in the smaller lineup, and just run the sh*t out of everybody.
"You win with people." - Woody Hayes
Lol buckeyes doin what the buckeyes do best -- slow starts
I hate living in Georgia this freaking blows
we need scott out there
This stream is down right now but hoping it my be up soon
YES THANK YOU
you are a savior
vipbox seems to be back up for those who can't get BTN
a horrible start to the game though
Hopefully Ohio State gets their head out from their asses in the second half.
Not good so far but the cornheads are shooting lights out and that wont last long. Our guys look sluggish and disinterested.
Our honor Defend!
Seriously is anyone else tired of these typical lackadaisical starts
man, real upset my GF's house does not have BTN, I raced out of PGH to get here, and now I cant watch, ahhhh
YESSS stream is online
If that drops, 1480 AM out of Cincinnati always streams Football and Basketball games http://www.oldies1480.net/
Would upvote you 5x if possible. I tried the Dispatch buy a game (97.1FM) and it kept giving me the regular season buy at $14.60 when I picked the first game big 10 tourney link. They might want to test something they put out there, duh!
Craft getting completely outplayed
Request for a moratorium on posters saying that this basketball team has "figured it out" or "put it all together" or "is peaking at the right time" or any of that nonsense. Game-to-game momentum doesn't exist.
How many travels for Ross today lol
I do like Nebraska's coach. He's just way too nice for a basketball coach. It's creepy.
Chicago does not have the same special feel as Indy..
agreed, this environment kind of stinks so far except for the Michigan/Wisconsin game
Yeah, but most of the other games sucked...so I'm not surprised.
I think that in situations like this, where the stadium is 3/4 empty they should allow the people in the cheap seats to move down to the lower level. It will make the games more exciting.
Defensive intensity has increased. Sheesh.
Class of 2010.
so whats up right now? Neb shooting lights out? sloppy play?
It was both...but OSU is now on a 10-0 run
getting back on track now
That's more freaking like it...
Scott makes the difference.
Told you Shannon is key!!
There you go buckeyes.... Craft and Scott are a real tandem on defense.
Ohio State's band SLAUGHTERED Michigan's band. If this were a football game, it would have been Florida State vs. Savannah State. - SB Nation following OSU vs. UM 2012
ok watching on Gamecast, see the buckeyes coming back and taking the lead now, very good to see
Woo just look at that crowd.
Scott is the difference maker on defense
even at that nebraska hit 2 or 3 shots at the last second on the shot clock to start the game out.....that's tough
Is it safe to say this team scores more when Scott is on the floor? I think so.
Definetly, he's a difference maker!
I think it's safe to say that it's not a coincidence that we play much better without Williams or Lenzelle on the floor. And with Scott plus Craft out there
Good D Craft
...and I hate to say it but Amir is way too passive.
You're being too kind.
I know this is kinda harsh, but #32 for Nebraska reminds of #55 on the Beavers from Teen Wolf:
I was thinking the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.
wow, I looked him up, and Almeida (#32) is listed as 6'11'', 314 lbs.!
He should be playing OT for the Cornhuskers.
yeah...you know he's gotta have at least decent feet/some quickness for his size, if he's playing D1 Hoops
Seriously dude, I'm less concerned about you being harsh and more concerned about the fact you ever watched Teen Wolf.
Teen Wolf...with "Styles"!
Great 80s movie. Not in my top 5, but still a nostalgic movie.
Lenzelle 0/3. Shocker.
we are a better team with Scott on the floor. No doubt.
....annnnnnnnd I think Matta has noticed.
Why take that shot?
Great hustle Ravs... that's a play Amir would not make
I dunno what Amir's deal is but I'm not waiting for him to get better this year anymore. He is below mediocre.
Can someone explain to me how the refs determine who gets the ball on those 50/50s on the ground. Like it seemed to me that Rav had possession
Ref called a jump ball. There's an alternating possession arrow to determine who gets it.
Is this in a high school gym?
The United Center, where the Bulls play. The problem is, here in Chicago, the game's tipoff was 5:30 CST and people are still at work. I'm suspecting the games tomorrow and Sunday have a fuller, livelier crowd.
Yeah, that was sarcasm.
Argyle, please tell me that is a reference to Bravehart
Lenzelle you are so bad!!
OSU will win by a final score of 72-53.
Not far off at all sir
nice prediction......was watching real close at the end to see if you'd predict it perfectly
It's so quiet i can hear the coaches shouting out plays and the players chatting. Listen for some awesome cussing if things get tense later. I always love it when cuss words get broadcasted.
Cuss words on tv ? Why you &$(@*#&$!!!! ;)
They should have kept this in Indianapolis
Why is Scott out?
The 2012 National Champions.
Zone defense = us sucking. Like always.
Even will Williams gets fouled he looks weak. I just don't understand Matta starting him, other than he just doesn't have anyone else.
Amir! standing way too high, gave away the low inside shoulder & leverage to Ubel there
Williams' favorite shot is the "Fling it into the stands and hope they call a foul". He does it at least once a game.
This is an honest question: is it safe to call Amir a bust and is it possible that we see a transfer from him?
Paul Keels "Williams has been victimized by the small lineup". No, we HAVE a small lineup because of him and the other big's.
I gotta say, Shannon Scott is going to be a beast by the time he leaves C-bus. He's grown so much this year.
Love DeShaun but that wasn't a foul
It's like this staff just says ehhh screw it when opponents throw up a zone.
Bad call. Feel bad for Nebraska they were really hanging in there and this just deflates the momentum going into half time. I still want us to win, but I almost feel bad for corn nation like your ugly friend who is really nice but can't ever find a date.
my god that was a boring half
Who here is hoping Matta goes purple at the half in the locker room? (except at Thomas)
Will Tim Miles tweet this halftime?
Glad to be up by 5 at the half. Ugly first half. Thad's gotta get them in gear for the second half. Can't come out slow again like they did to start the game.
Dang BTN; I know we are up five but how we are looking??
"Fate has cards that it don't want to show"
Started out sleep walking because, lets face it, this is Nebraska. Went down by 8. Woke up. Now we're up by 5. Amir is weak under the basket. Deshawn is scoring points. Shannon Scott continues to impress. Ravenel is giving A+ effort and making some plays. Craft is white and has rosy cheeks. Just another day in Buckeye land.
...in other news...The photoshop Phriday is so, so cool. I am having serious problems keeping my laughter quiet at work. 'Cause, well, they actually expect me to...uh... work. It's better than a certain Buckfan weekly icon update which has tons of really funny stuff in it too. Thanks everyone!
Ugh. I'm missing the game. Appreciate the updates here. Trying to follow on my phone.
And Tim Miles tweets at halftime again!
I've been waiting for that Dunk since the game started. Thanks Sam!
Is Trey McDonald really that bad? I know he hasn't gotten many minutes, but jeez Amir doesn't like he has either.
Don't give up... Don't ever give up.
We need a post player bad.
A wise timeout by brasky.
23-34 now. OSU running wild on them out of half time. Nice turnover forced by Craft.
Nice! Thanks woody. Hit the refresh and poof we score a flurry.
Nebraska went zone which was throwing us off. Great half time adjustments from Matta and company.
Lob baby! Sam almost jumped out of the stadium.
39-23 Way to go Sam with dunk & 3
Taking over now, thank you.
39-23. This is getting ugly now.
"A NERF hoop basket for Sam Thompson."
I like it.
Later boys; my wife just found it on Sirius, going out to listen to it in the car. Thanks for the updates.
I'm liking that Sam Thompson seems to be improving the last 2 months. Will need that to continue in the big dance.
Ya know why I love Q? He makes open shots.
This game makes me wanna sleep. I hope we get Sparty next. That will be an excellent game.
Michigan and the player of the year are out...love to see them lose...lets hope they get whacked early in the tournament ...OH
I was busy watching dook suck, good to see OSU has gotten into a groove now
Ross En Fuego
Ross!! Three in a row! He's on fire now!
50-28 Way to go Q 8 in a row
So no foot off the gas here, do you think Matta is thinking a #1 seed if we can beat Sparty and Indy?
If we get past those two I think it's a real possibility.
Ubel just dragon kicked evan ravenel.
Shannon steal and points 52
Since it was 15-8, Ohio State has outscored Nebraska 46 to13.
"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.
OK, this is officially getting out of hand.
We are on fire. I can see this even from my phone...lol.
De Valle in....keeping up the D
Loved seeing the 92% FG stat pop up!
Trey McDonald in...let's go
I hope McDonald just tears it up so Matta is forced to get him more PT
Does anyone know what that patch is that Ross always wears on his shoulder? It looks like a nicotine patch or something.
They're usually used to cover an offensive tattoo
Ah ok. Thanks
That didn't take long; it's always a hoot to hear the other teams announcers sulking when we are kicking their a--! I do have to give them credit; they said that OSU has the model program for the Huskers to follow.
Ref seems to be allergic to calling fouls on Neb
Guys are getting sloppy.
I had to hop back on and ask for a GIF of the Nebraska player getting sniped (tripped by nothing) at half court. I could not stop laughing.
+1 I laughed out loud after watching him get up that high for the alley-op and then run back down the court and trip
Is me or shouldn't be resting DT not the rest of our starters?
I agree, I think this is Thad trying to help Deshaun keep his stats up and make a push for Wooden POY.
8-0 run for Neb...and a turnover
Ok pull the starters...
Definitely stat-patting time.
See you all later. I hope to be here for the Bucks next game against the Sparty/Iowa winner. So I'll see you for the Sparty game. ;)
66-47 with 3 to go...let's close this out strong
Empty the bench Coach
Yep, time to start getting ready for tomorrow. Good second half to close it out after a really slow start.
Slam Thompson with a strong Chicago showing.
Wow, we finally broke 70.
Final 71-50....Nice 2nd Half!!
Good second half. Taking into account this game, and the five game win streak to end the season OSU is playing their best B-ball of the season imho. Hopefully it will be a good March.
72-53....pretty close to 71-50
Craft is such a Buckeye that he has learned to force his rosy cheeks into Block Os!
All chalk in the semis so far.
Slam Thompson with 19 and several memorable slams....Congrats hometown boy!!!
Maryland is up on Duke right now.
I like to believe that my best hits border on felonious assault.
Maryland beats Duke 83-74
