Here we go baby!!! So pumped for this game. The 3's worry me, but our perimiter defense is much better than what ND conjured up last round

captain obvious's picture

3s wont be a problem when we unleash the Craftbeast

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

Buckeye1996's picture

Alrighty! Let's go Bucks!

brandonbauer87's picture

Here's hoping we drop 100 on them.

Let's Go Bucks!  Time for some squeaky sneakers and Ravenel/Thompson dunks!

captain obvious's picture

I'm fired up for this one because of the Cyclown fans talking trash.
I might head over to their site and troll anyone know what its called?

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

brandonbauer87's picture

You're assuming they have enough fans to have a site. 

captain obvious's picture

great point

I googled "diseased field corn" and I think I found it.

An angry fan...rooting for an angry team...led by angry coaches

Idaho Helga's picture

3 of the 4 "analysts" for CBS picked us to lose.  But they're all under .500 so there ya go.

Hell yeah, let's go and weather these cyclones. Go Bucks!!!

DUNK THE DAMN BALL AMIR!!!!!!

captain obvious's picture

damnit Amir your 7ft finish strong

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

Normal Buck's picture

He's a frigging liability out there.

argyle182021's picture

Amir goes up strong he gets fouled.  

d1145fresh's picture

Gotta finish that bucket
 

captain obvious's picture

lenzelle and Amir #useless

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

Squirrel Master's picture

Amir expecting to get hacked. They need to stop rushing so much. Calm down and play ball.
and play some AGAMD!

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

RedStorm45's picture

I'd be fine if Lenzelle never suited up again.

PhillyBuckeye27's picture

I would plus 100 that statement if this site would allow me.  The good news is we only need to watch him TRY and play hoops for our Bucks for one more year.....He should be no better than the 2nd or 3rd person off the bench - behind Ross and Rav!  It's baffled me for two years how in the wide wide world he starts on this team.....we have shown in this 9 game run that we play MUCH better w/ him on the pine....

dubjayfootball90's picture

ugh, now this is looking sloppy.

DetroitBuckeye's picture

I don't like how we look early, Amir has to play better.

 
captain obvious's picture

play Ross and Scott and run

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

Hi, Rav. Nice to see you.

Amir "the creme puff" Williams - dude has hands of stone.

d1145fresh's picture

Slam I Am is getting more and more confident

buckeyewalker's picture

Has every shot outside of Amir's fail been from 18 ft? Christ.

UrbanCulture's picture

uggh...cant be missing shots in a shoot out

rhutchjr's picture

calm down. coach give them hell
 

Toledo, a good place to be FROM

captain obvious's picture

is the arm part of the ball ?
thats 2 u owe us refs

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

Jimmy's picture

I hate these early starts.

741's picture

I think Amir forgets he has hands. 

UrbanCulture's picture

DRIVE the ball vs a horrible defensive team

Idaho Helga's picture

let's not do the starting-off-slow crap we did mid season every frickin' game. Can't do that in the tourney.

johnblairgobucks's picture

ISU's Lucious keeps smiling, clapping and laughing, trying to let that fake confidence get into Craft's head.  I would love to see what a knee to the groin would do to that dude.

syllabified's picture

I like to think he's giving Craft a round of applause.

Squirrel Master's picture

Hey guys, stop rippin the team and the players! They are dominating teams and playing excellent ball as a team. Keep ripping Smith but I have seen him hit some clutch shots this year and play some excellent defense! Keep ripping Amir but he is a very raw talent that does make some plays and helps this team have some size against teams. As I have said, he has these spurts of good play but just isn't ready to be a full time player yet. He wasn't supposed to be the starter!
How about you enjoy this team a bit and stop with the name calling and benching! Until they start showing that they can't compete, you all are just whining!

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

rhutchjr's picture

AGREE!!

I would love if our Bucks limited their O- boards

what about the 2 no calls on the other end

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

We can't foul jump shooters

6 minutes in, still fine

TLB's picture

I know. Just muttering to myself

jestertcf's picture

breathe and settle down bucks.

~Because we couldn't go for three~

UrbanCulture's picture

Get lenzelle off the court

dubjayfootball90's picture

what are they chanting?

Kevbo714's picture

I was wondering the same...

Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...

Kevbo714's picture

Maybe my imagination, but it sounds like..."we will not be defeated..."

Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...

dubjayfootball90's picture

sounds like something those little gerbils in MIB II would be chanting

TLB's picture

3 guard is what we need

d1145fresh's picture

Need to pick up the tempo some

741's picture

DT feeling it.

PhillyBuckeye27's picture

Smith is on the bench.....time to make a run.....

dubjayfootball90's picture

sam thompson got mad ups, surprises me every game man

brandonbauer87's picture

If Scott develops a jumper he'll be great. And I LOVE Slam. 

Kevbo714's picture

I wanted that to be slammed so hard!!!

Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...

jeremytwoface's picture

Man... If only Shannon Scott could shoot

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

captain obvious's picture

if only anyone could shoot besides Tank, Q and Shaggy Soprano

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

dubjayfootball90's picture

These chants remind me of those little gerbils oin the locker in MIB II

Kevbo714's picture

Check above for what I heard them chanting...

Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...

741's picture

That's hilarious - I was thinking exactly the same thing. "ALL HAIL J! OH J CAN YOU SEE..."

captain obvious's picture

the cyclown fans have some cute little chants

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

jestertcf's picture

I love the defensive presence when Scott is on the floor.

~Because we couldn't go for three~

Squirrel Master's picture

Craft saw that angle yesterday!

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

rhutchjr's picture

here we go

Toledo, a good place to be FROM

Kevbo714's picture

Craft just held down turbo and hit circle button...

Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...

Idaho Helga's picture

am. breathing.better.  I thought Sam had 2 fouls, yeah I was wrong.

brandonbauer87's picture

Lately Craft has been getting very....crafty around the rim. 

d1145fresh's picture

We are a different (and much better) team with Scott on the floor 

rhutchjr's picture

Scott is on!!
 

Toledo, a good place to be FROM

jestertcf's picture

Dear Trey Burke; That is why Scott was offered

~Because we couldn't go for three~

PhillyBuckeye27's picture

This team has Trey Burke they are a top 3 team....Trey is better than Scott - as painful as that is for us to admit.  We have Trey on this team we may be favored to win the whole thing!

TLB's picture

Totally disagree. Not as good on D and shoots too much for a point guard

TLB's picture

Scott got away with one

Kevbo714's picture

Just work on that jumper Scott... But we already luv ya

Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...

osubuckeye4life's picture

Nice job Scott!!!! Shannon that taunt was not smart!

Idaho Helga's picture

How come Iowa St keeps falling down?

Squirrel Master's picture

Scott has a horrible habit of taking jumpers early in the shot clock, I call it Hero Ball!
but damn is he so good with everything else. 

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

captain obvious's picture

keep talking Cyclowns

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

DetroitBuckeye's picture

What did he do exactly?

jeremytwoface's picture

Taunting...

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

captain obvious's picture

bullshit T

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

UrbanCulture's picture

Ref's see us take momentum...call a jippy technical

rhutchjr's picture

Iowa S Can they handle a little pressure

Toledo, a good place to be FROM

brandonbauer87's picture

Little sensitive to the tech. Unless his mouth let go. 

Squirrel Master's picture

That is why you don't taunt and get a technical! Scott basically traded baskets for that steal! 

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

d1145fresh's picture

I don't care about the T... we need start playing with a chip on our shoulder

argyle182021's picture

Thomas rarely misses those

Kevbo714's picture

Swat!

Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...

d1145fresh's picture

DT is feeling it today. 

Squirrel Master's picture

Ross misses a shot and then makes an awesome defensive play. 
IS THIS BIZARRO WORLD?

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

DetroitBuckeye's picture

Thomas is looking really good so far

 
captain obvious's picture

bang it Tank

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

WolverineKiller's picture

Can someone please tell me why Amir starts anymore?  Rav has been a beast on D.

Just Win.

argyle182021's picture

Buckeyes have won 9 straight with this lineup and rotation.  I trust Matta.

WolverineKiller's picture

Point taken.  In Matta We Trust

Just Win.

rhutchjr's picture

Some players are better off the bench

Toledo, a good place to be FROM

Squirrel Master's picture

I have no idea! At first Ravenel was getting killed as the starting center, so Matta put in Amir and hoped he would develop faster. 
Now Ravenel is playing in straight beast mode and should be starting despite Amir's play good or bad!
Ravenel is playing some AGAMD!

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

Kevbo714's picture

Yes!  This will be a thing!

Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...

rhutchjr's picture

now Q get hot and we are on our way

You see an awful lot of chatter in basketball, so I'd sure like to know what Scott said that rated a T...

2 on scott... who do you bring in?
 

~Because we couldn't go for three~

GABuckeye's picture

Anybody but Smith Jr.  He sucks.

johnblairgobucks's picture

Anybody but Smith Jr.  He sucks.
 

you can take that 3 pointer he made, and stuff it up your backside.

GABuckeye's picture

I can go out there and make 1 out of 10 WIDE OPEN 3s... so take that and shove it up your backside..  if you think he is good, you are the most ignorant basketball fan on earth

johnblairgobucks's picture

he's a Buckeye.  Why you hatin?

GABuckeye's picture

Because he does more harm than good on the court.  He doesn't do anything well.  He can't drive, he can't dribble, he can't shoot, and he's the most overrated defender.  There is no reason for him to be on the court.  And also, I'm hating on him for the same reason everyone hated on Joe Bauserman.  

DetroitBuckeye's picture

He is our 2nd leading scorer on a team whose weakness is scoring.

 
johnblairgobucks's picture

well, he's 1 of 12.  We'll need him to do well to advance, so either keep on sending your hater vibes, or sack up and hope for the best.

TLB's picture

Calling it too close early. Maybe setting the tone then lighten up later

keith7456's picture

Scott lightly tossed the ball at an ISU player along with stareing straight at him and yelling/saying something. Pretty easy taunting tech.

Idaho Helga's picture

so 2 on scott now?BOth stupid fouls. 

brandonbauer87's picture

One more big play and were off. Lots of confidence in this team right now. 

Idaho Helga's picture

We need Scott on the floor. Not good. 

Braxton2Devin's picture

I love roundball but it can be a pussy sport when the refs call everything. And what's wrong with a little taunting?

captain obvious's picture

lets finish the half on a nice 20-4 run

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

740buckeye's picture

Really wish refs would stay out of the game and just let teams play. Did TV Teddy sneak in before the tip?

Buckeye Chuck's picture

If you had told me Iowa State would have this many turnovers already, I'd have thought we were way, way ahead. This is shaping up as a closer game than I hoped it would be.

Need Ross to step it up.

I guess if we fall down they can make the shot.

Idaho Helga's picture

So close to a big run.  Gotta get one going.  Cyclones are sloppy with the ball let's hope that keeps up

Squirrel Master's picture

SMITH LOOKED SO HORRIBLE ON THAT 3! WOW! 

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

captain obvious's picture

I agree

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

captain obvious's picture

I agree

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

741's picture

Okay, Lenzelle - we see you.
 

captain obvious's picture

wow

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

osubuckeye4life's picture

Nice shot Scarlet Mamba!

Idaho Helga's picture

seriously,did they grease the floor?

TLB's picture

Thomas needs to carry us

osubuckeye4life's picture

Rav can't seem to stay on his feet today. 

captain obvious's picture

Rav needs to put on longer cleats

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

d1145fresh's picture

Rav looks like a sniper has taken him out on a couple of plays. 

dubjayfootball90's picture

Your shoes untied? really?

740buckeye's picture

Dear Iowa State, you don't belong. We'll drop a postcard from L.A.

jestertcf's picture

hey you. your shoes untied??
I am hoping thats not the chant

~Because we couldn't go for three~

brandonbauer87's picture

Hey you. You're shoe's untied. 

dubjayfootball90's picture

haha, the last one, "The ball is kinda sticky" was a good chant, I will give them that one

WolverineKiller's picture

Ravanel shoulda given Amir the 60 lbs he lost.

Just Win.

Chet Stedman's picture

They definitely jack up the 3s...

TLB's picture

Go at him and get his third

Squirrel Master's picture

I think at one point I heard the chant "Hey you, let's see that c$ck!" lmao

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

d1145fresh's picture

Got to make open shots if they are going zone

dubjayfootball90's picture

damn these runs, 7-1 for ISU

Kevbo714's picture

On pace to score upper 80s for each team

Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...

UrbanCulture's picture

last thing we needed was scott in foul trouble and lenzelle back on the court. Get the ball to DT

741's picture

Ravenel used to be 320? Really?

PhillyBuckeye27's picture

The problem w/ Smith making that 3 is now he thinks he can shoot.....he outta go about 2-9 for the day....unfortunately Matta has no choice and has to play him since Scott has 2 fouls - lets hope we can limp to the half.  7-1 run since Scott went out and Smith came in - maybe cause Scott plays D and Smith runs after his man chasing him like he wants his autograph!

syllabified's picture

We are not a 3 point shooting team, that is not or identity. Why are we trying to trade 3s? Take the time to develop the shot we make consistently. 

osubuckeye4life's picture

It seems the inside game has worked best so far. Craft needs to drive to the lane.

bdegroff's picture

Amir didn't last long. Don't think he'll see much time unless Rav gets in foul trouble

syllabified's picture

Or brains himself falling down.  

740buckeye's picture

Looks like Ohio State is getting frustrated, losing some edge to their discipline on defense leaving Iowa State open on three's which is killing any lead we work out to. Then we rush down the floor putting up sloppy rushed three's because we aren't working down low without Rav falling all over himself.

Idaho Helga's picture

When you get the ball under the rim, no, the best look is not passing  it out to try for a 3. Shoot the GD ball.  Better yet, dunk.

Braxton2Devin's picture

We were winning by 5 a second ago....

captain obvious's picture

feed Thomas in the post

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

TLB's picture

Amir is so physically weak

d1145fresh's picture

Stop Shooting Smith!!!!

Braxton2Devin's picture

Everything is bouncing out

dubjayfootball90's picture

DAMNIT REBOUND THAT FREAKING BALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BSTP DeCon's picture

We can't keep having Smith shoot and expect to advance. 

jeremytwoface's picture

GET A REBOUND!!!!!

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

Jonnferrell's picture

Come on, Amir.  You have to man up.

Not calling over the back I see!

ISU is going to score if they get four chances to put it back. 

740buckeye's picture

Will someone block out Ejim?! Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

JPBucks3's picture

Why is it so hard for us to rebound? It's just unreal to me 

AJW_16's picture

Box out!

I don't like the way we are playing. Look frustrated

brandonbauer87's picture

Don't be afraid to call a loose ball foul on ISU. 

Squirrel Master's picture

What does someone have to do to get a foul called around here! BS calls one way, no calls the other. Come on refs!

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

Buckeye Chuck's picture

Fouls are even at 6 each.

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

Bucks43201's picture

That doesn't mean it's an even-called game. That just means they missed about five calls. Should be ISU with 8 and OSU with 4.

Officially concerned now. This is not the same team we've seen the last 5 weeks.

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Does Amir ever have a pulse?

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

d1145fresh's picture

We need to keep driving the ball down low on offense. Get them in foul trouble. They are not that deep especially down low. 

dubjayfootball90's picture

it is good to see that we are finally hitting free throws consistently

Squirrel Master's picture

Small lineup is in! time to make a run!

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

dubjayfootball90's picture

these rebounds for ISU are pissing me off, and Amir cannot do sh*t

captain obvious's picture

cmon

Squirrel Master's picture

WHAT!!!! HE WAS HIT ON THE WAY UP!

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

jeremytwoface's picture

Refs are calling this game a little inconsistently.

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

740buckeye's picture

WTF Refs?! Go home, you're drunk!

Braxton2Devin's picture

We are better than this team. Simple. But we all know that in basketball, the better team doesn't always win.

captain obvious's picture

bullshit

osubuckeye4life's picture

BS call! Woah someone finally got a rebound! 

Squirrel Master's picture

THESE REFS ARE FUKING BLIND!

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

captain obvious's picture

keep shooting Q

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

TLB's picture

Ross got fouled

740buckeye's picture

Refs need to get their heads on straight, too many calls one way, either don't call or make the call on both teams. Ridiculous.

Idaho Helga's picture

27 over the back on  rebounds but Aaron get called for that. Ugh.

osubuckeye4life's picture

Nice try to keep it alive Scott!

argyle182021's picture

This game is close because we're getting outrebounded 20-10

dubjayfootball90's picture

oh my god, these rebounds are f****** ridiculous

RedStorm45's picture

On radio now...anyone see an elbow to Craft's face?

740buckeye's picture

Stay on your man! Holy crap. Giving up rebounds left and right, multiple attempts on three's, of course one will go in!

dubjayfootball90's picture

another offensive rebound, what the HELL!!!!!!

captain obvious's picture

BLOCK OUT

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

buckeyewalker's picture

Bucks need to realize that rebounds off 24 foot shots dont fall 5 ft from the rim, they land 12 ft away.

brandonbauer87's picture

The refs are awful. 

Squirrel Master's picture

ROSS GETS RAILROADED GOING UP FOR A SHOT, SAM STEPS TO THE SIDE WHILE A GUY GOES UP! WHERE IS THE FOUL? ON SAM! 
THESE REFS ARE FUKING UP THIS WHOLE GAME AND IT HAS ME FUKING PISSED! COME ON!

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

I hate teams like ISU. Firing up threes that lead to long rebounds and more threes. It screws up any rhythm for the game.

d1145fresh's picture

23-11 on the boards right now per Kyle. Ticky tack fouls and rebounding are killing us right now

You can always tell how we're playing by the ref comments in here.

740buckeye's picture

What is this rebound you speak of? Must be an Iowa thing.

OhioBornMichiganBred's picture

I'm actually kind of rooting for OSU today (as much as I can stomach, anyway...I want an all-B1G Final Four, even though it probably won't happen).
It's with that caveat that I'll say this: Even with a couple missed calls, these refs are WAY better than B1G refs.

Squirrel Master's picture

Very strong chance in 3 of the brackets, UM needs to make sure they step up in theirs! Then I think it will definitely happen!

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

OhioBornMichiganBred's picture

I think Michigan is actually more likely to make it out - they match up ok with Kansas and pretty well with Florida - than MSU going up against a healthy Duke squad.

Kevbo714's picture

Appreciate it... The Bucks should be hindering isu a bit more on D and capitalizing on O in the same fashion...

Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...

dubjayfootball90's picture

out rebounded 23-11, that is putrid

740buckeye's picture

Thad will be a shade of purple never seen before if someone on this team doesn't step it up and assert themselves

Squirrel Master's picture

Only good thing is despite the rebounding margin, unreal 3's by ISU and the refs, OSU is right in this game and not playing great! They can do this!

osubuckeye4life's picture

Oh man that was a pretty move by Q!!!!!!!!!!!

740buckeye's picture

If this keeps up don't be surprised to see someone like Q step in on one of these three's by I.S. probably get a technical foul called on that. These refs are a complete joke.

Lets make a run to end the half.

gotta love Q misses 1st four shots and has no fear
thats where Lenzelles minutes should go
 

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

I would love to be a fly on the wall during halftime to hear Matta rip the D about rebounding. They might go out back to do that drill with the bubble on the rim for 20 minutes. 

BSTP DeCon's picture

Hopefully we are better against the perimeter shots and rebounding in the second half.

argyle182021's picture

Defense is playing well.  Forced 8 turnovers and ISU is shooting 36%.  The problem is rebounding.  23-12 at this point.

dubjayfootball90's picture

yea, rebounding is putrid right now for us, at best

brandonbauer87's picture

I feel good. I don't anticipate them shooting 43% from the 3 in the second half.

dubjayfootball90's picture

oh man, that ankle roll made me cringe on Babb

Squirrel Master's picture

I will not be able to watch the half time show. It is going to be so annoying hearing Barkley say OSU will lose or something. 
What I just said will be the change we will see in the second half, they will not make another 6 three pointers. 
WHY WAS THAT NOT A CHARGE! FUKING REFS!

Lenzelle Smith Jr is SO BAD. I've never disliked a player so much. He's Iowa States best player with his D2 athleticism and constant bricks..

Lol.  No really, tell us how you feel. 

Squirrel Master's picture

I assume you mean on a team you like? I can name a few UM players who you might dislike more.
Plus I could make a case for Kosta Koufos! Guy was overrated and talked trash about Matta and the team. He was awful.

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

tdible2132's picture

Yeah on a team a like I meant. I really could care less who down votes me lol it's plain as day how bad the guy is. I'm not sayin he's a bad human being but he's the difference between us being a great team and a really good one. We go on a run every single time he hits the pine lol if you have DVR go back and watch. We are a different team with him on the bench and I mean different in a good way. The dude is just hard to watch out there

BME_Buckeye's picture

23 rebounds to our 12 rebounds explains the close score in addition to their three point shooting. Box out guys and kick this team teeth in! 

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

 

AJW_16's picture

Didn't think rebounding was going to be this big of an issue. I know that lots of three pointers lend themselves to large bounces that make it easier for offensive rebounds, but we need to sure this up.

"Sometimes you eat the bear and sometimes the bear eats you." 

740buckeye's picture

They need to come to the quick realization that its no cakewalk anymore, there's no walk over teams. You can't get out rebounded 2:1 and expect to progress.

rdubs's picture

We have weathered everything they have thrown at us.  They destroyed us on the boards, hit their threes at a good clip and we even have some foul trouble.  I am not sure if they have much else to throw at us, so if we don't let up in the second half we are in a great spot right now.

brandonbauer87's picture

I agree. We've taken every punch and we're still ahead on the cards. Time to pull away. 

Idaho Helga's picture

I see Ravenel turning it up a notch in the 2nd half. 
...and I imagine Thad has gone periwinkle by now. 

d1145fresh's picture

Having foul trouble, losing the rebounding game, and Smith chucking up way to many shots... being up 2 at the half is a good sign. Matta is a great halftime coach and can make the right changes to pull away in the second half. 

captain obvious's picture

Smith is terrible period

Couple of nice late baskets from Ross on a day when no one else wanted to step up next to Thomas.
Iowa State has five different players outrebounding the combined total of our two centers.
If the Cyclones go 6-14 from 3 in the second half, we probably lose. If they go something like 2-10, we're probably in good shape.

argyle182021's picture

If everyone boxes out the ball goes right to the defender instead.

oregonianbuckeye's picture

I think we'll be okay, folks. We didn't shoot particularly well (despite good looks, for the most part) and we did a crappy job on the defensive glass. I think we will settle in and re-focus, and win by 6-10. ISU's defense is bad, especially against the ball screen.

Squirrel Master's picture

Everything is in OSU's favor but 3 pointers made and rebounds! I just don't see those 2 things continuing like that. Barkley is wrong, I don't think this game will be close. Either ISU continues to do what will be impossible or OSU will stop this mess and take over. 

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

DetroitBuckeye's picture

Rebounds we might improve on but don't expect the 3's to change, they are #1 from behind the arc for a reason.

I do expect the 3's to change because they hit some tough shots and I don't see Craft and Co. letting more of that happen. You watch!

I absolutely agree. Between him and Q I can't decide who I like more. Seeing them both struggle, then show flashes of brilliance is awesome. Can't wait till they both put it all together.

Ross, Thompson, Thomas, Craft, Scott should be the only players who see the floor for the final minutes.

the refs are horrible. They call a push on Slam and he didn't touch the guy. Then Q drains a 3, is knocked down and there is no call. Don't get it.

I said this in some forum a while back about our chances in the Tourney.  We have to watch foul trouble because the refs aren't from the B1G any more.

Oh good, Barkley wants to bitch about the reffing for Iowa State.

Roll with it.

I guess Craft won the bump battle with Niang with that shot in his face.

Now he is going to hate on the big ten by saying "Yeah, they are nine and one in the tournament but Ohio State should be here anymore, Budeep a bubba da beep my lubba" (Mushmouth)

Roll with it.

Oh crap, here we go again!! What about all the terrible calls that led to free throws earlier in the game?

Roll with it.

One of the best things about basketball season is not having to deal with Mark May's butthurt trolling..... And now we have Barkley. Unfair calls? 9 out of every 10 damn calls were in isu's favor!

Chuck seemed to be trying to hide a smirk before he started in on more shit talking.  I think he is starting to realize just how moronic he is and was reaching for straws with his complaining of the refs..  Then again, it's Charles Barkley so probably not.

Thank you Greg Anthony! Preach on!!!

Roll with it.

I really enjoy listening to Anthony. Unfortunately, he always waits until Charles as gone of on one of his rants before he gets a chance to speak. Anthony really understands the game and provides quality analysis. Barkley, not so much.

RollBucks's picture

Agree with you, and then when he is making a point Barkley talks over him if he doesn't agree.

Roll with it.

At this point, I think it is highly likely that Barkley lost money on this game. He won't stop.

I hope OSU wins it all just so Barkley has to eat his words.
