See, Its tough for me one this one. My mom picked scUM out of a hat in her works pool, so if they win, she gets some good money, but I refuse to root for scUM. Basically, I am rooting for NOT Louisville.
Put it this way:
1) If scUM makes a basket, I will be pissed
2) If scUM misses a basket, I will be pissed
3) If Louisville makes a basket, I will be pissed
4) If Louisville misses a basket, I will be happy.
I was so upset my Mom picked scUM out of a hat, even though it was all random, I was very upset, haha

osubuckeye4life's picture

You forgot anytime they show any former TTUN players in the stands you will be pissed.
 
I have no horses in the race and I really hate one horse more than the other.
 
Go Louisville!
 

dubjayfootball90's picture

haha, pissed someone off i guess... WOOO!!!!

WHO WATCHES PITINO'S CASTLE IN TRANSYLVANIA WHILE HE'S AT THE GAME?

AJW_16's picture

Definitely thinking about what could have been if OSU showed up in the first half against Wichita...oh well.

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

NCBuck1's picture

I'll throw out an official "MEH" for tonights game. Good night Buckeyes.

Chief B1G Dump's picture

Go Cards! But mostly go to bed...dang this game starts late.

AJW_16's picture

Yeah no kidding. I know that the networks want some extra time to show their regular programming before they show the game, but sheesh, 9:30 is unnecessary.

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

RedStorm45's picture

Put this on Sunday.  Seriously 

toad1204's picture

Nothing like dancing on the field in 02... 

AJW_16's picture

Because of Twitter I learn that words I thought were nouns can be used as verbs.

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

osubuckeye4life's picture

It might be auto correct.

AJW_16's picture

Touche.

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

William's picture

Pitino is a scumbag and Michigan is Michigan. That comet had to land in Russia instead of Atlanta, damnit. 

AJW_16's picture

I might eat my words at the end of the night, but I just have a feeling that Michigan is better than Louisville. Just a hunch I suppose.

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

AJW_16's picture

Wow, could have been a goal tend.

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

9Route's picture

TTUN got screwed by the no-call on the goaltending.
I'd much rather hear Gus Johnson and somebody else call the game.

I'm just happy to be here

dubjayfootball90's picture

nice fast paced game so far

AJW_16's picture

Yeah, pretty entertaining.

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

osubuckeye4life's picture

Too bad TTUN didn't wear their Zubaz unis.
It could have been the battle of the "sleaves".

William's picture

The Zesta for Michigan is making it rain. 

popeurban's picture

I would root for any other B1G school tonight, but not Michigan.  Well maybe not Indiana either.

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Meechigan playing outta their mind.

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

osubuckeye4life's picture

Somebody put a body on Spike!

lljjgg's picture

Is it just me, or does Michigan travel (as in their fan attendance) incredibly well? Noticed the same thing about the Outback Bowl. Seems wherever they're at, you're looking at at least 50% Michigan fans in the crowd.

popeurban's picture

When you have not been relevant for a while there is pent up demand.

dubjayfootball90's picture

yea, noticed the same. good fan base for sure man

RedStorm45's picture

Guard this guy!!!

dubjayfootball90's picture

scUM be dropping 3's all day wow

Poison nuts's picture

They sure do be. Dammit. DAMMIT!

"Death created time to grow the things that it would kill" - Detective Rustin Cohle.

RedStorm45's picture

5/8 from 3 they can't keep this up.  Right?  Right.

popeurban's picture

I hate this so much!

RedStorm45's picture

Jim Nantz is past his prime.  Get somebody else.

popeurban's picture

Ugh, Kellogg, nance and Kerr are recruiting for Michigan.  

popeurban's picture

To be fair, I guess Michigan is making their own recruiting video.

BME_Buckeye's picture

Spike vs. Craft should be good next year...

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

 

dubjayfootball90's picture

yea man, craft as a senior is a scenario that makes me believe he is going to rock shit for his last year

RedStorm45's picture

Siva looks gassed.

dubjayfootball90's picture

damn man, this is a good game so far, no matter who is winning (scUM of course), but still, pretty entertaining.

tdible2132's picture

Did Clark Kellogg seriously just say that? Wow. Just wow. I can't believe he would say that and then turn the knife by saying "and that's coming from a Buckeye".

RedStorm45's picture

Clark goes too far the other way.

RedStorm45's picture

What the hell?? Guard this kid.

popeurban's picture

Michigan is going to win because of two kids that did not play all year.

osubuckeye4life's picture

At this rate TTUN is gonna run Louisville out of the gym. 

dubjayfootball90's picture

3's are raining down in atlanta

BuckI_1033's picture

Well at least the Big Ten finally won something.

"You'll be proud of our young people in the classroom, in the community, and most especially in 310 days in Ann Arbor, Michigan on the football field." 

popeurban's picture

Is that a positive from a double negative?

BuckI_1033's picture

It's a reverse jinx, but yes I worded it poorly. 

"You'll be proud of our young people in the classroom, in the community, and most especially in 310 days in Ann Arbor, Michigan on the football field." 

William's picture

Well I'm rooting for Michigan, Pitino's antics are Crean-esque. 

popeurban's picture

Pitino could smack a Michigan player in the face and then one of his own players and I would still root for him.

dubjayfootball90's picture

wow, good defense by mcgary

el duderino's picture

Is it just me, or does Pitino have the unnaturally pale look of someone who's been embalmed?
Seriously, he looks creepy.

"This is a very complicated case: a lot of ins, lot of outs, lot of what-have-yous."

Phillips.449's picture

Great minds think alike! +1

popeurban's picture

I have been thinking this.  What happened to him?  Does he have a major illness?

el duderino's picture

He honestly has that look. I wonder if there's something we don't know.
Even more reason to say, GO CARDS! Win it for your nearly dead or possibly recently-prepared-for-viewing-hours coach!

"This is a very complicated case: a lot of ins, lot of outs, lot of what-have-yous."

Phillips.449's picture

Pitino needs to go out in the sun and eat a sandwich!
 

osubuckeye4life's picture

Maybe he is part of the same clan as Bo Ryan?

RedStorm45's picture

This is pathetic.  Letting Spike go crazy.  Good job, Louisville.

RedStorm45's picture

Louisville with a slim 4 point lead over Spike Albrecht.

dubjayfootball90's picture

now that is an impressive stat, haha

BROSEPH's picture

Basketball gods are Michigan fans tonight.  Kids shooting into an ocean.

popeurban's picture

Hopefully Chris webber gives a halftime speech to Michigan.

osubuckeye4life's picture

Or, should I say William Francis from 15th century England.

popeurban's picture

Why do they keep showing Burke?  What Michigan fan wants to take spike out for him?

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Time for a Kevin Ware inspirational halftime speech

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

RedStorm45's picture

Too many timeouts.

Jack Fu's picture

"Oh shit, in order to beat Louisville all you have to do is make all of your jumpers. Why didn't we think of that?"
-Every team that played Louisville this season

RedStorm45's picture

Why is the floor raised? I know it's supposed to be for sight lines but can anyone explain it?

dubjayfootball90's picture

maybe gives the players a feeling of playing and being on "The Big Stage", above all else. I know they dop that for wrestling championships, All american matches, 1st place matches, etc. Gives more 'prestige', if you will, to the game

Kurt's picture

A few years ago the NCAA decided that its basketball championships would only be played in stadiums with a capacity of 70k or more and also to be played on raised-floor courts -- I think a direct homage to Minnesota.

RedStorm45's picture

Wow, what a push off by Hardaway.

RedStorm45's picture

These refs have been awful all tournament.  Why change now?

dubjayfootball90's picture

yea, commentators mentioned it earlier, sloppy reffing and a lot of missed calls, easy calls. That goal tending at the beginning of the game was absurd

BME_Buckeye's picture

This game is over! Good Night! 
Edit: I spoke to soon! 

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

 

popeurban's picture

Nooooo BME go back to what you were doing.  You sparked a comeback.

hodge's picture

Spike seems sharp tonight...
I laugh because I don't want to cry. 

dubjayfootball90's picture

wow, now the 3's are going the other way, kid is on fire

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Hancock is killing it

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

popeurban's picture

Ok, now this is fun.  I like this!

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

What an oop

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

osubuckeye4life's picture

I think most of the city of Louisville is in the crowd tonight.

Jack Fu's picture

Shit got weird...er, you guys.

osubuckeye4life's picture

Siva almost made that! 

dubjayfootball90's picture

what an entertaining half, damn, Louisville closed out strong, gonna set up a strong finish man, dont go to bed yet!!!

osubuckeye4life's picture

It definitely was an entertaining half. Second half will be quite interesting.

RedStorm45's picture

"It's a basketball game" thanks, john.

Knarcisi's picture

I'm nearly 40 years old and that may be the best half of basketball I have ever seen. Too bad the officials are missing a good game. I hope this game doesn't get tainted by a missed call. 

tussey's picture

Absolutely,  for instance will Haraway ever get called for his offensive foul whenever he drives?  He is using his off arm to shove the defender and make room for himself.

Chief B1G Dump's picture

At what point does pitino turn back into a bat?

Knarcisi's picture

Cards need Batman to fight off Michigans Boy Wonder. 

Knarcisi's picture

Here's a comforting thought. Kyle Berger. We will finish 1-0 vs scUM on this day. 

SC Buckeye's picture

Sounds like Barkley's laryngitis is coming on two weeks too late...

dubjayfootball90's picture

I think that is a tell tale sign that he needs to scarf down another bearclaw

Knarcisi's picture

Why couldn't Barkley end with the Tru TV games?

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

What do you think about Burke sitting most of the first half? Spike was great on offense but during Louisville's run, he was getting killed on the screens.

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

RedStorm45's picture

Wtf is up with everyone at CBS being all up on Michigan's junk?

osubuckeye4life's picture

@buckeyeboyers
If TTUN loses it will definitely be talked about.
If TTUN wins it will be a moot point. 

Earle's picture

Three wishes for the rest of the night:
1) Michigan loses
2) Van Helsing puts a stake through Pitino's undead heart
3) Charles Barkley completely loses his voice--forever

EDIT: OK, I'll happily take one out of three, but I do think Pitino nearly had a coronary when they set off the fireworks.

toad1204's picture

Beware, Tom Crean waiting in the wings with a ladder and scissors.

Nothing like dancing on the field in 02... 

Knarcisi's picture

How bad does Creen look?  Michigan killed that Cuse zone and it was like someone asked Creen to take IU to Mars. 

740's picture

remember that time....BOBBY BOUCHER SHOWED UP AT HALFTIME AND THE MUD DAWGS WON THE BOURBON BOWL?

RedStorm45's picture

Hey Steve, why don't you just put your Michigan cap on?  Geez.

Knarcisi's picture

He did. Didn't you see him hit 6 3s in the 1st half?

Knarcisi's picture

Not one downvote on the entire thread and I get one for this?

Knarcisi's picture

At least express your displeasure. 

Knarcisi's picture

Let me guess ... BuckeyeBoyer

Knarcisi's picture

I'll take that as a yes. 

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Actually it wasn't me. I know we've had beef but I'm over that stuff. I don't DV on threads unless it's really bad.

Edit: just to bury the hatchet I up voted all your comments. Go bucks

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Oh no, here comes the tight second half whistles.

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

RedStorm45's picture

This officiating is a joke.

tussey's picture

at least it has been consistent...ly awful throughout the entire tournament

GABuckeye's picture

I'm going to puke if Michigan wins.  And I'm guessing it'll be a similar color to those god awful uniforms.

RedStorm45's picture

Timeouts on timeouts on timeouts.

tussey's picture

has scUM ran an effective inbounds play underneath the basket yet?

RedStorm45's picture

It's hard when you don't have Sam Thompson, right?

Brutus Greyshield's picture

I'm waiting for them to call a charge on Syracuse and give both Michigan and Lou some free throws.

toad1204's picture

What about the animals?  What would they be made out of?

Nothing like dancing on the field in 02... 

popeurban's picture

was trey Burke the consensus player of the year?

popeurban's picture

and how did Michigan do so well without him the first half?

Knarcisi's picture

They signed John Stockton and he magically showed up in the 1st half. 

Knarcisi's picture

There's Stockton, #2. 

popeurban's picture

More of a Danny Ainge to me, but I digress.

Knarcisi's picture

I like yours better 

popeurban's picture

Either way, I am just happy he is on the bench right now.

tussey's picture

welcome to the circus

RedStorm45's picture

What the heck is wrong with Russ Smith??

RedStorm45's picture

Louisville is just taking circus layups.  Dumb.

Knarcisi's picture

Louisville has withstood scUm's best punch. 

KBonay's picture

Reminds me of OSU/Kansas game last year. Michigan played lights out first half, but just couldn't pull away. 

Knarcisi's picture

I get the point but you are doing this game injustice with the comparison. 

popeurban's picture

Aside from not liking Michigan, I really did not care for Louisville, but with that horrible injury to ware, I feel for the kid and his teammates.  Just bad luck.

tussey's picture

bahanon is cleaning up the weakside glass right now

Knarcisi's picture

Have I said this is a hell of a game?

popeurban's picture

Unless the good guys lose.  But yeah, it is great unless that happens.

lljjgg's picture

Trey Burke -- Columbus, Ohio
Chane Behanan -- Cincinnati, Ohio

Ohiooooooooo noooooooo lol.

Knarcisi's picture

Don't remind us. A downside to Sully coming to us all the time. We never went out and saw Burke. 

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Was just gonna mention that. Good call.

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

rdubs's picture

Louisville better hope this doesn't go to overtime.

popeurban's picture

Don't speak it into existence.

Knarcisi's picture

Anyone that says college basketball is down should watch this game. 

Phillips.449's picture

Totally agreed!  This is nuts!

popeurban's picture

True, but I feel like this is not the norm.  ESP for this tournament.

popeurban's picture

Siva siva siva time

Knarcisi's picture

Siva is fearless. 

Knarcisi's picture

Wow. Big counter. 

osubuckeye4life's picture

Siva has a little bit of AI in him. 

popeurban's picture

I see kimba walker, but yeah, AI too.

osubuckeye4life's picture

I can see Kimba too not to mention it is a more recent comparison. Good call.

RedStorm45's picture

Burke is more Kemba than Siva.

tussey's picture

yes but kemba could shoot the 3, I haven't seen siva do that

SC Buckeye's picture

Someone remind me where Kellogg went to school?

popeurban's picture

I am hoping it is just B1G love

Knarcisi's picture

Group hug for a great game?

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Where has Russ Smith been? No factor.

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

rdubs's picture

Ask and ye shall receive.

Phillips.449's picture

Louisville looks like they are starting to wear down scUM.

popeurban's picture

From your mouth to gods ears

Phillips.449's picture

Haa.  I will shut up now!

Knarcisi's picture

scUM better be careful here. 

johnblairgobucks's picture

nah, they can epically fail.  I enjoyed Chris Weber's failed time-out call more than Desmond Howard's Heisman pose.

Knarcisi's picture

Another group hug for Hangover III ?

Knarcisi's picture

Reach around if scUM loses. 

SC Buckeye's picture

"We've been on a lot of adventures together, but it seems like you haven't learned anything; ANYTHING!"

tennbuckeye19's picture

bo ryan thinks the pace of this game is way too fast.

Knarcisi's picture

Deal with it, Bo!

popeurban's picture

BO had a seizure five minutes ago.

umbyosu's picture

Bo already asleep, still dreaming about his lost soul Bret B.
 

luckynutz's picture

it feels like peyton siva has been at louisville for like 7 years. He's like the van wilder of college basketball.

Knarcisi's picture

I'm sure it feels that way for others with Craft. 

osubuckeye4life's picture

Or, the Chris Weinke of college basketball.

wibuckeye's picture

Aaron Craft owns the player of the year.

WIBUCKEYE

tennbuckeye19's picture

how does um only have 3 fouls this half ? crazy.

popeurban's picture

Refs will have to even it up.  This is good for ville IMO.

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

The shooting in this game, on both sides, is pretty darn good.

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

SilverBulletNYC's picture

Lets go Cards!

The South will NOT rise again!

SilverBulletNYC's picture

Hope Trey is OK.

The South will NOT rise again!

tennbuckeye19's picture

russ smith is off tonight. 

OSU_undergrad's picture

Ville showing class...helping Michigan players up every time.

osubuckeye4life's picture

Trey has been knocked around in this game. A tough OHIO kid.

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Wow what a turn of events!

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

SC Buckeye's picture

Absolutely sick!!!

Knarcisi's picture

Seems like every time ... Both ways. 

Knarcisi's picture

Hey, does anyone know what time the game starts?

SC Buckeye's picture

These two teams are definitely leaving it all on the court

umbyosu's picture

Where were these refs in the tourney???

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

This game is freaking incredible! That was a clean block

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

osubuckeye4life's picture

Wow that was a great effort by Trey. Looks like it is time to even things up for the Cards.

SC Buckeye's picture

It makes me sick to say, but no way in hell was that a foul on Burke

Knarcisi's picture

Refs missed that one on Trey ...  A tear. 

luckynutz's picture

that was a pretty block. And a horrible call.

ShowThemOhiosHere's picture

TSUN got away with so many fouls that weren't called, so they can suck it.

Class of 2010.

tennbuckeye19's picture

u of l is feeling it right now!

Knarcisi's picture

Danger zone ... Again. 

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

I'm sensing an all time great finish...

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

tussey's picture

like the Kansas vs Memphis championship game?

Knarcisi's picture

UL forces this pace, and thieves in it. 

osubuckeye4life's picture

Dieng went around the world on that one!

Phillips.449's picture

They have been tearing it up in the paint. 

Knarcisi's picture

They go war on those boards don't they?

bigbadbuck's picture

Come on Cards. Only 434 left till that yellow grunge goes home a loser.again

Battles are sometimes won by generals; wars are nearly always won by sergeants and privates. Football is no different, the guys down in the trenches win the games, not the coach.            

popeurban's picture

I really hope that the fab five came to town to experience another heartbreaker.

Knarcisi's picture

Won't have to call a TO with the 3 minutes to check a tenth of a second. 

Phillips.449's picture

Michigan needs to call some more time outs so they can hit -1 again.
 

osubuckeye4life's picture

Hancock just put his signature on this one again.

Phillips.449's picture

"splendid execution"
 

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Haha that towel boy took a spill!

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

luckynutz's picture

That should do it folks. They just don't have any gas left in the tank defensively.

Knarcisi's picture

Should have used clock there. 

popeurban's picture

Lets hope that does not haunt

tennbuckeye19's picture

louisville is starting a band called 'Foul Trouble'.

OSUBias's picture

The only thing I keep thinking while watching the is how badly Louisville would have kicked our ass...and how nice it would be to have 4 shooting threats and a post presence. Ahhhhhhh pipe dreams. 

Slider...you stink

RedStorm45's picture

They beat Wichita State by 4.

ShowThemOhiosHere's picture

Louisville would not have kicked our ass.

Class of 2010.

wmbuckeye557's picture

Burke will not pass it the rest of the game. 

Phillips.449's picture

WOW!  That was determination there!

osubuckeye4life's picture

Bahannon is relentless inside!

rdubs's picture

Burke was selling that one.  They have been guarding him hard, but that one was a nice acting job.

tennbuckeye19's picture

refs will not call a foul on UM

popeurban's picture

You are right tenn.  I can't believe it.

Knarcisi's picture

They are war eagles on the boards. 

popeurban's picture

What is smith doing???

tennbuckeye19's picture

russ smith, what are you doing?

osubuckeye4life's picture

Behanen went airborne there!

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Rick Pitino will be portrayed by Robert DeNiro in an upcoming film titled "The back room at Porcini's"

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

popeurban's picture

Good timeout Rick!

RedStorm45's picture

Bahahaha there are Michigan fans complaining about the refs.  It was 10-4 just a few minutes ago - foul calls that is.

wmbuckeye557's picture

You would think that they would be able to handle the press. 

BTwrestle04's picture

Russ Smith is trying to lose this game or something.

Knarcisi's picture

Point shaving 30 for 30 now in the works. 

Knarcisi's picture

Come on Kellogg. 

Knarcisi's picture

Dagger cometh. 

rdubs's picture

Why are any of the players with 3 or 4 fouls on the floor?  Walk ons can foul as well as starters.

RedStorm45's picture

This game is so late.  NCAA needs to fix this.

SC Buckeye's picture

Its on par with the finish of the BCS championship.  It finished around midnight

popeurban's picture

But three people on the west coast want to watch.

tennbuckeye19's picture

So true. I'm on Central Time and I still HATE these late games!

Knarcisi's picture

I'm up for Fri night final 4 and Sun early evening final. 

RedStorm45's picture

A la Super Bowl, yes?

Phillips.449's picture

Nice waste of time scUM

tennbuckeye19's picture

Sorry UM. It's OVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

wmbuckeye557's picture

To bad they have so many time outs left!

Knarcisi's picture

Group reach around coming. 

Knarcisi's picture

Even me and BuckeyeBoyer. 

osubuckeye4life's picture

Did we just see the new Minnesota coach in the stands?

popeurban's picture

Does pitino retire?

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Start preparing your TTUN message board fodder

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

popeurban's picture

Cheerleader was so sad

Phillips.449's picture

Here come the Michitears!!!!

bigbadbuck's picture

and excuses!

Battles are sometimes won by generals; wars are nearly always won by sergeants and privates. Football is no different, the guys down in the trenches win the games, not the coach.            

Knarcisi's picture

Great game, Kentucky!

tennbuckeye19's picture

Chris Webber being at the game was bad luck. 

bigbadbuck's picture

whooooooooooooooooooooooooo hoooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!

Battles are sometimes won by generals; wars are nearly always won by sergeants and privates. Football is no different, the guys down in the trenches win the games, not the coach.            

wmbuckeye557's picture

Sad UM makes me happy. 

Buckeye Chuck's picture

MICHIGAN STILL SUCKS

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

tussey's picture

And that's the way the cookie crumbles. lolz

Phillips.449's picture

Haaa I think Pitino just sh!t himself!

BuckeyeBoyer85's picture

Hahaha wtf was that

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

osubuckeye4life's picture

Pitino was ducking from the explosions going off. 

tennbuckeye19's picture

Kentucky fans are burning things. They are so pissed. Meanwhile OSU fans are HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!

kr66osu's picture

thank god
also Pitino just shat him self there

popeurban's picture

Again, does pitino retire?

Knarcisi's picture

Eat shit Beilein. 

BME_Buckeye's picture

 
 
Fail!  But remember our cheer:
Fail!  But just WAIT 'TIL NEXT YEAR!
Fail!  Fail!  We Missed-Again!
Forever second best!

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

 

BTwrestle04's picture

Pitino def just pooped his pants

Knarcisi's picture

Can Burke and Haradaway go pro, please   

mwbri's picture

Great game Burke (really).  Now stick to your intentions and go to the Association and take Hardaway with you too.

osubuckeye4life's picture

Louisville definitely deserved it and I think TTUN represented the B1G well. Trey was trying his best to will them to a victory. 

kr66osu's picture

someone gif Pitino flinching at the confetti explosions

RedStorm45's picture

To all of those who cheered for Michigan - how do you feel now?

Knarcisi's picture

Word. Couldn't wish for a ring for scUM. 

kr66osu's picture

I will never understand the cheering for a conference thing
Who gives a sh*t about the conference's 'perception', especially in basketball.

umbyosu's picture

Second place is the first loser.  SCUM!

tennbuckeye19's picture

I thought Indiana was supposed to win it all?????

Knarcisi's picture

Creen looked like he was trying to go to the moon against the zone that scUM figured out. 

bigbadbuck's picture

didn't you hear? They already have their net!

Battles are sometimes won by generals; wars are nearly always won by sergeants and privates. Football is no different, the guys down in the trenches win the games, not the coach.            

popeurban's picture

Glad the fab five was there to soak it in all over again.

OSUStu's picture

Congrats fellow Buckeye fans!  Second best thing to winning it ourselves.

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

Am I the only one really excited for "One Shining Moment"?
Some chills-inducing moments by AC and LaQ are sure to be a part of it.
As well as AACC's tears. Delicious.

I know he may play for the enemy, but damn...trey burke showed some serious heart tonight. Took a beating and kept on coming. Behanan looked good too...a lot to be said about ohio ballers. Whole lot of heart.

I agee Burke was trying so hard to will his team to victory. Behanan was just a monster inside in the second half.

Hey Beilein, give kudos to Kentucky.

Where's Q???  Cold blooded.

Agreed! One Shining Moment was awesome, EXCEPT they dissed Q's "cold-blooded" 3!

I'm just happy to be here

Was I happy to see Louisville beat scUM?


I was going to type something less than classy, but this picture sums it up for me.

How did tOSU not land Burke? Just curious.

What we can't do in the air we'll do on the ground.

I slept well last night, knowing Louisville won the big game. I'll give some credit to the scUM; they went a lot farther in the Dance than I thought they would. They got hot when they needed to. Now will everyone come back for next year or will they lose Burke, Hardaway and someone like McGary, who played well in the NCAA?
