-18 seems like a lot. Ohio isn't bad. I think we will win by 12-15.

Come on Long Island. No OT, whatever happens.

Guys, if LIU- Brooklyn could make a layup IU loses this game. For reals.

Ohio1St81's picture

I'm ready to see Amir do well, his time to break out has come.

slippy's picture

I thoguht he played his best games in the tourney last year.  Hopefully his offensive game has improved.  Even just 8 ppg from him would be huuuuge to this team.

any link to watch the game online please?

Brady Hoke is confused by this matchup.

So much confusion.

I like the full court press.

You can count me in as someone excited about Maryland being added to the B1G.  I live in Bmore and Comcast just added BTN to my basic package without charging me more!

MDBUCK's picture

Dude you just saved my night.  I live in Columbia.  I tried ordering BTN yesterday and it wouldn't let me, checked it after reading your comment and BOOM gametime.  Thanks man!

slippy's picture

You live in Columbia?  I'm sorry to hear that...
 
Haha, just kidding.  I actually just moved back to Columbus from Ellicott City.

MDBUCK's picture

Haha as soon as I find a job back home I'm right behind you

Would love to see Ohio O Zone's mentions on twitter.  Fools.

Ohio1St81's picture

Good for Clark in green - he was in tears while he was broadcasting and his son was so close to getting past North Carolina a couple of years ago in the tournament. 

MichiganBuckeye222's picture

Ohio state versus Ohio???  Brady hoke and the rest of the Michigan slappies just had a collective stroke.

Looks like OU is really missing D.J. Cooper. When a MAC school has a guy like him, you have to enjoy it while it lasts.

Really impressive defense early. This team could be an elite defensive team.

William's picture

Amadeo, you should be draining FTs...

RedStorm45's picture

Need to execute.  Can't just sit on a 9-0 lead.

RedStorm45's picture

free throws, free throws, free throws.

RedStorm45's picture

That Loving block, though...

Slightly unrelated, but Kentucky looks terrible
they need to stop making rankings based on recruiting classes

Thompson doing Thompson things

oregonianbuckeye's picture

Shannon Scott looks fantastic. 

pcuzz1's picture

I would like to see Amir get fed the ball down low. Should be able to dominate

pat cozzens

BuckeyeMike74's picture

So the first shot Ohio made was clearly a 2. They gave them 3 points and never fixed it. 

BuckeyeMike74's picture

And still it is not fixed.  That's incredible.

Anyone know what channel the Ohio State - Marquette game is on this Saturday?

theScore app says FOX. 

thekornidentity's picture

That's awesome. I really hope it's Gus Johnson and Bill Raftery doing the game.

Mute's picture

Not liking the offense the last few minutes, little bit sloppy and complacent

slippy's picture

Can't quite figure out the zone.  Need a little triangle game with Ross attacking the elbow.

kevdale86's picture

9 players have played in the first half and 8 have scored. There have probably a few years where a Matta team hasn't had 8 players score in a whole season. Haha

William's picture

Shannon Scott pulling his best Nikitin there. 

RedStorm45's picture

I don't think anyone else gets this reference haha

pcuzz1's picture

Penetrate the zone

pat cozzens

William's picture

These are some ticky tacky fouls. 

oregonianbuckeye's picture

Welcome to the new rules. Every game I've watched this year has been like this.

William's picture

It's turrible...

RedStorm45's picture

Q = ultimate zone buster.

andyb's picture

Score update and time remaining fellas?  Much appreciated!

RedStorm45's picture

32-21 good guys, 4:54 to go.

RedStorm45's picture

40-28 at the half.

pcuzz1's picture

This whole missing free throws needs to get fixed

pat cozzens

slippy's picture

Ugh.  Craft's form doesn't look any better.

RedStorm45's picture

His FT's are fine. He doesn't look any better on his jump shot, despite "re-working" it with Jent and Paulus. He releases the ball so freaking low, it's no wonder he shoots so poorly from outside.

Mute's picture

College basketball is turning into a a freethrow fest

Brady Hoke ate my comment

RedStorm45's picture

Thompson looks like he could be called for traveling every possession.

RedStorm45's picture

OMG HIT A FREAKING LAYUP my goodness.

William's picture

Well, Sam Thompson can dunk. 

William's picture

OSU can't hit a shot from inside three feet right now. 

RedStorm45's picture

This team might be shooting 20% from inside two feet for the season (not counting Slam's dunks). 

oregonianbuckeye's picture

Someone needs to punch Stevie Taylor. 

Mute's picture

Offense looks clueless right now

RedStorm45's picture

The unit that is about to put up 40 in the half?

cb1501's picture

Offense looks good to me.  Just a few missed opportunities.

rdubs's picture

Mack Brown is going to be on the hot seat after tonight:

oregonianbuckeye's picture

I really like our depth this year. Feel like we can go 9 deep, possibly 10 when Kam gets healthy. 

cb1501's picture

I'd like to see Ross be more aggressive.

Braxton2Devin's picture

Amir playing like a boss

oregonianbuckeye's picture

Amir is 6/6 on FT. Holy smokes.

Braxton2Devin's picture

Lovin' Shannon's 3-pters!

Buckeye Chuck's picture

I think Amir is tied for the team lead in scoring, which I'm guessing has never happened before, at least not past 2-0 in a game.

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

Mute's picture

Almost a 4 point play chance

skid21's picture

#0 had some words for Williams and then Williams put him on his arse.

Braxton2Devin's picture

Amir picking up some great Offensive rebounds!!

Mute's picture

Meanwhile Michigan State imploding

skid21's picture

Payne can't play defense.

RedStorm45's picture

This team is absolutely pathetic at shooting inside of 3 feet - Sam Thompson dunks not included.

Mute's picture

Come the hell on these fouls are ridiculous

kareemabduljacobb's picture

Losing DT will hurt a lot this year.  We need that scoring threat.

William's picture

4-16 from 3 now. 

William's picture

This team's offense is chuck the ball to Thompson tonight. 

RedStorm45's picture

And live at the line.

Mute's picture

Thank goodness this team plays great defense because they can't make a jumper to save their lives today

RedStorm45's picture

We're outscoring them 26-8 at the FT line.

zbd's picture

Sam can get up.

Braxton2Devin's picture

I wish we could just pull away from this one

RedStorm45's picture

Now more FTA than FGA.

Someone get Clark Kellogg a half OSU/half OU shirt haha

William's picture

This is going to be a pretty ugly win. 

William's picture

3 made field goals in the 2nd half by OSU...

Braxton2Devin's picture

Yea Ohio isn't going away. QUIT giving up the 3

ShowThemOhiosHere's picture

So I've only had the game on for like 5 minutes but I will say Amir has gotten a lot better from the line overall.

Class of 2010.

SnooBucki's picture

Marquette will give us a beating if we play like this....

Mute's picture

HOLY CRAP THEY MADE A FIELD GOAL

Braxton2Devin's picture

The only person that can freaking shoot is our freshman

William's picture

A made FG, what is this, basketball? 

kareemabduljacobb's picture

This team just isn't as good in years past.. I don't see us gettin any further than the Sweet 16.  Needed DT to come back.

William's picture

What the Hell was that?

William's picture

The defense is fine, but this team sucks on offense. Turrible.

RedStorm45's picture

This announcer sucks.  And we're starting to choke.

Mute's picture

This offense is horrible

Braxton2Devin's picture

Holy shit wake the fuck up

William's picture

Stevie Taylor is better offensively than our entire starting 5 combined right now. 

skid21's picture

Craft's offense hasn't improved.

oregonianbuckeye's picture

4 FG in the 2nd half? What the dilly?

Braxton2Devin's picture

What a fucking shitty game, the Marquette game could be messy

PharmBuck's picture

Who is this play by play announcer? Dude sounds like the biggest Ohio fan ever. Get a grip man.
 
Edit: Down vote? Must have some bobcats lurking

"You're pissed because we went after a committed guy? Guess what, we got 9 guys who better go do it again," said Meyer. "Do it a little harder next time."

skid21's picture

4 FGs in the entire second half. WTF. To say Thad has some work to do is an understatement.

Braxton2Devin's picture

How can you feel good about this team after today?

skid21's picture

Everyone has a bad game? That is the only thing I can think at this point. Ohio at home and you can't make shots? Not good.

Mute's picture

Nice one Craft

William's picture

If it weren't for the free throw line, we would be getting run out of the gym right now. 

skid21's picture

Craft is not finishing at the basket.

kareemabduljacobb's picture

Wisky up on Florida.
 

Braxton2Devin's picture

Goddamit Craft hasn't improved one bit. We keep hearing that he's putting in so much work in his offensive game over the offseason, but I just dont see it

skid21's picture

I agree. SO much hype on how much he has worked but he still is a weak O player. Is so bad at finishing on the drive.

PharmBuck's picture

Maybe a little less defense at practice and a little more FT shooting -- what a joke our free throw shooting is

"You're pissed because we went after a committed guy? Guess what, we got 9 guys who better go do it again," said Meyer. "Do it a little harder next time."

Braxton2Devin's picture

Motherfucker they have 1 big man and he still manages to o-rebound

William's picture

OSU is going to lose this game. 

skid21's picture

Nah. Maybe we should have but we won't.

William's picture

Correct. Overreaction on my part. We deserve to lose this game. 

Braxton2Devin's picture

Amir Williams has a double-double.

William's picture

Amir Williams has 14 and 10, he has showed up tonight. 

Braxton2Devin's picture

Ross has to be more consistent

RedStorm45's picture

Remember when we had a 15 point lead this half...

William's picture

Wasn't it up to 17? Shooting under 28% for the half will do that to you. 

zbd's picture

Does anybody play defense for OSU?  Sure look lazy or tired. The 2nd game of the season?

Mute's picture

Craft made a layup, am I dreaming?

Braxton2Devin's picture

Craft finished on the drive!

RedsBuckeyeBoy's picture

If the Buckeye basketball team can't open up a bigger lead against OU, I'm afraid the poll voters will drop the football team 2 spots.

William's picture

EHRMAGERD a 3 pointer

kareemabduljacobb's picture

Matta with the fist bump.

TheChase's picture

Smith only needed 38 minutes to hit a shot from the field.

xrox's picture

This season has been bordering on unwatchable across the NCAA. I know the media keep saying players will adjust...but man, it better be soon. There is no flow. OU has had what, 4 guys foul out? This hasn't even been a physical game. OSU/Wiscy never even got this slow.

Mute's picture

It's going to be a miserable season I think. I don't know how players are supposed to adjust within weeks when they've been taught to play defense a specific way for their entire lives

William's picture

Wisconsin-Michigan State may take 8 hours to play this year. 

RedsBuckeyeBoy's picture

The NCAA will have to institute a triple bonus or that game will never end. If you get fouled on a triple bonus, your team automatically gets 2 points and 1 minute is removed from the game clock. 

Buckeye Chuck's picture

That's why I suspect the officials will revert to previous form, as has happened before when they swore that THIS TIME they were getting serious about cracking down on the handchecking. No one likes games like this, and entertainment is important.

xrox's picture

That's what I'm hoping. Cause at this point, I'm  watching OSU games and nothing else. Past few years, I've watched all I could no mater who was playing. It's just not fun to watch right now. They better have something figured out by tournament time.

William's picture

Great perimeter defense. 

Braxton2Devin's picture

We better come to play against Marquette. They just put up 112 something points.

skid21's picture

Not going to overreact. OU is a decent team. Still disappointed with what I saw tonight for a top 10 team.

bwh's picture

Good god. With this much bitching and complaining you'd think we were losing to sienna or something.

Apparently a win isn't a win, unless it's a big win... and someone said this team will "only get to the sweet 16." ONLY? God. This fanbase has become overly spoiled by Matta and Meyer.

awydontucry's picture

I know there seems to be a gap in our offense but man chill out. Ohio has made some tuff baskets and we've completely biffed some easy shots. We got to the FT line a shit ton which is a good sign and some good steals. I admit just judging by this game our offense isnt very good but we have all year to improve it.

AlphaMaleBettor's picture

Is Ohio U. really fouling this many times (well, both teams really) ... or is it yet another extension of the pussification of modern-day America? We see it football with all of the new rules, and of this anti-"bullying" BS. Now basketball has gone soft.
 
Go Bucks!

ShowThemOhiosHere's picture

Craft done broke some dude's ankles.

Class of 2010.

skid21's picture

Has Clark moved the entire game? I swear he has been in the same position, with the same expression, for 3 hours.

ShowThemOhiosHere's picture

With all of the free throws, who needs to make field goals?  What the hell is this new rule stuff?  Are they calling more ticky tacky shit?  Ugh I sure hope not. 

Class of 2010.

5-18 Three Point Shooting ain't gonna get it done.

cb1501's picture

Not too worried. Still got the 10 point win.  Matta Teams ALWAYS improve throughout the season.  I'm looking forward to the rest of the year!
