Good win for the B1G with Illinois over Mizzou. Now Go Bucks!

Bet you can't say "Bert Bielma is a bumbling buffoon" five times fast.

Damn Amir ain't playin very good D

Braxton2Devin's picture

Both teams are sloppy as shit, disinterested

Scott is on fire
 

Braxton2Devin's picture

Terrible officiating. Pussy phantom fouls

Mikefletcher24's picture

Let's go Stanford
 

skid21's picture

Matta says bullshit and I agree with him.
 

Braxton2Devin's picture

I can't stand watching basketball these days unless my Buckeyes are playing. So many fouls called. People make fun about soccer being a pussy sport, but I can tell you, there's a lot more physical contact allowed in soccer than in bball

Braxton2Devin's picture

Loving just getting unlucky

Mikefletcher24's picture

I miss football season

Irish ice cold and still one score away.

we need someone to step into a scoring role very, very bad.

Hope you all are doing well. Go Bucks!

Hey guys...I'm in the woods on top of a mountain in the Ozarks...no TV.
Anybody know of a good internet site for free streaming of the game?
Thanks!

southernstatesbuckeye's picture

Found it.  I'm only an idiot.  Not quite a moron, and closer to an imbecile, but I may be educable.
So there's hope.
Go Bucks!

Not much interest in hoops? This is a big game for us but less than 20 comments on the game thread.

Yeah this is really surprising.

Meh, its December Basketball, not surprising that there aren't alot of people hyped up for this game, plus its not like were playing Duke or anything, Notre Dame is unranked and a 3-loss team. Not all that interesting.

Braxton2Devin's picture

Well it's a 2-point game so....

Braxton2Devin's picture

Wow. What a start....

Braxton2Devin's picture

honestlyt what the fuck

Braxton2Devin's picture

Fucking refs need to take their whistles out of their asses

FROMTHE18's picture

Fickell must have coached the team this week. No defense.

RedStorm45's picture

North Dakota State beat this team. What the bloody hell is going on?

RedStorm45's picture

Holy crap so many TO's this half

rihmds80's picture

Anybody else sick of Dachitch keep mentioning how Craft has been with the Buckeyes for "17 years"?

Deadly Nuts's picture

These refs suck.

LEBRON

rihmds80's picture

Must've been bought off by the ACC

Braxton2Devin's picture

Lol is this OSU basketball?

dubjayfootball90's picture

We. Look. Absolutely. Terrible. It is truly comical at this point.

skid21's picture

Any time McDonald is in the game is a concern. He sucks.

Doc's picture

I'm in a total technology black out. Please give me a score. Thanks
 

"Say my name."

dubjayfootball90's picture

44-43 we are losing, just over 10 minutes left

Braxton2Devin's picture

Wow. Our only big game so far and we are screwing it up. Kinda like our football team.

RedStorm45's picture

Marquette. Maryland. Try again.

Braxton2Devin's picture

Ok. Our only big game on neutral ground and we're screwing up. Kinda like OSU football. 

dubjayfootball90's picture

these refs are comical as well

RedStorm45's picture

No ADV or Loving this half.

Braxton2Devin's picture

Honestly what the fuck. Terrible basketball. 

RedStorm45's picture

Holy shit we look pathetic

southernstatesbuckeye's picture

It'll be ok. 
It will always be ok.

Braxton2Devin's picture

I guess that's our mantra, until we lose

Braxton2Devin's picture

Matta really prepared the guys for the 2nd half

Braxton2Devin's picture

And now we're down 6. If we dont score soon, ball game.

rihmds80's picture

Wow!!! What the... Wow?!?!

officeroso's picture

boy are we being exposed
 
 
 
 
 

Braxton2Devin's picture

Just like the MSU game. ESPN's gonna have a blast 

Braxton2Devin's picture

Ok now the game is over

dubjayfootball90's picture

wow, this is a clown show.

RedStorm45's picture

Again...fucking NORTH DAKOTA STATE beat this team.

Braxton2Devin's picture

This team -- coaches and players -- should be ashamed of themselves. Had a 7 point lead at the half. We finally scored just now for the first time in like ten years. The team we are currently playing is not ranked. 

johnblairgobucks's picture

nobody should be ashamed of themselves, when they are trying their best.  

Arizona_Buckeye's picture

We're getting the shit kicked out of us by some bumbling doofus with a homeless man's beard!  I've seen enough!

The best thing about Pastafarianism? It is not only acceptable, but advisable, to be heavily sauced

dubjayfootball90's picture

There is still plenty of time, but man have we played so freaking bad

ScarletNGrey01's picture

I was at the Delaware game and told my daughter afterwards I was worried about the ND game.  The bucks just get into offensive lapses sometimes.  When Lanzelle Smith is ohfer we are in big trouble.

officeroso's picture

This is why we get no respect............... wow..... it will be tough at work, are you serious ND no less

Braxton2Devin's picture

CAN WE MAKE A MOTHERFUCKING BASKET. HOW THE FUCK CAN YOU WIN WHEN YOU CANT MAKE A FUCKING SHOT FROM 2 FEET IN

Scarlet_Lutefisk's picture

It never fails, when the shift key gets stuck 'we' goes out the window.

RedStorm45's picture

Q looks like crap.

Braxton2Devin's picture

Great. OSU will now add basketball to it's list of teams that garners a national perception that it can only blowout shitty teams, and then choke when they play halfway-decent to good teams.

Arizona_Buckeye's picture

We obviously earned it - especially tonight.  Perhaps getting utterly embarrassed and a week of listening how overrated they are will ignite a fire in their ass because they look pathetic and are playing like they only had to show up and put out an olea and get their win.

Why is ADV trying to tip it in?

I fucking hate notre dame

RedStorm45's picture

We're so offensively challenged without Tank. Going to be a long season.

hspbuy1's picture

Will we score 20 pts the 2nd half?

Go1Bucks's picture

Tough to keep offensive rhythm when the offensive officiating keeps interfering with it. These new rules suck...

Go Bucks!

dubjayfootball90's picture

hahaha, 15 points so far this half. WOW. Talk about a potent freaking offense. Pathetic...

Deadly Nuts's picture

Doesn't help that our entire lineup is in foul trouble... at least Toledo is undefeated.

LEBRON

Braxton2Devin's picture

Don't use that "foul trouble excuse" bullshit. We are getting outcoached and outplayed. Matta didn't prepare this team for the 2nd half, our players cant shoot, and we are just flat-out terrible right now.

Deadly Nuts's picture

You can't play to full potential without your starters. It's obviously a problem when you're in foul trouble.

LEBRON

RedStorm45's picture

17 points this half???

RedStorm45's picture

Ball game.  We are terrible.

dubjayfootball90's picture

you got a kid dancing on the three point line with the clock running down. What do you think he is going to do? Come on...

sivaDavis's picture

Paging LaQuinton Ross. Anyone seen a LaQuinton Ross?

I think I'm gonna just watch Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown.

teddyballgame's picture

damn. 
no offense tonight.

Go1Bucks's picture

we're not getting out coached, outplayed maybe.
the foul trouble did have something to do with it early, but the lack of shooting or someone wanting to step up and drive the lane is our problem now.  hell craft needs to stop assisting and start shooting

Go Bucks!

bucksfan92's picture

This is beyond unbelievable.  We have played 4 teams better than this garbage ND team.  I cannot believe how the second half has panned out.  Defense went to hell and we didn't make a shot for 9 minutes? what. the. hell?  We should have blown them out to start the secnd half.  I cannot believe what I am seeing.  Just cannot believe it.

dubjayfootball90's picture

This has been one of the worst games I have seen in a long time. Seriously. I am by no means jumping ship, but this game has been atrocious. And that is putting it lightly. An embarrassing showing. Extremely embarrassing...

BlockO's picture

Fire Fickell....

"faith seeking understanding” (fides quaerens intellectum)

Jack Fu's picture

27% shooting in the 2nd half? Jesus.

UrbanCulture's picture

As i said earlier in the year, the team can win any game cuz of its defense, but can lose any came cuz of its horrendous offense

Nick's picture

Pretty disappointing to watch. Can't score the ball in over 10 minutes. Samething happened at times last year. It's pretty plain to see you can't have Ross as the only offensive guy on the court. Put Loving in for Thompson more often or even for Smith.

Go1Bucks's picture

CBJ winning  4 -2...

Go Bucks!

Danify's picture

For now ... after that 3rd period the other night ... man terrible.

RedStorm45's picture

Holy crap. Still going to lose but holy crap

officeroso's picture

sad to say........ if you guard us close, we can't shoot

Go1Bucks's picture

ND always plays well in the garden, like a home game for them.  NBC will be happy

Go Bucks!

Arizona_Buckeye's picture

Perhaps they should cut down on the halftime bong hits!!!

This is what happens when you put Amir on the game day poster!!!!

That was a loooooong five seconds refs

RedStorm45's picture

Would have liked to see Loving this half.

teddyballgame's picture

Why didn't they play like this all night?

dubjayfootball90's picture

you gotta be f*ck*ng kidding me

Ikr...so glad I decided to leave it on and not mail it in...go bucks..woo hoo

C'mom, finish this one out!

good lord what an ending

Braxton2Devin's picture

And now I look like an idiot, and rightfully so.

You're a fan whose passionate about the buckeyes, it's all good bro.

Braxton2Devin's picture

Thanks man. You're right, but I should probably control it until the game is over

Tim's picture

Let's go Lenzelle!

Braxton2Devin's picture

What the fuck Sherman did that!!!!

Tim's picture

Did Sherman just hip check Craft or was it just me?

Braxton2Devin's picture

Well... maybe not. It looked like it at first.

Tim's picture

Ball don't lie.

WHAT!?!?!?

We had no business winning that game.

Let's goooooooo

Hit your free throws Craft.

Mikefletcher24's picture

Take it...go Stanford 

dubjayfootball90's picture

I dont even know any more. Cant believe we won that game. Played terribly. I am going to bake cookies with the fiance. I have no idea whats going on.

Nick's picture

I'll take the win, still stand by what I said though. Can't go 10 minutes in a game without scoring and expect to win. ND isn't a good team, glad they pulled it out.

OSUEXT's picture

Guard pressure FTW. 

Go1Bucks's picture

good teams know how to come back

Go Bucks!

Arizona_Buckeye's picture

I can't believe they pulled that one out... I need a drink since I've already lost 3 years of my life watching this one - then I'm going to collapse

I love Craft. Ran down the floor to shake ND's HC hand. Respect Crafty.

tennesseebuckeye11's picture

Wow, nice to see Notre Dame snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.  Go Bucks!

EddieG27's picture

to play that bad and win against a decent team says alot.. damn

ScarletNGrey01's picture

In the words of John McEnroe "YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS!!!".  Props to those kids, I'm embarrassed to admit I thought is was over when they were down by (something like) 8 points with 40 some seconds left.  Wow, just wow.

chowoon97's picture

Incredible Win!!!

gutterwaste's picture

Never had a doubt.  What, you mean it's weird to get 3 steals and a foul on a three point shot in like 6 seconds?

bucksfan92's picture

Holy Shit!  Nice of Mr. Smith to drop by for the last 30 seconds.  Still not liking the complete crap we saw for 19:15 in the second half.  Where was that energy and enthusiasm to start the half?  Oh well a W is a W.

AngryWoody's picture

How did we win this?

InvertMyVeer's picture

A win is a win! Best part about being 12-0?

Football is complicated...

ShowThemOhiosHere's picture

Good lord people, get a grip.  This isn't football.  Basketball teams will play like crap from time to time, and this team still managed to win.  Some of these comments make me embarrassed to be an OSU fan. 

Class of 2010.

Braxton2Devin's picture

All fans are like this. We have passion, and it's natural for a die-hard fan to get outraged and disgusted when their beloved team is playing like absolute shit. But we can switch in a matter of seconds from being outraged to being in jubilation when our team pulls out an improbable win.

Awesome final minute!
