Here we go, Buckeyes!

"The height of human desire is what wins, whether it's on Normandy Beach or in Ohio Stadium." - Woody Hayes

Should be a great game. 
It may be a bit much to expect a win up there but I really want to see continued development of the things that will hopefully take us far in March, namely improved shooting, Amir Williams playing aggressively (on offense and defense), and liberal use of our bench players. 
If that happens and a we happen to lose a close one, I will be cool with it.  Pull out a win, that would be marvelous. 

BuckAlum09's picture

I just read that A. Payne (MSU) limped off with an injury during warm ups. Can anyone confirm?

What's all this then?

"...and when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of booze. And we'll drink to old Ohio till we wobble in our shoes."

FROMTHE18's picture

we have to shoot well, we wont outrebound them so hitting jumpers and not missing easy looks have to happen

dubjayfootball90's picture

and one of the first things I hear:
 
Lets be honest, Ohio State has not had a tough schedule.
 
Ball Washing bastards

chokingonabonehoke's picture

Dakich just said that OSU has played a weak schedule. Lets be honest. What has Dakich done as a coach to criticize anyone? He got fired from the mighty Falcons of BGSU. Wow. Great insight moron. I miss Bobby Knight

UrbanCulture's picture

He is exactly right.

rdubs's picture

I mean we haven't played more than 1 or 2 decent teams.  But no one will care if we win the B1G because there are a lot of good teams in the B1G to show how good we are.

Braxton2Devin's picture

Dakich loves him some Craft

Braxton2Devin's picture

If only we could shoot like they do

FROMTHE18's picture

Amir and Q the clumsiest starters in the B1G.

dubjayfootball90's picture

oh man, and another early problem with Amirs' hands

chokingonabonehoke's picture

Feel like Appling and Payne have been there for 10 years

RedStorm45's picture

Lenzelle bails out an otherwise terrible possession.

Knarcisi's picture

Lenzelle is so much better when he drives first rather than shoots outside first.

RedStorm45's picture

Need to take advantage of Payne's absence. Triche may not play either. Use that bench Thad and wear them down!

UrbanCulture's picture

No movement from the 4 and 5 positions results in craft Scott and lenzelle throwing it around the perimeter the whole possession

RedStorm45's picture

Dakich, stop talking about Indiana!!

dubjayfootball90's picture

wtf, GET OPEN. RUN!!!! MOVE!!! bunch of freaking statues out there

RedStorm45's picture

Pathetic on the out of bounds.

BuckAlum09's picture

That might be the first 5 second violation in Thad's tenure... I'm dead serious I can't remember that ever happening.

"...and when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of booze. And we'll drink to old Ohio till we wobble in our shoes."

Braxton2Devin's picture

God everything is going MSUs way...

RedStorm45's picture

THREE TURNOVERS come on fellas

Braxton2Devin's picture

I will not be able to live if MSU beats us again

RedStorm45's picture

Amir showing emotion?

RedStorm45's picture

STOP JACKING UP THREES

dubjayfootball90's picture

get williams out. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!!!

Tim's picture

Catch the ball, Amir!

BuckAlum09's picture

Wow Amir... Just wow...

"...and when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of booze. And we'll drink to old Ohio till we wobble in our shoes."

RedStorm45's picture

AMIR????!!!!!! %#+**%**}

Braxton2Devin's picture

WIDE FUCKING OPEN. WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING. TERRIBLE HANDS

OSUStu's picture

Wow Amir...come on

Knarcisi's picture

Amir's hands are back
 

UrbanCulture's picture

Lol Williams. First team with a dominant big man in the tourney likely knocks us out

HYDEYOKIDS's picture

Someone needs to start making moves and scoring inside...

el duderino's picture

How did Amir mishandle that pass??? That would have been the easiest 2 points ever (potentially).

I thought Payne was out

RedStorm45's picture

And now Payne is in. Awesome. Here comes the pain.

RedStorm45's picture

Holy crap hit a layup

Braxton2Devin's picture

Goddamit everything is rattling in and out

BuckAlum09's picture

Gonna be one of those "All Lenzelle" type of evenings

"...and when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of booze. And we'll drink to old Ohio till we wobble in our shoes."

RedStorm45's picture

OMG WHAT THE HELL ARE WE DOING

el duderino's picture

Good news is we're playing like crap and still in this.

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

Braxton2Devin's picture

Refs need to call a FUCKING FOUL

UrbanCulture's picture

Thompson...the struggle continues

cdwcub's picture

Exactly. Payne is reaching over everyone. Such BS

CDW

teddyballgame's picture

Sloppy play so far from both teams lol

dubjayfootball90's picture

wow, i was tense that entire series. Go craft!!!

RedStorm45's picture

Do we know how to hit a layup

Tim's picture

Craft saves another basket.

This is why we love Aaron. Shows more heart than anyone else

el duderino's picture

HOLY AARON CRAFT. How did he run down that break??

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

BuckAlum09's picture

I'm going to miss #4

"...and when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of booze. And we'll drink to old Ohio till we wobble in our shoes."

sharkvsghost's picture

cool, it's going to be one of those games where you get to tackle people in the paint. #B1G

swing hard in case you hit it.

RedStorm45's picture

These teams are supposed to be top 5? Yikes.

HYDEYOKIDS's picture

I am in awe wow Craft.

Deadly Nuts's picture

Give that guy a trampoline! How the hell did he miss that dunk?

LEBRON

el duderino's picture

One Word: Craftiness.

Here's how you don't wear a shirt and tie combo - Dan Dakich

"...and when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of booze. And we'll drink to old Ohio till we wobble in our shoes."

RedStorm45's picture

Why is Dakich on the floor? What the heck is going on?

Braxton2Devin's picture

Fouls. Fouls galore

dubjayfootball90's picture

keep mcdonald in, his hands would nullify any offense that williams f*cks up, jeez o man

RedStorm45's picture

No travel on Appling?  Ok...

el duderino's picture

Nice D!!!

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

BuckAlum09's picture

Yes... Dakich just used Carte Blanche in relation to pressure defense.

"...and when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of booze. And we'll drink to old Ohio till we wobble in our shoes."

RedStorm45's picture

McDonald>Williams.

dubjayfootball90's picture

Dude, Mcdonald is showing some heart and aggressiveness out there.

el duderino's picture

Beautiful rebound and putback by Slam.

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

RedStorm45's picture

Tre McDonald or Dallas Lauderdale. 1 second left with a FT to win it. Who do you take?

el duderino's picture

Shaq: "Free throws are hard."

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

teddyballgame's picture

Lol who is controlling the score.  They're goofing left and right

Braxton2Devin's picture

Wtf! These refs are calling fouls when they should play on, and aren't calling them when they are clearly needed

BuckAlum09's picture

Why take McDonald out?

"...and when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of booze. And we'll drink to old Ohio till we wobble in our shoes."

Knarcisi's picture

We are scrappy.  I like it.

DLJad's picture

If only John Wooden could have learned the game from Dakich.

Braxton2Devin's picture

Smith doing too much....

dubjayfootball90's picture

why do we leave a wide open perimeter shooter when we are all back on defense?

RedStorm45's picture

We are terrible in transition D picking up the 3 point line.

BuckAlum09's picture

That was Lenzelle being lost on defense due to waiting on a foul to be called on the other end.

"...and when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of booze. And we'll drink to old Ohio till we wobble in our shoes."

Knarcisi's picture

Loving can stroke

BuckAlum09's picture

Sam Thompson is terrified if he gets the ball anywhere besides midair on the way to a dunk... Watch him.

"...and when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of booze. And we'll drink to old Ohio till we wobble in our shoes."

dubjayfootball90's picture

the ball is just rattling in and oput

Braxton2Devin's picture

Dammit that was a great shot

RedStorm45's picture

Our half court offense is pathetic.

el duderino's picture

Still no fouls being called in the lane...

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

RedStorm45's picture

What the hell are we doing

dubjayfootball90's picture

oh wow, terrible offense, jeez

Josh P's picture

Running the clogged toilet offense to perfection
 

HYDEYOKIDS's picture

We have to start moving the ball inside not just passing along the arc

RedStorm45's picture

No ADV. Q has been absent.

SavannahBuck's picture

I see MSU is employing the hack a buck strategy, and the refs are letting them do it

Knarcisi's picture

Wondered how we would handle a good D.  Hope this isn't the answer.

FROMTHE18's picture

getting exposed a bit just like vs MSU in the B1G title game...if they drop the Just Like Football chant, they wont be far off.

el duderino's picture

Eh... are you watching the same game? They have not jumped out to any huge lead, and the game has been pretty evenly matched on both sides. Not really at all like the B1G title game.

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

dubjayfootball90's picture

well damn, this first quarter has been flying by. We need to shoot better, and the rim has to get kinder. If that happens, watch out for a significant run...

UrbanCulture's picture

Thompson thinks way too hard when he gets the ball

BuckAlum09's picture

He's definitely visibly uncomfortable 

"...and when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of booze. And we'll drink to old Ohio till we wobble in our shoes."

DLJad's picture

Since our bigs are soft, we may need to go small and push the ball. Once their d is set, not good for the Bucks.

Go1Bucks's picture

Terrible non calls under the basket for the bucks

Go Bucks!

RedStorm45's picture

Combined shooting 34%. Offensive clinic haha

Go1Bucks's picture

Gotta get in their face on
 the 3 pt line. Only reason msu in this so far

Go Bucks!

PittBuckeye's picture

I can't handle a loss by an Ohio State team right now, so I'm confident they'll win. It's a coping mechanism.

dubjayfootball90's picture

i hate when these time outs come so close to one another

Josh P's picture

Wait... we're only down 2?  Judging by everyones comments I'd be expecting a blowout.  No cause for worry yet MSU is struggling with the same things we are.  

Knarcisi's picture

Typical B10 grinder

Deadly Nuts's picture

I kinda like what we are doing right now... Waste 25 seconds a possession then get a stop. 

LEBRON

HYDEYOKIDS's picture

I agree this could be much worse

Osueddy's picture

Did Amir do something to Dakich's wife? He is riding Amir relentlessly. 

dubjayfootball90's picture

nice movement by smith

PittBuckeye's picture

I can't watch this game, my girlfriend insists dance moms is more important. I only get to see the score, and contemplate ways I could knock her unconscious.

dubjayfootball90's picture

tough luck bud. Dance Moms pisses me off.

BuckAlum09's picture

MSU will be back in zone immediately after that back door to Smith

"...and when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of booze. And we'll drink to old Ohio till we wobble in our shoes."

Braxton2Devin's picture

Fucking bullshit!!!! That's a foul on Payne!!!!

nightmuse's picture

Wouldn't be a game if Amir didn't lose an easy ball and be called for a moving screen!
 

dubjayfootball90's picture

oh my god, get Amir out. HE CANT HOLD ON TO A BALL!!!!!!!

teddyballgame's picture

Amir has stonehands. :(

Mute's picture

Holy crap Amir get out of the game

skid21's picture

Never bounce pass to Williams

Braxton2Devin's picture

I swear to God, if I was 7 feet tall, I'd be better than Amir. I feel like he was just really tall in high school and therefore was better than everyone else

RedStorm45's picture

What the heck was that?

dubjayfootball90's picture

oh wow, this is getting rough

Tim's picture

Not sure Della Valle can play in a game like this...

Osueddy's picture

Better to find out on January 7 than later.
 

DLJad's picture

ADV needs to take a seat.

FROMTHE18's picture

amir is the pittsburgh brown of the Ohio State basketball team. Hype coming in, High school all american, never developed. 3 years, dude has to have figured out at least something about d-1 bball.

Braxton2Devin's picture

What the fuck is this team doing!?!?!?!? Lets turn it over a little more

Go1Bucks's picture

They arent callin shit

Go Bucks!

Knarcisi's picture

Amir being called out for being soft

dubjayfootball90's picture

holy hell. 9 turnovers, 9 to 3 for MSU

Braxton2Devin's picture

Getting exposed.... I'm so done with our overrated OSU teams

Go1Bucks's picture

Cut the bs comment

Go Bucks!

Braxton2Devin's picture

In what way is it BS? I love OSU just as more as anyone else, but I'm a realist, and I'll be the first one to admit that our football team was extremely overrated. I never wanted to believe it, but after the way the season ended, I can fully admit it. We blew out alll the scrub teams, and got punched around by the teams that were actually good. Now, our basketball team is playing in it's first tough game of the season, and we scored a measly 21 points in the first half. A #3 ranked team in the country should not play as badly as we did offensively

CRAFTFORTHESTEAL's picture

Wisky did the same thing against Iowa on Sunday and scored almost 50 in the second half and won. So don't sleep on them, this isn't an easy place to play either, wins don't come easy in East Lansing.

Pay It Forward!

Braxton2Devin's picture

You were saying? Dumbass....

skid21's picture

Announcers on on Amir's dic...errr...back

Osueddy's picture

Nice. +1 if I could.

Deadly Nuts's picture

I've never seen a team get away with more bullshit than MSU besides Dook.

LEBRON

Go1Bucks's picture

Offense cant get into a rhythm if the officials dont do their jobs

Go Bucks!

Mute's picture

Please just put McDonald in for the rest of the game
At least he tries

dubjayfootball90's picture

wow. I have been an Amir supporter and defender since he arrived, but enough is enough. How has he not worked on his ball handling skills? You cannot be this bad for three years unless by choice. WTF? Why can't he hang on to the ball? EVER!!!???

el duderino's picture

All these comments about the announcing make me glad my wife is making me watch the game on mute so she can get work done.

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

UrbanCulture's picture

Another empty possession yaaaayy

Braxton2Devin's picture

Seriously what the hell. These refs need to call a foul!!! They are fouling Craft every time he gets to the baseline. Home cooking

Tim's picture

Lousy end to the half, let's at least get a stop here though.

DLJad's picture

What a surprise. Wind down the clock to a crappy shot or to.

RedStorm45's picture

This is so bad. What the hell are we doing???

Tim's picture

Double T for Izzo?  Do it refs.

Josh P's picture

Prime example of Thompson not having any clue what to do when he isn't catching an alley oop

dubjayfootball90's picture

at least we stopped the possession. Jeez our offense was putrid that half

Go1Bucks's picture

Friggin officials, crooked half

Go Bucks!

Mute's picture

Amir has single handily kept 6-8 points off the board for OSU

Braxton2Devin's picture

My god this is disgusting. Thad needs this team to improve, because this team sure as hell won't win any National Championship with 21 fucking points in a half. That's laughable.

skid21's picture

Wow, with all the crap MSU got away with Izzo is throwing a hissy? GMAFB
 

Buckeyes44's picture

Just like football. 

Skull

DLJad's picture

I admit to liking Izzo. He did not take the repoter's bait.

AkronBuckeye13's picture

The announcers might as well have said it: Michigan State didn't play Stanford football against North Carolina.

Buckeyes44's picture

Amir is just plain bad. 

Skull

CCatanzaro's picture

"What about the officiating has you so frustrated?"
"A LAWT!!!"

Dairy-fed intellect and pure, unhinged sass.

 

skid21's picture

Smith and Loving need to quit taking bad shots, Amir needs to grow a pair and the entire team needs to quit turning it over.

DatDudeSA's picture

Smith only ome being aggressive ill take it and loving is 1-3 splashed a three and had another rim out the last shot was almost a shot clock violation...sam thompson needs to do nothing but dunk and yes amir is not good against decent teams.

"fear is an obstacle to some people, but it is an illusion to me"––Michael Jordan.

skid21's picture

Aggressive sometimes=taking bad shots and that is the case here IMO. One good shot and 2 VERY bad, rushed shots which costs us 2 possessions. How many times did Loving touch it vs. how many times did he shoot?

Mute's picture

Football team is all offense no defense
Basketball team is all defense no offense

mtgerken's picture

For being one of the best defensive teams in the country we have some soft players! Body a man up for the love of the game! Dakich is tearing Amir a new one and I agree with him 100%

Joys which death alone can still,
Matt

dubjayfootball90's picture

Same, his game is becoming laughable...

skid21's picture

I agree. I complained about his slow decision making with the ball earlier this season and got ripped a new one for not appreciating his improvement. Huh??

RedStorm45's picture

Q has 3 points. AW is a no show. Where is Scott? Wake the eff up.

el duderino's picture

Man, we got some salty fans here. We're playing on the road against a top 5 team and only down by 7 after playing like crap on offense the whole first half?
I'll take it.
We'll get some shots falling (and fouls called?) in the second half.

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

TheShookster's picture

Not saying OSU should be winning, because they shouldn't, but both times Payne scored he travelled. And he travels everytime he has the ball.

Deadly Nuts's picture

He also pushed off of Williams after he traveled and then scored...

LEBRON

RedStorm45's picture

Yeah, he switched his pivot foot about four times haha

TheShookster's picture

Even Lebron would have been called for it!

nightmuse's picture

We can't go in the paint without getting mugged and YOUR upset with officiating Izzo.....I'm not saying Izzo is the biggest whiner in the Big Ten...but he has the face for it.

OSU069's picture

Ross has only took 2 shots. We need to get him some shots.

HYDEYOKIDS's picture

I don't understand why Loving and Q aren't setting up inside or at the high post and looking to score inside. They are playing right into the zone State is running. When they know we can't pass inside we are very easy to defend against.

thowen79's picture

Izzo looked like he was going to cry

mtgerken's picture

Why did we take out Trey and Loving? Only guys producing and we pull them!

Sparty isn't 100% and we're not trying to exploit it at all.

Picksixx's picture

-Amir is lazy and has hands of stone. I cringe every time he touches the ball.
-Outside of a couple of times we didn't rotate defensively on a couple of perimeter shots I thought our defense was fantastic.
-10 turnovers. That's the reason why we're losing. Can. Not. Turn. The basketball. Over.

BuxFanKC's picture

I think Amir should sit the rest of the game, but just watch him come out and get some crucial buckets and a block or two. It always happens, just when I am fed up with him and yell his name in misery, he does just enough. 
We gotta stick with Q and Lenzelle for a little while. Refs could call a foul in the lane too. 

Picksixx's picture

Izzo believes Sparty has never committed a foul ever.

Am i the only one who doesnt like Lenzelle Smith?

Yep. he is not consistent enough, but has come through many many times in his career and always works hard. 

Deadly Nuts's picture

Why? Because he is our only source of production in this game?

LEBRON

skid21's picture

No. I can 't say I don't like him but I think he is a selfish player. There I said it.

Braxton2Devin's picture

I like Dantonio and respect him, but he needs to stop BITCHING to the refs about a game that is CLEARLY going MSU's way!!!

BuckAlum09's picture

Yea I kept my mouth shut on your overrated comment but now I just have to ask you if you're on drugs.

"...and when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of booze. And we'll drink to old Ohio till we wobble in our shoes."

Tim's picture

Sure, Scott just lost his feet and traveled.  We believe you, refs.

RedStorm45's picture

A TRAVEL??? ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME

Bucki1978's picture

How did Dantonio miss out on Payne?  I think he has a better chance to play defensive end in the NFL than he does of being a power forward in the NBA.

RedStorm45's picture

He's like 6'9" so...

UrbanCulture's picture

Terrible transition offense and missed layups

Braxton2Devin's picture

A FOUL!? Against MSU? Dantonio is livid!

BuckAlum09's picture

...izzo?

"...and when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of booze. And we'll drink to old Ohio till we wobble in our shoes."

Home cooking at the Breslin Center.

BuxFanKC's picture

Hohhot...that's a foul! Not when Scott gets tripped, but when craft slaps the ball. Wow. 

RedStorm45's picture

Go fuck yourselves refs you incompetent idiots.

OSU069's picture

Doesn't seem like we are getting any calls

Go1Bucks's picture

So the calls OSU wasnt getting on that end are now being called for MSU. Typical bs
i dont mind losing, but i like a fair game

Go Bucks!

Mute's picture

Can't fucking watch this
 

RedStorm45's picture

WHAT. THE. FUCK. 

Tim's picture

Can't drive if nothing is a foul and everything is a travel.

Knarcisi's picture

A game when we need Ross as a go-to.  he needs to assert.

Braxton2Devin's picture

Every single call is going MSU's way. Bad shooting + bias officiating= a loss for the Buckeyes

skid21's picture

WTF was that? Another Buckeye just tripping over himself again? These refs suck. I need to cry like Izzo.

nightmuse's picture

HOLY FLOCK a FOUL and not a TRAVEL!!!

Tim's picture

Look how hesitant the refs were to call a blatant push.

RedStorm45's picture

Woah woah two in a row???

RedStorm45's picture

This is the worst officiating I've seen all year. Easy.

mtgerken's picture

If we could Trey back in that would be great!

Joys which death alone can still,
Matt

RedStorm45's picture

We have a high school offense.

OSU069's picture

Jump bal!!! What the fuck

HYDEYOKIDS's picture

That was the worst call i have seen yet

skid21's picture

Seriously? We are playing like crap but these refs are ridiculous.

OSUStu's picture

Didn't think they were going to call that.

Travel in the NBA? Your posts have been slightly off all night man

RedStorm45's picture

TRAVEL REFS. THE CALL YOU ARE LOOKING FOR IS TRAVEL HOLY SHIT

Braxton2Devin's picture

Izzo whines more than a 5 year old girl

skid21's picture

Who travels more than Payne?

OSU069's picture

And another phantom call leading to that 3

Tim's picture

I'm so confused as to the rules of college basketball.

RedStorm45's picture

Another empty possession. Thanks Amir.

What the fuck is with these off the ball fouls!!!!!!! IT JUST FUCKING LED TO A 3!!!! This game is home cookin!

So down 5 with the ball and we get called for an away from the ball foul when nothing really happened and now we are down 10. These refs are amazing.

SavannahBuck's picture

Tom Izzo will go into the hall of fame...as the biggest whiner ever in the B1G...guy cries more than any coach ive ever seen

Mute's picture

I'm 1 or 2 more no calls or phantom fouls away from turning this crap off

BassDropper's picture

Michigan State is the new king of the B1G. Sucks to see a dominant Ohio State era end (although we only won 1 NC in either sport)

DIRECTIONER

teddyballgame's picture

I see you working hard for downvotes.  Have an upvote.

BassDropper's picture

Not my intentions at all. Try to look at it objectively and tell me they aren't running the B1G right now. Dominated us in football and now dominating us in basketball

DIRECTIONER

Qujo's picture

Take your talents to east Lansing then. The entitlement crowd needs to go. You be one of them. Ohio State takes no back seat to MSU much less any other B1G school. Are we going to lose once In awhile? Yes everyone does. So don't let that door hit that fat fucking ass on your way to the state of fucking clowns.

Their student section is 90% dudes.

SavannahBuck's picture

Id say at least 4 of the turnovers were fouls on Michigan State...Of course they arent called

Tim's picture

Wow that was dirty from Payne.  Forearm to the throat/head.  Come on.

Braxton2Devin's picture

Of course they don't call SHIT when it's in MSU's favor. 

RedStorm45's picture

No Loving and no ADV this half.

JakeStevensIsSwag's picture

great play Lenzelle. Turning it over leading to a 3..

Buckeye fan from PA

teddyballgame's picture

This atmosphere is nuts.

skid21's picture

That 3 is on Smith

RedStorm45's picture

Well the football team's karma has carried over. This is pathetic.

Braxton2Devin's picture

And im Done. This is laughable. We are shit. 

OSU069's picture

Ya we are shit because we are losing to a top 5 team  on the road

Braxton2Devin's picture

Yea, we are shit because we have only scored 36 points, can't box out, can't make a shot from 2 feet, and because we are losing by 14.

OSU069's picture

And Ross hacked 3 times

SavannahBuck's picture

does Matta teach boxing out?

mtgerken's picture

We suck......

Done. This team blows.

This is good, and Michigan State cant miss, but damn these refs are light in our favor

WHAT IN THE FUCK GOES ON AT AN OSU PRACTICE!?

RedStorm45's picture

That first putback was goaltending but who cares at this point

HYDEYOKIDS's picture

Officiating terrible. No one can score inside, they know it and are hugging the arc. Now our defense is getting tired...

Picksixx's picture

Horrific ball movement and shot selection

GABuckeye's picture

We have way too many sissy girls down low.  We need a real big guy.  We also need a new offense because this is terrible to watch.

RedStorm45's picture

Missed on bigs the last two years. Paulus took over the offense.

Tim's picture

I hope we blow them the fuck out in March when we play them at home like we did to Wisconsin a few years ago.

OSU getting dominated by Michigan State and the refs. 

Jdadams01's picture

All of you saying Izzo cries more than anyone? Take a look at our fan base. We are spoiled brats sometimes. How about we stop saying "we are done" over our teams because of one loss.

RedStorm45's picture

Our lack of an above average interior presence is going to kill us this year.

Braxton2Devin's picture

OK I can't even blame the officiating anymore. We just flat out suck balls right now. Like I can't even explain how shitty we are. I have never seen an OSU bball team play this shitty in years. We just look like a bunch of athletes throwing a ball around and praying that it falls in the bucket. 

Powers's picture

My god people we don't suck! Yeah we're not playing well tonight but losing to a rival on the road is going to happen. Settle down and realize the regular season in college basketball just isn't that important anymore. Get better over the rest of the season and play our best in March.

Mute's picture

This is the OSU offense I was expecting to see this year unfortunately

teddyballgame's picture

LMAO what is herbstreet wearing.  
 

Griffin8545's picture

Long time follower of 11W- finally made an account.  This game is disheartening...not because it is looking like  it will be our first L of the season, but because it just seems like so many of our players don't play with the intensity and effort that you would expect in a game like this.  That you would expect from Buckeyes...

RedStorm45's picture

One of like 5 big games and half the team has no heart.

RedStorm45's picture

Can't tell which ticky tack fouls will get called and which aggravated assaults won't.

Braxton2Devin's picture

What ever happened to Ross being our scorer?

OSU069's picture

Craft is having an awful game regardless of the officiating 

skid21's picture

At least we get a chance to play them at home. Tired of the disappointments with Buckeye teams in big games but I'm hoping we get a big win soon to take away the sting.

Braxton2Devin's picture

LETS LEAVE THEM OPEN FOR 3 SOME MORE!!!!!!!! GAME IS OVER.

mtgerken's picture

This is so bad. How were we ever ranked this high? Does anyone other then Craft and Scott wanna actually play?

Because he definitely said "Fire Matta or Fire Meyer".... I haven't seen anyone say that, you're just using a straw man. 

Hayze's picture

No not really.
I'm just making fun of the overreactive negative nature of some OSU fans.

BassDropper's picture

I would keep Matta, but fire Meyer.
I dont think Urban is a 1/10th of the coach he was at Florida. James Franklin is on the market, and while I know Ohio State would never do it, I would go after Franklin.
I think Matta is the best Ohio State can get.

BassDropper's picture

I do honestly believe that Ohio State is no longer the King of the B1G. You can't convince me even if you tried. We can't become Michigan fans and live in the past. This season and this past football season are what matters. 

DIRECTIONER

Hayze's picture

Agreed. It sucks that Myer let the Glenville trio go the Kentucky.

Picksixx's picture

We have about as many turnovers as the number of times our defensive backs don't look back for the ball on a long pass.

The lack of big game wins at Ohio State recently is so depressing as a die hard fan!

I didn't expect them to win this game, but I expected a better effort than this.

Fickell is responsible for this somehow

Deadly Nuts's picture

It's impossible to win if the opponent is making every single shot they take. No matter the skill level.

LEBRON

RedStorm45's picture

They're making half (not every) shot because they're wide the eff open.

RedStorm45's picture

The first half was there for the taking. Boys weren't ready.

Mute's picture

Well, at least it won't be god damned Wisconsin handing us our first loss a la 2010

Braxton2Devin's picture

Is it just me or do we choke in every big game?

Buckeye Chuck's picture

If you define "big games" as only those we lose, it's easy to feel that way.

Stunning poor officiating tonite. Hope the B1G addresses this.  
17 turnovers on a team that averages 4/5?  Seems to me... Something stinks in msu land

Go Bucks!

DLJad's picture

Dantonio runs drills against the basketball team to make his football team tougher.

wyatt's picture

I blame Gene Smith for the easy schedule. Unrealistic practice games only.

Mute's picture

Isn't Matta primarily the one who schedules? It's equally his fault

Jack Fu's picture

This has been my concern all season: I don't see how this team is going to score points against quality opposition. Yeah, if the defense shows up and only allows 35-40 points, a la Marquette, they'll probably win. If that doesn't happen? Points are going to be so hard to come by, I'm really not sure how they can put up enough points to hang around.

Picksixx's picture

In the end it really only matters come March but would have liked to see a much better performance. Offensively we have no idea what we're doing. It's basically been our guards putting our head down and throwing up a shot against two people. And Amir being Amir. Horrific ball movement too

RedStorm45's picture

We have to be the worst D1 team shooting free throws.

Hayze's picture

This I can agree with.

Josh P's picture

God I'm terrified of that game in Wisconsin...

Jack Fu's picture

Oh Jesus, we have no chance of hitting 50 points in that game. It's gonna be embarrassing. 

Mute's picture

It's gonna be just like last year if not worse
I'll say 74-47

RedStorm45's picture

OMG. FREE THROWS. PRACTICE. ITS NOT THAT HARD.

Josh P's picture

Not sure, but Payne might walk every time he catches the ball and tries to make a move.  

RedStorm45's picture

If there was a travel, that means the push happened AFTER he traveled good lord these refs are stupid.

wyatt's picture

Adreian Payne from Dayton has always played great against the Buckeyes.

RedStorm45's picture

All I will say is...58-50. #teamofdestiny?  Kidding lol

Josh P's picture

Why wait this long for Scott and Craft to turn up that pressure?

8 point game. At least making it interesting.

wyatt's picture

If OSU is undefeated and the 3rd ranked team, then the rest of the country must be bad.

SavannahBuck's picture

Yeah, because traditionally its easy to go into the Breslin Center and win B1G games...that makes absolutely no sense

Get the ball back. Down 8.  Can cut it to two possessions after the break.

Knarcisi's picture

Got another ND comeback in us?

These boys can fight...illl give em that

RedStorm45's picture

We're going to lose by like 5-7 and all the officiating gripes will fill in those points.

RedStorm45's picture

Need something here. Wow!!! Slam!

Griffin8545's picture

If nothing else I'm glad we didn't just roll over

teddyballgame's picture

is this really happening? lol...refs won't possibly let us win this.

Good resilience; this is the kind of fight I wanted to see!

Josh P's picture

One more defensive stop... just one more 

RedStorm45's picture

This is interesting. Loving at the 4 down the stretch. Not Q.

Hayze's picture

Lucky the team doesn't quit like some fans do.

Tim's picture

Is that really possession?  He was flying out of bounds.

Josh P's picture

POSSESSED BY WHO

You can't call a timeout falling out of bounds anymore, so you can't possess the ball, right?

We finished on a 20-3 run because of our defense...

Braxton2Devin's picture

But in OT we didn't defend the 3....

Braxton2Devin's picture

Wow.... we really fucked ourselves over with the allowed 3s.... You would think Matta would be in their ears about allowing the 3.... We just kept letting them shoot it.

loving cant do that. had about eight seconds when he took the ball, tried to force it too much, cant do that. kick it back out

Knarcisi's picture

We couldn't come up with a better play than that?

Braxton2Devin's picture

Terrible, terrible coaching decision by Matta. Take Loving out. He had been jittery during the whole OT, he wasn't ready for this just yet. Put in Q or someone else who's proven that they're clutch. Now the game is over

Loving has played better on both sides and shown more energy all night. He deserved to be in.

Learning experience for Loving. It will all be ok. Loving will be a beast come tourney time, then he will make tha type of shot.

Josh P's picture

I specifically remember Shannon Scott missing a similar 3, in East Lansing, last season.  On to the next one, 15-1 isn't bad 

Braxton2Devin's picture

Considering we could've been 16-0, it actually is. 

Josh P's picture

Actually may have been Sammy, better to learn on the road in January than in March.  

nightmuse's picture

Yep...I commented exactly that to a friend because he pulled his jersey over his face he was so upset and all his team went on twitter and defended him.....never just 1 play that loses you the game

nightmuse's picture

Luckily...championships are own in March and sometimes April

Braxton2Devin's picture

Wow... all for nothing. I was so right about the open 3s though. If we hadn't given them up, we wouldn't have been in the position. And also, I was right about Loving. Great player, but he certainly shouldn't have been placed in this position. Put in Q or Smith. Just stupid...

OK, consider this your pat on the back for being "right about Loving." Can you officially shut up about it now?

Loving has huge potential and he's gonna get better. Love the kid. But he had a terrible overtime. Numerous horrible decisions that cost the Bucks huge.
This game was hugely frustrating (Jesus, Lenzelle is just ... not good?) but ultimately encouraging. The pressure a Craft-Scott backcourt provides is absolutely insane. The offense still leaves a lot to be desired though.

We dont give a damn for the WHOLE STATE

I grew up in that state, and I agree. I can't stand their fans. They were even worse than TSUN, with even less relevance. Now that they are actually good, it is almost unbearable.

I can't even be angry. There was a point in this game where I was hoping we would keep it from being a 20+ blowout. That took a ton of heart and effort to battle back in that environment. Close all the way down the stretch. Today this team proved they can hang with the best. Regardless of rankings Mich. St. is a championship caliber team. It was a loss but in the end very proud of this team.

While it is a loss, can't complain about the defense and effort down the stretch. They were down big and never gave up. An OT loss to a fellow final four caliber team is not one to hang our heads on. This team is gonna be a great one. The elite defense is gonna take em far.

Should have put Q back in on the last possession for a 3.

I will take this loss any day, 21 turnovers, had the shot at the end but came up short and should have been called for foul. Oh an this game means nothing, it's only Jan. This will only help the team, and never count the bucks out!

Pay It Forward!

This isn't football and as long as the loss isn't in March or April, it isn't always a bad thing.
 
This team made the comeback it needed to, it played the defense it needed to, but it still didn't get the job done at the end.
 
That's ok, they needed to learn. This is what B1G basketball is. Beat the hell out of eachother and then destroy everyone in March/April. It's basically what the SEC has being doing in football for quite some time now.

They need a 2 to tie, a 3 to win it; Sylvester for threeeee... OOOOOOOOOHHHHHH OHHHHHHHHHHH WITH FIVE POINT ONE TO GO!!!

There's nothing quite like watching Thad Matta steal tax money on a Tuesday night!                   Team looks a bit sluggish early . . . probably had  hangovers from gorging on the "Baker's Dozen" of cupcakes that Thad pads his record with every year.
Love the strategy of banishing Smith and Ross to the pine for their failure to make things happen on their own, with no semblance of offensive sets or plays run for 'em.  
Do your best in the next game young men, 'cause you're doin' it all alone on offense.
