Love the jerseys. I was scared they were going to mix and match the shorts and jerseys but I love the all grey look. They should use it full time.

Sorry let me rephrase. We should make them our permanent 3rd jersey, replacing our current grey ones.

Okay for 1 game. Keep the current grey. Only grey uniform I ever liked.

Ditto!  This is a "move ahead" or "no, you're who we thought you were" game.  Well.  I'm hoping we're not who they all thought we are.

I don't know if I would go that far.  They beat MSU at MSU, so losing wouldn't indicate that we aren't very good by any means.

I need help anybody know a good website that will be streaming the game online?

GoBucks!

 I got a virus , my only, thru firstrow.  I used to like them but no way I'd touch them now.  Nothing good is for free..  You can buy the Paul Keels, etc $1.99 radio broadcast thru 971thefan which is the Dispatch.

He has lost some confidence in this big bad conference play. I think he is forcing it too much. Just needs to do what he was doing initially. Relax and let the game come to him.

Don't give shooters a reason to flop

Deadly Nuts's picture

So your saying not to contest a shot? If you get any where close they do something stupid to sway the refs.

LEBRON

Optimistic Buckeye Pessimist's picture

There's a big difference in contesting a shot and charging a shooter wildly and out of control. ADV was out of control there. 

Deadly Nuts's picture

He stopped in front of the shooter... When a shooter kicks his feet into the defender it should not be a defensive foul.

LEBRON

+1 HS
Optimistic Buckeye Pessimist's picture

No he didn't. He ran into his "shooting space"

Which was expanded by him pushing his legs out

Waiting for Dakich to talk about how he would take Craft anytime on his team and be the first player he would take.  He usually likes to say that about 5x a game when he's calling a Bucks game.

He was yapping about that during the Iowa v. ttun game too.

We were great in transition that half. Gotta hit the boards hard in the second half, continue to push the pace and look to get the ball in the paint in the half court.

Stop settling for threes, and attack.  The crowd went morgue-like, too.  Get the energy back, Buckeyes!!

AngryWoody's picture

I feel like we should be winning by more, but this is what happens when you give up 7 offensive rebounds. If UM comes out shooting a little better and getting second chances we will lose.

Ralph Waldo Enarson's picture

I just love the small but potentially consequential plays like forcing them to use two timeouts on inbound passes.

Idaho Helga's picture

Looking at the rest of the schedule, this win is a key.   Keep it up Bucks. I'd like to see  a  pull away. Amir is playing well from what I hear.   GO BUCKS! 

GoBucksOSU's picture

I would love to see the Bucks win by double digits but will take any win.

TMac's picture

By one works for me!

Seattle Linga's picture

TTUN will let us shoot the ball - we have to hit them 

Seattle Linga's picture

Tooooooooo many offensive rebounds were giving up

rdubs's picture

Have to keep going to the rim.  They haven't been able to stop us inside, and our shooting is not our strength.

How are we about to be down in this game?  WTF

A few bad plays by craft there. Relax out there. 

Ralph Waldo Enarson's picture

This is so frustrating. They're playing decently well but just can't pull away.

Offense just isn't consistent enough and the rebounding is killing us.

Seattle Linga's picture

They need to be more aggressive all around

Driving to the rim on offense, Rebounds on D!
