Buckeye in Illini country's picture

Thought it would be a long time before I ever saw Nebraska ranked or seeded ahead of OSU in basketball or football.

Columbus to Pasadena: 35 hours.  We're on a road trip through the desert looking for strippers and cocaine... and Rose Bowl wins!

Can I just say WHAT THE HELL, iLLINOIS?? What were they doing, playing "let's run out the clock" with a 1 point lead and 50 seconds left? They acted like they didn't even need to score there. Play-not-to-lose kills you every time.

I love Craft and will miss him next year, but I rarely recall seeing an athlete...at this elite level show no progress and actually, make that significantly...REGRESS as a shooter over a 4 year period.  To shoot a basketball like he does from the perimeter points questions at him....and his coaches.  You can't blame this solely on Chris Jent's departure.

@Route4Buckeye.  Ohio State is 10-52 in last 4 games from 3-land.  And 1-8 today.  You honestly believe we are better off shooting out there? 

route4buckeye's picture

Absolutely not. It's like giving up the running game in football. If you don't attempt, the defense will key in. I'm not saying shoot 20, but Lenzelle and Ross and the only two that should be shooting outside of the arc... Lenzelle sparingly.

I stopped watching when they were winning. I could see where this is headed. Matta basically lets them do what they want on the court. This team plays dumb, EXTREMELY dumb.

That is great - you know PI - noW do you know jump shot......BINGO!

@Route4.

We can agree to disagree.  When Braska goes zone, they are GIVING us the 3.  They know we can't make it.  Everyone does.  I don't think they extend to guard it either.  Which is why are the drive lanes are blocked.  And shooting more won't extend their D.....

Diebler didn't exactly light it up from 3 point range his first couple of years and I'm sure he had alot more playing time than ADV. Great comeback. They limited Nebraska's drives to the basket in the second half like I said they should and they started chucking up shots at the end of the shot clock.
