"ladies everywhere heartbroken"
Man here, checking in. My man crush is now taken. I'm also heartbroken.
It would appear the Ohio State abusement park is adding another ride.
You're a true bro. You're giving your buddies
a chance an excuse to drink with you on a day where the Buckeyes don't play.
Congrats on getting married as well; that's sort of important too.
This is wonderful news for both students (it really was a blessing to feel like you could talk to someone so powerful and influential as your University President) and the University (I'm not even going to begin to list the things he's done for this University).
Honestly, I think everyone here is just confused about having two Ohio teams in the same sport, be good at the same time. Should we be mad at each other? Should we hope for a split? Should we rub it in other states' faces? This is most weird indeed.
Bad boy Craft? I'm not sure my body is ready. Swoon
I think Ross is not only starting to gain confidence, but he legitimately looks like he's having fun out there; which is fantastic news for his game. Before he looked either afraid to make a mistake or that he was taking every second on the floor like it might be his last for some reason. He looks looser, and it's really showed up in his shot, his drive, and even his ability to defend. Keep it going Q!
I'd be fine with this. Every time I come back after graduation I would still be able to #swoon.
Also, can people please stop getting upset at Craft for taking the last shot? Seriously. The kid's a playmaker and during the game seriously makes most of those jumpers. If Deshaun can get a shot, obviously got to him, but otherwise there's not another kid on this team I'd rather have the ball with clock winding down.
Deshaun has REALLY turned into one of my favorite buckeyes (I said one of Aaron, don't worry #swoon). He really seems to have matured and developed quite a bit, and I don't know why I find his stories about his child so wonderful. He seems so genuinely happy to be a father; guess it just has to make you smile.
This is probably a reason I'll always be a football fan first, and a basketball fan second.
I've been thinking/worried about this game since last night. We may have the better team, but March is scary.
I like knowing that barring some freak stupidity, in football we beat the teams we have better talent/training than.
I know Craft (swoon) is going to get all the attention for this game (and not unjustifiably either), but did anyone else notice Ravenel having a career game as well? He's usually good for what, 2 points, 4 fouls, and a rebound or two? I've been down on him in the past, but boy did he play out of his mind tonight.
How does Ravenel have a D1 scholarship?
We haven't had any calls go our way this game. It happens.
I would be interested in how our team plays when Amir is in vs Ravenel. It seems (to me) that over the last couple of games Amir seems to give this team more confidence. Ravenel comes in and I feel like the other team makes runs. Not saying that Ravenel is to blame or anything, but I feel like we play much better with Amir on the floor.
Link to the Video Game show? Guess I'm going to be wasting another 10 minutes at work.
I'm sorry, what? Do you watch College basketball? RIII was having one of those nights where he was making 3's over DOUBLE TEAMS WITH A HAND IN HIS FACE. Lenzelle Smith should have been called for SO many fouls down the stretch with how hard he was riding RIII. You can get pissy about the loss all you want, but saying Matta's team can't shut down someone? That has to be one of the dumbest statements I've ever heard. Especially in college, there are certain people in certain games that you cannot, under any circumstances, shut down. We've had our fair share of those players in the past few seasons as well (Diebler at Penn State anyone?). Why you heff to be mad?
Unfortunatly, I don't think so. Not only do I feel that Craft has little to know interest playing in the NBA, he'd have A LOT of work to do to even be considered. The NBA is offense driven. Do Coaches like defense? Yeah. But given the choice between the best scoring player in the world and a lock down defender they'll pick the former every time. The NBA is set up to be about outscoring your opponent...not shutting them down. As much as I love Craft, his skillset would not translate very well to the NBA.
If he could consistently put down shots like he was in the first half of this game all the time? You might have an argument. But as of now (unfortunately), he's a great defender who has the ability to go on scoring runs; but often doesn't.
I'm not entirely sure what the hate is for Rodgers? The man pretty much lives up to the underdog/"wrote off" story that America usually loves. I've seen nothing out of Rodgers that I can even remotely dislike (other than his occasional tendancy to hold onto the ball for too long). Take this with a grain of salt (I'm a packers fan), but I'm legitimately confused why there seems to be a growing dislike of Rodgers. Is it his success/the media?
Tethering from on the road and Firstrowsports stream is down. Anyone know where else I can watch/listen? (Other streams, straming radio stations, etc)
Someone should tell Sam Thompson that the dunk contest doesn't start until the end of the season.
At least we know now (...not that we really didn't before) where we can find more of our offensive production if Craft/Smith go cold.
Perhaps they were told to try and take a lot of 3's because if they need to get points by going inside they know it's a given? Matta seems awfuly relaxed with how many 3's we're taking; especially with how few of them are going in.
Looks like a good kid; and he posts quite the body of work as a great OL. Anyone who's interested in academics (seriously) as well as atheletics is a sell for me.
