Comment 03 May 2014

I am very excited/ terrified to be graduating tomorrow but the last 4 years have been filled with memories I will never forget 

Comment 23 Apr 2014

So this 2 minutes and 38 seconds were all I needed to see to make sure I find someone to buy me a set of student tickets for next year since I am graduating in a week and a half and cant do it myself any more:(

Comment 31 Mar 2014

Yeah I was pulling for sparty too for the same reason. Also I really like Tom Izzo... I have no idea why I do but I just have a lot of respect for a good coach like him. I was mainly rooting for the arena to collapse in the UK vs scUM game. Then Wisconsin vs Arizona didn't really matter but I like Miller so I was sorta rooting them I guess. Conference pride for 1 out of 3 teams....

Comment 30 Mar 2014

Unless Williams, Mcdonald or Bell really develops (or we somehow land Turner) I think we should go small. It has worked for us in the past and gives us a better offensive line up that will run the floor. I would love to see the line up be 

1:Scott  2:Russell  3: Thomson 4: Loving  5:Lee

I have a feeling this is the line Thad will have to turn to late in the season like he did with our small line up last season

Some of the best defense I have seen from OSU this year because a healthy MSU team is a very very good team. Q played one of his best games of the year and I thought Thomson played really well too cause he was tasked with guarding Harris (MSU's best guard) for the majority of the game. 2 things will continue to bother me though unless OSU can quickly change their habits. 1st is the missed free throws because 2-8 down the stretch is awful and 19-31 overall isnt very good either. Also Williams inability to catch the basketball on rebounds or post feeds cost a few extra turnovers. Fix those 2 main problems and making it to the sweet 16 and even further seems realistic but if those problems persist we will be knocked out quite early. 

Comment 24 Feb 2014

I think arizona's size would be problematic and that UNC is the most inconsistent but one of the best teams in the country. Virginia would be beatable and just limit McDermott and we would have a good chance. I think we could easily beat NM, Baylor or SDSU from what I have seen. They all have problems holding onto the ball which works in our favor so we can get out in transition

Comment 22 Feb 2014

As someone who has played basketball all my life this video is even better then the football one. (Had i played football my opinion would probably differ but I love some good OSU bball highlights cause I know that sport inside out compared to football) 

Comment 21 Jan 2014

Smith has been playing horribly and I think Thomson should be starting over him. It would give us more energy, height, and someone who is more of a natural 3. Having Kam Williams redshirt really hurt our depth and I feel like he could have been someone who would provide more offense. Loving should probably be playing more minutes with his ability and it seems like he is the only other player for OSU besides Q who can create offense on his own.  

I would like to see a line up of Craft, Della Valle, Thomson, Q, and Loving. This would give craft a lot of offensive weapons to kick it out to because 3 out of the 4 can hit shots and Thomson can slash to the hole fairly well. Unfortunately this line-up would be pretty weak defensively but it could be a line up worth messing around with.

The main reason for this losing streak in my mind is Scott and Smith have both been turning the ball over much more frequently and havent been forcing as many turnovers as they were at the beginning of the season

Comment 22 Dec 2013

Craft is a better on ball defender but Scott is better at help defense and playing the passing lanes. Either way they are both incredible defenders but each has there own strengths. If I had to choose I would take Scott because its rare to have great help defenders like he is whereas I have seen some fairly great on ball defenders (not quite as good as Craft but close)

Comment 12 Dec 2013

I think our defense is great  but I am not sold on our offense yet. I think long athletic teams that play zone will really give us trouble. Even though MSU lost I would still say they are the team to beat in the B1G this year. They just look like a more complete offensive and defensive team thus far. Hopefully we can split the home and home with them and hopefully we drop less other games then them to win the big ten title this year

Go Bucks

Comment 09 Nov 2013

David Lighty because he was far more versatile and could guard the other teams best player no matter the position. Craft is a great on Ball defender but he isnt that great at help side d compared to Lighty

Comment 08 Nov 2013

I think LSU covers but probably comes up a bit short losing by a field goal. I am really hoping that I am wrong though and that Les can pull off the upset

Comment 23 Oct 2013

I gained a bit more respect for Penn State after seeing the how that chant came about. This game has always been one of the biggest for me (My dad is a Penn State grad) due to the family rivalry but I guess I wont cringe as much when I hear the We Are chant from my dad and all the other Penn State fans I see on Saturday. That said I hope we beat them 70-0 

Comment 01 Oct 2013

I feel like Peterson is more likely to leave for a job like Texas before USC. I think either Jack Del Rio or Jon Gruden for USC but more then likely it will end up being someone who isn't even on this list 

Comment 30 Aug 2013

So happy that my home county is one of the few smart ones in NY that is grey

Comment 28 Aug 2013

This schedule is set up pretty horribly from the stand point of a student because Maryland is the night before finals and MSU is the Saturday of spring break so even though we would love to go to those games it really isn't feasible 

Comment 04 May 2013

I unfortunately root for Penn State because my dad and almost his entire side of the family grew up around there and went to school there. I was brainwashed for a while into rooting for them as a little kid. So I have a soft spot for them and I feel like those players have sorta been given the shaft by the NCAA so I feel for them and the coaches

Comment 25 Apr 2013

Its great to see how much Sam Thomson has really become a mature basketball player both on and off the court. He is quickly becoming my favorite Ohio State basketball player with actions like this and what seems like a good head on his shoulders. 

Also I wouldnt be surprised if Simon was drafted a bit higher then projected and some team just falls in love with his work ethic and motor and ends up our first drafted player 

Comment 17 Apr 2013

I believe shortening the shot clock would make the game more about 1 on 1 offense and less about team offense and running your system. I personally would hate that because then it would become like the NBA where it seems like no one plays solid defense. I would have no problem removing 1 TV timeout per half so instead of a break after every 4 minutes of play it would be after every 5. This would also cause coaches to have use their timeouts more often in the first half because of less TV timeouts which speed up the 2nd half of games

 

Although seeing Bo Ryans reaction to a shortened shot clock could end up being the greatest GIF ever so there is always that to potentially look forward to
