  • SPORTS MOMENT: 2011 Sugar Bowl. Not a dull moment on that trip. From the long, long car ride to all kinds of activities on Bourbon Street. From dominating in the first half, to thinking we'd blown it, to realizing we had won. From mockingly chanting "SEC" in the first half, to hearing Arkansas fans chant it right back in the second, to getting the last laugh ("F Mark May" chants included).

Haha, after crunching the numbers, and with a p value of <0.05, the data is statistically significant for SUCK

Yes, I agree.  I think they heard all of the backlash they were getting and are now overcompensating.  I (obviously) pretty much follow only the Buckeyes and so I can't speak for other teams, but I don't remember the last time we got this much love from their analysts and writers.

As long as the punishments are more consistent than the NCAA!

Agreed.  A guy from Texas may not have fully understood what The Game means....I think he probably understands that now.  And is coming with a vengeance.

I'll take 2013:

Joey Bosa, Dontre Wilson, Vonn Bell are guys who have already made impacts on OSU football

EZE, Cameron Burrows, Darron Lee, Chris Worley, Eli Apple, Tyquan Lewis are all soon-to-be starters or are fighting in the 2-deep

Jalin Marshall, Billy Price, Michael Hill, Gareon Conley, JT Barrett are guys who I fully expect to make noise in a year or two (along with a few others I did not name)

Eskimo kisses?

For as much as Amir Williams gets ragged on, I don't think he's the main problem on this bball team.

AW came in as a 5 Star McDonald's All-American, which typically means fans expect you to be a star right away.  He was anything but a star, he was extremely raw.  Having watched just about every Buckeye basketball game over his career, his improvement from year one has been huge!  He's actually becoming one of my favorite players, mostly because he is showing tremendous emotion this year, which was severely lacking.

The statistics back that up as well

  Minutes FG% FT% Rebounds Blocks
Freshman 6.6 53% 36% 2.1 0.8
Sophomore 16.5 56% 56% 3.9 1.4
Junior 23.5 60% 68% 5.8 1.8

 

Against teams that were ranked when they played the Buckeyes, here are some stats:

Marquette - 2-2 FG, 3 rebounds, 5 blocks, 4 points

Michigan State - 3-3 FG, 11 rebounds, 3 blocks, 8 points

Iowa - 4-7 FG, 6 rebounds, no blocks, 11 points

Wisconsin - 3-6 FG, 6 rebounds, 1 blocks, 9 points

Iowa - 5-6 FG, no rebounds, 1 block, 12 points

Michigan - 3-4 FG, 7 rebounds, 1 blocks, 7 points

 

tl;dr 

I think your anger is misplaced, because AW does contribute to the team.  Your anger should be directed towards the fact that, despite being in a game where EVERYTHING was called as a foul, the Buckeyes 1) did not give the ball to Ross 2) did not even drive to the basket

Appreciate it.  I thought there would be a page with only Buckshots.
