It's funny because on the highlights at the half, they showed Craft's sister knocking down 3's. Hey Aaron, go learn something from your little sister!
SEC! SEC! SEC!
Wait, this isn't football?
I have the scenarios posted here: http://www.elevenwarriors.com/forum/ohio-state-basketball/2014/03/34063/ohio-state-b1g-tourney-scenarios
As far as tiebreakers, we hold the head to head tie over Nebraska, but not over Iowa. In the event of a 3-way tie, Iowa wins, we are next, then Nebraska.
As Patriot4098 mentioned, we can only get the 4 seed if Iowa loses to Illinois and if Nebraska loses to Wisconsin. If 1 out of the 2 happens, we get the 5 seed. But either way, if we don't beat MSU, we are 6th. For me, this is the one year where not playing on Thursday is crucial for us, in my opinion.
I updated the OP given the fact that Iowa lost and deleted the scenarios where Iowa had beaten MSU.
Here is what we need now:
- Iowa or Nebraska losing gives us a 5 seed, both losing gives us a 4.
- Beat MSU on Sunday, or else we still get the 6.
That article was brilliant!
They're continuously competing with Oregon for worst yellow and green uniform of all time. Baylor may have just won it for good.
The difference between the two cases, other than public perception, is that Ohio State and Jim Tressel were forthcoming after the fact. Texas A&M and Kevin Sumlin deny that violations occurred even when the proof is all over social media.
Which is more egregious? Hint: the answer is not Ohio State.
First off, everyone knows that it's the RADIATION that does the most damage in a nuclear blast, not the impact of the explosive force, nor the impact of the implosive force of the resulting vacuum. So CLEARLY the large quantity of lead that was obviously lining the refrigerator was more than enough to combat the massive scale of radiation that would have permeated the entire area, and since radiation dissipates instantly, especially in large scale quantities, it would be perfectly safe for him to get out and leave without so much as a scratch.
Speaking of truthiness...
I couldn't tell if this article was for real or if it was a joke...
Agreed, and is probably the most likely to happen, too, if we can beat MSU. This would mean Wisconsin beats Nebraska (probably) and that we beat MSU (50-50), and that Iowa doesn't drop both of their games (almost for sure). Then we end up drawing Purdue for the Thursday game which sets this match-up. If we win, we probably end up against UM, although any of the bottom 6 (besides Purdue) could end up being the 8 or 9, and I wouldn't put it past scUM to drop that game. So really, the entire tournament is a giant crapshoot.
That could be the most glorious app ever conceived! Or it could be terrible, really depends on the quality of the scent, really. Good looking website, though, very well done. Just the way I like my bacon.
I hear a certain basketball arena is supposed to be torn down soon (did they ever really decide its fate?). I propose that the new armory be built upon the site of St. John's arena. Imagine Skull Session in a friggin' castle!
Wouldn't be the first time we strung 3 good games together though... @Wisconsin, @Iowa, vs. Purdue was a good stretch. Of course that was immediately after losing to PSU at home, and immediately before losing to scUM at home. So maybe the odds are against it happening again, but we'll see how things fall.
I tend to agree about not losing to them for a third time. Winning against the same team 3 times, regardless of how good or bad either team is, is almost unprecedented. That being said, my only real hope is that scUM doesn't win it, and if we are the ones to knock them off, bonus points. I'm going to halfway cheer for Nebraska, except when/if they are playing us, just for the sake of hilarity.
Funny that when you posted this, I was in the process of writing up all the possible scenarios at the same time. Ha.
I second BlockO -- I'm ready for football.
Assuming we get past the first round, as a 6 seed we match up with MSU in most scenarios as the three, and since they seem to be limping into the tournament, that sets up a game against Wisconsin as the 2, and we beat them at their place. They'll bring their A game but they're certainly beatable again. Then we're in the finals against the winner of UM and Iowa/Nebraska and if UM gets upset, we have a good chance of winning it all.
If we are the 5 seed and make it past the first round, we'd match up against either Iowa or Nebraska. Iowa would be a tough game but Nebraska, I think we'd handle. Either way I like our chances here. That leads into a game against UM in the semifinals, and that could be ugly, but it's scUM, so we'll show up.
If we are the 4 seed, that means Nebraska was the 5 seed and again, I like our chances beating them when it counts. This also leads into a game against UM in the semifinal.
Being a 6 seed is our easiest path to the finals, but as I already said, we have to go through the worst fan base in America to get there, and it's really a scenario I'd like to avoid. Regardless, we have a decent shot at a good run.
When we lost the revenge game in Happy Valley, it broke my spirit. I don't think I could bear the agony of losing a third time. Now, I do think we'd beat them if we played in the tournament... but beating them there isn't going to shut them up, and losing, well, I don't like to think of the consequences given their fan base. Do you remember when we lost the NCAA title game in both sports to Florida? The mocking was palpable. Multiply that by 100 and you get what PSU would do if they beat us a third time. So yeah, I really want to avoid the match-up. And yes, it is a sad day that it has come to this this season...
GIANT ROBOTS, MURDER/DEATH/KILL, AND LOTS OF EXPLOSIONS
Let's hope that they remember to include a plot this time. 0 for 3 so far. Also, Shia LaBeouf's acting is like nails on a chalkboard, so good riddance. Thanks for ruining Indiana Jones, jerk (although the whole crystal skull aliens thing certainly didn't help either).
Yeah, I'd like to see these numbers alongside the defenses they were running against. The B1G may have been bad last season, but they play defense. The SEC did not play defense last year, and I'm not sure how the Big 12 compares to the B1G. The ACC was a joke in that category. The point about Carlos Hyde not getting to play against the cupcake part of the schedule is also valid -- lets redo these numbers with the 3 weakest defenses faced taken away for each (to make it 10 games each).
I think you missed the intended humor.
Also, there are probably people out there that might think the skull was the virus, especially since the article fails to mention anything whatsoever about the skull. Was the virus found in the skull? Was the skull a fossil dated from the same period as the virus? Could the virus have killed a human/neanderthal similar to the one represented by the skull? These questions are not answered. The skull literally has nothing to do whatsoever with anything written in the article so it's use is a little suspect. I felt like making fun of them for the fact was appropriate.
Is that kind of like a walk-off home run? As in, the walk-out linebacker takes the field, and you can stop playing now because we won the game. The other team might as well just punt it and hang their head in shame.
No offense, but Jack in the Box is disgusting. I ate there a few times when I was stationed at Ft. Campbell and will not ever again.
Whataburger isn't bad... went there a lot down in Texas, but they are slow. And their food is kinda greasy. I found myself ordering chicken strips more often than burgers there, the burgers just didn't smell or taste right to me. Their main competitor is Dairy Queen Brazier drive through franchises (in Texas, there's an impressive line for both on Sundays at lunch time and their non-dessert menus are strikingly similar) and the rumor is that you can ask for 10% off at the window at Diary Queen and they'll give it to you. I only had the nerve to do it once and they honored it.
Personally, I'd rather not have either in Columbus, we have too many competing establishments as it is. Wouldn't mind a few more Sonic's in Columbus, given the volume of advertising we see for them.
That's the official state of Texas/G.W. Bush pronunciation for "Terrorist". Don't mess with Texas.
When GameWorks (RIP) first opened at Easton, my friend Paul won a Crazy Taxi tournament there and won a dreamcast before they were officially released. That game was fun but I sucked at it.
