Also creates the possibility for an all B10 natty, and whether that was UM/MSU or UW/MSU we would get a hell of a basketball game.
Is everyone missing the fact that the B10 has the opportunity to become the first conference since the Big East in 1985 to put three teams in the final four? I really wish one didn't have to be Michigan... but we don't see this often and I'm kinda pulling for it.
It's pretty clear that the play is dead based on the other OSU players reaction and the refs position. I'm not of the opinion that fun things should be ruined by logic and facts though.
If Amir makes the same jump next year as he did this year percentage wise, we'll be watching him average 16 and 9. I know I shouldn't be optimistic, but...
Edit: There was plenty of contact. No call for some reason, and a sad end to the career of my favorite OSU basketball player. DAMNIT.
I really wish refs wouldn't be so hesitant to call fouls on last second drives. Michigan last year, MSU in January, and today? I haven't seen the replay, but I turned off my tv with the thought in my head that if craft is in the middle of 2-3 people in the lane, how does he get a shot up without any contact?
Amir spends a solid 75% of his floor time at or near midcourt
The only time I get a comparable feeling to the one I get when I watch Michigan do anything is the feeling I get when LSJ catches the ball on the 3 pt line, confidently gathers himself, and fires up a brick.
No doubt in my mind we are a lot better than this UD squad. Just have to keep our foot on the gas.
Every game from here on out could be Craft's last, and he looks like he knows it and is gonna do as much as he can to play as long as he can. I'm gonna have a hard time not tearing up when he walks off for the last time.
Solid reference to the Thad Matta quote on the back of Titus's book? Or just coincidence?
We need Scott to continue playing amazingly. Him at that level along with Craft is a top 3 backcourt pairing.
LSJ shoots with such confidence... does he know he's horrible at it?
"They smell blood" I love it, keep attacking them.
UM would be down 4 to UVA right now and they've played 16 more minutes
Shannon Scott has to get as many mins as possible this half. I think the main lineup should be Craft, Scott, Thompson, Ross, Williams. We need the length and athleticism the way they're spacing us on D, and Thad is out of his mind if Scott isn't out there 15+ minutes this half.
I'm a lot more surprised we managed 37 in a half than that we allowed 41 in a half
Has to be single digits by half for me to be comfortable
KEEP SHOOTING. IT WORKS FOR US TOO.
What a start. Is it too early to turn it off and give up hope?
This topic legitimately saddens me. Over though, I'm really not afraid of Nebraska or Michigan in the B10 tournament.
The world cup when it rolls around, college basketball in march,and the summer olympics in that order.
We're gonna win the big ten tournament
I said this on a forum post the other day, but it's going to be hard to watch these two walk off the floor as losers for the last time because for the past four years they have been anything but.
