Russell hasn't done anything to warrant showboating. Actually there's nothing he could do that would warrant showboating. Make a good play and get ready to make another. When flopping and getting the call is the most significant thing you accomplished all day, it's time to reevaluate your priorities. He didn't play anywhere close today to the way he played in the 2nd half against Louisville.
I'm not trying to bash him, he's an incredible talent, there's just a little bit too much "look at me" in his game and personality right now. He's still learning and he could end up being one of the greats when it's all over.
There were 2 OOC games I looked forward to this season. What a disappointment. The only positive might be that we didn't lose either of these games by 20 or more points. The zone did nothing to make UNC uncomfortable on offense. They're not a good 3 point shooting team and they didn't have to be today. The zone should have been packed in to deny passes to their bigs, but instead, we extended out to deny outside shots leaving the inside vulnerable. I just don't get it.
UNC is trying to let us win the game and nobody is taking advantage.
Russell has some growing up to do. I didn't like the little dance after his flop and he still mopes around too much when things aren't going his way.
Can't play defense for only 30 seconds.
He's been forcing everything.
DRuss with the flop
UNC finishes every drive for the and 1. OSU can't buy one.
I'm beginning to see a pattern between my Buckeyes and my Bengals. They both wilt under the bright lights.
I was going the Bucks could get back into it and get the UK fans on their side, but I just don't see it happening.
Maybe it's a good thing we didn't play Kentucky today.
Trey pushes off everytime on rebounds.
Can't keep getting beat down the court.
Looks like a 2nd half Louisville effort will be needed again today.
Nobody is shooting the ball. They're all just throwing it at the hoop.
They're forcing UNC's bigs to shoot from 8-10 feet but they're not missing.
I wish it was next Thursday, but I'm pretty sure we have to wait a little longer than that.
Winning will speak volumes.
That was a waste of 2 hours. Someone named Scooby! Really??!?
The Buckeyes will be wearing the same kit, but with white jerseys instead of scarlet in the Sugar Bowl. As the No. 4 seed in the playoff, Ohio State will wear road whites throughout.
This is in the article and makes the most sense. Just like in the NCAA tourney, the lower seed is always the "away" team.
Totally classless and Manziel do belong in the same forum topic.
His penalty happened in the first half of the game, the punishment was missing the rest of the game. If it had happened in the 2nd half, he would have to sit out the 1st half of the Sugar Bowl. He's available for the whole Sugar Bowl.
I really want to watch the first half since our electric went out an hour before gametime. It came back on right before halftime. Thanks in advance Buckdubbs007.
