Repeat after me Q....Catch and Shoot
Our defense was great, but they were playing pass the ball around on the perimeter until 10 seconds left. They rarely went into the paint and when they did they scrambled right out.
I loved the grit OSU showed at the end, but you also have to give credit to MSU....the last 7 minutes they played the Clock not the Bucks in their Prevent Offense (Much like the Browns Prevent Defense)....had they continued to attack we would have lost by at least 10 in regulation....it was a great game and worthy of a top 5 match up minus they awful officiating
Luckily...championships are own in March and sometimes April
Yep...I commented exactly that to a friend because he pulled his jersey over his face he was so upset and all his team went on twitter and defended him.....never just 1 play that loses you the game
HOLY FLOCK a FOUL and not a TRAVEL!!!
We can't go in the paint without getting mugged and YOUR upset with officiating Izzo.....I'm not saying Izzo is the biggest whiner in the Big Ten...but he has the face for it.
Wouldn't be a game if Amir didn't lose an easy ball and be called for a moving screen!
Marc Loving reminds me of what we expected Q to be as a freshman.
I loved last year's rivalry uniforms, and check me if I'm wrong--but we haven't ever been beaten in our rivalry uniforms evening going back to 2011 Whisky game with the rivalry unis.
Having said that--is it me or do the white pants look like (as the media loves to say), "Big Boy" Diapers--let's just say when they get dirty--it's going to look like we s*it our Big Boy Diapers--so I am definitely a "No" on the pants.
OSU Men's BB win it
As a member of this site, woman with a PhD who teaches Statistics and Research, and happens to have grown up sitting on her dad's knee watching Keith Byars score touchdowns at The Shoe, I thought David Pollack's statements were flawed for many reasons--if he wants a committee of people who can "watch tape" and analyze teams--you are talking about one of the most intelligent woman in the country that has shown the ability on multiple occasions to be a football fanatic and tactician. David, you want the committee to be players and coaches--people "around football"--please show me how many women have been given that opportunity to coach, play, or be ADs. I tend to be the most knowledgeable Buckeye Fan amongst my friends and family thanks to this site and my dad's tutelage, and I would be disappointed if people with David Pollack's "perceptions" deny Condoleezza Rice an opportunity on the committee based on flawed logic.
Why does the team I hate always chose my Buckeyes!!!
I actually changed into the outfit I wore in Dayton for Iona game at halftime because I thought that might help.....I am wearing dirty clothes to do my part:)
This feels like we have the refs from the Syracuse game last year
Where did he go.....where's the play by play guy.......CLASSIC:)
I was in the arena with my family for Craft's shot wondering why he waved off DT until I saw that #31 was guarding him (Mr. I am going to ram into @ the TV timeout to show you how tough I am) and then the arena erupted and there was Craft waving at everyone to go play defense. The arena was electric OSU and IU fans going crazy.....with 2 ISU fans sitting next to us walking out before the clock hit zero...... and watching the ex-MSU player walk off the court without shaking hands .....IU fan saying "that's why he doesn't play for Izzo" (Of course, after the towel fight in the MSU huddle and the PSU Payne-Dawson roommate brawl--I don't know)
I also remember the Ron Lewis shot because....we had missed the whole game and walked into the nearest restaurant to try to see the end and we walked right in for his shot and the whole place erupted....I think we got a round of drinks from it for a promise that we wouldn't leave until OT was over, which I like to call the Mike Conley show
But still love the Buzzer Beater by Evan Turner on Youtube with both OSU and UM announcers.....funniest clip ever....
Actually you can re-watch the game on CBS, because being in the stands I had no idea about the charge call issue until I heard about it from a friend. It also showed the player ramming into craft before the time out. It look like Craft said...C'mon man...then #31 threw up his hands when he saw the ref coming his way like "I didn't do anything" then tried to walk toward Craft again...wasn't sure to say he was sorry or to talk more shite but ref got there first...after the break the ref went right for #31 to "talk to him" again....I think had anyone been guarding Craft, but #31 at the end he would have given it up to DT, but when he saw the switch and #31...Craft's competitive nature took over:)
I was in Dayton for that shot and all I thought was Craft shot over the guy that rammed him when they were walking back to their benches......KARMA is B#tch #31
Luckily, I already had 5 tickets to Dayton:) Go Bucks!!!!!
CONGRATS OSU MEN!!!!!!!!!!!
Now it comes down to foul shoots for us and 3s for them
