When you sport grammar of a 6th grader, your whole opinion is thrown out the window. You might as well have sat on your keyboard and clicked "save".
What a great f*cking column. I honestly can't remember the last time I read something so perfectly put. I'm almost speechless, so that's an even bigger kudos.
Thanks for sharing what so many felt but didn't have the words or story.
First off, our fan base isn't exactly "screaming" over this either. There are 23 comments. I think we're all reacting very much like we did over the list you have above, plus some more for obvious reasons. But if you think that there is nothing to this article and there's no smoke or fire, I'm speechless. If this information came out when 8 months ago when things looked to be clear, I'd agree with you. But we're in the heart of the the biggest scandal in tOSU's history, so we're no longer granted the innocent until proven guilty or the "smoke" that some schools might.
There's a big difference between a dealership allowing a customer to drive something home for the weekend and marking it "$0" as a purchase price.
"Nothing is f*cked here, Dude. Nothing is f*cked. They're a bunch of f*cking amateurs!"
Unfortunately, I don't see this as nitpicking when a school is in the midst of sanctions like these. Once the first pieces were revealed, you had to know that more was coming. If it wasn't done by OSU, it was going to be done by the NCAA.
Yes, it happens everywhere. But until the NCAA finds their reasons to investigate others further, it will go as just "assumed" like it has in the past. If there is any silver lining to this, it's that OSU is the first to take a fall like this. I have ZERO facts to support this, but I feel that the NCAA will be going after schools much, much harder and others will experience the same. They might try to button things up now, but the NCAA does more digging than archaeologists and will get what they want.
Again, I have nothing to support this whatsoever - it's half speculation and half hope.
Echoing RBUCK, he couldn't wait til anyone was near the rim. There were 3 seconds left, he had a good look and if he missed (we know he did) it would still give some chance for a quick put-back. It is easy to look at this in a freeze frame but he sprinted down the court to get that look. Could he have passed? Probably, but what he has there is a clean look.
He's taking too much heat for this. I agree that off nights happen, but sometimes players have to shoot through them. Let's not forget that behind Sully's high percentage buckets, WB was had the highest shooting percentage on the team and helped get this team to where it was.
Taking the last shot wasn't a great idea. But let's keep it in context. Had he made that shot, all is obviously forgotten and Buckeye Nation is begging him to stay one more year. And rightfully so since he had the second most points on the team behind Sully. Fact is, he didn't make that shot and everyone needs a person to point to. There's no denying that he had an atrocious game, but let's not act like he's not an important piece to this puzzle and an even bigger piece to Sully developing into what he needs to be.
Like when that OSU fan got jumped before the Sugar Bowl and they started chanting that. "O'Doyle rules!" I'd ask who does that, but I know the answer.
Wait til they get the Internet and start seeing what people say about them.
Haha which basically means - "WTF, do you even watch college ball?!"
Another bracket I did is a little closer to chalk but I do like Arizona and KState to make some deep runs.
tOSU, Arizona, KState and Louisville. This could easily be the year that chalk doesn't prevail. Hopefully that doesn't apply to us though.
Heck yeah he is. I'd watch thumb wrestling if he was announcing it.
See he bothers me even just as commentator. I'd rather listen to Bob Knight break down the play with some insight instead of just screaming like a banchee. We have Gus Johnson for that.
I think the college sports world is becoming too educated to deal with people like him and Digger. I know it's just a gimmick, but it's intolerable. Gimmie more Bilas and Clark.
I O. I will always take a win over scUM but rest wouldn't be the worst thing to happen before the tourney. I believe that the depth argument is a little overdone, but there are 3 freshmen that are probably no used to these kind of minutes.
I don't think that's true at all. It was at one time, but not anymore. Have you seen Buford this year?
Yeah no kidding. I think in their head they're expecting collective gasps when they make the pick.
Actually OSU is giving Purdue 1 point. Sorry...hate to side with announcers.
We're going to have to agree to disagree because OSU was up by 10 on UM and Penn State was in the game the whole time...and leading at one point late. Blowing a lead is different than a team going on a run. Those runs happen all the time (not that you need me to tell you) but OSU blew the lead against Wisky. They allowed open shots and couldn't counter with their own.
I think you're making this a bigger deal than it really is. I'd love to see a win today, but it's on the road against a team that OSU embarrassed - they'll be out for blood.
1. I think that blowing a 15pt lead is awful, but this team has lost 1 game all season. If anyone is thinking "here we go again", they haven't watched this team much. It's not anywhere close to a trend that we've seen.
3. JaJuan is an obvious key but he's going to get his points and he can have them. The main trend that we've all noticed with this team is that they're D is getting soft and it's no secret that our permiter D has some holes.
Personally, I want to see how Sullinger responds - he's looked so frustrated the past few games that it has me a little concerned. Thad needs to help calm that before the tourney.
And the Buckeyes are only 10 point favorites? I took it. If we lose, I'll take the fall.
I had to travel to Boston several times for work and found Game On (at Fenway) is a Buckeye backer bar. It was awesome to be sporting OSU gear, surrounded by people doing the same, so far from home. It's in the lower level of the bar.
