I think any comment that classic should be upvoted.

It looks more like he got the "T" for taunting afterward than hanging on the rim.  In any case, this wasn't the last play of the game, and didn't cause the overtime to happen either.  There was more basketball played after this call.

Gonzaga versus Duke should be a fun game to watch, so that's what I voted.  

Comment 22 Mar 2015

You can go back several years and pick out names each year of top Ohio players that didn't stay home.  

Wisconsin is a good example this year with Nigel Hayes and Trevon Jackson, and Michigan State has Javon Bess and Travis Trice, and Michigan has Caris LaVert.  Those are just guys that are on current rosters that are from Ohio, and I may have missed some others as well.  

Those are just the names that come to mind without giving it much thought.  There are lots more of Ohio's top talent that OSU either didn't get signed or that Thad didn't even recruit.  

I guess you can give a DV if you don't agree but that doesn't solidify your argument that OSU hasn't missed out on a lot of Ohio's top talent, some that Thad didn't even recruit because he apparently thought that they weren't good enough, but who had above-average careers despite that.  

In my original comment I didn't say anything about Thad Matta being replaced.  To the contrary, I think his teams have always improved from the start of the season to the finish, and if you look at my comment history you will see more than one time I have said that.  I would absolutely want to keep him as coach. To argue that Thad hasn't missed out on some of Ohio's top talent is untrue, though.

True, but my point was that OSU won the CFP and Oregon did not, even though they can lay claim to winning a game in the CFP and a game in the NCAA in the same year, they cannot lay claim to winning the CFP and winning an NCAA game in the same year.  Now, winning a CFP game and winning more than one NCAA game in the same year, well they have a shot at that and we no longer do.  

Just playing around with you on a minor point.  Not hatin'....

Comment 21 Mar 2015

It is ironic that so many top-notch Ohio players do not go to OSU.  Look at Wisconsin's roster for just one example out of many.  It would be one thing if the Ohio talent wasn't good enough, but it is pathetic that OSU misses out on so many who go on to be CBB stars or at least above average players.  

Comment 21 Mar 2015

Sweet pass no doubt.  Had Patient Zero somehow been able to score his average then the game might have turned out differently.  Bad time to have an off-shooting game, but it happens to every player.  It was nice having him for a season and I wish him the best going forward.

"First program ever to win a College Football Playoff game and NCAA Tournament game in the same season!"

With Oregon in the NCAA and in the running to tie this mark, OSU apparently set another record today.  We can also lay claim to the first team to win the CFP and win an NCAA Basketball Tournament game in the same season as well, one record which Oregon cannot tie.  

Comment 19 Mar 2015

The clock was a factor, agreed.  Two seconds is enough time to get close to the bucket, or pass closer to the bucket and still get a shot though.  

If he had made it I would have called it cold-blooded and gutsy, I would admit that.  Just thought we could have gotten a better shot there.  Not a big deal, but Sam is just a smidge over 25% from beyond the arc for the season.  

Survive and advance is what it is about about, so not going to argue the result or the minute details, because the outcome works for me.  

Comment 16 Mar 2015

I haven't seen VCU at all this year.  I have no idea how OSU matches up.

Matchups are important in any game, and even more so with this particular OSU team.
