First loss in the Big 10 for Maryland women since joining the conference! Great win!
Really Ole Miss & Bert are the reason Bama is in the playoff.
Bama loses to Ole Miss 2 years in a row and beats them at Bama this year but loses to the Hogs in triple overtime (I think triple) on a fluke play.
If Ole Miss wins, Bama would not be SEC champ.Oh well. Game of inches as they say.
Great job by these young Bucks! Stephen Collier is just a great kid and a class act!
There really is an aspect of the playoffs that has been missed and that is the "Ohio coaching dynamic" as well as the Big 10 coaching influence.
Saban was born in W. Va but played at Kent State and cut his coaching teeth in Ohio and the Big.
Stoops & Dantonio are both natives of Ohio. Stoops playing in the Big, and Dantonio at TOSU as a defensive coordinator and winning a NC there and also doing well at Cincy.
Just saying strong connections to both Ohio and the Big 10 for 3 of the 4 coaches in the playoffs.
It was such a great day to see this team play so hard and with such emotion.
I have watched every game, and yes, there are obvious flaws, free throws make me crazy, but they played with aggression, rebounded and I saw a confidence in taking shots, not the hesitation that has been there all year.
They are young and will be an up and down team, but yesterday was great for them and us as fans!
Great write-up and you have a lot to be thankful for this holiday season and thank you for reminding everyone to take care of themselves.
This team would be above 500 if they made more free throws!
Stop the dumb fouls and turnovers and so hesitate to take a shot when open. No wonder coach Matta is losing his hair.
Thank you for posting this touching video. It was about so much more than just a sports story and it moved me to tears.
Remarkable young woman and family,
The very best looking man in the photo!
Your comments are right on and no one in the media seems to remember that Nick said when he left MSU he just could not compete with TSUN in recruiting.
I always find that funny when you compare to the SEC's recent past. No one seems to recall that or mention it in the media when referring to the "best conference" (what a joke). Could not compete with TSUN recruiting but can in the SEC. Whatever!
Let's turn the situation around and say that Magic Johnson is presenting an award to a Buckeye MVP and this happened. What do you think the response would be?
Love Spiels but he also said yesterday that the Pac 12 was the best conference. Hmmm.
The JH guarantee was aided by him crying to the officials due to the crowd noise. Called penalties on the home team back then.
So right and a stupid technical that really hurt!
Some players love to see reactions to their tweets too and get a kick out of it.
This will get media play, so if he is seeking attention, he will get it.
Or the rebounding!
As a sibling of an autistic brother who passed away from cardiac arrest due to a grand mal seizure, it was a sobering but endearing video of Josh and his wonderful parents.
Unfortunately my brother seemed normal, actually very advanced until around the age of 3, with great verbal skills and a eagerness for knowledge. He regressed horribly and had very little verbal skills but was still understood everything going around him, in other words trapped in his thoughts and reasoning with no to communicate them.
I loved him dearly and he was a beautiful, sweet child who suffered dearly. I was also the subject ridicule and he was bullied also, made fun of and treated poorly.
With saying all the above, my respect for Josh and his family is even higher now as I was aware of his brother's ordeal, and the love you have for your sibling and the yearning to make their life better. God bless you Joshua Perry!
I want to see a solid rebounding team and a team that makes free throws. That has been very lacking and has cost us games.
Me too and it is Joe R (can't spell his last name).
He has a real "thing" about TOSU and has been ripping on them for years. Last year it was they had no business being in the playoffs, etc!
Then you have the high and mighty TUN fans who call with their outrage because they are so superior!
Joe R is a Missouri grad and he got hit by callers with the situation happening there (bet Zeke is even happier he did not go there) but that had to wait until he got done with his Sunday rant about the Buckeyes! He oozes hate toward them and came to work Sunday AM not really aware of the situation at Missouri.
I always thought Missouri was a great academic school until I heard this guy!
I have always thought the delusion to the North was bad but these folks, to the east of Cbus , truly amazing and really quite sad!
I always refer to them as "the children of the corn" as they live in some sort of cult.
They were very fun to watch last year and you just knew if the injury bug had not taken a huge bite out of the team they would have been even better,
They run the whole game and looking forward to watching them,
Maybe Brian has "tripped over his puppy" and hit his head a few too many times.
He is the essence of a man from TSUN..
Also, I think this is the thing that really gets to TOSU fans as TSUN grads, especially on the Mickey Mouse network go out of their way to be snarky and TOSU grads go overboard trying to be fair,
You are so right Rock. Will happen regardless of the amount of wins the rest of the year.
