Buy the ticket take the ride.
Thanks IP - stay aggressive.
Go get'em Cal Poppy - we are behind you !!
It's not a rivalry .............. it's a wreckoning.
Lets see Duane get hot today.

Let's go Buckeyes
Casting BTN2Go to the TV, watching in Sweden.
We got this Buckeyes
IP, I think with tip times 4pm and earlier, I should get my own square ... “KNar watching from Sweden”.
Thats an autobingo for you Knar...what has you in Sweden?
Expat work assignment for my wife. We’re here 3-6 years.
Back at ya, buddy.
Jackson is really a weak link defensively
Stay golden, Ponyboy.
He gambled and didn’t pay off on the open 3. Overall, not a very smart player for what you want in your point guard.
Nice drive CJ!
Washington is bringing it today
Like me some Duane Washington.
Man, these guys can shoot.
Washington has a beautiful jumper.
Just posting and hoping my comment isn’t deleted.
Ring it up for Wash
Washington is the shooter we’ve needed in this program for a long time.
Agreed, he’s going to be a good one.
He’s already pretty good. Lots of camparisons to Diebler but do you remember how bad Diebler was his freshman year?
Yeah he was bad. Wash doesn’t have the size of Diebler but has a great pump fake already and the edge in athleticism.
Diebler was a gym rat. Gritty player, smart kid, son of a coach, a real hustle and effort guy.
Did I miss any?
Kaleb Wesson has improved so much since last year.
Still think the biggest liability on this team is CJ Jackson. He is so jekyll and hyde.
Holtmann is going to have his work cut out finding 5 guys who want to play defense today.
The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.
What a terrible close out to the half. Up about ten and then just stopped playing all together.
Bucknell on fire behind the arc..damn..
This Bucknell team is solid.
Bucknell was blown out at home by Northeastern.
This is the worst 5-minute stretch of the Holtmann era right here. Just utter laziness on both ends of the court.
Gotta close out on these guys or it’s gonna be a long night.
Let’s go Bucks!!
jeeez 12 point run
Jackson is just a liability. He has been an absolute no show for most of this year.
100% agree. Worst shooter on the team....takes the most shots.
39% shooter....just not good.
Disagree. Are you dumping on him because he doesn't meet your expectations?
Our honor defend, so we'll fight to the end !
No. I am dumping on him because of what I see. Poor shooting, blows defensive assignments and a lot of game this season has been a non factor.
He’s not a very smart basketball player.
The turnover on the lazy pass to Mohamed.. the risky steal attempt that led to him overrunning it and then an open three .
Nice shot Woods
I think CJ found the bench, again.
Glad Holtmann continues to be willing to do so. He is not a smart basketball player. And we have other guys that can play.
How the heck do they keep misplacing the bench?!!--LOL!
All progress has resulted from people who took unpopular positions. -Adlai Stevenson, governor, US ambassador
Pretty pathetic defensive effort.
This is definitely where I parked my car.
Buckeye D needs to be a whole lot better. Last 4 minutes awful, including rebounding.
Turnovers high too.
Take away the 80% from 3, very different story.
I wish the real world would just stop hassling me...
Actually only 53%. It only seems like 80.
Bucknell 15-0 run. We've got to continue to pound it inside and beat them on the boards, but not get beat in transition. Get Woods more involved. But obviously have to clamp down on their 3 pt shooters. Need to make their guards earn it.
I'd rather be a minute early than an hour early, 'cause I like to procrastinate.
Last five minutes just zero effort at all especially on defense.
Nine 3 pointers for Bucknell and most of those were wide open. 57 percent from three. Just can’t happen against a team that their only chance to win is to make volumne threes
I bet the Halftime discussion was fun....need to come out firing in the second half
Thanks for the thread and Bingo, IP.
We’ve had a double digit lead so you can X that box. Yeah, it doesn’t feel like it.
I already fixed it although I didnt want to because we gave up 15 straight
Yep, leave it blank on principle.
Fire Thad and pull Lyle’s scholarship!!!
Yes I’m intentionally being dumb
Offense isn’t really the problem. It is turnovers and just no effort on defense.
Absolutely pitiful way to close a half. Why was Woods not in there when they started going on the run? He is someone that always comes in and calms the team down. If the group out there isn't getting it done, change it!
How many games in a row does Jackson need to play like crap before he gets benched?
Same thing happened vs Illinois and Minnesota. Osu just stopped playing the last few minutes of the first half and let both teams make a run. It is become a habit.
Bucknell 9/17 from 3 and only 3 turnovers. Those numbers have to change.
Come on guys where yat defense
Second half start just the same as the end of the first half
Man. Officials are just horse shit as usual
Team is flat. Next 5 minutes will determine if this is a L.
Getting jobbed by the refs at home against Bucknell.
This is something I haven't had to say much post-Matta, but the difference in the movement away from the ball for both teams is really telling.
Buckeyes too tentative on offense. Have to be willing to shoot.
Play some D Bucks!
Each and every possession
You’d better make that shot, CJ.
I got to watch the first 16 minutes of the game while at lunch... Just having time to pull up the score... What on God's green earth happened? We were up 12!
Didn’t close out, Bucknell couldn’t miss, and horse shit sloppy offense.
Yeah... Bucknell could do one thing when I was watching... SHOOT. Don't leave shooters.
Did he say cracked 3 teeth?
Just unreal how one sided this is with the calls
That was a travel
Nice trey Woods
LETS GO MO....stay in the Buckeyes favor.
Woods is money.
I am tired of these refs
edit: Buckeyes are beating Bucknell and the refs
Keep . Feeding . Woods
C'mon boys.... Watching the GameCast on the work PC... Need to finish strong.
CJ has 7 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists.
Meanwhile, the Wessons have 5 of OSU's 10 turnovers and 5 fouls.
Kaleb has 15, 7, and 4.
Contributions from many players. Still need to cut down on TO's.
Let’s go crowd! Get on your damn feet!
There are two people in the Huntington Club better be on their feet. Ticked I couldn't get off so gave my tickets away to some friends.
Andre needs to stop shooting today.
Has Washington been in the 2nd half?
He is in now.
Bucknell in the 1 and 1. Only 3 fouls on Bucknell.
Stupid GameCast on ESPN is glitching the last update I got was 58-52 Buckeyes but then it appeared the last basket never happened.... Score and time anyone?
60 - 56 Buckeyes 9:30 left
Dump ESPN and go to
Thanks for the link... Doing that now. Although... I kind of enjoy following along in ElevenWarriors with my fellow peeps. Will them to victory... That layoff coupled with some sloppy defense has this closer than I would like.
60-56 with 9:38 left
Come on fellas. These guys lost to a 2-8 Fairfield and gave up almost 100 to Northeastern? In a 20 pt loss.
Come on Young you gotta power dunk that
TV Timeout @ 8:00
Buckeyes up 62 - 56
Thanks Seattle! Finish them!
Refs calling nothing on bucknell and everything and then some on osu
He didn’t even hit him
What a flop.
That's a wrap. Give that guy the Oscar.
They're all chickens. The rooster has sex with all of them.
I am not able to watch, but I find it hard to believe that Bucknell is playing sound defense and we are the ones committing fouls at an alarming rate... We have a pretty decent sample size of the Buckeyes and defensively there aren't many who play more sound on that side of the ball. Especially on the perimeter.
They hit many of their open jumpers in the first half. Not so much in the 2nd
Floppity Flop Flop
That’s a flop.
Terrible acting job...wow
Buckeyes need a hoop.
Wesson gets tripped and fallen on and loses three teeth and no call.
But yet osu gets called for a foul with a guy that flopped and wasn’t touched
Flops need to be a technical foul.
I wish I could upvote this!
Yes. NHL gives you a penalty for that crap
Agree. Need to take a stand and get rid of that BS.
If anybody's acting here it should be Paul Newman.
Sestina is a stupid player.
Ok...we get a couple of calls.
You are in the bonus
go to the rim
OSU 1 of last 8 FG.
Bucknell will make the tournament and give a very high seed a ton of fits in round one
They have losses to Fairfield and Northeastern. They aren't very good.
LUUU nice drive
Luther extends the lead to 10 with 5:35 to go
WHY is it that the Bucks play down to teams they should beat handily? Basketballers get 8-10 pt. lead and poor passing and poor shot selection (turn around jumpers??) and the team lose the leads both halves. Their 3pt defense with a couple mins. left in regulation MADE the game close! (AGAIN!) Straighten them out COACH!
Luther is becoming one of my favorite Buckeyes.. I love the way he competes.
K Wesson 9 rebounds, CJ 8.
Outstanding for a PG.
Got a bit chilly, eh Bucknell?
Buckeyes playing better D this half. Bison were shooting over 50% in 1st on both FG and 3FG.
Now whole-game stats show 40% FG and 37% 3FG. One of 10 treys 2nd half.
Get ready for Bucknell to start jacking threes
Andre Wesson loses three teeth.....ouch.
This didn't look good early in the 2nd half. Great adjustments defensively. Stopped giving up open 3s.
Last 3 possessions have been complete shit.
They have been just trying to run out the clock instead of playing offense
An OSU score would be good now.
Needs these now
Jimmy Sotos scored too easily.
Let's make some foul shots Bucks
You can do it.
Osu has a real issue closing out halves and games
We were playing like we had a 20 pt lead. Not 8-10.
This is on you, Holtmann. Shit, lazy possessions from 5 minutes in.
clutch foul shots there
Better find a way to D up
Just an embarrassing effort today.
Crap. Sloppy ball handling.
Leads can disappear in a hurry when you don't make free throws and you confuse "not being overaggressive" with "let's just let the other team score."
Son of a bitch!
Foul them, don't give up 3
I'm so done with Jackson.
They are going to take the three
To no avail!
Take that W!
OSU fortunate to win.
I think I want us to lose so this shit never happens again.
If you want them to lose, then you’re not a very smart person
I’ll take a loss so this shit doesn’t happen again. Ridiculous the laziness and lack of effort that caused that comeback. We got away with it. And shouldn’t have.
But a loss doesn’t guarantee it won’t happen again. I’ll take a close win where it might open their eyes and you still win.
You blow a game like that, you’ll never forget it.
luckily they completely messed it up
That was the ugliest win I've ever seen. Buckeyes completely stopped playing the last few minutes, as if the game was over with an 8 point lead. Bucknell never stopped playing. Bucknell deserved to win that game. Holtmann better be all over this team for their inconsistent effort all game.
Lucky today. Poor effort. A lot of teaching points for the coaches. Can’t half ass your way through games
still a good win. Bucknell are going to win a lot of games this year and are a probable tournament team
Bingo and a win....close and tough, but good win. Bucknell is a tournament team the last 2 years
Wow. Can't believe Sotos or MacKenzie didn't take that shot.
Very poor effort by Ohio State by the offense, defense, and coaches.
Sports in general and basketball in particular is about momentum. Once it's lost it is very difficult to re-gain. I struggle to understand how so many just believe that it's a lack of effort, especially after not playing for 10 days, and never take into consideration that the other team is also trying to win.
It's always great to hang on and win a close game. Go Bucks!
Personally I do not feel that effort was lacking by tOSU, it was just not concentrated enough which is more mental than physical imho.
Bucks need to have the killer instinct when the lead seems comfortable and the win seems "sure". No sloppy passing ever,no let up in D,no poor shot selection when victory "seems" sure. Examples of poor shot selection were at least (2) TWO turn around jump shots taken from poor angles with 8-10 point leads and short time left in BOTH halves.
Get on them Coach H! GO BUCKS!
Thanks for the reply. The truth is that no one is at their best every day physically, mentally, or emotionally. That's especially problematic for athletes who are visible to everyone. The most important thing is to be resourceful enough to find a way to win when you are not at your best.
The win today is, to me, a very good sign for the young Buckeyes. Go Bucks!
