Purdue deciding not to feed it to the 14-foot kid when we're down Young? Bold strategy cotton...

Jackson is truly a bad player. Three turnovers already. 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

Right on cue from Stanley

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

Purdue has a 35 year old playing for them 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

We look freaking awesome out of the gate. Blowout coming.

Fuck eSECpn and fuck Mythigan.

actionstanleyjackson's picture

If this team could get anything out of woods and Jackson might be in better shape. Those two just struggle scoring anymore 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

And are back to being turnover machines

I don't buy one goddam drop of gas in the state of Michigan!

Please sit Woods and Jackson

Andre please show your brother how to dunk! Hopefully the defense can keep this up.

CJ's obligatory 3-pointer that leaves us thinking mayyyyybbbeeee he's going to be good today.

I wish the real world would just stop hassling me...

Jackson scored. I’ll be 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

Keep it up defense! Be nice if we had a home court advantage....

Louie1131's picture

Really like to see LeDee show some growth.

I wish the real world would just stop hassling me...

Louie1131's picture

Andre Wesson... sigh

I wish the real world would just stop hassling me...

Louie1131's picture

Is that 5 consecutive turnovers on offense?

I wish the real world would just stop hassling me...

actionstanleyjackson's picture

This team is just a turnover machine. 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

Louie1131's picture

Lol, as Ahrens passes it directly into Edwards hands.

But at least it was followed by the largest player on our team getting a pass down low and instead of going up strong, trying a fade away for an airball.

So we've got that going for us, which is nice.

I wish the real world would just stop hassling me...

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Well that was fun for a bit. Can’t score. Can’t defend. Turnovers galore 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

actionstanleyjackson's picture

How exactly did this team win 12 games? They look totally opposite now. 

Holtmann is handcuffed. Only talent he has is young and absolutely has no shooting or skill. 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

GlassCityBuckeyes's picture

Glad to see boudreauxs grandkids made the trip to cheer him on.

Noon games suck

RMLogic's picture

This might be one the worst passing teams in all of college basketball. Other teams play freshman that can shoot and pass and OSU has Ahrens and Ledee on the court who cant do anything. It is just a team of players that dont have much basketball skill.

All 3 recruits for next year have got to be better than any of these players 

Louie1131's picture

Have we even attempted a shot in the last 6-7 possessions?

I wish the real world would just stop hassling me...

You only need one more in a row for bingo!

New Day for OSU. Same noon for TTUN.

actionstanleyjackson's picture

18-1 run. I mean I just don’t foresee a win in the near future. Purdue is on the way to running osu out of the gym. 

Team is just not any good.

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

seltsaC's picture

Sheesh, continuous braindead plays on every offensive possession.

keith7456's picture

Every single player on this team is terrified to take a shot.

NorthPoleBuckeye's picture

Seems like another game destined for the loss column. 

TheVictoryBell's picture

That’s absolutely terrible officiating. 

Bucks2K18's picture

Oh my goodness. What is going on with this team. 12-1 to well on the way to 12-6. Ugh!

That's a Buckeye touchdown!

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Team is lost. Timid. No clue at all. Holtmann gets a pass because the only talent he has is just too young. 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

napbuck's picture

How does he get a pass, is it not his responsibility to get these guys prepared to play. How many turnovers did we have where they were jumping in the passing lane and yet Holtman is not smart enough to run a back door screen. I don’t give him a pass at all I think his job should be in jeopardy. Not a single player from the last two years has improved at all that’s Holtman. Team is lazy and not interested. When does football start?

You serious Clark?

I do mind, the Dude minds. This will not stand, ya know, this aggression will not stand, man.

BuckeyeBulldog's picture

Checked score - up by 8
Finished cooking some dinner and sat down to actually watch the game - down by 10 and counting.
This team is bad

TheVictoryBell's picture

Can somebody tell me wtf they are doing on offense? Do the coaches put in offensive sets? The players don’t know what they’re doing offensively right now! 

RMLogic's picture

None of these players except Washington can shoot. Its hopeless expecting some of them do do anything. Not one player can go to the hole or create off the dribble. Its sad how bad these guys are

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Has woods scored at all since the break?

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

BuckeyesAlumSon's picture

Was hoping for a different team to show up. It’s the same one minus Kyle Young, which makes them really bad. Unwatchable. Hopefully they are watchable down the stretch next year. 

SnGinWV's picture

This is tough to watch 

please put Woods on the bench 

Life long fan of... The!

seltsaC's picture

Lord knows how that's not a foul on Harms.

semperfibuck's picture

And why Jackson? One 3... but at least 3 turnovers.

BuckeyesAlumSon's picture

Even Kaleb is terrible now. This team has become laughable. 

seltsaC's picture

Washington & Muhammad should be getting the boat load of guard minutes for this team.

RBloodworth's picture

We’re going to need a lot more than Andre’s Steph Curry impression to get back into this one, but that was admittedly cool.

BeneckeBuck5's picture

Can't make a layup, but can bank a 60 footer.

And Toledo still sucks.

IBleedSandG's picture

Keyshawn should see less minutes than Ahrens

#GrindFor9

ibuck's picture

I don't understand what's wrong with Keyshawn Woods, who averaged 11.9 points per game in the ACC last year.

B1G Hoops has the reputation of being way more physical than the NCAA in general, which may hurt B1G teams in the NCAA tournament. So it may be that he's getting hammered in comparison with last year with real refs, and not getting to the foul line either.

Our honor defend, so we'll fight to the end !

RMLogic's picture

For as good as everyone thought Holtmann was last year reality is you win in basketball with talent. KBD was elite talent. Tate was above average. Even Williams was better than any player on this team.

This year Holtmann has no answers because there is no talent. Elite programs have freshman that come in and excel. OSU has zero . Washington and Muhammad show some promise but they are not good enough.

ibuck's picture

Even Williams was better than any player on this team.

So you're saying Kam Williams is better than Kaleb Wesson? Come on.

Our honor defend, so we'll fight to the end !

seltsaC's picture

That kid with the Brady jersey on in the student section should get kicked out.

Zimmy07's picture

I thought they might reverse that on Kaleb

Mantis's picture

This team has become a complete and utter joke.  I love watching OSU basketball, but I genuinely can't enjoy watching these games with an entire team of players that just look completely lost out there.  

Holtmann is not the savior after all.  I hate to say that because I wanted him to be so badly.  The players haven't gotten better in the slightest, but you could definitely argue they've gotten worse.  

Disgraceful.  

actionstanleyjackson's picture

What exactly has he had to work with? This recruiting class was his first. They are young. Older guys on this team are not very good and they are thad’s guys. His next class is great. This is not really surprising.

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

Log Jammin''s picture

Some people just want to bitch.....an earlier poster said Holtman should be on the hot seat, another said Holtman isn’t the savior.....is this the MGo blog? This team is simply not that good and that’s ok. They overachieved to start the year with a lineup that is equal parts Matta and Holtman. The consensus with both fans and the media coming into the season was next year and that is what this team is living up to!

I do mind, the Dude minds. This will not stand, ya know, this aggression will not stand, man.

tcm1968's picture

Just like the past few games.. Kaleb gets frustrated because the other team has a big that can handle him and he starts floating out towards the 3 point line.... actually like the offense better when he's on the bench so here's to a nice run...

Go Bucks!

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Kaleb Wesson is a four year guy. Guy should not ever think about leaving early 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

semperfibuck's picture

Good college player. No NBA FUTURE.

HoosierBuck's picture

He doesn't look like he spends much time in the weight room and it appears he would be faster and move better if he lost some more weight. just sayin. Thinking he needs to be a 4 yr player to achieve NBA  ambitions.

semperfibuck's picture

Why in the world are Woods and Jackson getting minutes instead of Washington and Ahrens?

actionstanleyjackson's picture

I wish osu played with some pace. So slow on offense. 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Big ten officials are just trash 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

BUCKEYEYANKEE's picture

Yes, Big Ten officials have never been good in my lifetime.

Mantis's picture

If these refs don't change their tune, the whole crowd is going to rush the floor at them. 

I've never seen any sports team get more consistently fucked by officiating game after game. 

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Getting screwed over in our own building. Just bullshit 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

actionstanleyjackson's picture

I am playing ahrens, Mohammed and Washington as much as possible the rest is the season 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

Zimmy07's picture

This is a pleasant surprise.  Ahrens is in the zone & working hard off the ball too

Cruiser72's picture

Will all the dudes that DV me please take your votes back   Leadership is a natural thing it is not taught, Holtmann does nothing to help these guys in the leadership department......... to be continued at the end of next season when Holtman is fired

TheVictoryBell's picture

What is Holtmann doing with this lineup?? Keep the guys in who made the run!!

seltsaC's picture

We pass the ball so slowly

ibuck's picture

We pass the ball so slowly

This may be progress . . . from quickly passing it to the opponent who then scores.

Our honor defend, so we'll fight to the end !

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Can osu pick up the tempo a bit please 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Purdue has three fouls half way through the half in a big ten game 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Had my fill of Cason Edwards at Purdue 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

seltsaC's picture

I've never seen so many idiots scared to shoot a wide open three. Holy shit.

Mantis's picture

Lol... Edwards seems like he'd be a dick to be on the court to play with.  Always mad at his team for everything.  

Mantis's picture

The dude literally just threw CJ backwards as he was going for the ball... no call. 

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Terrible. Refs are shit 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

Mantis's picture

This tall skinny guy from Purdue is a fucking baby.  Crying that he's getting held because a short guy out-rebounded him. 

polarbuck's picture

I just got home from my daughters JH Basketball game and I can see the officials were better for her game than this game.

You need to be humble or you will get humbled. - Jocko Willink

Cooper's picture

Basketbucks in general don’t deserve any benefit of the doubt, but there is absolutely a bias against Kaleb Wesson and his ability to be physical. It’s pathetic.

This is definitely where I parked my car.

Mantis's picture

Been saying it all year.  Never seen a player called for the type of fouls that he gets called for.  I think they just see a big body and always assume every little thing is a foul.  

IBleedSandG's picture

Andre missing the front end of that one and one was big

Guys are wide open and nobody has the awareness to find them fast enough.
