Let's go Bucks! Let's get revenge on those Nittany Lions!
And here we go!
That's a Buckeye touchdown!
Fuck eSECpn, Mythigan, Clemson & most of all Pedd State.
Fuck eSECpn and fuck Mythigan.
Jallow for nothing
You never lose to those pricks. Ever. Ever. Urban Frank Meyer
Sloppy passes. Must do better. Let's go Bucks.
Two TO's on Kaleb already. Heard he had flu.
If he's too tired, let's get his backup(s) in.
Our honor defend, so we'll fight to the end !
Here come the turnovers again
Brain dead passes
I'd rather be a minute early than an hour early, 'cause I like to procrastinate.
Jackson has 0 basketball IQ
Lol at Jallow wide open 3 point shot. Playing him is a total waste of time.
You think he'd learn to drive the ball, right?
Mark that air ball square. Go Bucks!
Wow. Some positive people here tonight!
Read my entire screen name....
Playing brain dead basketball is inexcusable. Nothing to be positive about that aspect.
Clueless football fans prone to negativism.
Like that we are pushing for transition opportunities. We need to stay aggressive.
good defense so far
Young! Love it.
I like seeing the tough defense.
Welcome back, Kyle!!!
Bucks out-rebounding Nits 9-2.
That’s an awful foul call on Mohammed.
I don't like that call.
That was some excellent D by Lu. Shouldn't have been a call
That was beautiful by Jackson
Playing decent so far. A couple things need to get cleaned up, but the boys are doing good right now
I freaking love Kyle Young. Comes back from a stress fracture and is already outworking people.
Come on Duane. Earn the minutes.
Seems he hit a freshman wall a few games back. Hopefully he can get through it and contribute more at the end of the season and in the postseason.
Yea. Completely agree. Like he’s thinking too much instead of playing.
I hope they stay with the half court trap all game long and we just keep attacking it.
This post not aging well at all
Time to put up or shut up.
See you in Indy !!
It's not a rivalry .............. it's a wreckoning.
Seattle Sounders 2019 MLS Champions
great defense on Stevens
Kyle doing work!!
Good to see
Life long fan of... The!
Defense is playing with intensity. Great to see
hate penn state probably more than michigan.
Kaleb Wesson! From DOWNTOWN!!!
Nice run right there...Limit those TOs!
"Because it worked," Ryan Day says, laughing.
Lu is winning BTPOY before he leaves. He is so damn good for a freshman
Of course I say that and then that happens
Both teams in the 1-and-1 for the rest of the half 7:26 to go.
All of the sudden late whistles by the refs. Let them play...
You win with people
big rebounding impact by Young so far, PSU one and done
Kyle back with a vengeance.
In...let's go Buckeyes!
Seems like that injury made Kyle better
Not true. He’s been our most effective player all year. Just not flashy so he’s under appreciated
Nice move right there
Wonder whatever happened to the poster who complained that Kyle Young was an unathletic "stiff" after the Syracuse game
Nice ball movement, nice shot.
LUUUUU drains it
Nice job, Kyle Young.
Still at work but just saw Young is outrebounding Penn St’s team
Good job of not forcing the ball into the double team down on the low block. Young opened the floor up on the wing and attacked.
Great, another PHANTOM foul call.
Correction: Make that 2 phantom foul calls.
don't let them back in this game
Why is Jackson so clueless against a press?
I don't buy one goddam drop of gas in the state of Michigan!
He's not a point guard, and his teammates aren't coming to provide a target or meet the pass.
Wow. Just wow.
"Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed, is more important than any other one thing." - Abraham Lincoln
what kind of foul call is that? come on
Can they realize CJ cannot bring the ball upcourt. Ridiculous that he keeps turning the ball over.
Get em coach! These fouls are ridiculous
I love Holtmann's fire!
I wish he would rip into CJ Jackson.
What good would that do?
This officiating is almost as bad as Ohio State’s handling of the 3/4 court press.
How can we not know how to defeat a double team in the middle of the floor on a press? Somebody has to be open.
We're getting mugged with no fouls called. And they're getting everything called against us that's close.
What a terrible close out for OSU and the refs.
Stay golden, Ponyboy.
PSU fouling with impunity.
Dear lord somebody come to the damn ball. No reason why our guys are getting left all alone in the middle of the freaking floor
Jump Ball of course is Timeout Penn State and there ball. Like we know the call before the refs say it
We get hosed EVERY flippin game on Refs!!! I'm so sick of this shit.... GET CJ out of there as well
Complete bs on these foul calls. There was nothing, zero, there
sorry end to the half
I’m not one to typically blame the refs, But their performance in the last couple of minutes was absolutely awful!
It honestly seemed like for about three minutes every close call went Penn State’s way. Odd.
What an awful ending to the half after a good start.
This is definitely where I parked my car.
Woods just got blasted and no friggin call
Really?!?! We had a double digit lead and now it's a one possession game at halftime?!?!
How many phantom fouls?
Ugly ending to the half.
One-sided whistles for the last eight minutes.
HE TRAVELED before he got the break of getting a foul called for him.
Whelp, let's get regrouped up here.
It’s official: Jackson and Woods cannot handle the ball against pressure. Play the youngsters!
Terrible end of half can't play against 8
Jackson and Woods continue to be disappointing while the refs look to be hosing us and apparently the floor. On the bright side, Lu looking good yet again and Andre Wesson looking good as well.
Ending to this half must be Urbans fault.
These refs are garbage.
Pain of Discipline
Pain of Regret
Take Your Pick
No matter how slick that floor may be, it can't be anywhere near as bad as the outdoor 2012 Carrier Classic game the Buckeyes didn't play against Marquette because there was so much condensation on the court.
"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
Well, at the half, we have Wesson for three, >45% shooting, >70% FT shooting, a PSU air ball, and had a double digit lead at one point
And do we have raining threes? We made three in a row and 4 in 5 made shots at one point.
I read "Towel Gang" as the guys mopping up the floor on every dead ball.
What a horrific end to the first half. I thought we were finally gonna have a game that didn't cause me to lose my mind, but that aint gonna happen.
12 TOs & 10 PFs at the half. C'mon Bucks regroup and make your adjustments.
Kaleb Wesson will probably be called for his 3rd foul in 2nd half warmups
What I would give for a true PG
You need to be humble or you will get humbled. - Jocko Willink
13 pt lead with 2:51 left in the half, cut to 3. In the last 2:27, 4 fouls on the Buckeyes, 0 fouls on Penn St. Very questionable officiating.
Buckeyes making numerous bad plays but they deserve better officiating than this.
Not all that happy. But we do have a lead. Just have to win the last 20.
Ball security and good defense should bring us back around. I look for better shooting from mid range to help break up the defense for PSU.
We have "adjustments" coming next year......in two real PG's. We have no one that even comes close to the definition of a strong ball handler.
It takes more than one guy to beat the trap. Teammates have to come up to help.
Hoping Holtmann and staff get this resolved at halftime.
The foul calls against Woods, Washington and the 2 calls against Young, all were questionable. The first foul on Young, Stevens cocked his head back and the refs rewarded that.
I’ve come to accept that OSU’s ceiling is not that far above their floor...and their floor is not very high.
Our guys are not matching their aggression on the boards
Run some back cuts.
C'mon Buckeyes. You can DO IT.
Nice job, AW.
Andre getting it done
Defense becoming nonexistent
Well, nice turnaround
Good little run there to start the half.
Wesson and Muhammad! Killing it tonight!
nice run going keep it up
There we go boys
Leave no doubt.....
Nastiest moves since we had DRuss out there
Terrible FLOP... But that terrible ref calls it again..
I can't disagree with that call. The guy stopped and Kaleb didn't and Kaleb ran in to him.
Edit: The next 3 calls made stink.
Off arm swings free
Refs sucks and ruin everything.
Yup. Against a 1- 10 team.
4 fouls in 25 seconds lol!
Called another completely phantom foul on Young and missed an obvious one on CJ
Young looks like his leg is bothering him
We need to speed Penn St. up. They're speeding us up and we are doing nothing to them.
Have to figure out that press.
Woods is not paying any attention where he is throwing the ball
He stops his dribble, waits for the defender to cover the man he is passing to and then throws the pass, either with nothing on it or with poor spacing.
Unbelievable bad defense
Just wow all the way around
I thought at Rutgers was rock bottom. Nope.
I’ve agreed with maybe one or two of the four fouls called on Young.
Penn State is so in Woods head now
It cannot be overstated how bad this Penn State team is. I’m just shocked OSU might be that bad too.
These refs are killing me. But the Buckeyes are also not executing on offense.
It's always about the officiating. IF there was anyone on this roster that could handle the basketball it would not be an issue. They literally do not have anyone who can bring the ball up under pressure. Jackson might a worse ball handler than Kareem was.
My complaint is with the fouls that have been called on the defensive end.
Agree on the ball handling but the foul count is 17-10 on our home court against a team that is physical and aggressive. Does not make sense.
Woods is killing us right now. Turnovers, bad shooting, etc.
Nice shot, DW.
7 fouls called on Ohio State and 2 (now three) on Penn State but the disparity is mostly due to garbage officiating.
Nice couple of plays by Washington, though.
Holtmann really needs DJ Carton to be the real goods next year.
I am so tired of watching CJ Jackson turn the ball over it's like ground hog day with the guy. I don't know what the answer is though because nobody else is much better.
so Watkins levels him and it's a block, wtf
What the hell was that?
No chance to win. That basket was right on Buckeye backs
Woods has been a net negative in B1G games.
Nice defense there.
I fucking hate refs so much..
The 2 announcers are talking about the condition of the floor way too much.
about time they call fouls on them
Should have gotten continuation what the hell
my word CJ Jackson.
Man, that's on Jackson there.
How stupid by Jackson. He knew that guy was coming from behind and still left the ball out there. Just dumb
this team has no basketball smarts or awareness.
Nice give and go there.
CJ Jackson’s ball security suuuuuucks
Jackson just keeps getting worse and worse with the ball in his hands. He is so careless, constantly allows himself to get trapped in the worst spots (the corner, just over half court etc..). The guy is just killing this team he really is. I hate to crap on a guy but he is getting worse by the game and you cannot win games turning it over 20 times and one guy alone is accounting for 1/3 of them.
How is that not a foul on the Penn State rebounder?
Worst officiated game I’ve seen since the last college basketball ball game I watched.
Lets go Bucks....get some W here.
Bucks need to play better if they want to win.
No offense but a blinding glimpse of the obvious. They are really out of it tonight
Sure, but they are still scrapping. Just a little poise can work wonders.
Go Buckeyes. You can DO IT!
Anyone see the Wisconsin Minnesota game last night? Wisconsin literally did not have a foul called on them until the 17 minute mark......of the 2nd half!
Well I guarantee you these refs did not work that game.
We're not even allowed to play defense anymore because of the number of bullshit fouls they've called on us. Just ridiculous. We are forced to literally just let them score and all we can do is watch.
THe most frustrating part is it is the same things killing this team game after game after game, and yet I really don't think they have any answers for what is plaguing them. It's a flawed team and it has my 100 percent support, but it does not make it any less frustrating to watch.
The frustrating thing is that it is the seniors and grads making the really stupid plays... and showing 0 bball IQ.
I would agree with that.
omg come on with the bad turnovers
WTF????!!!! What with the lazy pass!!!
Luther is hustling tonight.
Luther has been impressive indeed
Really, just sit Jackson. Woukd rather see one of the kids with the mops play
Good defense there.
That turnover is on CJ again
I'm pissed off that this crappy reffing makes me miss football refs.
The only good thing about The Game is winning it - Urban Meyer
Why does Woods stop his dribble out top when nobody is guarding him?? He stops his dribble, holds the ball and throws it away. Also, it looks like CJ might be cramping up.
Wow...I'll take it, CJ.
Woods needs to sit... permanently.
Dude just literally tackled Kaleb to the ground and of course there's no call...
Wow what a shot by CJ
# 21 for Penn St. tackled Kaleb to the floor
Should’ve been a foul on Harrow posing Wesson to the ground
Wow. They actually got a call right. I can't believe it...
We get the shitty call! Good!
I honestly thought it was a common foul. Bucks got the benefit of a flagrant but there’s no way that was a legal box out.
True....I just didn't think it was a flagrant....hey but I'm happy
should have been a foul on Harrar regardless
Make up call
Not really. Just a good call. I can't believe they didn't call it in real time. It was so obvious.
Jackson, Jackson, jackson
Have to finish these guys.
So according to Hummel fouls should not be called late in the game even if they would be called earlier in the game. Yeah, that makes sense.
Let's play smart basketball, buckeyes. Get this win.
Jackson giveth....and Jackson taketh away
I think CJ has been alternating good and bad plays for like three or four minutes now. Can he string together some good ones?
Announcers are morons talking about that call. He clearly drove and fell into Wesson. That’s a foul during any part of the game
Really need to hold it together here
We have the lead but panicking
HOW THE FUCK IS THAT A FOUL? YOU CAN'T FOUL SOMEONE WITH YOUR SHOULDER BLADE WHILE YOU'RE WALKING AWAY FROM THEM!!
Can't be sloppy
Where was the foul??? The bald ref really sucks. Any close plays is a foul to him. He calls everything.
And we collapse. Dumb and undisciplined plays
This is pitiful
Bolton initiated contact. Should’ve been a no-call.
The turnovers. Hot garbage ball handling.
Just keep turning it over and turning it over and over and over and over
why don't you just hand the ball to Reaves
awful officiating, game must be way too fast for them
This is just a masterpiece in how to give a game away over 40 minutes.
Andre Wesson in the most crucial moments of games just throws the ball away.
Wesson has got to understand his value to the team and find a way to stay on the floor. Literally, in foul trouble every game.
It's the first couple of fouls that get him trouble.
Woods shouldn’t see the floor with how out-of-control he plays and is acting
Outstanding, Kyle Young!
nice pass CJ
Has Stevens fouled out yet?
Nice passing and nice patient take by Young.
And 1! Let's go buckeyes!
Everything that kills osu has been on display tonight...fouls, turnovers and missed free throws
Cannot stand that Penn State has our number in basketball of all sports
Need a good stop here. Get this W!
At least it didn't hit the rim
if they make something with 1 sec on the shot clock...
My thoughts exactly.
You gotta be kidding me
shot clock violation, it's in his hand at 0
So he didn't push Jackson first out of the way to get the ball apparently
Clock started late and still didn't get it out
Regardless of if that counts, how you gonna let that pass and shot get up.
If they count that, then we know the refs are on the take.
Come on Buckeyes !! No way he got that off for crying out loud.
It’s not even close
Bad enough having to watch this mess on ESPN...I actually listened to Oscar the Grouch calling the game for two hours!
Come on, Buckeyes.
Don't worry they will press and steal the ball
Like...I could’ve told the refs Penn State didn’t have time to catch, gather and shoot.
Drive the ball up the middle!
Hit these Andre
Hit these CJ
Shots no good. Wish they could review the shove.
can't make FTs
May win it but don't deserve it
and they miss a layup
Holy crap how did he miss?
Took his eyes off the rim?
And Jackson gets friggin lucky as he got blown past.
Wow we got lucky with that missed layup
Good job CJ
nice job CJ
Jackson got beat bad. I don't know how that didn't go in.
i'll take the W
Eat it scrawny lions
Always ugly, but I'll take the W.
Yes! Finally a win vs PSU!
Holtmann's first win against PSU!
Ugly but we will take it
Feed the trolls
At least we don't have to hear the announcers talk about the floor anymore.
Sheesh. Got the win but I'm exhausted.
Maybe this is the win that gets us over the hump against Penn State. I was tired of losing to those guys.
The bad for Coach Holtmann - no adjustments to the trap. We burnt that trap early on, but when it started working, then no adjustments. Credit though to Coach Holtmann for not picking up any technicals in a very poorly officiated game.
Is it me, or does CJ Jackson turn the ball over too much?!? And why in the hell did we play the trap to their advantage? We would dribble 1/4 of the way up the court, before getting to the "trap", and then just stopping and looking to pass the ball off...if it were me, dribble that bitch up to half court as fast as you can and don't allow them to establish a trap..
