 get a convincing W if we want to keep NCAA hopes alive.

If they win, they're in (at least the First Four). A convincing win, or a close win and hanging with MSU would likely get them off the First Four (and perhaps a dreaded matchup against NCSU). 

BrutusB's picture

Maybe, but it also depends how all the other conference tourneys go.  A low-seed getting hot and snagging an auto-bid (like Saint Marys already did) could doom us even with a win.  But we've gotta focus on what we can control right now, and that's beating IU.

Come on Buckeyes!! Fight like we know you can.

That's a Buckeye touchdown!

Lets Go Bucks!!!! Bring the energy!

I'd rather be a minute early than an hour early, 'cause I like to procrastinate.

I see Bo Boroski. Down a shot!

Check.

Bucks2K18's picture

Take good shots boys

That's a Buckeye touchdown!

PhillyNut's picture

Didn't IU have an air ball? Thought they missed the rim completely and it bounced off the backboard

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

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Can someone please box out Morgan? 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

Knarcisi's picture

Not bad after an 0-4 start from the floor. 

Skunk bear blood's picture

Good to the break!  Keep the ball away from Langford!

Izzo would foul out 5 guys with these officials.

Terrible call...WOW

I'm here so let's get this win!

Go Bucks!

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Sloppy. 3 straight shots on the rim missed

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

ITWASME's picture

Kyle Young has come in and set 2 big screens

Knarcisi's picture

How could the committee watch this game and put either team in?

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Young was shooting

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

GrandTheftHarley's picture

"IU air ball." I think.

I am not very smart, but I recognize that I'm not very smart. --- W.W. Hayes

Need Ahrens or Washington to be effective today.

Duccivespucci's picture

Are these really two NCAA tournament teams? My eye test says no but I’ll take it as a Buckeye fan.

Michael

actionstanleyjackson's picture

This team just junks up 3s and are so bad from that area. They just don't stop

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

Knarcisi's picture

3-14 from the floor, with the lead. 

Mantis's picture

How in the world was that a foul on the floor?  You can't get any more in the act of shooting than that... 

IronPastor's picture

The same way the entry pass to Kaleb was a charge instead of a foul on one of the two Hoosier players mauling his arms...

GEAUX BUCKEYES

dmiller2345's picture

My thoughts exactly IP!

Urban Meyer, undefeated (7-0) VS ttun | Ryan Day, undefeated (2-0) vs ttun

C'mon, Shooty Hoops Bucks! Take the lid off that basket!

Take the lid off that basket!

C'mon, Bucks. Smash that lid with a dunk!

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

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Back to being a turnover machine

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

Bucks2K18's picture

Stop turning the ball over

That's a Buckeye touchdown!

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Big Ten officiating is utter BS. Just terrible

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

Buxki84's picture

No foul there on Young. He moved and gave ground to avoid the foul.

I'd rather be a minute early than an hour early, 'cause I like to procrastinate.

ITWASME's picture

Lu looks like he came to play today!

Mantis's picture

Kaleb's coming out determined today.  As he should. He owes the team a great game. 

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Not sure what is worse...the commentators, the refs or OSU's offense

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

Buxki84's picture

Great find by Woods.

I'd rather be a minute early than an hour early, 'cause I like to procrastinate.

Bucks2K18's picture

The other Wesson for 3!!!

That's a Buckeye touchdown!

ITWASME's picture

Andre looking good there with a steal and a 3

Buxki84's picture

He knew where the ball was going and he didn't just stand there.

I'd rather be a minute early than an hour early, 'cause I like to procrastinate.

EJRosencrans's picture

Great pass! What the heck happened to Jackson?

Go Bucks!

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Elbowed in the nose...no call of course

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

Hovenaut's picture

Get tuned in and catch a bloody nose...

Rub some dirt on it, CJ...let's go Buckeyes.

Got M...igan gossip? Bang it here.

PhillyNut's picture

So Jackson takes an arm to the nose, blood gushing and no foul. Yeah, that makes sense

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

GrandTheftHarley's picture

When there's blood, you gotta call the foul.

I am not very smart, but I recognize that I'm not very smart. --- W.W. Hayes

ITWASME's picture

Lu and Kaleb looking real determined today. Great to see

"Wesson has his way."

buckeyefan927's picture

Where do these smaller conferences find their referees? Because the smaller conferences don’t feel like the referees need to get their “tv time” by blowing the whistle every trip down the floor like the B1G

Edit: or not blowing the whistle when an actual foul does happen 

IronPastor's picture

Wonder if the officials will check the monitor during the break about the CJ elbow

GEAUX BUCKEYES

Hovenaut's picture

Good decisions in transitions indeed..

Tell 'em, coach.

Got M...igan gossip? Bang it here.

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Anytime IU drives to the hope the refs automatically call a foul. 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

EJRosencrans's picture

Woods brought the hustle today.

Go Bucks!

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Wesson has three guys hanging on him and they don't call. Bo Boroski is a POS

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

ITWASME's picture

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME

Buxki84's picture

OMG. They called a foul on a routine box out.

I'd rather be a minute early than an hour early, 'cause I like to procrastinate.

IronPastor's picture

These officials are terrible

GEAUX BUCKEYES

TheVictoryBell's picture

Are these seriously the best officials the Big Ten can find?? These guys are jokes!

buckeyefan927's picture

Oh yeah go review this but not the elbow 

Zimmy07's picture

Reading the play by play - 4 fouls on us in a minute?

dmiller2345's picture

WOW... The officiating is garbage!

Urban Meyer, undefeated (7-0) VS ttun | Ryan Day, undefeated (2-0) vs ttun

*As always, In (Urban) Ryan Day I Trust! There is a plan, even if we cannot see it right now!

God, Family, Guns, Country, and Sports!

actionstanleyjackson's picture

These two commentators are so pro IU. They aren't even trying to hide it. 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

IronPastor's picture

I hate the "hook and hold" rule, because both players can be holding...if you drag someone to the ground, I understand, but just a simple box out and such...come on

GEAUX BUCKEYES

Knarcisi's picture

I can never tell who is holding who. Even after several replays. 

ITWASME's picture

Straight up outworked him and boxed him out and they call a foul. If the guy doesn't put his hands up there is no hook there is no hold. So easy to rig this as the other guy

dmiller2345's picture

How was there no foul called when K. Wesson was under the hoop?

Urban Meyer, undefeated (7-0) VS ttun | Ryan Day, undefeated (2-0) vs ttun

*As always, In (Urban) Ryan Day I Trust! There is a plan, even if we cannot see it right now!

God, Family, Guns, Country, and Sports!

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Hard to win 8 on 5

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

PhillyNut's picture

We will not get a fair shake from these officials. Nor the announcers

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

EJRosencrans's picture

This is really a dumb rule. I just don't get it.

Go Bucks!

PhillyNut's picture

Our guys are getting baited to make those throws into Wesson, they are ready for it.

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

IronPastor's picture

So Morgan can arm bar Wesson and get a steal?  really?

GEAUX BUCKEYES

ITWASME's picture

Morgan is the handsiest big in the Big Ten.

EJRosencrans's picture

I don't like that shot selection

Go Bucks!

actionstanleyjackson's picture

IU been called for just 5 fouls. Again..anytime IU drives to the rim the foul is automatically called. 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

Knarcisi's picture

Woods finally delivering. Green light. 

Buxki84's picture

Young back in with 2 fouls. 2 fouls on Muhammad.

I'd rather be a minute early than an hour early, 'cause I like to procrastinate.

ITWASME's picture

Young straight up pushed from behind

PhillyNut's picture

Finally called something on Davis. He cross checked Young at the other end, no call

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

buckeyefan927's picture

One thing about the NCAA tournament, you never know what’s going to happen when B1G refs aren’t involved.

IronPastor's picture

This is funny, but sad and true...

GEAUX BUCKEYES

Buxki84's picture

Hmmm?

I'd rather be a minute early than an hour early, 'cause I like to procrastinate.

EJRosencrans's picture

Nice power in by Young

Go Bucks!

dmiller2345's picture

ANDRE for 3

Urban Meyer, undefeated (7-0) VS ttun | Ryan Day, undefeated (2-0) vs ttun

God, Family, Guns, Country, and Sports!

PhillyNut's picture

Offensive foul? Seriously?

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

ITWASME's picture

That was fair I saw him swing his arm out and extend

Buxki84's picture

Are the IU players made out of cardboard?

I'd rather be a minute early than an hour early, 'cause I like to procrastinate.

dmiller2345's picture

Did Woods push off?

That was fair I saw him swing his arm out and extend

Edit: Thanks, ITWASME!

Urban Meyer, undefeated (7-0) VS ttun | Ryan Day, undefeated (2-0) vs ttun

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Thought they were going to pull away a bit...but refs going to make sure IU stays in the game

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Just stay with #11 for IU and box out Morgan

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

buckeyefan927's picture

I’m pretty sure we all can agree at least the fan that screams like a banshee during free throws isn’t at this tournament 

Bucks2K18's picture

We hit 30 in the first half!

That's a Buckeye touchdown!

PhillyNut's picture

They set a lot of moving picks

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

IronPastor's picture

Green is on fire...need to keep him from catching the pass..put Washington or someone on him.

GEAUX BUCKEYES

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Swear to God Jackson refuses to play #11 close on the perimeter

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

actionstanleyjackson's picture

#1 grabbed Washington's arm and pulled him...no call

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

IronPastor's picture

That was a terrible no call...

GEAUX BUCKEYES

ITWASME's picture

Who is this team who knows how to run a fastbreak?

ShowThemOhiosHere's picture

OFfense attacking, making some shots, getting out on the break.

Defense active, with the turnovers at least.

Like what I'm seeing so far.

Class of 2010.

PhillyNut's picture

And of course Muhammad did not get fouled on that breakout to Jackson. Just wow with these officials

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

Buxki84's picture

Washington

I'd rather be a minute early than an hour early, 'cause I like to procrastinate.

PhillyNut's picture

Sorry, Washington

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

Hovenaut's picture

Indiana turnovers are good.

Got M...igan gossip? Bang it here.

actionstanleyjackson's picture

This could be a double digit lead for OSU if it were called fairly. IU has been bailed out time and time again. That and #11 making everything 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

ITWASME's picture

This is what we have been wanting Woods

Knarcisi's picture

Good close. Woods showing up. 

I'm Ron Burgundy's picture

Woods feeling it!  Nice half Buckeyes!

Edit: Also credit to Holtmann for clearly drawing that last play up to ISO him

ShowThemOhiosHere's picture

KEY to close out the half.  Nice first half!

Class of 2010.

dmiller2345's picture

Woods having a great game!!! Nice shot to end the half!

Urban Meyer, undefeated (7-0) VS ttun | Ryan Day, undefeated (2-0) vs ttun

*As always, In (Urban) Ryan Day I Trust! There is a plan, even if we cannot see it right now!

God, Family, Guns, Country, and Sports!

Zimmy07's picture

Nice end to the half.  I think we outscored ourselves from the last 2 game first halves combined.

BrutusB's picture

Woods is easily the MVP so far.  Hopefully some other guys pick up the slack.

GrandTheftHarley's picture

"OSU > 70% FT shooting in a half."

Check.

Announcer had to look at his notes to remember Chris Holtmanns last name lol

Buxki84's picture

Chris... (delay)...Holtmann?

I'd rather be a minute early than an hour early, 'cause I like to procrastinate.

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater's picture

Not watching but just checked the box and only 1 minute in the first half for Ahrens?   Can't complain with the lead, but that seems odd.

BrutusB's picture

Andre Wesson's actually played well.  Don't need to take him out (yet)

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater's picture

Thanks, hope Andre keeps rolling.   Woods sounds like he is killing too.

Toledobucknut's picture

Score??? and how much time left??  I'm at work.......thanks!

navybucknut's picture

tOSU up 42-34 , 15:10 left to go.

Two of the weakest and one calls you will ever see gifted to Indiana!
