These are not the kind of Cougars I like.  

Go Bucks.  Wreck some more brackets!

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

Wow, i didn't realize Houston is packing a 32-3 record...we got this!

In the poll era (since 1936), OSU is by far the class of the B1G:
National Titles: OSU 8, UM 3
B1G Titles: OSU 33, UM 27
Head-to-head: OSU 42, UM 36
Major Bowls (New Year's Six): OSU 20-14, UM 10-16

Impressive record, but they also did lose to Cincinnati.  If we take care of the ball, and play at the speed that we're comfortable, and Kaleb stays on the floor, we can win this one.

This is not going to be an easy game, Houston is really good. If Ohio St can get past Houston and into the sweet sixteen, Holtmann deserves a raise and national coach of the year

Agreed!! But question, how was Kaleb tonight?

He was what he should be.

Kaleb played very well. When Kaleb doesn't put himself on the bench with committing stupid fouls he's a really good player.

He was a monster! They couldn't stop.his drop step move. He put up 21 and 12.

Get dumped then

We beat Cincy by 8, Cincy beat Houston by 12.  OSU already has a 20 point win, let's just call it that and move to the next round :)

Can we please give Holtman credit for what he has done this year. Even tonight, Jallow was the right fit to match Iowa State. So happy for woods and CJ to play another game, they work hard and take our criticism but they always work hard and are the leaders of this years team

HS

CJ is worse then JR Smith with how streaky his shooting is. Sure he may be a senior leader but good lord he can't shoot the ball most nights

He’s been injured, both shoulder and ankle.

HS

Has his injuries been going on the last three years? I mean once every 10 games he shoots lights out, every other game I could have built a city out of all of those bricks

I'm not worried about their ranking. They have one of the best defenses in the country and we don't shoot the ball well against a poor defense let alone a good defense

They absolutely are, especially when there's a wrestling tournament going on as well.

A 20 win Season with this team and the strong Big 10 schedule is an impressive achievement for Holtmann

Beautiful.  Couldn't be more proud of this team for what they've accomplished.

As an Ohio state fan who live in Iowa, Iowa state is the cyclones not the hawkeyes. Like really

You’re really breaking up my perceptions, man.

A guy I used to work with grew up in Iowa.  He claimed it was an acronym for Idiots Out Walking Around.

I hated working with him when Iowa kicked our ass in basketball.

I say we make Houston pay for letting TTUN advance last year.

The good thing is they don't have size... they are a LEGIT fantastic squad but size has given us trouble all year.  They start 3 guards and then the front court is 6'7 and 6'8.

Kaleb will be the tallest dude on the floor.. keep him out of foul trouble and he should eat...

PS.... I'm not sure I can think of another player in football or basketball the past 10-15 years that has done such a 180 like Keyshawn Woods... unbelievable...  7 points per game on the season and somehow at 17 per game the past 3 games... Well done Keyshawn!!!!!!  MAJOR props... 

Go Bucks!!!

Great points. There is a path to victory. But they have excellent guard play.

I went to one of their games with my guys when my twins were still on the way.  They were playing Tulane - I went to Tulane, so I had a biased rooting interest.

Shouting out the shot clock seconds countdown left about 4 seconds ahead of reality really worked.

Shouting “Make up Call!” During the foul shout worked as well.

i was advised to shut the eff up by my best friend at one point.  I took his advice.  Game AT HOUSTON.

my pregnant wife was at that game & he mentioned just how many people I was pissing off.

OSU 4-0 all time vs Houston. Keep it going

Another chance to win and advance. I trust Holtmann to get the best game plan ready.

HS

Holtmann really did a great job this season. This team has limitations but they play hard every night. Makes this win even sweeter

Awesome! We broke the "62 curse"  - the first 3 games this season that we scored 62 we lost.  I guess it was part of that deal with the devil.  I'm good with that deal now!

Hopefully we play our best game and the officials let them play like they did against Iowa St. C.J. Jackson didn’t hit a shot against Iowa State so he’s due against Houston. Andre Wesson needs to hit some timely 3’s too.

Great game Buckeyes!  Great first round Big Ten--7 of 8 Big Ten teams advanced to round 2.  ACC gets all the pub. And with Carolina, Duke, and Virginia that is understandable. But, a Big Ten team has to come to play every conference game because we are solid from top to bottom and you have to be ready every game no matter who you play.  And we beat a good Iowa State team on a "neutral court" where at least 85% of the crowd were cheering for them.  Houston is talented and seeded 3.  But, they better come to play or they could be in deep trouble.  GO BUCKS!
