What OSU does. Win titles. 

Heck of a tournament. Not a fan of Beals but he does well in the tournament.

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

Buckeyes have won 8 of last 9 and 11 of last 13. Apparently, they entered this game batting .190 for the tournament. So their pitchers have come on big time.

This was a tremendous win after playing 9 innings this morning for their 1st win against 4 losses to Minnesota this season.

As OSU closer, Andrew Magno, says, "The Buckeyes are Hot!"

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

I think you're being very generous about Beals. Been here 9 years and getting to his 3rd appearance in NCAAs with 2 Big Ten titles isn't horrible, but it doesn't scream out for the $300K+ that he makes, either.

Magno was MVP, literally 'saved' the last two games.

Magno was MVP, literally 'saved' the last two games.  

Is it MVP or MOP?

Heard that Magno Saved all FOUR of OSU's wins in the tournament, going 3.1 innings to save this one, after 2.1 innings for a Save earlier this morning.

That is definitely OUTSTANDING.

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

2 weeks ago the baseball Bucks weren't even in this tournament but now they're B1G Champions! Outstanding!

Oh, wait.  What makes it even sweeter?  4 B1G teams likely IN which means a 5th might not.  Who would be the 5th?  Michigan...lol.

Weren't people calling for Beals' head a couple weeks ago given where the team was sitting record-wise? What a response by him and his team taking home the B1G title when it counts.

11 Strong.

I think they went maybe 10-1 since that thread started.  Maybe the coach read it.

It was and still is extremely well deserved. Downvote if you want, I would guess the majority of the thread knows little about baseball let alone college baseball.

Is it appropriate to call this one "out of left field"?  

Congratulations for an unexpected championship.

The pitching was impressive, particularly Andrew Magno.

I watched every pitch for the last three games after not watching a single pitch all season. 

They weren't intimidated by a hostile crowd. Take those cajones to the next round.

Super proud of this team, to grind out and the Tourney like that is impressive. Had to win two games in one day, especially to beat Nebraska in essentially a home game. Also in front of the 2nd largest crowd of an NCAA baseball game this year. GO BUCKS!

That would be a lot of people, myself included.  Today's result doesn't really change the fact that he has underperformed for the vast majority of his time here. Maybe this turns it around and we get back to expecting to win these titles instead of being surprise winners. I hope so, but I am not holding my breath based on what I've seen since he's been here.

Think what it would be like if Ohio State’s football recruiting class was drafted within months of signing their LOIs plus draft eligible juniors. That’s college baseball. A top recruiting class could be gutted before they play a game.

Yeah but osu baseball is nothing like osu football. They aren’t signing the top players in the country, let alone the state. Osu football is more comparable to LSU baseball. Osu baseball isn’t normally signing players in their class that are being drafted very high in the mlb. They aren’t being gutted like a top program because they aren’t getting the best players. Osu baseball recruits sort of like Maryland football where a lot of the top talent doesn’t stay home.

It wasn't one guy. It was dozens. And they are still right, this unfortunately extends his job. As an ex-player of his it is so hard to not air it all out in these threads, but now is not the time.  The time now is for honoring the players' achievement and supporting the team as they head into the NCAA tournament, which I will always do. I guarantee you whatever the hell happened this weekend had nothing to do with Beals.

HS

So OSU, Nebraska, Indiana and Illinois are all in?

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

HS
iowabuckeyes's picture

Minnesota is more likely than Nebraska. Michigan could also be in; it depends on whether Ohio State took their spot or another team’s. I’m hoping we took their spot. Insult to injury.

Closest regionals are Morgantown, Louisville, and Chapel Hill.  Don't be surprised to find us in one of those three.  Curious to see if we are a 3 seed or 4 seed.

HS
iowabuckeyes's picture

I’m guessing a 3 seed. Hard to put a team that won a major conference as a 4. But all a 3 means is we won’t draw the home team in the first round. This team is like a basketball team on playing out of its mind in the first half—halftime is the last thing it needs and as hot as this team is, it needs to play sooner than later before what they start thinking about what they just accomplished and it starts to sink in.

Wanted to make a shout-out to Will Pfennig, who pitched a fine game in a losing effort to Minnesota Saturday. 8 and 1/3 innings, 111 pitches. Bucks need another strong outing by him, and this time support him with some offense.

Congratulations, Baseball Bucks! Now go crash the Dance.

HS
iowabuckeyes's picture

They didn’t come to the semi-final between OSU and Minnesota, choosing instead to tailgate, then felt jipped on a couple replays, and couldn’t rally their team to win, and now they’re on the outside looking in for the NCAA tournament after losing in their own backyard. Not a lot for them to feel good about.

Great job by the BaseballBucks!

It puzzles me why they don't get more attention, given that Ohio has 2 MLB teams and our football team is in the offseason.

bucksfan92's picture

The reason why is because they have been terrible for the last 15 years or so.  The last few years under Bob Todd the program, which had been very strong and did get significant attention, really started to slide.  Then Beals was hired and the program has really stagnated under him.  I am shocked he is still here, but for whatever reason, he seems to be our Kirk Ferentz.  Pulls a saving season out of his ass the day before he was going to get fired. I guess we are stuck with him for a while longer now.

You know - the Ohio State Buckeyes always seem to come out on top and toss a little salt up north in the process.  Life is grand my friends!!!  Congrats to the Baseball Buckeyes... now go mix it up in the NCAA!!!

MaineStrength's picture

Correct me if I'm wrong here, but doesn't only winning the regular season title give you an automatic bid into the tournament?  My Google search skills have caused me to project OSU will get the last seed in Morgantown with WV & NC State in their region...not an easy route to the Super Regional, but I guess there aren't any & it is baseball & OSU is hot right now.

Strength equipment is expensive & guarantees you nothing. A strong will is free & will give you everything you need.

NCAA.com has Ohio St listed as the B10’s autobid.

Lol nah it's just like basketball. Regular season title is nice and all but the conference tournament is what really matters.

Like I said in the forum thread, this Big 10 tournament championship does more to hurt OSU Baseball than help. It will save Beals’ job, which means we are stuck in mediocrity for another couple years at least. We are at best, the 3rd best program in the state and actually on the verge of being the 4-5th and it is 100% because of Beals. It’s really embarrassing for those of us that know and follow OSU Baseball
