Here we go baby!!! So pumped for this game. The 3's worry me, but our perimiter defense is much better than what ND conjured up last round
You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.
3s wont be a problem when we unleash the Craftbeast
I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me
Alrighty! Let's go Bucks!
"Most Noahs have two of everything, he's got four tonight" - Gus Johnson on Noah Brown's 4 TD catches against Oklahoma.
Here's hoping we drop 100 on them.
to the 11W member who coined the phrase Cyclowns
we thank you
Lets go buckeyes!
"Sometimes you eat the bear and sometimes the bear eats you."
Let's Go Bucks! Time for some squeaky sneakers and Ravenel/Thompson dunks!
I'm fired up for this one because of the Cyclown fans talking trash.
I might head over to their site and troll anyone know what its called?
You're assuming they have enough fans to have a site.
I googled "diseased field corn" and I think I found it.
An angry fan...rooting for an angry team...led by angry coaches
3 of the 4 "analysts" for CBS picked us to lose. But they're all under .500 so there ya go.
Hell yeah, let's go and weather these cyclones. Go Bucks!!!
DT is looking on today
DUNK THE DAMN BALL AMIR!!!!!!
damnit Amir your 7ft finish strong
He's a frigging liability out there.
Amir goes up strong he gets fouled.
Gotta finish that bucket
Amir is awful.
lenzelle and Amir #useless
Amir expecting to get hacked. They need to stop rushing so much. Calm down and play ball.
and play some AGAMD!
I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!
I'd be fine if Lenzelle never suited up again.
I would plus 100 that statement if this site would allow me. The good news is we only need to watch him TRY and play hoops for our Bucks for one more year.....He should be no better than the 2nd or 3rd person off the bench - behind Ross and Rav! It's baffled me for two years how in the wide wide world he starts on this team.....we have shown in this 9 game run that we play MUCH better w/ him on the pine....
ugh, now this is looking sloppy.
I don't like how we look early, Amir has to play better.
play Ross and Scott and run
Hi, Rav. Nice to see you.
paulus was wide opne
Amir "the creme puff" Williams - dude has hands of stone.
Slam I Am is getting more and more confident
Has every shot outside of Amir's fail been from 18 ft? Christ.
uggh...cant be missing shots in a shoot out
calm down. coach give them hell
Toledo, a good place to be FROM
is the arm part of the ball ?
thats 2 u owe us refs
I hate these early starts.
I think Amir forgets he has hands.
DRIVE the ball vs a horrible defensive team
let's not do the starting-off-slow crap we did mid season every frickin' game. Can't do that in the tourney.
ISU's Lucious keeps smiling, clapping and laughing, trying to let that fake confidence get into Craft's head. I would love to see what a knee to the groin would do to that dude.
I like to think he's giving Craft a round of applause.
Hey guys, stop rippin the team and the players! They are dominating teams and playing excellent ball as a team. Keep ripping Smith but I have seen him hit some clutch shots this year and play some excellent defense! Keep ripping Amir but he is a very raw talent that does make some plays and helps this team have some size against teams. As I have said, he has these spurts of good play but just isn't ready to be a full time player yet. He wasn't supposed to be the starter!
How about you enjoy this team a bit and stop with the name calling and benching! Until they start showing that they can't compete, you all are just whining!
I would love if our Bucks limited their O- boards
Kyle "blood on the field" Kalis... 0-5
what about the 2 no calls on the other end
We can't foul jump shooters
We're in trouble
The sky is not falling yet...
6 minutes in, still fine
I know. Just muttering to myself
breathe and settle down bucks.
~Because we couldn't go for three~
Get lenzelle off the court
2 on sam. ugh
what are they chanting?
I was wondering the same...
Maybe my imagination, but it sounds like..."we will not be defeated..."
sounds like something those little gerbils in MIB II would be chanting
3 guard is what we need
Need to pick up the tempo some
DT feeling it.
Smith is on the bench.....time to make a run.....
sam thompson got mad ups, surprises me every game man
If Scott develops a jumper he'll be great. And I LOVE Slam.
I wanted that to be slammed so hard!!!
Man... If only Shannon Scott could shoot
And when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of boooooooooze!! And we'll drink to old Ohio 'till we wobble in our shoes.
if only anyone could shoot besides Tank, Q and Shaggy Soprano
These chants remind me of those little gerbils oin the locker in MIB II
Check above for what I heard them chanting...
That's hilarious - I was thinking exactly the same thing. "ALL HAIL J! OH J CAN YOU SEE..."
the cyclown fans have some cute little chants
I love the defensive presence when Scott is on the floor.
Craft saw that angle yesterday!
here we go
Craft just held down turbo and hit circle button...
am. breathing.better. I thought Sam had 2 fouls, yeah I was wrong.
Lately Craft has been getting very....crafty around the rim.
We are a different (and much better) team with Scott on the floor
Scott is on!!
Dear Trey Burke; That is why Scott was offered
This team has Trey Burke they are a top 3 team....Trey is better than Scott - as painful as that is for us to admit. We have Trey on this team we may be favored to win the whole thing!
Totally disagree. Not as good on D and shoots too much for a point guard
Scott got away with one
Just work on that jumper Scott... But we already luv ya
Nice job Scott!!!! Shannon that taunt was not smart!
How come Iowa St keeps falling down?
Scott has a horrible habit of taking jumpers early in the shot clock, I call it Hero Ball!
but damn is he so good with everything else.
keep talking Cyclowns
What did he do exactly?
Ref's see us take momentum...call a jippy technical
Iowa S Can they handle a little pressure
Little sensitive to the tech. Unless his mouth let go.
That is why you don't taunt and get a technical! Scott basically traded baskets for that steal!
I don't care about the T... we need start playing with a chip on our shoulder
Thomas rarely misses those
DT is feeling it today.
Ross misses a shot and then makes an awesome defensive play.
IS THIS BIZARRO WORLD?
Thomas is looking really good so far
bang it Tank
Can someone please tell me why Amir starts anymore? Rav has been a beast on D.
Buckeyes have won 9 straight with this lineup and rotation. I trust Matta.
Point taken. In Matta We Trust
Some players are better off the bench
I have no idea! At first Ravenel was getting killed as the starting center, so Matta put in Amir and hoped he would develop faster.
Now Ravenel is playing in straight beast mode and should be starting despite Amir's play good or bad!
Ravenel is playing some AGAMD!
Yes! This will be a thing!
Nice block Q!
now Q get hot and we are on our way
You see an awful lot of chatter in basketball, so I'd sure like to know what Scott said that rated a T...
The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.
2 on scott... who do you bring in?
Anybody but Smith Jr. He sucks.
Anybody but Smith Jr. He sucks.
you can take that 3 pointer he made, and stuff it up your backside.
I can go out there and make 1 out of 10 WIDE OPEN 3s... so take that and shove it up your backside.. if you think he is good, you are the most ignorant basketball fan on earth
he's a Buckeye. Why you hatin?
Because he does more harm than good on the court. He doesn't do anything well. He can't drive, he can't dribble, he can't shoot, and he's the most overrated defender. There is no reason for him to be on the court. And also, I'm hating on him for the same reason everyone hated on Joe Bauserman.
He is our 2nd leading scorer on a team whose weakness is scoring.
well, he's 1 of 12. We'll need him to do well to advance, so either keep on sending your hater vibes, or sack up and hope for the best.
Calling it too close early. Maybe setting the tone then lighten up later
Scott lightly tossed the ball at an ISU player along with stareing straight at him and yelling/saying something. Pretty easy taunting tech.
so 2 on scott now?BOth stupid fouls.
One more big play and were off. Lots of confidence in this team right now.
We need Scott on the floor. Not good.
I love roundball but it can be a pussy sport when the refs call everything. And what's wrong with a little taunting?
lets finish the half on a nice 20-4 run
Really wish refs would stay out of the game and just let teams play. Did TV Teddy sneak in before the tip?
If you had told me Iowa State would have this many turnovers already, I'd have thought we were way, way ahead. This is shaping up as a closer game than I hoped it would be.
Need Ross to step it up.
I guess if we fall down they can make the shot.
"I miss Brady Hoke."
So close to a big run. Gotta get one going. Cyclones are sloppy with the ball let's hope that keeps up
SMITH LOOKED SO HORRIBLE ON THAT 3! WOW!
Okay, Lenzelle - we see you.
Nice shot Scarlet Mamba!
seriously,did they grease the floor?
Thomas needs to carry us
Rav can't seem to stay on his feet today.
Rav needs to put on longer cleats
Rav looks like a sniper has taken him out on a couple of plays.
Your shoes untied? really?
Dear Iowa State, you don't belong. We'll drop a postcard from L.A.
hey you. your shoes untied??
I am hoping thats not the chant
Hey you. You're shoe's untied.
haha, the last one, "The ball is kinda sticky" was a good chant, I will give them that one
Ravanel shoulda given Amir the 60 lbs he lost.
They definitely jack up the 3s...
Go at him and get his third
I think at one point I heard the chant "Hey you, let's see that c$ck!" lmao
Got to make open shots if they are going zone
damn these runs, 7-1 for ISU
On pace to score upper 80s for each team
Shoot less 3s
last thing we needed was scott in foul trouble and lenzelle back on the court. Get the ball to DT
Ravenel used to be 320? Really?
The problem w/ Smith making that 3 is now he thinks he can shoot.....he outta go about 2-9 for the day....unfortunately Matta has no choice and has to play him since Scott has 2 fouls - lets hope we can limp to the half. 7-1 run since Scott went out and Smith came in - maybe cause Scott plays D and Smith runs after his man chasing him like he wants his autograph!
We are not a 3 point shooting team, that is not or identity. Why are we trying to trade 3s? Take the time to develop the shot we make consistently.
It seems the inside game has worked best so far. Craft needs to drive to the lane.
Amir didn't last long. Don't think he'll see much time unless Rav gets in foul trouble
Or brains himself falling down.
Looks like Ohio State is getting frustrated, losing some edge to their discipline on defense leaving Iowa State open on three's which is killing any lead we work out to. Then we rush down the floor putting up sloppy rushed three's because we aren't working down low without Rav falling all over himself.
When you get the ball under the rim, no, the best look is not passing it out to try for a 3. Shoot the GD ball. Better yet, dunk.
We were winning by 5 a second ago....
feed Thomas in the post
We need Scott
Amir is so physically weak
Stop Shooting Smith!!!!
Everything is bouncing out
DAMNIT REBOUND THAT FREAKING BALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We can't keep having Smith shoot and expect to advance.
GET A REBOUND!!!!!
Come on, Amir. You have to man up.
Not calling over the back I see!
Amir: 0 RB.
ISU is going to score if they get four chances to put it back.
Will someone block out Ejim?! Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
Why is it so hard for us to rebound? It's just unreal to me
Thanks for your 1/4 effort Lenzelle.
Smith I will pay you to stop shooting the ball!!!
I don't like the way we are playing. Look frustrated
Don't be afraid to call a loose ball foul on ISU.
What does someone have to do to get a foul called around here! BS calls one way, no calls the other. Come on refs!
Fouls are even at 6 each.
That doesn't mean it's an even-called game. That just means they missed about five calls. Should be ISU with 8 and OSU with 4.
"You win with people." - Woody Hayes
Nice steal Crafty Badger!
Officially concerned now. This is not the same team we've seen the last 5 weeks.
Does Amir ever have a pulse?
Wayne Woodrow Hayes
We need to keep driving the ball down low on offense. Get them in foul trouble. They are not that deep especially down low.
it is good to see that we are finally hitting free throws consistently
Small lineup is in! time to make a run!
these rebounds for ISU are pissing me off, and Amir cannot do sh*t
WHAT!!!! HE WAS HIT ON THE WAY UP!
Refs are calling this game a little inconsistently.
WTF Refs?! Go home, you're drunk!
We are better than this team. Simple. But we all know that in basketball, the better team doesn't always win.
That was bullshit
I GUESS ITS A FOUL TO HAVE A GUY STICK HIS FACE IN YOUR CHEST!
"The hoop is on fire" Did the students at Iowa State never play NBA Jam?
The roof would be the object on fire
These refs are calling this game way to close
BS call! Woah someone finally got a rebound!
Q is a natural
Q is so smooth!
THESE REFS ARE FUKING BLIND!
keep shooting Q
Ross got fouled
Refs need to get their heads on straight, too many calls one way, either don't call or make the call on both teams. Ridiculous.
27 over the back on rebounds but Aaron get called for that. Ugh.
Good hustle Scott
Nice try to keep it alive Scott!
This game is close because we're getting outrebounded 20-10
oh my god, these rebounds are f****** ridiculous
On radio now...anyone see an elbow to Craft's face?
Stay on your man! Holy crap. Giving up rebounds left and right, multiple attempts on three's, of course one will go in!
another offensive rebound, what the HELL!!!!!!
Bucks need to realize that rebounds off 24 foot shots dont fall 5 ft from the rim, they land 12 ft away.
The refs are awful.
ROSS GETS RAILROADED GOING UP FOR A SHOT, SAM STEPS TO THE SIDE WHILE A GUY GOES UP! WHERE IS THE FOUL? ON SAM!
THESE REFS ARE FUKING UP THIS WHOLE GAME AND IT HAS ME FUKING PISSED! COME ON!
Trey McDonald needs some court-time..... Buckeyes need some rebounds.
That was a bad call. Put a cork in it Kellogg!
We don't start limiting second chances, we don't advance
I hate teams like ISU. Firing up threes that lead to long rebounds and more threes. It screws up any rhythm for the game.
23-11 on the boards right now per Kyle. Ticky tack fouls and rebounding are killing us right now
we are getting destroyed on the boards 22-10
You can always tell how we're playing by the ref comments in here.
What is this rebound you speak of? Must be an Iowa thing.
I'm actually kind of rooting for OSU today (as much as I can stomach, anyway...I want an all-B1G Final Four, even though it probably won't happen).
It's with that caveat that I'll say this: Even with a couple missed calls, these refs are WAY better than B1G refs.
Very strong chance in 3 of the brackets, UM needs to make sure they step up in theirs! Then I think it will definitely happen!
I think Michigan is actually more likely to make it out - they match up ok with Kansas and pretty well with Florida - than MSU going up against a healthy Duke squad.
Appreciate it... The Bucks should be hindering isu a bit more on D and capitalizing on O in the same fashion...
out rebounded 23-11, that is putrid
Thad will be a shade of purple never seen before if someone on this team doesn't step it up and assert themselves
Only good thing is despite the rebounding margin, unreal 3's by ISU and the refs, OSU is right in this game and not playing great! They can do this!
As much as I love the 3-pointers like that, those type of shots aren't going to help us win.
There's no points for second place, gentlemen.
keep firing Q
Keep slashing Craft... Not stopped yet
6 three pointers! Can't last!
if only we could not suck at defense...the offense is fine
thats a basswackwards statement
3s and zone d...ISU reminds me a bit of Syracuse.
Except Cuse's guys are all 6'8" and can jump out of the gym
Oh man that was a pretty move by Q!!!!!!!!!!!
If this keeps up don't be surprised to see someone like Q step in on one of these three's by I.S. probably get a technical foul called on that. These refs are a complete joke.
Lets make a run to end the half.
Or give up a 3.
And I thought I was bad
Q with confidence is a beautiful thing
gotta love Q misses 1st four shots and has no fear
thats where Lenzelles minutes should go
I would love to be a fly on the wall during halftime to hear Matta rip the D about rebounding. They might go out back to do that drill with the bubble on the rim for 20 minutes.
Hopefully we are better against the perimeter shots and rebounding in the second half.
Defense is playing well. Forced 8 turnovers and ISU is shooting 36%. The problem is rebounding. 23-12 at this point.
yea, rebounding is putrid right now for us, at best
I feel good. I don't anticipate them shooting 43% from the 3 in the second half.
oh man, that ankle roll made me cringe on Babb
I will not be able to watch the half time show. It is going to be so annoying hearing Barkley say OSU will lose or something.
What I just said will be the change we will see in the second half, they will not make another 6 three pointers.
WHY WAS THAT NOT A CHARGE! FUKING REFS!
These look nothing like my Buckeyes that dismantled Iona. Definitely need to see a much better second half.
I think the difference is Iowa State is actually a solid team. They've got skill.
no way Bubu Palo is from Ames Iowa
The foul situation is my biggest concern. Need Scott on the floor. Amir can take the early bus east on I-70.
hopefully scott being on on the last possession doesnt pick up a foul
End the half on a good note...
Thats a play DT doesn't make last year.
Scott should never have the ball under 10 seconds.
Agreed. He had a hand-off chance for Q as well.
keep talking and turning it over Lucious
frustrating half, but time to make adjustments and come out and REBOUND!!!!!
ISU is definitely a different animal than Iona was.
Lenzelle Smith Jr is SO BAD. I've never disliked a player so much. He's Iowa States best player with his D2 athleticism and constant bricks..
Lol. No really, tell us how you feel.
I assume you mean on a team you like? I can name a few UM players who you might dislike more.
Plus I could make a case for Kosta Koufos! Guy was overrated and talked trash about Matta and the team. He was awful.
Yeah on a team a like I meant. I really could care less who down votes me lol it's plain as day how bad the guy is. I'm not sayin he's a bad human being but he's the difference between us being a great team and a really good one. We go on a run every single time he hits the pine lol if you have DVR go back and watch. We are a different team with him on the bench and I mean different in a good way. The dude is just hard to watch out there
perfect ending to the 1/2! Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy ;)
Won the first half, now lets obliterate them for the second half!
feed your lawn
Hahahahahaha +1 to you, sir
"just a guy, nothing more, nothing less" ~ Some troll then *poof* he was gone
First half winner. We can play much better.
23 rebounds to our 12 rebounds explains the close score in addition to their three point shooting. Box out guys and kick this team teeth in!
Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.
Didn't think rebounding was going to be this big of an issue. I know that lots of three pointers lend themselves to large bounces that make it easier for offensive rebounds, but we need to sure this up.
They need to come to the quick realization that its no cakewalk anymore, there's no walk over teams. You can't get out rebounded 2:1 and expect to progress.
We have weathered everything they have thrown at us. They destroyed us on the boards, hit their threes at a good clip and we even have some foul trouble. I am not sure if they have much else to throw at us, so if we don't let up in the second half we are in a great spot right now.
I agree. We've taken every punch and we're still ahead on the cards. Time to pull away.
I see Ravenel turning it up a notch in the 2nd half.
...and I imagine Thad has gone periwinkle by now.
Having foul trouble, losing the rebounding game, and Smith chucking up way to many shots... being up 2 at the half is a good sign. Matta is a great halftime coach and can make the right changes to pull away in the second half.
Smith is terrible period
I think his clown feet get in the way
Scott should not be allowed to have the ball at the end of the half
Use our depth and talent advantage in the second half... Let's do this, Buckeyes!
Couple of nice late baskets from Ross on a day when no one else wanted to step up next to Thomas.
Iowa State has five different players outrebounding the combined total of our two centers.
If the Cyclones go 6-14 from 3 in the second half, we probably lose. If they go something like 2-10, we're probably in good shape.
this definitely has me on edge so far... gotta keep playing great D and start rebounding.
At first, all of ISU's threes were contested...the last few were wide open
He calls the big 10 overrated but names 4 teams he said are very good. I don't get it.
Q has came to work today!
I don't know what's worse, LSJ's shot selection or Barkley's commentary. Ugh.
I'm going to vote Barkley.
They keep talking about rebounding but how do you outrebound a team when the ball shoots of the right to them? At least half of ISU's rebounds were balls going straight to them.
The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender. - Woody Hayes
That's where the guards have to get involved.
If everyone boxes out the ball goes right to the defender instead.
I think we'll be okay, folks. We didn't shoot particularly well (despite good looks, for the most part) and we did a crappy job on the defensive glass. I think we will settle in and re-focus, and win by 6-10. ISU's defense is bad, especially against the ball screen.
Everything is in OSU's favor but 3 pointers made and rebounds! I just don't see those 2 things continuing like that. Barkley is wrong, I don't think this game will be close. Either ISU continues to do what will be impossible or OSU will stop this mess and take over.
Rebounds we might improve on but don't expect the 3's to change, they are #1 from behind the arc for a reason.
I do expect the 3's to change because they hit some tough shots and I don't see Craft and Co. letting more of that happen. You watch!
halftime MVP are cyclown fans
The foul shot chants are growing on me
I'm impressed with their number and variety
Please downvote accordingly
oh man... this game is making my head hurt. it is to early to drink? I do have cold newcastle's in the fridge....
It is never too early to drink my friend. Cheers!
Especially on Sunday, better to get it out of the way early.
Just about to break out some brew myself... and my wife should be back soon with some treats from the taco truck!
its beer-thirty somewhere
Ugh......Clark Kellogg is terrible. I know he went to OSU but you would never know it by the way he is dogging the Buckeyes every chance he gets.
"Anything easy ain't worth a damn." - Woody Hayes
Barkley just needs to stop
he keeps saying "its only 4 teams that will be in next week." That is a quarter of the field idiot. With only 2 Pac12 teams, both who could be in a lot of trouble trying to go further.
Don'tt forget, he's a Pac12 and mountain west fan.
This game is very even right now and yet one team is playing great, one is playing subpar. I am not concerned unless these refs continue to make the mistakes they have been making.
Barkley: "Oladipo is stiull the best big guard defender in the nation"
what a crock of sh*t
Even with the offensive boards for ISU, the two teams have the same number of shots. Get a few of those loose balls, drive and draw some fouls, win this baby by 12 and head to LA. Who's with me?
If they get in foul trouble, the rebounds will get easier. Drive the lane like we did at the end of the half.
Dear Mr. barkley... Eat your words...
Charles Barkley is the Mark May of basketball... TERRIBLE!!
no, he's turrible.
At least everyone else on the panel is laughing at Chuck's belief that the B1G is overrated. Likely a quarter of the teams in the sweet 16 and possibly 6 of 16.
he has no idea what is goind on....
I actually really like Chuck and think he has good insights on the NBA but he just doesn't know college basketball. Tough when its not your job to follow it all year then you get put into the role of analyst for the tournament.
Agreed "Toledo" ... Clark Kellogg is TURRIBLE!
Sounds good to me, Buckeye Chuck!
well u never like to see someone get injured, hope Babb gets back in the game....
fyi, for anybody else wondering what the song is in the Subaru commercial with the dog, it's: Mount Moriah-The Letting Go
Bruno Mars is out of the game for Iowa State.
hahah thank you Melissa
Come on BUCKS. Start fast and play good D. Rebound that basketball!
Should've been another charge
THEY MAKE EVERY FUCKING 3. GUARD THEM
nice. we need a run after that foul to put some separation now
" need to score the ball" by far worst expression ever in basketball
Amir just cant get anything going. He just cant
I got some Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, Bell's Smitten Rye, Elevator Dark Horse, Hopsed and confused & some thirsty dog ale. Along with around 6 cans of Yuengling Traditional. About to crack open something.
Williams hurts this team. He needs to sit.
please call a foul when they shove their body into our driver
Attack and draw fouls
block out lenzelle
hang on to the ball amir and u got 3 points
ok, come on Amir, get some free throws, get back into the groove, see the ball go in the hoop and get some confidence
Amir has the weakest hands of any big man
i mean besides, take up space and pick up cheap fouls. what does Amir do?
Awwww, Chris Babb has a heating pad.
As weak as he is, we have to go inside
T him up
I'll stand in Amir's corner by myself. I think he will come up huge at some point this tourney.
When he gets the ball down low, I'm tired of watching him bring the ball down.... keep the ball chest level and be strong with it..
We all hope so
I have been in his corner all year man, he has the tools to be great, but he just does not use them with any consistency, but I can definitely see him comoing up with a huge block to save a game, but he needs to get better
I absolutely agree. Between him and Q I can't decide who I like more. Seeing them both struggle, then show flashes of brilliance is awesome. Can't wait till they both put it all together.
Looks like Smith has at least picked up his D some this half.
LMAO, did they just call him Looseless? HA!
Get a stop here!
was wondering when they would start exposing the back cut
+9 in turnovers. only up 2. holy moses.
The Clyburn kid can play
We have to wash Thompson's mouth out with Lifebuoy, after the game.
Thompson beasting and feasting
Nice shot! Is Rav in foul trouble?? Why hasn't he been playing?
zero fouls on Rav. Dunno what Matta is thinking.
Thompson was really missing from that first half too! He and Scott. I really think this game will change here soon. I can already see it!
Thompson continues to get better with each game this season
Aww did the poor baby get pushed? Let's call another fucking foul
a rare occasion where our starting lineup doesnt get outscored
typical Amir line 1pt 1 reb 3 fouls
If his stat line included fumbled passes he would lead the nation...
Amir just stick with it buddy. Keep your feet moving. We love you!
Sam is becoming more than Slam. Keep developing that jumper and with his athletic ability he will be in the NBA.
i want more Slam Thompson Lob .Gif's
Ravenel has no fouls.
Alert the masses Amir got a rebound!!
There is monster big man in that body I just know it!!!!
Amir gets his 3rd. Pleeeeeeze put in Ravenel.
Not sure if he is worth it but if Ben Howland gets fired, couldn't Tony Parker transfer without having to sit out a year? We need another big with Ravenel leaving, seriously!
what's up with these chants while we're at the free throw line? how many ISU fans made it out to Dayton?
It's the ISU band chanting.
Enter Scott and Q
Exit Lenz and Amir
Let's keep this going...get them a little rattled, get them throwing up nervous shots to respond.
i feel a slam thompson Gif coming on
3rd foul on Amir, best thing to happen to this team.
Feed the Tank inside!
You can tell a school has no basketball history when they retire the jersey of the 3rd leading scorer on a team that didn't win a championship.
MGoBlog Blocked Me On Twitter.
Craft is trying to set up Thompson and he just doesn't take advantage.
I wish DT would move without the ball/
I thought I was the only one to notice that.
We have no one who can guard Clyburn.
Not sure if it's been mentioned but I find it interesting that the Iowa State coach decided to wear a scarlet & grey tie today.
I wondered about that too.
Man, why doesn't Sam Thompson get more rebounds like that with the air he gets?
gotta make the easy ones
Like how we can hear a Rav moan on pretty much every rebound
I suspect Iowa State will hit a drought here soon . They can't hit everything can they?
I love Craft's offensive aggression lately.
Man Craft is right in Lucious's face and he still drills the 3
these 3's by ISU are unbelievable
Would really like to see us keep working the ball in.
Ejim quit crying
ATTACK the zone!
Lenzelle proving me wrong! That a boy
I'll give credit... hell of a shot by LSJ
That boy can't shoot!!!
If Lenzelle starts hitting 3s, this game is over....
Iowa State is hitting the shots against good defense. First team to 70 wins this one.
I think 80 might be more appropriate.
once OSU went up 70-69, I wasn't nervous a bit.
Okay Lenzelle - we see you again.
Oh no, another shot of confidence for Lenzelle just in time for isu to go on a run.
thatta boy lenz now take a seat
Need to string together some defensive stops without fouling.
It would be so nice if ISU went cold for just a little bit.
why not smith for scott?
Scarlet Mamba is heating up!
there goes 3 points
Boneheaded Turnover there by the Tank
its going to come down to silly things like that TO
Yet another bs call, thank you refs!
Hold on to the ball!
"Anyone can run the option. I can run the option."
Tank looking tired.
No Rav, it's not like you're supposed to guard the basket or anything!
CRAP - Now Lenzelle thinks he's a shooter.....PLEASE SIT HIM DOWN....PLEASE!!!!!
craft just needs to defend the big guys
haha, but seriously he does well on them
Gus Johnson says its an obvious mismatch with ejim and Craft. Yeah, on Crafts side!
CALL A FUCKING TIMEOUT
Anyone else think Deshaun looks distracted today? He's more concerned about acting for the refs and being upset about uncalled fouls than getting his butt back down the court and playing defense.
Yeah I was noticing that also. It's like he doesn't give a shit. Sleepwalking.
You mean aside from leading all scorers?
Dumb. This is not the same team from last weekend.
Ugly couple of possessions.
Those long rebounds... what can you do about them?
Ugh settle down guys!!
now this is starting to get out of hand.... WHAT THE F***, get your heads out of your asses.....
..out of hound maybe?
DAMMIT. BOX OUT! REBOUND!
god damn it guys who had opportunities to blow this game up and u turn it over 3 times
Well, here we go. Here comes 10 minutes of sloppy play.
Iowa State plsying scared. We get an 8 point lead and this game is over.
That's not the game I'm watching...
Watch ISU's shooting when we get up by six. They just been getting lucky those wild shots have been dropping. That's the sign of a scared team, uncomfortable to be down.
Is that you Bo Ryan? We won't milk the clock we push the score up!
ok boys, time to stop fooling around and separate from these clowns.
Freaking clown show out there right now. Good time out.
Stop with the turnovers.... 4 points off turnovers is killing us.
No, please keep it close. We insist.
That's it, i'm breaking out the Busch
<pops top> BUSSSSSCCCCCHHHHHHHHHHH
Drink one for me.
It's five o clock somewhere
Why would you not have Thompson run the baseline when they are in zone. With his athletic ability you get any penetration and you can lob the ball up to him.
we dont penetrate...we swing around the perimeter
4 people standing on the perimeter vs the zone is not the way to get it done
Kerry Coombs needs to show up and explain tracking and covering a ball. So frustrating. Piss poor performance all around.
Niang is a bitch.
we always hit a lul and then go like hell (I hope)
And thats how you beat a zone.
The offseason is the longest season.
Tank boom beautiful!!!!
I don't see that foul on Smith.
i thought lenzelle was a good reboundng guard?
Why is LSJ out instead of Thompson...
Toughness will win this. and rebounding.
Still can't rebound to save our lives.
That one ref hasn't been kind to us
Ok, I normally avoid the negative talk, but Zelle needs a seat.
I think Tank is just tired. Lenzelle just got his 3rd. He can go sit w/ Amir
Officiating is pretty inconsistent. I'm not sure what they will call or won't.
ISU may or may not be able to keep up production from the three point line, but one thing is certain, bs ticky tack fouls will continue to be made against us. Total joke.
Nyuk nyuk niang
I wasn't aware boxing out was a foul
The refs have seen so little of it today from OSU that they didn't know what to do and called a foul.
Any way to get a GIF of that bump? Where do people go to get GIF of in game action so fast?
People are posting so fast I'm just going to say cow farts and see if anyone notices.
Cowfarts? Is that a segway to start talking about global warming? :)
thomas should have got an assist for that just for passing it.
I need to see Slam put it down hard, preferably over top of Ejim or Niang at least once today.
OH my god.... these fouls are so pathetic
The over the back lack of calls is starting to get annoying, is it not a foul anymore? I thought it was!
I'm losing my mind over here saying the same thing. Over the back every time!
Q looking like the Iceman George Gervin! Smooth finger roll!
what the hell are these fouls!
Ross better post presence than Amir.
Thompson having 3 fouls is a REALLY big deal. Smith Jr. having 3 fouls is actually a blessing in disguise!
Faced with pathetic fouls...start making shots!
call him X The X factor!!
Noo... call the X factor the Q factor!!!!! :)
Ross was fouled there too but FU REFS! NOT GOING TO MAKE US LOSE THIS ONE!
Atta boy Q
Q is the man
Why does he not get Lenzelles minutes
You've got to be shitting me. Refs need to get out of here. Now Thompson is at three. WTF.
should have been an and 1..... what terrible officiating, these refs are so piss poor it is unbelievable........
Iowa State in the bonus this early is damn joke!
Here we go baby, Ross the Boss!
KEEP ROSS IN THE GAME
just got out of church...what"d I miss?
Wow call it both ways.
Q + Confidence =Success
Ross needs to play more. Give him some minutes.
Let's run away with this thing gents!
Grrrr. Going up double digits woulda been huge.
Ross is playing AGAMO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Q is taking over... THIS IS WHAT WE NEED!!!. Beautiful
It's all Q right now!
They look frustrated.
That Ross 3 was so important there. It pushed to lead to 9 and now ISU is starting to press and it is falling right into the buckeyes defense!
Ross, Thompson, Thomas, Craft, Scott should be the only players who see the floor for the final minutes.
And as I say that LSJ comes into the game... hopefully just until the under 8 timeout
Ross is Boss
Go Q! Need to avoid more fouls and make free throws down the road.
Here comes Zelle. There goes our lead.
Just like Wisco last week Q is hungry. Feed him the rock!
Keep on the gas. ISU is the kind of team that can hit a few threes fast and get back in this.
We were looking for a hero for this game...I think I'm seeing him now.
QQQQQQQQQQQQQQQ OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!
That is a small lineup they have out there. lol
Ross is on fire!
I need a #10 jersey
Q From the parking lot!!!
Man Lucious keeping them in it. LaQ on fire!!
Ross has been unbelievable
going real small now
Boss on a 10 point streak by himself.
Glad to see Q putting points up while Deshaun is on the bench. Hopefully Thomas is reenergized for the rest of the game.
5 more stops wins this game
the refs are horrible. They call a push on Slam and he didn't touch the guy. Then Q drains a 3, is knocked down and there is no call. Don't get it.
Ross is killing it. He's becoming what Thomas was on the team 2 years ago--that adrenaline shot off the bench.
Need to get Lucious to foul out. Dude has 3.
need to keep dude in he has 5 turnovers
Ross/Scott coming of age recently. The sophomore class needs Amir to step up and then they will clearly be living up to their potential.
Patiently waiting my Slam Thompson .gif
Q-ing it up way to go Clark
WOW, these refs are so freaking one sided... who paid these b*tch*s off
PHEW - Lenzelle just got his 4th....can he be done for the day PLEASE?????
That is a good play by Smith... horrid call by the officials
apparently we are calling hustle fouls now.
these refs have to be employed by espn
Given them the 1and1 already kind of sucks.
FINALLY, call FOR tOSU, fans should be going crazy
THAT WAS NOT ON SMITH! COME ON! THESE REFS DON'T KNOW OVER THE BACK FOULS? THESE ISU PLAYERS ARE RIDING THEIR BACKS! CAN'T GET A REBOUND WITH A PLAYER ON YOUR BACK!
I didn't know boxing out was a foul.
Wondering what the call was because he's done it all day
ISU, get the hell outta my state.
I hate the box out call. I think if the guy has the back to the other guy he pretty much can't foul him.
Is Ted Valentine calling this game?
Niang is a wang
