I hope Parris gets drafted by the Saints to balance this out! That would be lethal!
The Bucks are on the bubble and if they expect to make it to the big dance they need to earn a signature victory on the road. I like the way we match up this year more than we did in Matta's last year. It will all boil down to 2 things that have plagued us all year:
- Foul Trouble
We haven't had a big W since December and its a matter of time and I believe it happens Saturday. Let's step on some turtles!
I think a lot of it has to do with there isn't anything to do before the game right around the stadium. The closest bar is Varsity Club I believe. If they played at say Nationwide it would give fans more to do prior to tip off with all of the bars and restaurants. I hate when I have to pay a ton for parking and still walk 15 mins to get into the VC Arena. If I could get there early and grab a bite and maybe a drink or 2 I think it would be a lot better. I know it likely wont happen but I can dream right?
I agree tickets are too high right now and something needs to be done but I don't have a fool proof answer yet but just my opinion is if I go to any sporting event I like to make an evening/afternoon of it and not just park, go to the game, and leave.
I will always love Thad for everything he has done for this University but it was time and I wish Thad nothing but the best!
Whatever moves the needle. Football fans that actually follow the sport would have something similar to this:
Also keep in mind fellow buckeye fans, they are PRESEASON polls. This will change mightily come October
Is it April 13th yet?
Nothing a few beverages cant help with
Its always nice to know winter is coming to a close and when Madness begins it means warm weather is around the corner but also that the the spring game is only 3 weeks away
In my opinion, its just a tough sell to some of the fans. I love OSU hoops but the affordable tickets are up in the nose bleeds and parking is usually a nightmare. I think more affordable tickets with parking would bring more fans in. Like a gameday special 1st come 1st serve for extra tickets should be dirt cheap the day of. The past few games ive gone to it has been embarrassing seeing how many empty seats we have and how quiet/empty it is.
Hell, wouldn't it be fun to have a few games at Nationwide to bring more fans to pregame, grab a bite, etc to pack the house. The shot has nothing around it (close walking distance) to do before the game
ttun fans will take this as a win and might even hang it from the rafters like they do every time Brady wins
With as poor as our linebackers were last year, I hope its an open competition and that we see a significant improvement beginning April 13th. There were so many bad angles, bad reads, missed tackles, inability to recover a fumble, inability to drop back in coverage, poor block shedding, etc. It made it worse last year that almost nobody was being rotated.
Washington has his work cut out for him. This was honestly the most painful to watch linebacking core I have ever witnessed. We will be back to being great in 2019 (fingers crossed!)
Yeah but did they pass the eye test?
Odds Paul Finebaum strokes the sec's shaft and defecates on the B1G...
Then goes into hiding when his 2 teams from the sec that he beat off all year poop the bed in the postseason
Its a night and day difference from last year to this year. Last year we had 3 guys that could go for high teens or 20's a game (Tate, Williams, Bates-Diop) with Jackson and Wesson chipping in. There is not a guy on this team that can take over a game and we saw it last night when ttun pulled away we were lost yet again.
The refs did have a some selective calls again against us but ultimately the better team won. I was hoping Kaleb's technical would fire up the bucks but it was already going downhill. This squad reminds me of the 2007 bucks. Had success last season but really struggling to get points this season.
The good news is this team isn't quitting. the shots just aren't going in and reinforcements are coming next season.
The bad news is the ball isn't going in the hoop and there isn't a consistent player/scorer on the roster
It will be background noise while I consume all the food I can at my buddies Super Bowl party
ttun is playing some really good ball. watching the Nebraska game Saturday was painful as both teams really struggled to find an identity and the talent level looked more like high school hoops than college hoops. Its not knock on either team but it was some very sloppy basketball. We will always have the chance to win but our defense must improve.
Can I ask why this game tips at 9pm on a Tuesday? Seems silly to start a game this late but I suppose ill take my Metamucil and power thru!
Both have had their cases of the drops but I fully expect them to have big senior seasons this year!
Let's hope the Cavs trade JR for Conley! (Won't happen but let me dream!)
As long as we make the tourney, I will be happy! I don't think we will go far this year but its always nice having a horse in the race for some MM
