- Given that Purdue was surrounding him with 2 or 3 people digging at his hands whenever he touched the ball in the post, I'm surprised it wasn't a higher number of turnovers. The dichotomy of the definition of a foul between front court and back court players is baffling. KW will come out at the end of a game having shot maybe 3 foul shots, and looking like he was attacked by a crazed bird of prey while he was wrestling a grizzly bear. But a 3 point shooter will end up shooting free throws if his defender breathes on him heavily while he's in the air. Where is the consistency in that?
Wow, what an optimist!
Wish I could give you multiple ups for this comment. Too many on here who only see the negative side of this team. When they move the ball and are given a bit of space to work (without getting mugged), they can compete with any team in the NCAA.
I'm hopeful that they got that ugly stretch of "me first" basketball out of their systems, and now realize that playing team ball is what will win games.
Pardon my ignorance, but how does one define a Quadrant 1, 2, 3, or 4 matchup?
The more I see of Coach Holt and his actions, the more I am thankful that he is at OSU.
GO BUCKS! Slay the Nittany Kitties!
Signed in just so I could upvote this....from Myrtle Beach.
Congrats to Joe, but why curse him with the Bengals for 10+ years?
Sure seems to be a lot of slipping and sliding on that floor. I joke, but being over ice has to create the potential for condensation issues.
Can we please move to a venue where we aren't playing on boards over a damn ice rink!?!
Has anyone checked the reporter who released this story for ties to our competition. I wouldn't put it past Satan or Hairball to fabricate a story like this to gain an edge in recruiting. For that matter, If I was in Dabo's shoes....
So he can gain a national reputation at OSU, then cash in at the next shit show program looking for a quick fix? Day needs an older established professional for this job. One who is looking for a long term home where he can continue the pursuit of excellence that he has historically displayed.
Agree with you about Williams. The kid is a burner.
I have to disagree with you about passing on the Heisman ceremony. I have a feeling that would come across to the public as a bad case of sour grapes, and could affect next years voting (when Fields should be the frontrunner).
This is an amazing time to be a Buckeye! Enjoy, people.
This team is special. Can't wait for March!
Don't forget that our #6 Men's Basketball team plays our non-rival at noon today.
Congratulations! Hope you two have a long & happy life together.
Just read the article. Not a single word about how well the Buckeyes played. The whole thing was about how badly he & his team performed. Oh yeah, his Freshman Phenom was sick...typical Roy Williams.
My heart sank when I saw him in the arena. But the good guys just played through his idiocy.
It was a beautiful thing! Make mine a Maker's Mark.
So proud to be a Buckeye! We sat about 15 rows up, behind the bench last night. The disappointment on the faces of the home team crowd was something to behold. The first half in there was LOUD, but things got pretty quiet about halfway through the second half. When the O-H-I-O chant started you could see Andre Wesson break into a "cat that ate the canary" smile. At that point there was a mass exodus of unhappy baby blue clad people. That just stirred us on even more.
I wish I could upvote this a hundred times.
1979 - That's the year I graduated from OSU. Glad to see we finally got a good coach to replace Woody & Earle.
