One of these days I'll be lucky enough to meet Ramzy at one of these 11w events, where I'll bumble together enough words to let him know how big a fan I am of his writing, but will fail miserably at emphasizing to him just how much impact his writing has on me, this site, and thousands upon thousands of Buckeye Nation. I'll freeze up, for sure.

The guy is Pulitzer material, ten times over.

The BW3 in Polaris started off with a handful of us at the bar watching and rooting with full audio throughout the bar. By the start of the 4th, management stopped over to us to ask what we were watching. By the start of the Elam Ending, the entire bar was all in, shouting the Crew to victory.

Can a dead-of-summer, Sunday noon hoops tourney take the city from sleepwalking to chest bumps and high-fives? If there are Buckeyes making noise in it - you bet your sweet ass it will. 

What a game. Atmosphere was lit here in the city. Bring it home, fellas.

Not sure they had a school the represented. Seems like one of the many all-star squads in the tournament. I remember hearing their story of origin last year - which was the first year they entered, and made it all the way to the finals. But they had James Michael Macadoo (UNC, Golden State Warriors) on the team last year. He didn't play this year for some reason. Good for us.

I don't understand why they'd not play the winner of the game  that played right after them. I was super excited thinking Overseas Elite and Loyalty is Love were on the other side. I was hoping they'd get a chance to stay away from them until the final.

This game was awesome. Craft was dominant at times. McCamey was a huge pickup - just like Taylor Battle was about to be last year, before the drama with the payouts made players quit on the spot and destroyed the chemistry. It's crazy to think this versions team has made this run when the first two years they were basically carried by Sully. For them to make this run without DeShaun Thomas who was supposed to anchor the team is saying a lot about their play during this tournament. 

I hope for a good game on Sunday. Would love to see the upset. Hell, today was a pretty big upset. Anything can happen.

If it maintains this level of play, Carmen's Crew has a legitimate shot at the tournament crown.

I love watching our former Bucks play it's such a treat to see the band get back together, and this third rendition of the crew has been as entertaining as the first two TBT Buckeye teams. But it pains me to say that our crew is likely the 6th or 7th best team in this tournament - at its absolute best. They need both Sully and DeShaun Thomas if they'd truly want to make run at the crown. And likely BJ Mullens, the three of them, to win.

They're gonna have some big matchup problems in the quarter finals, if any of the top 3 seeds advance. Hope Jimmer's #3 seed squad upsets both #1 and #2, and you'd hope we can get revenge for getting bounced easily by them last year. And we had both Sully and Oden and still got smacked pretty good.

Still can't wait for 8/1. Go Bucks!

Wow, had no idea he was sick. He actually had some game, I was floored when I saw he put on 60-70 lbs and was still trying to play QB after college. 

Sad story but thanks for breaking it to me, Dan. I'm headed to KY tomorrow for the 4th, will crack a beer in his honor.
