9/11 - never forget. Oh - and read the Ramzy piece - with a box of Kleenex handy.
My buddy gave me a ticket to that game for $5 bucks - to this day something I still remember and also the greatest $5 bucks I’ve ever spent!!!!
I hope you’re right about Chris. I also wish we could tear VCA down and build something with some character. It’s a cavernous eyesore. Thanks Andy Geiger - that eyesore will be your legacy for the next 40-50 years.
When I was in school in the early 90’s, that was the place to be. The Jimmy Jackson years. Still remember that IU game when we won in OT. Man was that incredible.
Happy to see it’s going to remain open and viable. Hope someday soon I can get back there and see a game. Be great to be able to go to another game with my Dad.
That Sparty game in 98 or the hoops regional final against TTUN in Lexington in 93. It’s a toss up for me as to which was the bigger disappointment for being in the building. I remember each like it was yesterday.
Turns out we’re pretty good at this football thing over in Columbus.
One of the greatest. RIP Hondo
I wish this kid nothing but the best of luck.
Great to see him playing so well this year. Dude is about to get PAID!!!!
There are so many things wrong with this team that bashing them on a message board seems pointless. All I can say is I’m disappointed in how things have turned this year while on the other hand, I’m super excited that this season is almost over. I see min two games and maybe as many as four left.
Hopefully what we have coming in next year is legit - cause this team needs all the help in can get!
Between watching this disaster on my phone and watching the CBJ on the NHL pkg TRY and play hockey - good god what an awful sports afternoon. I’m not sure which team was worse. Neither team had any effort or heart. Just utterly pathetic and lackadaisical!
I usually don’t miss Ohio State hoops but I decided that today wasn’t worth watching so I went ice skating with my daughter and missed the game. Doesn’t appear as though I missed much. How many turnovers did we have today? North or south of 20?
Kaleb has been pretty awful on some nights but it isn’t all on him. Our guard play has been horrendous all season - and worse since we got in conference play. We need to stop turning the ball over as many times as we do AND Kaleb needs to stay on the floor. If both of those don’t happen - this team will be lucky to make the NIT.
That was a BRUTAL game to watch. I have nothing good to say about that game - except thank goodness it’s over.
I was at that game in 93 - that was the best game that team played all year! Lawrence played lights out against his old coach Bobby. He was pumped!
Make Kaleb come off bench. Go with small ball. And please take the ball out of CJ’s hands. Him trying to dribble through 3 players never ends well - and he always looks surprised at the turnover.
Don’t turn the ball over so many time and make your free throws. If we would have done those two things tonight I believe we would’ve won that game. Totally different - and frankly better team when Kaleb is on the pine. Glad they didn’t quit - would like to see Washington get lots more minutes. He’s the only one on the roster who can create his own shot! Arhens also impressed me.
Wont be our last loss of the year - but at least the kids played hard.
The bubble of playing Wednesday of the big ten tourney?
At this point I just hope we win enough to make the NIT.
That will be a short conversation. The Wesson boys are nowhere near the Sullinger boys in terms of talent.
This team isn’t good - at all. We can’t shoot. We’re very VERY lazy. We can’t defend. And we have the killer instinct of a butterfly. We will most likely be winless in January.
Best part about tonight’s game was seeing highlights of that IU / OSU game back in the day. One of the greatest sporting events I ever witnessed live. Man was JJ special - truly a once in a generation player. I keep hoping Ohio State can get back to those days someday - but sadly it doesn’t look like it’s gonna be this year.
Bingo. Nailed it!
I can’t decide which is more glorious. The Eagles losing or the fact that a couple Buckeyes were the major contributors to that loss.
Its a great day to be a Buckeye fan in Philly.
The disdain for the wolverweenies is real!
Best of luck in your future endeavors Mr. Davis.
Media loves those southern schools - shocking.
