"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
This is awesome. Beat Ohio
beat ALL the ohios.
edit: derp. meant to put this under the other image. still works here.
When I heard that Ohio was playing us as well as Loyola, I just figured they were put in the tourney twice to increase their odds of making it past the sweet 16 this year!
gif of the bobcat punching the Buckeye mascot?
No, the other one.
no really...beat Ohio. that's awesome
Which one are we playing?
We're playing "Bobcats"...Ohio is a 2-seed in the East.
do you think calling ohio "ohio state" would bug em?
Although calling them "THE Ohio University" would probably bug them and TSIO at the same time . . .
Wow, now we can say Beat Ohio and actually mean it.
We always MEAN it when we say "BEAT OHIO!!!"
What you were looking for there was Bro-hio.
BEAT THE BOBCATS
coming into the tourney. Hopefully another week off doesn't make us FLAT again. Think, take high percentage shots, block out .... limit the wild threes early in the clock ... Tim
I love beating Ohio!
Aren't they tOU?
Couldn't stop laughing at the irony when it was announced. Beat Ohio
We got a better draw than the 3 seed Georgetwon did so I don't really care about the whole 4 seed thing.
A win over Ohio U gives us a second round game against (most likely) Temple. That's so much better than our last couple 2nd round games: #1 Duke and Oklahoma with Blake Griffin.
Well they are mad at us for stealing their name
We didn't steal it. The school in Ohio did with all its cheers ("OH-IO," etc.).
both of them
both of them
Being a Kent State grad, I'm pretty familiar with Ohio (not that Ohio). They are streaky behind the arc, very quick, and athletic. They rank near the top of NCAA in steals. When their shots are dropping they can be a load. At the same time, they dont' really have a lot of height under the rim and rely almost exclusively on their guards to make plays. I'm still trying to decide whether I like this matchup.
Additional Note: Walter Offutt, a transfer from Ohio (yes that Ohio), plays for Bobcats. He has had a very good year and was a regular contributor for Buckeyes as a freshman.
Plz provide full breakdown by tomorrow. K thanks bye
before correcting himself. You'll have to appreciate State's inferiority complex reaction to that.
All your Ohios are belong to us.
The real Ohio is now going to be referred to as "THE Ohio University". The school in Columbus is still "Ohio". It's a further knock at the Buckeyes.
...then give Temple (if they are around) something to remember on the way out of the MAC.
and all the rest of the non-football sports are in the Atlantic 10. Only their football is in the MAC (although that was the most expensive piece to extract to escape back to the Big East).
Has anyone seen a time yet for the game? Do they annouce the times tonight?
BEAT OHIO!! I made this thread a couple days ago and it didnt work out that well. This time should be different. GO BLUE!!
When it comes down to it, I don't mind Michigan dropping to a 4 seed. I would actually rather play UNC than Kansas in the S16. I just personally think UNC is more beatable for us.
But lets not get ahead of ourselves, only think about THE Ohio University.
I think us calling OSU "OHIO" has something to do with playing OHIO in the first round.
Is the Bobcat mascot going to come along? I want to shake his hand.
They required him to resign after his awesome performance. Maybe wanted to preserve him going out "on top"
... I'm just saying, we know he'll take you down without warning.
