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.
We never play Slippery Rock in the Tourney (at this point in time that is not possible)
But it could be if they keep getting better
Having just moved to pittsburgh im gonna have to make my way to slippery rock. I must admit though im not very well versed on the entire history of our love affair with them.
I wouldn't know who to root for.
Sweeeet revenge against Ohio coming soon!
The Ohio State University's supporters will never let Michigan forget it if the Ohio Bobcats get an upset. I actually wonder about the future of Brady Hoke's "Ohio" meme if we lose the basketball game. Would he continue to do it? Probably, I suppose. Would Brandon? Would Beilein?
Beating Ohio U. becomes a real imperative. A pressure game, against a good team, on what is hardly a neutral court -- it will be
a virtual home court atmosphere for the Bobcats.
[Ed.- Sorry, I momentarily thought our regional action was in Columbus. Silly me, thinking Columbus was in the Midwest when of course it is a well-known part of the West.]
This game gives me an awfully bad feeling. I remember Loyola-Marymount.
The only reason you could say that Columbus is in the west is that we're Michigan, the Champions of the West
any clue what time the game is on Friday? did a quick search and I didn't see any game times out yet
Do we use the buckeye logo for them? This is some weird karmic implosion
I say we use the buckeye logo with a bobcat in the center of it
anyone know what time we play?
Awesome mascot aside let's kick their ass.
I have been a Michigan fan since I can remember and was mocked because I grew up in Ohio, but I went to OU for my 4 year degree and love the place as if its my second home
Rock and a hard place for sure. I'm curious as to how you have negative 50 points??!!!??
As a former student of both u of m and ohio university I have no problem rooting for michigan. If they managed to play uva I'd have all my schooling covered.
how was the UM to uva transition? i am finishing undergrad here and heading to uva for medical school. Any suggestions/ideas about places to live/things to do/etc?
Charlottesville and Ann Arbor have their similarities... If you enjoy the outdoors there is a ton to do here. Also there is a great music scene. There are different neighborhoods depending on what you want. What are you looking for?
We are technically in the South so that is a major difference. Any specific questions?
A. I'm drunk. annnnd B: Fuck ohio....C: good talk
Ohhh Athens. It hosted my college debut, and also ruined it faster than you could ever imagine (below). But now it's "t"Osu until I prove myself worthy of UM grad school. Yup.
Met Frank Solich once when I worked around the Bobcat facilities. Strapping ol' lad.
Nothing i would call a quality win. Played Louisville close.
Looking forward to a scouting report if not already posted.
And gottlieb picks Ohio to upset us. FWIW he's picked three 12 seeds over 4 seeds.
...to beat Michigan. Blah blah Ohio defends the 3 blah blah Michigan dies by the 3....he is the ultimate Delta Bravo....
Ohio only lost by 5 earlier at Louisville, they ain't terrible at all.
But there's a reason you're at -20, pal
Obviously, when Hoke got us all to start saying 'Ohio,' it was b/c he knew this would happen down the road. There are no limits to the man's wisdom...
(Oh, and also gotta love the committee's sense of humor sending Sparty to Columbus.)
