cbs needs to seriously upgrade their play by play guys... Gus Johnson should be calling the final four... absolute atrocity
MBB vs. Ohio State Open Thread
All of this shit happened when he took Smot and Novak out... We just closed to gap to 2, why change it?
Yeah, I've had enough of these refs
TV crews should not have alumni of a school involved call the game. The alumnus's homerism always rubs off on the guys next to him.
We're getting sloppy and they just can't miss. Ugh.
Can we just fucking hit somebody?
This game was in our grasp and two terrible calls totally turned it.
I hope msu runs these fuckers
and by runs you mean "kicks them in the nuts and steps on their faces"?
The refs took over the game.
now we're just playing frustrated.
Rember when this was a close 2pt game and then the refs just threw it to OSU?
OSU is damn good. They don't need any friendly whistles. PSU or MSU has little shot against this team. Time to get ready for Thursday or Friday.
I'm going to smash everything in my house, This is getting hard to watch.
I definitely agree with the boards sentiment about these refs, but we did our job this tourney by beating Illinois. We're not experienced enough yet to knock off the #1 team in the country in the tournament.
disagree. we had every shot of taking this game.
then the zebra squad took over.
but if theyre just gonna call us for fouls any time we touch a buckeye, then just foul em. id smile if someone gave one of them an elbow to the noggin /notjoking
why don't we try LBJ's pattented "pass-off-face"?
Tough game. Yeah we aren't shooting that great and OSU's plaed better, especially in the second half.
But god I hate Big Ten reffing. I watch a lot of college basketball, especially in the past few weeks and no conference has worse officiating game in, game out then we do. Completely kills the game.
And no, I'm not trying to whine, we have fouled Sullinger a fair bit and got some calls our way in the 1st half. But a good official is like a good offensive lineman. If you never have to talk about them, they did their job. And almost every Big Ten game, the officiating is a discussion topic. Shame really, since the game is played by the players, not the refs.
Rutgers would disagree with you but yeah these guys are awful.
I used up all of my anger last tome we got hosed against Sullinger. I'm not even surprised.
talk about losing composure.....
It's not OUR fault
Give it a rest, there were a few bad calls in a row. It's going to happen in every game. The refs didn't make us stop playing defense on every possession since then. There's a reason OSU is easily the best team in the nation. Don't be whiny bitches.
Or miss 9 shots in a row. Every game has some bad calls on both sides, but that wasn't the difference in this game.
But it just so happens that these "few bad calls" only happen when Sullinger is involved and they happen in every game that OSU plays in.
I just don't understand how neither the Big 10 or the announcers notice this and everyone lets it happen and praises the shit out of Sullinger.
We were all over Sullinger in the first half, the commentators did point out that they were letting a lot go. The reffing absolutely wasn't perfect, but there's been far worse. If anyone truly thinks the refs are why we lost they need to take off the maize shades.
the bullshit officiating favoring Sullinger has been occuring all game. And let's not forgot the ridiculous free throw disparity in the first two meetings. Michigan hasn't played that great , but you would have to be blind to not see how that stretch changed the momentum of the game, as well as the preferential treatment for Sullinger has been getting all game.
We're a predominantly 3 point shooting team. They're a team that averages the most free throws in the conference because they play inside then kick out. The style of play is going to affect the amount of free throws taken, and they're always going to shoot more free throws than a team like ours.
2 point game. Should be our ball, but osu gets ball when Sullinger clearly hit it out of bounds. Now it's a 5 point game. Morris gets raped on offense, turns it over. Sullinger bulldozes into THjr, blocking foul w/2 free throws. Now it's a 7 point game.
So instead of having the ball down 2 with a chance to tie or take the lead, we have the ball down 7. Refs fucking blow
The out of bounds play was a close call, and could have gone either way. On the Morris TO, he dribbled into the lane, and into a double team, and whether a foul takes place or not that's usually not called. The blocking foul on THjr was bullshit. So I count 2 points. Ultimately, if the refs happen to change the momentum of a game, a team has to change it back with their play. M proceeded to miss their next 9 shots. Ballgame. Frankly, this board is the equivalent of the dude at the Y that calls foul any time he gets contact, instead of the dude who shakes it off and comes back harder next time.
You aren't a Michigan fan. Don't pretend otherwise. If you were, you'd have made an appearance yesterday when we clinched a tournament bid.
Can we get a banhammer for this clown yet?
Let me guess, this is the same kind of response you get when you occasionally run into another human being? You realize nobody here thinks there is any value in anything you say, right?
It's not about disagreeing with you, it's about you being a complete whiny asshole.
You should read some of the shit you post. If that doesn't embarass you nothing will.
Are you sure you're an M fan in Ohio and not an Ohio fan in M?
We get it, you're a troll. Hilarious.
Stay in ohio, don't come back.
Let me get this straight......
You live in Ohio, and you're calling Michigan a wasteland?!?
Stone cold tournament lock for a team that no-one gave a chance of making the NIT. Stop complaining.
Just admit it, you're either a troll, or a buckeye fan in denial.
You must remember it particularly well, since your demeanor resembles that of a middle-schooler. Read your posts. YOU are the only internet tough guy here. No one enjoys reading what you have to say. Not because it's wrong, but because you are an asshole, and a troll.
huh? go fuck yourself
How did I know you would show up in the end if we were losing. I'm looking forward to the day nobody here has to deal with your shit. Your two big meme's since you've signed up:
This team will NEVER make the NCAA tourney, and
NO WAY TRESSEL DID IT I MET HIM HE'S A NICE GUY.
Get the fuck out of here troll. I hope you get banned today.
Sound familiar? You're the one coming in here anonymously and talking shit about what is objectively a good team. You're the one with nothing valuable to add, who has been flat wrong on the two things you continually bitch about.
I am sure you are a beast in person. What I wouldn't give.
Are you still butthurt that your golden boy Jim Tressel ended up being dirty? You talked so much shit about how there was no way the rumors could possibly be true. Boom, they're true, you disappear for the week.
seen refs change the momentum of a game as quickly as this game. Doesn't help that we haven't really hit our shots either.
Oh well, still in the tourney(I assume) and extremely proud of this team for exceeding everybody's expectations this year.
You're right. It was a series of about 6 calls.
Eat shit and die. OSU is a dirty program.
