further adventures in Jed York being unsuited for his position
MBB vs. OSU Open Thread
I seem to remember this in another open thread before another Big Ten game...hopefully that's a solid predictor of the outcome.
That was the goal. Unfortunately it didn't work. I guess I'll start a new silly superstition for our next game as the underdog.
Zack is gonna go off tonight!
Just cracked open a Hop Slam Ale courtesy of Bell's. It's going to be a great night!
Miller Lite is giving away a free case of beer if you buy a couple of frozen pizzas. Not my first choice, but who can turn down free beer? Not me, that's who.
Boston Lager. I wish I had some HopSlam. I usually only drink a six-pack per season given the $17.99 price tag. It is heavenly though...
Does anyone have a stream other than ESPN3? For some reason ESPN3 doesn't work for me at work.
Thanks. The other sites gave me crazy spyware last time. I trust the mgovideo link.
I want to punch Thad Matta in the face.
Sullinger earns his money in the paint.
I knew he was being paid all along, no surprise.
Well somebody is pissed off. Meaningless +1s for all, just to balance it out.
Dallas is the definition of a "hairless nut".
Greg Oden had the same problem... Ohio sucks.
Is Sullinger not starting?
Well this has started about as well as expected.
I have to say, this Buckeye defense looks legit.
These guys need to finish at the rim, they look scared that they are that close to the basket.
MSU game started 6-0
IIRC he didn't play well in the game at Crisler either.
On the board, now setttle down.
Guys! Guys! I can see the where the ball is regardless of where it is on the court! And the score updates like instantly instead of after the other team is on the other side of the court! This ESPN thing has it goin on.
I hope he doesn't try to do to much tonight. When he presses his game suffers. Just let the game come to you Darius. Lets Go!
Poor Dana Jacobson!
I have no audio, but did she lose some bet with that buckeye on 1st and 10?
Ya, she always bets with Jay Crawford from First Take. She usually has to read something over the air after The Game, but I'm sure he thought that was getting old.
Oh Dana Jacobson. You could at least mouth an "Eff OSU" to the cameras, a la Notre Dame.
that is all.
God! TV is now on mute
Hardaway needs to have a big game in addition to Morris. Let's hope he finds his stroke from behind the arc
Speaking of nicknames...looks like Morris' teammates call him "D-Mo". I like that a lot more than The Butterfly
Craft is a fucking pest. He is that guy that you want to fucking punch in the face when he is guarding you.
Aaron Craft is my least favorite player....ever.
I hate John Diebler more.
We have gotten Morgan a few attempts inside and he just can't finish yet against elite competition..we could end up with a really balanced offense with better/more developed big guys inside
I can feel it that Novak will have a game like he did against Michigan St.
Stu WTF are you doing thre?
When Smotryz goes over the back it is a foul and when Sullinger does it, nothing. Great.
Sullinger is a super star. Didn't you hear the announcer he gets super star calls.
How on any planet is that a three point play? Nobody touched him.
Physical play of any sort is discouraged.
Morris with the rare dunk
These refs are garbage. My god.
When you go to the home gym of the number one team in the country you're not gonna get the borderline calls
Borderline!? You touch an OSU player and it's a foul. Sullinger has gone over the back at least 3 times already but no call.
I don't know but what looked like he jumped up and down, I don't know if I had a bad view of that but it really looked like both feet came off the ground.
Big Ten officiating is a joke. The home team gets 10 points worth of horrible calls every game. It's really frustrating.
Smotrycz is going to have a lot of opportunities because Sullinger's been guarding him a lot outside, he rushed that drive, could have gotten an easy layup/dunk but he could really open it up for our offense if he could make some shots
