Minnesota is up 6 on OSU
After taking MSU to OT in Breslin. Talented team that just needs a signature win. Glad we were able to take one from them at the Barn.
I hate you so much. OSU is going win now. Go to hell.
Jinxes TOTALLY exist guys.
Good thing INTERNETRAGE anti jinxes work too
Nope OSU lost. Coach hasn't been on Amir's dick enough.
Oh brother. If Minny holds on and wins this might the first time one of these "hey guys...something awesome is about to happen" threads actually turned out ok. Seems like they ALWAYS end badly for some reason.
FreddyMercuryHayes for this one; for the anti-jinx/jinx reversal.
I've been hesitant to give Minny too much credit (maybe it's their punchable coach) but they may just be legit.
BTW, what exactly is the purpose of the raised floor? Is it for sightlines?
I'm going to -1 you if ohio comes back to win.
No easy road wins in the B1G
Ohio is dropping like a rock. Also what does it say about us compared to MSU if they went to OT against these two teams and we beat Minnesota in regulation without McGary and Robinson iii?
It says nothing.
It says that we have a really good team, even without McGary.
If you could not use the transitive property...yeahhhh that'd be great.
I'm not endorsing the transitive property, but this game showed that Minnesota is really good. They looked really good.
We beat this really good team. That strengthens my belief that we are also a really good team.
I was actually talking about ThadMattasaGoblin
Transitive property doesn't work. But this does elevate our Minnesota win.
Minny up 11 with 2 minutes left to play. It's going to take from ever though there are 5 timeouts between the teams.
This would be nice for us if Minnesota could pull this off. Makes our win there look better. Plus, we get them at home too. Chance for a sweep.
Don't forget tp plus me if Minnesota hold on.
Ohio State was a top 5 team a week ago
ESPN says Minnesota is up 14 with 1 minute left ... sound right?
Ohio just plain isn't very good offensively. It sucks that we don't get to play them at home, but the trip to Columbus isn't unwinnable.
My god. Even when looking into the eyes of defeat, Aaron Craft continues to just amaze me. He just competes. I've never seen someone take an inbounds pass like that and dribble the ball with such determination.
Remember this gentleman: when we are all old, telling our children and grandchildren of days past, we can proudly say "we lived in the era of Aaron Craft."
Oh god, shut the hell up
is in the mail.
We won't have to tell our children or our grandchildren about the great Aaron Craft. I'm sure he'll still be playing as a 36th year Redshirt Senior or something and they can judge for themselves.
Usually an upvote is good enough, but in this case I have to respond. Absolutely well done sir. I'm dieing laughing. Thank you.
I loved his comment so much that I upvoted your comment about loving his comment.
Reminds me of a story. My dad and I were talking during one of 1st UM games and when Jordan Morgan's name was announced for whatever play, my dad, a sparty, started going on about how this was Morgan's 17th year/been there forever sort of rant. So apparently, someone out there thinks the same about Morgan.
It's definitely a compliment.
I'm going to name children after him, just because of his grit and hustle.
He should be remembered as the only player to ever play hard in basketball. The first in history, and surely never to be repeated. He is a true hero.
You and me both, buddy.
If I have a firstborn boy, I'll name him Aaron Craft. If it's a girl, I'll name her Erin Kraft. Any additional child I bring into this earth shall bear the name of Aaron Craft's greatest of traits, beginning with "Grit," "Hustle," "Determination," "Defense," and my youngest, "Handcheck."
at least her teenaged suitors will be forewarned.
You're on fire! Thank you for absolutely MAKING my Friday morning!
Ahhh yes "grit & hustle". Media euphemism for "white basketball player". Sort of like the old "Athletic or Dual Threat Quarterback" thing in reverse if you will.
Yep. What was Novak known for? Grit and hustle.
Also, for white quarterbacks you can't forget about "underrated athlete". Anytime some white QB scrambles for >3 yards it has to be mentioned.
" Great game manager" - White QB with noodle arm who can't run
Oh you mean Trent Dilfer
But to be fair - Novak really deserved that reputation. Dude was a 6'4" PF who had to work his ass off not to get pushed around in the post every night. And honestly, Craft deserves it too - he's a pest defensively.
Now to be sure, there are plenty of white guys who automatically get labeled "gym rats" or "coach's dreams" with no justification, but these two legitimately fulfill the stereotype.
What I find funny is when I heard Dustin Fox on 92.3 in Cleveland the other day claim Craft is the best PG in the country. That is laughable.
I played some pickup basketball with Fox. That dude has got some ups. And this is after he retired.
The OSU offense is horrendous, but don't worry, when we play them they will look the 96 Bulls.
That's the nagging feeling I have. They're waiting until they play us to get their act together.
Screw O-lie-O!!!! Go Blue!!!
Nice W for Minnesota. I'm glad Ohio is getting exposed as a fraud. That #5 ranking was BS.
This was expected IMO they were not looking very good winning in ridiculous fashion but to b fair the gophers r legit that win at Minnesota is looking better and better
