Notre Dame vs. #3 Ohio State
ND up 8 with about 1 minute left in the game.
After two turnovers and an AWESOME (/s) foul....
Notre Dame loses by 3. Ohio State survives.
Lots of teams seem to be getting the bounces this year. Michigan just can't see to get the breaks and can't finish.
Trey's steal and dunk after McGary stepped on the baseline vs. Sparty and then the miracle 3-pointers, after Kansas's epic meltdown.
But, you're right. Not getting them this season, thus far. But I'll take one in a huge road game later this year.
Fair enough. Hope it comes back around and Michigan can win a big road game later this season. 2014 please be better!
But McGary didn't actually step on the baseline. That was a blown call.
Why would you consider the 3-pointers "breaks?" Miracle 3-pointers are half court shots. Those 3 pointers came directly from the practice floor. Trey was squared up and got a clean shot off. That's just a clutch play.
Also, I don't see Trey's steal and dunk against MSU as a "lucky break" - it was just a great play.
Fuck Notre Dame. They can't even do this right.
Can't trust ND, is what GG loved to say!
Big Ten teams winning their OOC games is going to make it easier for us to make the tournament. Glad to see ND choke
That is so Ohio State of them.
I'm not even mad, I'm just impressed!
14-3 run in 45 seconds.
Nothing should honor Anchorman 2 IMO
That is very impressive.
Ohio killed ND with a trident.
Not how I wanted the game to end but the schadenfreude from this should be amazing.
I remain remarkably unimpressed with OSU, despite the comeback today. Just feels like one of those teams that looks good on paper but gets bounced early in the tournament.
They are a good team but not a top 3 or #1 seed caliber team. They got bailed out tonight and their schedule has been laughable. Wait till they get a real road test at Breslin. They will get exposed.
So really... this is best case scenario for M and the rest of the B1G? Ohio comes into conference play with a shiny record and ranking, only to lose a half dozen or so games, thereby confirming how awesome the B1G is at basketball.
Just saw the highlights. That was a shameful no call on Craft at the end of the game. The refs are supposed to be calling hand checks but it still all goes to shit at the end of the game. Blatant reach in before it went out of bounds. The lack of consistency between the way the last two minutes are called and the rest of the game has always baffled me in basketball.
This a million times over. The whole "let 'em play at the end" philosophy is the worst.
We almost blew our own game. It might not be a good idea to make fun of other teams.
I love a good Notre Dame fail. Too bad red faced Kelly isn't the basketball coach.
Somebody needs to ask Craft who was harder to gaurd: Glenn Rice or Glenn Robinson?
Dude is about two birthdays younger than me I think.
Michigan blowing a lead with a big ten title on the line and this game might be the worst chokes I've ever seen with a minute to go.
Also maybe throw our game with kansas last year in there.
Also I lol'd at this:

“@GottliebShow: Things worse than Garrick Sherman’s beard …go” your ability to stay eligible at Notre Dame
OSU is due for several letdowns at some point this season.
Michigan's best basketball is ahead. Damn well might as well be us that hands their asses a loss.
Those Damn Catholics had it coming to them today. Luck of the Irish my ass....
Is this really what we've come to?
ESPN has the summary play-by-play here - scroll down to about 1:45 left in the 2nd half and then read the play exchanges. That had to be something to watch for Notre Dame fans, and not in a good way obviously.
I mean, at the 1:15 mark, they took a timeout, then turnover, OSU scores, turnover, steal, OSU scores, turnover, steal, foul and OSU makes both FTs to bring it to within one possession about 30 second of regulation later, and then it goes downhill.
14 of those 31 points came in the final 50 seconds of the game.
Hope they are in Bolivia...
Thread Epic Fail
Fast enough for me. 2013 can go to hell. Thats all I got.
And now ND's leading scorer, Jerian Grant, is out of school because of an "academic issue."
I'm guessing ND is going to lose at least a few games they would have otherwise won if they had him playing through the rest of the season.
