Official Beat Ohio Pre-Game Thread
I'm nervous about the game today. OSU always plays great in the BTT and this is Crafts last shot at Michigan. Hopefully we wake up from yesterday
We'll be fine...Go Blue!
"I think Jobu needs a refill."
I'm guessing we dig a hole and have to dig our way out in the last few minutes. AKA every Michigan game.
We're going to the B1G title game to play staee, I can feel it in my tiny little heart.
Final Four run from there.
As was discussed yesterday, every single time we've had to face OSU in the Big Ten Tournament, we've lost - twice in the semifinals and in the quarterfinals in every other case. Hopefully, the trend reverses today. That being said, we're now down to eight possible outcomes in the BTT and we're still a slight favorite with an estimated 29.25% chance to win it all (Ohio State, interestingly, is the least favored - 17.77% estimated chance to win).
Remember it's 2014!
2-seed is a lock but it'd be nice to be in the Midwest not in Arizona's bracket. It'd also be nice not to go 0-7 vs OSU in the BTT.
Since 1979, only four champions have come from lower than a three.
That's because those teams are good and teams that are good usually win. You could probably randomly seed FA Cup style and get almost all the champions out of the top 12 ranked teams.
I'm not sure seeds really matter, especially since the tournament isn't reseeded so by the second week the advantage has often evaporated.
Beat Ohio! I'm in Fort Wayne right now.
One- seed officially up for grabs only need two wins
I really didn't want M to play Ohio, but alas, it is happening. We better beat them.
Woke up hating all things Red
ALL THINGS RED he says!!
Certainly Craft's cheeks
So many minutes until the game starts... arrrgggghhh..
Guess I'll finish GoT season 3. Though I only have 1 more episode to go... Arrrggghh....
For any GoT fans, this is pretty funny. HBO still has it unlisted on their YouTube page, so it's pretty new. TV SERIES SPOILERS THROUGH SEASON 3!!!!
Alright. I want to win the BTT and get a 1 seed. I convinced myself
Just come out of it healthy and worry about the real Tourney! It's always good to beat Ohio but doubt being a 1 versus 2 seed next week is going to matter much.
Buck the Fuckeyes!
On behalf of all alumni (and Michigan fans generally) living in Ohio, for the love of God, Beat Ohio!!
Been in Indy since Thursday! I hope there are a TON of Michigan fans here today! GO BLUE and for the love of everything good in the world, BEAT OHIO!
Take it as a compliment that we are so hated!
we f Ohio!
So lots of cousins, aunts, and uncles who are Buckeyes. So I always enjoy a good Buckeye bashing session. Hope to see one again this afternoon!
Go all the way!
And end this 0-7 streak in the BTT!!
Just beat Ohio!!
We will be a one seed if we win these next two. Get er done.
Boss wants us to work until 5 today. Safe to say I really don't care what he thinks :-D. Prolly head to this cigar bar in Sterling Heights for the game. I took off early to go to Yost last night. May have to put 70 hours in next week to make up for it. If we beat OSU it will be worth it though
It might just be me, but I don't hate Matta like I hate Izzo Crean or Bo Ryan. Don't know what it is. I want to, but I can't for some reason.
I use to say the same thing about Izzo.
Win the game!
Ohio needs to beware the Ides of March
I want to beat ohio today and state tomorrow.
screw them both!
I apologize if this is listed somewhere else, but does anyone have a short list of the games we could keep an eye on today that will affect our seeding?
Honestly, there aren't many. Depending upon the source you choose to believe, most projections have Michigan on the 2-line, with Arizona and Florida being locks at #1 and Wichita State already crowned MVC champion. So, you're looking for teams on the 2 and 3 lines to lose. If the final #1 seed is available, the most likely team to win it would be the ACC tourney champ, if it's Virginia or Duke, or the B1G champ, if it's Michigan or Wisconsin. So, here's your list:
Pitt vs. Virginia 1 PM
Duke vs. NC State 3 PM
Wisconsin vs. Sparty 4:05 PM
I refuse to root for msu. We can settle it ourselves in the finals. The way I look at it is we are either going to be a 1 in the east or a 2 in the Midwest, with Wichita state as the 1. I'm fine with either outcome.
Oh, I won't cheer for Sparty. I may just cheer slightly more against Bo Ryan than against Tom Izzo tonight. Besides, Izzo's got his team healthy and won't have to play weird guys, so they should be able to beat Michigan by like 150 points or something. I think they'll set records. I mean, weird guys, ya know???
good prep for the tourney, and this is not Thad Motta's Dad's Ohio squad. I know KenPom is accurate over the long haul, but I am a bit surprised this is essentially pick 'em.
Aaron Craft recites an alarming amount of numbers in Pi...
Sorry for the dumb question, but I've only had to use the Watch ESPN and BigTen2Go apps before. Will the game be viewable using the CBS Sports app? Is there a different way to watch it (CBSSportsNetwork.com)? Neither one seems to be showing the earlier game. (At work for the day.) Thanks for any help.
Anyone know if CBS' iPad app will have the game? At in-laws in VA
Okay, figured out that it's on CBSSports.com, not CBSSportsNetwork.com, on the web. Still don't know about the apps, so I'll defer to others on that.
