suck it Craft
landing spot. will be interesting to see how he does.
Nothing wrong with that, not one damn thing!
Losing Thomas really hurt this team but what surprises me is nobody has stepped up as a leader. Always seems like noone wants to take the shot. Either way Fuck OHIO!
Apparently the best player in B1g history. OSU was really good last year. Same team without him, not so much.
That's the team's biggest problem!
22-7 with all 7 losses coming in the B1G. Bazinga.
LOL Bazinga, indeed.
Nice OOC schedule, Matta.
What sick twisted bastard downvoted this?
This is beautiful proof of Matta going cupcake city to artificially inflate his suckeyes in the pre-conference season.
There are certain people out there, who, on certain felicitous occasions, refer to that team from down South in that manner. I am one of those people.
If that bothers you, well, I don't know what to tell you. In my opinion, those free tattoo getting, steroid taking, under the table payments receiving, sanctimonious assbag of a coach having, compulsively self-reporting, TP buying, Mo C enabling cretins deserve mostly any ill term applied to them.
I don't know if their basketball program is dirty, but I always assumed it was. Too many people around Matta, even if it isn't Matta, to think someone isn't paying someone something. But I could be wrong. I still hate them.
You just sound like an RCMB poster when you say. We used to be above the name calling on this board, but, apparently, the MLive takeover is complete.
To each their own. I don't think the mlive posters know how to properly use felicitous in a sentence, but that's just me. I'm not interested in being above anything when it comes to those assholes. They are the worst of the worst. But meanwhile, you really needed to interrupt a posbang for this?
goes up to block a shot and got a Penn State knee to the onions. Even better on replay.
Ouch. That was the only ounce of sympathy they got out of my cold black heart all night.
OSU player also got assessed a foul for his efforts
Lenzelle Smith CLANKED two three point chances for the win. It was glorious!
I'm here for the posbang..
Just wow! My Bucky buddies will be quite at work tomorrow and it should be a great weekend (except for the foot of snow were getting)...
Let's just hope that a late season loss at Penn State doesn't lead them to the same result to which it led us last year...I will enjoy it nonetheless tonight.
Yeah and they have Craft. Not Trey Burke.
What is "a thing Buckeyes actually believed in 2012?"
Dude, we were the #1-ranked offensive team in the country last year. Ohio this year, uh, not so much.
They can't score if the other team scores more than 70 I don't see them winning especially in the tourney
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA LMAO
Amadeo Della Valle
"...Just one drag, man...just one drag..."
I couldn't even quite find the photo I was looking for. Holy crap that is one ugly dude, lol.
I don't care what cheesy looking tart he's hitting, just because she's never met anyone from Italia.
I dislike Ohio very much.
or was it a MSU/OSU race? Either way, how is that working out this year???
Amir Williams put up a whopping 2 points and grabbed 0 rebounds tonight.
I believe he laughed at the idea of going to Michigan.
Yes, Amir, excellent choice. Because, you know, Matta will have you on the four year still look like shit plan in a jiffy.
They were a 5/6 seed going into this. Losing to Penn State drops them to about a 7. If they lose at Indiana and home to Staee, which I think they will, they could end up as low as a 10, maybe 11 if they don't get a BTT win.
What a gritty loss.
two points and zero boards.
And four eeyore like fouls. I gave him an extra one down below - my mistake - but he gets an extra one because I hate them all that much.
Enjoy it now. Their incoming freshmen class is stellar. Remember, they beat us out for Tate AND Bates-Diop.
Still not afraid of them next year.
Boo this man.
Thad Matta doesn't develop shit.
They better want to work, because I look out on that court and see some soft ass mofos.
They are physically WEAK.
Those kids look like they go there to smoke weed and eat Mickey D's.
Guess what? Michigan gets them in a single play next year like this year......but at Crisler Center.
Yeah, I'm not afraid.
Recruiting rankings mean next to nothing for Michigan basketball. Burke, THJ, Caris, Spike, Jordan Morgan, Horford: all 3 stars or less, and all of them play better than half the dim-witted 4 stars that Matta rolls out. I'll get worried about other schools recruiting classes when Beilein stops developing everyone like he's freakin King Midas
Wow that really sounds like something another school in the B1G says about recruiting.
When you have elite coaches, the value of star rankings shrinks. I would argue Dantonio/Narduzzi and Beilein are some of the best developmental coaches in the country. They've proved that they scout and/or develop unlike all but a small handful of other coaches in their respective professions
Ah, have you checked out the Mich lineup next year, even w/o Nik? Ooooh, we are so scared. I need my Fuck Ohio blankey.
just a football school
Fuck OSU and fuck that Della Valle kid.
I have an irrational hatred for him, although of course he's a Buckeye and he was a pissy bitch when we stopped recruiting him because we lucked into Caris MF Levert.
That kid is either going to hoist a spot up three or do nothing. All that kid does is run around the perimeter. If he doesn't have a spot up three, all that kid is going to do is pass. And he's a Buckeye, so fuck him and fuck all the rest of those clowns.
Amir DQing was LOL good, too. (whoops, I gave Amir an extra foul - he looked dopey enough to foul out tonight).
And Thad Matta's red face gets a FY, too.
Thad Matta drinks a handle of Kentucky Tavern bourbon before each game. That's why he looks like that. What's Craft's excuse?
Haha they are not good at making basketball shots.
They're actually quite terrible at it.
Ohio just lost. And I just got my 100 points! Whoop!
I'll laugh at other teams losing once Michigan clinches the outright title. Yesterday was too close for comfort for me to mock anyone quite yet.
The final line for Aaron Craft was 10 points, 3 rebounds and 4 assists, but for points anyway, that was actually the second best individual performance from the Ohio State squad tonight. LaQuinton Ross' 19 points was the only performance that was more prolific. Not to worry, of course, as I am sure Dan Dakich still considers Craft one of the most brilliant players of this generation.
IF Ross doesn't score 25+ OSU struggles to beat anybody
Those were the grittiest of McGrittiest 10 points, 3 rebounds and 4 assists maybe I've ever seen!
Including a fairly costly one at end of game. A gritty turnover though - tripping over own feet after cross over and kicking ball out of bounds.
Love me some OSU schadenfreude!
Buck the Fuckeyes! I love how much I hate them
So after all the no M thing they forgot they actually do need some "O"...
WAIT THEY ACTUALLY LOST?
I love me some Shaq. Such a fun what a fun character he was. Who in the NBA is most like this guy right now character wise?
No one. :(
NBA used to be so fun because of the characters. Now everyone is boring.
You really comparing these guys to the late 90s, early 2000s NBA players?
No, I'm just refuting the "now, everyone is boring" argument.
I actually find, apart from Shaq, that late 1990s, early 2000s moment the historical low point of the league in terms of being interesting, both on and off the court.
We only play the 4 worst B1G teams once this year: Illinois, PSU, NW and OSU.
When we win the conference crown outright there will be nothing cheap about it.
Beilein is THE B1G COACH of the year!
I will definitely be using this stat in future arguments with my sparty friends. Thanks in advance.
Except OSU is not in the bottom 4 (tied for 5th) Replace with Purdue
Now tied for 4th with Iowa loss.
Loved this. And then loved seeing John Callipari get swept by Arkansas.
I love seeing OSU lose but we really need them to beat Sparty next week to help our chances at an outright conference title...provided we take care of business ourselves. I don't see Iowa winning at Breslin so we have to, once again, root for OSU against MSU. And I'm starting to lose faith in their chances after seeing how the Bucks have played recently.
Better chance of Iowa winning at Breslin than hanging your hat on the Buckeyes. Home court hasn't been as big of an advantage this year.
Provided that we take care of business ourselves, we don't need outside help.
The best part of living in Ohio is when Ohio loses at sports. Soooooooooooooo many long faces.
All the chicks look like Julia Roberts?
So will they finally get the phuck out of the top 25?
I mean, really, do they have to pull down their pants and take a team crap at midcourt to get booted out of the rankings?
There's a reason they have 7 losses in Big Ten play. Not so easy when you can't schedule cupcakes, Matta, you frontrunning son of a bitch.
are offended by the court rush because they feel like they're not even worthy of it. Their self-deprecation feeds my soul.
Well Utah Valley might've just ruined it for everyone so OSU won't have to worry about it anymore.
I'd almost like to drink a few in celebration and just call out of work tomorrow. Well that would be my excuse at least.
There is dancing in my home tonight.
Tonight we dance the dance of phuck Ohio State
...well, that's usually stupid. But this time? It was awesome.
Suck it, Matta. Suck it hard.
Rather they'd won so they were on a roll when Sparty comes to town...we may need the assistance.
I made sure to stop and take a dump and empty my car of trash!
How great is that Kentucky loses and the SEC continues to look crappier and crappier? Answer: so great.
And Saint Louis loses to Duquesne. Things are going well tonight.
How does the SEC look worse? They were considered a joke last year And frankly have been considered a joke for much of this season. If not for Florida saving them every year, they would be a complete and utter disaster.
At least they generally have 2-3 teams that are considered nationally relevant. This year even their #2 (Kentucky) is looking like a Sweet 16 team or worse.
And Florida would have multiple Big Ten losses if they didn't play in a crappy conference. If they can say that for football then I can say it for basketball.
How about cold pizza on a golf cart, a la Urban Meyer?
My heart grows 3 sizes every time I see Craft exasperated after getting called for a foul.
You should probably get that checked out:
Just read that this Penn St loss is EXACTLY one year to the day of Della Valle's infamous "#YOUOFF" tweet.
And now they're 0-2 vs Penn St this season.
That kid did some excellent ineffectual running around the perimeter tonight.
CARIS > you
We actually stopped recruiting Amedeo once we got Spike. Oh wait....
SPIKE also > you.
It appears you are correct and I was remembering this wrong.
Agreed, Spike > him.
Where did you read this? I would like to read about this.
ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!!!!!
Buck the Fuckeyes
If OSU just had Scoonie Penn, they'd have won
Craft shit himself in his 3rd grade gym class. He was commando crawling on the floor scooters. It was a mess. From that moment foward the kids in his school called sharting, "Craft-ass". Don't have Craft-ass.
Screw Thad Matta and his awful mushroom tip nose!!
Ill buy that for a dollar !!!
Boom goes the dynamite!!!
OH MY GOD. Ebaumsworld. Taking me back!
Good. I hope they lose out and somehow miss the tournament. I hope any non-injury calamity that can befall that team over the next couple of weeks does end up happening.
You are hoping for them to beat State
Out with you and your logic.
Ranked teams went 1-5 tonight.
#10 St. Louis, #17 Kentucky, #20 Iowa, #21 Memphis, and #22 Ohio State all lost to unranked opponents. Only #7 Louisville survived the night.
BANG! BANG! BANG!
hasn't lived up to the billing it had when conference play started. Also, I feel like this gets said pretty much every year, but the NCAA tournament field really is wide open this year. Anybody willing to say that a team is even an Elite8 lock? Going to be hard picking brackets this year.
Anything can happen but Wichita St seems pretty likely.
If this were SEC football, then the narrative would be how competitive it is.
Gotta chime in here... . the sweetest part of it all ?
Both Trey Burke and now Caris Levert, were right under their noses, in Columbus..... gotta love it. wow
NEVER TOO LATE FOR A QUALITY BANG!
well done PSU. Everyone knew they were weak as hell, that OOC schedule was just a smoke screen of their crapiness.
