If we could make free throws and we would be in the lead right now.
Ohio vs. Michigan open thread, 1:53 tip-off
FT misses are going to kill us
Choking at the line.
ARGH! Make. Free. Throws.
You'd think after 5 years Jordan could he a free throw
Free throws are valuable
Need a few stops. Probably not going to get them
foul away, especially when we don't hit FT's
Poor damn free throws
I don't want to be in the Indy regional.
Choke choke choke
Is that not what's happening here?
Garbage. Hot garbage.
1st round exit. This team is gutless
You are an idiot
Life must suck for people like you.
People said this last year too
That shot was so bad it gave them a favorable offensive rebound
so Ohio's gonna get tired here right?
We pretty much suck in the BTT.
NEVER did I think we could lose this game at the FT line. Never. But that's the deal. Not OSU D, not turnoves. Hard to watch.
All of you doubters can suck my white dick
Toughness. Poise. Execution. Desire. Let's have it now boys
Perseverance. Effort. Necessity. Innovation. Simplicity. We got this
Why do we choke so much? Youth? Coaching?
Been exceptional at closing out games
Choked away 15 point leads two days in a row my friend
Why do posters freak out about a single game?
Will somebody show this asshole the door?
This is OSU's third game in three days, so I guess they should run out of gas right... about.... now
Grab a board, OSU keeps getting easy 2s after woefully missed 3s.
Play some DEFENSE!!!!
if we stay with it
remember how to find our *fight*
& spit it
No free throws, rebounding, or defense. We live and die by the 3. zero adjustments. Unacceptable guys
I don't like you
Negging ain't free
i gotta ask.. why are there so many posts in this thread telling other posters to suck their dicks?
Especially when you know damn well that if they were actually face to face they wouldn't have the guts to even take it out.
Try me. I hate negative nannies.
Trolls like Jobu bring that out in people
Sometimes a need just has to be met.
no goal tending there? sweet. thanks.
WHY MUST EVERY GAME END LIKE THIS
Be prayin', not whailing
Double bonus from here on out.
Take the lead here and don't relinquish it. MAKE YOUR FTS!
-- from WAAAY behind --
we can do it again
We know how to do clutch.
Let's finish this!
good strategy for ohio to foul. their FT defense has been lock-down all game.
Missed free throws, terrible inbounding and just dumb basketball. Morgan sitting under the basket with a 5'11 guard on him and no thought to try and post up. Instead dribble around and throw a pass at GR3s ankles. At least we get an extra day off before the real tourney starts.
borrow from the football team and practice layups
through a dong forest?
We'll have tournament games like this. It benefits us.
If we don't attack every time we're crazy.
GR3, LeVert and Stauskas need to attack, Attack, ATTACK!
luckily they should be in the double bonus from here on out
There's just nothing left to say about this defense.
When they aren't totally blowing rotations and forgoing closeouts, they're getting blown by like traffic cones.
We may always have this huge offense/defense gap with Beilein.
Well at least Sam Thompson has 4 fouls now too
Its going to come down to getting stops
To make free throws!'n
Our Defense is bad.
Is it bad that I hope we make just 1 of 2 every time we shoot FTs?
Inadvertent my ass.
Craft jumps into Morgan's body and gets free throws...
Poor Damn Morgan
Crafty play. Lol
Craft elbowing and shit like he does
illegal not crafty
Good job Craft
Underneath, up and in!
call puts Craft at the line
and it was a good one
What a fucking clutch shot
Wow. CBS announcers think OSU cheating is admirable.
Stauskas - the finger roll!
HOW IST HAT A TRAVEL
HE WAS THROWN DOWN
THE FUCK REF
Retarded refs.. Retarded!
TRAVEL? How about a fucking foul!
If Morgan fouled Craft, that's a foul on OSU on LeVert
How the fcuk did that get called on the travel?
wtf travel. Refs pls.
Still great effort Caris
Will someone with any sense of legitimate officiating please explain how a travel was not called on Ross? I don't understand how that was missed? I am being half way serious. I thought that by the third step the ball had to be out of your hands. Am I wrong?
Holy shit?! Travel?
Craft's shot is so ugly
Travel? FUCK YOU REFS.
Now they are playing like they are serious about this.
Ahhhh needed that Robinson mid.
2 more stops boys!
Craft should be fouled out
How did that happen? Up 3 under a minute to go
I have to pee really bad but I'm not going to do it for fear of jinxing us
Thank you for the dedication.
box out and hit free throws
Nik...that was sick.
Stop them here and we're likely going to win, so long as we hit the free throws.
Huge miss there. Great look though.
If OSU loses it's mostly Craft's fault. That should make a few people here smile.
We were out of position like a mother.
we got this.
And hit our free throws we're good
OSU wanted Craft over Burke?
Ccha refs calling the Bball game.
Why do you guys want Craft out? He's giving us the game!
Looked like Robinson couldn't decide whether to put it up or drive the lane, so put up the short jumper with too much momentum.
Craft won't foul out. Not that it mattered with clown-face on the bench
Dang do I wish GRIII had passed that back out.
What a shit call.
OSU cheerleaders looking....healthy.
This shit is killing us
another ohio call
that was horrible.
But a smart play by OSU.
But still, horrible bail out call.
The ref under the basket was just anticipating blowing his whistle. He had his whistle in his mouth and hand in the air before the dude even shot.
Morgan fouls out with 3 fouls on the day
Are you kidding with that foul call???
That explains a lot.
Like Morgan fouling out.
hope the team can will it out and we see you tomorrow
God I hate plays where the offensive guy has less than nothing and gets bailed out by a whistle. Dude had his back to the basket and just threw up a complete crap attempt there.
That explains a lot.
Like Morgan fouling out.
Ball don't lie
I have an idea. Let's put together a kick starter to pay off the b1g refs. I am sure we can outbid the Ohio AD if we pool our money together.
They've got a ton of money themselves, and sports are all they care about so that's a tough one.
Why is Levert in bounding again???????
Don't fuck up the inbound PLEASE
Osu grabs like crazy on inbounds. That is why their inbounds defense is so good.
I guess a timeout is better than a turnover, but good god... how can they struggle so much to inbound the ball.
We are the worst inbounding team in the country
We can get the ball inbounds
Of Caris Lavert been in bounder. I would much rather see Spike in that situation.
That don't see the press coming.
Jeff Meyer is responsible for inbounds plays.
I think I'm going to buy him a book on basic basketball sets and ship it to him. This isn't that hard.
Keep that clock running. Don't listen to those dirty buckeyes.
I'm shitting my pants.
WIN THE GAME!
It's going in
Ahhh, but great rebound LeVert
The most difficult thing we've done all day in inbound the ball.
They bleEED THREE DAGGER REBOUND YES
WIN THE GAME!
Well that went perfectly. Hallelujah!
Wow huge by Caris
I thought he was gutless
What a man rebound by Caris!
Dumb offense/play. Great rebound Caris
Stauskas is a killer
Let him #winthegame
I can't quite describe how I know, but you just know when Stauskas intends to shoot the 3. I knew it from the second he slowed the play down
Cuz at the end of the day- he is a shooter. Most comfortable going to a pull up shot from out there. Of course he's taking that as the final shot. They are also going to give him a little extra room so he doesn't break them down all the way to the hole
OREB of the Year goes to....Caris LeVert!
Nik F'N Stauskas
With a great rebound
Thank you Caris.
Great rebound by Caris but we did not need a 3 Nik
Thought that shot was good from Nik
Can't handle this..
Let Spike do his thang
WIN THE GAME!
SPIKE SPIKE SPIKE SPIKE SPIKE SPIKE SPIKE SPIKE !!!!!!
I'm shitting my pants.
Play of the day by LeVert. Outhustled everyone to the spot while they were all watching the ball.
2 huge rebounds in 2 games for Caris
this tournament doesn't matter isn't paying attention
If it was us then horrible...we need a TO for a potential inbounds.
BEST ENDING EVAR!!!!!!!!
Win the game!
Craft lost the ball. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
CRAFT WITH THE TOMMY REES IMPRESSION
Perfect ending for Craft!
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA CRAFT!!! Perfect ending.
SUCK IT BUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lol wtf was that Craft?!
more gif material from rosy cheeks
hahahahahaha oh man.... Even I almost feel bad for Craft there.
And the hammer dunk on the end.
Bitch on haters.
Another Craft .gif . . . commin' up!
Couldnt of happened to a better person suck it craft
Love the EFF YOU OHIO dunk!
Now to clean this shit out of my pants.
Craft vs Michigan = gif paradise
Nik with the dunk!
Craft strikes out loool
didn't like the dunk at the end, but i like the result :)
Gritty TO by Craft there!
Aaron Craft: The .GIF that keeps on giving!
Poor guy. But not really.
Craft got wrecked so hard there, and he knows it.
Aaron Craft appreciation thread?!
We want tobeat their butts again! Then meet them in the NCAA finals for a fourth win this season!
That's like my nightmare championship game. God no
for all it's flaws,
You closed it out!
and changed some entrenched fuckin' patterns...
Damn I love this team.
and another great craft gif for the last time we'll ever have to see him.
'turnover tommy rees' Craft
we basically had identical shooting percentage regardless of shot type.
2pt - 53.2%
3pt - 52.2%
FT - 52.6%
Craft, enjoy your career in the CBA . . . Crimean Basketball Association.
Heading out to dinner w my wife. Enjoy the night. See you tomorrow.. any chance of a Live Blog?? haha
Aaron Craft's last game vs. Michigan ends in epic fail. Fate, karma, kismet all come home to roost. The poster child for the program ends up being the subject line of a thousand posts. Life is beautiful. Well, except in the Craft household. Well, that and in Bruce Pearl's living room, too.
Craft must've been trying to draw a foul there, no? How else could that have looked so ugly?
Guys played sloppy and Blue still won. Pummeling the rivals this year.
I hope someone makes a gif of the Dakich/McGary handshake thing!
There's nothing I depise more than a NCAA mouthpiece droning talking points about the selection process.
Flaws don't matter if you win. I'm not sure will be able to best MSU or Wisconsin with our (so far) lackadaisical play in the tournament.
can we still get to 1000 posts?
