Can we call them the other Ohio?
Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
Can we call them the other Ohio?
Ohio (YTO) and Ohio (NTO)
I think the Bobcats are "THE" Ohio University.
by ohio's D, but does Duke look like they can score like we can? I'm gonna go ahead and say no on that one.
gets to keep Maryland.
If I could vote this up or give you a 5 I would. In that case go Penn State, OSU and Illinois. Make sure we don't get Maryland. Eliminate change and keep the Big Ten the same!
Greedy, hungry Delany. Shame on you!
Sorry Double post!
Can the loser be forced to take Rutgers as well?
while the loser get to keep Maryland! Fair trade.
Kirk Herbie looks like he married his sister, hmm, they chew gum so similarly
This Seth Greenberh looks like a slightly slimmed down Al Borges
OSU looks good, but Duke looks tired. They are lucky to be down only 8.
we beat lower case ohio in C'Bus?
Bobcats are upper case Ohio, remember that whole Brian meme before the NCAA's?
if you say so, I like lower case better for some reason
I wouldn't mind a B1G/ACC win and a top 3 (no order) of Michigan, Indiana, and Matta's team.
Plumlee threw that down with authority. Nasty!
I'm begging for them to come back ands win... I hate Ohio more then I like the Big Ten
Well Duke seems to be waking up
Couldn't believe Jay Bilas was saying Duke was tired. They were just getting outplayed. Now they are playing better, I guess they aren't tired anymore?
I enjoyed that. Typical bilas logic...teams become less tired as the game progresses.
DeShaun Thomas should be earning an NBA paycheck instead of an ohio state paycheck. He's a mismatch against anyone.
Not this game, but wow Illinois can't make a free throw!
Won't matter looks like Big Ten will take at least six games though this could very well end in a tie.
Guess Maryland will belong to both the Big Ten and ACC.
It's better of UM to have the Big Ten teams win... so ohio win is good for us. With that said, F ohio. Then again, F Duke. I just hate everything about this game. I can't watch.
Agree. A big FU to both teams, coaches.
By the way, why is Aaron Craft a preseason B1G 1st-teamer? He's an awful shot. Airballs, bricks, it's like he's inventing new ways to miss
Duke must not be tired anymore, huh?
Also, Louisville woulda been a better get for the B1G cause that gives us more SEC exposure for recruiting and people are moving to the south a lot
Has anyone ever cared about a record for dunks?
Thank got he went to OSU and we got Burke. He doesn't seem to be getting better as a player. I liked him a lot in the past he's single-handedly losing this game for OSU with shitty offense.
Is single handedly blowing this game right now with his missed shots and free throws.
similar post at same time
are you in my house?
Musberger just said Gene Smith is one of the best ADs in the country as they showed him on tv. My head hurts.
Musberger wins prize for stupidest comment of the year. Again.
There was a Brent Musberger Award for the most insanely stupid shit said in sports broadcasting, of the four annual nominees, Brent would take three spots himself and Matt Millen one.
Aaron Craft is such a good leader.
Leaders don't miss two free throws and air ball a floater in the paint.
ONE! what a joke. craft lost this game.
I can't wait to play Dukie in the tournament Final Four (while Ohio is home watching like their football team).
w00t! Go Duke, beat Ohio!!
This run over the past couple minutes has been awesome!!
Go Devils Go!!!
I opened this thread after the game just to look for your post.
This tie is all on Michigan State and Wisconsin. No one, not even I expected OSU to win against Duke and they played a good game minus Craft ill performance but MSU losing to Miami and Virginia winning in the Kohl Center blows my mind. The B1G is still the cream of the crop!
Ok Michigan fans, salivate in Ohio State defeat for the night...
Agree with this.
you seem like a good guy, tough loss for you guys, played well but Craft killed you there, how concerned are you about his lack of Offense at times and then missing FT's, surprising, that
Also, good call on Sparty & Wiscy, them fools blew it for the B1G, MSU in particular just might be starting to wane under Izzo, they don't play as solid as they used to.
Aaron plays very solid defense any one can admit that but his offensive numbers are not where they need to be. With most of our offense leaving (Buford and Sully) we need him to step up and at least get 12-15 a night and dish the ball well too. Aaron also needs to learn how to take well advised shot and exercise good judgement. Part of his play last year was the reason we lost in the final four to Kansas. I'm just hoping games like this will make him better once Big Ten play starts.
Sidenote: Ohio State needs to find some more scores besides Thomas and Aaron. They can't do it alone. Bummer game but you live and learn.
Thomas should have been taking all the shots down the stretch. Ohio played a very good game, especially on defense, but left the Lumberjack open too many times in the second half.
Any athlete like cook exposes him for what he truly is.
Should probably go Duke, Indiana, UM. Duke's resume is better than IU's. IU's is maybe better than UM's.
IU beat the crap outta UNC who got plastered by unranked Butler.
UM murder fisted KSU, Pitt, and NC St, so maybe there's an argument for Duke, UM, IU.
Of course bball polls don't mean shit compared to fball polls so in the long run none of it really matters that much.
Sorry for the format. Posting from Galaxy III on the app.
We murder fisted Pitt and NC State? We won both games, but only by 5 and 7 points respectively, Duke probably should be #1 and IU a very close #2 with us at #3.
