One Frame At A Time: Ohio State, Part Two Comment Count

If you missed it, Part One is essential reading/viewing before going any further. The "Frames Of The Game" and top ten gifs have been awarded, so this is the best of the rest, starting with the best still frame:

This probably won't be the last you hear of Rapture Guy.

[Hit THE JUMP for the rest of the gifs from the Ohio State game, including basically the opposite of Rapture Guy.]

I probably don't need to keep telling you this, but click the still frames to open each animated gif in a lightbox.

Maize Rager who helpfully wore a blue jersey does the most halfhearted Blues Brothers dance ever:

Trey Burke approached the three-point line and heard the voice of Brian Cook: "LONG TWOS ARE THE DEVIL'S WORK." Heeding the strange man's words, he pulled up and fired:

Nik Stauskas, looking entirely unimpressed with his thirty-footer as he walks in front of his own personalized flag:

If Aaron Craft can't stop Trey Burke's hesitation move, it's truly unstoppable:

Alternate angles of four of Hardaway's five second-half threes:

Yeah, I think he earned the right to do this:

By Mitch McGary standards, this is a very subdued celebration:

Another Denard/Kovacs gif, because I can't get enough of Kovacs's shirt and Denard's genuine excitement is currently powering my apartment:

The incompetence required to miss this call is damn near impressive:

McGary hedges like a boss, forces turnover, Burke gets the breakaway dunk:

Trey Burke (1) Crafts Craft, then (2) makes a cross-court one-handed pass look as easy as tying your shoes. This is also the three that set off the RAPTURE, and for that we are forever indebted:

This was quite a reversal of fortune:

"Big Dog" is obviously taken, so we're in a bit of a conundrum when it comes to McGary's nickname:

Flagrantly flagrant:


To the Maize Rage!

I leave you with this (NOTE: not a gif, so no need to click):

Leaders and Best.

I think the last GIF is my favorite, with Hardaway telling all the freshman to go to the Maize Rage. They're all walking away, you can see Mitch, Levert, Nik, and Spike all going the otherway before Hardaway comes in to give some words of wisdom.

One of my favorite parts of the game was the over enthusiastic sideline possession pointer fan at 1);29 in the second half.  

Could anyone gif that for me?


(I need to learn how to create on myself)

I did not see the game, so forgive me for asking, but did that desperation OSU 3-pointer which was clearly released after the shot clock hit zero: 1) go in? 2) count?
