Oh no, they're going to lose.  

Time to comment on the refs, and get angry with college basketball players that don't perform up to our expectations.

Watch a slew of fouls get called against OSU in the last 2 minutes so the free throw shooting disparity isnt so obvious at the end of the game.  The calls are SO one sided it isn't even close.

Having Horford could be huge when the bucks come to Crisler is a few weeks. We need another body inside to rebound and take fouls. We've shown some resolve today on the road, I really do like our chances at home assuming Novak actually scores some points.

At least here is some perspective. Ohio has only had none game within 10 points at home this year a 7 point win against Florida. With the bad three point shooting and lack of foul shots we're still giving Ohio their best or second best game of the year on their home floor.

Holy hell people, relax. We are losing to a top 5 team. Did you really expect anything else? We are still having a decent season and we are (probably) going to make the tournament. Would you rather go back to the days of sucking hard and maybe making it to the NIT?

1.  They are a top 3-4 team for a reason.

2.  Been forever since they've lost in the Nut  House.

3.  We've reeled them back in a couple of times.

4.  We have talent, but not enough depth.

5.  Our best players will continue to get better; seniors will get replaced by better hoopsters and more depth.

Everyone said this was a ten-point game, and they were right.

this was a game we could have had. osu shot horribly today - give credit to the D.  but our rebounding was horrible and we missed way too many wide open shots.
