    I know this looks half-assed, but I was going to post it earlier until my internet kept cutting out.

    Better than nothing I suppose. I'll try to make game threads for whenever we are playing ranked opponents.

    Thanks for this. I thought about making one with 0 effort because it had already started.

    I guess we don't need these threads :chuckles:

    Ohio State has looked "meh" and they are up. I'm liking what I'm seeing on the defensive end. I never understood why Amir Williams doesn't play more... he is a freak blocking shots and getting offensive rebounds.

    Needs to learn to dunk. That attempt at a putback was sad

    I'll definitely agree with that. He's still only a sophomore and got really not PT last year, so I'm looking forward to watching him develop.. if given the chance.

    Terrible offensively in the 2nd half. Terrible.

    WTF Craft... Deshaun Thomas' lack of defensive awareness is really getting exposed.

    Fat Madda has to go. Ohio State will win NOTHING under him, you hear me? NOTHING. Makes Pat Shurmur look like a fucking genius.

    Somehow I knew I would find a ridiculously stupid comment in here from you, and I was right...

    You're not going to win many games when your starting back court shoots 7-27. And honestly, the Buckeyes have been getting good looks all night -- if a few more of those shots would have fallen instead of rimming out they EASILY could have been up by 15-20 in that first half and had this game on ice.

    This is going to be a problem all year. Ohio State only has one offensive option in the starting lineup. Teams are just going to focus on taking DeShaun Thomas out of the game, and Thad Matta isn't going to adjust.

    Lol. God forbid Ohio State lose to a place where 96 other non-conference opponents have lost in a row.

    Bad offense all night and early foul trouble to Thomas was the difference.

    Would have liked to see Ross a bit more in the second half. He could have provided a great scoring punch. Other than that, I can't complain. They just went toe-to-toe with what most people think is the best team in the country on their home floor.

    You can write it off as bad offense, but you're going to be saying that a lot, because when your starting back court is Aaron Craft and Sam Thompson, you're going to struggle to score, especially from the outside.

    They're going to keep pretty much every game close because their defense is great, but they're going to be experiencing a lot of 2nd half struggles like tonight when teams key in on Thomas.

    No idea why Scott was handling the ball so much in the 2nd half, it fucked our offense.

    Nobody can shoot on this team minus Thomas.

    And our big men are shit. Plumless nearly dropped a 20/20 on us. Embarrassing.

    I'll kinda agree with Pyro on his thoughts about Matta. But he's not a terrible coach. He's the John Cooper of college basketball. He can come into a decent program and make them good but he'll never push them to the next level. He's too stubborn when it comes to adjustments and substitutions and such.

    Oh well. Duke didn't impress me at all though.

    Lol @ John Cooper reference. Probably the worst Ohio State coach ever. What a bum

    Thad is a hell of a coach and I'll be pissed if we let him go. This team just doesn't have that much talent to be honest. Outside of Craft and Thomas, you really don't have much.
