I'm willing to bet most of the people cheering for Ohio State in this topic are neither from Columbus nor former students of OSU. Just saying.

No, but my grandfather, mom, dad, and older brother all graduated from there. If you live in Ohio, you spend your Saturdays during fall watching Ohio State play football. I have done that every year and will do it every year I'm alive, it's how I was raised. College athletics are no longer "you have to go there to root for them". Maybe it was like that when TV and radio didn't exist and going there was the only way you could follow a team, but now that college athletics is a multi-billion dollar business and seemingly every game is on TV, why do you have to go there to be a fan? I root for Ohio State because they represent the state I'm from and most of my family, I'm sure most Ohio State fans root for those reasons as well.

Such a bad way to go down. But at the end of the day, back to back elite 8 is a hell of a run, if we keep Thomas & Ross we could be here again next year. We have a few studs coming in, hopefully they can shoot. If we just had a dead nuts shooter, this team would be great.

Are the guys coming in really studs? They are 4* guys, but they aren't even as highly rated as Trey McDonald or Sam Thompson.

I think the success of next year's team will be more dependent on improvement of the players already there because I don't expect either of the freshmen to be immediate contributors.

Our inability to score finally caught up with us, in a really bad way.

Despite all that, we still had a shot at the end, somehow. A couple bone headed plays will tamper a 20 point comeback.

Oh well. I didn't expect this team to win another game after tonight. At least they went down swinging, even if it was for only 1/4th of the game.

Should be fun as hell next year.

Neither of these teams had/has much of a prayer against Duke/Louisville.

I don't really follow high school prospects at all. Someone want to break down the incoming OSU class for me? OSU really didn't have that go to scorer this year. I expect them to keep playing good D, just don't know if they can score. I think it says a lot when none of the guys are real standout NBA prospects.

I guess you misunderstand the phrase "March Madness" to begin with. Everyone has a prayer, one and done, is what makes this tourney fun to watch to begin with. In a 7 games series, WS wouldn't stand a chance against a much overly matched Duke or Louisville.

One game? Any team can be suckered punch. I wouldn't put my money on WS, but I wouldn't exactly put my house on either Lousiville or Duke either.

K. Still douchey to rub it in on a board full of Ohio fans. Go find RealShockersFans, though I'm not sure it'll be what you expect.

Sorry to be excited about it. I'm sure you wouldn't have been happy if Ohio State won. It isn't like I'm in here constantly trolling people. I made one statement. I didn't attack one person, I didn't call one person a name, and I never even said anything bad about your team. Are you guys sensitive much?

And no, its not like I've been some huge Wichita State fan my whole life, even though I own like 3 shirts and have contemplated going to school there a few times. I just think its freakin cool a team like Wichita State is doing this good and representing Kansas like this. Is alright if I get behind that? It isn't like Kansas has a whole lot going for it sports wise. Ku has crapped the bed the last few years, and I don't need to explain the Chiefs or Royals. We don't even have an NBA team. So yeah, I suppose I will stop being "douchey" and not post in here anymore if that makes you happy. But I apologize for saying yay wichita state.

Yeah, I would have celebrated. But I wouldn't have gone to RealShockersFans.com and posted, Haha OHIO STATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YES!". See the difference?

Just own it and move on.

Poorly coached game by Matta. Team didn't start playing till 10 minutes left in the second half. And to echo the previous poster, can anyone explain the thinking for taking the press off when it put you in the situation?

The fact that OSU made it to the Elite 8 with this roster should be a feather in Matta's cap.

Though, I guess I shouldn't be surprised that people will do nothing but bash him for this loss... (and this is coming from a non-OSU fan)

Except this isn't an Ohio State forum, so there is a pretty tangible difference.

That doesn't change the fact that this isn't an Ohio State forum, which means your analogy was stupid.

The whole point was not to troll a group of fans that supports the losing team. My analogy might not have been spot on, but who cares? You know what my point is and are playing a stupid semantics game just to be "that guy."

Fine, I wouldn't have gone to RealKansasFans.com and trolled their threads.

Well it doesn't feel like I'm trolling since I've been a member here since 2008. It just happened to turn out that a team close by is doing this well for once. It didn't really don on me that most people are OSU fans. The title of the thread is 2013 Mens NCAA Basketball Tournament, so I was more just cheering for Wichita and didn't realize everyone is a Buckeyes fan. I wasn't like deliberately trying to put your team down. So I suppose you are right on the way it came off, it wasn't really what I was goin for. I'm sorry. Make fun of KU having the most embarrasing collapse I've ever seen in my life if you want.
