    Great game. I can't really blame the refs for swallowing the whistle on the last play. Fact of the matter is, OSU lost the game because they didn't get Deshaun Thomas the damn ball during the overtime. I understand he wasn't having the greatest of games but I'd rather have him taking key shots down the stretch than Craft.

    I will say that this is one in a long line of conference games this season that shows the B1G is the class of college basketball. The conference tourney in Chicago will be something else.

    1) Craft's shotclock three should not have counted. (No OT)

    2) If you honestly think that the refs are going to call a foul on someone going 1 vs. 4 especially when you are a point guard with a weak shot needs to watch basketball more than once in their life.

    3) Refs were terrible all-around.

    Really thought the refs let them play for the most part. Big thing we should have be giving Thomas the ball, this is why you have a primary scorer.

    Ugh what a heart breaker. I envision LaQuinton Ross supplanting Sam Thompson at some point this season. We need people other than DeShaun Thomas on the floor that can hit shots.

    Great game, sad ending.

    I just don't know if we will ever win it all with Matta. He doesn't have it to me.

    I'd be shocked if we did. Bad game manager.

    I still want to know why he didn't call that timeout he had available. Guess he was pulling a Pat Shurmur and saving it for next game.

    Lol... do you see the "talent" on this team? The fact that we are playing so well, given what we have, is attributed to Matta. Literally one scorer and we are #10 in the country.

    Not anymore. By the end of the week we could be out of the rankings.

    This. They have been overrated all year. They just aren't that good of a team. If they are hitting shots they play defense well enough to beat any team in the country, but most of the time they just aren't hitting them.

    Worst team we've had since before the Oden/Conley team. We have 1 scorer (Thomas) and 1 defender (Craft) and that is it. Lol.

    Late in the game, they need to take the ball out of Craft's hands.

    Not sure you guys watch much college basketball.

    I am a big critic of the OSU team, but to think they aren't a legit top 10 team is just wrong.

    This team is building its way towards being a good tourney team. They're at least sweet 16 calibur and have the talent to make the final four.

    They were overrated a little bit to start the season

    But they have impressed me playing well In tough games. We don't have the most gifted offensively skilled guys , Doesn't mean we're horrible or not a top 10 team.

    If Matta finally lets Ross off the leash things will get really interesting. Shannon too , I believe he's a better fit with these current group of guys. He has to find a way to get him good minutes

    As a Michigan fan in Columbus I gotta say I respect you all as buckeye fans ... I deal with way too many dumbasses down here who called and texted to cry all damn day

    OSU matches up so well against UM and they are certainly a tough team but my biggest shock was DT not getting a touch in OT

    Otherwise this was a fun game to watch and am rooting foe y'all against IU

    GO BLUE!!!
