Ohio State/Wisconsin 1st Half

Tuesday, January 09, 2007

-They are finally done with the University of Florida lovefest that was the Florida-Arkansas game (we get it, they won a championship in basketball and football), with the Gators winning 79-72....and it's time to head off to Madsion for the OSU/Wisconsin tip.


- And of course we have Dickie V, along with Dan Shulman playing liontamer to Vitale.We've already had one shot of Dickie V sucking up to Greg Oden at the shoot around. I'm sure there is more to come. I WOULD PUT EVERYTHING IN CAPS THAT VITALE SAYS TO STRESS HOW LOUD HE IS SAYING IT, BUT I JUST GOT A NEW LAPTOP AND DON'T WANT TO BREAK THE CAPS LOCK ALREADY!!!!

- Just for fun, I'm going to keep track of everytime Vitale somehow finds a way to mention Duke in this game. He'll find a way. We'll call it the Dukie-V count. Leave comments if I miss any

- TJ said "It's going to be tough for Dickie V to do this game with Oden's balls in his mouth". I wouldn't be too concerned, except that I'm pretty sure Oden's balls are much bigger than JJ Redick's.

- Ohio State starts the game by missing 3 straight shots.... until Bulter just nailed one off the break. OSU's 3's will make or break them this game

- Appartnely, Ohio State only shoots 3 pointers, and as Shulman pointed out, all 6 shots have been 3s

- First Commerical break, still nothing form man child Greg Oden...

Wisconsin 7 Ohio State 6

-And we have our first Erin Andrews apperence, and she's showing us what Greg Oden's wrist band looks like. Dickie V continues to tell Erin, the Florida grad, that she needs to be celebrating the chmapionship

- As TJ pointed out, Wisconsin fans call themselves the "Grateful Red". I guess "Red Sea " was already in use.

- Back and forth game, with the Badgers up 12-11, still no touches for Greg Oden. It guess it goes agaisnt the OSU game plan of "let's just launch some 3s tonight"

- Cook is finally off the bench for the Buckeyes, despite the fact he it their leading scorer. Yeah can't really tell you why he's on the bench

- Wow, A Wisconsin player just tapped Oden and they called a foul....the star treatment... and of course they now called foul on Oden. Should not the all of the Badger big men are on the bench right now.

- Dickie V actually makes a good point, there is no patience on wither team...it's like both teams are playing hot potatoe. Still waiting for someone to make a run...


Wisconsin 12 Ohio State 11

- I swear to God someone better make a run soon, trading baskets is getting very boring

- Amazingly, the Dukie V count is still at 0. There is still time.

- Flowers drives to basket to give the Badgers a 16-11 lead, and Dickie V points out for the 4th time already how underarrted he and Kammeron Taylor are. This will happens approximitly 24 more times.

- And apparently it's now Baseball Tonight staring Dickie V.... just so you know, he thinks Andre Dawson should be in the Hall. Just so you know.

- Oden seems to be good at one thing, drawing fouls...which is good because he hans't done anything else. Speaking of doing nothing, where is Brian Butch?

-Ohio State has missed 11 straight shots... and Oden's now got 2 fouls. Not good

Wisconsin 18 Ohio State 13

- Well thats not good, Erin Andrews just pointed out that Ohio State playersaddmitted were effected by the Florida crowd....I'd love to see fall apart in a tight finish at the Kohl Center

- I swear, all the points in this game have come fomr the foul line....we need some more Erin Andrews

- Ohio State finally scores a field goal, thier first in 8:30 mintues, and somehow they are only down 3

- Flowers and Taylors have 16 of Wisconsin's points, I'l gald all the stars (Oden, Cook, Tucker, Butch) decided to show up

- Badger crowd not happy at a goal tending no call.... Lewis then takes it coast to coast to make it a 2 point game.

- Did Dickie just compare Michael Redd to Greg Oden?

- Tucker just airballed a free throw....I thought this was the Big Ten, not 6th grade CYO Basketball

Still no runs...

Wisconsin 26 Ohio State 21

-Everyone better be rooting for Tucker to be a star, or some kids will never get their Rec Center

- Ohio State is shooting 23% and still only trails by 5 , and where the hell is Erin Andrews....this game needs some excitment

- Tucker just misses two free throws, meaning some poor kids will never be getting their Rec Center

- Brian Butch, having a hard filling the shoes of past slow white Wisconsin centers...


- Dickie V just said the 3 point shot has revolutionalized college basketball.....yeah.....in like 1980....I think we are pretty used to 3s by now

- Tucker finally hits a driving lay-up to give the Badgers a 31-28 lead going into the half. I honestly have no clue how Ohio State is in this game despite hitting 20% of their shots

- Wow, Thad Matta is sweating like he just ran a marathon

Halftime

Wisconsin 31 Ohio State 28

The Badger fans call themselves "The Greatful Red"? Seriously?

OSU is aware you can shoot from INSIDE the 3-point line right?

Our first Erin Andrews sighting, and Vitale again has to slurp Urban Meyer and Florida....

That was a crap offensive foul call on Oden.

Jan 9, 2007, 9:24:00 PM  

Can we get a scientist or geneticist or somebody to explain how people like LeBron James and Greg Oden happen?

It might just be me, but I swear kids are developing much faster these days.

I imagine the Conley/Oden 6th grade squad ran a few teams out of the gym.

"Oden is a beautiful young guy!"- DV, let the fellating begin.

Jan 9, 2007, 9:34:00 PM  

I HATE when Dickie V calls Georgetown the HOY-ERS.

Jan 9, 2007, 9:38:00 PM  

This is torture. Oden, Conley and Cook's second choice was Wake Forest. Now we suck and Chris Paul's at NOOCH. Carry on...

Shouldn't it be an FCC violation to have Erin Andrews speak without appearing on camera?

Jan 9, 2007, 9:40:00 PM  

Yikes, someone take bj's belt and shoelaces away.

So, who does Dickie V love more, Jim Kaat or Oden?

OMDQ - it should be as severe a punishment as Janet Jackson's nipple slip a couple years back.

Hahahaha....my favorite line of the night so far. "We'll take you right up to the Spurs/Sixers game tonight."- Shulman

Ummm the Sixers played Detroit earlier tonight....the game's over....that game is tomorrow. Plus it's almost 10....what time did Danny think the game was starting?

Jan 9, 2007, 9:45:00 PM  

So, if Tucker doesn't make it big, there will be no rec center?

TJ said...
Jan 9, 2007, 9:46:00 PM  

Damn it...you cannot continue Erin voiceovers. SHOW HER.

TJ said...
Jan 9, 2007, 9:53:00 PM  

Again, only the Voice of Erin Andrews...

Does ESPN have an executive whose only job is to sit around the office and think of ways to mess up good things?

Jan 9, 2007, 9:54:00 PM  

Wow, did anyone else just catch Digger say "drop it like it's hot"?

TJ said...
Jan 9, 2007, 10:00:00 PM  

Yeah where the hell is Erin Andrews?

Hey OMDQ and STN, you guys want in on the Aggro Crag College Basketball Challenge?

There she is. I can go to sleep now.

mark - I don't remember what that is, but I'm in. I don't have to do anything weird, do I?

Jan 9, 2007, 10:16:00 PM  

What am I, chopped chicken liver? I want in on this pick 'em thing...anything to further distract me from my daily cubicle hell.

Thad Matta is now searching for the phantom timeout that left the fast break in a halt.

TJ, I got your email already

I love the color orange.

Jan 9, 2007, 10:33:00 PM  

Whoa....I just realized that I get the hockey plan (apparently for three). I don't know whether to use this power for good or evil.

Jan 9, 2007, 10:37:00 PM  

That would be for free...not three....basketball on the mind.

Jan 9, 2007, 10:39:00 PM  

"It's Great to steal money"- Dickie V, Umm what?!?!?!
