He ain't no damn joke!!
BuckNasty is all about The Buckeyes!!!
Dude can play defense. Just wish he could hit some 3 balls!!!
These boys are PLAYING THEIR ASSES OFF TONIGHT!!
These Buckeyes are energized tonight! I hope they get the win!!
Yes this is exciting. I played ball against Craft myself. I made a 3 in his eye
but went 1-8 shooting. lol
aaron craft = stupid basketball at the end
Craft was the best player on the court tonight though. He owned Burke most of the night.
creedbuck = stupid at the beginning, middle and end!
Craft had the hell knocked out of him on his last two drives and the refs didn't have the balls to blow the whistle.
except the continued hero ball at the end .. not passing the ball to Thomas, best scorer in the big ten in the entire OT
Hate to agree with South Florida but Craft can't have the ball for the win....dudes the best defender in the NCAA. But man, he can't finish.
Agreed, but that was true through out OT...why they didn't got to Thomas (who GRIII could not stop for anything) is beyond me. I think that was more Matta than Craft.
hero ball again by craft .. i don't give a crap what you post. i am right and i know it. on the steal also .. he plays great defense, but his offense isn't good. .. i don't know what to tell you .. on the steal from burke, he tried to hero ball and got the ball stolen away when we had a break .. on the drive tried hero ball and was blocked, on the last shot tried hero ball and shot was blocked.
Those are bonehead shots in the situation. I blame coaching though. Need to play for last shot and win in that situation. Refs had to swallow whistle on the last one after bailing us out of a Flagrant. Not trying to play Devils advocate, but they made the desicion not to decide the game, and that has to go both ways.
talking about coming out of the time out ? i blame matta if anything. looks like craft just ran the play and a good block by burke. I have no problem with him trying ti get a lay up at the end. should have went to the line.
I love Craft and don't agree with you're hero ball statement but on that layup where Burk caught up and stripped him he had an easy pass to the middle for a solid 2 but he doesn't dribble with his head up.
No one could finish when they're getting hacked like that. Hope we see them in the B10 tourney. We can beat them on a neutral court.
that's why you PASSSSS the ball to the other players when you are 5 foot 11 going into the paint against taller players ...
Just re-watched the ending play. Craft came up and had Thomas and Ross both open as 4 defenders came to cover the lay up.
shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ... don't tell the truth .. they will blame it on the gum chewer
i doubt he was thinking about that with less then 7 seconds left.
CREED, i know you aren't real smart or you act like it anyways. but when you come out of a timeout the coach typically has a play called. Craft had a pick and roll and shot a open jumper. IF that was the play called, how can you call him out playing hero ball?
He made a big mistake at the end. He had a TO and needed 3 to win. Why didn't he get the
TO and run a play to get Thomas the ball?
Other than that........dude played big time tonight!
Just wish he had taken the last TO and used what you had.
i still don't know why none of yall aren't mad at not getting Thomas a 3 after the timeout. smh..im done talking about bball. ITS SIGNING DAY! FOOTBALL SEASON !!
You can blame craft all you want but without him they get blown out tonight. And I actually think we're the better team and on a neutral floor we win. Michigan gets 14 3s AT HOME and still needs ot to win it. I agree with Vitale though that whistle should've been blown at the end his arms were clearly raked while taking a layup. I've played enough basketball to know that I would want a foul called if I took that lay up, craft will never say it publicly but I guarantee you he would say that getting both arms raked across prevented him from making the layup..and that's a foul.
Of course .... The gum chewer and hero ball couldnt figure it out
Because they dont understand bball ......
I agree. He was running up the court fast. Had around 2 seconds to make a decision and for him to to stop or to turn and hook a pass to a guy he didn't know located didn't make sense.
DZ....great observation on that play. He had Thomas coming down the lane for a possible dime. If you notice, more times than not when Craft enters the lane he is going all the way to the rim. He rarely draws and passes.....it's just another symptom of his offensive deficiencies.....a great point guard gets others involved. Also, when the shot clock is winding down he cannot create and take his man off the dribble. Great competitor and as you said on another thread an all-time buckeye but he is offensively challenged.
