So after 40 minutes of that maddening zone defense, dozens of questionable calls (both ways!) and the gritiest clutchiness from Lenzelle Smith, Jr. and the Buckeyes are on their way to the Final Four.
Basketball in general is an extremely stressful sport to be a fan of. Every single possession carries with it such pressure. Come tournament time, it becomes excrutiating. I really don’t know how these kids do it. But that was a really good game. Of course it makes it better that Ohio State won 77-70. (And if you aske me, beating Boeheim makes it that much better)
We haven’t covered the Buckeyes basketball team this year for a variety of reasons, but we’ve never stopped rooting for them. We’ve also still haven’t stopped waiting for Buford to have that game. But we know it’s coming.
So congratulations to the 2011-12 Ohio State Buckeyes. Good luck to them next week. We’ll be cheering (with one hand covereing our eyes the whole time).
As an Ohio State blogger, we have a steady stream of OSU-related email come accross our desks, promoting everything under the sun. Being the big fans we are, we try to spread the love when it’s something we enjoy or think it’s something that you, our loyal readers, would benefit from or enjoy.
One of the hardest things to decide on sharing is the music related stuff we get. A lot of the college athletic-based music out there is not very good. The hip-hop stuff is usually even worse.
That is definitely not the case with this track from Cal Scruby. Who is Cal?
Cal Scruby is an up and coming hip-hop artist and Junior engineering major at Ohio State University. He just made this video to support OSU in March Madness…
