Week 9 Prop Bets

first_imgvagas 2In honor of the visiting opponent this weekend, I’ll be using the term “higher” rather than “greater” on this week’s prop bets. 1) OSU -8.5 vs TCUI’ve noticed that Vegas tends to take advantage of people’s short-term memories. Last weekend TCU lost at home to Tech and OSU took care of Iowa State in Stillwater. Well the weekend before, OSU looked sloppy (So I heard. I was at a wedding) against the worst team in the conference and TCU won big on the road against a team with an explosive offense and poor defense (Baylor). No matter what I say, 85% of you are still going to take the Cowboys here. 2) Over/Under number of interceptions for Brown & Gilbert: 0.08Why 0.08? Because that’s what Casey Pachall blew on his breathalyzer when he was stopped by police on Thursday, October 4th.3) Which will be higher: The number of OSU players that record at least one reception or the number of rushing attempts by OSU running backs not named Joseph Randle?I remember when we found out Michael Harrison wouldn’t see the playing field this season. “Oh, that’s alright. We’re crazy deep at WR.” Tracy Moore, Isaiah Anderson and CJ Curry (I feel like I missed someone) disagree. 4) Over/Under on how many Big 12 Underdogs cover the spread this weekend: 1.5 (Kansas +21 vs Texas; Baylor +2.5 at Iowa State; TCU +8.5 at OSU, Texas Tech +7.5 at Kansas State)Kansas has covered both Big 12 games in Lawrence (TCU & OSU) and I wouldn’t be surprised if the Horns can’t get fired up for an 11am game at Kansas. Baylor and Iowa State started off as a pick em, but apparently the public isn’t buying into the WINLESS IN BIG 12 CONFERENCE PLAY Baylor Bears. Kansas State was criticized for winning close games in 2011, but 2012 is a different story. No other team in the nation has a better duo of games on their resume than Kansas State.5) Which will be higher: The margin of victory for OU over Notre Dame or the margin of victory for OSU over TCU?Going by the lines, you would pick OU. How much do you all believe in your Cowboys? 6) Which will be higher: Total passing TDs in OSU vs TCU, or total rushing TDs in OU vs Notre DameThis is a completely random matchup without any consideration of how lopsided it might be. 7) Which Who will be higher: Casey Pachall tomorrow night or Honey Badger when he’s out of jail?Make your selections here!See you all in Stillwater tomorrow!If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.

Bill Simmons Tried To Troll Oregon, Failed Spectacularly

first_imgBill Simmons tries to troll Oregon with tweet.oregon bill simmons failed trollFormer ESPNer Bill Simmons – now the owner and operator of The Ringer – attended college at Holy Cross, which landed a 16-seed in this year’s NCAA Tournament. Friday, the Crusaders take on 1-seed Oregon for the right to play in the round of 32. As such, Simmons attempted to poke fun at the Ducks’ program – but somehow failed miserably in the process.Simmons took to Twitter this morning, posting a photo of the 1947 Holy Cross squad that won the national title, asking Oregon fans to show him a photo of their national championship team. Clearly, he didn’t they they’ve ever had one. Except they do – Oregon won the first NCAA Tournament, back in 1939. Simmons quickly admitted defeat.Where is Oregon’s NCAA championship team photo? pic.twitter.com/BP12ahS4kE— Bill Simmons (@BillSimmons) March 18, 2016@BillSimmons Here it is. See you at 4:27 PST.

Game On!! pic.twitter.com/wYfchlL2Tt— Bill Simmons (@BillSimmons) March 18, 2016The two programs may have the same number of national championship teams, but we don’t think tonight’s game will be anywhere close to even. Simmons probably should have done some quick research before firing off his tweet.last_img read more

Ohio State womens basketball set to take on Illinois as season draws

With just two games left on its slate of regular season games, the Ohio State women’s basketball team is back on the hardwood to face Illinois Thursday in Champaign, Ill. After taking down Michigan State, 67-60, at home Monday night, the Buckeyes might be looking to salvage what’s been an otherwise disappointing season. “We played great Monday night and the win was important,” said OSU coach Jim Foster. “The team just needs to keep getting better and Illinois will be a tough test.” The Buckeyes (15-12, 5-9 Big Ten) have struggled in conference play this year. But the victory against the Spartans has OSU motivated heading into its contest with the Fighting Illini. “Winning games, especially the other night, helps a lot in terms of confidence,” said senior guard Amber Stokes. “This season has been somewhat of a struggle, but winning our next two games would be huge and we’d have some momentum going into the Big Ten Tournament.” Illinois (16-10, 9-5 Big Ten) head into the game coming off of a 13-point win against Indiana on Feb. 23. The game against OSU is Illinois’ final home game of the season and, as such, it’s Senior Night for the likes of senior forward Karisma Penn, who averages 19.1 points and 9.8 rebounds per game. In a 79-73 win against OSU on Jan. 6 at the Schottenstein Center, Penn scored 34 points and grabbed 12 rebounds. “That was really a bizarre game,” Foster said. “We sent them to the foul line over 30 times and we dealt with some injuries. It was very strange, but since then, I think we’ve gotten a lot better.” In that contest against the Illini, Stokes suffered a sprained MCL in the first half that sidelined her for four additional games. Stokes, who returned to action in a 71-56 loss to Penn State on Jan. 27, is relishing her time back on the court. “It was a tough loss, and spraining my MCL in the first half, then not returning, was terrible,” said Stokes. “I really want this win, it would be huge.” Senior guard Tayler Hill, who is averaging 21.2 points a game, has been a consistent force for the Buckeyes in spite of their ups and downs. “We have to take one game at a time and play as a team,” said Hill. “Everybody needs to play their role and we just have to play defense.” Tip-off is set for 8 p.m. Thursday at Assembly Hall in Champaign, Ill. read more

Mens soccer Ohio State seeks revenge against Michigan State in Big Ten

Senior defender Hunter Robertson (6) passes the ball upfield during the OSU vs. Penn State game on Tuesday. Credit: Ris Twigg | Assistant Photo EditorThe No. 6 seed Ohio State men’s soccer team hits the road and looks for revenge against the No. 3 seeded Spartans in the first round of the Big Ten tournament at 1 p.m. Sunday at DeMartin Stadium in East Lansing, Michigan.The Buckeyes (7-9-1, 3-5-0 Big Ten) enter the matchup riding an eight-game losing streak, which started against the Spartans, as Ohio State lost 5-1 on Oct. 1. In their last game of the season, the Buckeyes fell 2-0 to Wisconsin.Head coach John Bluem thought the cause of the loss came from self-inflicted mistakes by the team.“I think what we learned most from that game is that our own mistakes is what really killed us,” Bluem said. “Immediately after tying the game up, before halftime we allowed another goal which kind of killed us. In the second half, I don’t think we had the attitude and the mental capacity to come back from that mistake.”The Spartans (11-2-3, 5-0-3 Big Ten) are coming off of a 1-1 tie against Indiana and are undefeated at home this season (5-0-2). The five in-conference wins were the most in program history.Senior forward Nate Kohl believes the loss earlier in the season to the Spartans was not an accurate representation of Ohio State.“We’re going to Michigan State and it’s not an easy place to play, but I believe that if we play at our very best I think we can beat them,” Kohl said. “I mean the game we played earlier in East Lansing this year, I don’t think it was the character of our team. A 5-1 loss wasn’t Ohio State soccer, we’re going to come out and we’re going to be ready to play.”The Buckeyes are led offensively by junior midfielder Abdi Mohamed, who has 11 points (three goals, five assists), and freshman forward Joshua Jackson-Ketchup, who has seven points (three goals, one assist). But scoring will not be easy against junior goalkeeper Jimmy Hague, who was the first-ever Spartan to win Big Ten Goalkeeper of the Year.Ohio State will take on a tough Spartan defense, which ranks second in the nation in shutout percentage (.643) and 11th in team goals against average (.667).The Spartans are led offensively by junior forward Ryan Sierakowski, who has 17 points (seven goals, three assists), and junior forward Dejuan Jones, who has 16 points (six goals, four assists). The Buckeyes hope to return starting sophomore goalie Parker Siegfried, who is 7-5-1 on the season.The Buckeye defense is holding opponents to 1.24 goals per game, but Siegfried allows just .90 goals per game and has picked up seven shutouts.Senior defender Hunter Robertson is embracing the Buckeyes’ underdog role and thinks it can play to their advantage. “Every year I’ve played in the Big Ten tournament there has always been some upsets,” Robertson said. “They thrashed us the first time, but I think this time if we can bring more intensity into the gameplay, be more physical, and if we can get one or two on them we can win the game.”Even though it’s single-game elimination, Robertson has confidence in his team to push through the adversity presented to them.“One game at a time, if you lose you’re out that’s the mindset right now,” Robertson said. “If we lose this game it’s my last game playing at Ohio State and I really don’t want that to happen, so I’ll do whatever I can to prevent it.”Robertson is one of three Ohio State players in the past 10 years to start in over 80 matches. He wants his senior year to continue and to have the chance to set the school record for most starts in program history, which would only be possible if the Buckeyes make it to the National Championship game.“If you would have told me that I was going to have that many starts when I first came in, I probably would’ve laughed and told you that you were crazy,” Robertson said. “I feel very humble and appreciative of every opportunity the coaches have given me and this has been, by far, the best experience of my life and I hope I can drag it out for as long as possible.” read more

Rep Hornberger votes on legislation to support veterans

Pamela Hornberger today joined her House colleagues in voting for legislation allowing national veterans club members and other service clubs to buy alcoholic drinks in any affiliated out-of-town club.Hornberger, of Chesterfield Township, co-sponsored the legislation, which was prompted by a recent Liquor Control Commission ruling that brought an end to the custom.“Our veterans have done so much for their nation, and deserve an opportunity to join their colleagues at clubs with which they are affiliated across the state,” Hornberger said. “Service organizations such as the Eagles or Moose perform vital services in many of our communities and should be afforded the same opportunity. This is a time-honored tradition and should be allowed to continue.”The bill was necessary after the Liquor Control Commission interpreted a law by ruling only members of the local club could buy drinks at that location.The measure now goes to the Senate for consideration.#####The legislation is House Bill 5260.center_img 07Mar Rep.
