National Championship LiveBlog

Written April 2nd, 2011 by Eric

This season marked our first official run of Basketball LiveBlogs on the Buckeye Battle Cry.    And what a first year it was!   A strong Basketball team, plus several years of Football LiveBlogging experience, made these an absolute blast.

Three blogs joined us from the beginning – Silver Bullet, Our Honor Defend and Fox Sports Ohio – and how lucky we were to have their support.  Without their help, these LiveBlogs don’t come anywhere close to what they finally became.  Eventually Scarlet and Game, a newer member to the OSU blogging family, and Men of the Scarlet and Gray joined us as well and helped send these LiveBlogs into the stratosphere.

While the OSU sports are done for the season, we simply can’t quit the LiveBlogs yet.  On Monday night, we will run the final LiveBlog of the 2010-2011 season by covering the National Championship game.  Think of it as one last chance to make fun of the commentators with all of your favorite OSU sports buddies!

You may notice that we’ve posted an add for the LiveBlog on the right sidebar of the website (you’ll also find it below, in this post).  Look there in the future for our next upcoming LiveBlog for both Football and Basketball.  You can also set it to give you an email reminder!  Isn’t technology wonderful these days?

For those who haven’t yet taken the time to stop by and see what all the excitement is about, you’re missing quite the show.  You should sneak a peak during this National Championship game!  If you don’t, you’ll just have to wait until September for the next one (or the Spring “Game”, if it’s televised).

For all of you who joined us for our LiveBlogs this year, thank you for making them so successful!  We absolutely couldn’t have done it without you!

    Dear Jesus…

    Anyone but Kentucky.

    Thanks, Amen.

    Jay’s team (Butler) advanced. I’m sure he’s excited about it right now.

    I’m counting on UConn. It’s only slightly less likely that their wins won’t be vacated.

    This should be an interesting Finals. I’m going to tune in to see if announcers mention anything about Calhoun’s transgressions. And to see how quickly they segue to Tressel, just because it’s CBS.

    Don’t hold your breath. It seems as if, when it’s Tressel it’s earthshattering, but when it’s Calhoun it’s not.

    Almost as if they expected it from him or something.

    Well put When one behaves to expectations, it’s really nonremarkable. Sigh.

    Didn’t get to watch the game… what was the final “Calhoun suspension” tally?

    And yes, you can use negative or imaginary numbers.

    Speaking of championship type stuff, I’ve got another #1 ranked team to pull for; Princeton 1V Lightweight Crew, here claiming the all-important Fosburgh Cup.

    Oh, that’s my nephew in the white ball cap.

    Congrats Ken!

    We’ll be rooting for him too, as long as he’s not pullin’ against the Buckeyes =D

    I just checked the race schedule, and the Buckeyes and Tigers do not square off in this class. Whew! However, on the 16th, the Openwight Women meet for The Eisenberg Cup (OSU, Yale, Princeton) at Yale. Go Bucketes!
