bedlam Bedlam Basketball | OU vs. OSU | Game Thread

Image via ktul.com

Trying something a little bit different as the Football Brainiacs continue to expand their presence amongst Sooner Nation, this time with a basketball game thread.

Because a Top 25 Bedlam match-up warrants the coverage.

So hang out with us, take part in the comments, and watch what should be a terrific basketball game between two teams — and fanbases — that don’t particularly care for one another.

 

  • Jordan Esco

    let’s do this damn thing!

    • HeathC

      about time I was getting worried

      • Jordan Esco

        I’ve just never understood putting the thread up an hour before tip

  • Jordan Esco

    now don’t make me regret this y’all. there will be no talking to myself here tonight.

    • Super K

      You’re the most entertaining person you know anyway Jordan! :)

      • Jordan Esco

  • Jordan Esco

    unconfirmed rumor Smart flopped during the pregame intros

    • Super K

  • Brad

    BOOMER!

    • Jordan Esco

      SOONER!

    • Super K

      and…SOONER!

  • Brad

    Prediction?

    • Jordan Esco

      I expect it to be close, but optimistic OU can pull it out in the end. OSU has a bunch of talent.

  • Leroy Jenkins

    “WE WANT DRE!!!”

    • Super K

      I can tell his mama is hoping the crowd chants that!

      • HeathC

        I am not sure are crowd is smart enough to even know he is there and who he is

        • Jordan Esco

          don’t underestimate them my friend

          • Cole Williams

            I think the rufneks and soonermen are gonna try to start the chant via twitter

      • Brad

        Hes probably number 3 on my wish list!

  • Isaac Wright

    BOOMER

    • Super K

      SOONER!

  • HeathC

    My wife has officially left the room

    • Super K

      LOL

  • HeathC

    Not a good shot by Buddy

  • HeathC

    NICE

  • Brad

    BUDDY LOVE!

  • Jordan Esco

    Tough draw tonight for Woodard with Smart defending

  • HeathC

    Nice Rebound Spangler

    • Jordan Esco

      dude is a beast

  • Isaac Wright

    Spangler can rebound with the best of them

  • Brad

    How do yall like spanglers matchup tonight?

    • Jordan Esco

      needs to dominate

  • HeathC

    Woodard has to do more of that and get Smart into foul trouble

    • Brad

      Agreed

    • HeathC

      Got to make FT’s

    • Jordan Esco

      +100

  • Adrian

    Ryan Spangler (My favorite) and Steven Clark. Players to watch. I played with the Woodard brothers and Steven Clark. He could ball at Douglass and pull up from Half Court with ease.

  • HeathC

    BEAST SPANGLER

  • Isaac Wright

    WOW

  • Brad

    Spangler!

  • Lesslie Stanford

    Wow incredible effort by Spangler. I think he wants this w tonight!

  • Guest

    Now this is funny.

  • Jordan Esco

    unnecessary foul

  • Brad

    Too many open shots

  • Jordan Esco

    where’s the foul?!?

    • HeathC

      NO JOKE

  • Jordan Esco

    crowd is LIVE tonight!

  • Brad

    We need the cam clark from the kansas game

  • Leroy Jenkins

    Anybody see this guy? This is great.

    • Leroy Jenkins

      Accidentally uploaded it twice…oops.

      • Sooner Ray

        You’re always bringing too much game Leroy!

  • HeathC

    I don’t like Neal on Nash

  • HeathC

    How did that not fall

  • HeathC

    AND 1

  • Lesslie Stanford

    That hook was so pretty if only it would have dropped!

  • Brad

    Nice

  • Jordan Esco

    And1 baby

  • Brad

    Spangler has improved his free throw shooting

    • Lesslie Stanford

      My high school played him 3 or 4 times when he was at Bridge Creek. He played a lot of a point forward type player and had some pretty good range then. I don’t remember much about him shooting FT though.

      • Brad

        Capel messed up not recruiting him

        • Lesslie Stanford

          Big time. He was a kid that wanted to be in Oklahoma.

  • HeathC

    BIG 3

  • HeathC

    2 blocks for DJ

  • Jordan Esco

    don’t cut under screens for Forte!

  • Jordan Esco

    two turrible shots from Buddy Love so far

  • Jordan Esco

    #hello!

  • HeathC

  • Jordan Esco

    hells yeah!

    • HeathC

      • Jordan Esco

        they’re getting what they deserve as far as I’m concerned

  • HeathC

    I don’t know about that foul call there

  • HeathC

    Tyler got bailed out there

  • Lesslie Stanford

    Smart picks up his second!

    • Jordan Esco

      excellent!

  • Brad

    Smart cant hurt us on the bench

    • Jordan Esco

      those chairs better watch their back tho

      • Brad

        Its ok he will tweet them later and apologize

        • Jordan Esco

          zing!

  • HeathC

    BOOKER

    • Jordan Esco

      sharp. shooter.

  • HeathC

    Nice feed from Booker

  • Jordan Esco

    Booker dropping dimes!

  • HeathC

    Somebody needs to take a charge

  • HeathC

    Spangler is in foul trouble now

  • Jordan Esco

    damn

  • Lesslie Stanford

    That is a terrible call on Ryan Spangler!

  • Jordan Esco

    c’mon Buddy! dunk that

  • Jordan Esco

  • Isaac Wright

    We aren’t shooting free throws very good tonight

  • HeathC

    Getting Chippy…I like it

    • Brad

      Hope dre dont mind its with his brother

  • Lesslie Stanford

    Could not ask for much better of a start. Get Nash and Smart on the bench early. And jump out to a lead. Boomer!

    • Jordan Esco

      need to extend it tho with those two guys on the bench. Sooner!

      • HeathC

        +1

  • Sooner Ray

    Damn, this thread didn’t show up on the main site, thought it failed.

    • Jordan Esco

      didn’t either for me on the iPad but was there for me on the phone. weird.

  • Lesslie Stanford

    Is it bad sitting watching this and seeing Clark catch the ball that I immediately think he would have shot that at Douglass?

  • Jordan Esco

    some HUGE minutes from Bennett so far

    • HeathC

      He is playing great right now

  • Sooner Ray

    Hope we don’t fowl out early

  • HeathC

    More Blake Griffin commercials please

  • HeathC

    Forte is their best player right now

  • HeathC

    Nice drive Buddy

  • Sooner Ray

    Some boys that are still learning playing pretty good so far against NBA talent

  • Lesslie Stanford

    Sounds like Musbeger has his money on the Sooners tonight!

    • Sooner Ray

      Mus doesn’t know where his hotel is

  • Jordan Esco

    so smooth

  • HeathC

    And another nice drive for Buddy

  • Jordan Esco

    dang

  • HeathC

    Dang that kid can shoot

    • Jordan Esco

      might want to defend him on the arc. just sayin

  • Leroy Jenkins

    Anyone have a mute button for that little girl screaming during the free throws?

  • Jordan Esco

    do we really need a camera dedicated to a Smart on the bench? me thinks not

  • Jordan Esco

    unreal

  • HeathC

    Lets get Spangler in the last couple of mins of the half

    • Sooner Ray

      Foul trouble

    • Lesslie Stanford

      I disagree. I would much rather take the lead into the half and keep Spangler with 2 fouls then try and stretch it out more and him possibly pick up a third.

  • Jordan Esco

    wtf was that shot???

    • Sooner Ray

      EXACTLY!!

  • HeathC

    In and out

  • HeathC

    NICE LOB

  • Lesslie Stanford

    LOB CIty?

  • Jordan Esco

    gorgeous!

  • Brad

    Is there such thing as an osu flop drinking game? If so wed be hammered

    • Sooner Ray

      Is there a drinking game they don’t have?

      • Brad

        Damn good point

  • HeathC

    What a shot by Tyler

  • Jordan Esco

    WOW

  • HeathC

    Tough foul call there

  • Sooner Ray

    Hope we have a finish like this

  • Jordan Esco

  • Brad

    Kruger always looks like he just heard funny inside joke

  • Sooner Ray

    Well Jordo, you pulled off the BB thread and people actually showed up! Nice job.

    • Brad

      I agree. This isnt an easy thing to get people into. On another note, I really enjoy the brainiacs and their info

      • Sooner Ray

        Top notch, I can’t wait to see the site rebuild

    • HeathC

      I too am glad we can do this for basketball

    • Jordan Esco

      just giving the people what they want, no thanks necessary :)

      • Sooner Ray

        That’s what you’ve always done, that’s why we’re here!

  • Adrian

    I hate we might be on a Markel Brown highlight but that back door screen for a lob was pretty. Boys came to play tonight and Deondre wants to sit in the Student section

  • Jordan Esco

    somebody has gone full on beergut :)

  • Brad

    Now.. #thunderup during half time

    • HeathC

      They are trying to come back

  • ohiosoonerdevildog

    • HeathC

      OH no here we go

      • Sooner Ray

        We’re all gonna be banned!

      • ohiosoonerdevildog

        Haha screw it. Those low life pathetic excuses for men.

    • Sooner Ray

      I peeked, it’s the same lonely conversation

    • Jordan Esco

      haha! I would but I’m quite certain I’m still banned. have thoroughly enjoyed my critique of them whining about refs, only to be met w/ world record level denial, has been more than sufficiently justified w/ countless posts since doing just that.

      • Sooner Ray

        You’re even banned from the neibors house?

      • ohiosoonerdevildog

        I can give you my pw for sbnation and let you get 1 solid rant in. Just make sure it would make me proud.

  • HeathC

    Needed a charge call on Smart there

  • HeathC

    3rd on Nash

    • Jordan Esco

  • HeathC

    WOW

  • Jordan Esco

  • HeathC

  • Jordan Esco

  • Sooner Ray

    B F’n S

  • HeathC

  • Brad

  • Jordan Esco

    ONIONS!

  • Bam

    What high school did Woodard go to?

    • Sooner Ray

      Edmond Memorial

  • Sooner Ray

    Sometimes these ref’s make me think about the pac 12

  • HeathC

    Shooting lights out

  • Jordan Esco

    outstanding

  • HeathC

    4th on Nash…no self control there

  • Jordan Esco

    what a moron

  • Brad

    Nashy go bye bye

  • Jordan Esco

    dude is gonna go down as one of the most overrated players in Puke history

    • Brad

      From 1st round pick in coming freshman to maybe 2nd round?

    • Bam

      Don’t seem so devastated by that Jordan lol

  • ToatsMcGoats

    I just stopped by the “other” site…Heath C. was right…it’s just Rich DeCray posting like 100 comments…LAWL (this is the actual pronunciation of LOL in case you didn’t know).

  • Jordan Esco

    in a thread where you are literally talking to only yourself you drop a ‘boom goes the dynamite.

    I’d like to introduce you to someone, rock bottom.

    • Sooner Ray

      Hello? is anyone there?

      • ToatsMcGoats

        Rich DeCray.

        • Sooner Ray

          WHO?

          • ToatsMcGoats

            BAHAHAHA!!!

          • Sooner Ray

            BOOM SHAKALAKA!

      • Brad

        “Hey rich, its rich. How do you like the game so far?”

        • ToatsMcGoats

          LOL

    • blaster1371

      Meh….. It’s only basketball.

  • HeathC

    Should the fans take it a little easy on Clark right now

  • Jordan Esco

    uh-oh, Deondre ain’t gonna like this

    • Sooner Ray

      Does he not like winners?

      • Brad

        His brother goes to osu, you figure it out..

        • Sooner Ray

          sarcasm?

          • Brad

            Yeah..

  • Lesslie Stanford

    Wow. Clark fouled out with 1218 to go. Time to attack Smart hard!

  • Bam

    Seeing the tweets from Rufus Alexander to Dre Clark?

  • HeathC

    Kruger needs to get on them a little bit. Someone needs to step in the lane and take a charge on Smart. Do that and it could be a game changer

  • Jordan Esco

    need to start running again, our game isn’t slowing it down in the half court

  • Sooner Ray

    Someone break that kids arms!

  • HeathC

    Big answer

  • Jordan Esco

    dang it

  • HeathC

    Wow….are you going to call every touch foul

  • Jordan Esco

    here come the refs

  • Leroy Jenkins

    Rufus Alexander is blowing up Dre Clark’s twitter for the past hour or so. Still waiting for the “WE WANT DRE!!!” chants

    • Jordan Esco

      arena needs to show him on the big screen

      • Sooner Ray

    Man was hoping that would be Smart right there with the foul!

  • Sooner Ray

    Hope Spangler makes it to the end

  • Lesslie Stanford

    Smart is begging for a cheap foul call at this point!

  • Sooner Ray

    BIG foul!

  • Jordan Esco

    loving it

  • Brad

    Spangler is a grown man out there.

  • Ed Cotter

    Very nice win tonight for the Sooners. Beating your Top 10 ranked in-state rival is always sweet. Keep it going Sooners!

  • Shelby is a Patriot

    Great game! Boomer Sooner!

  • Cory Reedy

    Man…what a night! Live near Austin, TX now but up visiting the family in Owasso. Got to take my 3-yr old and 5-yr old to their first Thunder game. What a show that was. AND my Sooners beat OSU!?!? It’s a GREAT time to be a Sooner and a Thunder fan!

  • soonernation

    I work evening shift, so was not able to watch the game (Did keep up with the score of the game). I watched the game on DVR after I got home. How AWESOME were the SOONERS tonight. Loved the team effort. They are a team that plays together as one, I love that in the Sooner family. Bob Stoops, Lon Kruger, Sherri Coale, KJ Kindler. Mark Williams, and all of the other Sooner coaches seem to embrace the family/close knitt culture tor new recruits to beocme as large of the program as they would like to become themselves.
    Sorry,Im getting tired, hope I am on top of things. I thought the Bedlam game was an awesome win for OU, but thought that the officials were a deffinate part of the game. Thought the Smart flop late in the game was sooooo bogus. He seems to be able to get calls that should have been against himself. what an acting job. Would like to see the NCAA officials take a better response to the flop calls. But long story short, The Sooners were all over the Cowboys from the start. Great Win!!!
    Go Soonmers!!!!
