    I'd bet that Allen was told to go for the layup

    I'm almost willing to bet that the play called for at the end was to have Allen go all the way for the layup?

    Everyone in the building knew Allen was the hottest shooter on the entire floor at the time. Fred knew this too. I'm thinking Fred thought OSU would be prepared for Allen shooting the 3 and thought he could get an easy layup instead.

    Just my gut feeling.

    Yes, you had to make a new thread instead of posting it in the 50 other postgame threads.

    He shouldn't of went on the left side of the hoop...Why wouldn't he go to his right hand?

    Should have sucked everyone in and find Scott for 3.

    He was getting directed that way by the defender

    We know what he "should" have done, with 20/20 hindsight that is.

    I'm just saying that I wouldn't be surprised if he was told in the huddle that OSU would be looking for him to shoot the 3, so go ahead and drive it all the way to the hoop.

    And Ford told his team to stop the ball, which they did.

    Can we have certain posters banned every gameday?

    Blah, blah, blah.... once again nothing constructive to add. Just bashing other posters trying to strike up conversation. I don't know what you personally have against me jukebox, but you should just let it go. Your hatred is just getting old.

    If you don't like any of my posts.... fine.... just don't post. You're the only one criticizing this thread. I wonder why?

    I don't think there would have been time for that.

    Yeah.... JUKEBOX! Man, what is your deal dude? Lighten up. You have NOTHING constructive to say EVER. You hijack threads and turn them into these p*****g matches. Just leave if you don't like them. It's not that hard loser.

    Re: I'd bet that Allen was told to go for the layup

    I am guessing it was more of, "if it (being the 2 points on the drive) is there, take it". Looked like a step back three was available, would have preferred it.

    If only Ok St's player was not wearing #22 and had Booker on the back- would have been a foul for sure.

    I don't think there's any doubt that he was told to drive to the hoop. If it works Fred is a genius, didn't work unfortunately.
