PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Tank may need a new nickname...probably not, but one can dream.

Really hope we can see big things from Thomas this year. He is the player who will make this team better or worse than the last one.
Does this kid have a nickname yet? Let's keep it simple: "Shooter".
Don't text while driving.
If Denard Robinson isn't careful with spooning all that food into his mouth, he's going to end up lookin' like Whoopi Goldberg
Tank is his nickname. All he does is shoot long range.
thought it was "Tank" because no one could stop him from shooting
Titus wrote that Thomas is his favorite Buckeye player ever because he has unique abilities as a scorer. Thomas has "it." I'd say that "it" is hard to describe but Thomas actually decribes "it" very well in talking about himself:
“It’s just being in that right moment,” Thomas said. “I’m the kind of guy, there’s like a string — I’m always attached to the ball. So it’s just being in the right spot. It’s just a knack for the ball I have. That’s what’s special about me.”
That's what amazes me about Thomas: there appears to be a string connecting the ball to his hands. When he releases a shot that is going to miss, he's the first one to know where the ball is going, and he's on it immediately, grabbing the ball and scooping it back into the bucket - and he first exhibited this special trait last year while playing 10-15 pounds over his ideal weight.
When the great scorers are playing, it's almost like the other players are standing around watching them.
