basketball IQ verging on genius level
Most overrated thing about Craft. He made plenty of boneheaded mistakes, especially this year, so I would not say that his Basketball IQ was genius level.
i agree that Missouri would have been a better fit than maryland, rutgers, or uconn, but I based my topic on the B1G wanting a NY team and what was the better option
When ET left it was more than just Sully. Diebler, Buford, and Lighty could light it up, too.
I don't get it either.
Next year isn't a rebuilding year. The Buckeye will be fine; I actually think they will be really good next year. Next year looks like 2007 and 2011 all over again to me. We have a mix of upperclassmen and a top 5 recruiting class.
He is a C- to me.
I did not call him nauseating, I called the way you all gush all over him nauseating, I am a Buckeye Fan. Believe or not, not all of us worship Craft. Funny, the other day I was talking to 2 other fans in person and we all agreed that he sucked, was glad that he is gone, that the team will be so much better next year without him, and did not understand why everyone loves him so much. And you guys can criticize other players and no one questions your fandom, but God forbid your darling gets criticized and I must be a #ichigan troll.
I was actually replying to BucksFan, but hey I agree with your comment , too.
Ironically he won the title with seniors and juniors, not the one and dones (Irving, Parker, RIvers)
I agree with everything you said, unfortunately you will reach -10 down votes. DIdn't you know you are not suppose to criticize Craft?
Lol, following all the Craft stories? There seems to be abundance of them so they are hard to miss. Again I am not a troll, If you guys can comment on how much you Love Aaron Craft, or how sorry Amir WIlliams is, then why cannot I comment on how overrated I think Craft is without being called a troll.
Not saying its his fault, just pointing out the leadership myth and how fans criticize the whole team except for Craft, but then call him a great leader. So maybe other 11W fans should also rise above calling out everyone else. Seems like every player is fair game, but him.
Not a troll, a Buckeye Fan like the rest of you. I just do not see what everyone else sees in Craft. He might be a nice guy and a superior student who has heart and hustle, but you guys act like he was some super star. Just seems like another Steve Wojciechowski to me. There are two Craft myths:
1. He is a leader - You guys love to call him a leader, but in the next sentence will criticize the rest of the team. So if the rest of the team has no passion or heart where is the leader?
2. He is a smart player - I guess if you don't count all the ill advised shots, turnovers, bad fouls, etc...
So Craft is a great leader, but according to most of you Q, WIlliams, Thompson, etc... have no hussle or heart. Wouldn't a great leader change that? Who exactly was Craft leading then?
This Aaron Craft worship is so nauseating; reminds me of Tebow and the Gator fans. But at least Tebow was actually good in college.
most overrated player ever
this Craft worship is what really made me not like him
And another thing, How exactly was Craft a smart player like you all like to claim? He always made boneheaded plays, silly turnovers, bad fouls, ill advised shots, etc… But somehow he was a smart player.
lol, I just said the same thing in a post.
I am glad Craft is gone. The team will be much better with him gone, it is going to be like the 2007 and 2011 years where we had a lot of seniors and a great freshmen class to compliment. Craft really sucked big time and I don't know why all you guys swoon over him so much. I will get down voted for saying this, but would have gotten massive up votes if I said the same thing about Smith Jr., Amir, Thompson, Q, or Scott. The latter four will be so much better next year. I will be saving this post and bumping it on Selection Sunday when Ohio State is the overall #1 seed.
I am optimistic about next year. it reminds me of the 2007and 2011 years where we had a lot of seniors mixed with a talented freshmen class.
I guess I am the only one that agrees with you Rural Meyer
I think Diebler improved every year. He was terrible his freshman year and was a sharp shooter his senior year. Turner also improved a lot from where he started. Ditto for Lighty.
