Wouldn't he have to sit out a year?
As well as a coach nobody wants to play for. Current players and recruits.
AAU coaches will not stear their kids toward Thad. They do not like him. If you don't get the AAU coach..you are not getting the kid. Walker's AAU coach wanted him at FSU.
In all seriousness...does anyone have an idea of who is out there OSU can even go after? Bank the scholarships for the new coach next season.
FSU. Welp. Next up...if any
1. The guard situation has one more body. Lets throw a parade.
2. Kam was dreadful last season...especially on defense. Again..him having to start and play heavy minutes does not suit his game.
All this does is add depth..not much else. He is not reallly an impact player. If Kam was a guy that could be counted on to lead, play good defense and hit shots at a regular clip...then this would be fantastic. But he, like so many before him, has not progressed and improved.
Counting on him to be a main cog is risky.
One more and they can scrimmage!! Problem is Kam will start...and he was dreadful on both ends last season in that role.
So who is next on the list? Should be getting down into plans H, I, J and K pretty soon
Maybe both! Really think a roster of 8 or 9 is just crazy....esp with 3 of them being freshmen
And another miss by Thad and his merry men. Next up..who knows...iron man basketball coming soon.
Freaking sucks. The one guys OSU has yet to replace in the offense.
OSU's freaking coach is at Indiana now. Way to miss the boat Geno.
Maybe they can give out scholarships at Dime A Dog Night for the Clippers. Seems nobody has any interest in them otherwise.
If Joey Lane has to play significant minutes this year...then have mercy. Nice kid but looking to a walk on that has not ever played to contribute is not ideal.
Usually Michigan fans just point to their academic superiority when OSU is beating their asses. Now they are going even lower. How sad they are.
I almost prefer them having as many spots open next year so the new coach can come in and get guys he wants. Clean this shit storm up.
If the roster stays as is and Kam returns..that is 9 players. This team will be lucky to win 13-15 games. It will be the worst OSU team next to Ayers' last one and Obie's first one.
And if Matta does survive this season with a losing year and not making the tourney, then he is never getting fired.
I just cannot believe a place like OSU and they cannot even get marginal guys to come in. Nobody wants to play here.
Next season you are looking at having 6 or 7 open scholarships to fill with only 2 commits right now.
9 players IF Williams returns. Looking at maybe 8 players...2 small non shooting guards and not a legit center on the team.
They cannot even go 5 v 5 in practice....Cannot remember a big ten program having 4 open scholarships and tons of PT available and not one person even interested. None.
Guess Thad will have to take 3 or 4 JUCO kids or Walk ons to even fill out a roster. What an absolute mess he has made. This is what happens when AAU coaches do not like you. You simply do not get players.
I think if the coaches could delay his annoucing into mid or late June it allowed the freshness to wear off from that visit and game them more time to go after him.
Never turn down a DT that they wanted. Could provide depth..esp if some players leave
