OK. Matta said he's hanging around. Let him go recruit. What about the assistant coaches? Who's 'legally' allowed to do recruit during a coaching transition?

I know these may sound like silly questions, and a kid is highly unlikely to commit without a head coach, but it's really turning out to be a bad move by Smith. Right now, this is on him.

The 25 schools that make the most money in college sports Oct 2016. Source: Business Insider

3. Ohio State — $167.2 million

1-year change: +15.1%

5-year change: +35.7%

Donations: $33.0 million

Licensing/Rights fees: $57.1 million

3-year avg. football revenue: $70.2 million

3-year avg. men's basketball revenue: $21.4 million

3-year avg. women's basketball revenue: $1.1 million

UofA wasn't even in the top 25 (But neither was USC)

Of the top 25 only Louisville (43 mil) and Kentucky (23 mil) averaged more than our basketball program. Wisky came close with 20 mil

That there is I why I love that man. He loves the game and loves the kids.

In any case. I'm not high on Sean Miller. Let him stay at UofA. If we're going to pay, then get Donovan or the kid from Celtics. Maaybe Marshall.

Otherwise, I'd be happy with an up and coming young coach (other than Mack and Cronin) and letting him have a few year to make this his.

It's fun blasting the kids. Especially the ones that didn't have the folks to tell them they're making a mistake leaving THEOsu.

Because you know, OhioState never produces NBA talent never makes the Dance.

The one's that had legit reasons I'll leave alone ...

So what has to be offered to these kids other than a sports program that is loaded in history, money, LeBron, Nike, and cultural security in order for them to work hard, keep their noses clean, and stick around?

The Ohio State basketball program may be down, but that could change on a dime in two years. This isn't Winthrop.

How are we so sure that Archie REALLY wanted to coach Ohio State? If he did, he would have held out, right? We all knew Thad would have to leave pretty soon. It was obvious his health wasn't going to hold out. At best, Ohio State was one of his options, as was Indiana.

You don't just fire the Most Winning Basketball coach in Ohio State history willy-nilly. You give him the benefit of the doubt.

Sorry. You're wrong.
