Why can't our basketball program  achieve 80% of what  our football program does ?

Why isn't our BB program improving ?

Why do WE have a problem retaining our better players(yes all schools loose players.....we seem to loose more in fact we were sanctioned a while back because of our  many 6 months and done recruits/players.

yes...I think we can do better

FIRST>>>>>>>>>They need to win their conference.Clearly that is impossible.

SECOND>>>>>>>Going to the big dance and getting embarrassed...again .I don't think so.

Comment 22 Feb 2015

I look at Urban's coaching staff and the incredible job they did making the various players better.MUCH BETTER. And I say :

WHY can't Matta recruit better ? Why can't players be coached up better on the basketball team ?

WHY aren't players who are not performing watching from the bench ?

Comment 13 Feb 2015

Urban has an ability to identify coaches who are great recruiters and great player coaches.They are elite talent who come to work for URBAN for the same reason players come to OHIO  have a chance to move on to the next level.Their short tenure(the coaches and the players) are programmed into URBAN's system.

Comment 12 Feb 2015

I'm sure URBAN had a frank discussion about the tools he would need to rebuild the OSU football program durng his job interview. Money for top level coaches being one of those tools. Urban has added millions to the OSU treasury with his victories,more than repaying the premium salaries he and his coaching staff  are paid.

First Stan D.. leaves his recruits high and dry with Urban's knowledge.....

then Urban compounds the act by hiring Tony Alford......causing him to leave all his recruits swing in the wind !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1)(Stan D. to a recruit)"Hi...I'm Stan Drayton.We'd like you to accept our scholarship offer ,and by the way It's highly likely, I may not be at Ohio State if you accept our offer.But we really want you here."

2)(Stan Drayton to Coach Meyer)  "Coach Meyer...I have to stop recruiting.I'm actively interviewing for several jobs and may be leaving your employment momentarily. It would look bad for me and you if I left after recruiting anyone ".

3) (coach Meyer to Stan D.) "Please keep recruiting and fooling as many recruits as you can.It's really fun coaching a bunch of malcontents and having the media making incessant innuendoes about my recruiting when they don't know the facts".

Comment 06 Feb 2015

I'm frankly taken aback by the naivete expressed by some.

What is college football today. It is a business.....For many colleges like OHIO STATE,a very big business.

What are college football recruiters. In the recruiting business the term we use is "hiring authority" (a person who has the power to make hiring decisions).

So what the OP is advocating is that the recruiting coachs("hiring authoritys") disclose all the job interviews he has had and is about to have(and their potential outcome)  when he talks to any recruit.

So what the Op is advocating is that when you interview for any job with a company(in this case OHIO STATE) that is trying to recruit you into the company....that every "hiring authority" you speak to should disclose the job interviews he has had and is expecting to have during their recruiting conversations with you.The company president......the supervisor you will be working for....the Human Resources recruiter. ALL NEED TO REVEAL WHO THEY MAY OR WILL INTERVIEW WITH.

In the case of  the OSU company

URBAN MEYER......needs to disclose all his conversations with the NFL

TIM BECK........needs to disclose

ED WARINER...........needs to disclose

OF COURSE this is ludicrous...just as the argument that DRAYTON should have disclosed is ludicrous.

Comment 05 Feb 2015

-Drayton could have interviewed weeks ago and was offered today.We don't know that didn't happen.

How could anyone know how important Drayton was or wasn't in the young mans decision ?

Why denigrate URBAN MEYER ,our football program,  and THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY as THE key factors in Mike's decision to  select Ohio State  ? (coaches come and go all the time.That is normal. In fact it is probably why many coaches decide to work for springboard their careers to the next level).

Net net......"nothing to see here....move along".

Comment 18 Jan 2015
