Matta doesn't need to recruit better shooters, he needs to recruits SCORERS! I played bball in college and was a good shooter, but a better scorer. They are not the same people. Yes, being a great shooter HELPS you to score, but what this team sorely lacks is that guy who WANTS to score and can do it. Think DT last year. He was a decent shooter, but dude could fill buckets. They don't really have that guy who when they need a bucket demands the ball and delivers. Q is trying, but his I don't think it's in his personality to be "The MAN". Think back to when Sully was here, he demanded the ball and teams had to respect him. That opens things up so much for the "shooters", those stand still jump shooters, a la Jon Deibler. Right now the other team basically doens't have to guard Craft, Scott or Lenzel from outside 15 feet. Q is the only option this team has and he's not built to carry a team. What DT brought to the table was the guy who, when not shooting great would go low, get fouled, get an O rebound and put back. That is what a scorer does. Can you recall any offensive rebounds last night and put backs? DT WANTED to score and you need the ball to do that.

 

When Thad gets another guy with a scorer's mentatilty, we'll be fine. That will open things up for the others and make their games that much better. Craft's shot has actually looked better this year, but he isn't playing as the 4th option anymore, he's now the 2nd option sometimes.

Great read Ramzy! As a side note I was the beneficiary of your dinner with Maurice, as I won the 11W raffle for the football signed by Mo.

Ramzy,

You have the innate ablility to concisely put down in words what I, and I imagine many of my fellow Buckeye faithful, struggle to adequately articulate. All of us have dealt with JT's resignation in our own way and I have tried my best to put these events in my own personal boxes of morality, outrage, depresssion, etc. 

Thanks for being able to boil down these complex issues and feelings into something that is easily digested without sounding condenscending or preachy. You always seem to hit just the right note in your writing. 

Hats off again to a wonderful piece of prose...

Wonderful piece Ramzy...you've outdone yourself!

Quick question for everyone....why is Posey not getting more heat? He was the other name in the original email along with TP, named in the SI article, bought a car from Kiffin and also was on the golf course with Talbot. I understand that TP has said some dumb things in the past, but Posey seems to be skating on this whole issue. He seems to have been TP's running mate whenever somebody was handing out something. I guess it just shows you that when you're in a hole, stop digging. Posey has mostly kept his mouth shut since Tat-gate and kept a low profile...maybe TP should have done the same.

But at the end of the day, DP seems to have been running in the same circles as TP was yet nobody seems pissed at him. I haven't heard Boom or Adams names mentioned in other cases either, just Devier's. And if you remember it was Devier's mom who spoke out when Tat-gate broke. I'm not trying to deflect criticism from TP, just saying....

Have to agree with Pam. As a parent, I felt sorry for TP. Like others have mentioned I don't think he's a bad kid, hell I think he was all academic BT 3 years. He looked totally in over his head. What the kid needs is someone to grab him and explain to him what it means to be humble. He seemed sorry for what's happended, but I'm not sure he really understands why he should be sorry. Like my 5 year old when she messes up. She knows she did wrong, but really doesn't understand why I'm upset.

I think at the end of the day Coach Tress let TP down as much as TP let Coach down. For some reason JT never seemed to be able to discipline TP the way he probably needed. He doesn't seem to have a firm grasp on actions and consequences. He desperately needs someone to be completely honest with him about his abilities and weaknesses and Drew Rosenhaus is NOT that man.

That was an amazing piece of writing. Sometimes you read something that someone else wrote that gets to the heart of how YOU feel, but can't seem to find the right way to say it. This is that piece for me. I never met JT, but this is what it's all about.

Thanks Ramzy for sharing your perspective on JT. Unfortunately this kind of story doesn't sell magazines or newspapers and will be ignored by the mainstream media.

Well done Sir!
