I played in that building my senior year in high school during the 1983 Boy's HS basketball tourney. I will NEVER forget how loud that place got during the game and how special it was to know I was playing in the same building as some of the all-time greats: Lucas, Hondo, Magic, Kellogg, Williams, and on and on...When we arrived for our game the place was completely empty as myself and my teammates walked to the locker room. I had goosebumps. It was so quiet and majestic' like being in church. And it scared the shit out of me as well! LOL

So sad to know that they are going to tear this landmark down. Every time I'm on campus, I smile knowing that I played in that beautiful arena. Long live SJA!

Bucks have won their first National Championship!! Go Bucks!!

Comment 16 Jan 2015

I am probably a little older than most on this site (50), so I have many memories of seasons past. I really became a Buckeye fan during the mid 70's and although I didn't fully understand what a "National Championship" meant back then, I do now and Jeff is correct. This season should be cherised. I have plenty of bad memories growing up and watching my team lose big games. Hell, the Browns made it an almost annual event, and please don't get me started on the 1997 Indians...

I was born 3 days AFTER the Cleveland Browns won their last championship, my father was only 7 years old the last time the Tribe won the WS..and now I've gotten to celebrate 2 NCs in my lifetime (68 don't count as I was only 4) with the Buckeyes. 

So folks, cherish and honor this season. It was truly one for the ages. I don't think I've ever enjoyed a ride quite like this in my lifetime. 

Go Bucks!

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.
