Hot Take: Thad retains his position for another week...
Good to see Thad is wearing a tie again.
Loving has always been an elite talent in regards to timeout decision making.
Why does up by 4 with a minute left feel like down by 1 with 10 seconds left?
Is this really what we have to resort to?? Celebrating the past in hopes of forgetting or in some way forgiving the present?
There's gotta be some stock in the historical trend that after Urban has a bad loss his teams tend to do some pretty amazing things. So I'll put 20% allocation in that and the remaining 80% in a money market.
Honestly I'm just hoping to stop hearing about Percy Harvin season after season.
Personally I couldn't care less how the media rates our victories, ever. From a championship standpoint we could win every single game, from Sept-January, by 1 point and we are still national champs. Media can shove it. Just win... That's it.
Good. BTN is utter garbage. Hot stinky dumpster doo doo salsa.
I think the sky is falling mentality is looking at the entire program as a whole... comparing recent years performance with this years and now the "supposed" next stars/leaders of our program leaving as well. I don't think the sky is falling... It fell. So now it's time to set reasonable expectations and show Buckeye fans that the proper steps are being taken to rebuild and restore.
Right well... We went from Sugar Bowl champs to 6-7... and them immediately went undefeated, 2 years later a national title and have only accumulated 4 total losses since.
Hoops went from Sweet 16 bounce to first round bounce to NIT bounce. I love your optimism, don't get me wrong. I'm just not cool with the overall "pass" being handed out considering the recent downward spiral combined with the 3 (4 supposedly) transfers ON TOP of DeAngelo Russel coming out and calling out the culture of the OSU program as a whole.
Why would anyone downvote this haha? You're 100% spot on. I wouldn't call him a constant foot out the door... I would rather say he never really had a full foot in the door.
Just to be original...
There was a cerebral moment of mine recently that aligned well with the aforementioned theory.
Shawn in your attempt to contradict the guy you literally just proved his point and answered your own question. But please continue...
Yep, and if I had wheels... I'd be a wagon.
I'm coming out of left field spitting something original, something out of the box, some abstract thinking here... Fire Thad
Apparently you haven't watched too much Buckeye hoops this season.
Can't run and press and expect the boys to not get tired. Much needed TV timeout.
AND HE MADE THE FREETHROW!!
Bad shots, poor offensive sets, missed free throws. To only be trailing by 3 is great. Come out and play even our B+ ball and we should turn this around.
2016 - (Inserts literally 1,500,000 scenarios because he has no idea what to expect)
Should I be optimistic, hopeful and somewhat delusional by saying we have the grit and the youthful exuberance to pull off the upsets on the way to the semi finals? Or should I just be happy if we keep it close and get out of the first round? And then of course should I just prepare to be "understanding" and "reasonable" if we don't even accomplish that much?
Brings back the old adage: "Just Win, Baby."
You can point at this or point at that... fact is we haven't won enough. No excuses necessary. We aren't a tournament ready team this year. Would like to see Thad take this team of young "blue collar grinders" (like Tate) and develop them in to a top 10 team next season. Horizon could be exciting.
I dig that watch he's wearing @1:20 in the vid.
