If you go strictly by the numbers (add all of the stats together to determine the best all-around player stat. wise) some might be surprised by the totals. Of coarse this does not take into account things like leadership, injuries, the position the players play, or how good the players were around them.


Russell: 33.8

Redd: 33.5

Sullinger: 30.1

Oden: 29.9

Jackson: 27.58

Conley: 23.3

There are a lot of variables, but Russell comes out on top and is way ahead of Conley (but Damn Conley was great by the end of the season). IMHO, if Russell continues to play the way he has lately he will at least be B1G Freshman of the Year and 1st. team All B1G, he MIGHT be B1G Player of the Year and 1st. Team All-American.

I agree with your thoughts in your original post that it is going to be real tough to crack the top ten in the future. And I was not trying to get you. I was just saying that Shazier had 140+ last year and it will be tough for anyone to get to that number as long as Urban is our coach. Also you are right last years D was historically awful and I hope we don't see another one that bad for a LONG, LONG time.

OSU has had only 4 triple-doubles in school history. 1 by Dennis Hopson in his SR season, 2 by Even Turner in his JR year, and now D'Angelo just got 1. He is the first Buckeye freshman to have a triple-double.

So the answer to your question is Never.

Your Gif is wrong in one way. It only shows what we do to VT in the first half, it doesn't show us stomping on their face for 30mins (the second half).

I totally agree about Allen Iverson he was very much a selfish player, but if you watch her play you will see Kelsey Mitchell is much different. I expect her scoring average to go down once the excellent players Coach McGuff has brought in and is bringing in, get healthy, arrive on campus, and get much needed experience. Kelsey does an excellent job of trying to get her teammates involved and should be 1 of the favorites for national player of the year over the next 3 seasons. If you are not a fan of the Ohio State women's basketball team then you are going to miss one hell of a ride over the next few years. Maybe you should watch someone play before you despairage them.

You are right Buckeyevet I did feel that I could express that because of how close Buckeye Nation is.. Especially on eleven warriors. I've only been a member of this site for a year or so but I have seen others tell some of their personal stories on this site and I've truly come to realize how close we all are, not just as Ohio State fans but as a Brotherhood, a Sisterhood, and as a family.

I had almost the exact same experience you had Buckeyesouth with my 12 year old son Adrian who is mildly autistic. I also live in the south in Louisiana (to be near my wifes family). Although I am a lifelong Buckeye fan my son never took any interest in the Buckeyes before. He and I did go see the Illinois game at Buffalo Wild Wings this year because I couldn't get it on television and I talked him into going with me. He had a good time but I wouldn't say a great time. On Monday night he decided to watch the game with me in my den because he could see how excited I was about the game. By the end of the first half he was screaming and hollering whenever the Buckeyes did something good or something bad. When the game ended with a Buckeye victory Adrian was in tears and so was I but for a different reason. Ever since Monday night Adrian and I have been transforming his game room to be decorated in Buckeye gear, such as a Buckeye flag, Buckeye pictures, a small replica of Ohio Stadium, hats, t-shirts and other things I've collected through the years, all per his request. I was already 40 years old when my wife and I had Adrian, our only child, and I am 52 now. I suffer from a heart condition that will require me to have a heart transplant in the near future. Due to other health issues the chances of me getting a heart for transplant are pretty slim. So unless the Buckeyes repeat next year this is likely the last National Championship I will ever see my beloved Buckeyes win. I now consider my son a full member of Buckeye Nation and watching the game Monday night with my son was one of the happiest times of my life right up there with the day he was born. It is something I will never forget and I hope he won't either. I'm not sure why I poured all this out on this comments strig except Buckeyesouth's comment put it into perspective for me. Thanks for listening Buckeye Nation....and we have a new member my son Adrian Campbell.
