Kid shows up at OSU and is asked by Matta to work hard ... And he kind of does ...

Funny thing is, I thought he was the "glue" guy in the class, and would be a do-everything kind of player. I was disappointed he chose to leave.

But going to UCSB? How does that further his development or get him to the next level?  With Grandstaff to Oklahoma, i can understand moving to a more shooting-based offense in a offense-driven league ... There are two players in the NBA from UCSB ... Yikes!

Matta has sent many players to the NBA ... he just preaches team-first and defense first. Imagine if Evan Turner would have transferred after his Frosh year because he only averaged 8.5 points per game.

What a great game that 2011 Wisconsin game was ... 2002 game against PSU was great as well ...
And I don't know about you all, but I still watch the 1969 and 1996 OSU/UM games hoping for different outcomes ...

I think the article is an interesting viewpoint, but how many of those close games that OSU won during Meyer's era did the same offensive philosophy pervade -- i.e., doing something different than handing the ball to Zeke or Hyde?  I think with vertical threats being re-established in 2016 (AND A VERTICAL PASSING GAME WILL BE REESTABLISHED), we won't be talking about the absence of running plays to bell-cows but instead will be talking about how much more enjoyable a balanced offense is (a la 2014 come playoff time).

OK, done with lunch and back to work ...
