>The Wessons, Diop, Tate, Jackson, Williams, Potter, Beverly and Funderburke should be enough get us to the NCAA

lol no it's not. we need HELP badly. I wouldn't hope for NCAAs this upcoming year (although it would be a pleasant surprise).

I just want to see some effort on defense, no sulking when refs dont give you calls (cough Lyle & Trevor Thompson cough), & I want to see bodies on the floor for loose balls. There wasnt any grit or effort last season (aside from Jaesean Tate).  Last year's team gave up in the first half so many times it was nauseating.

This is a character building / reformation year, much like Thad's first season, except there isnt any NCAA ban holding us back. Also, I hope Holtmann utilizes his bench (even if they arent good). As much as I love Thad, his use of only 4-6 players was incredibly frustrating.

I think it started when he offered Shannon Scott and let Trey Burke go up north lol. But the criticism was fair considering how awful Grandstaff & Mitchell were. AJ Harris has game but he's just too small. I liked Daniel Giddens defensive presence even tho he was a total liability on offense. Neither Wesson brothers or Braxton Beverly are good (enough) in my opinion (here come the DVs lol). Darius Bazely was right (I hope we can bring him back into the fold btw) Somewhere along the line, thads talent evaluation skills disappeared. At the risk of down votes the Wesson brothers or Braxton Beverly are prime examples.

No argument here. I havent been impressed with the last two classes either.  

Also, I hope he doesnt limit himself to just kids in Ohio. I want to see us cast a nationwide net, like Urban. Please go after the one and dones as well. Not just the "good ole backyard Buckeye kids". You cant win NCAA championships without NBA talent. Yea, Villanova did it but that is an extreme outlier

I hope Holtmann knows how to "play the game" (assauging egos of big time prospects and their AAU coaches) when it comes to recruiting against the big boys. Jerome Hunter, Dwayne Cohill and Jeremiah Francis are crucial for the future of Buckeye Hoops. I hope Ahrens doesn't come back on board. Save that scholly for better players.

The smart thing to do is NOT fire the winningest coach in school history in June with no clear replacement.

the 2nd smartest thing to do would be Luke Fickelling Chris Jent for one season and then conducting a proper, well thought out coaching search well before the start of the summer recruiting period.

Whatever, whats done is done. Best of luck to whoever we hire , and I sincerely hope they make me look foolish for doubting them in the first place.

Ive been here, kiddo. Lol at all of you getting excited over a coach that was easily the 4th or 5th option on our list.

He doesnt even have 5 years experience as a head coach and now you entrust him to coach the basketball team of the 2nd most powerful Athletic Department in the country.

Lol at "sorry to hurt your feelings". That's not an apology. What you should have said is "I'm sorry for the 'you're broke & miserable comments, when the discussion at hand was basketball. It was out of line and not Christian like" . I'm just glad my pastor isn't petulant child who resorts to insults when someone doesn't agree with their opinions. I've never taken personal shots at anyone until you took it there. I'm done though. Go read The Good Book some more. Don't just skim it. You could learn a thing or two.

The last time we had a back and forth, you resorted to petty name calling (insinuating I was broke and miserable) while I spoke strictly about basketball.  You dont even live in Ohio and haven't seen any of these kids play in person IIRC

You're a sanctimonious pompous jerk, and I feel sorry for the people in your flock, "Pastor". 

But I'll reply one last time...I'm talking about coaches at several JUCOs,  an assistant coach at a prominent basketball Ohio HS, 2 AAU coaches ,even relatives of certain recruits that Thad lost out on (to Butler, & North Carolina) 

Again, I have no ill will towards these kids. I'm just calling it how I (and MANY OTHERS) see it.  There is a reason Darius Bazely wanted no parts of playing alongside Wesson and Braxton Beverly.

Some of you are sensitive as hell, & I think it's funny how much faith you all place in Thad Matta's talent evaluation given all the not so productive players he's signed in the last 3 years.
