I was an usher at the Shoe from 1997 to 2009. When I retired I moved to Allen, Texas (5A football state champs the last two years in a row - ask D. Wilson, M. Mitchell and the future soon to be one of the best linemen to put on tOSU uniform, Mr. Knox about Allen, Texas football). Love the Buckeyes and follow them throughout the year. Shout out to all my friends in section 23A - 25A Radar is alive and well.

There's a lot of Bull down here and they don't like the Ohio State Buckeyes.  As for snow shovels we don't have them, but we do have golf clubs and we use them year round.  You may not believe this but when it's too hot we jump in the pool or go inside to the AC.  Y'all have a nice day and play in the snow you lucky dogs, Buba and me have a tee time for this afternoon.  Only in the upper 60's today better take a sweater. LOL

I know your pain Hov.  I'm approaching 70 and if it wasn't for Ohio State and the site I'd be sitting in a chair by the pool.  I grew up with some pretty good Brown's teams and watched the Championship game in 1964 on tv. Then the Indians came so close a few times and then last year against the CUBS.  What bad luck!  The whole country and part of Northern Ohio was pulling for the Cubs. I retired to the Dallas area and I'm enjoying the 'Boys and my BUCKS.

When a 6'10" guy continues to gun 3's and makes less than 20%.  The coaches need to correct the player's shot selection, but they can't make the shot for him.  Same with foul shots, if we were a fair or average foul shooting team we would have won.  I fact we would of won maybe five or more games.  No talent or the coaching can't get the talent out?  Who solves the problem?  The program needs to be evaluated by someone not standing in the forest with no team bias.

Does it matter in the stats that one of your starters and some say the best player was out. How many assistant coaches help Thad make play decisions while the ball is in play? Does Thad shoot their foul shots? How many turnovers is affordable?  Thad cares about the players and the way the game is played.  If you want a better team then MAKE YOUR FREE THROWS AND STOP TURNING THE BALL OVER!

Time for me to go into hibernation.  Too much what if and to little data.  Plan to get up temporarily on signing day and back to sleep till Spring ball.

All y'all need to take your hands off the keyboard, step back and take a breath.  Look at the talent of the four head coaches in the playoffs.  They got there because they know what they're doing and how to fix things.  I hate to end the season this way but we'll be back.  The only people reading this are fans and players.  The coaches don't read this blog.  Sorry to bust your bubble elevenwarriors and fans.  Now is the time to go forward but positively.
