How can this team expect to win regardless of offensive/defensive scheme if they are that abysmal at the charity stripe? Coach Matta must be ripping out his hair having to face this handicap. At this level of basketball, I can't understand how a player doesn't concentrate on that part of his game on their own time, if necessary. I know they are a young team, but this must be corrected asap. Horrid team free throw shooting is costing them wins.
Epic day!!!! :)))
This team is very athletic, but they still have trouble with the basics. They had better learn how to box out in the paint if they want to go anywhere this year. It was embarrassing watching Indiana dominant in the first half. That was as much as I could stomach. They're learning though and hopefully by tournament time, they'll be ready for the big stage.
Total class act! I always wondered if we would ever see him throw the football again as a Buckeye. It was sad that we didn't get that chance. Hopefully we will see it when he is playing on the next level. Some lucky team is going to get an exceptional athlete/player, but an even better leader/man. Thanks for all the great memories Braxton. We will all miss not seeing you play for the Buckeyes!
"If you have two quarterbacks, you have no quarterbacks." Unfortunately, Cardale Jones is just a different quarterback without Devin Smith. His mechanicals are all over the place and it shows much more this year since he can't just throw it deep to Devin.
You know what they say about assuming....
I hate to bang on an easy target like Amir Williams, but I cannot help it. How can someone be 7 feet tall and play that lathargically his whole career? Just show some energy and foul out due to effort. Just show Thad something for heavens sake. Next year will be so nice without him. It's 4 on 5 basketball when he is on the court. I'm sorry Amir, I pray that you have put more effort into your studies so that you can be successful in the game of life.
The stipends have to be regulated and equal. What a slippery slope they're going to ski down with this...
They should have to wear one of those helmets until they win something, like their division. Setting the bar low Brownies...
Lack of free throw shooting ability is just pure laziness at the collegiate level. I promise you, if you shoot 100 free throws a day after practice, you'll get better by default. Separately, this team has no inside game and that squarely rests on the weak shoulders of Amir Williams. Coach Matta put a lot of his eggs in that bottomless basket, unfortunately.
I'm now residing in sunny California and these games are early. At least I can get the games. Where is this "jamming the receiver at the line" cornerback play we are supposedly doing? I haven't seen it yet. Not too impressed with the red zone offense lately. I suppose there is always something to complain about though.
I think they can do it. JT is gonna be just fine and the secondary is going to remind us of what it was like to lean on the defense. They can use the disrespect they are enduring due to Braxton's injury to their advantage and I think they will. Go Bucks!
^^^ this ^^^
Let's go Barrett and Jones. Get it together. You guys can run this offense. Use that stable of offensive
weapons you have around you. Get well Brax!
Nah,... I'm pretty sure he's all Buckeye.
Nuttybuckeye,...it's the woosification of America. By the way, Tiger Woods has a sex addiction according to the "medical community", does anybody REALLY believe that? He was more like an opportunist. Furthermore, alcohol is allowed to destroy lives because the Government rakes in tax dollars from it. Abuse of alcohol is no better than anynother drug imo.
I hope Sprinkle gets the help he needs. I don't think he will be on the roster if the charges stick. He made some poor decisions and maybe poor decisions are in and of itself a disease.
What's press coverage? Is that some new technique? I don't think I've seen that, but I remember screaming at the television for something like that for at least the last 5 years. :/
If you shoot 100 freee throws after every practice over your career, won't you get better by default? I'm not sure what is going on with these players, but I'm almost certain that free throws were not a priority this past season. Pathetic really.
As far as Amir is concerned, II'd be embarrassed being that soft under the basket at 7 feet tall. I'm begging to have someone transfer in to the program that can take over the 5 spot. Maybe a true freshman can do it. Thad has to be so disappointed. He HAS to fix that problem.
An Arachnoid cyst is in the area of spinal cord tissues. Anyone can understand why he waited. Sounds like he had a successful procedure. Heal up coach.
