What tech school do these AD's and school presidents attend that they learn the "skill" to continue to try and tell us it's not about the money?
Welcome Austin: we look forward to you becoming a "Threebler". Go get Mickey back in the fold or Esa and or Bragg.
Good We have the badgers at home. Not a bad schedule at all to be there for the league championship in March.
UConn!!! And just two days ago many were griping about our non conference schedule. I assume this game is not a part of the Dave Gavitt basketball classic that the B1G was getting involved in????
As much as I would like to see a better non conference schedule it isn't going to happen as long as there is this thing called a budget that Gene Smith needs to make work each year. You cannot have big names for a bunch of non conference games as they require a return trip to there place next year and then there is not enough home games to cash flow the budget. Not sure why this is a big discussion every year.
I see Ryan put Sammy Watkins out of the game last night with a hit. We needed that one in January.
Better get them out in deeper water or they're knees and elbows will rub the coral!!!! Ha ha
Sounds like it might be hard to keep KBD out of starting lineup. Nice numbers for Tate yesterday- as he's been re-habing that shoulder. 17 turnovers not good but given the competition I imagine the game turned into "barn ball". I am ready for the season to start but Urban hasn't even ran his team out there yet! Keep the roundball info coming- can't get enough.
Good for him. I think he has been thinking about this day almost since got to OSU and maybe before. Maybe that's why he looked disinterested at times. He got his pro contract and Thad got an open roster spot to fill with another player and we move on. Everyone should be happier.
He's right behind Thad- barely see him.
Dave Richardson- strength and conditioning coach.
Nice to see new guys Lee and Diop have solid rebound numbers as well as their point production. Kam starting is nice to see also. 10 rebounds for Trey!!! Are you serious? Go get em young man! The new faces just might take over team this year---and that might not be a bad thing.
Great piece. Can't get enough old Woody recruiting stories and this one is awesome. Wonder how many of us could say no to Woody with his hand at our chin standing in front of us? I couldn't!!
Excellent points YRRO. I don't want to see Fick get canned--what I want to see is the D allowing about 12 points a game like Heacock's defenses did numerous years.
Man I hope all of Fick's positive words about changes in attitudes and approaches play out for the good like we are being lead to believe. I simply don't know if I can watch 5-600 yards of offense against them much longer. Guess we will know what we have in a defense this year by the time we head to East Lansing.
Him and Gee mishandled the Tressell situation but he's did a good job since then. Don't need any more turmoil in this athletic department at this point. We need championships.
This waiver had little to no chance of being approved and Thompson and Thad new full well it would not be but hey they took a shot. With Lee added to the mix we hopefully will not need him this year.
Good ones but you have to put the Keith Byars vs Illinois and losing a shoe game in their somewhere. Maybe I was just real wasted but it was my favorite!!
Thad is lining up some good competition for the future. Maybe some people will get off his butt for soft schedules.
I will second the old comment--- Thad is the right man for this job and hopefully he stays put- I think he will. Only thing I want to see him do is recruit a three point shooting 5 man like our buddy Bo Ryan has every year.
I would like to see Thad keep all of Ohio's talent home also but Ohio kids alone will not consistantly keep you at the top of the league and get you deep in tourney. He has missed on some in state talent the last few years, no doubt on that point. And to make that fact more glaring is that our senior class this year-including Q which is gone- are all out of state. And as much as I hate to say it their progress as players hasn't been what we all expected nor what Thad expected- at least to this point in their careers. I really hope that changes this year.
It really stinks that just as Jamal was starting make an impact for this team he gets the boot. Akron is getting a player that is ready to start. Need Giddens to become a buckeye today-- will be an important piece for future of Thad's team.
An "Ohio Series" would be great but what is the chance that eight teams can find the same days available in their schedule and who would buy tickets to see the mid majors play each other. Now a UC, UD, OSU, Xavier two day event would be a hot ticket.
I have to say I was a little rough on Q yesterday in my comments. I hope he really does make it somewhere in pro hoops. He's still an ex-buckeye and want to see him succeed no matter we think of his decision to leave the program now. He give OSU hoops fans some good games and big shots in the last two years. Lets be good with that and move on- him with a pro career and OSU fans with the new kids coming in.
I am not sure it mattered when Q came out, he still will not get drafted. He has always thought he was a better player than he really is. Remember Twitter rant about no playing time when he was a frosh? This was his big shot to make the league and he shows up as fattest one there? Better find the Rosetta Stone section at bookstore Q.
