Check that 1-6!! I must have been shooting a free throw there.....
Another positive note (not) is that if the Nebraska defender does not fall down we are 1-5. Hard to watch this team for most of the last 3-4 yrs and like many of you I do not hardly get upset anymore!
97 I know what you mean. Would love to see those combos on the offensive end of the floor. Inside game of TT with Potter knocking down 3's. The problem may be is that one of those guys would have to check a 4 man on the other team. Not sure that would work with the foul issues our bigs have in a man to man D already.
From the press I have read on Francis why would OSU not yet offered him?
Play hard, rebound, limit turnovers and make 46% of your 3 balls and the game gets easier from start to finish.
Scoonie hits the nail on the head, leadership as that was exactly what he was for OSU. Like I said in a post a week or so ago, replace any player on this team other than TT and maybe Lyle with Scoonie and this thing looks much better.
Way to get me pumped up early in the am. Unfortunately we do not have any of those names, Craft etc, on this team. Will be interesting to see how local kid Nick Ward plays.
Well said PC. Throwing those kids under the bus when he and his coaches brought them in here was not only poor but a sign that a coach that knows the seat is hot already.
No panic!! We was 83% from free throw line tonight!!
Loving was not McDonalds All American
I understand the frustration but Thad stepping down midseason would accomplish what? This is Jent's offense. These coaches and players need to finish the season and then....... Any replacement we need here at OSU is coaching a team at another school.
Lets hope that this coach and these kids make it through the year with quitting/getting fired and put some positive games together. Even if your in the can Thad camp there is nothing good to come out of a midseason program blowup.
IMO if we could trade any starter on this team except for TT for a Scoonie Penn type PG then we are not having these discussions about changing coaches and we have maybe 2 loses. Leadership and organization on the floor is severely lacking.
What was worse than the bucks execution the first 15 minutes of the game and the last 4??? THE FREAKING ANNOUNCERS!!!! These guys were well beyond sucking. I dont even have a word for it. Somebody help me.out here!!
I think they will be there with a chance at the end IF they dont lose the concentration on either end of the court for those 5 minute stretches that put them behind by 10 or 12 points.
2 positives--- Tyquan Lewis coming back and IU is 0-3 in B1G.
And the hits just keep coming!!!!
Please tell me that was not the urgency nor the shot that we wanted at the end of the game from the coaches. They cannot string together enough positive offensive or defensive possensions throughout the game. They need to get better during the game so they don't need to win it or lose it at the end.
I was REALLY hoping a change to Jent running an offense would make a difference but to this point it has not. Lots of issues defensively also. Bottom line, this coaching staff has this season to make it look like they are getting better/progressing. If at years end we have the same look, I would a nervous coach.
A poor first half, two huge three's by Illinois late, and poor execution at the end with the ball never being reversed and everyone standing around. The wrong people taking threes in the last 4 mins. Same old story.
This is not acceptable at all. Fire Thad!!! LOL. No wait that doesnt come until about 9pm tonight.
BD agreed!. Just trying REAL hard to be positive until we see them play a few conference games.
Urban C must have ESP thats what I have been thinking since the season started. Except for Thompson and maybe Tate (sometimes) these guys games are the same. Disappointing. For fans players and coaches. 4 out of next 6 on the road with MSU and Purdue at home. We shall know where this team sits by third week in January.
We are going to have a good idea where this team is going by late January. 4 of the first 6 B1G games are on the road with Purdue and Michigan st as home games.
I was hoping Jent would make the offense look like they know what they want to do. But not so much so far anyway. Maybe if the offense comes alive Thad has another year or two in him then Jent takes over. But at this point you cant hire Jent with one year under his belt. Chris Mack, Archie Miller, Gregg Marshall. Just a few names.
Kinda hard to believe Thad had this program rockin at one point and now to fall on hard times is perplexing. Cant think he forgot how this thing works. I think his big down fall is recruiting. We do not have many, if any, tough gym rat kids.
