Those are the only places that your 6'9 center and 6'4 PF can play at this point in their careers/development.
No DV's on your Tate comments they are spot on. I said when he was a freshman that IF he develops a consistant jump shot/3 pt and can make free throws he will be a feared player in this league. Not there yet! What you cant deny is his effort and hustle and his post moves. On a good team he is a starter but option 3,4 or 5. I still want him on my team.
I will be skeptical until I see him play against B1G teams but a "tough little point guard" is what this program has needed since Russ and Craft left. Hope he is a diamond in the rough.
It would seem that very soon TTUN would be back on the home and home rotation and you would get your wish. Love beating them even if is the intramural teams!!
Zimmy. Great point. Our guys bitching about the calls made against them has bothered me all year. The call was made, right or wrong just move on. In 53 yrs I have not seen the zebras change a call because a player or coach bitched about it.
Ugly ass win but we will take it.
Would someone please make sure Lyle has the Euro league phone number? My rant for the night!!
No really he should not be at point guard. Jackson you say? Well he has a ways to go yet to be the point this team sorely needs.
BD:My interest in reading about this team somewhat resembles the saturday evening effort on the court.
Naaa not really. I am hooked on this team no matter who is playing or coaching. But it is taking a year or two off my life and that I am upset about!
Well said fullback. I am as frustrated as anyone about how these team plays but these attacks personally on these kids in public are not needed. Why does everyone think this player or that player has to be a leader? Hello! ML was never going to be one. That was known after his soph season. Look for someone else to be that person. No leaders have been recruited to this team in several years.
12 turnovers???? Sure seemed like 20. I know it will not happen but Lyle and Loving need to come off the bench for awhile.
Another performance/effort that may get coach canned. Every game is a job interview at this point.
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!!
