99.99999% of the time I agree with you Rosenbuck, but his career or lack of has gotten out of hand. He may be the only player in my adult life that I have felt this way about. I try to check myself on the negativity, then I watch him play, and its back
Duke has also lost in the first round of the tournament a few times the past few years, which is where success is gauged
WHO is the basketball Meyer? Tell me that...who are we going to go get? Shaka Smart? I can't think of anyone else who is a for sure, slam dunk, 100% upgrade, and I'm not even sure the havoc style would work night in and night out with the caliber of players in the Big 10.
And in all honesty, if Matta got forced out or however you want to term it, who would want to come here? After all he's done in ten years, to be put out like that? I wouldn't touch the job if I knew 2 final 4's, multiple sweet 16s and multiple B1G championships weren't enough to keep me around
Not sure where I said nobody else could do it....simply Matta has done a pretty damn good job. Also, Taylor was the only one who can say he had the same success as Matta, seeing as how Matta is about to pass the legend in overall wins. Correct me if I'm wrong, but Williams never took us to the final 4, and the only time Obrien did, it was later taken away. I think its fair to say Matta has his flaws (seemingly questionable development-even though typically in college bball seniors aren't great for anyone-thats why they're still in school as seniors, and rotation inconsistencies), but its is absolutely INSANE to suggest that he needs to go. This isn't UNC or Duke or Kentucky, he's turned OSU into an almost yearly top 10 caliber team. Its hard to be REALLY good every single year. You can't find a single program that has been.
uhhhhh....do you remember what ohio state basketball was compared to what it is? we've had two "rough" years. Kentucky went to the NIT and lost to Robert Morris 2 years ago. They should've gotten rid of Calipari
Basketball isn't football. you have a roster of 12 that you are stuck with, not 85. The compeition level is different. Things have to work out

I know there has been a lot of talk about the seniors being disappointing, which is true. However, I'd argue that Sam and Shannon bring a lot of energy to the table and are valuable, especially when they decide to be aggressive offensively. They both are plus defenders as well. I just wish Thad would throw in the towel with the centers. We lose nothing when we go small. D'Angelo is our leading rebounder. Amir was so slow on showing on ball screens that Michigans no body big guys were wide open. Just go small and sit the bigs on the bench, maybe give Lee some spot minutes or adjust if someone is killing us. Play the rest of the guys, play fast, play aggressive. Tate plays bigger than the bigs do anyway, which makes me sad.
I wanted Thad to go small so bad Sunday and I feel like he finally did too late. I'd rather watch someones 7 footer go nuts against our guys out there scrambling their butts off than Amir slow rotating and getting dunked on anyway. I really don't feel like its appropriate to give up on this team...pieces are there still and sometimes they show it
switch 3 and 4
Lets take the approach that we would want people to take with Buckeye athletes. It appears that this may have been a misunderstanding and person having a bad day who overreacted to people who maybe seemed rude....
There are at least 2 sides to every story.
We havent really been down double digits in about a month (1/22 @ Northwestern). And I think the missing foul shots doesn't have much to do with being disinterested lol. Its amazing how much different peoples attitudes would've been if we didnt lose on a buzzer beater Saturday.
Also, something tells me they weren't excited to get off the floor with an L to Dayton. Last years team played extremely hard on defense all damn year (were near the top in just about every metric) and were just extremely offensively challenged. Just because a team loses doesn't mean they are "disinterested"
Noah Brown fits in here somewhere
When I see people tweet I think, hey he's 16 years old and wants a twitter like the rest of his friends.
Its so impressive when kids are able to keep level heads. Its crazy to think that these 16 year old kids face all this public scrutiny for decisions that most people have a hard time with, without the added pressure of performing athletically. Good for him
I don't know how I feel about the Drayton/Weber thing. If there was no offer, I guess I find it hard to believe that Drayton is supposed to say "Hey Mike, I interviewed for the Bears RB job, don't really think I got it, but just wanted to let you know I interviewed". But I don't know, certainly a little sketchier than I'd like. I think you'll be happy here regardless Mike!!
How about a pipe dream RBs coach....Mo Clarrett? I know I know, never coached, etc, etc, but just thinking out loud. Who better to learn from both on the field, and experiences off.
Don't care as long as we're there! (and i certainly won't care if we aren't)
I think this can be edited to something like: Andrew Luck sure made a terrible program dominate in the Pac.
Listen man, until a kid comes out and talks about how Urban forced him out wrongly, I think we should chill
Until a kid comes out and says "Urban forced me out" I'm going to assume there is nothing to see here. There have been plenty of kids that have moved along for various reasons (injuries, discipline, lack of PT, just not fitting in, etc) and to my knowledge, none of them have said anything regarding Urban and his practices of recruiting being the reason why
I think if Thad plays it right and rotates these 3 constantly, i.e. no more than a TV timeout of PT at once then we can piece it together. They all are basically the same as far as production goes.
