This senior class has been very disappointing. None of the 4 ever significantly got better. Scott was a solid PG but could never develop any kind of jump shot. Thompson was always an athletic freak but really stayed the same from soph-sen year. And Williams and Mcdonald didn't develop any post game whatsoever. Mcdonald because he just wasn't very talented but Amir was because of his attitude. He didn't really care if he got better or not.

And while I am disappointed on how this team finished the year, Thad Matta is the all time wins leader here and wer have to remember where OSU bball was prior to his arrival. Thad has taken OSU bball to 9 tourney apps, 5 reg season titles, 4 Big Ten tourney titles, and has won 20+ games every season since arriving. While I'll be glad when this frustrating year is over we really need to appreciate how good we all have it with our major sports teams. I mean hell, wrestling just won a Big Ten title! Looking forward to next year with Tate, Loving, Kam, Bell, T Thompson, and all the new 2015 recruits.

And one last thing. Lets remember that TTUN both football and basketball teams both failed to achieve a winning record this season while we won a National Championship in football and our basketball team will be going dancing for the 7th straight year :)

What is the coaching staff's priority in terms of recruiting a 2016 QB? Would their board go 1. Guarantano, 2. Haskins, 3. Wallace, 4. Gaines? or would they have a different board?

Yea it's not a knock on Sully he just ran into a buzzsaw on the block. Oden was a whole other level defensively and Lucas is a HOF. I do not agree with Funderburk at all when were talking all time. Diebler needs some consideration at the wing as well and also having a David Lighty that could match up with anyone from 1-4 defensively. Then obviously ET and Russell would be great picks as well.

As another Tigers fan I would switch KC and Minn. Losing Shields and Butler will hurt them and I'm not sure if Volquez can fill that gap. I'm excited to see the lineup of a healthy Kinsler, Victor, Miggy, JD, and Cespedes but how well they replace the production of Scherzer and Porcello will determine whether they win the central again. JV is gonna have to get back to the JV of old, Simon will have to have a better year than last, and the pen will have to improve drastically. Now the defense will greatly improve with Iglasias back at SS and Nick C in his 2nd year. But that rotation the Tribe has is nasty. If they improve the defense and more production from anyone other than brantley, they are my pick to win the central.

The lack of a consistant low post scorer and awful FT % are two huge problems offensively. OSU is a big time jump shooting team. Once Tate was put in the starting lineup and getting more min is when this team started playing better. And outside of Russell and Loving, individually each player is an average or below avg FG% shooter. Combine that with the fact OSU is 228th in the nation (yes I looked it up) in FT%, you are going to have close losses and trouble closing games. 5-13 FTs against Sparty is simply unacceptable. You are going to have off games shooting but FT shooting should never be that poor. Also when your SG is the leading rebounder, that is a stat you dont want to see either

Actually pretty much every red shirt scUM player in the recruiting classes 2004-2006 already achieved that.
