Flip-flopping?  I can't remember when I had any positive comments about the BB team.  I usually don't post about them.

Also, I don't generalize and pre-judge with using terms like "everyone" to describe commenters whose opinions I disagree with.  That would seem like preaching.

To me, the basketball Buckeyes are becoming more like other OSU sports teams.  I don't watch them but I always hope they do well.  I turned this game off five times but, like a masochist, I kept turning it back on, hoping for a pull-away...to the bitter end.

If consistent half empty home courts and non-national broadcasts aren't subtly convincing you of the downturn, maybe nothing will.

Also, I didn't read in the commenting policy that every comment must be from behind rose scarlet colored glasses.

Apparently you haven't realized that Calipari isn't a good coach.  He was mediocre, at best, until he hit a home run recruit in Rose and the one and done rule came along.  He just so happened to get the UK gig and has maximized the "one-complete-semester" rule at a blue blood.  If anything, he's underperformed with the number of 5* recruits that have played there.  

In comparison, coach K has done relatively well with his one-and-done talent...not that I'm advocating for him to come to OSU, which would never happen.

If expecting a win against an inferior, 2-5 team, from a no-name conference makes me a fair weather fan, consider me guilty.

I don't always expect a win but I do expect a competitive, "winning" effort.  These Buckeyes don't have it and it's becoming more and more painfully obvious that they're never going to have it with the current coach.

Although I hope a change occurs, I just wonder how much Matta's disability has affected his ability to recruit, coach, etc.  Like him, I had failed back surgery (multilevel fusion) and now have permanent radiculopathy and radicular pain.  No way I could go hard at anything like I did just a few years ago and I'm in my mid-40s.

Don't care about the DVs.  The team has no scheme, no imagination, no ability to produce points, can't play defense, etc.  Relying on NBA-esque dribble-drives when you don't have the talent to finish is a recipe for disaster.  Maybe that's part of the reason the Schott seems to be emptier and emptier each year.  I'm done watching Matta.  Call me when a new coach is hired because I'm finished with the return of the Randy Ayers era.
