Comment 14 Feb 2015

he died from complications of blood clots

i will always remember that 2003 big ten tournament run where he carried us to 3 straight wins into the championship game…..

Comment 12 Feb 2015

PG - scoonie - would be conley but he was only here 1 season…..helped take osu to final four

SG - JJ - pure STUD…..big ten player of the year as a soph and junior…..upi national player of the year…..ask bobby knight who one of the best players he ever faced was, and JJ will be up there…..

SF - ET - villain was player of the year……his three to beat michigan in the big ten tourney will never be forgotten…..only downside was his NCAA tournament appearances

PF - sullinger - dude was buckeye through and through…..monster down low…..excellent skills and hands for a big man that we all took for granted…..something buckeye fans are craving to see these day

C - oden - even though he only played one season, who else are you gonna put here? terrance dials (big ten POY)  perhaps? bill robinson? kosta koufos????? byron mullens????? easy decision to go with greg 

honorable mention:

dennis hopson - scoring machine!

michael redd - scoring machine!

jay burson - heart!

conley - suprisingly the best pro out of them all

DAR - will probably be the best out of everyone listed, but to be determined…..sky is the limit

maybe chris jent made that much of a difference…..

Comment 10 Feb 2015

when you look back at the current senior class.....the true cream of the crop was laquinton ross....this guy was the only "scorer" in that 2011 class

shannon scott was the highest rated, but he was a true point guard out of high school

sam always had the athletic ability but (amazingly) probably hit his ceiling as a freshman

amir was always bashed for his effort in high school......but how could a 6'11" kid NOT be ranked high as a basketball player in high school????

for 3 solid years we saw shannon and sam struggle with their shot and did anyone really expect that to change this season just because they are seniors????

i knew the freshman would have to step up and be asked of to SCORE with the loss of ross......i think the biggest disappointment for me is anthony lee......preseason i was hoping for a consistent 6 points and 8 rebounds a contest, but this guy really lacks much basketball skill to be a solid big ten player

Comment 09 Feb 2015

he is definitely "danny manning-ing" this team

yea, this team has 4 veteran seniors who were actually ranked #2 as a recruiting class.....but we all know expectations are FAR from met

DAR is a stat sheet stuffer.....not just a scoring machine, ala redd

and this team is winning games.....due to the fact the younger freshman and loving are stepping their game up, but not being consistent enough

JJ, sully, oden, and conley had unbelievable supporting casts......DAR is running this show and making it look easy

matta will coach for however long his health lets him

he is in serious pain.....he can barely climb the ladder anymore and needs assistants whenever cutting down the nets after another big ten championship.....he hardly see him standing on the sidelines anymore......he's in his chair and has a noticeable "giddy up" in his step

the man can coach! he can win! and he can recruit!

he is a 20 win machine......and every year you can pretty much automatically put us in the field of 64

i was at osu from 1994-2000......prolly the worst stretch in osu bball history!!!!! student season tickets each year......matta is doing an excellent job......close to the best tenures as a coach in ohio state basketball history!

Comment 04 Feb 2015

i remember watching that all access ESPN had on osu camp in urban's first year with us.....

and bogard was the first freshman to get his black stripe taken off......i think this was days after his brother passed of cancer

dude went through alot before even stepping foot on the football field

best of luck to you kid

1992: simpson and macon were both mcdonald AAs....eaker was a top recruit (shot out antonio watson's tires).....derek anderson was the sleeper in that class.....and nate wilborne was a local high school all american......that entire class wiped out!

1996: stringer arrested for jumping on a police car off campus.....scott gradney and bosley were breaking into cars in on campus parking garages.....jim o'brien had a thing against stonerook (grades or attitude)......tate was rehabbing his knees i believe and wasn't medically cleared by osu doctors and he ended up playing in worthington summer league games.....JO caught wind and kicked him off the team.....coleman and singleton were the only two that stuck it out

can't believe OSU hasn't built a statue of THAD yet?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!

Comment 26 Feb 2014

if memory serves me correctly...i believe the michigan coaches were asking the scorers' table to review and Matta "agreed" and was also telling them to look all they want....don't mess with Matta in March!
