I'm just glad the first poster called that out.

When did I make a "negative unformulated" opinion.  It is undeniable that this program has been mediocre for 3 years and under-performed in seasons prior even then the talent was elite.  I would ask anyone who thinks the critiques of the B-ball program are unfounded or unformulated would accept this level of performance year in and year out from our football program?  

And don't give me this is a football school nonsense, OSU has shown many times in the past you can do both.

You are spot on.  How many of our marquee games have we even showed up for?  Let alone win?   The UK game is the aberration, not the pattern.

I love how anyone who raises concerns about the direction of this program, which are legitimate mind you, are considered "fair weather" fans. This program hasn't accomplished anything in the last three years even with Aaron Craft as a senior and one of the best freshmen we've ever had.

As an OSU bball fan for many decades spanning the Ayers and O'Brien eras I have long been a Thad Matta fan, but I have to admit the lack of development, the consistent FT shooting woes, and the general malaise of late really have me questioning whether he is still the man for the job. Hate to say it, really.

Never have quite grasped the meaning of "get dumped then, ...."  

In fact, there could probably be a whole different thread for a DJ-dictionary!

For all the good vibes this week, and the overall amazing recruiting OSU has done, to keep missing out on these guys (understanding all the hurdles) despite our GLARING need is a real area of concern, IMO

The past doesn't dictate future actions, but it sure does help in the interpretation of those actions when information is incomplete, which it is here. I don't think you have any clue why OSU suddenly stopped recruiting him. However, based on past behavior and the sudden change it makes more sense to explain that something happened or information was received to make OSU change their opinion of him.
