Tress early season (non-marquee) games were the worst. He would show absolutely nothing offensively and just let the superior OSU defense and punting win the game. Ugh. Sometimes I wanted to take a drill to my temple.

I'll forever by an 11W reader and will happily continue to pay for 12W. I know this site will continue to provide good content. Complete faith on my part. 

But...

I also understand those who do have doubts and are restless because of the recruiting info void. Those of us who are diehard loyals to the end need to remember that no website is entitled to anyone's time. Just because this is a free site doesn't mean that people shouldn't expect good content. If 11W wants to stay successful and keep traffic, they'll move quickly to reestablish the recruiting news flow. Otherwise, visitors will move on. It's the way any market works, free sports sites included. Jason knows this and that's partly why the staff has never rested on their laurels. Take it easy on the visitors who are panicking a bit. Let 11W's work going forward speak for them.

I think Buckeye fans need to decide what they want...

Do you want a top 3 program that gets championships, sends a lot of players to the draft, has great national exposure, and does fantastic things like real-life Wednesdays, but occasionally rubs an Ohio player the wrong way

or

Do you want a top 20 program that does well, but is not elite, sends a couple kids to the NFL, puts Ohio kids first because of where they grew up, and is essentially notre dame.

What advantage (fix) was that? Also, Jordan won when he finally had a completely competent team. He had the slight misfortune of coming into the league when the Celtics, Sixers, Lakers, and Pistons were already established. The Bulls played catch up for the first 5-6 years Jordan was there. Not to mention he was injured for one of those seasons.

All of those Hall of Famers were pay their prime? Half of those guys came in at the same time or after Jordan. Or were in their primes. The only ones you can say were past their primes when Jordan came in the league are maybe Dantley, Kareem (debatable), Moses Malone, and Walton. 

So, the early to mid 90's were awful at basketball? How do you figure?

Jordan dominated in the best era of basketball, early 80's to mid-90's, before the league over-expanded and the talent level on each team was watered down. Also, look at the Hall-of-Famers who he had to contend with in his prime: Magic, Bird, Dr. J, Moses Malone, Kareem, Worthy, Barkley, Malone, Stockton, Drexler, Olajuwon, Robinson, Shaq, Isaiah, Ewing, Payton, Reggie Miller, Dantley, Dumars, Dominique, McHale, Walton. I mean, Good Lord. How much of the top 50 of all-time is represented there. Another fun activity, how much of that list never won a title because they were in the same era as Jordan?

He also was dominant offensively and defensively. He could easily go off for 40 and lock down the other team's best scorer. Could he fill up the stat sheet like Big O? Easy, see the end of the of the '89 season when he was forced to play PG for the Bulls and recorded 10 triple-doubles from March 13th to April 14th. Just look at his '88 season... he shot .535, averaged 35 per game (led the league) and won the defensive player of the year. In the most competitive era of basketball. He is the only guard ever to record 200+ steals and 100+ blocks in a season, and did it twice (the only other players to do it were Pippen and Olajuwon). And, don't forget, he didn't have the benefits of the panzy foul rules that they have today.

If 16 teams is inevitable, the Big Ten needs to strike first. I'd be fine with any of Texas, UNC, Oklahoma, Virginia, Va Tech. As said above, the Big 12 should be canabalized by all. Take the best teams while we can. The others provide recruiting access and decent institutions (yes, UNC is still a great academic school despite their recent issues).

Him behind that line... I don't think it could have worked out better for him.

Basically my thoughts exactly, word for word. When the pick went in, I was thinking Doctson.
