Omg, music to my ears.

All you can ask really is that a coach responds & tries to correct the mistakes made...   I concede to Matta, and shrug my shoulders in support.  I love OSU basketball, and I really like Matta, regardless of my critique.

WELCOME HOME JENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NFL skills....     cooking?  zero!      Running- uh 4.39.     I guess these clowns have to say something negative..  shouldn't be relevant... or correlated somehow?!

So surprised on Webb & Glover/Williams moved to safety.   I guess I should consider it Nickel,safety, then emergency corner.  Me thinks Smith & Hooker will have those two spots on lock down come fall.  Hooker is showing to be beastlike, and I already know that Smith is a manimal.  Webb & Glover is just gravy.

I really wish I could understand Matta's coaching, recruiting, or schemes more than on the surface level...  Why?  Wait, we already have two pg's, why would we take a 3rd?  Then you take his remarks about "playing immediately", which has me cringing also since all of you guys see the same trend with previous recruits, hell all of them were playing immediately, yet only one felt like they were getting what Matta was promising.

Why would we recruit back to back PGs?!   Oh, only if Lyle was moving to the two, but since Matta never talks about WTF he's doing over there....we are left to guessing....  about everything really....

I about crapped my pants on first glance.  My first thought was "oh God" Diop is transferring...  Love this kid, we need him to be the foundation!

My second thought is Grandstaff isn't good enough for OSU & Matta, but apparently good enough to play for a final four highly ranked OU... 

Next, "somewhat disappointing"?  Tim your always sunny outlook towards bball cracks me up.

And lastly, if one of your own players is surprised and didn't see this coming....Then this TOTALLY contradicts what Matta's been spewing....

Get your team together Matta or get the **** gone.

Funny- his lack of strong downfield throwing is exactly what came to my mind after the game.  And no, a 50 yd pass from one, is not the same 50 yd pass from another.  Touch, velocity, accuracy, & timing are all very different.

However, I came away thinking that he is CLEARLY the #2 QB moving forward.  Intelligent, accurate, touch, toughness and with time his arm strength should continue to improve.

Outstanding kid!

Weber.  Williams has some body work to do...  Briefly, in what little time I've watched (havn't watched 2nd half), he really appeared to run upright- for being a short dude this really caught me off guard?

Both appeared a little smaller than what I had thought...   Like I said, both are really young & have some time to spend in Mick's dojo.

At this moment Weber appeared to be more powerful, quicker, decisive, explosive....

Good call brother.  Meaningful minutes & shots for Foster.

I would still contend he is the outlier & not the rule..   Again, i'm not trying to hate on the kid, more merely bothered that the staff seems to be hitting on recruits (difference makers/blue chips) with less & less frequency every year...
