This team just lacked toughness and attitude but they were a great bunch of kids. Tate was really the only one that played with those traits. Tate and Diop should fit in nicely with next years squad...Loving is just a hard guy to figure out...moments of greatness then moments of not being interested. I think next years squad will be fun to watch.

I think this is obviously just a mediocre team on the road and a very good team at home. We see them play great games at the Schott when they are in their comfort zone but when they hit the road the lid goes on the basket...especially for the seniors. It would be interesting to see the stats for home and away. I still think this team can go on a run in the tourny if they can just get there.

Anytime you have a player like Russell you have a chance to make a run. But with no stopper in the middle it will be a short run. I really think this team will make the tournament as they are very good on the home floor and the remaining schedule is favorable. I will always hold out hope and have all the faith in the world in Matta. Go Bucks!!!

Maybe they would throw it to him more if he would catch it...really he is a great kid that just has not developed offensively and lacks the desire to rebound. I just can't imagine that someone on the coaching staff could not break him from catching the ball at his chest then bringing it down to his knees before going up for a shot. How can you be 6'-10", athletic/ strong and not be able dominate the boards. I do agree that the Bucks are a better team with him but that just shows how lacking they are on the front line.

I respectfully disagree OP Buck,  I thought Scott set the tone for the Iowa game when he came out and immediately threw a couple of awful passes. You cannot have the senior point guard start games with a lack of intensity especially on the road against a team that just beat you at home. How can Sam take one of the sweetest passes you will see from Russell and lazily lay it up. If Thompson takes the pass and throws it down with authority maybe he could have jump started the team.   Where is the damn fire in these seniors?

I believe Matta will get it done in time. When he had Oden and Conley that was a perfect storm with Florida having all the returning starters. Any other year but that year and he wins it all with that team. Amir has a bunch of potential but nothing Thad does seems to get him going...I think he is just one of those players that will never develop no matter what the coaches do. Who would you take over Matta that is going to come to OSU? I will go with Matta all day long!!!

Pizza, wings, mini beers (for scores) and miller lite...here is to hoping I feel like shit tomorrow at work from too many shots!!!!

Comment 12 Jan 2015

I believe I heard Kevin Carter pick the Bucks on one show and the Ducks on another...I guess that is one way of covering your ass. Go Bucks!!!!

Comment 10 Dec 2014

It is McMillan for me...he seems like an upper classmen already....very mature for a freshman. He will be a great one before he is done at OSU

Comment 09 Dec 2014

Plain and simple no matter what your income is why do colleges, networks and whoever else get to make billions off these college kids and not have to spend pennies to pay for these kid's families to go to the games. It is a crime and plain ass thievery.

Wisky did not have any problem rubbing it in Minnesota"s face the week before...so I had no problem seeing them so dejected this week. It is just part of the game as we have had our share of heartbreak.
