Who that would come to OSU would you replace him with??? Not trying to be a smart ass but I really wonder who it is that some people want to come in and do a better job than Coach Matta.
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!!!
4 of the top 12 is just sick on any list...Go Urban go
I think if he is the kind of kid that feeds on competition he will be a Buckeye...if not, well good luck wherever he ends up. I hope he ends up a Buckeye as he seems to be a freak athlete and certainly could play another position if QB does not work out.
Oh he is a very capable basketball player with a serious lack of desire or energy. It is very painful to watch him move on a basketball floor...if only they could inject some of Tate's energy into him now that would be unstoppable.
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.
Just my opinion, but yes, that list won't cut it. What have any of them done that is so much better then Thad's resume.
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!!!!
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!!!!
188.5 cause I am guessing someone already took 188 and 189
I do not pay much attention to pro football... can anyone speculate on why San Fran was so ready to dump Harbaugh. As great as everyone is saying he is you would have thought they would have made a play to keep him.
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
And it cost Hyde a Heisman trophy...think about that JT...lose the chick
Those asshats losing every game would be like winning the largest lottery jackpot ever!!! Screw blue
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.
Hoke trying to do a Bosa shrug...funny shit
Why would you give it to him over Anderson...what is the logic? They always say that he does more with less..well isn't recruiting part of coaching and Meyer and Anderson have recruited better and put better teams on the field so where is the logic. I know Kill has a lot to deal with health wise but why should two coaches that have done a better job not be rewarded ahead of him?
I would think a couple of short safe passes mixed in with a couple qb keepers to let him get some rhythm and get the juices flowing...confidence can take Cardale and the Bucks a long way.
I partially agree with you... last year has zero bearing on this year but undefeated this year has some clout. Maybe the committee is telling everyone that they need to quit scheduling cupcakes. Buckeyes included
Bama will cruise as they smell blood....Oregon will destroy Arizona...Tcu will crush Iowa St. and Florida St. will win ugly again. OSU will jump Florida St. after a convincing win against Wiscy.. Dumbo Fisher will blow a gasket and Jamies will try to steal the trophy..
