I agree 100% on the lack of touches for Thomas...the guy catches anything close to him.
But, if you are going to be a Champion, you have to put "most of those balls" not "just a lot of those balls" on the money. Cardale has been given the opportunity to suceed, I hope he can make it pay off for the Bucks.
Chubb is averaging 17.75 carries, Fournette 24.3 and Zeke is at 19.25 carries...I think Coach Meyer has this right where it should be with the competition they are playing. Keep him fresh as possible for the end run.
I have been a big time JT believer through the whole off season but I just can't get over how well the Bucks played against two of the toughest teams they faced all season...along with the ass whippin they gave the Badgers. How do you not start Cardale??? I guess that is why Urban is getting paid the big bucks. Gonna be fun to follow.
#1 Hawk, #2 Ginn, #3 Little Animal
Grey01...you nailed it
Mitchell may surprise a lot of people next year...dude is an excellent passer
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.
We will see what DRuss is made of tomorrow, I feel very confident and think the seniors will feed off him!! Go Bucks!!!
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.
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.
