I think Urban has earned our trust when it comes to recruiting...

Our coaching staff is either terrible at identifying talent or terrible at developing it. Either way, it is unacceptable.

They have gotten tougher to watch every year since the 2011-12 season. Pretty much a five season slide and there is no indication that next year will be any better. So, we may be looking at the '18-'19 season before we are able to compete for a B1G title again. And even that is a stretch. They will be pretty young again in '18 and the upper class men will be the elder Wesson, Funderburk, Bell, Jackson, and Potter. That isn't very promising from my vantage point.... 

Granted, one blue-chip recruit can significantly alter a team's season (see: D. Russell). But it doesn't look like we have any of those coming our way in the next couple of years unless Thad can pull off a surprise. 

Strange, unfortunate time for Ohio State basketball.

Potter, Wesson, Jackson, Funderburk, Lyle, Giddens, Grandstaff, Harris, Mitchell, Russell, Bates-Diop, Tate, Bell, Loving, Williams, Della-Valle, Scott, Williams, McDonald, Ross, Thompson.. 

The jury is still out on Potter, Wesson, Jackson, and Funderburk but which of those guys besides Russell are/were All-B1G type of players? Even with the freshman, only Potter really contributes and he will have to get much, much better to be an All-B1G player. My question is who is in charge of recruiting? I know identifying talent isn't an easy job but good lord...

Well, you could try playing good defense which would have not allowed him to be wide open on the block in the first place... Instead the defender was ball watching, completely lost his mark, and the guy gets wide open for a lay up. 

And if Thompson makes a free throw and doesn't commit a dumb foul, OSU wins. Those are things that Ohio State could have done- things well within their power- that would have overcome the poor officiating and won them that game.

Refs are a part of the game. You need to be smart enough to adapt to how they call the game or rise above it. This team has lost games like this several times over the past three years so to blame the refs is a major cop out. It's what happens when you have no leadership and players with very low basketball IQ. Those things don't change over night but if they don't get better, you are looking at years 3 and 4 in a row of not competing for a B1G title and not even sniffing national relevancy. That's unacceptable.

Would have been under 4 seconds left once they got past half court. Odds of drawing up a play to get an open look with under 4 seconds left aren't as good as letting them play it out. Unfortunately, we don't have a smart point guard who pushes the ball quickly to the rim to utilize his biggest strength...
