  • SPORTS MOMENT: Watched in person the 2005 OSU/UM game at the Big (out) House. Was my 5th OSU/UM game seen in person at the time, and Troy Smith and our boys dominated the 4th quarter to the chagrin of 100,000+ fans. Glorious glorious glorious

I had to read the first sentence of this article 3 times before I could move on. I kept thinking I had read it wrong, haha. I've got as likely a chance getting drafted next month as LaQuinton Ross does.

Unfortunately, you're right. There will never be a more hollow 24-game winning streak in the history of college football. It's fun to puff our chests out during the season, we all live for it. But when it counts the most you can't beat Sparty, a team that clearly is your equal at best, and then play one of the sloppiest bowl games in recent memory, you need to just accept that we're good program, not a great one right now. Hopefully we turn it around.

Best of luck, DT. Thanks for the 3 years, you were a top tier buckeye over the last 10 yrs. Work hard, and prove the doubters wrong at the next level.

Agreed. Matta and staff really need to earn their paychecks this year. We've had the luxury of having multiple guys on the floor who could burn you from the outside, pretty much since the 06-07 team. Now we only have one, and he's a forward so no team is afraid of our guards. I have a problem with Chris Jent working on shooting mechanics to the level he has with Aaron Craft and Sam Thompson. Go back and watch the final four game against Kansas, and you can easily argue that Craft is the best plaer on the floor for OSU. His confidence now is at an all-time low, with each week getting worse.

Amir needs to get in the weight room and work on his upper-body strength. I've never seen a softer 7footer in my life. Most of his weakness is up top. He does get pushed off the block from time to time, but his arms and chest are so frail he tries to literally 'cup' rebounds with his arm. Until he can toughen up and own boards when he gets his hands on them, he's on the same level as Dallas Lauderdale...and Dallas was 6'8.
