Just a couple of thoughts about OSU Men's Basketball:
1. I have watched the Buckeyes play BB since 1959. I still hate Cincinnati for what happened back then. Still think those were the best overall teams in OSU BB history.
2. Marc has to be the most disappointing 4-year player in OSU history. He showed great promised his freshman year but disappeared since. The .gif of his "half-assing" the rebound defines his career with the Buckeyes.
3. With Coach Matta's system of wanting players to play both ends of the court he will find it hard to sign the top players each year. Today's "playground bball" guys only want to score to impress the pro scouts. They don't care about defense because that adds no points for pro scouts (just ask Aaron Craft).
4. Reference #3, without 4 & 5 stars players, it is tough to compete against today's high-scoring offenses. Then you add in the "half-assing" play of some of today's players on the roster, you get results of the 2016-17 season.
It was really hard to watch this year's team play. They had no leadership. They hade no heart. Plus, I totally disagree about the talent level of the players and assistant coaches. These are 3-star players trying to compete against 4 & 5 star players in a system that does not want them to free-lance. How could they total destroy Wisc. then stink up the Schott against Rutgers?
My opinion is to end this season today and start building for next season. If Coach Matta stays then okay. Maybe OSU needs a new culture in OSU BB. That might start with dumping more assistant coaches then players. It seems to be working for Coach Meyers.
