As a Buckeye alum (and UA alum for that matter), this one hurts. That said, I live 10 minutes from the Nova campus - I can certainly see why kids would want to play there. Jay Wright does it right! Hopefully he re-commits to the good guys. No matter the decision, best of luck to him.
The wheels on the bus.....
Put me on the "I find this potential hire to be peculiar" list.
Who knows, maybe it will work out. He better take a long long LONG hard look at this job offer (and the potential lack of longevity) cause while we'll give him a year or two to get his bearings (and let's face it, the team he is walking in to has some serious holes), he'll have about maybe a 3rd and or 4th year to win 22+ games consistently or we will be calling for his resignation.....we Buckeye fans are a bit of a fanatical fanbase!!
I almost wonder why we wouldn't just put Jent in there to keep the ship afloat for this year, and then go after the Wichita State coach after this coming season. This just feels so incomplete to me. I simply don't understand (and never have) why we can't consistently compete for Nat'l championships in BOTH football and basketball. Makes no darn sense to me.
Interesting timing. Big 12 (or whatever they call themselves these days) seems like a fairly easy conference to win 10 games in....oh well - best of luck to boomer sooner in retirement!
PS - Gold Coast of Chicago is a little more pricey then Norman.....
I honestly don't care where CB goes....good luck to him. Hope he gets his act together and takes advantage of the gifts bestowed on him!
Those who stay, will be champions. On the flipside, he's been in school 4 yrs. Go overseas and make some cash. You can make some nice bank in some of the leagues. He can make some serious cashola - money that will set him up for the rest of his life. Good luck young man...
Why am I here?
And all world Jabrill STILL MISSED the tackle....DOH!
Best of luck young man!
I don't care - if he chooses Ohio State - cool. If he chooses Clemson - cool. Hope wherever he ends up he does the right thing and gets the degree first and foremost. The rest will take care of itself - no matter where he ends up. Good luck with the decision young man!
I dislike Mondays
Grew up going to St. Johns arena - and I would call it UGLY. But man when that place had 13,276 packed in to it (especially during the Jimmy Jackson years) you literally would walk out of that place with your ears ringing. In the few times I have been in that cavern dump called the Schott - never have I felt that.....
On the flipside, at least they serve beer at the Schott
Actually a pretty valid point on the lighting. Been to MSG several times and I really can never tell how full it is for games cause you usually can't see that far up. They could do that pretty cheaply too....I like it - well done you!
They should bulldoze the Schott. Andy Geiger's lasting legacy to Ohio State is that cavernous ego trip of a building. It should NEVER EVER EVER have been built. And no matter what they do to "spruce it up" is going to change the fact that it has zero character and zero atmosphere....
BIG will be down next year. If we do the following we should be ok next season. I can see a 5th place finish in the league.
1) Learn how to shoot free throws - cause they're free after all
2) Play with passion
3) Grow a spine and play 40 mins and not sulk when the chips don't go our way
Focus on the following:
Play with PASSION - be happy and thankful you get to play D1 college hoops for somebody like Ohio State.
Work on rebounding - especially at angles
FREE THROWS - there's a reason they're called FREE
Grow a spine - too many times this team gets down by double digits or the ball doesn't bounce their way etc - then they sulk for the next several minutes in the game and FINALLY start playing in either the beginning of the 2nd half or late in the game.....GROW A SPINE - hoops will not go your way 100% of the time. There will be ups and downs in every game - deal with it. Not everyone gets a trophy - sometimes you gotta work for it!
WIN - no matter what, just win. That will fix a lot that ills this group. BIG will be down next year - good opportunity to succeed.
Wait - THIS HAS TO BE ROCK BOTTOM - a Rutgers thread on a Buckeye website.....
I actually picked them to go to the final 4 in one pool. Veteran squad peaking at the right time. This is just a goofy hoops season and I could easily see a 6,7,8 or 9 seed winning the whole thing!
I'll agree though - how in the world did we beat scUM in hoops (and wasn't it in their barn).....
I thought Kareem Walker was their answer at TB?
Canned like Creaned Corn....
The amount of money some of these foreign leagues is paying is quite high.....he could go make some nice coin and set himself up for the rest of his life if he plays his cards right. Good for him! Best of luck you man.....
Mama's is one of the last places left from when I was in school. Hope that place continues to hang on for years to come.....prices were always good and so was the food....love that joint!
Our basketball team has issues....FYI
The wheels on the bus have fallen off, fallen off, fallen off
The wheels on the bus have fallen off, all through the town!
Please say no!
