This is a great hire I love Jents fire and passion for the game it will rub off on the players in the program and get recruits excited about Ohio State basketball.
Sounds like a great crop of talent I hope OSU can pull in a few and put the Buckeyes back in the top 10, Go Buckeyes I am a fan win or lose but it is nice to be the big dog.
Jones has the talent and athletic ability to be a very good qb in the NFL I personally feel he is much better than Hackenburg and really is Winston considered a high IQ guy in Tampa Bay?
OSU will have better team chemistry this season plus bringing in Jent will add intensity I am looking for a good season.
This is huge for OSU basketball I believe he will bring more intensity to the team and the players will respect him because he has been through the program and is an example of his hard work paying off.
This makes OSU better immediately because the defense will have to honor Jacksons offensive game and that will open up for Lyle, Loving and the others. I am excited to see Potter and Funderburk they seem to be bigs with good hands and the ability to score,Wesson also has a good upside the Buckeyes now have depth and should be much better this season.
Things are looking up for OSU yesterday and today has been very positive and it looks like this team is on the way back. I see at least 25 wins this season and this team will be fun to watch.
Were you on the same team as Jent and Steve Hall? That was fun to watch I believe Tom B even played some it was fun watching and playing against these guys back in the day.
Jent loves OSU and I believe in a couple years he will be a fine head coach and very good recruiter he will bring a passion to this team,he is an honest guy and was a good student he will be able to sit in a living room and sell the program from experience.
Thad has probably known about this awhile I bet he has some really good coaches lined up for an interview. Sometimes change can be a good thing Boals will be missed he is a good coach and mentor to a lot of OSU players.
If Thad retires I would certainly give Mr. Craft an interview we all know he would give 110% and the players would respect him plus he could get on the floor and back up what he is selling.
I believe Johnson has the most upside if he can get in the 2016 class if not a transfer may be the way to go as they are a bit more experienced and may be able to play more minutes and contribute early.
I am with you if you want to declare for the NBA out of High School that is fine go for it but if you go to college you must stay for 3 years,the NBA is just screwing up things with their rule and I believe it is time for the NCAA to stand up and support education and college basketball.
This team does have talent and adding 2-3 piecrs next season will make them a better team because they are going to have to compete hard to get playing time. The season had some great wins and a few bad losses but I believe it is part of the learning process. Go Bucks work hard and come back next season with some attitude.
I believe he will play Sunday I highly doubt there is a reason other than illness for him missing the game vs Akron. Bates-Diop is pretty good on defense I like his length when the Bucks press and he has a respectable game you have to honor on offense that defenses have to respect and it opens up shots for the team. Go Bucks beat Gators!
I have to tell you that was a stressful game to watch but the Buckeyes stepped it up late and found a way to win with a man down. Several players had a good game,keep working hard and make free throws and this team can win some games.
This is a big win I don't care that it was only Akron OSU stepped it up with a man down they could have easily folded but found a way to get the win was it pretty no. I thought MM had a pretty good game with 9 points and at times pretty good defense,Lyle turned it up later in the game,Loving played very solid,Williams hit some key shots as well,the bigs were ok but have to improve. I honestly don't know a lot about Florida but I like the Buckeyes chances at home with a healthy team. Go Bucks play hard and make it happen.
This OSU team could really use Bates-Diop in this game his length on defense causes problems and he has a descent shot you have to respect. Loving is playing solid but this team has to get 2 or 3 more guys in double digits if they are going to win this game because Akron is going to keep pumping the 3 ball. Would like to see TT and Giddens show they are better than these MAC players but so far that has not been the case. Go Bucks take over in the 2nd half and live to play another day!
This game was painful to watch but it is a learning experience for this young team they will remember this beating and it will put a bad taste in their mouth for future games. I am a fan win or lose lets show some class and support this team through the rough times and I believe they will pay the fans back with a lot of winning. I hope this teams stays together and puts in the extra effort in the NIT and offseason. Go Bucks!
Wayne Trace Raiders Class of 85 thanks for letting me give a little shout out!
This is Thads best coaching in a long time this young team did make progress from the start of the season until now and this team may not be done just yet. Tates injury didn't help things for in the depth area but it has shown Loving is a very good player and seems to be taking the step to the next level, Lyle is starting to gain confidence and will be very solid if he sticks around. The challenge for this coaching staff will be improving our bigs if OSU could get production out center spot they are going to be very tough to beat.
Before you achieve it you have to believe it, Go Bucks give it your best shot and good things will happen!
This was a big win for this team I thought Lyle,Loving and Diop played very well and Thompson at times showed flashes if this team can play just a little better Friday and get some bench scoring good things could happen.This team has improved by leaps and bounds from the start of the season and are winning at the right time it just seems MSU with the senior leadership has been the thorn in the side but they have to lace them up and play OSU is not going to roll over and let them have a free pass. Go Bucks pull off the upset and get some respect from all the nay sayers!
The Buckeyes can't look ahead they have to give 100% in this game Penn State is not just going to roll over. Hoping Lyle,Loving and Diop can have a big game and get some confidence. Take this one game at a time and play hard and get the victory, Go Bucks!
MSU played a fairly impressive game but the positive for OSU is it seemed like they may get ran out of the gym at a couple points in the game but they kept playing hard and kept it respectable. Loving is playing well it would be nice if he and Diop could get on track in the same game. Go Bucks keep playing hard and wins will come your way.
