Matta seems to have the train back on the track and I believe the players will buy into Jents intensity. I look for a good season 25 wins,competitive in the conference, NCAA Sweet 16. This team has depth at every position with the exception of point guard but Jackson will be a positive with his shooting ability.
Looks like some very nice offers and the type of players that would work very hard to return OSU to the top of the conference and good NCAA runs.
This is going to be a really good coaching staff and I believe it will show on the court this season I expect this team to play with a lot of heart and want to prove they are a quality team.
Matta and Jent are going to light a fire and challenge this team to produce I look for a more team oriented game offensively and defensively. If everyone steps it up this team could win 25 games and place top 4 in the Big 10.
OSU has the best coaching staff in the entire country I love this it will help keep the program on top.
The sky is the limit for Lyle he has shown the ability to score in different ways,his passing is solid areas of his game that may need work is ball handling and defense. I look for him to work hard this summer and get more control of his game he can be the go to guy in this offense.
Wesson really seems to be improving I think he can a solid center for the Buckeyes just has to keep working hard and getting better.
I am happy Thompson will be back he has the ability to become a double double threat if he can stay out of foul trouble,working with Oden will help tremendously. OSU has some nice depth at the center with Thompson,Bell,Funderburk and Potter and you will see Potter and Funderburk shooting 15 ft shots and even some 3s this team should be much improved and fun to watch.
Giddens was given every opportunity to play and improve at OSU his problem was he could not stay out of foul trouble long enough to get into a flow of the game,he has talent but has to work on his hands and shooting touch. It would have been nice if he dedicated himself to the program and gave it one more year instead of going to Bama and sitting out an entire season.
I love giving Ohio kids a shot at OSU a lot of kids grow up wanting to be a Buckeye and will work hard and show pride in wearing the uniform,Go Bucks keep up the good work!
Seems to be a good kid with the right attitude I can't wait to see him in a Buckeye uniform.
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.
