Why transfer.  He looked good under Obrien.  A lot of his struggles last season were directly related to a terrible OL.  Just needs to survive one more season and then enter the draft.  Sadly, survive is the correct term there given the OL struggles.

Yes, Russell is a first round pick on potential alone.  After a season of playing stints at PG for Ohio State I think he draft status will solidify further.  Point Guards are gold.  PGs with range are even more valuable.  NBA teams assume the player will continue to develop after they are drafted (When practice restrictions are removed and the olayer can focus fully on basketball).  They have shown time and time again that they dont care if your game is polished.

On the subject of Michigan recruiting.  They only have 6 commits but also only have 15ish slots available.  At one point this year it looked like they were going to make the most of those spots.  They had a pretty incredible class.  Many left because of the poor play and imminent coaching change.  The right guy should be able to turn their recruiting back around.  Probably not this season but certainly in short order.

Honestly, I am just a bit numb from everything that has happened recently.  The situations around Spence, Barrett, and Kosta collectively have kind of taken my attention away from this game. 

That OSU/Louisville game was draining as well.  Basically went from the lowest of the low to "OMG WE MIGHT BE ABLE TO PULL THIS OFF" that night.

I have not read the comments so this has probably already been covered but...  I suspect players fail to report a lot of injuries.  Some don't want to be seen as weak.  Some don't want to miss time ad fall behind on the depth chart.  There could be any number of reasons.   I dont really believe anyone on the staff is trying to cover up prior knowledge of concussion symptoms or anything.  I just think it is more common than we would like.

They played like half the team was made up of freshman which happens to be the case.

Comment 02 Dec 2014

Its funny, all weekend long I was hearing how Ohio State would suffer in the rankings because of JT's injury.  We actually moved up.  The thing is...  I don't see any of the top 3 dropping two spots unless they lose.  And I dont see FSU dropping to 5th if they win.

Thad has done well in both the NCAA and the Big Ten tournaments which gives him extra chances to play ranked teams.  The early season OOC schedules have been pretty poor.  The system is working but unless you are a die hard basketball fan it can be tough to get into Ohio State basketball during the early season.
