If this has already been discussed  somewhere, I  apologize but does anyone think Coach Matta's back problems could be behind some of the drop off we've seen in the last couple of years? From what I understand, he's in constant pain. I would imagine it would be hard to run practice while in the kind of pain he's supposed be in let alone manage a game effectively.

Just saying thank you all seems far to inadequate but since I still can't up vote, it's all I have.

I appreciate the offers and the kind words. BigBadBuck nailed it when he said putting things right one last time was so important. My dad is the reason I love the Buckeyes. He took me to my first football game, my first basketball game, he educated me on Buckeye lore and when I thought we weren't going to fulfill one of his last wishes, I felt like I was going to be physically ill. I expected the 11W community to come through for me with some place to buy one but I never expected anything like BroJim and BuckNutzGasMan offered. I can't find the words to express my gratitude.

I've sent you my address. Hopefully, the funeral home can make it work. This is an incredibly selfless gesture and there's no way I can thank you enough.

Actually, not too disappointed that this hoops season is over. It had to be the most  painful Buckeye team to watch since the 79-80 team.

"Imagine being put through the wringer like this as a high school student, and having to face up to seven more weeks of public pressure. How on earth does this seem like a good idea? Why would the McDowells put their child through this?"

This statement really jumped out at me. Having been and still being, a parent of teenagers and young adults, trust me, it's rarely as simple as it appears on the surface. And on the surface, I would agree that the answer is simple. Let the kid go where he wants. Right after the disappointment that the Bucks wouldn't be adding another 5*, this was my first thought too. But the longer this has dragged on, I'm thinking more and more that this mom is doing what she thinks is best for her son. I've got nothing but a "gut" feeling to back up this view but considering the heat this woman has got to be taking in her community (and much farther away), I get the sense she's trying to use the last bullet she has in her gun in hopes of getting him away from an environment she feels harmful to her son. Really, what does she gain from it personally? She's become somewhat (in)famous, sure but if MM goes out of state for school, she'll deal with crap from people on the street, in grocery stores, at work, etc for a long time. Especially, if he excels somewhere else.

I'm having similar problems on my iPhone with one addition. Most of the times I touch the screen brings up the "copy/define" function and I have a hard time getting out of it/

If this team wins the B1G tourney or makes the Sweet 16, it may turn out to be Matta's best coaching jobs at TOSU. They were lost in January and the NIT had begun to look like a long shot. They aren't great now but at least, they're playing like a team and they're really fun to watch. They seem to have developed the chemistry they were lacking last month.

Comment 29 Jan 2014

After each game, I keep telling myself they can't look any worse but incredibly, I am wrong every time I say it. Damn, that was a hard watch. I'm not sure a W would've made me feel any better about it. How can TOSU not have at least one player that create his own shot?
