Mitchell sticks which I guess no news is good news.

We can only hope. I'm not having a good feeling about this commit due to known family issues. I hope we can hear some certain news soon one way or the other.

Junior year in HS I was fouled at the buzzer in a game against our rival. Made 2 free throws to tie the game which we went on to win. Awesome feeling. Matt Sylvester's three is one of my all time favorite sports moments although it meant nothing in regards any tournament hopes that year. I think that shot was instrumental in the building of our program.

but there were brief glimpses this year of him taking over games (I remember one where he had like 6 points and 2 blocks within 3 minutes).

And there are glimpses of a 5 looking like a 10 but she is really a 5. The fact is Amir is an average player at best. I don't like ragging on any OSU player but we won't win any championships because of Amir's contributions.

75% of the big ten is dog shit and even a halfway decent psu team is going to make waves. if franklin stays, they're set up for a comeback, because he is a legit coach and will absolutely DOMINATE pennsylvania recruiting

So all of us should be fearful of this awesome being called Franklin. He is the man who will bring OSU football to it's knees. We simply do not stand a chance against the awesomeness of Franklin.

The number of people addicted to benzos and opiates is probably at all time high. Some people see easy money in that. Those people who legitimately need pain meds will have a harder road. Taxpayers will not only pay for disability claims but will pay for the "disabled" and their drugs as they con docs for benzos and opiates. Sorry to get on my high horse but I see it every day.

How many of those schools' fans cheer for OSU? I read a lot of sports fan sites and I think the answer would be few to none. I root for OSU. I don't care about the other schools. I'll leave conference pride to the SEC schools who can't win for themselves.

Comment 28 Mar 2014

I wish Q luck but of all our early departures (other than ADV) this is the least painful for me. I hope he makes a NBA team but I'm very doubtful. At least he'll be making more money in Europe than he would in Columbus so who could blame him.

Comment 25 Mar 2014

Kennard was never coming to OSU. He always wanted a blue blood higher-profile school. While OSU is certainly among the top programs we aren't among the blue bloods. Kennard was always going to choose a blue blood. I thought it was going to be UK so I was surprised at Duke. He is just one of those recruits who, regardless of other circumstances, was going to a blue blood program. I thought everyone knew that. Seems like Jeremy might have had a clue.

Comment 25 Mar 2014

I agree although I think that is still depressing. Bell, at this point, is another McDonald at best. We simply have no talent at the 5. Let me preface this by saying I am a Matta fan BUT he has whiffed at getting talent at this position lately. Anyone who has followed hoops recruiting knows he has tried with many of the top recruits but has come up empty. He has to do better if we are to have a hope at at B1G title let alone a NC.

Comment 25 Mar 2014

Neither appear likely, so they'll have to bank on the development of either Williams or McDonald.

Wow, that is truly, truly depressing.

Although Tate is coming off an injury, and gets less love from the scouts, I love the way he plays. I think he will surprise some people.

Comment 22 Mar 2014

Where is he going? To Europe? Not the NBA. I'd bet my house on this one. Personally I don't really care if he stays or goes. He can score but he isn't a player who can take us to the next level. He couldn't take us to the second round this year. He wouldn't make a difference next year unless making it to the tourney and losing in first round makes all that much of difference to you.

Comment 22 Mar 2014

I'd be excited to see Thad going after my grandma for the 5 spot. Sorry to see him do shit in recruiting a good big in the last several classes.

Comment 22 Mar 2014

I think the frustration is that he is taking up a 'ship. He has been a detriment to the team. A major disappointment. It is one thing if you just aren't talented enough. It is another if you play disinterested and uninvolved. He isn't earning his 'ship and any student who is scrapping by to pay his own way is going to be pissed that he floats along. As a fan I'd just like him to go somewhere where he can earn his keep.

Not giving 100% absolutely is a reason to blame someone.

You can't blame everything on Amir. Amir Williams obviously lacks 100% effort every game.

Comment 22 Mar 2014

Why does his name keep coming up on this forum?

Because he is the only chance we have to improve at the C position next year. Amir will start again if he doesn't come to OSU. That is something none of us want to see.

Comment 22 Mar 2014

So Craft was to blame for all the bad decisions and bad shots LSJ made/took? And the lazy play of Amir? Those two are more to blame for the suck ass team we had this year than Craft by a LONG SHOT. If they are such pussies to quit playing because the media paid more attention to another player than they just need to go away.

Comment 22 Mar 2014

Payne was never going to play with Sully. That is a fact. Anyone who followed hoops recruiting at that time knew that was true. I'm glad we had Sully, even if it was only for 2 years.

Comment 20 Mar 2014

LMAO. Get in line behind PSU and IU. This OSU team lost to several sucky teams this year and UD is just the latest. Thad has to work harder. This season is on him. He had the talent but did nothing with it.
