His best teams have had lots of talent with players who were good when they came to OSU. He's not known for developing talent. That's been a big knock on him over the years.

Comment 12 Jan 2017

I'm not disagreeing with you. The product on the court isn't good. We're out of the national conversation. People don't come to games. Things are not good.

I can't see Gene letting him go mid-season.

Part of me feels like Gene will give him time to right the ship, whatever that could mean (a year, two, whatever).

Comment 12 Jan 2017

I like Thad. I appreciate what he's done at OSU, but it really feels like the time is right for new blood in the program.

And I'm late to that party. I've been hoping things would get better, but I just don't see it happening.

The reality of the situation is that given his age, charisma, and drive, if he has success at Minnesota, he won't be there long. 

He's gonna be rowin' his boat to an elite level job.

Comment 23 Dec 2016

Bringing in elite talent is one thing. We all like to see 4 and 5 star guys sign with the Buckeyes. And sure, it stinks when we miss on guys.

But then there's bringing in guys who may not be as highly ranked and developing them into dynamic players. 

I like both. And Larry Johnson, in my opinion, is capable of doing both. 

Comment 22 Dec 2016

I'm trying my best to be positive here, but I think this team is capable of at least making the NIT. 

Right now they're sitting at 10-3 with 18 conference games plus the conference tourney to go. 

Comment 22 Dec 2016

Well, I'd say that looked like a classic pre-Christmas Break letdown game, but unfortunately that's kinda how they've looked all non-conference. 

But it's a win and I'll take it. And now we wait and see what they can do in conference play.

Comment 21 Dec 2016

I remember when Urban hired some no name OC from the Iowa State Cyclones and everyone was in a panic.

Yep. And when JT got hurt against TTUN everyone wanted to fire said OC from Iowa State...

That is until OSU torched Wisky and proceeded to take down Bama and Oregon with Cardale en route to claiming the Playoff title.

Comment 21 Dec 2016

Typical Duke behavior.

Bobby Hurley and Christian Laettner were notorious for this sort of thing back in the day.

And don't expect K to do anything about it. He's a great coach but he has a history of coddling some of his best players and making excuses for them.

Comment 18 Dec 2016

Not sure this is a good idea given Kill's health issues, but let's face it, Chris Ash and Rutgers need all the help they can get.
