I would like to see CJ Jackson just be the point guard.

I really like Lyle as a player, just not as a point guard. 

I agree with the OP, this is not last year's blow 2 home games to mid major opponents team. They have a ways to go, but have already shown improvement, effort, and the freshman this year are way better than last years (which is surprising to me based on recruiting rankings, goes to show we all know nothing)

Comment 17 Nov 2016

You heard it here first; Ohio State wins this game and Lyle snaps out of his funk.

I've been wrong before, though. In fact I'm wrong about 95% of the time.

Comment 15 Nov 2016

Hey, I actually agree with you here.

Grandstaff said he was going to Oklahoma to be closer to his family and now plays at Depaul. I wouldn't call him that name, but he's definitely a flake.

I liked Giddens too. Raw offensively but he played his ass off, AJ too. 

I think we all know I've been a very adamant supporter of the players and the coaching staff in particular; I'm going to hope this was an anomaly and the boys come out and beat Providence. If Providence routs them at home, I'll start looking for my pitchfork.

I had to dig to find this, which mirrors what I saw on Twitter. What I also saw on Twitter, and as someone on a different thread posted, there was mention that Micah Potter looked great and he might start at center. Which would be interesting/sweet.

Comment 31 Oct 2016

You are correct.

Give me these new guys over the guys who left last year all day every day. Mitchell couldn't make a layup, Grandstaff couldn't play defense against a 5th grade team, Harris and Giddens played hard but were not that great.

It's going to be a good time to be an OSU hoops fan again. Chris Jent will have these guys playing hard.

Comment 31 Oct 2016

Yeah they played against Ohio U this weekend. I think most teams these days have some sort of secret pre-season scrimmage before their one allowed exhibition game.

The result will mean absolutely nothing in the long run, I guess I just hoped to hear better things

Comment 31 Oct 2016

I am excited for the season, but what I've seen on Twitter about the secret scrimmage with Ohio U makes me cautious.

I will watch every game regardless of whether they win the damn thing or don't even make the NIT, but it would be better for my health if they played well.

Comment 31 Oct 2016


The schedule is rough, but not as rough as last year. They got their asses whooped last year so they know the amount of work they need to put in. And Jent is back running the offense instead of Paulus, so even if they aren't great I feel like it would be almost impossible to do worse than last year

Comment 31 Oct 2016

I just saw that tweet too. I wonder if that guy had access to the secret scrimmage?

I would love for Micah to start. I love when Ohio kids are OSU's best players.

Comment 31 Oct 2016

I am very optimistic about this team.

THAT BEING SAID, I heard they did not win their secret scrimmage this weekend against Ohio U, but who knows if it was an actual real game or not. You can't read too much into those things, but of course I am.

I would love for Micah Potter to start. We haven't had an offensively talented big in forever.
