Comparing KBD to David Lighty is an insult to Lighty. Plain and simple.
Can we have the ladies fill in for the men on Thursday?
I edited the post, the R word was in there originally.
If anything we should be praising Pastor for being optimistic when all of us have lost hope, not call him names.
Looking forward to the Thad truthers defending this latest episode.
I appreciate your optimism, I wish I felt the same way.
We have definitely played with more effort this year. I think this team would beat the 2015-16 team.
However, the conference is a lot worse and yet we are on track for an even worse season. That's not a good thing. I wouldn't be shocked if Trevor and Jaquan take off after this season either. Next year might be worse
I'm with you, Zero
B1G is wayyyy down this season and we still can't beat anybody.
After four down years in a row I'm not sure how we can magically expect things to change next year with the same players and same coach.
Kam Williams girlfriend (Cait Craft) could probably be in the starting lineup of this squad, not sure if I'm being sarcastic or being truthful
I hate to tell you this but Thad's not getting fired, for better or worse...but I would be lying if I said I didn't agree with your sentiment of wanting change
i don't understand how anyone can think this team still has a chance to go dancing this year and I also don't understand optimism for next year. Marc Loving will be gone and he's the only dude who can score. KBD isn't going to be Evan Turner. Kaleb Wesson will be good but he can't win all by himself. I think we are in for one more extremely disappointing season before Thad is gone.
Obviously Ohio State would never EVER accept an invite to the CBI, but since there's like a real chance we could miss the NIT, joking about the CBI takes the pain away
Ohio State Basketball 2016-17; Dare To Dream!
Chris, thanks for the summary and preview for what should be a truly lackluster Big Ten performance in the tournament.
Do you have any information on how Big Ten teams have done in the CBI? Asking for a friend...
2014 - OSU, without Deshaun Thomas, struggles to do anything right and ends up with an absolutely embarassing loss to Dayton in the tournament. We've got a good recruiting class though, "things will get better."
2015 - Armed with D'Angelo Russell, OSU manages to lose even more games than in 2014 but sneaks into the tournament. D'Angelo goes off on VCU and then Arizona murders us. We've got a good recruiting class though, "things will get better"
2016 - Armed with a Top 10 class, OSU manages to be awful and loses in the 2nd round of the NIT. 4 of the 5 freshman transfer. Thad says the problem players are gone, "things will get better"
2017 - OSU is embarassingly bad, and may miss even the NIT. BuckeyeBen7.7 says "things will get better"
Come on man. You can be sick of us all you want, but things aren't going to get better unless we make some kind of change.
You nailed it.
The guys do try hard. They just aren't that good. I think that's what's so inexcusable. No matter how hard they play, they can't win (in a bad Big Ten). That's how badly we are lacking talent.
Last year they didn't try at all. They would get down big and stay down big. This year, they always find a way to get down about 10-12 points and always cut it to about 3 before losing by 10.
Ahh yes the age old debate.
I grew up in Chicago in the 90's and Michael Jordan was obviously our hero. Now he's dead to me as long as he is sponsoring Michigan athletics. He's also a world-class asshole in general.
That being said, I do think Jordan was a better basketball player than Lebron, but that's obviously a great debate. Lebron is by far the better athlete, there's no way you can debate that. However I'm going to take this a step farther...
Tracy McGrady is the greatest of all time.
Yep, we've gone from being lazy and losing to trying hard and still losing. Great.
I don't know man, I could picture some mid major point guard hitting about 9 or 10 threes against us.
I just hope we don't' run into Akron again, what an overtime thriller. One for the NIT record books.
I guess when 4 of your 5 recruits transfer, it's actually you and not them despite what you say at a luncheon event with boosters.
Yes, that includes me. No matter how bad they are I can't turn the damn game off
My god we are 5-9 in a very very bad Big Ten by recent standards.
I admire any of you who still can defend the players or the coaching staff. You can't fault the effort, but even when they play their best they still can't beat anybody.
The way the last 4 seasons have gone including this one, Willie B's shot seems like an unbelievably distant memory.
Well put, Mr. Hove
Spoiler alert; they will get down double digits within 10 minutes, and false rally, ending in the final score that Tim has predicted.
As always, no matter how bad the boys are, I will continue to watch every game (why, I will never know).
In the meantime, go book your postseason hoops tickets in advance!
I'm sure if he did, he would be raining 3's on us just like every other team this entire year has
