This team and this program have become unwatchable. 

Thad Matta is a man of tremendous character. He's done unthinkable things with this basketball program. Unfortunately, I think we've reached a point of no return. The program has plateaued. 

I don't know how it has gotten to this point, but this team (actually the past 2-3 years) has become the antithesis of what we've known of Thad Matta-coaches teams. They foul too much, choke under pressure, turn the ball over far too much, and have terrible shot selection. The tenets of OSU basketball that we've been accustomed to seeing over Thad's first 9-10 seasons have vanished. Disappeared. Gone. 

I don't know the answer right now, but with an 0-5 start to B1G play looming, the NCAA tournament is already almost certainly out of the picture. It's sad, frustrating and disappointing to watch, but the time has come where something drastic needs to happen. There is no change in sight if the program remains as is...

And this all comes from someone who has vehemently opposed those calling for Matta's job the past 2 years. He earned the right to turn this around, but unfortunately nothing has changed this season and instead we've almost seen regression. 

I don't need to post my opinion, as this one echoes my sentiment...well done!

Astonishingly enough (or not), I loved it too...since Peppers will leave for the NFL, he's my new "hate guy"...I'm just hoping that next season the Buckeyes stick that 'bat' where the sun don't shine.

from the Toledo Blade...excellent article which echoes my thoughts exactly...


Wholesale staff changes are never advised — and, really, who are we to question Meyer? — but Ohio State can’t risk keeping the status quo. At the least, Meyer should move on from co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Tim Beck.

Beck came to Ohio State last year after four seasons as the offensive coordinator at Nebraska, where his teams never threw well and quarterback Taylor Martinez failed to develop as anticipated. The Huskers’ passing offenses in those years ranked 104th, 91st, 97th and 82nd nationally.

We’ve seen the same pattern at Ohio State.

Although there are many factors — including the protection and the receivers’ lack of development — Barrett’s confidence as a passer has clearly frayed since his record-setting 2014 season under the instruction of Tom Herman, his QB rating falling from second in the country as a redshirt freshman to 55th as a junior this season. For as much as Meyer preaches balance, the Buckeyes’ passing game ranked 100th and 82nd the past two years.

Weren't we saying this exact same thing last season? You think there might be a common link (ahem, Beck/Warriner) here?? Beck was relieved of his duties at Nebraska because of his lack of an effective offensive scheme and his inability to develop QB's...Warriner is an Oline coach...period. One season of this offensive ineptitude can blamed on getting used to the "new guy", but two in a row has to be put on Urban. Also, stop blaming the receivers--they were open downfield last night, JT just couldn't get it to them--it seems like his arm has gotten weaker? Okay, they finished 11-1 in the regular season and I predicted 9-3, and we beat ttun yet again....looking forward to 2017...Happy New Years!!!
