Dumbfounded is a word a coach uses when he's out of reasons/excuses for his team's poor play, and therefore has no clue how to fix it. IMO, this signals it's time for a change. Period.
I've often said he and Marotti are the two assistants Urban could ill afford to lose...congrats, Coach Coombs!
do you have a constantly updated comprehensive list of signees for us to follow so we don't have to continuously scroll down the home page?
Lyle is a punk, and has been since he's been here--hell, that whole class reeked of entitlement. As I stated before, Coach Matta's a great guy with impeccable integrity, but his system just isn't working here anymore. It's time for new blood, or at least a transfusion--in this case an assistant taking over (Jent, NOT Paulas)
Nice, Marionaire, nice...didn't know you had it in ya'
Weed is ubiquitous.
I'm surprised baby Jay isn't over $1M.
oh, I wouldn't be surprised if he is, it's just not made public...and to reiterate, they can pay whatever they want--they still won't beat the Buckeyes ;)
In. Urban. I. Trust.
Seriously though I'm looking forward to the change and hoping Meyer gives Wilson a lot more freedom so we can get plays called out much quicker.
good article on Gant... this kid is a 'must get'
I'm actually surprised that no one from 11W picked up on it and "sic'd" it...it was an obvious error that could've/should've been addressed...come on, DJ, time to wake up! :D
MENA FOUNDER LEARNS LESSON. Tom Herman will soon learn: People aren't monolith.
Spellcheck...learn it, love it...USE IT!!!
I think we're getting Ellison...In. Urban. I. Trust.
nice...welcome to the fold, young grasshopper--now go out and catch some passes!
That said, let's hope he's gone before Cincinnati comes to Columbus in 2019
Spoken like a true Marionite...I, for one, absolutely hope he's still there so we can whoop on his transferring ass. Good luck to the young man, but if he can't handle the Buckeye heat, then I'm glad he's getting the hell out of our kitchen.
he already declared for the draft
good luck, and can't wait to "welcome" him back in 2019 (if he's still there)
Seen this movie before--hope it's the sequel and not a rerun...guess we'll see in 232 days...In Urban I Trust...GO BUCKS!!!

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.
I'm good with either choice he makes, but I feel he'll definitely benefit from another year in an improved (I hope) system. As someone already mentioned, he's a Buckeye for life. Period.
man, that depth chart looks pretty damn good...I'm ready for some football NOW!!!
