Not to mention the fact that he's a few years removed from coaching kids; he's had a taste of coaching professionals now who have different motivations, and working with kids who aren't paid to play yet will drive him crazy, as will having to suck up to rich boosters. I give him one contract term, then he's gone - back to the NFL,

Cheers to all of you for making this my favorite, most frequented website. The fact that it is about my alma mater and its terrific athletic teams is just an added bonus. Being able to log on and read casually about my favorite things has brought me great solace in some very rough patches in my life, and for that I gratefully thank you.

Do a Google image search and look at some of the photos of him wrestling - it is comical, especially considering that these kids in his weight class aren't tiny themselves, but he sure makes most of them look that way!

Got it. I was REALLY hoping that we were going to be able to write off his first 3 seasons as "development" after he dominated this year, but sadly, this doesn't seem feasible. I wish Thad had a guy on his staff to work with the bigs more.

Well, they are 11 games in now, right? It's not a full season yet but they are a third of the way of their regular-season schedule (11 of 32). It's indicative enough for me to make the assessment that there's not really been that much improvement.

 "Jesus, Amir just did it AGAIN" is becoming a familiar phrase around my house every time I watch the basketbuckeyes. He had one decent game where he kept his hands and head up, but the rest of the season Amir's game has been a clown show.

I wouldn't necessarily give up on Amir, but I would definitely make him the backup. To whom he would be the backup seems to be the real issue - Tate's too small for the 5, Lee has played a few (but not enough) solid minutes and so has McDonald, but none seem to have the game yet to be moved into a starting role. If I see Amir clang another 2-footer, fade away with his little jump hook instead of muscling it to the rim, get stripped taking the ball to the hoop, or mishandle another feed pass, I will lose my mind.

I would tend to agree with you on the decommitment phenomenon, but we've thankfully been the beneficiary of way more flips in our favor than not. There's no shortage of high-fiving and backslapping when we get one, so we have to take it gracefully when we lose one, too.
