When they said body type on Elflein, was it arm length?    Playing Center. he will be drafted without question. 

I think Jaylen Holmes is going to have a bigger year than Hubbard, and might be the guy to go Pro...

You make reading these forums so much better!!!   I find myself just scanning threads for your comments.

I actually bought one 2 years ago.. my buddy sent me the link... I have worn it twice... once last year, and once the year before... yes I have put it on my body for 2 games... and you can guess which 2 games those were...  I have not burned it.. but I safely packaged it and hid it in area where no human being can ever wear it again and unleash mass misery...   

I actually thought the jersey was quality, parts I liked better than Nike Jersey's which I owned over 100... Gave about 70 to my nephew when he turned 14, he loved them..  I saved about 30 of them that were authentic... because I was a little afraid he would run to ebay and just sell them...  I cant wait to give the rest to him.. but I am just not sure the timing of when that will be...

There is a lot more accountability in the coaches poll now than there used to be.. but it still seems useless as a Ranking.. but it is a good indicator of which coaches respect coaches...

Some people rush to irrationaly bash, and some rush to irrationaly defend...    Extreme viewpoints with no ability to recognize it.   I like to think them of them as the Vocal minority...

It has always been a long standing 'thing' with OSU basketball... You can lose, but if you are going to lose... it has to be with Ohio Talent..

This is not a Gene Smith thing.. He is taking orders from the admin/BOT... Nothing against Gene... but This has been going on for over 40 years...  maybe longer.. but I know for sure.. 40 years...

Getting Ohio Talent is great when it is elite... But I also understand Matta or any coach needs to get players at that next level down who fit their system... and in basketball recruiting is impacted by your current roster... it is a tougher sell than football.  

I hope Matta rights this ship and writes his own retirement speech one day... but I dont think this turns around.. Next year will be our last good(NCAA) year for about 3 years.. and he wont survive past that... And I am not not looking forward to the coach after Matta.. He could stay forever IMHO... there are a lot worse things than second round NIT exits...    

Please save this post, and shove it in my face in 3 years when Matta is winning Big ten titles again.. because I will be dancing while eating crow...

The seat belt is very pertinent.. from the stand point.. That people use 'what might be possible' as an arguement  for what is most likely... I should have spelled that out more.. 

Comment 20 Jul 2016

Everytime I see this type of comment.. I ask ... How often does this happen.. From a domestic violence stand point what do you think the percentage is... 1% or less... 

I only bring that up, because of word usage... when People say Don't ever hit a woman.. it is language that assumes the listener understands that if there is a Woman who is carrying around the secret button to end the world, and you have only one option.. and that is to hit her to stop her.. then do it...

The never hit a woman is language that is used as part of Domestic Violence awareness... 

It is kind of like when they saw always wear a seat belt.. inevitably.. someone will have a story where someone wrecked the car, got stuck in the seat belt and the car blew up... so in that case.. You would be better not to wear the seat belt..

For me it is going to take a little time to see if the Ship is not still taking on water...

Thad is not completely innocent in what has been happening... In basketball you knows recruits for a long time, so it is surprising to lose a whole class...  Right after he supposedly missed on Amir/Thomposon class(The one that didnt develop).

I would like to believe a lot of what happened was due to Thad's  health problems that limited his recruiting and his ability to be hands on in coaching... 

I feel like Bohls was the scape goat for the recent recruiting class... And Maybe he takes some blame... But I didnt like how that went down.  But Pretty sure the OSU admin stepped in and forced some changes.. I dont think Thad wanted Bohls gone... 

It is interesting to see the new Focus on Ohio talent, because that wasn't really there before.  And the unwritten rule in OSU basketball through the years is.. you can lose.. but if you do.. it better be with Ohio Guys... 

I was concerned with that last recuriting class before it got on campus... Our recruitng was on a serious down turn, and we seemed to be taking some guys that were highly rated out of staters that seemed to have gaps issues(in their games): and for a program that has not had a good history of developing players it was a concern.. but based on recent  recruiting classes we were getting before this class had more potential...  

There are always at least two sides to ever story, and generally I will side with the coach... but All these major coaches have major egos... and it is dangerous to just assume someone is in the right... I love thad and what he has done for Osu basketball, growing up in the Eldon Miller era... I will take down years where I still get to go to the NIT tournament...But The next two years are going to be extremely important for Thad and Staff... He has lost a lot of his good assistants and recruiting has taken a major hit... 

At the end of the day, I want to see Thad leave on his own terms... And I still believe none of this would be an issue if it wasnt for his health... but ... it is what it is... Ohio State isnt Unicef.. if things dont get better they will make a change...

I don't really check to see who writes which articles... but I think I can figure it out by just reading some of the content (not by name, but hey the same person wrote x article as y).     I just get the feeling there are a few writers at 11 warriors who are not going to be around much longer... Not that sports isn't important.. but I think they have a lot more talent than is deserved on a sports a forum... Ill enjoy it while I can...

I love reading the articles, much much more so than having to read the comments of us morons commenting on them and probably should just stay away from reading the comments...

Comment 12 Jul 2016

I have to agree.. If he saw something and did nothing.. He is no better than Joe Po.. but some of our own 'bots'...will come up with some excuse... 

Sports in general and the 'band of brothers' mentality needs to be revisited... Too many things happen that aren't reported...  Somehow reporting something illegal,immoral, or a rules violation against the 'team' is considered worse than having integrity...  

I think we somehow twisted the 'band of brothers'  from supporting and doing anything you can to help that brother for their good to mean you have to do anything even if it is illegal or immoral... I said sports ealrier... I see it in Corporate America, and Churches as well..  And surprise no one ever really want to talk about it.. ramifications for whistle blowing are too much for many to overcome... 

Comment 04 Jul 2016

you don't think baseball has issues with small market versus large markets teams?    Just a little sensitive to your Cavs comment winning a championship... I am probably taking it the wrong way.. but since you have a moniker like Ohio's praise... someone who is a life long Cavs fan it just seems odd to make a comment like that...

All sports have their issues.. basketball is no different.. but lets not act like baseball and football dont have their own problems...

Still Shaking my head at the comment wishing that another team from Cleveland would have won it.. Everyone is entitled to their opinion.. but at least Change your Moniker to something Like Ohio's Praise but with my own subjective Priorities..

Comment 04 Jul 2016

best news I have heard in a while...  What a Great chance to beat the next best team ever...   Will be interesting to see how this changes their defense, ball movement and passing. 

Exciting time for warriors.. until you lose one game with this line up.. and then the sky will falling...Go for it though.. Try to go 82-0...

Is KD married... Feel sorry for other players' wives who have to hang out with Curry's wife...  That cant be fun...

Comment 01 Jul 2016

Yeah..I did not get the Wiggins pick... After the Anthony Bennet Pick, that pick made me cringe...  They drafted an Athlete without the basketball skill set.  Of course I was shaking my head at Dion Waiters as a #4 pick... 

I liked Mozgov in the Blatt system.. But that is alot of money... Ill be rooting for him.. 

Comment 28 Jun 2016

I hate it... but agree with Durant... Free Throws are a basic and I mean extremely basic fundamental... there are 7th grade girls out there who shoot free throws decently.  It is probably why I would never be invited to an OSU basketball practice.. I would be throwing chairs at coaches and players because of their awful free throw shooting.. Free throw shooting is not a god given ability.. it is a skill you work on.

Now if you want to change rules to penalize teams for extending the games in the last minute, to make 60 seconds take 15 mintues to play.. I am all for that...    But I don't have any great solutions, that could not also be maniupulated...  I love college basketball ... my favorite thing to watch... but the last 60 seconds is absolutely brutal.. changes the whole make up of the game... Its like a shoot out in soccer.. Why the hell play an hour one way.. and then change everything for 60 seconds..
