Then you trade the pick...   I am not sold on Wiggins still as #1 type pick.. he was a top ten player at best, and people fell in love with his athleticism.      Leave to fight another day...  Neither he nor bennett were guys they should have drafted..  trade down like the celtics did this year..

I am a little nervous with Coombs calling the defense... After Schiano leaves... if we turn the Def calls over to Coombs, I feel like that would be similar to Going from Herman to Warriner on offense...  It may happen, but it would not last for more than 2 years...

Last year Cleveland Beat the best team in NBA regular season history with the world watching and doubting...  Next year they will have a chance to beat the media proclaimed best team ever with the world watching again...     Those are once in a lifetime type events... watching the CAVs draft a player who will help the team struggle to 30 wins for the next 2-3 years would not make me say..  I am glad we got something for LeBron....   

I enjoyed this years finals once it was over... because I remember growing up and having to beg people to go to Cavs games, even when Magic and Bird were in town...

Completely agree... and I am not completely sold on the CAVS ability to draft players, not the #1 pick... And even that is suspect... With Bennet and Wiggins...    I'm actually OK if they CAVs trade their draft picks... The Bennet and Wiggins picks were hard to watch...

Say what you want about Jim Tressel, but what he did at the time when he did it, under the circumstances he did, against Michigan is one of the most impressive things in Ohio Sports History....  Unfortunately for Urban, he is following a legend when it comes to OSU - Michigan.   No one before JT took over even dreamed we could beat Michigan 3 times in a row<ever again>... Tressel, rewrote the rivalry. 

I prefer Urban as the coach... but JT, Lebron, Jim Brown,  Jesse Owens, Jack Nicklaus, Buster Douglas All did things no one thought could be done...  Urban did it when it was expected...

as someone stated above... if OSU tampered with him while at Auburn... then I get it... I heard Fran McCaffrey(Iowa basketball) say that he absolutely will block a kid from transferring from his school to a school he felt like tampered with him.  At first when I heard him say it, I thought he sounded like an ASS, but the more I thought about it... He is right.   Just like I want more rights for the players.. .I also dont want a wild wild west, where suddenly every team that needs a DE starts calling our young DEs who may not have played right away...

I really feel like Holtmann will be the basketball Jim Tressel, which I think is awesome!!!... And I tried to tell my friends that getting Matta was like getting urban meyer, because everyone knew it was Matta+Oden.  To this day, I still think that was a bigger announcement(when you factor in Oden), than getting Urban.  The Urban coming to Ohio State was a known commodity even back in 2003.. people in the know, knew urban would coach at Ohio State one day..

But on with Holtmann...  I don't know enough about his program... But if he can be a program type guy where he has his system(I am going to say like Wisconsin, but that is a big reach) and plug in Ohio Talent... this could be an incredible 8 years... but I don't think it would be fair to ask for a run like Matta had his first 8 years...

The key statement in the article was ... " Things weren't getting better anytime soon."  most of us who follow the basketball program closely knew that to be true..  At some point all good things come to an end... As much as It should have ended back in February for the good of everyone, whether they wanted it or not... I am just thankful that Thad is not coaching next year.. that would have been a very  bad season and further tarnished his excellent career...  I realize there is a time to say the glass is half full, but that isnt all the time.. and as much as we all love thad... it is hard not to love the guy... eventually you have to take the keys away from your dad and tell him his driving has changed and he shouldn't do it anymore...

One correction, we fired an unhealthy Thad Matta.   We would not be having this conversation if Matta would have  not had the foot/back issue.   He may not have sustained his high level of success but we would have still been a top4-5 big program.  

Comment 05 Jun 2017

I really wish this could have been announced back in February so we could have celebrated all Matta had done during the ending  of a painful season....  But maybe there were just too many factors to permit that... But it is what I was hoping for back then, because you knew the end was near....

The program needs to move forward and that was obvious, but would have been nicer way to have an exit.

Golden State looked like a team that had been thinking about last years loss all year and brought that focus to game 1.  Cleveland looked a step slow, and some of the newbies looked overwhelmed in the finals...   I could easily see Cleveland losing by 30 in game 2.. but I still kind of like where we are at...  Hey if GS matches game 1, and Cleveland cant get everyone ready to play in the finals then we wont win... but I just have a feeling.. game 2 will be different... 

GS got a monkey off their back in game 1.  Had they lost that game even I would not want to watch sports center.. because the story would have been all about how GS is a failure etc. etc...  That was an absolute must win for GS... Kevin Durant's passing does scare the crap out of me.. did not realize he was that good.

It is good to be hopeful, but you are acting like we can not compare the current level of talent on the roster based on how they have played in the past or in High School and project how they will perform against the existing level of competition they will face...

There is always a chance any team could be like the 69 mets... but you can look at things based on existing data and project based on what we do know... This is the basis for every team in every sport every off season...

If there is a bright spot of fielding a team that is more MAC level than Big ten level... If they exceed expectations then give them credit... But you can walk down through the roster and see some of the players we have(and some of them are hard workers, they just are playing a level above where they probably should be playing.. at this point).  I just get this feeling a lot of the 'hopeful' people don't watch every ohio state basketball game let alone any other Big 10 basketball games when Ohio State is not playing...  

And my issues with How we have let the program implode and Matta should shoulder a lot of that blame... all of that aside... If we are going to have a rag tag team of guys forced to try to do more than they can at this level... I am all for letting Kam Williams be one of those guys because of his work ethic...

The program is a dumpster fire no matter how you want to spin it,  however; even if everything was going great.. I seriously doubt walker was ever coming here... Thad deserves a lot of criticism for the state of the program and probably a few kicks.. but not for letting this one get away.. 

As much as I just want this whole Matta era to end now, as it wont get better.. getting walkeron campus in MAY might be the biggest positive we have had until Kam Williams decided to stay...   But way too little ... way too late... But Ill tip my cap to some progress... 

Thad would have to make the sweet 16 within the next two years, before I would trust him enough to ride in the front seat of this basketball program without my seat belt on again...
