It does have a good look.
Trying to keep excitement about Buckeye basketball in check for a bit longer. But am anxious to see if the up swing is a trend or not. Fully expect to be surprised again this year by a better than expected year!
Beat everyone, in every sport, all the time!!!
Always good to have backup plan.
It just getting started. Now to coach them up.
So appreciative of the efforts to write this column. BB recruiting news has been hard to come by recently and this product keeps it front and center.
I think we land Lidell. Holtmann is focused.
Say what you want about Gene Smith, but the man has a golden touch in hiring head coaches.

And just think. MANY MANY posters on this very board was trashing the hiring last July. SMH
Pretty certain that was not true at all. People were trashing them going after McDermott. People were pretty relieved and happy it was holtmann.
That is exactly what happened.
UMMM no. Posters trashed Gene for hiring Holtmann
I think the sentiment was more a lamenting that if he'd have axed matta sooner, they could have had the golden child miller. They both seem to be good coaches who are recruiting at a high level now. Those games will be barn burners as they used to say, in the coming years, with all the talent going to each school. Indiana has the built in advantage of having better talent than ohio, and being the favorite bb school in IN. but Holtmann has had some good pulls out of state and there is some good talent in ohio in the next three classes. Mix that with an occasional out of stater and you have a top twenty team regularly.
Newman would also be an intriguing prospect as a potential thriebler. Indiana produces a lot of excellent Bball talent. Let's hope we can land Liddell...
