  • SPORTS MOMENT: 2002 National Championship team is a no-brainer...I'll go with Evan Turner's last second, near-half court shot as time expires to beat TSUN in the BIG tourny. Unbelievable, and I loved Thad Matta giving TTUN's coach an earful - rumored to be in regards to him not voting for Turner as player of the year.
  • COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYER: Braxton Miller, but other Buckeyes are fast approaching..
  • NFL TEAM: Brownies
  • NHL TEAM: Blue Jackets, I guess?
  • NBA TEAM: Cavs
  • MLB TEAM: Indians

Yep - I think Holtman is spot on with his comments about Wesson returning today - "he just has to be Kaleb."  Kaleb's likely dying to get back on the court, but he needs to play composed and not get three fouls in 10 minutes.

And that resume has to be huge, if you're correct.  I won't go through my years-ago accomplishments, but I was honestly surprised at what you must do to get in, because I was not accepted by two Ivy League schools, and thought I had a reasonable chance.

It couldn't have worked out better in the end, though, because I became a Buckeye.

Can't wait for that read.  I know I've read the new coaches want to make things simpler, but this new hybrid position, and your mentioning of the current fluidity worries me.  Hopefully our guys catch on quick!

I agree with Brutus B, and I'd also like to say that, IMO, you can't ignore Urban's ability as a "builder of men" either.  In no way do I think Woody wins that part of the job by a landslide, if at all

This has been mentioned multiple times, but there's absolutely a factor if you weren't alive during Woody's time.  I was not and that, coupled with the era we have now where every game is on TV or watchable via the internet, and every interview is readable and watchable, I feel I really know Urban well, and I love him.

I've only heard stories of Woody, and although I love what I hear, I still don't feel like I know​ him.

My heart wants to say Urban, but I still gotta go with Woody.  Urban is like Woody-b.  Very similar IMO, both very motivational, both good at coaching up good quality men.  But only 7 years form Urban...there's just no comparison in that regard.
