That's a good one:  the "omg NO blue!!" thing is immature and dumb

I will wear blue and yellow but almost never together!

I look down on people who didn't graduate from OSU and still are fans

I look down on people who think that only people who graduated from a particular institution can be fans of said institution! I graduated from Kent State and am all Buckeye - Football and Basketball: no rooting for kentucky, duke, or north carolina, here - and the only time I root for Kent State is if they happen to make it to March Madness. If they were to play Ohio State I hope Ohio State demolishes them!

1). I dislike ALL Cleveland sports teams more than I dislike TTUN!

2). I like doing the OH-IO chant in the stadium, but I hate doing it outside of that. (I will post an O-H on Facebook/twitter on game day)

I'm not sure why this is a HUGE shock. He had committed to Matta and his staff and had that relationship built, just as Kyle Young decided to come to Ohio State because of the relationship he had built with Holtmann and staff. It may just take Holtmann and his staff working to build that relationship in order to get him back on board. It is disappointing, but not the end of the world. Give the new staff some time to work.

I wish I could up-vote this more than once, good sir!

Take note of Earle's post her, OhioPraise!

This is how you critique a hire and post about it. You don't have to be over-joyed about this but at least be willing to give the new coach a shot just like we did with Thad 13 years ago. Contrary to many opinions on the boards the last few days Gene Smith hasn't suddenly forgoten how to manage the OSU Athletic Department. Can we criticize the timing, certainly, but truth be told many of us have been asking for him to make a change in the basketball program. He gave Thad a chance to recruit this spring and when Thad failed Gene had to do it regardless of timing. I for one would rather see Gene Smith err on the side of loyalty as it seems he did with Thad.

Good luck to Coach Holtmann as you start your new journey as the head basketball coach at THE Ohio State University!

Comment 08 Jun 2017

This coaching 'search' is a perfect illustration of the VAST difference between OSU football and basketball

A couple things:

1).This is the same AD that hired Urban Meyer

2). The same AD that oversees a hugely successful athletic department that has won multiple championships in multiple sports

Can we quit criticizing Gene for just a moment and let him do his job? Nobody at OSU has ever confirmed that McDermitt was offered the OSU basketball position. For all we know ESPN made a mistake... or, McDermitt just wanted an easy pay raise.

Comment 08 Jun 2017

We don't know that he turned OSU down. Maybe Gene didn't make him the offer.

My thoughts exactly! It is all speculation at the moment and until we here something from Gene Smith or an OSU spokesman that's all it will be.

Comment 06 Jun 2017

Hmm, the list of candidates seems either completely unrealistic or completely uninspiring

I may be wrong but I have not seen Gene's "wish list" of replacements for Thad. All these other lists are pure speculation at the moment. My guess is Gene has a good idea of who he want to replace Thad with and has some certainty that he will be able to lure him here.

It doesn't seem real. Does anyone in this country even care anymore, you wonder aloud. It cannot possibly get worse tomorrow than it was today, you assure yourself. At some point the people still defending this disaster will finally come around and realize there needs to be an intervention, you earnestly tell the poor counter clerk trying to take your Waffle House order.

Why in the hell are we still tolerating this, you scream into the darkness each night.

I seriously though this was going a different direction!
