 I think they'll get the 3 best ohio players and hope they supplement them with one of the best players in In. 6-10 furst. I think he really likes H. 

Comment 18 May 2019

He wasn't starting with everyone back, maybe not with the three leaving. But he also said um was still in consideration.

Pg is the one position that they aren't recruiting this year. He could always grad in 3 years and transfer to osu like his dad did, if his dad is still here. And if he rs, he'd have two years left. 

Dain dain seems like the most likely of the guys that would actually commit. There's guys that are higher on the list, but unlikely.

Izzo's flirted with the nba just like beilein did, he seems tired. If he can get a title this year he may hang it up. When a coach starts berating his players, and publicly at that, his time is coming to a close. 

Interesting factoid, only two big coaches have won the regular season or the tournament.

A hoop legacy doesn't mean they'll go to osu. Francis is going to nc, although his ranking dropped drastically. He may transfer some day if he doesn't sniff the court. Wessons are legacies. Sully's brother hooped at osu too. His son is coming of age, don't know his talent level yet. 

Comment 18 May 2019

Actually if their players were to stay 3-4 years, they'd actually have better records, than starting over every year. There's going to be less than a dozen high school players going pro in most years. I don't know what they are going to do with the guys that aren't drafted, can they still go to school? Do you really think a guy that will be 75  when the cba is changed, will go to the nba? A retirement home, maybe?

I think barne's connection to osu is liddell, they played aau together, and he said he loved playing with him. There doesn't seem to be a real effort by osu to recruit him as hard as others. When they have a class of 4, they should be top ten, like this year, and '21.

Comment 18 May 2019

It's going to be just as hard as getting the best player out of iowa or illinois was. But it's doable. With diebler, I'd put it at 30-40 %, add in coach h. and I'd make it 50/50. That's not a bad shot with a player that's a baller and a mauler. But he has to visit first, then they get their shot at the 50/50. He was seriously considering vandy because of diebler, he's seriously considering osu for the same reason. Basketball wise in '20, one is not the same as the other.

That JUST 15.5 points a game in the nba will get you about 20 million a year for six years, so only $120 million. The lad is going to get a nice contract his next up. He's going to get 9 mill next year which will make him the 49th best paid guard and the 111th best in the nba. It looks like 20-21 is his next contract which will more than double what he's making now. Poor kid.

I don't know that the big two would bring in near as much money-per school, as the big does now. But as everything is cyclical, it's best for the whole, that there is a big, rather than a big two. But maybe nd and texas would say, look again, it works for us. 

I think if one notes that there are only a max of 2-3 revenue producers per school and extrapolates that to 2-3 bell cow institutions per conference, that the point is apples to apples. It's not like there will ever be 14 revenue producing sports, no more than there will ever be 14 institutions leading a conference. The 2-3 will change from decade to decade, but there are some consistent leaders, as there are laggers. I don't hear many calls for Purdue to leave the league these days. Rutgers is fun for some to pick on, perhaps they'll have their day in the sun as well. I certainly wish them all the time they need.

LOL Tell the 4 guys ahead of Stevens, that he's the frontrunner. They'll get a laugh out of you too. 

Interesting choice for a transfer, he's the same coach that picked mccsorley over him to start with. But what's the chances you are going to start at a school as a 5th year, when you've never started at any other time?

Comment 18 May 2019

He's definitely passionate. It seems he must have his media connected to everything associated with osu. Which makes sense since that's his job, but I like how in depth he goes. 

Comment 17 May 2019

I was listening to some of jardy's podcasts for osu basketball, they are interesting and relevant. If anyone can access them, they are well worth your time. It seems he does one every week, so as things move along with osu, they are updated. His most recent cast had info about sueing and etzler, always interesting to get another view on how things progressed to signing or verballing.
