You arent wrong. Craft is an anomaly, a grey area for my comment. He did so many other things that made up from his point guard deficits. He was a great Buckeye, but he wasn’t a good offensive point guard. He was surrounded by a high level of talent.
In the preseason and early games many here were throwing out Carton being a one-and-done type player. He will be a good one, just further away than we need him to be.
IMO opinion the thing that has plagued OSU hoops, really since Mike Conley left, is a true, dribble drive, make your teammates better, scoring threat PG. To shorten that, a good PG.
I watch this team play slow through Wesson and falter offensively when the possessions matter. No creativity. Again, this is due to not having dynamic PG.
I don’t see it. Guys recruited as shooters, maybe. Guys consistently knocking down shots, no.
Two things we seem to have been missing for years. Guys that can dribble drive and kick. And shooters. Good ole reliable jump shooters.
And it wasn’t like JK had a plodding season where you were shocked he had 2,000 yards. Dude had highlight-worthy runs nearly ever single week, including in our biggest games.
Not sure why I snagged some downvotes for commenting on the nature of the subject considering each and every offseason this subject pops up and it is widely agreed it is in poor taste and can teeter into subjects that warrant MODs closing post.
One of my favorite moments, and it is so insignificant, was from The Game in Ann Arbor. JT runs left, jukes a defender, Zeke gets out front and lays a block on Peppers. The block helicopters Peppers into the air. I don’t even remember if JT scored on that play, because the juke and block were just so awesome.
Growing up is not the problem. It is the subject matter of the post. Not cool.
PSU is under and will continue to be under the shadow of “It”. I am not going to go self-righteous and say this type of behavior doesn’t happen or some form of it isn’t happening in high schools and colleges as we speak. However, this particular program shouldn’t tempt fate with anything bordering on hazing, sexual pranks, etc. And if it does happen, the coaching staff and administration should tackle it with zero tolerance.
Being reported it was fake $
JT in that Penn State was amazing in the second half. After we won I ran out my front door screaming running up and down my neighborhood.
59-0 victory over WI was great as a collective....Cardale, Devin Smith, Zeke, Bosa, etc.
Might be recent history, but JK had so many great individual performances. His first game at Indiana when we needed him more than we should have and any 4-5 from this season. Shame he didn’t make an honorable mention.
He really did in the first half. At times he was toying with them. Then...the momentum shifted.
We all need to stop talking about what we do right and Michigan does wrong. Eventually someone is going to catch on or take notes.

Solid start Coach Day (and team)
I like the breakdown.
A quick comment on Dax Hill. Dude got torched by Bama, multiple times. And didn’t really do much against us. The potential seems to be there.
My opinion differs with you at QB and RB.
McCaffrey couldn’t beat out Shea and struggled when he played and is quite injury prone.
RB will improve with experience, but neither returning back was impressive.
I was thinking the same thing. They had Grochek contribute at RB and AJ Taylor was a nice wide out. I think they have high hopes for Nakia Watson at RB.
Consults 3 dozen other forum posts about the subject.
Consensus says - Teague will be solid, will run behind a potentially great offensive line, Fields will open up running lanes, Teague may need help and a change of pace would help.
KJ Hill on offense and Fuller on defense.
Dorsey made some mistakes along the O-line and at Safety, but overall he has accumulated talent - guys with name recognition - and had good drafts. He also did something no other GM has done - he created a buzz around the Browns.
I think this move will set the Browns back. I wonder if Dorsey didn’t want to co-sign Haslam’s plans and opted to leave.
I don’t think any of the DBs you listed flashed greatness. Potential, yes.
Defensive backfield, followed by linebacker after that RB are the primary concerns. We know we have some potential at LB and Teague seems like a legit BIG 10 back. Can he be elite? We will find out, but I feel we will need a compliment to him to help him out.
With Fields and Day I am confident we will be in the mix again next year.
I have seen Wade consistently in the first round in most mock drafts.
Proctor looked lost and got spun around a few times. He will mature and improve.
My MI in-laws keep texting me ‘karma’. I don’t think they understand the meaning of the word.
I don’t know but next time Herbie and Fowler announce a game I will be watching with the volume off. Good gravy, did they kiss Clemson ass. I think they went 1.5 quarters without even discussing OSU football or OSU’s side of the game.
