It was a brutal second half...I think I saw where there were 19 missed layups in the last 2 games.  To me this is a mental thing, you don't play college BBall and miss layups.  Need to get out of our own head, get a little confidence back and win on Wednesday.  

Some may say we are really bad, but I truly don't believe we are "that" bad.  here's to hoping it changes on wednesday

This coming from the guy who refers to our center as Fat Kaleb???  Are you the same person, or is someone hacking your keyboard.  I find it hard to hear your coming at someone for saying stuff about Russell when you were saying some of the most hateful stuff I have ever heard on here aimed at college students...

You cannot talk out both sides of your head and have people expect to hear you!

Keyshawn is a conundrum to me.  How you can average the shooting he averaged the last few years in the ACC, which is in my opinion a pretty strong conference, and now struggle...I don't know?

I keep hoping he will find his groove and carry this team to March, but the rose petals are falling fast if it is going to happen.  Here is to hoping he finds his shot and helps us get a W tomorrow.

I would agree that Aaron Craft's jumper was not good, yet he was still able to get to the basket and score or get fouled.

I am saying between his defense, his assists, and his ability to get to the hoop would make him worlds better than the PG we have on our team.  If Craft was our PG, CJ could play off ball and slay people.

I would be willing to say that if Craft was our PG right now..instead of being 16-8, we would be at least 19-5 or better.  In fact, we might even be leading the conference, or at least in the Top 3.  MD, MSU, Iowa, Purdue, Rutgers and ILL all had TO issues...having someone who can create extra possessions rather tahn giving the other team extra possessions and these games maybe go the other way.

What I am saying is that even though Craft didn't have a jumper, he was one of the best PG OSU has had in the last 25 years because of everything else he did to help the team win.

I'm sorry, but I strongly disagree with you.  Aaron Craft understood he didn't have a jumper, but still managed to average 9.5ppg his final 3 seasons.  All the while, he had a 2.13:1 Assist to TO ratio, which only one other player since Craft has done, and that was CJ Jackson 2 seasons ago.  Add to the fact that Craft averaged more than 2 steals per game every season he played, including his freshman year where he didn't start.  His lowest total for a season was 73...the most anyone has had in the last 5 years...Jae'Sean Tate last year with 36, which means Craft created at least 37 more possessions for his teams per season than any other player to play for the Buckeyes since Craft left.  

So I have to strongly disagree with you....even with a "flat" "ineffective"(FIFY) jumper...he still would be a major upgrade to the majority of guards on our roster.  If by some chance you can find some stats to give a different perspective, I am more than willing to dialogue.

I would be okay with this lineup, but not necessarily for 16 minutes per game...that's quite a lot.  When Washington is averaging 16 minutes per game currently.  

CJ isn't as much of a TO machine as people think he is.  He is averaging 2.7 TO per game with a 1.2 Ast/TO ratio...while not great, he isn't the sole cause of the TO in a game.  Factor in that when he is in the game, he is touching the ball probably 2-3 times more often than any of the other players(the role of a PG), factor that in and his TO would be .9-1.3 per game, which only Washington is lower at 1.18 per game and he is playing half the minutes CJ is.

Kaleb has 2.25 per game, Lu is 1.5, Dre is 1.7, Washington is 1.18 and Woods is 1.37.  

Not saying CJ doesn't turn the ball over, just saying he isn't the TO machine that everyone says he is.  

I would love to see Ahrens get some more minutes, but I also trust that what Holtmann sees in practice everyday has him not yet ready to give those advance minutes to Ahrens.  I believe when the time is right, it will happen.
