Was not the main attraction, but fun the last couple of years with the push up competitions, 40 yd sprints, and that time the alumni QBs came and did a longest heave demo. Not sure if that happened this year (had family obligations).
You might get a local band or two outside after, but I think they want ppl out of the Shoe asap to get it cleaned up and locked down.
Well, A-U-B-U-R-N *is* a lot of letters to remember...
Wesson needs to learn to play without the chicken wing... Or at least disguise it a little. I like Jallow's athleticism at the end of the year, hope Ahrens can learn to play in the defensive scheme. The future is bright!
Makes sense with couple new highly rated post players coming in. Hope we don't lose too much more but good luck to him.
Will be interesting to see if some of the role players transfer or have bought in to the coach/system. Lot of upside on that roster.
Holtmann recruited a CJ, DJ, and EJ?
Shut up and take my money
I like Holtmann in the coaching matchup, good chances if we can stay out of foul trouble.
Kansas is not Kansas this year.
I'd definitely rather play a team that doesn't shoot the three well tho.
Was that the Oden tourney run where we were down 20ish to both Xavier and Tennessee and came back to win on Ron Lewis's back?
That's the game now, with the 3pt line (or, Pats in the Sooper Bowl).
I saw a theory somewhere about only one Cleveland sorts team being able to be good at a time (exception, 2016). Hope this doesn't tank the Tribe...
Yeah, I worry about Mayfield's ability to manage a huddle with OBJ in it. But who knows. Maybe Landry can keep him under control. I just see another Keshawn Johnson complaining about not getting the ball enough.
New head coach
New QB, lack of depth at QB
Loss of #1 playmaker/safety valve/lightening in a bottle Campbell
Loss of other to WRs and RB
Question marks at LB and DL
The future is certainly bright, and we have a ton of talent/potential. I think in retrospect Campbell is as close to a Percy Harvin as we're seen in many years and his lots will be felt deeply. I wouldn't be happy with 9-3, but wouldn't be terribly surprised by it either, due to growing pains.
Not throwing him under the bus, but there games in a row we haven't scored a basket prior to the first tv timeout. I gotta put that on the coach for not having a go to play drawn up and ready, or a TO to settle the kids, or something to get the offense going. We see they can score at times so despite a lack of talent, this is not a co-rec squad. He squeezed blood from a turnip last year (granted with KBD), just seems bewildering why this year was so much worse down the stretch. Maybe there was less room for this team to improve compared to opponents. I don't think we've had a lead since the Iowa game. I put a lot of that on coaching. Happy to see what happens next year, but less convinced of his in game ability than his recruiting skills.
Not easier than either PSU or Illinois, they are hot right now.
Yeah. He's won a ton, but has me scratching my head a lot this year. Hope it's more that the older guys are just doing their own thing rather than a lack of control overall (example, Jackson fouling at the end of ot)
Lots of role players, not a lot of true scorers/finishers. I wondered why, when they were in the bonus with 8 mins left in the first half and NWs bigs on the bench, why we were wandering around the perimeter and having up 3s instead of going inside.
I like Holtmann in theory, but rapidly losing faith in him as a coach. (Yes, easy to say from the couch)
Beating Wiscy would get us in. We're likely to be the 8/9 seed, playing the MSU/UM winner should we advance, so not likely to get more than one. Might be enough, unless some of the mid majors pick up at large bids.
You can't win a game in the 70s if you can't get past the 50s.
The travel, should they get that far, is good for the younger kids.
2 for 21, with no basket til about 8 minutes in. Combined with the end of the last game going bucket-less for 5+ minutes... Ugh.
True... But I think the extreme futility is associated with the reborn Browns.
I often wondered why the Browns didn't take more Buckeyes, my only conclusion was that management didn't want to have to deal with fan backlash if they ever had to cut them. Would not have solved the QB situation to this point, but they missed on a lot of OSU talent the last 15 years.
Yeah, watching the bubble this year... Woof. No one seems to be asserting themselves. Remembering that Syracuse team that stormed through the big East tourney a few years back (Gerry McNamara?), It was fun watching a bad team with good talent got hot at the right time. I'd rather see hot teams, regardless of conference than "deserving". I'm not sure what to think about this OSU team, but CBS likes them and Minnesota... And sometimes Indiana... Can't be all bad. I think we get Rutgers in the B10 tourney, if they lose that is say they don't "deserve" to make the NCAAs.
Curious how long we went at the end of the first half without a bucket. There were a couple of free throws but it was a long time and only 6 baskets the whole half. Herns was intimidating but I think a lot was mental knowing Wesson wasn't playing. They've gone long stretches with him on the bench so it's not like they're not used to find deep on the bench. Had gotten hopeful after the last win that we might have some much needed outside shooting. Credit to Purdue, they were on and went for the kill.
