Two highlights: the go ahead dunk at IU and the trailing block against an opponent I can’t remember. He can surprise with an athletic burst at times. Really pulling for him to fully become “poor man’s KBD” this season.
Totally agree except the rebound number is a little ambitious. I’d be very happy with 6/game.
Consistency from him will be essential on such a young team.
People think analytics created the trend to prefer threes over midrange twos. But the analysts just looked at what was actually happening. Most teams will score more shooting more threes than contested twos. After seeing the numbers, teams tried to do more of what worked. The quality of shooting drove the numbers first.
Fondly remember the four corners? I appreciate Phil Ford’s handles. But the four corners offense sucked. I much prefer the shot clock era to that abomination to basketball.
A mind is a terrible thing.
I have no data on this, but I think defenders contest the twos harder. Plus it’s easier to draw a foul further out because everyone can see since there are fewer bodies and more space.
He would kick Napoleon Dynamite’s ass
I do not want Taylor Martinez. I would take Adrian Martinez. ; )
Chris Olave played last year, so...
I agree. If they wanted to do a sit a year transfer this is the year to do it, like Sueing did.
You got a dv but you may be right. I could see Kaleb going overseas when Andre graduates. Definitely a hunch, but his eyes look to he in the next step.
Seems way to early to predict that about Meechie. And not sure the choice is him or Furst. I would think it would be Furst or Duncomb. They will definitely need a PG in this class.
As another one in your camp, the unworried don’t say too much about it.
He came across with a great attitude in your piece. Btw lots of good Ohio PGs the next couple of cycles. I don’t know how you bring in all of them and create time for everyone. Let’s hope we have such high class problems.
Great update! I love that there seems to be rise in the quality of Ohio talent to coincide with the rise in Chris Holtmann’s program and recruiting profile. And the difficulty trying to predict just how many people you need in any single class only makes you want all of them in the fold. While 2021 will clearly be a strong year, very curious how 2020 ends up with the need to be more selective because of the numbers crunch.
Fans have been slow to return to VCA which leads me to believe there are other issues at play. But it’s time for Buckeye Nation to put up or shut up. This is a great schedule and an intriguing team. Go to the games locals!!! I’ll hold up my end at the RAC and MSG!
Nah, they think that when they see Don Brown.
Above should be “wasn’t a waste of time”
Let’s not be too sensitive. The article said it all. Fields has tremendous upside, but he hasn’t started a game in cfb. If I’m a coach, I want that guy fighting for the position and to prove he’s not all hype without substance. And I want Hoak to feel like this transfer was a waste of time. This keeps him engaged.
And if Fields is half the player we think he is, he’ll rise to the challenge and become a better player.
And that’s ok. There should be a place for shooters as well as athletic freaks.
Welcome to Buckeye Nation, Mr. Seibert!!!
I think that’s still too much - “utmost importance.”
It would definitely be a good sign. But I’ve watched too much OSU football to put that much emphasis on even three recruits. There are always other options. And that’s no disrespect to their talent because they’re all good players.
I thought the same about Jones. Wow. If that guy develops, you’ve got a monster.
