Lots of solid performances from Kaleb, Andre, Walker, Muhammad, and Washington. DJ finally looked like a freshmen, but good growth for him.
Love seeing Andre play like this
2012 has to be higher. That was OSU’s bowl game and finished a very rare undefeated season
If I would describe any player on this basketball team as a fighter, it’s certainly Luther Muhammad. His defense always shows up. And he’s expanded his offensive game this season. As long as he and Washington maintain consistency on both ends, this team has a very high ceiling.
OSU’s average player rating was very high. The recruiting ranking was lower than usual because there were fewer available spots.
While Carton’s game but he doesn’t look ready yet, he could be by the end of the season. Better to be prepared than to get caught flat footed like when DLo developed into a high first round talent and we weren’t prepared for him to leave.
Well that’s what happens when you lose to a 25-point dog at home. They’ll move up during the season.
Such a great point. But after last season, I think people react to possible issues very quickly.
He’s out there because he’s a good 3-point shooter and a good passer. Plus it opens driving lanes for guards
For the reasons you said, Holtmann clearly knows something that he can’t share now. He wouldn’t over sign otherwise.
Yes! Thank you! RU did beat UM!
Rutgers is bad, very bad. But they could be a middle of the pack B1G program. I think less Northwestern and more Indiana. And their recruiting base is better than IU’s. Is Schiano the guy to do it? I guess we will see
Please show up OSU and Cbus!!! I’ll be on a plane from Boston to LA so hopefully I’ll catch the radio call on WiFi.
Thank you, Iowa. I saw that headline and said, “oh, come on.” That Rutgers/Princeton game is generally acknowledged as the first CFB game. Who cares that the rules have changed over time.
And yes, Rutgers sucks. But people forget that they actually beat our rival in Brady Hoke’s final season. They will never win this conference, much less the east division. They could definitely become as good as Indiana though. Plus their membership in the B1G guarantees that I get to see the Buckeyes every two years less than an hour from home
Nova brings a lot of size across the lineup. Many guys in the 6-7 to 6-9 range. Very interested to see how the team responds to that, as well as a distinct uptick in the talent of the opposition
Disagree about the effort. I don’t think that’s the kind of thing you turn on and off. Some guys and some teams do it, or they don’t. I like the willingness to get on the floor.
Read that he’s out of the boot and in sneakers again. That’s a good development for Musa.
I’d skip your HS reunion if I was you
Kudos to the unsung guys. Young was a monster on the offensive glass and very efficient on offense. Andre was great on Cumberland, who was 3-10 when Andre had to leave the game. Washington made some key baskets in the second half. And while he struggled big in the first half, Walker was nails at the line down the stretch. Lots of contributions from a variety of players to gut out the win. A win that will probably look very pretty come Tournament time.
Because - look at the second half stats
I live in the town right next to Irvington and I can vouch for how tough it is. It’s a testament to him and his family that Luther is where he is right now. He’ll never be an explosive scorer, but if he can develop a consistent jumper, he will play a lot because his defense will always be valuable
If this was humor, it was a swing and a miss. If he meant to troll, it was a home run. I’ve read nothing about LJ retiring either here or on other sites
It’s not like JTB was expected to be a starter in 2014. And Cardale had the job for the taking in 2015, but the pressure of having JTB behind him seemed to mess with his head. JTB did not have arm talent of Cardale or the legs of Braxton, but he was a survivor. That made him very difficult to supplant.
I think we’re allowed to enjoy the experience as it’s happening too.
The second half reminded me of Ron Burgundy’s famous quote: Boy, that escalated quickly.
82 - 48 OSU
Hummer and Hookfin are both in the game
