I've noticed in several articles about the 2019 draft and this story about Tracy Sprinkle that you have referred to these men as "former" Buckeyes.  I graduated from THE Ohio State University in 1965, and consider myself a Buckeye for Life.  Seems like you guys at Eleven Warriors need to be reminded about that and STOP saying former Buckeye...How about former player instead ?  Thanks for your consideration.

PLEASE STOP, STOP DOING THIS !!!  EVERY GAME is Tough!!!  The coaches and players DO read this stuff, and get "comfortable" if a particular game didn't make your list (remember, Iowa and Purdue ?!).  On any given day, any team can beat another team....why do you want to contribute to the potential of looking past any team and be more vulnerable ???

Very, very disappointed in this team.  Making the same mistakes made earlier in the season.  No LEADER among the players on the floor who is respected and listened to and followed.  Our big man is in foul trouble in every game after about 10 minutes into the game...what kind of coaching is he getting ?!  Really awful defense--our guys just didn't have a clue about where to be/what to do....Offensively, we have no scheme, no strategy and nobody who can make baskets consistently.  This is a very poor representation of an Ohio State team (any sport) and an embarrassment to see them on a national TV broadcast.  Suspect the impact on recruiting will be very negative.

Every team in the Country has lots of "young players" in this era of "one and done" so that excuse doesn't cut it for me. We have NO OFFENSIVE Scheme.  We don't have the Bigs needed to compete in the Big Ten, and we are miserable shooters from the three point line.  The guys play a frenetic style of defense, which is good, but can't keep up that pace for an entire game.

No team (or coaches) have anything to worry about when they play the Buckeyes.  We have not made up for our weaknesses by playing our strengths, let the kids just play street ball, and hope for some great recruiting next year.

All the BEST of Good Luck as you pursue your career goals, Mike.  You demonstrated the attributes that will continue to make you a success whatever you do in the future.  You will always be remembered in a very positive way by Buckeye Nation---and you will always be part of it.  GO Bucks !  Go Mike Weber !!
