basketball is a lot of fun when shots are going in. That's what I saw. That, and the offense might be better with Kaleb off the floor. Carton, when he begins to reduce his turnovers, will be one the best players in the conference. His is as explosive ( athletic ) as anyone I've seen in while.

When your opponent consistently shoots a high percentage , it's more than just " they were really hot, they shot the lights out " , it is poor defense. I agree with others that offensively, too much emphasis is put on running the sets through Kaleb. K. Wesson struggles to finish against length in the post. If his opponent is taller and or leaps better than him, he will miss alot of shots in close. Anyone who has played bball knows how challenging it can be to finish at the rim against shot blockers, K Wesson is not different. Holtmann needs to reconsider his approach offensively. Defensively, the young guys get lost too often and don't recognize the shooters. Holtmann is a good defensive coach, that he has proven. The D will improve I believe.

 I agree with some others that this group has not responded well to physical play . WV, Wisky, and now Maryland come to mind. That seems to be the way to disrupt the OSU offense , be physical. Some posters have been critical of Holtmann, maybe Quadrian Banks should have some criticism pointed his direction.

 I have trust in Holtmann. He knows more about his team than we do. Maybe some of the guys on the bench, Gaffney, Diallo, etc , just are not ready to contribute yet. Remember, defense is the coach's first priority and I'm sure that is the major factor in playing time. I also would like to see  9-10 man rotation, but Holtmann must have his reasons.  We know he would " prefer " to go deeper into the bench

 There's a reason why Herbie has been ESPN's #1 analyst all these years : he is really good. I find him to be very objective and insightful on every game he calls, including OSU.

Comment 05 Jan 2020

 I fully expect Holtmann to get this figured out and the Bucks will finish in the top 5 in the conference. Wisky is a tough matchup for alot of teams, especially young groups . The Badgers deliberate pace and physical toughness bothered the young Bucks

Comment 05 Jan 2020

It was obvious from the outset, that this would be a tough matchup for the Bucks. Wisky's deliberate pace, slug it out style makes things difficult for alot a teams, especially young team. Ohio State is not a physical team,( with the exception of Young and Mohammed ) .  The game vs West Virgina gave opponents the blueprint on playing OSU. But, Holtmann will figure it out. I have tremendous faith in his ability to make the necessary adjustments. I still think the Bucks finish in the top 5 in the conference

Comment 14 Oct 2019

 I admire Kaleb Wesson's determination to make it to the NBA. Losing weight is not easy for anyone and it appears he has worked very hard on his game to reach his dreams. But...... the pro game has changed so much in the past few years. A 6' 9" player needs to able to defend on the perimeter in pick and roll situations and be a 3pt threat offensively. Kaleb, is a skilled low post player with good hands, similar to ,  but not the same as ,Jared Sullinger . It is difficult to imagine Kaleb's game translating  to today's NBA. I hope he has improved enough to get a good look overseas. He can have a good career there.

Fields took alot of hits in this game . The O line struggled protecting him early in the game. That Sparty D is legitimately very good. Fields could probably do more damage running the ball, but I'm glad he doesn't . That short TD run in the second half , he got belted. Good thing he is big young man. Dobbins ( and Teague ) both ran extremely hard. I really like OSU's tailbacks. I was in the 'Shoe and I was impressed by the crowd. They were into it. Gonna need that energy against Wisconsin and Penn State, too

Biggest game these guys have played in since turning professional. High stakes, pessure packed basketball. Let's see who plays loose and confident , or who plays tight. Really looking forward to watching tonight. Hoping Diebler has a breakout game behind the arc. He is due
