Nico Collins is their best receiver and he will be back. Granted, they don’t really have a qb who can throw it to him.

Comment 05 Jan 2020

Man if this team somehow gets Holmes and roche that would be amazing. Got to think number one team per season. We are strong at every position on offense and we’d address questions on defense with these additions. No glaring weaknesses with adding a second high level corner and an elite pass rush.

Would love it if he’s the same player. But at the same time he’s had so many surgeries and is going to be out of competitive basketball for two years. Wish we could see him a bit and make sure it’s not a Brandon Roy or something similar situation but I don’t mind taking a flyer on the guy.

That Lawrence only day out one play of the game was absurd. Either shows how bad Clemson’s medical staff is or that he clearly was fishing for a flag.  Refs completely bought it. What a disgrace.

Side note: how did Clemson allow tee Higgins back into the game after taking his helmet? Feel like based on that zero way should he have been able to play in the second half.

Yeah that td catch was tough. Hard to blame him. I just don’t understand why he tried to land on the ball and didn’t try to contort his body or try to tuck it away. He made a great catch there extending on a ball that was a little overthrown. I just thought the finishing of it was poorly done like he’s never tried making a diving catch before.

Let’s not lump giddens in with those two. He worked hard every minute he played. Wasn’t a great player but showed zero issues while here

Comment 22 Dec 2019

Won’t be surprised if carton is our best player come tournament time. Which would be perfect as guard play really shines then and takes you far into the tournament. He’s improved rapidly. Him and Liddell have been so impressive this year. Neither backing down or looking like the moments to big for them as it usually happens for freshman. Future looks bright for osu basketball.

Comment 10 Dec 2019

Definitely think he should redshirt at this point. Missed a good amount of no conference games that kind of are tune up before big ten play. Hard to jump into playing against big ten teams when you aren’t a great offensive player. Besides, he plays basically the same role that Andre Wesson does. Rather give him a year to tune up his game and develop. Should have already redshirted his freshman year but we needed bodies badly.

Plus, I love our 8 man rotation and it’s working so well. No reason to jeopardize it by trying to give someone else minutes when we are one of the best teams in the country.

Comment 09 Dec 2019

I don't think so. I watched their game against St. Johns and they have zero guards. The best one is a guy that is a freshman from Ohio that was ranked in the 250s or something. He's better than what he was ranked but still shouldn't be the best guard on any good college team. They have two really good big men though. One being from Culver who is from Ohio and didn't recruit although he was highly ranked.

He was underthrown two other times on deep balls also. Made a hell of a play on the third deep ball though that one wasn’t really fields fault as he had to avoid pressure before being able to throw it. Olave is really beating people and it’s obvious you can’t single cover him or he’s going to beat you.

Comment 23 Nov 2019

I only had a serious issue with that fourth down call. Take the points with haubeil. He’s proven to be a pretty good kicker. Give the guy a chance and go up two tds. Just didn’t get that play call at all.

Comment 20 Nov 2019

Again, I don’t understand why you keep bringing up cj and woods? I agree they aren’t as good as the two we have now. That’s obvious But that’s not the question. We aren’t choosing between the two we have now vs. last year. It’s who is the second most valuable player on this years team. We have two more than capable point guards at a position you really only need one. It’s a good luxury to have two but pgs don’t usually get in foul trouble or wear out like other positions. In contrast, we only have one proven option at pf where I’d say it’s just as if not even more important to have depth because those guys tire more easily and foul out. So again, I just don’t get how you can make the case that a position without proven depth is better to lose a guy than a position where we have some. Not like young isn’t producing some good stats either. Already has two double-doubles which is something neither walker or carton has done once.

Comment 19 Nov 2019

So you are saying you’d rather have no proven options at PF rather than just having one proven pg option. I’m going to have to heavily disagree with that. It’s great having two pgs of course but that is also the position of usually the teams most fit player who can play the most minutes. He can play the majority of the game, something most bigs can’t do effectively. Also, I’d argue Washington being a proven guard at this point. He’s a combo guard who played point for the majority of his high school career and shown he can take up the ball this year. Plus Kyle young is our backup center. You really want a raw Diallo playing a decent amount of minutes? I just don’t understand how you think losing young when we have no other proven option is equal to losing a player at a position we already have some depth in. And we for sure lose that cincy game without young. He kept us within single digits by himself in the first half.

Comment 19 Nov 2019

Those aren’t the options on this years team?!? So I don’t get your point. We already have two guys at point that have shown to be really capable in carton and Walker. I’d be much more fine with losing one of them and sliding Washington to play backup minutes than I would losing young and not really having any great proven option. I love liddell but he hasn’t shown enough to be a high end starter and so I still would rather have young than walker or carton. We need all the size we can get on this team and young plays backup center too which is our weakest position. So I’d strongly disagree with your take here.

Comment 15 Nov 2019

Ballard and Collins are two different types of receivers too so not really like they chose between the two. It was more of a choice between him and Harrison as the big bodied receiver for this class.
