Fun fact about John Beilein: the guy has NEVER been an assistant coach. True story. He's the only guy I've ever heard of with that kind of resume. He has worked his way up from high school to community college to Division III to Division II to lower level Division I programs to the major conference programs West Virginia and Michigan - and now the NBA. And he's never been an assistant coach.

Cronin is a Cincy guy who's never been anywhere outside of the Ohio-Kentucky area as a coach (UC, Louisville, Murray State). Who knows if he will be able to recruit guys there. The UCLA job, like Indiana and some others, isn't what it used to be - so instead of a Calipari level coach, you get Calipari (and Rick Barnes) using the job as leverage and you end up with Mick Cronin.

The media is painting the whole thing as a domestic violence issue, which in my opinion, that is one piece of a much bigger pile of crap that included pretty much everything Zach Smith said or did while employed by Ohio State.

Number 9. Number 9. Number 9. Number 9.

Beatles fans might get that reference...

I know OSU has already played 2 conference games (for some reason, I'm not sure exactly why?), but with the non-conference schedule winding down, do you have a prediction for where the Buckeyes finish in the Big Ten?

Comment 20 Dec 2017

I don't like it, but I get it. I know kids who picked teams other than OSU to root for growing up because OSU was all over the place all the time everywhere you went. Carman's been assumed to play at OSU for a long time and he took a different route. Probably didn't like that everyone just assumed he was gonna play for Urban. And with Clemson being one of the top programs in the country right now, he went with Dabo. We'll see how it goes.

I don't know. The pundits say he has turned 2 programs around (Western Kentucky & South Florida) and that he should be able to do big things at a place like Florida State.

He has turned down offers before. And I thought I'd heard something about Whittingham being Mormon, played football @ BYU, and being content with his job at Utah and living in Salt Lake City when he was considered for some openings in the past.
