CJ Stroud!!! - Man, this class is stacked! Lets get Phillips and Martinez signed and then get ready to roll!
I was wondering if anybody else saw that ...Every 50/50 out of bounds call went Cincy's way even with clear video evidence to the contrary. Pretty poorly officiated game in my opinion. I'm glad we were able to weather the "8 on 5" storm and pull out the victory in a hostile environment.
I feel like this is the type of team a guy like Tom Izzo made his name with. Starting off slow with the integration of new players and then hitting on all cylinders and peaking come March when it is time to make a run.
There is talent on this squad. How it all fits together is yet to be seen, but I think (despite early season ups and downs) they will be ready to make some noise come tourney time. It will be fun to watch and see how they all grow together along the way.
This is Urban being confident that he did nothing wrong, probably has evidence to that effect, and knowing that he should not have been suspended in the first place ...
I hope Brett McMurphy has a lawyer lined up.
Why was this article written???
I would add Aaron Craft's name somewhere in that "The Rest" grouping ...He was an important catalyst for those Buckeye teams from 2010 to 2014. He was a lockdown defender for us at the point guard position. Probably one of the best we had on defense there during the Thad Matta era.
Defense and rebounding will win this game tomorrow night. And especially against their 7'-2" guy. (Isaac Haas) Kaleb Wesson and Micah Potter are really going to have their work cut out for them. They are each giving up 5" to the guy. So foul trouble might rear it's ugly head again in this one. Purdue is a big team with length. They'll give you fits. They are the class of the B1G right now. This is going to be a good test for this Buckeye team to see where we are at, and what we have to do to get to where we want to go.
I sit here today in awe of "Philly Fan" ...And not in a good way.
I approve of this.
