I don't think you can judge Thad on this years team. They are so young. I am a Thad fan but I struggle to defend him when it comes to the player improvement complaints. If this team gets better by the end of the year and improves significantly over the summer that is all you can ask. I especially want to see the big men get better. They are both athletically gifted bigs with a lot of upside. Thad actually installed a press last night which is a big move for him. It was a just a token press at times but I loved it. It gets the other team off kilter at times. I hope he keeps the pressure on. He has a deep bench this year with capable backups at every position. 

I think Harris will get more minutes going forward. He pushes the ball up the court and jump starts our offense into a faster pace. Lyle backing the ball up the court is too slow in my opinion. By the time the window wiper weave offense gets going it is too late causing a lot of bad looks to beat the buzzer.

From what I saw and heard from the Walsh game, Lyle was very vocal. I was sitting on the court and he was shouting directions to teammates on and off the ball on every possession. I was impressed by how vocal he was and how he ran the offense. Thompson played with a little attitude in the post. He was a little inconsistent but looked the part of an aggressive BIG center. Only a one exhibition game but that is what I took away from the game. I think Lyle will be a good on court leader. Loving still looked "lazy". He had a great game but just doesn't seem to be totally in tune. I would expect Tate to be a leader as well but he didn't play.

I'm definitely a lurker. I only read on and off at work and don't want to get involved in long conversations over the internet. I love the articles and I really like to the insight into all Buckeye information especially recruiting details. But hey, I paid for my gold pants. Shouldn't I be allowed to lurk?

I don't think we lacked depth in the front court since 2012. We lacked talent. Amir Williams was just bad (and hard to watch) and Trey McDonald hustled his but off but wasn't much better. Two good to average big men is enough in the OSU scheme. I don't see Bell getting a lot of playing time this year or next year once Potter gets here.  Bell will be the 4th big man off the bench.

Weis was just as bad. 41 and 49 as a head coach. Always seem to shed the blame on his players. I hated listening to his post game interviews.

Don't forget that every team we play at least in the conference has very talented starters. Often we have close games at half time only to assert our depth advantage on the other teams. We simply wear them out to a point that they can't keep up. This is power football at its best. I try not to get nervous when we are in a close game at half time or early in the 3rd quarter. I know we are going to impose our will on the other team as the game goes on.

I remember a day when he could do it. Not very well but he could do it.

Congrats Matt! Maybe you can learn to putt with two hands on the putter some time soon?
