    It's sad that they didn't walk the talk.

    He played more than one season. Conley starts on a playoff team, and has won a playoff series. Turner was coming off the bench on an historically bad team.

    A very strong argument can be made that the only reason that Ohio State lost to Florida in the championship game was Conley getting in foul trouble early.

    FYI. UD has 6 wins in a row against the ACC.

    That's pretty impressive, actually. I'm glad the Flyers won tonight, mostly because I hate Syracuse almost as much as I hate Dook.

    You can come back to Ohio State for football season. You won't be the only one. :smug:

    15 of those wins were against the easiest OOC schedule osu has had in years.

    Technically, I'd say 13 - Marquette and Notre Dame were legit opponents - but your point still stands. It was fool's gold.

    A guy I work with is a Syracuse grad. He asked me today who the Buckeyes play next. After the game tonight, it felt REALLY good asking him who the Cuse plays next.

    Dayton coach Archie Miller’s wife, Morgan, wears a shirt that we can all support

    [​IMG]

    We’re not trying to be lecherous here. It’s that shirt that we love so much. High Life is trustworthy and crisp, a relic of American taste as the craft beer snobs, excuse me “experts,” crowd our bar taps. Heck, High Life is a lot like Dayton itself. The Flyers lack pretention and are pretty unrefined (on offense, at least). Who knows where Morgan made that shirt, but it’s awesome nonetheless. She’s the champagne of basketball wives.:rofl:

    WyoBuck...your summary is on the money, but even more so is the uncertainty of what next year holds. The void at Center is key in my mind. Your big guy HAS to occupy part of the other teams game plan, and this is not the case with Amir or Trey. I also think that LordJeffBuck's stats tell an interesting story. When watching some of these team that are still in the NCAA tourney, they can flat out shoot the ball. After all the team with the most points does win the game.

    You might want to look back and see how many offers Scott and Williams had from some pretty damn good basketball schools before you open your pie hole. I guess no one knows that Williams had an offer from Duke and some pretty other good schools and Scott probably could have gone anywhere.

    Well, that is about all you had right.

    It all goes back to recruiting. Clearly none of the other things you mentioned were serious problems in 2007, 2011 and 2012 when they had a really good group of talent. There hasn't been one legit future NBA player on the team the past couple of seasons, and you can't really plan on winning big in the Big Ten when you're A) losing guys early to the pros and B) not bringing in NBA talent to replace guys you sent to the pros. At the Big Ten level you can't have a super fast tempo and be successful without a lot of offensive talent, and very few up-tempo teams are good defensively (see: Iowa). Matta simply has not had that kind of talent in most seasons at OSU. Sure he hasn't spotted the diamonds in the rough like Burke and LeVert, but let's be honest it's not like UM knew exactly what they were doing or they would've recruited those guys before they committed to a lesser program.

    We may just have to wait for Matta to get some future NBA guys again for the team to get back to the top of college basketball. Even if none of the guys he gets become that kind of player, I have confidence that when he's able to combine the very good 2014 class with what should be an even better 2015 class, OSU will once again have the talent to win big.
