F Matt Sylvester (Will Ferrell double)

    Thought it might be fun every now and again to give people a chance to get insight and opinion from current and/or former players.

    In the future, should the main website and stats area become a reality, these will be handled more like diaries, without prompts. But for now, fitting with the format of the messageboard, I thought it would be cool to have a Q&A format.

    So, if you have any questions you'd like to ask Matt Sylvester, pose them here. When we have 10 good ones that everyone's happy with, I'll either get Matt on here to answer them directly, or perhaps we'll have them answer remotely and I'll post the answers here myself. Just have to figure out what works best for Syl.

    If this goes over well, we'll do it with other players in the future, from at least the 3 major sports.

    Appreciate that most of our student athletes have no small amount of contempt for the internet, and things that are said on it at high traffic OSU sports-related forums. That's not to say that you can't pose direct questions, but let's keep everything reasonable and friendly.

    I know there's almost no one on the basketball forum right now, so if you know of people from other boards that would want to participate, invite them over, or just post the thread where appropriate after the fact.

    Ideally I'd like to wrap this up before the Wiscy game. So have it it if you're interested.

    10 Questions for Matt Sylvester

    http://www.buckeyeplanet.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=234

    As this is the first 'test' of such a thing here, I'm pointing over to a thread on the basketball board so enough people see it.

    If this goes well, we'll do it for a couple football players in the near future.

    Baby steps, internet fan communities are not currently seen in a positive light. I fully intend BP to be a clear exception. Doesn't mean we can't be objective, just means we are going to be reasonable. But I don't want to get into all of that.

    If you have questions for Syl, hit that other thread.

    1. Does having JJ in the fold make you a better ball player ?

    2. You have kind of earned a "bad boy" rep. Does that help you on the floor as an intimidator or is it an image you would rather stray away from?

    3. Some players are described as an Athlete, defender, shooter or rebounder ect... wich one or several of these would you pick to describe your game ?

    4. How tall are you ? Shoes off ! Because you are one of the only players who actually look the height your listed at.

    5. You and BFC appear to be close friends, are there any other teammates that you consider a good friend beyond the typical comradery ?

    Well, with apologies to you, ant, I think I'm going to scrap this for now. No interest.

    Crap that's a big loss, but way to go Thad. Perhaps it was inevitable with the Big10 being upset, but I am glad to see matta take a strong stance on something lighter like this.

    I don't know what he did, but it speaks volumes that whatever he did, he was immediately punished. I am sorry for him and the team because we needed him for this game. I hope that others will rise up and take on this challenge.

    This suspension highlights the true character that is inherent in the OSU sports program, especially when compared to Minnesota's failure to punish Taylor and Behagen for putting Luke Witte in the hospital and ruining his career all those years ago.

    I am so very proud to say that I am a Buckeye.

    I'm guessing he launched an f-bomb. I'm also guessing the "fan" probably had it coming, but you can't have rabbit ears on the court.

    Matta did the right thing.

    What is the big deal? I swear at Michigan State fans every day. Most Michigan State fans only comprehend swear words. I'm just speaking in a language they understand.

    Glad to see Matta is making sure that the team follows the rules and acts the way they are supposed to. Breslin is a tough place for opponents. My boss was at that game and he never mentioned anything about it so it must not have been a big incident, but still large enough to warrant a suspension.

    Since he is being penalized for his behaviour towards a fan in the state of Michigan I can only assume he was helping them with their coat, reminding them that they had left their hat, or some other benevolent action.

    Where was Geiger!!!!! This program is out of control!!!! It's an embarassment!!!!! If you don't believe it, you are in denial!!!!! I used to like Mota, but now I think he's crooked!!!! Someone has been asleep at the wheel!!!

    I'm just kidding. That was kind of fun though.

    I was very encouraged by the Slyk played against Iowa - he looked like he was moving better than he has in 2 months, and some of his shots were falling. He seemed to be handling the ball well & passing well.
