    Never seen a player with as much heart, he plays so hard that when he makes mistakes or misses a free throw or whatever, I don't even care because I know he's going to make up for it 2 or 3 fold

    What an incredible effort against Nebraska, absolutely relentless. Man is he fun to watch, just pure effort. That steal to basically clinch it at the end was amazing. So glad that Tate is reaping the rewards for sticking with the program in its worst years in recent memory. He deserves it.

    I though of a meme last night. Fuck figuring out to to make said meme but it'd go something like this:

    What you see

    *photo of Tate outrebounding a big several inches taller, and Tate at his normal height*

    What Jasean Tate sees

    *photoshopped pic of Tate doing the same thing but Tate is 7 inches taller*

    Why Do Coaches Love Jae’Sean Tate?


    After every Ohio State basketball game, both head coaches will meet with reporters for a postgame press conference.

    Almost without fail, every time an opposing coach talks about the Buckeyes, they will spend time mentioning how much they appreciate the play of senior forward Jae’Sean Tate.

    It doesn’t matter how the game turned out or how many points Tate scored. They simply enjoy the way he plays the game, and the level at which his game is being played right now.

    And when Holtmann talks to opposing coaches, they say the same thing to him as well.

    “They’re saying he’s playing the best he’s ever played. He does so much for his team,” Holtmann said.

    Of course, Holtmann doesn’t need other coaches to tell him what he already knows. He sees it every day in practice and every time the Buckeyes take the court in a game.

    However, there is one moment in particular that Holtmann looks back on to speak to Tate the person and the player.

    Late in the game against Illinois a little over a week ago, Keita Bates-Diop was capping a huge night in a win over the Illini. Tate, meanwhile, had scored 11 points with just seven field goal attempts in his 33 minutes of play.

    Tate couldn’t have been happier, however, and that’s one of the reasons why Holtmann feels so strongly about him.

    “I love him. I love him. Obviously, I love all of our guys, but I just can’t say enough,” Holtmann said. “Listen, if this doesn’t encapsulate who Jae’Sean Tate is, Keita Bates-Diop has 35 the other night against Illinois, there’s a clip at the end of the game where Jae’Sean Tate is bearhugging him with a huge grin on his face.

    “And I don’t know what J.T. had in that game in terms of points. If that doesn’t speak to who that young man is and what he really cares about. All he cares about winning. He’s so excited that his teammate had the kind of night he had.”

    Ohio State basketball: Jae'Sean Tate has given Buckeyes everything, and getting the senior season he deserved
    Great article on Tate

    Said the team last year entered the Big Ten tournament already defeated and did not want to play in the NIT

    Thought about giving football a shot, transferring, or possibly even becoming a walk-on
    Tate doesn't think he actually would have left Ohio State. "I'm a Buckeye," he said

    Puts a lot of the blame on last season's team on himself

    Holtmann on Tate "all the cares about is winning" does not care about the individual stats

    "There have been more downs than ups, definitely, but I couldn't have asked for a better senior year," he said. "My whole motto is it's not when you do it, it's that you do it. We're finally doing it this year."

    Going to miss Tate for sure. Can't remember the last time I've seen a player hustle like he does and run to the ball to make a play. Craft is like the only guy I can think of but he didn't play under the basket like Tate does. I want to know the last time a 6'4 guy had 15 rebounds in a b1g game. He's a stud.

    OSU is definitely going to miss Tate next year. He is truly unique with his versatility, energy, effort and all-around contributions and leadership. You don't replace him with one guy, you need different players to bring contributions in multiple areas.
