    ESPN 40 under 40 College B-ball Coaches

    https://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/story/_/id/29157808/40-40-rank-best-young-coaches-college-basketball I thought this was a decent read since I am starved for college round ball. Rankings of note (for me at least): 4. Mike Boynton: I hope the performance of the team this year is...

    Basketball Team Expectations

    Great call. Defense needs the whole unit to function at a high level to be effective. I'm actually really excited to see what we will be capable of on that end of the floor next year with all the sophomores getting stronger, knowing the expectations, game plans, and where to be to help their...

    Basketball Team Expectations

    Agreed. While he is somewhat foul prone, the lack of consistency and terrible judgment calls of Big 12 officials certainly didn't help him at all throughout last year. College officiating in general has been absolutely horrendous over the past several seasons. On offense, Yor and Ka-boooooone...

    Basketball Team Expectations

    Which is why I have been baffled that Boynton has not largely adopted Underpants' offensive philosophies, or didn't do so from the very start of his head coaching career. @Sutton4ever noted above that we began utilizing some pinwheel towards the end of last season when things began turning for...

    2020 MBB General Recruiting Thread

    Yes, you are both correct. Nick did not take a scholarship spot b/c his family was in a good enough position in life that he could do so and help the team as a result. The difference between doing that and giving a bonus to a coach whose family member is on the team is... quite different.

    Men's Basketball 2020 F Matthew Alexander-Moncrieffe Signs with OSU

    I would love to see breakdowns like this for all the incoming players!

    Basketball Team Expectations

    Great thread. I agreed that 3rd-4th in the league is a worthy expectation. Ecstatic: 1st in conference and establishing a consistent offensive identity that is consistently effective AND doing so by the end of the non-con schedule. Also, Ice developing ANY kind of shot away from the basket. I...

    That is a deep hole in itself. Unchecked/monitored/oversight/etc. on huge amounts of stimulus $ going to corporations is a great start to examine. That sounds like a really well thought out idea since it worked out so well in the past. Cue your sarcasm meters.

    I think it is THE question. I'm glad this thread has reduced in inflammatory positions over the past several pages.

    It is exhausting for sure. Not only that, it seems that civil discourse between those who disagree is a lost cause most of the time. Which is sad, in my humble but correct opinion. :p Also, dude... spoiler alert! I kid, as I know that movie has been out long enough for me to ample oppurtunity...

    Agreed. I just snagged the first one in the google search. And thank you for the other chart and your feedback. I genuinely enjoy getting takes from all different areas of the spectrum, though it does tend to get overwhelming since there are so many differing opinions out there. Not that it...

    2020 MBB General Recruiting Thread

    How about a silent commitment of Greg Brown to OSU AND reclassification of Thor to 2021 AND THEN Thor commitment to OSU for next year?!?! Come on down, the quarantine brain is running amuck.

    You should probably watch the entire clip before casting judgment. To answer your question, here is a chart (edit: from 2018). Granted, I'm sure there is some bias in whomever put the chart together, so I am including the source article as well so you can make your own interpretation of the...

    Eddie - Some Good ESPN Write-ups

    Most of this info is old hat for OSU fans (Put him in the HOF, for effs sake), but it is nice to see it on the WWL main page. Sure wish the documentary could get aired ASAP as a 30 for 30 since there are so many people home who would probably love to devour anything new and sports related...
