07.Nov.2011 Basketball Discussion
Like all of you, I'm excited for Saturday's opener. It affords an opportunity to step away from this miserable football season. I'm just wondering how long that excitement will last. I mean, last year I was excited, too…for about an hour.
My gut says this year's team will be better.
– Calvin Haynes, Lathan Wallace, Omari Johnson = a better team.
We'll figure out once and for all if the past three years were a talent or coaching issue. Is Craig Robinson going to continue his undisciplined schoolyard style? Will he insist on zone defense? Will the current players be able to play zone more effectively? Most importantly, will there be any inside presence, both scoring and rebounding?
Craig Robinson is officially on the hot seat, which in the absurd world of OSU athletics, means he will probably be extended through 2030 before tip off.
