Are you saying you think he is not aggressive enough: because I think not stabbing someone in the leg is a good thing.

referencing Canada's newest and shortest-lived recruit.

Found this.  Still ranks as craziest game I ever saw at the JAR.

Those highlights reminded me that Mikal Dawson had some really nice plays during the first half of that game.

TWO THINGS:

1) At one time I had an aspirations, but I fixed it with some Preperations H.

2) Why is this stuff in a basketball thread?

He is smooth. Not to knock Cheese and Banks, but I feel like our back-court will be very fluid this year. Cheese had a bit of Duvivier in him (bulldozer) and could be a bit wreckless, and Banks was more of a defense-first, pure SG on offense and wasn't able to really run the offense or handle the ball TOO well if needed. I think we'll be able to beat our opponents off the dribble more and create more opportunities, both open beyond the arc and down low for closer baskets.

Ohio State has their schedule updated starting with the Battle 4 Atlantis until the end of the year before conference play and as expected we are not on it as we were supposed to play early November  Suckeyes Schedule

 

Our Tentative schedule on GoZips is currently conference only but everything on the page stresses tentative (assuming they will be adding non conference at some point)  Zips Tentative Schedule

You would think a more regional opponent would have had a bigger push to be kept (Akron/OSUcks being 2 hours apart) instead of keeping so many out of state opponents during a "pandemic". 

 

I'm nervous to see what kind of shenanigans happens with our schedule.

A little Bryan Trimble video-

 

 

I think that's Michael Porter in the background a couple of times.

I thought the MAC was not going to play OOC this season? Unless that changed...

For scheduling issues, follow this guy's Twitter. @RoccoMiller8

 

He's talking about MTE -- Multi-team events.  High majors are host-scheduling 4 team events with regional, mainly mid-major opponents.

So basically creating their own "bubble" for the OOC opponents?

 

Any word on which high majors might pick up Akron?

OSU is one of the remnants of the Battle for Atlantis (or whatever it's called) that are moving to one of the Dakotas to play in a pretty good (unnamed) tournament beginning the first day teams are allowed to play games. Mid-majors in the field include Creighton and Dayton (no Akron).

My point is if they travel to an area that doesn't take it seriously someone could contract and ruin a few weeks of a season.  But fair enough...i should put this topic in different thread
