I know Dials is a team captain, but you probably could credit this to senior leadership. Fuss and Stockman are no where near leaders, both make horrible decisions, especially for seniors. Its hard for a team to make progress throughout a year if there is no senior leadership. Like I said before, I hate talking this way about Buckeyes, but there is nothing else to say. Foster and Dials need to speak up, and take over the leadership role of this team. Every game Foster and Dials come out and play hard, not just when they want to. They both need to speak up, because their actions on the court may not be enough IMO.In the early games this season they seemed to come out after every stoppage ready to strap it on. Now the intensity waxes and wanes. I sincerely thought this team would just get better as the season wore on. Now my thinking is in terms of 'resurgence' towards the end of the season.
I agree, I thought we just didnt come ready to play vs Minny, but against Indiana we played hard at times and then had costly turnovers. We played well in spurts but I don't think they have put together 40 minutes yet this season.I thought the Minnie game was much worse.
