Hoping this year is the last straw for Holtmann at Ohio State. Team's doing the same "respectable play in out of conference games; absolute suck in the B1G" as last year, they're incapable of winning on the road AND last night was their second loss of the season in which they blew an 18-point second half lead. With those losses coming to Penn State and Indiana, who aren't exactly powerhouses this year. Because when they are actually playing decent-to-good conference teams like Illinois, Northwestern and at-home Nebraska, they sure as hell never have a big lead to piss away.

Chris Holtmann got canned.


He seems like a genuinely good guy, just wasn't producing results.

Nope, team just seemed to totally stagnate, especially when conference play started. Way too much "guys dribbling around while no one else is really moving" leading to forcing up shots late in the clock. And some of his rotation work just seemed suspect to me this year. It just tends to feel like Thornton and Gayle running the show, Battle putting up threes and everyone else is just sort of there as role players.

Holtman definitely seemed to be a great dude. When he was recruiting 7’0 Zach Loveday of Gallia Academy then Huntington Prep(ended up at Baylor) he came to a football game in  Jackson to support Loveday playing in the Gallia Academy band at halftime.

I can’t imagine many went to those measures of caring.

If my son wasn’t at Pitt I would never be watching this but ACC Network each Saturday has a Nothing But Net highlight show with a 5 person panel and they go through each ACC game , break it down some and look ahead towards the tournament…..anyways I watched tonight because Blake Hinson went on a tear scoring 41 and  Pitt making a run to a bubble team.

Jim Boeheim is on this panel and he is fucking miserable. My God he has zero desire to be there and sounds toasted. No way he needs the money does he? He’s brutal to listen to.
