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.

Court storming needs to stop. It’s too quick. Players cannot get off the court. Filipowski looked like he got hurt.

If it doesn’t stop after today it’ll never stop.

I mean give ‘em 15 seconds or something to get out of there. The court view from his perspective was madness.

The main thing I could see causing it to stop if neither the biggest woman's name in the sport or a Dukie getting run into by court-stormers does the job would be if, in a high-profile (ie: national TV) game, fans storm the court, bump into the wrong player and things get really ugly really quickly with that player just blasting the fuck out of whomever runs into him to cause things to escalate into the sort of total brawl/riot that actually means that commentators using terms like "a black eye on the sport" ISN'T overwrought hyperbole for once.

If I’m a hyped up college student storming the court….I’m not running into anyone, running fast or looking to do anything other than celebrate.

Bracketology sucks. Clemson a 5 seed, Wake Forest above Pitt. Look at road record for Wake.

Nearly a melee in South Carolina Vs LSU women’s game. Some got onto the court and crowd tried a bit but good job by security being quick.

LSU chick elbowed a girl in the neck and USC girl trucked her lol. Last 2 min of game USC had 6 players left and LSU 5
