I've never actually stolen anything from anyone or anywhere, but I know that I'll never have to satisfy that particular kleptomaniacal thrill because I have just watched the 2018-2019 Ohio State men's basketball team upset the Iowa State Cyclones in the NCAA tournament.

Objectively it was a sloppy mess of a game that was won as much on the strength of baskets that were missed as much as baskets that were made, but seriously, who cares? The season is now an unqualified success, and Chris Holtmann pulled off a ridiculous feat of coaching considering what he's had to work with.

He is, man. I used to say the same thing about Jim Tressel, and the reasoning here is that you've got a guy who is so meticulous (as a forensics officer?) in preparation and coaching that some form of advanced witchcraft must be involved, given the talent available.

Anyway: Houston awaits. Let's get 'em.
