Ohio State Coach Chris Holtmann Trolls Maryland Coach Mark Turgeon For His Incessant Complaining

Chris Holtmann trolled Mark Turgeon.

After about three days of calling Kaleb Wesson a "bully," Maryland head coach Mark Turgeon found something else to complain about on Wednesday night.

Moments after his team completed a gutty comeback road win over Minnesota, Turgeon shifted the focus away from his team and to the Big Ten's scheduling practices, lamenting that he was going to get home later than usual due to the 9 p.m. eastern tip.

It seems Ohio State head coach Chris Holtmann saw Turgeon's comments, and with his team playing a 9 p.m. game the following night, he took the opportunity to have a little fun at Turgeon's expense in his postgame press conference.

This troll job comes after Holtmann already expressed his displeasure with Turgeon's continued comments about Kaleb Wesson's play.

“I have a ton of respect for Mark and the Maryland team and the Maryland program, but I just continue to take issue with the way he characterized Kaleb's play,” Holtmann said, unprompted in his Wednesday press conference. “I think it's inappropriate. I've never seen this much conversation after a loss."

“I thought that those comments afterwards were, quite honestly, a little bit out of place,” Holtmann added.

There's a chance they'll get an opportunity to settle the beef on the court as a recent projection predicts a quarterfinal matchup between the Buckeyes and the Terps in the Big Ten Tournament.

Frankly, we're all praying that happens.
