Agree - both points.
Illinois deserves credit - they earned the win, and looked to have overcome some struggles they've encountered earlier in the season.
It's frustrating in the sense Ohio State can't seem to find similar progress.
It's a standard boiler plate reference around these parts.
Last night was pretty bad...no rhythm whatsoever offensively. Saw a good bit of hesitation, as if they can't (or worse, won't) find any cohesion when they have the ball.
Remain hopeful, but time isn't on their side.
I keep coming back to this...
There are a good many survivors...brothers and sisters in arms...here.
Your thread has reaffirmed the hope, the good, in many of us, BC...and I think it shows the same in you.
My takeaway in reading Holtmann's comments is his response regarding tourney chances.
I get it, we all want Ohio State to have a shot at the title, but I am relieved to read Holtmann places focus on the team improving - individually, as a team, and taking each game one at a time.
The reality now, for me at least, is that this is not a NCAA tournament team. And I'm ok with that. That's not to say I've given up on the team...on to the next, one at a time, and then see what shakes out.
The short term future looks muddled at present, but I sincerely believe there's much to look forward to down the road.
I was miffed with the handling of things through Tatgate, but time heals wounds.
His overall body of work in Columbus should be appreciated.
The lax reviews remain educational...
Looks like a good test indeed. Good luck, gents.
Your education becomes you...
Man, we're up to the 60's! in Maryland, but dropping back down into winter temps over the weekend. Hoping to get out in another few weeks to do the same.
What's the 'P' stand for again?
What the fuck ever.
Actually moved this to OSU football for greater exposure...good luck, OP.
Yeah, that was a team loss tonight.
Any chance we can get Illinois on the football schedule this season?
