Not only that, but he outperformed expectations for two teams that were not expected to make the tournament and won at least one game in each. This year was expected to be a step up, but OSU was not expected to be some powerhouse, so I don't understand all the crying on this board outside of maybe getting their expectations too high during the hot streak in the non-conference portion of the schedule. A six seed is pretty much meeting expectations with what the outside media thought of us. A little disappointing just to meet expectations, but then again, Holtmann outperformed them the last two seasons with less talented teams.
This just reminds me why I rarely post on the discussions here anymore despite the fact that I still love the content on the site, this place is filled to the brim with whiny drama queens spewing hot takes after every slightly disappointing result. I still remember how consistently this board was calling for Fickle's and even sometimes Urban's head during the season we won the championship. Judging by this board, everyone should have packed up shop and quit or been fired because that september opened with a loss.
