I was impressed with the effort today. They were right there without Young and EJ playing an absolutely awful game.

This team is capable of beating anyone....also capable of laying an egg. Should be fun

I was working and missed us getting bounced already, damn. Someday Holtmann is gonna have a promising team that actually makes a run in the Tournament, but this is a pretty big oof for a 2 seed.

I have played enough BB watched tons of games to know a loss thats coming.I had that feel in the 1st half that when OR had the leafd and OSU was fighting to get it back it did not bode well. Add to the missed FT's and it was not pretty.

Holtmann has a .590 conference winning %. Zero Big 10 titles. Zero sweet 16s in 4 years. Now, one year the tourney was cancelled.

Now I'm not calling for him to be fired, but next season? A deep run and/or a serious challenge for a Big Ten title i think is needed. Or else the seat should get hot.

I’d argue his teams have overachieved relative to their talent each year.

They’ve just lacked that guy who can consistently create easy looks on offense.

Well then recruit better? Either way, it's year 4.

Will be completely shocked if he doesn't go to the G League.
I know his family legitimately cares about education, but after seeing the success of the G-League Ignite this year... I think it’s a route every top guy needs to consider.

No beef with Holtmann, shots just don’t fall sometimes.

I saw more than enough clean look misses, missed assignments defensively, lazy switches into mismatches, missed free throws and poor possessions/giveaways today.

Players were certainly not healthy, but that’s not an excuse. Today is on the team, for me.

Recruiting prowess seems to be improving, more talent incoming.

Unless you can go get Brad Stephens, I don’t really want anyone else that would be a likely candidate more than I’d want Holtmann.

Every last bit of this. Spot on.

Virginia got absolutely pantsed by a 16 seed then turned around a won a title the next season. Up to Holtmann and the staff to get these guys to channel this into positive fuel.
