Happy Festivus From tBBC

Festivus-PoleIt’s pretty great to be a Buckeye fan… we’re in the midst of a great two year run in football and multiple years of success in men’s basketball- our teams are major news story, and people even pay attention to what the former University president says and does.

That being said… there’s still some grievances that need aired, so before we see if someone can pin Ken in the feats of strength, here we go:

What’s the thing about Ohio State sports that enraged you the most this year?

Jason: Wichita State and Michigan State ending dream seasons that were set up with what appeared to be cake-walk runs to a championship opportunity.

Joe Dexter: The one thing that bugged me most this year about Ohio State athletics was how the athletic administration handled some of it’s coaching changes during 2013. Many will argue about former girls basketball head coach Jim Foster, but the way it was handled was way off kilter in my opinion.

The one firing that made no sense to me was former head hockey coach Mark Osiecki. Athletic Director Gene Smith noted it was a “difference of opinion” that couldn’t be resolved. The program was on the upswing, was in the CCHA Semis despite being very very young, and had a ton of talent coming to Columbus despite always battling not having their own arena to call home.

I’m not saying that Steve Rohlik doesn’t deserve to be the head coach, but the whole situation was handled horribly.

Ken: This would be football related. The inability to show any meaningful improvement in the defense. “Defense wins Championships”, as MSU aptly demonstrated.

Eric: Like just about everyone else, losing out on potential National Title runs to Wichita State and Michigan State.  Both losses were incredibly painful to watch.

Patrick:¬† Charging more for “Premium Games”. As a season ticket holder, I pa them enough and then they pull this BS!?!?

Scott: Both teams were set up nicely to make it to the championship game and defense let us down. Read More
