And now for something completely different...
The OSU men's basketball season is officially over following their loss to Southern Illinios tonight. They ended with a 5 game winning streak which caused all sorts of excitement, followed by losing 4 of their last 5 to put us all out of our misery.
They should have done better. I'm disappointed.
My prediction: They'll treat Sean Sutton similar to how Gundy was treated last year. They'll tell him what he needs to do to keep his job after next year - in this case, nothing short of an NCAA Tournament bid will suffice. And that is perfectly fair. Sean will have a veteran team returning next year. But 3 straight one-and-out trips to the NIT aren't acceptable.
I'm picking Texas to win it all. Their path seems too easy to me. After first and second round games in Little Rock, Arkansas, they don't even have to leave the state of Texas. I've watched Memphis, and I think Texas can take them out. I say they meet UCLA and North Carolina in the Final Four. Those will be tough, but I'm saying the home court advantage puts them over the top.
So, who are YOU picking?
