How hot is Holtmann's seat at OSU? I say he's gone. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Doesn't help when you lose to Nebraska (last night) and are now 10 - 8. Six years at Ohio State and after this year they will have experienced double digit losses every year but one (his first). 65% winning percentage won't cut it at OSU, especially if the administration wasn't happy with Matta's performance and fired him. Have never advanced beyond Round of 32 in the Dance. No Big Ten titles, and not even close except for his first year with Matta's players when they finished tied for 2nd. Will give him some credit for lasting as long as he has. Not sure if he signed a five or six year contract but never thought he would fulfill that original contract. Holtmann's success at Butler was clearly due to the fact that he had surrounded himself with an incredible staff. Arguably, all of whom were probably better coaches then him. Never impressed me with his "game" when he spoke and was interviewed at BU. He's gotten exposed at OSU and his "average" performance, especially since his assistants have moved on. With the resources he has had at OSU, no excuses. Average coach. Not Big 6 level. More on the level of Crean. Will probably follow that same path. I'm sure someone at this level will hire him and he'll get exposed again.
