Holtman was a highly lauded success at Butler where he won national coach of the year honors. To sum up he has wasted no time putting his stamp on the Buckeyes program. This year College Basketball bets wins over Kentucky and North Carolina caught America’s attention. But losses to Wisconsin and West Virginia have been perplexing. Simultaneously Archie Miller has jumpstarted Indiana into contender status.
