First, stop emphasizing the word “the” in your official name. No one cares. However, that is not the subject of my letter. I am writing on behalf of the college basketball world today. Why? Why did you have to chuck countless threes in the last 10 minutes of the second half?
I know Tennessee had an advantage on the inside, but did you have to rim out on all of them? It used to be so fun holding the banner of “Sweet Sixteen U” over Tennessee fans, but no more. I imagined a university that holds itself in such high regard could keep the history alive, but I was mistaken.
So thanks, Ohio State, for reminding me why I never choose your athletic teams to win a big game. Was the SEC speed too much for you this time as well?
