Yes, fans have expectations. Ohio State fans have high expectations...

...like a sweet 16 every once in a while. It's been a minute, after all.
Year 4...whatever was inherited is history. This team and program and everything in it is on the head coach. Especially with the portal emerging and being a way to really change over a roster/culture. For every Few and Wright that figured it out there are plenty more that didn't. We'll see what happens from here.
: the way they are with football.
: Most are not invested into OSU basketball as a result. Most take the negative angle, and then kinda root to be proven right. If OSU b-ball has great season most here will jump on only until the next big loss.
: OSU has not won a b-ball NC in 60 years. Of course those who are passionate about Buckeye basketball want to see a NC again, but there is 10x the parity compared to college football and on top of that OSU is not a blue blood.
: Thad left the program culturally in shambles. AAU gone wild.
: It took Few and Jay Wright a good bit of time to build the culture and stability of Zaga and Nova. They both did it the right way. Both had scoffers at first over many years. Holt is taking a similar path. It will never be like OSU football where there are only 5 or 10 teams vying for a NC. There are upwards of 40 teams year to year. B1G also is wide open.
: OSU fans in general are very entitled and spoiled.
