During halftime of Ohio State's eventual 50-43 win over Wisconsin in the B1G Tournament Final, Bo Ryan gave a 17-second interview to CBS's Tracy Wolfson that left more than a lot to be desired.
Check it out and remember his team was actually leading by 1 at the time...
We get that he is upset his team blew most of a 9 point lead, but he needs to check his attitude at the door. Is it really that challenging for Bo Ryan to not be a jerk to somebody trying to do a difficult job when he knows beforehand he's giving this interview to CBS? Lots of coaches blow leads going into the half, and as stressed out as they are, still manage to put on their media-friendly, charming, "ra-ra, we can totally come back" face, and give a decent interview.
Ryan, however, stares blankly at Wolfson while she tries to get him to elaborate on what adjustments the team needs to make.
"Well, (Ohio State) made some shots." And the adjustment, Coach?
"Try to keep them from making shots."
Wow. Thank you Bo Ryan for that insight. Definitely worth the $2.1 million the university forks over to you every year. Not only does he look like The Grinch (I'm serious, Google it!) but he's now acting like one too. Gregg Popovich does the angry sideline interview so much better.

Jim Foster, who won 783 games at Saint Joseph's, Vanderbilt and the last 11 years at Ohio State, will not return as women's basketball head coach next season, Ohio State announced on Tuesday.
Miechelle Willis, the Ohio State executive associate athletic director who oversees the program, said it was a mutual decision.
''There has been some discussion with the postseason...
The Ohio State basketball team hit rock bottom on Feb. 17 when it was blown out by Wisconsin 71-49 in Madison. Eight wins later - including a 50-43 victory over the Badgers in the Big Ten tournament title on Sunday - and the Buckeyes are ready to attack the NCAA Tournament as a No. 2 seed in the West Region.
Ohio State used a smothering defense to hold Wisconsin without a field goal from the final seven minutes and the Buckeyes carved out a workmanlike 50-43 victory in the Big Ten tournament championship game. It marked the fourth conference tourney title for OSU under Matta and the fifth overall for the program.
Replacing potential first round draft pick Johnathan Hankins will be a top priority for the Ohio State coaching staff.
Like many of you, I am still soaking in the euphoric feeling of seeing Ohio State finish undefeated in Urban Meyer’s first season at the helm. This is only the program’s sixth undefeated, untied season in their storied history. Take a second to think about...
With its backs against the wall Saturday night, the Ohio State men's hockey team came out swinging. Behind goals from Ryan Dzingel, Max McCormick and Nick Oddo, OSU captured Game 2 of its CCHA quarterfinal series, 3-1, over Ferris State. The two teams will play again Sunday night with one squad's season coming to an end.
Ohio State returned to the practice field after an extended time off for spring break, and the head coach of the Buckeyes was not thrilled with the results. He also talked about a recent NCAA announcement regarding potential deregulation of recruiting.
Ohio State's women's basketball season is over after the Buckeyes were denied a bid to the NCAA tournament. A WNIT bid was a possibility, but head coach Jim Foster and administration members agreed accepting one would not be in the best interests of the program.
The Ohio State basketball program won its third Big Ten tournament title in four years with a 50-43 win over Wisconsin Sunday, and shortly after it was awarded the No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament's West region. All of a sudden - after some low points in the middle of the year - OSU is an attractive Final Four pick.
Completing an outstanding day for Ohio State athletics, the men's hockey team is going to the Joe. The Buckeyes downed Ferris State, 3-2, to win the deciding game of a three-game series to advance to Detroit's Joe Louis Arena for the CCHA semifinals. Anthony Greco scored the winning goal in the third for OSU.
The Buckeyes have drawn the #2 seed in the West, and I can’t say I hate our odds. It’s a great path to the Elite 8, where a potential matchup with Gonzaga or possibly Wisconsin if they can keep their energy going after the loss to us in the B1G title game. Here’s the full bracket, via cbssports.com, let the Madness begin!
5'9" Evan Yabs, guard for the Warren Warriors, scored just 2 points Saturday in Warren High School's regional championship game against New Philadelphia. But it was the final 2. Tied at 47 all,...
