I don't even know how to respond to what happened. If the Buckeyes would have only hit 3 or every 10 three-pointers they would be the national champs. But alas a ridiculous cold streak hit and all I am left with is the words of those that have gone before me...
What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over
like a syrupy sweet?
Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.
Or does it explode?

In a real dark night of the soul, it is always three o'clock in the morning, day after day.

Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.

The only glimmer of hope from this loss is that Greg Oden might decide that he has unfinished business and might stay for another year, playing every game like he played the last one of his freshman year. Along with the hope of two future top ten classes coming in with plenty of versatile big men. And Florida should be decimated next year. Thankfully.
