Yeah, as much as I was hoping to see the magic return for Ohio State in the Big Ten Tournament like seasons past, the chances appear to be slim, but they are not out yet.
You have to go back to 1995 to see the Buckeyes rebound from a loss in the opener to win the championships, but that was back when the tourney field was just four teams.They have never lost the opener to come back and claim the title in a six-team tourney. They came close though in 2004. After losing 10-4 to Michigan, Ohio State roared back to force a second championship game vs. Minnesota before ultimately losing.
That comeback will keep me tuned in to see what happens the rest of the way.
