Why it only made sense for Chris Holtmann to dip over to Ohio State! “The Obvious”

Hey bruh...they offered me way too much bread to be foolin' around with y'all now." (Photo by Jim Rogash/Getty Images)

When they asked Pookie, Ray-Ray, Nook-Nook and Lil’ Elbow on Thursday would Chris Holtmann actually leave Butler for Ohio State. They were already over there waitin’ on boyz to drop something as they were puttin’ everything he owned into the U-haul. By the time we heard about this foolishness ole boy was half way to Columbus.

On Friday it was announced that Holtmann accepted the job at Ohio State to become their next head coach!

What blew my mind were the amount of duns that were upset with ole boy for leavin’!! Butler diehards hollerin’ that Butler was a better program than Ohio State. That’s when the delusion kicks in on a boy, they get butt naked and start foamin’ at the mouth.

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Butler’s program has been more successful than Ohio State’s program over the past 10 years or so but it’s not a better program. Sure, they’ve been to the title game twice under Brad Stevens. But he bounced for greener pastures. They balled out under Holtmann goin’ to the NCAA Tournament all three years even makin’ it to the Sweet Sixteen last year. Ole boy was the 2016-17 Big East Coach of the Year, the 2013 Big South Conference Coach of the Year and a Naismith National Coach of the Year finalist in 2014-15. but he bounced too!! Why? Because it’s a steppin’ stone program. Boyz are usin’ it to get better jobs. It’s always been that way.

No question Holtmann did work at Butler. However, the program is what it is playa. It’s a steppin’ stone program!! Nobody that has that type of success is ever goin’ to stay.

Ohio State has the third largest revenue of all schools in the country behind only Alabama and Texas!!! Their athletic program revenues are just over $115 million per year bruh!! Do you know how much Butler makes per year? They only bring in $14 million!!!

Listen playa $115 million means better facilities, better gear, better exposure and more bread into his pockets!! They doubled that duns salary from $1.5 million to $3.1 million over night!! Are you kiddin’ me? What maniac still thinks that Butler is a better job?

I didn’t even bring up the fact that they’ve got the Big Ten Network pushin’ these boyz!! The freakin’ conference has their own network bruh!! And Butler is still playin’ around with a school newspaper. You do the math.

Chris Holtmann would have been out of his mind not to take the Ohio State job.

Here’s the difference between workin’ at Butler and Ohio State. At Butler a head coach that is good will eventually quit because he’s been offered a better job. At Ohio State the dun is goin’ to eventually get fired. The latter is better because he’ll make way more bread and he can always go back to a Butler type program or become an analyst. Stop me when I start lyin’!

Playas Thesaurus: 

1) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.

The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
