We’ve seen a lot of disregarded players flip the switch with Beilein–I wouldn’t rule that out for a minute. He has looked a little lost the last two games, though. If his number comes up a lot early he seems to find his way to the center of the action; last night and in the previous game he seemed pretty tangential, and pretty tentative when he did see the ball.
Really, though, I don’t see this–most of these technical questions–as the problem last night. They just got bullied and cowed–not even by a lot of hard play, just by the limelight, fans, and OSU’s enthusiasm for stealing the game from them. Every now and then I wish John would get up in their st*ff–and early–when you can see that coming.
