On this episode of “Hangout in the Holy Land,” Josh and Chuck try their best not to overreact... to Ohio State’s epic meltdown on the hardwood, as well as the Buckeyes’ apparent refusal to (really) weaponize the CFB transfer portal.

First up is OSU men’s basketball... Woof. At least for one night, Chris Holtmann’s squad reverted back to a team without a clue on the defensive end. After building an 18-point lead with just 15 minutes to go against Penn State, the Buckeyes folded like a cheap chair, resulting in a twice-in-a-decade loss.

The hosts are willing to believe that Saturday night’s performance was just a blip on the radar, but after last season, the benefit of the doubt will not linger for long.

As for Ohio State football... Well, a lot of players are leaving the program, that’s for sure. But no need to panic. Yet. Because the Buckeyes were due for a roster purge.

Now it is up to Ryan Day and Co. to use the transfer portal to their advantage, by bringing in proven players at multiple positions of need. Otherwise, Ohio State risks falling behind more aggressive top-tier teams.

Also in this episode: The Hangout Boys hand out some awards and discuss good news regarding the Cotton Bowl!
