Ohio State Basketball: 10 Reasons Buckeyes Could Be Early Out in NCAA Tournament

There are moments in the NCAA Tournament when thousands of college basketball "experts" rip up their brackets because the team they picked to win it all got bounced in the first or second round.

I know. It happened to me last year when I picked Kansas to beat Villanova (in my defense, I picked that preseason and decided to stick with it; it would've been legendary had I picked the tournament final before the season started).

Upsets of that proportion typically don't happen very often, especially when talking about No. 1 or 2 seeds.

Ohio State is pretty much guaranteed a No. 1 seed barring an absolute collapse in these last few games, and with the high seeding, many people will be picking them to make a long run in the tournament.

With every top-seeded team, there are instances that would spell disaster in the first weekend. Ohio State is no different.

For the record, do I think OSU will go out in the first weekend? Absolutely not. I view them as one of the favorites to win it all, and it will be hard for me to not put them in the Final Four. However, if they do indeed lose early, it will definitely be because of one or more of these 10 reasons.
