Matta is probably the second best if not best basketball coach we have ever had. Yes Fred Taylor got us the one National Championship but Thad actually has a better winning percentage. He has been to the tourny more often in his 9 seasons than Fred had been in his 18 including the previous 5 seasons which has never been done by an OSU coach.
Fact of the matter is Thad has turned Ohio State basketball into a legitimate power and expectations are so high now that because he hasn't won a National Championship since he's been there people want to get rid of him. HE'S THE REASON WE ARE A TOURNAMENT TEAM EVERY SEASON!!! This is so backward. People want to get rid of the coach that has given them the high expectations.
My advice is to take a second and read about the history of OSU basketball. We are not exactly taking about a traditional basketball powerhouse. You will begin to appreciate Matta and what he has done.
2007? So much talent...... Where is the ring?
We may have lost the battle......but not the war.
He needs to recruit more offensive minded point guards. We haven't had a PG who can hit a consistent jump shot since Butler/Conley.
We had a team that started 3 if not 4 freshman playing a Florida team that started 5 seniors who had just won a National Championship. Getting to the game was an accomplishment.
