If d'angelo Russell is a first team all American, I guess that means Thad matta should be in the running for coach of the year, right??
some people here at Ohio State want Thad matta out. They forget osu basketball was NOTHING before he got here
With Thad Matta's major back issues, gotta wonder if Archie Miller is eyeing the OSU job.
Most will never give him full credit. Mark Few, Thad Matta, John Beilein, etc., same way.
How did Thad Matta get through? Congratulations to Joey Bosa whose shrug has reached my Final Four.

What's Thad Matta's excuse? I watch Izzo yr after yr take mediocre teams deep in the Tourney.
Thad Matta will use the fact that the Big 10 got two teams in the Final 4 to his advantage instead of losing in round of 32 hurting him
I remember when a reporter asked Thad Matta on Valentine's Day if Michigan State was an NCAA Tournament team.
If you gave Thad Matta this same Michigan State team they would have gotten bounced 1st or 2nd round.

even Thad Matta would go two for one if his possession started at 1:10(I think)... *** was Mike Brey doing
that's why you go 2 for 1... is Thad Matta coaching ND?
Him, John Groce, and Thad Matta's teams all do that and their timeouts are often asinine. Totally agree on that point.

I can appreciate the passing the ball around the perimeter and chucking up 3s... That stems from the Thad Matta coaching tree

I see Thad Matta's future in what just happened to Rick Barnes.
he is the Thad Matta of the Big12, fair? Or insult to Thad? Both get tons of talent and seem to underperform.

I'd rather watch Val Kilmer drink a bucket of turkey gravy than watch Thad Matta argue with refs.
That 16-5 run by Ohio State came after Thad Matta switched to zone at the 6:38 mark of the first half. VCU went 2 for 10 from the field.
Thad Matta's a decent coach, but is not elite. He's also not the motivator Urban Meyer is. Either way, football is the "A" act in Columbus.
Urban Meyer's best coaching job ever followed by Thad Matta's worst.
I think VCU bounces Ohio State from the tourney. Which is sad but fitting because I would love to see Shaka Smart take over for Thad Matta.
Bobinski hired Thad Matta from Butler, promoted from within on Sean Miller & Chris MacK. Three money hires in a row

After watching Ohio State beat Oregon for the National Championship I have come to realize that Illinois hasn't a chance to win even a Big Ten Championship in The Beckman era ! Beckman is just a chump compared to Urban Meyer. Meyer can evaluate talent better than anyone and in turn get them to come to his program.So with football never going to happen,my hope focuses on Groce turning things around for the basketball program. He (Groce) is a Thad Matta disciple and Thad is an Illinois boy and a winner whom we should have hired long ago ! I have been an Illinois fan for years but it is getting harder and harder to watch our 2 big programs become the laughing stock of the Big Ten. End of first 2015 rant !!!
Thad Matta talks about how much Michigan lost. Buckeyes lost a lot too: Aaron Craft, leading scorer LaQuinton Ross, and Lenzelle Smith Jr.

He might be a great guy and recruiter...but he's had too much talent to not win something...and he's wasted a great COLLEGE-only talent like Craft because he just cant take anyone to the next level. Izzo makes Matta look like Matt Doherty at UNC...or Mike Brown at FEMA...hyperbole and inside baseball aside...just poor execution
I would recommend Richard Pitino to keep his coat on and not reveal his girly darted shirt. In his defense Ohio State is a dirty dirty basketball team and Thad Matta needs to invest in some Biore oil blotting wipes.but C'mon man!!
Thad Matta admitted that the loss to Iowa was the first time the Buckeyes missed having a go-to guy like Jared Sullinger or Deshaun Thomas.
