Damn Matta needs a beatin for not recruiting Burke!
Tough times never last, tough people do
Matt Painter needs a tampon for his bleeding vagina.
Anyone seen our boy Willy Buford tonight?
This team only goes as far as will b takes them.
Bring on TTUN!!!!!!!!
Guess who's going to watch some football highlights? xD Good live blog tonight you guys!!
someone is crushing hard! lol
I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!
Maybe just a bit. I like to think it's a well placed crush, though.
no problem with that at all. I am sure most guys on here have a dude crush on him as well!
It's just easier for me to admit it since I'm supposed to have a crush on him. To be fair, I've liked him since I first saw him play against walsh last year.
So I don't think this question got through on the liveblog; Do you guys think Matta is a good floor tactician/game coach? I do.
I do, but Matta's kind of hands off: rarely uses TOs to stop the bleeding and, as we all know, tends not to subsitute freely. He seems to want his players to work it out themselves on the court, in the flow of the game. So, his "adjustments" are not exactly micro-manager, Bobby Knight-esque, for better or for worse. I could be misreading the scene totally, though.
I think he has his moments. Obviously, recruiting has been his forte throughout his tenure, but Matta does decent in-game adjustments. He comes out with good game plans, but he doesn't always make the best on the fly decisions. He obviously knows his X's and O's, but is not quite a master of them. Matta has won 20 games in every season he's been a head coach, and not always with the caliber of talent he's been able to pull in to OSU. I'd give him an overall B. He's proficient, but he can definitely improve.
Well crap, Adam Breneman just committed to State Penn!
Heuerman. No problem. Not to mention his older brother and Nick Vannett and maybe Josh McNeil. He is a stud, but you can't get every player.
true, true. This year is Stoney's and then when recruits see what he does, Breneman will know he made a mistake. but by then it will be too late cuz lil Heuer will be locked!
I guess Billy sold him on the NE success this year with their TEs. Total BS. Gronk was special coming in and Hernandez was coached by a certain buckeye coach. Billy did nothing!
Kansas losing means the B1G is likely to end up with a 1 seed. It'd be great to close out this tourney by getting the 1 seed in that crappy west bracket! In all likelihood they'd get Duke as or even Baylor as the 2.
yep and its not over yet. Mizzou still has to get past a couple tough games. Either Duke or UNC, or both, will lose in theirs. Buckeyes could possibly get to the final and lose in a tough one and still get in. I say they are top 4 right now after this win!
What will the selection committee do if Ohio State is facing MSU on Sunday? As we all know, they put their brackets "to bed" before that BT CG tips off . . .
They probably will make two different brackets depending on the outcomes and then use the appropriate one afterwards (assuming they'll give the big ten a 1 seed).
My understanding is that there are or will be five different basic bracket layouts, pre-selected, with only minor variations. There was actually a time when I thought MSU was a mortal lock for a Number 1 seed. No more. I think MSU and OSU both get 2's.
I'm with you M Man. I think the Big Ten has beaten each other up too much to really deserve a 1 seed like the other schools have. We would need all the cards to fall just right to get the last one.
So, you think they still have Kansas slotted as West #1? Or what other team besides Kent, Syr, and UNC?
Who would you give it to? Kansas beat us in Lawrence, MSU lost to both Duke and UNC, and, though we beat Duke, we don't have their record. Knowing the committe, they may put Duke there if they make it to the final.
