A Purdue writer overheard Matta say "You think this is going to be [expletive] easy? Well it's not going to be [expletive] easy."

Thad'll teach 'em to come out all half-assed.

Please make a GIF of that dude from Nebraska falling on his ass while he was back peddling!

Right after this Thad benched Deshaun for the next 5 minutes. I love to see that best player or role player everyone is still held accountable even when we are down 8. I love this team this year, every game is exciting. If Thompson keeps the scoring explosion up, we could see special things come tournament time.
Go Bucks!

Roll with it.

I was watching & thought they were taking the game way too light, then I saw Thad take it to the purple zone, & thought to myself...everything's going to be just fine.

Eh I wasn't worried. As soon as I saw Sam Thompson hit that three to start the game I was like oh yeah this isn't going to be a close game. When Thompson is hitting his jumper it is hard to beat us. The back to back plays of him slamming it home then stepping out for a three was very enjoyable to watch.

2013 = one of Thads best coaching jobs ever.  No question B1G coach of the year.  Watch out for these Bucks in the tourny.  Mattas got them primed!!!!!!!!!!!!

In that tirade I saw Deshaun giving Thad some lip and Thad pointed to someone on the bench and told them to check in.  I loved that move!  Except for Louisville, I'm not sure anyone is playing better ball than the Buckeyes right now.  Anyone who questions Thad's ability to coach a team needs to really take a look at how far this team has come this year.

I thought Thad was going to blow a gasket!  He's intense.  He helped kick them in the rear when they needed it.  Also helped to have Scott coming off the bench too.  Great moves Coach.  We just need to make sure we start faster against the Spartans tonight.  If you we get down to Izzo's team it will be much harder to come back.  Thad might have to turn the color of the sun then!

I have noticed the redder the color in Thad's face the better the buckeyes play. I'm sure there is a chart or graph showing this trend.
