PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Could someone please please please make a gif out of that and post it? I haven't seen Matta that mad in ages!
Thad looked something like this.... minus the troll hair.
You want strawberry? Well how about RAW-BERRY!!!
Matta ain't small! At least he doesn't hit.
I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!
"You had best square your ass away and start shitting me Tiffany cufflinks or I will definitely f#ck you up!"
"Okay -- I've got an El Camino full of rampage here."
Best get strack.
I don't think I have ever seen Matta that pissed. Ravanel certainly didn't see anymore action after that and I wouldn't expect to see him play much against IU after that tongue lashing. Yikes!!!!
You said it. I thought his head was going to explode. I do hope they put this experience behind them so that it doesn't carry over to the next game.
Ok I missed it... What did he do?
Missed a couple of bunnies then stepped out of bounds, got called for it, bounced the ball in disgust and mouthed off to the referee. Yanked and reamed immediately.
Before he reamed him, they showed MAtta and you could lip-read "Rav! Rav! Rav!"
Then he turned and talked to somone and yelled "SUB!"
The looks on the faces of the Ohio State fans in the crowd is absolutely priceless.
"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.
Favorite part of this was Rav instantly knowing that he deserved it. Too often you see something like this from a coach and the player is still acting the same way afterwards.
Matta always appears cool and in control. Now we know that he can be fiery when he wants to.
If by "cool" you mean "hot and sweaty" then I agree.
I actually meant to say "calm", but typed "cool". What I really meant to say was that he rarely seems to get emotional during games (as in Bobby Knight emotional), but we saw that he can.
Rav and then Thad getting their ragefaces on
Class of 2010.
You can't take away that Ravs puts his heart into every play...sometimes it ends up backfiring
I don't see Rav ever doing something like that again.
Imagine Ravenal is glad that happened at NW. Smaller crowd at least. And he will definitely remember what not to do.
Matta put his hands on Rav!!!!
I'm surprised Rav didn't storm of the court... and surprised that all of sports media didn't chastise Thad for it.
Good for Thad. I wish he would do that more often.
Stay golden, Ponyboy.
I want to see a gif where Matta's head explodes at the end. That was priceless.
Did Ravenal talk about this incident post game? Probably not, but interested to know if he did indeed say anything about it.
He posted a apology today via twitter and said basically sorry and putting it behind him and looking forward to focusing on Indiana tuesday.
Props To Ravenel last night. He played rather well, and seems to move forward for this..
He definitely responded well and played great last night for sure. Everyone says how well Zeller runs the floor etc but Rav did it just as well last night.
