So a guy I work with at a gym was bashing Thad Matta today and I felt I had to interject and ask why he hates him so much. He told me that Thad is an absolute joke and one of the worst coaches in the country because OSU has never won a Natl Title with Thad and OSU disappoints in the tourney every year. I told him to look at OSU bball before Thad and with Thad. I said with Thad OSU has won the Big Ten 5x, Big Ten tourney 4x, 4 sweet 16s, 3 elite 8s, 2 final fours and a Natl Champ appearence. Not to mention all the 1st rd draft picks he has put into the NBA. I said compare his resume with others around the country and outside of a select few it stacks up.
BTW this same guy said he would rather build a team around Pistol Pete Maravich than Lebron James. His reason: If Pistol Pete played in the prime of his career, when the NBA had a 3 pt line, he would have scored 100pts MULTIPLE TIMES!! And I got video of that because it was so ridiculous!!
I think we need to realize how lucky we have it to have a coach like Thad at this University! GO BUCKS!!
