I found with chicken, on the grill anyway, that when it's done it gives a noticeably strong smell of cooked chicken. Hard to describe it but when I smell it I know it's done if that makes sense.

How many players in the league? I count 3, in what 14 years,lol. I'm guessing he doesn't even mention the NBA on his recruiting trips. If he goes on recruiting trips. Can't tell if he does much recruiting with level of talent we are witnessing. At least get a strength program running. I think Gene was waiting for this implosion. So that there wasn't any question why Matta was shown the door.

In that case he'd never leave. As long as he is getting checks what does he care? This is big time college basketball not a pee wee league. That's not how the world works my friend.

Aero it's not worth your time arguing with some of these guys. For some reason some here are fine with a bottom dwelling basketball team and have a blind allegiance to Thad Matta. I feel bad for those that are so willing to accept average. Anybody can be average.

I think we  all understand he wasn't saying go offer calipari $10 million. Merely making the point it's time for TOSU to get serious about the men's basketball program. There's too much money involved to allow the 2nd biggest revenue sport to be a bottom dweller in a bad BIG 10 conference. If Wisconsin can finish top 4 for 14 straight years OSU could certainly do the same with the right coach. The biggest problem is we are not recruiting good enough to compete in the big 10. You think calipari would have success with the players Matta is recruiting? Of course not. It's all about the jimmies & joe's.

Few exceptions? Lol more like that's all they played until Sullingers freshman year when Matta finally switched   to man. And of course his ill fated decision to go back to zone to start the 13/14 season to protect dangelo russel. After losing the first 2 BIG games, they went back to man, and the difference was amazing.

That is dumbest reason not to fire a coach.  Matta is top ten in compensation in the country. Really? That's your reason not to get our basketball program where it needs to be? 

Comment 17 Feb 2017

So let's just wait till we are Rutgers? This team will be even worse next year. What recruits do we have signed to turn this around?

Comment 16 Feb 2017

This and the fact that Matta wins 20 games every year has been the sunshine pumpers justifications not to fire Matta, lol even though 11 wins come against the Long Beach states of D1 basketball.   Dissapointed in these handful of members trying the best they can to silence those without the same opinion. TOSU is a national brand and has great facilities and funding, we deserve  a basketball program that finishes in the top 5 of the BIG.Every year. Bo Ryan in his 14 years at Wisconsin did it. Never finished worse than 4th in the BIG for 14 straight years. You expect me to believe we don't deserve that in Cbus? Shame on you.
