One of the issues contributing to the decline of the program is the lack of leadership on the court. There has been a vacuum since Craft left, and nobody wants to step into that role, and/or is capable. It's obviously a myriad of factors, and in the end Thad is going to be held accountable. It's not like a new coach is going to build a Natty Champ team in one season with what is currently in the cupboard, so giving Thad another season to stop the bleeding is warranted. It is pretty obvious that without improvement, or more regression, that his time is over.

Regardless...GO BUCKS!

“This is a fickle business we do,” Matta said inside the locker room. “Unless somebody is intimately involved on a daily basis [they don’t know] and they choose the negative side.”

He's right, but he is wrong to expect that people will be satisfied with anything less than an NCAA tourney berth every season. The fire burns brightest when fueled by negativity & failure. He has to understand that improvement is needed immediately. However, based upon Gene Smith's comments, and Thad's own perception of the situation, he isn't going anywhere right now. I love what Thad has done for this program, but unless he rights the ship next season, he needs to step down. I couldn't even get my son to watch the game last night. He opted to watch Pistons v. Pacers....tragic.

I do not remember Corey or his contributions, however I extend my condolences to all who knew him well, and especially to his wife & young son. God bless.

I have a similar circle of very dear, and old friends, so I understand how this feels. Remembering all the good times helps, but doesn't kill the pain. 

My condolences to you, and all of your friends who are mourning this loss, as well as his family.
