Great article telling a great story that really hits home with me. I'm currently in my first management position and struggled mightily trying to build and mold the team the way I want. It's good to see that there is hope for it to get better. I don't want to be mediocre for long.

Excellent fit and opportunity for him. I now have a second favorite team. Hopefully he is very successful and can return home once Urban retires in 2055

Exactly. At some point people have to realize that it's ok to accept that our basketball program can reach the next level with a different leader. Matta did a wonderful job in raising the ceiling for our basketball program. But it's time to realize he raised that ceiling higher than he can reach himself

So for all you out there saying people are stupid for wanting to get rid of Matta, when is it enough? How many more games do we have to lose to the FAU's, and Louisiana Tech's of the world for it to "make sense" to get rid of Matta? When do we stop defending him for what he did 5-10 years ago? When is it ok for us to realize our athletic department is too damn good for this shit level of basketball? Please tell me folks.

I always felt people overreacted to that 6-7 season. They were in every game they played and he was working with a bunch of freshmen and sophomores along with coordinators he didn't get to pick as well.

I honestly think he's too good a coach for the FAU job. I think he could get a low-mid level Power 5 HC job at least. Or am I crazy? I always felt he got too much negativity for how he did as the interim HC at OSU. He led a team of freshmen and sophomores and was in every game they played that season. I think he'll make an excellent HC one day, and even wouldn't mind him taking over after Urban retires in 2045. I know I'm in the minority on that one, but I think the guy could be good.
