Can you answer this question: What is it about Loving that Matta plays him for so many minutes?
I have absolutely no clue why he plays so much. As the above stats show, it looks like he should play far fewer minutes. He also does not appear to play hard. Do you know why Thad plays him so much?
If you assume that Thad doesn't know what he's doing, then that's clueless in my view, especially when other knowledgeable, experienced college coaches praise Matta and the job he's doing this year.
Thad has proven to be far from perfect as a head coach. If the stats and the eyeball tests show that Loving should not play as much, it is perfectly reasonable to question his strategy.
Have talented Ohio players recently recruited by OSU, passed on the Buckeyes and decided to attend other schools? Do you want this to continue?
Ohio kids leaving Ohio to play at other schools is now the fault of anonymous internet posters criticizing the play of the team? I wonder how UK, Duke, UNC, Kansas, etc. win all of those games and continue to recruit all of those great players... Lord knows those schools have a much larger and much louder contingent of unruly fans.
Call me crazy but I expect better effort and better results than what we have seen from Thad's teams over the last three years. He has earned some patience so I am not in the "Fire Thad" corner, yet. And if anonymous people pointing out stats and making observations about a player's performance cripples said player, I'm sorry, but maybe big time collegiate sports isn't for him...
