I think there should be a ban on creating posts for 24 hours after a defeat of the Buckeyes. Some don't have the mental make up to deal with adversity and come across foolish. Or just pull up the Fire Fickell threads and it is probably the same lame gang.
The 20 win angst crowd should know in Thad's 12 years here he has a 26.5 average wins per season. He also has the best winning percentage (75%) of any Buckeye coach except for a dude who coached two years in 1909 and 1910. Even the great Fred Taylor pales in comparison.
If assuming Izzo is the B1G benchmark, Izzo's 21 years at MSU he has a 72% win percentage and averages 24.8 wins per season. He won a natty 16 years ago. Likewise 24% of Izzo's 21 seasons he has won less than 20 games (Matta 0). Given all that I have never seen the sparty faithful looking to run Izzo out of town.
I think philosophically Izzo prefers senior laden teams and while I don't know if Matta thinks the same way or not his teams have been a bit more one and done recently with more talent in the NBA after their freshmen and sophomore seasons. That has been successful for Kentucky and Duke in recent years and possibly he feels to compete he needs the same level of talent which leads to more one and done.Hard to argue one is better than the other except for whatever reason Izzo gets the benefit of the doubt with consistency
Looking at that as a backdrop I don't see why the hate towards the Buckeyes and Matta from some of the "fans". But then again, words are cheap. #glasshalffull
