I am guilty of being one of the people that have criticized Matta in the past, but it's articles like this that make me reflect and really appreciate how fortunate we are to have a coach like him.

Also, I've always known that Thad has had back problems, but does anyone know what this issue stems from?

Say what you will, but remember that Daequan was a high pick in the NBA draft after his only year as a Buckeye AND he was averaging almost a double-double half-way through the season.  I know they are different players, but the drop in FG % is the main comparison I am trying to make.  The good thing for Daequan was that he had some of the greatest players ever to step on the court at Ohio State that year, and the team didn't have to rely on his consistency to win games.  In other words, when Daequan was missing shots, that team could afford him to stop shooting and still win games towards the end of the year.  That unfortunately is not the case with Russ, and a lot of times this forces him to take a lot of shots, even when he's not making them.

I hope this doesn't hold true, but Russ is starting to remind me a little bit of Daequan Cook.  If any of you recall, Cook started out the first half of the season on fire, then pretty much became a non-factor towards the end of the season.  Obviously we had a much better team that year to pick up his slack, but I hope this slump doesn't continue.  I also realize that Russ is a different animal than Cook, but it's hard to ignore the fact that his recent sharp drop in FG % has been hauntingly similar.

Nothing better than bringing back the good ole days.  Don't hate, lol.

Nothing to see here... Stan has decided to do what's best for him and Weber will too.

If Weber decides to leave then so be it, I'm pretty sure we'll be alright without him.  However if I were in his shoes, I would have a really hard time leaving a coach with an excellent track record that is fresh off a national championship.

Had to go with the 2002 team because of who they beat in the championship. That Miami team was filled with ungodly NFL talent, and the fact that they came away victorious was really an unbelievable feat.  Also, not only did they win that game, we pretty much dominated Miami and the line of scrimmage (defensive line) for almost the entire game.

I really believe our defense was on a different level that year than this year, and defense almost always wins championships.

I think this poor play is all boiling down to coaching.  Take Lee for example.  The guy averaged almost a double double when he played at Temple.  While Temple was not in the best conference, they were still playing really good teams (Louisville and UConn).  Now Lee looks like he hasn't played a game of college basketball in his life whenever he comes onto the court!  I hate to say it, but it might be getting close to making a coaching change if things don't improve over the next couple of years.

Does anyone know the conference these officials are from?

wow, that kid kills me - almost looks like his face was photoshopped to the body

This game seems dangerously familiar to the Cooper era where it was up to The Game for him to save his job.  Cooper came out and destroyed Michigan for the first time that year which ultimately saved his job.  I hope our players are really focused on this game, because although Michigan isn't what they have been in past years, they definitely have the talent to give us a run for our money if we aren't ready to play.
