He gets an appropriate amount of crap. It's ok if he sucks, but it's not ok if he acts like he'd rather be napping.

Would love Coach Cal going to the Lakers. Would not love UK stealing Matta. Wouldn't he be on their list, and wouldn't Matta consider it? I'd put my money on Shaka Smart, and I hope UK would too.

Easy draw? I couldn't possibly disagree more.

You left out the part where he's the son of one of the all-time Buckeye greats. I still remember the first time I heard about Traevon Jackson. First thing I thought was, "Jim Jackson has a son going to college? Man, I am getting old." Then I thought, "Well, he must not be that good if Ohio State doesn't even want him. Wait, he's going to Wisconsin? Oh, this is going to end very, very poorly..."

How about we start by getting guys who can shoot, beginning with the guys in our own back yard? I'm tired of hearing about guys from Ohio that are playing or have played key roles on very good teams. Just off the top of my head -- Burke, Payne, Trice, and Lavert. I know you can't get everyone, but how about we get a decent percentage. Of the contributors on this past team, who's from Ohio? Craft, Amir, and Loving -- anyone else? Pretty sad if you ask me. This March Madness has been immensely enjoyable not just for the great games but because I have been able to watch teams who can score. This pains me SO MUCH to say, but Michigan is an awesome team to watch this year.

Three years ago:

  • Point guard Thad Matta wanted: Shannon Scott
  • Point guards Thad Matta didn't want: Traevon Jackson, Trey Burke

When you pass up kids from Columbus, worse yet kids that are sons of Buckeye legends, you better be sure you're getting greatness. I'd have to say Shannon Scott doesn't qualify.

Fair point, to an extent. Sibert got 10 minutes/game his sophomore year, which is alright but not a ton. But at what point do you as a coach have to draw the line? Not everyone can play 25 minutes/game every night. You're going to play the guys who are producing, or at least not sucking donkey balls, which is what <30% is.

Jordan Sibert couldn't shoot when he was at Ohio State either. Maybe I'm being ultra sensitive, but I'm reading into the tone of this comment, and what I'm reading is, "Matta should have played Sibert so we didn't lose him." Seems like revisionist history to suggest that Matta should have played more of a guy who was shooting under 30%.

I voted Other because I think I can legitimately say none of them improved significantly. Same goes for Craft and LSJ. ADV might be the best answer...I guess...

If I was ever going to read Rick Reilly, this would be the piece. But...I can't do it.

Rick Reilly will write about anyone if he can get a few clicks out of it.

DJ, I'm getting awfully used to these daily Skull Sessions. If you're not careful, you're going to keep growing on me. Definitely the most interesting writer here.

Comment 18 Mar 2014

A buddy of mine, an Indiana fan, asked me over the weekend, "If you could have any coach in America..."

I wanted to say Matta, but I knew that wasn't really honest. I said my top 3 would be Izzo, Coach K (I can't stand him, but he would undoubtedly win), and...Brad Stevens. I also mentioned Sean Miller. I think I'd rather have the first three than Matta, but even with them, it's close. I'm often not crazy about his lineups or his offensive strategy, but still, we've got it good.
