Matta ran the last recruiting class out of town after one season and they were a top 10 class. Matta has had pretty decently ranked recruiting classes in his tenure. I think the issue is the staff's ability to develop these players during their careers. Loving is just the most recent example of a high level recruit who has not progressed at all. Most of the players seemingly have a good game and then disappear for 2 or 3 games. Lyle is an great example of this. Kam was a halfway decent shooter when he arrived and now he has a hard time hitting the broad side of a barn. Hell even Aaron Craft got worse at shooting over his career. Let's face it the program is broke and the prospects for the future are bleak at best. As the largest University in the State and not being one of the top programs if even one of the top 5 in Ohio, Matta as one of the 10 highest paid coaches in the country is not cutting it.

How do you play a team like Virginia down to the wire and compete well against UCLA only to get beat by a Florida directional school and spanked like this by Wisconsin?  If Thad ran half the recruiting class out of town after last year, what is he going to do after this year? There is an elephant in the room with the program. I won't embrace the bad or the Thad.

This award has no luster and is nothing more than who has the most hype as evidenced by chlamydia's presence at the event.

I haven't heard anyone saying JT should be benched, but on the same token I wouldn't say he is blameless for the offensive struggles the past weeks. He is very indecisive and holding the ball for what seem an eternity, which puts additional pressure on the offensive line. He had plenty of time to throw yesterday and at times there were guys running free. The one deep pass that he threw wasn't even close to being on the mark. For whatever reason he seems reluctant to let the ball fly or tuck it and go. So is he to blame no, but he isn't blameless either.

Why Briles hasn't been sanctioned by the NCAA is beyond me. Seriously, Tress got 5 years, how Briles hasn't gotten minimally 20 is ridiculous.

Everywhere that Lou Holtz went was sanctioned as well after he left. Lou ended up on ESPiN for years.

I thought Giddens was showing some signs of things to come. Harris also showed some positive signs. Mitchell got a late start and may not have been as comfortable with his shot. It was a young team gaining experience. Thad has never been one to go deep into and develop his bench. I have been pleasantly surprised that Kam has stayed with the little time he has seen on the court. 

What quarantee do you have that the next group coming in will have any better success, work hard, listen or perform any better? We could very well be having a similar conversation at the end of next season.

It is odd to me that we lost Harris. I bet he goes to somewhere like Dayton, Cinci, or X and does well. I think he could have played point and they could have put Lyle in the shooting guard position or on the wing. I get what others are saying about well these guys didn't score a lot and we aren't losing a lot, or they couldn't bust the starting lineup so again no big loss. In my mind though, we just lost a whole year of player development and experience, plus at least Harris, Giddens, and Mitchell actually played like they gave a shit.
