I had an interesting conversation with a friend who said that OSU botched Matta's back surgery - like real bad. The statement was delivered with a confidence that made it seemed like a well known fact. I had never heard this before, but this individual doesn't prognosticate much, so it would seem believable. We then speculated about the status of Matta's position because of this. I wouldn't think that Matta would hold the university hostage so to speak, but it makes you wonder if this hadn't happen how the university would be handling this situation given how poorly this team has performed.
Has anyone heard anything about this? Perhaps its all BS, but maybe some of the BasketBuck-Heads who follow this program closer may have heard something.
