Just got home from a week of vacation w/my family. Also, a week away from online, TV and all that. Heard on Thursday Matta had been discharged, which in my mind was basically what occurred.
This result was almost inevitable.
I would've loved to have seen Thad coach a team, with no expectations, to satisfaction in a return by Ohio State to the NCAAs.
On the other hand, I would've been sick to have watched the elements of pressure and resignation work on him negatively if his team just couldn't make a go of it to return an overall quality program back to respectability.
Probability suggests it would've been the latter.
As I get up to speed on everything that's occurred, I'll check back in.
I like the hire of Chris Holtmann by Gene Smith. I've been told the press conference, though, where the announcement was made Matta was leaving was a tub of smelly goo and for that I despise how Smith handled it.
