Matta said he won't talk to UK. End of story. :rolleyes:
Seriously though, if Matta didn't pursue the IU job, why would he pursue the UK job?
Contractually Smith probably has to allow him to talk, so the question this story is based on probably only had one answer. I seriously doubt that Thad is going anywhere, he has a very good recruiting class coming in next year again, and a GREAT recruiting class coming for 2008. He is already one of the highest paid coaches in the country, and frankly Ohio State has all the resources or more, than Kentucky could offer. Kentucky's job has more historical prestige, but Thad is sitting on a home field advantage in terms of recruiting. Quite frankly it is embarrasing that Ohio State hasn't had more success over the years, considering the instate talent, and money in the athletic department.
At this point, if Matta leaves again after he has said he won't, he may well end up looking like he went to the Nick Saban school of how to further your career.
As an Ohio State fan, if Thad Matta left, it wouldn't be the end of the world. You could always find someone to take his place.
Ashley Judd, does that make UK more or less attractive?
You tell me...
I didn't know UK had hockey?
Or is that pool?
Yeah, ten year old picture, about when UK had a good team too.:devil:
A few years ago...I about burnt out UK football till they hired a young coach (who I liked his offense) by the name of Hal Mumme who got me intersted in football again.
I have done reached that stage with the basketball program and there are only a few guys that would bring back that excitement again for basketball.
Matta is alright but he isnt one of the guys. No offence to OSU fans on here just merely my opinion.
I mentioned this in the previous thread, but I am starting to wonder what skeletons are hiding in Mr. Matta's closet.

Either Matta is a great recruiter, or something is going on in Columbus that could put the Buckeyes back on probation by the end of the decade.
While I don't want Matta anywhere near UK, the fact that he said no doesn't mean much because he said that he wasn't up for the Ohio St job either.
