So? If Matta is on the up-and-up then he (and the program) really have nothing to worry about. However, his personal behavior of climbing the proverbial ladder by any means necessary will always open him to speculation of this sort.
Personally, I'm not surprised by Ohio State's emergence as a basketball power. They're in a lucrative conference and have more money than they know what to do with for facilities and recruiting -- its amazing it took them this long to be relevant in the sport.
Having said that, they'll never be consistently good like Duke, North Carolina or Kansas until they start recruiting some college stars as opposed to pro-prospects. Its tough to maintain continuity when half your team has one foot out the door before they set foot on campus as a freshman.
