Re: Thad Matta and UK....
Good gosh people. Can we do a little more 'mines bigger than yours' talk? OSU and UK are two of the top collegiate sports programs in the nation. Some days [or sports] OSU is better, some days [or sports] UK is better. Both have a lot of money to toss at a coach, both have or are building top facilities, and both have rich histories. It's all up to Matta or whatever other coach to decide what he wants. OSU can offer just as much cash, and just as solid facilities, and yes are in a better position right now that UK. But let's look at the ego's of the coaching candidates involved before calling names. 'Rebuilding' UK will be a far bigger notch in the belt than anything done at 99% of other schools.
I don't think we need to carry on the debate about which school is better, they are both very pretty and could get any man they want....sorry, couldn't resist answering the seeming inferiority complex thats raging in this thread.
