The Ohio State Buckeyes men's basketball team didn't live up to the expectations they had going into the season. If there is one place to place blame, it has to fall on the shoulders of head coach Thad Matta.
Matta didn't have his team very well prepared this season, and he failed to call the plays or make the adjustments the team needed to be competitive. Matta should know he failed this season.
This wasn't the kind of coaching we were used to seeing from Matta, and he knows it. The Ohio State Buckeyes basketball team just didn't have the killer instinct. Matta could rally the troops and the reason the Buckeyes lost so much, is he didn't inspire them.
This wasn't the kind of season a guy like Aaron Craft wanted to have, in his last season as a Buckeye. The team not only let down the fans, they let down Craft too.
Now Craft will leave The Ohio State University, with a bad taste in his mouth concerning his last season. Craft was one of the guys who always gave his all, when ever he played.
Matta should have been able to do more this season. The Buckeyes have some serious regrouping to do, and Matta has to start with himself. He should take a long look at himself in the mirror this off-season.
He has to do a better job of rallying his troops. And he knows it.....
