Thanks to Buckeye basketball beat reporter par excellence, Bob Baptist, we have this excellent quote from Marquette coach Buzz Williams following the Golden Eagles 52-35 loss to the Buckeyes today:
“I have the utmost respect for coach Matta. Love him. If he talked about himself the way most guys who sit in this chair do, he’d be on every Dove commercial there is, but that’s not his nature. He’s a great husband, great father, done a phenomenal job, and he’ll be in the hall of fame before he retires.”
And Williams is right. Thad Matta should be cleaning up on the endorsement circuit. He should be showered with offers.
This needs to happen.
And, please, follow Baptist on Twitter. He makes posts like this possible.
