I don't know what Matta is doing, but that guy has been bringing in a ridiculous amount of talent to that basketball program. What I thought was getting lucky early on, has become a trend with the newest addition of Jared Sullinger who is tearing it up as a freshman. Obviously having the state of Ohio has helped, but he has been pulling talent from outside the state as well. I don't know much about Matta or the way he coaches his team, but I am more than a bit discouraged in the manner in which he is able to reload in Columbus. I know they have good basketball facilities, however, he also needs to be able to sell it. Don't know if the board has any insight here.
"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
