|Aaron Craft and Thad Matta share a special moment.|
Ohio State point guard Aaron Craft became the most beloved athlete of the Buckeye nation on Sunday with his game-winning three pointer against Iowa State in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Most beloved until college football season, that is. Which brings up the almost Urban Meyer-like show of affection shown by Buckeye head basketball coach Thad Matta, whom channeled Meyer's manlove of Tim Tebow expressing his appreciation for Craft by calling for his actions to be immortalized in Columbus. With a statue, no less.
“I hope someday they put a statue in front of our building of him,” Matta said on CBS after the game. “Coaches were telling me he's exhausted. He's too tough to be tired. What a big-time shot.”
Well, Ohio State may want to wait until Craft leads the Buckeyes to the NCAA Tournament championship. At least Meyer waited until Florida won the 2008 BCS title before sticking Tebow's "Promise" speech on a plaque on the outside of the Heavener Football Complex. Despite all of the upsets in the tourney this year, there are still enough hurdles between the Buckeyes and their ultimate "One Shining Moment."
