Ohio State hoops picked up a tough win over Illinois 75-73 on Sunday, behind 27 points from forward Marc Loving. The win gave Ohio State their sixth-consecutive victory and put them at 2-0 in Big Ten and 10-5 overall.
Buckeyes’ head coach Thad Matta, a big follower of Twitter memes, was feeling pretty chipper after the win, and decided to mess around with the Big Ten Network’s post-game interview with Loving by channeling Stanford guy and yelling “Heisman” over and over again. To his credit, though, like Christian McCaffrey, Loving didn’t let the random background yelling get in the way of his generic interview answers.
We can only hope that this now somehow becomes a trend from Matta. He should reenact a different overused internet meme after every Ohio State game this season.
-Buckeyes lose a tough one? Matta wears the Michael Jordan crying face mask.
-Ohio State wins on a buzzer beater? Matta does Hotline Bling dance.
-Reporter asks him how he feels after the win? Matta starts dabbing.
The possibilities here are endless.
