Thad Matta Tie?

    Does anyone know why Thad does not wear a tie anymore?

    Was wondering the same thing.

    My only random guess, maybe it aggravates his neck problems.

    It probably has to do a lot with his back problem.. He also might have problems buttoning his collar. I do not think that he is the type of man who ask for help even though he needs some
    in doing the simplest of tasks.

    It could be that he doesn't care to dress up all that much to start with. Basketball is one sport where the coaches really dress up still, you don't see coaches on the football sideline wearing ties and fedoras anymore. The dressing standards for coaches are getting relaxed little by little. Bob Huggins - who Matta has claimed is a good friend of his - is obviously one of the most visible proponents of a more relaxed attire for college basketball coaches. I don't read much into the lack of tie. I would imagine it would be even better for Matta to just wear slippers to the game if his attire choice was related to his conditions. I'm sure Matta has people who could help him tie his tie if he needed that, I seriously doubt that his condition is the reason for this - he's had the same condition for several years but this is the first where he has gone tie-less.

    A first year coach has to wear a tie. With Mattas record if he doesn't want to he doesn't have too. I hate ties but I don't have Mattas cache.

    My first thought when I saw this thread--the guy is just a small step above wearing a velvet robe and a pair of sandals on the sidelines. :lol:

    Said he is doing this because he is a heavy sweater and it makes him much cooler.

    I spied a gold chain around Thad's neck at the IU game yesterday.
