Thad Matta Yells 'Heisman!' During Marc Loving Interview

Thomas DuffyFeatured ColumnistJanuary 4, 2016

Ohio State head coach Thad Matta clearly has his finger on the pulse of the Internet.

After Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey erupted for 368 all-purpose yards in his team’s 45-16 Rose Bowl victory over Iowa on Friday, some dude stood behind the Heisman Trophy finalist and yelled “Heisman!” during his postgame interview:

Matta did the same for Buckeyes star forward Marc Loving on Sunday.

The junior went for 27 points and seven rebounds in OSU’s 75-73 win over Illinois, and Matta was seen yelling “Heisman!” during Loving’s ensuing interview.
