I missed his opening comments but Im listening to the Q&A with reporters.

Heres the paraphrasing

-He basically said he was grateful for Tanner to be his boss and that this issue was self inflicted
-He thinks its time for himself to mature
-I care too much about my players, and I need them as much as they need me
-I embarrassed my family, specifically mentioned wife and mother
-(asked what happens if this happens again) we didnt discuss that and if it does Martin is the only one to blame
-He doesnt think his attitude negatively impacts recruiting
-said it needs to be clear that he is wrong and this is his fault
-he says he works at the university and he understands he has a duty to conduct himself a certain way
-I dont let my players swear, if they swear in my presence Im not happy
-I ask my players to mature, I need to mature too
-I cant do anything else other than apologize

Admitting there is a problem is the first step to correcting the problem. Good for Coach Martin.

Frank Martin is a good coach and he needs time. He didnt create the mess that is our basketball team. And him being hard on his players is nothing that a lot of coaches do including Ray Tanner when he was our baseball coach. Unfortunately Martin got caught going ballistic by the TV cameras. Nothing different than what Spurrier does. When Martin starts winning 20+ games a year, this will be long forgotten.

It kind of sounded like he was trying to bring up the fact that he is Hispanic to make people feel sorry for him.

I didn't take that comment that way. It seemed to be more of the responsibility he feels as minority (read: latino) coach in the premier college athletics conference, and owning the fact that he is paving the way for others to follow him.

But this whole thing is crap. All these thin-skinned ass people need to get a grip. Hell, the Pope cusses and steals so now what?!

I like Franks fire and enthusiasm and the same people who cuss the athletes when in the privacy of their own home take issue with him cussing one face to face.... Pot meet kettle

I went back and watched the video after listening to it on the radio and I completely agree with you. He feels a great responsibility to represent other people of Hispanic descent in a positive way because he is one of the few that has actually become a D-1 college coach.

you made a mistake about what you thought he ment... that being said we need to just let you go... you might come in here again and do something like that again, and disrespect the entire messageboard, it's posters, and all the gamecock images to my right. Sorry but for all the previous great posts you have made... in this thread, we can not accept such things.

The issue is two fold. One, he can't attack an individual player on a personal basis in the presence of the public, tv or otherwise. Getting in a players ass is different than demeaning him. Secondly, these outburst show a lack of personal control that he alluded to in his PC. You can't ask players to be under control when you can't control how you speak to them yourself.

As good of a coach as I think he is, if this doesn't get corrected, he will see players leave, and he will not be able to recruit. Kids will not want to be subjected to that kind of public abuse.

I really took it for face value. That there are not a lot of Hispanic coaches and he feels he should set a better example.

Is that your first reaction when you find out someone's Hispanic? Sympathy?

Not sure what it is with some people.. they seem to feel they are above people... I think it's the fact they can hide behind a keyboard. I'm always amazed by people that are willing to cast doubts on others without looking first within themselves. As sports fans we believe coaches and sometimes players should be perfect.

Glad that some of you would just much rather see the man leave then see if he can actually do something with the team, or do what he feels needs to be done for himself. These are the bad type of fan unfortunately every university has.

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.
