I believe we can get better. If I hear we are young 2 season's from now, I will have a real issue then. Until then, Martin can do what he does best, Coach.

Default Re: Would you consider the Mens Basketball Team

Sadly I voted YES. USC's basketball program is the worst in the SEC and one of the worst in all of high-major college basketball. Nebraska and Northwestern are perhaps the only two schools in high-major college basketball with worse programs.

It is unquestionable that we are the worst men's basketball program in the SEC. Every other school in the conference has made the Sweet 16 since South Carolina joined the SEC. Meanwhile, South Carolina hasn't even won a game in the Big Dance since winning a consolation game against Southwestern Louisiana during the Nixon administration! We also have the least number of conference wins since 2000.

There is no reason we should be as awful at basketball as we are.

Nebraska just beat Ohio State last night. So, maybe it's just a battle between us and Northwestern.

They have the same problem we've had for the past 10 years or so. No one on the team can shoot. It's just all a bunch of athletes running around. A lot of bad turnovers and no real scorer.

I don't like seeing our head coach call our one senior a f**king dumbass after Brenton Williams CLEARLY tried to call a timeout with 5 seconds left. Refs however, did not see it and missed it. Frank goes off on Brenton instead of the referees. He does this way too often and I'm getting fed up with it. Sometimes, you should back up your players. With how much he yells, and how little technical fouls he gets, it shows that most, if not all, of his rage is directed at the players.

Martin's coaching style consists of getting in players' faces and cursing them out, sitting on the bench with his face in his hands, and long periods of blank stares into space. I see very little actual coaching going on, he's too busy stomping his feet, wringing his hands, and pitching a fit like a spoiled child.

I would too if my team didn't put forth any effort.

I don't think so. Every school has one bad team doesn't it. Even having a bad team, we have a pretty big name coach. And our conference is not really known for basketball.

I like it, because I agree with him. Brenton makes a lot of dumb plays out there. Martin didn't see him call time out either, because he made a weak attempt at a TO signal, didn't stop and yell "Timeout! Timeout! Timeout!" like he was supposed to, and started dribbling again like nothing happened. He screwed up and got chewed out for it, like he absolutely should have.

It's funny how a lot of the people that agree with Martin calling his players f'ing this and f'ing that, are the same people that go ballistic if someone remotely disagrees or criticizes them in a thread.

Im old enough to be able to go ballistic, but I highly doubt you were referring to me to begin with.

I didn't like the Martin hire, and I am not in the hire Marshall Camp either. I wanted the best person for the job period. And honestly Martin has really done nothing to change my tune. I am guessing he gets 4 years, hopefully he proves me wrong, but next hire needs to be a guy who knows how to build a program, not ride the coattails of the previous coach.

Martin made the NCAA Tournament 4 times in 5 years by bringing in his own guys at K-State. Martin has been to the NCAA Tournament more times than our program has in the past 25 years.

We are insanely lucky to have him. He's a very good coach. Does he get caught up in his emotions and anger sometimes? Yes. But he pushes players to not be complacent and become better at winning games. He gets a lot out of them. Dawn Staley does the same thing with the women.

LOL, he road Bob Huggins man, plain and simple. Huggins got KSU lots of pub and good players, Martin used it to his advantage. He has never had to build a program. Honestly I have set to see him be a good X & Os coach.

Maybe he will change my opinion, but I just don't see it, never have.
