I'm sure you'll get all kinds of respect now because people know you are "south carolian," since the USC basketball team scratched and clawed it's way to a 14-win season. I'm sure they'll even overlook your awful spelling and grammar because they know you are trying your best. It's sports, man. It's cute that you want to think that this actually makes a statement about people of your state so you can feel like close to the players and their accomplishments, but it doesn't. It's just a statement about this particular group players and coaches. That's it. It doesn't say anything about you. We're just bystanders watching a bunch of guys trying to make plays to win at a game.

We do feel very close to our players. Here in South Carolina, students who attend USC are all considered family - whether athlete or not.

I'm in agreement with GamecockUltimate. They did and still do represent our University well, with class.

Let's focus on the NIT and all of the sports we excel at during the spring months.

What don't we excel at? Bad sportansmanship.

You should check your own grammar before ridiculing others for the same thing.

Proud of our team! Looking forward to next year.

I'm really glad the season ended the way it did.
I felt like a lot of my questions were being answered.
I could see Frank's system yielding results.
For the most part Frank stuck to is guns and was patient...giving his methods the time they needed to sink in.

On a side note...I have consistently been impressed with Notice's body language on the court this year. He's got such a great flow to his game and ball handling. He moves like hot butter. Obviously he's got elements of his game he needs to work on but there's an underlying instinct to his game that feels like he was born to be on the court.
Something about his demeanor on the floor reminds me of Dr. J. Just so natural...like a fish in water.

Can't wait for next year...

Well said. Thornwell is also a natural.

Our post play really came along the last couple of weeks, as well. I don't know if we will have any attrition this off-season(Ringer???), but with the players returning we should be much improved next year.

No youre right, my grammar and spelling was bad. I should probably edit and check my posts but i dont, its a message board not a thesis. That said clearly youre as wrong with the message of your post as i was with my grammar. Your last two posts have been two of the dumbest i have seen on cockytalk. Who are you tell people who they can and cant be proud of. On that note, your idea of who can and cant be proud is stupid, i can be a bystander and be proud of another person or persons' accomplishments and it doesnt mean that i am patting myself on the back or feel i was a reason why, although fan support makes a difference, facilities make a difference and they dont just appear, fans help pay for those. So again im not trying to say anything about me, i am trying to be happy for them, and recognize their improvement and growth.

There's going to have to be some attrition to make the scholarship numbers work out. Unless, of course, someone volunteers to walk on.

I may need to be corrected here but if I recall Duane chose to come to SC because he would not have to play the PG; however, he accepted this role after injuries and has done a nice job. In that case, along with the fact he is a freshman, I would give him a pass on the "out of control" play that he displays from time to time!!!

I didn't realize that. It will be interesting to see how and when this will play out.

Yeah, as it stands now, it breaks down to:
3 freshmen (Stroman, Blanton, Sheppard)
7 sophomores (Thornwell, Notice, Henry, Shaw, Ringer, McKie, Theus)
3 juniors (Chatkevicius, Kacinas, Carrera)
1 senior (Johnson)

So, there's at least one move to be made this offseason.

In all fairness, Brenton Williams played out of control when he first arrived and he was a Juco. Notice looked great this year considering his experience level and having to play out of position.

Heart this team had. The problem is sloppy play (Turnovers) and the soft touch after grabbing an offensive rebound. We get that cleaned up I think we will be fine. Go Cocks!

Looks like Coach Martin is still heavily recruiting the big man Delarosa as well, so if he chooses us that'd make it two moves....

True, although I'll be surprised if we land Delarosa. We got in with him late and probably had too much ground to make up and not enough time. Seems like St. John's is the team most likely to land this guy, which is understandable.
