It's time for some of you to wake up. The basketball team is atrocious under Frank and it's not getting any better. If it wasn't for Thornwell, we would have no hope. Frank's recruiting will take more hits for this and our horrible play has scared away any recruits we were going to get. Our program has no momentum right now.

A coach was suspended for one game. I get the feeling you think he was blindfolded and flogged. It's not that big of a deal. FM will serve his suspension and life will go on.

I like Coach Martin and believe in his coaching skills...But lets face it...His mouth is a sewer in public places and that is not good at all....Its not like he is hanging out with all the guys and drops F Bombs.....Just get on your players asses with a little cleaner approach ......Coach Martin is not going anywhere......I think Coach Tanner would state the same.....But when you have boosters and season ticket holders ringing your phone off the hook at the ADs office you have to do something...

Default Re: Frank Martin has been Suspended 1 Game...

Coaches curse. All (or most at least) of the great ones do. And they curse at their players. It's a way to demonstrate the seriousness of a point or the gravity of a situation. I don't personally care for the name calling - I think that's too much of an individual attack not specific to basketball - but as long as the player(s) aren't harmed and they understand the context and motivation behind it, why should I, as a fan, care?

Other folks are right - if the episode isn't on tv, then there's not a problem, but because it's all over the national media it has to be addressed.

If there was indeed pressure by boosters to suspend Martin, then I'm afraid we're seeing exactly why our basketball program is in the shambles it has been for decades: sabotage. Via meddling "outsiders" who think they know more than insiders because they watched Frank McGuire teams play (purely speculative regarding the proposed age range of the saboteur[s]). There is a reason we haven't been decent in forever that goes beyond simply hiring the wrong guys and I've suspected meddling money over the years. This would just go to provide more evidence that hypothesis is right.

The team is getting better. They aren't nearly as bad as last season and have had a chance to win most of their games.

In her first several seasons, Dawn would blister her players in a timeout. Heard more than one F-bomb from her during games. Of course, those games were lightly attended and rarely on national tv so nobody knew or cared.

Definitely. Anyone who doesn't see improvement isn't watching the games, only reading the next day's headline.

Again, you don't know that. It's very common for coaches to curse at players in practice.

Exactly.

People can't complain about what they don't see/hear/care about. Dawn isn't changing her coaching style any time soon either. If players can't handle it, they know where the door is. I know a few players in the Dawn Staley era who were told the same thing during arguments.

I dunno about Staley, but I've definitely seen SOS (and some assistants) use some colorful language at players on the sidelines


Real easy solution to this-



That way no one can see what he says.

I like Frank's intensity, but I'd rather not see him belittle players, publicly. Yelling is one thing, but I think he crossed the line with Duane. Dawn Staley became a slightly more laid back coach and maybe Frank can, too.

He got 1 Thornwell, he can get more Thornwells or guys as good and they we'll have a team. If you have a really good player other really good players will be interested in playing with him. Johnson is supposed to be really good too.

Completely justified, IMO. Calling the kid an a**hole completely changed the way this will be viewed.

If you have already had to issue an apology about language, why would you have an outburst like that? Personally, I think this is going to have lasting ramifications. It can't help that's for sure, and I can assure you it will be used against us in recruiting.

Also, if this were any other coach, we would all be blasting them.
