    Frank Martin postgame quotes

    I love Frank Martin. Guy is hilarious. I bolded some stuff I thought extra entertaining.

    On Scott Chistopherson last three-pointer…
    “The screen was too deep on the floor. Our ball-screen defense is called by the guy guarding the screener. Jordan (Henriquez) made a call, and Angel (Rodriguez) did what Jordan asked him to do. You have to give (Scott) Christopherson credit, but that is not what cost us the game, what cost us the game is selfishness, immaturity and nonsense for the past two days.”

    On his team’s performance against Iowa State…
    “We are bad. I wish I could give you a rocket science answer or explanation of why we got beat, but you have to give credit to Iowa State. There is a reason they are above us in the conference standings. They have proven that they are a better team than us. We would be here until tomorrow morning if I tried to explain everything that has been bad with us for the last two days. My staff did their homework. We came in here, and I did everything within my power to get our guys to focus in the last two days. I even let them off after an hour of practice two days ago. I was trying to be positive.”

    On Jordan Henriquez...
    “He has been great lately. He and Brian Rohleder were the only two who broke a sweat in practice yesterday. I think there is a reason that he is as engaged as he is right now. I think everybody else thought there was a party here today to celebrate us beating Missouri. I think that is what 98 percent of the team thought. He protects the rim. I could not take him out of the game today. When we took that lead in the second half, I had to make some substitutions to get some guys a breath, and now all of the sudden, we went from up six to down five. It is just unfortunate, but he is moving around and grabbing rebounds.”

    On his team letting down...
    “As soon as we took the lead, we went right back to where we were at. You saw little snapshots of how we have played for the last three weeks early in the second half. As soon as we took the lead, we went back into celebratory mode.”
    On his team’s lack of focus
    “It is embarrassing; our inability to focus on our team. Last year I banned Twitter and now I am on Twitter not so much that I want people to read what I put out there but I did it to learn what it is about and learn about our guys as people, based on what they send and how they communicate with their friends. I just told them that I hope they get on Twitter and put all the nonsense that they put on it after the Missouri game. Some of our guys were putting stuff on Twitter before we got on the bus. It is just a bunch of nonsense. How is that focusing on your team and what is important? It is a shame that this team refuses to embrace success.”

    Re: Frank Martin postgame quotes

    Frank Martin is my second favorite coach in the league. He gets a lot from his teams. Almost thought he might talking about fat little girlfriends in some of those quotes, but I would bet he gets his guys back on track for their remaining games and represents the conference well in the tourney. I sure wouldn't want to play them if I were an 6 or 7 seed from the almighty big 10

    Even though he looks like a psychopath, he really always fesses up and speaks the truth. He was on the Scott Van Pelt radio show a day or two ago, and he's a good guy to listen to.

    He and Bill Self are fantastic. Both are humorous and extremely honest.

    He's very passionate. Not really different than CPR.

    Re: Frank Martin postgame quotes

    I want to hate the guy for the way he acts during games and because he coaches K-State, but everything else I've ever heard from him makes me like him. Probably my favorite coach of a Big 12 opponent.

    Thanks for posting. I wanted to see what he said, and he didn't disappoint.

    Re:Frank Martin postgame quotes

    Those twitter bites are awesome (if true). Shows the difference between a player's mentality and a coach's!

    I like the guy as well, great coach. They are always such a pain in the *** to play. Reminds me of Johnny Orr a bit, just says what he thinks.

    Yep, besides Hoiberg of course, these two have been my two favorite coaches in the Big 12.

    Huggy Bear will not be bad either for next year. The KSU WVU games should be fun.
