    So is Frank Martin still the worst coach ever?

    Look, I'm not setting out here to be a smartass with this post, and I had USC winning in all of my brackets.

    But I hope those of you who equate being a first-year head coach with being a bad, unworthy coach are eating some crow right now.

    Lets see how he does with his own recruits. He is probably a decent coach but it didnt hurt to have the Beas and Walker around.

    I still wasn't impressed w/ his coaching some of his players were out of control, and he shouldn't have left Beasley in w/ 3 fouls in the first half. He got lucky, and his players played great, especially Billy Walker.

    Hey, I agree with you and have all season. People have made Martin out to be some flunky who couldn't coach at all. Considering 6 of his top 10 guys are young he's done a fine job IMO. I didn't think they'd win tonight and their role players really stepped up tonight.

    I don't think too many ever claimed he was the worst coach ever, just the most unproven to get that job. Everybody knows why he got the HC job and it's pretty much a joke. He has some good talent and he's got two options - use what amazing jump-start on a career he was given or **** it down his leg like many think he'll do.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Well, something tells me that Tim Floyd and the Trojans probably aren't laughing too hard right now.

    Re: So is Frank Martin still the worst coach ever?

    Martin is my Big XII Coach of the Year. It's not just two players - it's the whole team. Look, two of Beasley's first three fouls were bogus, and the team didn't crumble. Martin's squad is intense, unselfish, and plays DEFENSE. Brackins, for example, would have to really rev it up to play for Martin.
    Floyd is deified on this board; he was the second-best coach tonight.

    Wow; I'm impressed - didn't think Floyd would lose this.

    I'm more convinced that Recruiting and 'recruiting stars' really do mean a lot.

    Martin seems to know what he is doing. I'll give him some credit.

    K state underperfomed this year. With that much talent they should have done better.

    Of course if he keeps the talent coming in everything will be ok.

    Certainly not cheering for him. I despise K-State, but the guy has been much better than I would have ever thought.

    I would agree. I think he did a decent job considering where KState has been but they have some serious talent on that team and they should have dominated some of the games they lost this year. Of course they've been through some stuff and they're all new to everything but I think they would have done a lot better with a better and/or more experienced coach.
