    Frank Martin

    They showed Frank Martin's halftime speech last night and made it sound like he was really kicking some ***. He was mad but certainly not out of control, but I have a feeling he gets a lot more emotional than what they showed on camera at halftime last night. He catches a lot of crap, but the guy gets the most out of his players. I've heard some of them interviewed and apparently the players mimmick Martin in one of his fits, and he knows about it, so maybe he's not such a bad guy. From the interviews it looked like the players actually really like him, despite the reputation.

    LOL. Agreed. And I really want to like Greg McDermott. But I don't like him.

    He's the kind of coach I would want.
    The ISU women's team do impressions of BF all the time, but I don't think Martin is as laid back as Bill off the court.

    I didn't care for his speech one bit. It wouldn't have motivated me at all.

    Re: Frank Martin

    Frank imposes his toughness on his players like nobody I've seen in awhile. Almost like Bob Knight in the 80s. It's pretty amazing.

    People thought he'd flop after Beasley and Walker left. Not so much.

    I had the same feeling about you when we first met.

    Re: Frank Martin

    After their Big Monday game against ?? (Texas maybe?) he did his postgame intereview with a Pullen mock beard on. He's a hard *** no doubt, but that doesn't necessarily make him a bad man. I wonder how many of the pot shots the guy gets come out of jealousy rather than anything else. People can question his methods and his assistant coach's salary all they want, but you can't argue with the direction that program is heading.

    I am in the same boat. I picked them to play in the National Championship game.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Did Kstate ever send us a bottle of champagne or something for taking McD before they did?

    Re: Frank Martin

    I really like him and wish McD had 1/2 his fiery attitude. Also think Frank is one of the most underrated coaches coming into this tourney and glad to see him getting some pub.

    I think Kstate is a great example of what happens when a team and school support a coach and buy in to his coaching style. They should be envied.

    Re: Frank Martin

    I don't know if I like a guy more that I don't want to like than him. I think I might be jealous that he is not our coach.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.
