Interesting article. I didn't see anything in there about national championships. While he did say that it was the logical direction to take, I don't think it was necessarily a sparkling endorsement for the hire.
It was a very risky hire, but they were in a good position to take a risk. No where to go but up after losing Huggins.
It was risky for everyone that stuck with KSU as well. Very well could be career suicide for the players and coaches.
Talk of national championships is just a sign that they are all young and inexperienced.
“We have enough talent to win it all, anything less than that, and we haven’t accomplished anything.”--Bill Walker
Walker’s take on Martin: “I’ve been around enough teams to know he did more than any assistant coach I have seen. Basically, he was our second coach this past season.”

Stewart and Hoskins are good players. You add the talent they are bringing in and they do, IMO, have the potential to win it all. The questions will be can a new coach get the players to set aside their egos and play for a common goal or will the players be simply trying to showcase themselves to the media.
