    KSU basketball

    Most people are heavily discounting the KSU basketball team next season. But not KSU fans. They are posting that they believe that they have the potential for a national championship run.

    Associate coach Hill stated, "We're geared up for a national championship run."

    “I look forward to winning the national championship,” Bill Walker said. “That was my main goal since I went to college.”

    An article http://www.sportingnews.com/yourturn/viewtopic.php?t=198334
    from Sporting News supports the KSU's AD decision to hire Martin. In fact it states that it was the only logical direction for KSU.

    I dunno about a national title, but they have the tools for a sweet 16 run IMO. If their staff can coach AT ALL, they will be a solid NCAA tourney selection.

    They will obviously have talent, but I wouldn't discount the loss of Huggins. My guess is that that statement will come back to haunt him in a serious way in the not too distant future.

    Re: KSU basketball

    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.”

    Re: KSU basketball

    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.
