Frank Martin Calmly Rips Gamecocks

Comments

On Thursday night, the South Carolina Gamecocks lost at home to LSU, 64-46. It didn’t sit well with their head coach and notorious hothead Frank Martin, who seemingly let out all his pent-up frustration from a abysmal first season in Columbia (12-12 overall, 2-9 SEC).

At the post-game conference, Martin solemnly took the media through a scathing critique of his team that might even make Lamar head coach Pat Knight blush. Martin’s best quotes were as follows:

“I’ve been doing this for 28 years, nine of which were as a junior varsity high school coach. That means I dealt with 14-year-olds. I’ve never been more embarrassed to call myself a basketball coach than I am today.”

“If you take Bruce Ellington off our team, you’d probably have the 12 leading candidates for starring roles in ... The Return of the Living Dead, the zombie movie. If you took Bruce off our team, our guys would probably win Academy Awards for their performance in that movie.”

“If this was the NBA, we’d fine them, we’d take their money, we’d release them and we’d say good luck finding another job.”

“If I’ve lost them, then they better disappear. Because it’s going to be hard for them to be here next year if I’ve lost them 10 months into the job. ... I haven’t lost Bruce, I’ll tell you that. I haven’t lost Michael Carrera, even though he’s a freshman and he runs around with a chicken with his head cut off half the time and doesn’t know what happening. But outside of those two guys, if I have lost them, they better figure out where home is at because obviously it’s not going to be here.”

This offseason should be fun!
