Frank Martin doesn’t like predicting the weather by looking in the past. He doesn’t like using last year’s Final Four season as a barometer for what he expects of his kids this year either. Judging teams by their past success doesn’t hold up when they break the mold and have a Cinderella season like the Gamecocks did last year.
“If South Carolina were judged on getting to the Final Four what do you think we would have been judged before this year, that’s not a reasonable barometer,” Martin said.
Adding to the complicated off season is the departure of seasoned players like Seniors Sindarious Thornwell and Duane Notice. Martin said defensively they’ll play the same but his team’s offense is completely different so it can adapt to the current players on the court.
