Frank Martin was very upset with the way his team prepared for and played against Vanderbilt last week. But now it’s a new week and Martin has moved on to the next challenge for his team: A road game at 17th ranked Missouri Tuesday night.
“Any day I get to wake up I am excited about what I do and I am excited about those guys,” Martin said. ‘”Listen, I wasn’t happy with how we prepared before Vanderbilt. That doesn’t make them bad kids. Their giving me everything I can ask of them and as long as they can keep doing that I will wake up and be excited about being their coach every single day.”
USC is 1-3 in SEC play. Mizzou is 2-2 and coming off back-to-back losses to Ole Miss and Florida. Tuesday night’s game tips off at 7:00 on ESPNU. Below is Martin’s Monday update of his team. Later we will post his in-depth impressions of Missouri.
