In case you haven’t noticed, Frank Martin is a passionate person. When Martin feels strongly about something, you know. He’s not a beat around the bush type of guy. Wednesday Frank Martin met with the media to preview the upcoming basketball season. A majority of the time was spent with the usual preseason coach speak about how certain players have improved and how he is excited to see what they can do on the court this season; the standard things you here from most coaches in mid-October. But Martin also spent time addressing the 3,000 pound gorilla in the room: Do people still care about Gamecock basketball? After all, this is a program that hasn’t won an NCAA Tournament game since Richard Nixon lived in the White House. Another topic Martin tackled: Do they even play competitive basketball in the SEC? . I don’t want to spoil it for you, just take a listen below. I will say that Martin makes a pretty darn compelling case. I’ve said it before and I will say it again: Frank Martin is going to win at South Carolina, sooner rather than later, too.
