Fans are turning on Martin already. You have obviously not watched any games. They play as hard as any team I've ever watched. The talent level is just not there to win yet but it will be shortly

I really think that those folks are very few in number. Unfortunately, ignorance often speaks the loudest.
I'm not disturbed in the least that a small handful of Gamecock fans are questioning Coach Martin's performance. Unanimity on any subject is very rare and they're entitled to their opinions. All but a handful of posters recognize that Coach Martin brings a switch to a gunfight nearly each time out. It will no doubt get better, sooner rather than later.
Spurrier...I appreciate him plenty
Unfortunately.. every fan base has there share of discarded mental retardation.

I find it disturbing that some total imbeciles call themselves Gamecock fans. But I suppose that's true in any fanbase.
I agree with you 100%. I went to my first game of the year today and was right behind Coach Martin. He is passionate about his job. The problem is talent. We are not as tall and the goal we are shooting at seems a little smaller than our opponents, even in warm ups. Coach will get this fixed. On a side note, Michael Carrera looked really good.
Other than a couple of losers on game threads, I haven't come across anyone being that ridiculous. Whether that's what the OP was referring to or I missed something, I don't know.
Frank Martin's the best thing to happen in a month of Sundays to a program that's been largely a dumpster fire for nearabouts 35 years. We sucked it up today and no one's sicker about that then FM2. I've no idea anymore whether this program can ever become consistently strong again, but with Martin as coach, Tanner supporting him, and our current facilities, it's the best chance we've had since the good old days. But it's gonna take a while at best.
I sat with a KY fan, pretty damn attractive fan, in fact, tonite (watchint the end of the KY/TAM game) and she just happened to be from Bowling Green. She was a bit modest and mature and when I asked about our and their former coach.....let's just say she was relieved when he left. He would have been relieved at some point. His high point was picking up an excellent recruit due to that recruit's offer from another school being pulled at the last moment. Since i dont know much about BB I beleved her as she had no reason to lie.
I'm a Frank guy assuming his second year (and even the third) will be better and from there out the team improves. No more irresponsible contract extensions as in the past tho.
I agree. I've watched five minutes of Carolina basketball this year (Clemson game), and it was the least talented college basketball team I had ever seen. Give the guy a break (and some time).
100% agree about the team playing extremely hard. Problem is only about 3 of them are talented a enough to see court time in the SEC. I hope he can bring in talent that can make the style of play really pay off.

Who is our, and KY's former coach?
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
He said she was from Bowling Green. He's talking about Horn.
When did Tubby Smith coach our Gamecocks?
He was an assistant under Felton, I think.
