Martin Goes Bye-Bye

Kansas State really had something special in basketball coach Frank Martin. So it’s not too surprising that he is leaving. And I don’t mean it like “K-State is small potatoes and he is going to a big program.” In fact, he is going to a pretty crappy program – South Carolina. He states he wants the challenge of taking a last place team and building them up….something to that effect. But something just stinks of Kansas State screwing this up. After all, it’s not like he had gone all the way with Kansas State. I understand that there was a riff with Athletic Director John Currie and that Martin had been saying he wanted out of Kansas State for weeks. He didn’t even listen to a pay raise.

Martin was one intense and interesting dude. He made Kansas State relevant again and he will be missed.

Back to mediocrity, folks!
