Martan on fan negativity
Jan. 13, 2020, | GCF Staff Report
A loss to Kentucky (12-3, 3-0) would bring the Gamecocks to 0-3 in SEC play for the first time since 2013-14, Martin’s second season. Naturally, the recent results have frustrated South Carolina’s fan base. Not that Martin’s gone on social media to read for himself.
Martin had this to say. “I don’t read chat rooms, I’m not into gossip.Tell me one positive thing that comes out of social media. So why do you worry about it? You have a job to do: interview me and interview players. Why are you listening to people who have no idea what we go through? Why don’t you go call the people who were positive three games ago when we just beat Virginia? Call them or email them. Send them a tweet and see what they have to say. Can you imagine if those people actually coached or played? The ones that quit with 17 games left in the season?”
Martin then added this team’s “that close” to turning it around and pointed to the one-point loss to the Volunteers in front of 19,000 opposing fans as Exhibit A.
