  1. Thornwell and Notice disagree. Booker could shoot it... It means athletic and raw, probably not a great free throw shooter or shooter but active on the the glass, defensive end and fills the lane well while being a decent passer and feel for the game.
  2. He did not have any stats for the game, Sterling had a good game, thought Pickens and Ellis looked like men in the middle and Johnson is playing on another level, he has looked really good in both games IMO
  3. The most dominant performance I have seen out of our D-Line in a long time, they consistently controlled the LOS and most impressive to me they very seldom rushed themselves out of the play and finished when given the chance! I think our DL and LB's are going to make our secondary look good this year, just my opinion but I see some draft picks on that D, some high draft picks! Brad Johnson was all over the ball along with Staley seemed to be around the ball every play and I really like what I see of Debo and Kaba as well as Louis Jr, thought Webb and Pickens looked good in the middle while our end play was just more disciplined IMO with Burch, Enagbare and Sterling making plays and disturbing the offensive play calling. It was against a lesser opponent but we took care of business, looked well coached and besides from a few inopportune penalties we looked disciplined especially in the first half. Our defense looked really good on all 3 levels, they tackled well and were physical while our special teams was special and our offense efficient. All of this without the SEC's leading returning rusher and our starting QB as well as a few held out for disciplinary reasons that will contribute this year and I would say we have a ton to prove against ecu before we travel to Athens to abuse Uga...
  4. If we are going to have a good season we have to blow this team out and I believe the coaching staff will have no problem running, running, running the score up as we are deep at the RB position with RB's that can take it to the house... Harris, Lloyd, White and McDowell can all take it to the house. I also think our strength on defense is their weakness on offense, we are deep and talented at DL, we should exploit this early and often. I predict no less than 3 turnovers with no less than 5 sacks. The defense puts up 14 points and the offense puts up 42 for a 56-3 win, GO COCKS!
  5. Agreed, I did not start the thread that regardless of intent is a slap in the face to Coach Martin and sets up Staley v Martin discussion that is futile and not needed IMO!
  6. Just like I never said Frank would be better than Dawn or could connect to the players the way one of the greatest female players of all time could but once again here we are having the conversation...
  7. So the vice versa would also be laughable if you use your logic but here we are having the conversation...
  8. Yeah and Coach Martin could also coach and have success coaching the women's team as he would not have half the competition...
  9. Maybe football goes the way of other sports and starts having preseason games with the likes of Citadel and Wofford, those schools still get a payoff and some publicity... I think the whole thing is teetering on a ledge, once you allowed players to be paid, all of this is new territory and with change comes... Without a doubt college football and athletics as a whole is about to have a huge facelift!
  10. I waited my entire life to see South Carolina win an NCAA tourney game, my entire life and Coach Martin took us to the Final Four on the cusp of playing for the trophy! In the process he won more NCAA tourney games than all our previous coaches combined, he won our first NCAA tourney game since 1973, the year I was born other than that no love for Coach.... He has more .500 season in the SEC than all our other coaches combined, he has put more players in the NBA than any coach since McGuire and it is not close! He brings talent to Columbia, he does not cheat and has exceptional character in my opinion hence why he is a very well respected coach among his peers!
  11. Coach Martin did not get to spend much time with that team, he had a pretty severe case of COVID from what I understand and then fought it again. I remember commenting to a few friends and discussing how Coach Martin looked like death with his buzz cut and was sitting on the bench with no color or strength.
  12. Coach Beamer did not come into a program absent of talent, if the coaches can coach them up and the players react well to Coach Beamer and staff we should have a much improved team. Our interior line on both sides of the ball should, I stress should be SEC caliber across the board with expectations of high end All SEC caliber players by year end on the DL. I really like the size of our interior LB's and DB's but the depth at those positions is my biggest concern for this team. We have a nice stable of RB's that If we play as advertised with a heavy run offense, we could sneak up on the SEC and have a very good year compared to most expectations. I really like the transfers that were brought in to provide some experience and leadership for this young team. The way our fans are all in behind the coach and team fully will go along way in "changing the culture", Coach Tanner did the GAMECOCKS well in hiring a former GAMECOCK imo! I have to admit I was on the fence with this hire but believe Coach Beamer has done all the right things in managing this team from the day he was hired and I will also admit I did not know he was the son of Frank Beamer, the apple does not fall far from the tree!
  13. You couldn't educate my little niece on basketball, now take your analytics, get out your mothers basement and go outside for a spell, maybe learn how to play the game of basketball a little, idiot! It would be a lot easier for you to say you don't have a clue who we could hire than ranting at me like an idiot! The fact is we went from 1973 to 2017 before we won an NCAA tourney game, we were moments from going to the NCAA title game and you would like to run the coach that accomplished this out of town, that makes you a huge DUMBASS in my book! I will ask you and everyone on this thread who are you going to hire that is a better recruiter, better coach and more respected coach than Frank Martin... Or you could spit your facts and show how demonstrative you can be towards those who disagree with your OPINION!
  14. Start with one and we can go from there or list them all, I'll wait!
  15. All you have is an opinion, all anyone has is an opinion and I think your opinion sucks and is clueless! The first group of numbers, facts as you want to call them were incorrect so I did not look much further, your bad! I do not need to refute your awful opinion, you would be one of the guys that forced McGuire into retirement telling everyone how we could get someone better, our facilities are better than not making the NCAA tourney every year and he never finished under .500! We did not win a tourney game until we hired Martin and you want him to be gone after a year in which he battled a pandemic. CHEW on this, we have been in the SEC since 1992 and Martin has finished over .500 in conference more times than all other coaches combined, similar to NCAA victories, Martin with 4 all other coaches 4... WOW!!! Your idiotic statement that you think our facilities, conference and budget could get us more than 2 wins and that I think that is the best we could do is just stupid, dumb, ignorant when you think about Coach Martin being the most successful coach in our history, you would like to go another 30 years without an NCAA win chasing the next coach who would then be chasing the legacy of Martin, CLUELESS!
  16. The 2nd time you said he has a losing record here, 153-133 and we had 4 SEC wins this year, maybe you should not try and convince anyone of anything because you are clueless! I did that hoping someone would bring up Dave Odom, so the other coach that had a record of proven post season success that we ran off, HOW DID THAT WORK OUT, HOW MUCH GREENER WAS THAT HORN GRASS????? I would have loved to see Odom lead the talent rich team of Archie, Downey, Muldrow, Frederick and Raley-Ross.... I also think the committee would have put us in the tourney had we not run Odom off instead Horn took us to the NIT despite winning 20 games and being tied for the second best record in the SEC but hey don't waste your time trying to understand, just whine and tell us how we should do better, can do better if we just fire our coach. Once again who you going to hire that can recruit better talent, is more respected and has proven they can win with talent? Don't waste your time because you can't!
  17. So he was asking for a raise? No one said but Kansas St, simply stating he had proven success in the tourney and without a doubt more proven than any coach we have had or have the possibility to hire, change my mind
  18. Yeah, you make the rules on what facts are relevant in this argument Karen, sorry???? Wow!
  19. He has only coached at South Carolina?? I think he is going to have a loaded roster with a few swiss army knife inside out players that will make it his best defensive team as a head coach.
  20. Only Felton and McGuire have better win %'s of coaches with more than 1 season and Martin owns half our tourney wins.... What other coach had Covid twice and was successful, not every team had a coach catch Covid so not every team delt with the same protocols. I have never heard a Frank Martin coaches kid say one negative thing about the man, not have I heard Martin blame his kids. I have heard him hold them accountable, I've heard him try to motivate them through the press but I have heard him on many occasions that it starts and ends with the head coach! His system is proven and his success in coaching kids is undeniable, his success in holding kids accountable is undeniable, his teams consistently get better as the season progresses and play their best ball at the end of the year! Next years team could have a bunch of hungry athletes competing in a healthy competition for playing time with a good mix of youth and experience if Coussinard and Bryant return like I believe at least one will with high Hope's both come back with Lawson for a shot at greatness
