  1. Impressions: SEC media day 2

    Eamonn Brennan

    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- I like my team. That's the first line of any coach's typical media day script. On Thursday, Florida coach Billy Donovan tossed that script into the shredder. It's not that Donovan went rogue. Nor was he particularly negative. O...

  2. SEC office wants better noncon schedules

    Eamonn Brennan

    The SEC was not very good last season. Some of that was because of Kentucky's surprising struggles, and because of the eventual season-ending knee injury suffered by Nerlens Noel; when Kentucky isn't Kentucky, the SEC won't win any of those oh-so-fun...

  3. Five observations from Wednesday night

    Eamonn Brennan

    It's like our Saturday observations, but on Wednesday instead! A few end-of-day thoughts from another tremendous evening of college hoops: 1. Kansas stole one at Oklahoma State. Don't get it twisted: I'm not saying the Jayhawks didn't deserve to w...

  4. Frank Martin world's biggest Pitbull fan

    Eamonn Brennan

    At this point, when I hear or see Armando Cristian Perez, the rap/dance musician better known by stage name "Pitbull," I reflexively wince. Rarely has a musician so apparently mediocre become so ubiquitous so quickly. It seems like you can't step ...

  5. Frank Martin comes back at Calipari's tweet

    Eamonn Brennan

    Earlier this week, Kentucky coach John Calipari fired off one of the best, funniest and most thinly veiled recruiting pitches ever delivered via Twitter. It went a little something like this: I want to apologize to all the recruits this week. I'm ...

  6. Kansas State already ready to compete

    Eamonn Brennan

    Former Kansas State coach Frank Martin has been exasperated. Any time anybody writes about his decision to move from K-State to South Carolina, any time he fields questions about the move, he is asked about some supposed breakdown in his relationship...

  7. Ronald Nored hired at Indiana high school

    Eamonn Brennan

    The coaching carousel is in full swing these days, with jobs opening and vacancies filling and Illinois news conferences just begging to be held. (How has this not happened yet?) But forget Frank Martin and South Carolina. The best hire of the week g...

  8. Frank Martin: Best Gamecocks coach ever?

    Eamonn Brennan

    OK, OK, I know, I know: Frank Martin has yet to coach a game at South Carolina. You have to coach a game at a school before you can be placed in the annals of said school's greatest all-time coaches. Coaching at Kansas State is not quite like coachin...

  9. Southern Miss band members punished

    Eamonn Brennan

    In other, much less endearing band-related news, Southern Miss took action against five members of its pep band that chanted "Where's your green card?" at Kansas State guard Angel Rodriguez in last Thursday's second-round loss to the Wildcats. The pu...

  10. Can Frank Martin swear off swearing?

    Eamonn Brennan

    At the end of the day, oh well: People swear sometimes. It happens. Get over it. Those who spend too much time trying to protect their kids from swear words are probably focusing on the wrong things, parenting-wise, or at least wasting their time: Yo...

  11. Tourney preview: Diamond Head Classic

    Eamonn Brennan

    College hoops doesn't totally shut down over the holiday. In fact, eight lucky teams get to spend Christmas in Hawaii, where they'll compete for top honors at the annual Diamond Head Classic. OK, OK, so this isn't quite the Maui Invitational. The fie...

  12. Huggins: K-State should be 'happy I left'

    Eamonn Brennan

    When a coach leaves a program, it's natural for fans to feel resentment. Marquette fans should be thrilled with the state of their program under coach Buzz Williams, and they are, but they aren't shy about expressing their distaste for former coach T...

  13. Wally Judge lands at Rutgers

    Eamonn Brennan

    There are always high stakes in any coaching hire, especially one involving a program like Maryland, one popularly perceived as a sleeping giant. But there are always small stakes, too. File this bit of information under the latter: Former Kansas ...

  14. K-State transfer Wally Judge narrows choice

    Eamonn Brennan

    Remember January? Specifically, remember how down, how utterly irredeemable the Kansas State Wildcats seemed on Jan. 31? Frank Martin's team had been disappointing all season. The Wildcats' offense was ugly and stagnant, which led to losses in eve...

  15. Larranaga thought Martin was Miami's fit

    Eamonn Brennan

    You didn't need to be a college basketball insider to do the simple math: The Miami men's basketball job was vacant. Frank Martin, Miami native, was no doubt interested. Bing, bang, boom, let's all go home, coaching search over. (This is basically wh...

  16. Will Miami move on Frank Martin?

    Eamonn Brennan

    It is the opinion of this blogger that most, if not all, of the pertinent 2011 coaching intrigue is behind us. The biggest programs with the best shots at luring top candidates away from other desirable schools have all made their moves, and none of ...
