I gotta tell you, hoop fans.. I really like Coach Martin and Coach Self. Bill Self for the obvious reasons. But Frank Martin for his grit and his guts. He has given Cat fans another 20-win season from the opportunity they gave him. He's got street smarts and basketball smarts, and I would venture to guess Denny Clemente and guys really like playing for him. Martin certainly stuck up for them before the 'Cats loss to Texas on Thursday in Oklahoma City.
He said on Wednesday if the other major conferences have their top 4 seeds in the NCAA Tournament, then Kansas State, being the 4 seed of the bunch, should go to.
I think he's right.
Martin is a coach who's saying to all of us.. throw out all that RPI computer stuff and play fair. No doubt the Big 12 is as big as conference as they come in this country. So before Selection Sunday, oh, you experts in your ivory towers with your schedules, brackets and your computers, give K-State a ticket to the big dance. We'll be watching. Ralph
