I thought USC-E had a nice run a little earlier in the season?

i left fitz's site for the same reason. an absolutely toxic environment for anyone who would dare question frank and his methods.

that's where the 'cult of frank' resided. i'm not sure about today. but i can tell you media members kellis robinett (star), john curtz (kman), and cole manback (mercury) are all members in good standing, along with fitz himself of course.

frank is good a schmoozing the press, if you had not noticed. not bob knight.

and yes, fitz and currie did not get along. i know that for a fact.

i admit to watching frank's games from time-to-time for the entertainment he provides. it's like not being able to take one's eyes off an impending car crash. reality tv. :?

You win a correction. North Carolina lost to Villanova in the National Title Game on the amazing last 15 seconds. You do get partial credit for OU being in the Final 4 and getting trounced by The Wildcats.

Duke lost in the finals in the mid 90s and went below 500 the next year.

Of course, Krz missed most of the year because of an illness, or back pains, or something.

SC got hot last year...it doesn't make FM the next big thing in coaching. Shaka did the same thing at VCU a few years ago.

How quickly we forget! If Frank can get the kid who got Louisville into trouble eligible next year, he may have as quick a rebound as OU with Young.

They looked like they might be righting the ship in mid January, but home losses to Tech and Miss St at the end of the month pretty much ended their hopes.

That was a weird deal with Coach K that year. I’ve always wondered if there was more to that year than just a bad back.

I used to cringe at the way Martin would go nutso on the Beard. I often wondered what if Jacob just laid him out with a solid
punch to the nose.

I liked Frank for the most part, but i find it funny he is getting fined for pretty much saying that the official wasn't loyal to the SEC since that is where he got his start. Uhm, Frank, you might want to think about that a little.

Yea, Frank really knows what to say to the media. And, yes, Manbeck can't get over him either.
