08:25 AM ET 02.15 | South Carolina's line was far from pretty on Thursday: Forty-six points, 18 total baskets, a fifth consecutive defeat, a tougher road to avoid another losing season. Perhaps hoping to deliver a jolt, [first-year coach Frank Martin] opened his press conference Thursday by shredding his team. "If you take (point guard) Bruce Ellington off our team, you'd probably have the 12 leading candidates for the starring roles in 'The Return of the Living Dead,' the zombie movie," he said. "I've been doing this for 28 years, nine of which as a junior varsity high school coach. That means I've dealt with 14-year-olds. I've never been more embarrassed to call myself a basketball coach than I am today."

several SEC teams in the same mold this year......is contagious....S.C. not alone....SEC will be lucky if they get more than two teams into March Madness......unless there is a complete turn around in the next three weeks........

THIS is what happens when you lose to <<gulp>> Arky!!


In all seriousness, SEC basketball is bad, but not as bad as the public perception, IMHO. Should get in 4 teams to the NCAA, and the future looks brighter at Ky, Gump, Arky, and LUS going forward. KY and Fla will still be the class of the group, but a middle-class will emerge in the SEC in the next few years.

No need to panic.....
