University of South Carolina head men’s basketball coach Frank Martin has been suspended from his coaching duties for Saturday’s game at Mississippi State, Athletics Director Ray Tanner announced today. Martin will not accompany the team to Starkville.

“The one-game suspension is a result of inappropriate verbal communication as it relates to the well-being of our student-athletes,” said Tanner.

Associate head coach Matt Figger will serve as acting head coach when the Gamecocks (11-19, 4-13 SEC) take on the Bulldogs (13-17, 3-14 SEC) in the final regular season game of the year. Game time is set for 4 p.m. ET.

Martin was only going to put up with the lose fest for so long. I say let him off his chain. It’s time to go old school, channel Bobby Knight, and start jerking twerps around by their necks until they put forth a winning effort.

He could always threaten to make them cover up their ghetto tattoos. I hope he tells them at the beginning of the season that they better prepare themselves in the classroom because not one of them is going to the NBA.

Always the most up on Gamecock sports, aren’t you? Tell us some more about our basketball team. And you should know enough about our baseball team after last weekend, so let’s hear that, too. While you are at it, tell us more about that countdown clock your minor league, half-wit, redneck, cheerleading, used car salesman football coach thinks is a good motivational tool.

So you’re saying you see NBA caliber talent on the team?

I’m not one bit interested in baseball, Dirtpecker or Tater. But I realize the Dirtpecker knee-jerk reaction is to label anyone who speaks ill of the Dirtpeckers a Clemson fan.

But I give you a 9.5 on your rant. Throw a few “fucks” in there and you could have gotten a 9.7.

I don’t label you a Clemson fan, I label you the pussy that you are

not mad are you Bro?

Squishy the pussy March 7, 2014 at 1:13 pm

mad, not at all. Why would I be? Squishy is and has been a little pussy for a long time. I’m just here to point it out to him over and over again. Why are you jumping in?

Squishy123 March 7, 2014 at 1:20 pm

And people got tired of your broken record 5-6 threads ago. I just respond to you because I know it gets your garnet panties in a bunch and raises your blood pressure.

Are you going to cry because he jumped in? What difference does it make… who’s the little pussy now?

Squishy the pussy March 7, 2014 at 2:39 pm

trust me pussy, in no way does it raise my blood pressure as you think. You respond to me because you are my bitch and I have conditioned you to respond. And as for above if you are going to respond to me about a quote I made, make sure I am the one that actually made the quote. you replied to the wrong one dumbass. thank you for the laughs as always and my blood pressure is lower than your pussy!!

oops “*yours not your”

He’s always angry, if he weren’t he’d be miserable.

Squishy the Pussy March 7, 2014 at 2:43 pm

Squishy123 March 7, 2014 at 1:22 pm

” tell us more about that countdown clock your minor league, half-wit, redneck, cheerleading, used car salesman football coach thinks is a good motivational tool.”

So what coach are you talking about if not Dabo? Is there another minor league, half-wit, redneck, cheerleading, used car salesman football coach that I don’t know of?

Squishy123 March 7, 2014 at 8:38 pm

Well I’m waiting, you have stupid responses to everything else, why did you skip this one? Because it made you look dumber than a bastard child Dirtpecker football player majoring in African American Studies?

Too bad Tanner doesn’t get to listen to Coach K’s “communications” with the officials. The Duke AD and Swofford are scared of K. Maybe Tanner would straighten him out.

He is an embarrassment. Once a coach starts calling the kids names it’s lost. If Frank Martin came to my door when I was 18 to recruit me I would have hidden underneath the bed with my shotgun.
