There had to be a reason he left. Bad admin/AD/etc

Didn't get along with AD, right?

RE: NCAA/NIT Tournaments
Kansas State is the #2 school in the state. The gap between Kansas and Kansas State is greater than the gap between UNC-CH and NC State. Kansas has won 3 NCAA titles, K State 0. Kansas has been to 14 Final Fours, K State 4, most recently in '64. There are not many recruits in Kansas, so you must recruit out of state against Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, etc.

Perhaps Frank Martin saw the potential in SC no one else had seen. The other state school is a football school in a basketball conference. If a SC kid goes to an ACC school, USC doesn't have to play against him.

Virginia was terrible in basketball until Terry Holland got there. He kept Ralph Sampson instate and started an expectation of winning. Frank Martin is doing the same at USC.
