Tim Fitzgerald calls his friend, former Kansas State basketball coach Frank Martin. Martin seemed ready for a long stay in Manhattan until a new university president hired John Currie to be athletics director. A toxic relationship between Currie and Martin drove Martin after a loss in the Round of 32 of the 2012 NCAA Tournament to become the head coach at South Carolina. Martin built the Gamecocks from the ground up and put the long-suffering program in the 2017 Final Four, something no one in Columbia, South Carolina, expected.

Hosts: Tani Levitt and Tim Fitzgerald
