Will the real Frank Martin please stand up?

Stealing some song lyrics from my favorite rapper Eminem… “May I have your attention please? May I have your attention please? Will the real Frank Martin please stand up? I repeat, will the real Frank Martin please stand up? We’re gonna have a problem here…” If you were to type in the name “Frank Martin” […]

Happy 1st Birthday…

…to my website!! It was one year ago today that I officially launched my first post on Coreybrinn.com, a 2,292 word story about myself, which is still posted on the “About” page on the top left of the website.  Several days later I traveled to Manhattan, Kansas to visit friends and see the KSU Wildcats […]

ESPN College GameDay, live from the Octagon of Doom

In 2005, ESPN decided to spin-off of the success that College GameDay was having in college football and create a college basketball version of the show.  On January 22, 2005, the show aired on the campus of the University of Connecticut Huskies.  Now, in its sixth season on the air, the show has made its […]

Purple Wildcat Power

I have talked many times on this site about my strong passion for Kansas State Wildcats basketball.  It has not always been this way, but started in April of 2006 when good friend Bob Huggins was named Head Basketball Coach in Manhattan, Kansas.  After one season in the Little Apple, Coach Huggins left to accept […]

ANYTHING for the Mountaineers

Dedication? Paying $11.95 online to stream the West Virginia Mountaineers game and then finding an S-Video cord to hook the laptop up to a television. That was me tonight as I went over my friends the Roberts house to watch WVU take on in state rival Marshall University. The game was being played in Charleston, […]

Ole Miss vs. Georgia in Athens

Life on the road in conference play for a Division 1 College Basketball team is always tough. They are in a strange town, an unfamiliar arena, and in front of a full house of screaming fans.

First trip to Phillips Arena

Despite my love for the game of basketball I cannot seem to force myself to enjoy the National Basketball Association (NBA).  The style is not what I am use to, with no full court presses, half court traps, or changing defenses by possession to show a 2-3 zone or 1-3-1 point drop zone defense.  And […]

Ramblin’ Wreck Reloaded and Ready

What a difference a year can make for a Division One NCAA College Basketball Team.  Unlike many aspects of the sporting world, a top recruiting class can be a quick fix for a team in need.  The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets and Head Coach Paul Hewitt brought the fourth best recruiting class in the country […]
