Publisher's Summary

An irreverent, hilarious insider's look at big-time NCAA basketball, through the eyes of the nation's most famous benchwarmer and author of the popular blog ClubTrillion.com (3.6m visits!). Mark Titus holds the Ohio State record for career wins, and made it to the 2007 national championship game. You would think Titus would be all over the highlight reels. You'd be wrong.

In 2006, Mark Titus arrived on Ohio State's campus as a former high school basketball player who aspired to be an orthopedic surgeon. Somehow, he was added to the elite Buckeye basketball team, given a scholarship, and played alongside seven future NBA players on his way to setting the record for most individual career wins in Ohio State history. Think that's impressive? In four years, he scored a grand total of nine - yes, nine - points.

This book will give readers an uncensored and uproarious look inside an elite NCAA basketball program from Titus's unique perspective. In his four years at the end of the bench, Mark founded his wildly popular blog Club Trillion, became a hero to all guys picked last, and even got scouted by the Harlem Globetrotters. Mark Titus is not your average basketball star. This is a wild and completely true story of the most unlikely career in college basketball. A must-read for all fans of March Madness and college sports!

What the Critics Say

"Mark Titus knows a lot of personal secrets of mine. If he revealed any of them in this book, I will kick him right in the testicles. I’m not joking." (Greg Oden, #1 overall pick in 2007 NBA Draft, 2007 1st Team All-American)

“Of all the players I’ve coached in my career, Mark Titus is one of them.” (Thad Matta, head basketball coach at Ohio State)

“You want me to give you a quote? I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. You’ve been riding my coattails for years, so of course you want to put my name on your book to sell more copies.” (Evan Turner, #2 overall pick in 2010 NBA Draft, 2010 college basketball National Player of The Year)

    "just plain funny..."

    Great entertainment. One of those books you could just listen to straight through. Not sure how he did not get kicked off the team....but great that he did not. Really funny and will have you laughing to yourself and having others wonder what the heck you are listening to.


    Really well read.

    "Funny"
    If you could sum up Don't Put Me In, Coach in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, Sarcastic, Enlightening


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I don't know that I would change anything. It was enjoyable to listen to.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I think where he is locked in the bathroom because he was eating Greg's food and how he got out of getting his face punched in..


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no

    "Seriously Funny!"

    Hilarious must read for any basketball fan or fan of any team sport. I started reading and couldn't stop until i finished (sort of speak).
    Mark Titus takes the readers into the inner workings of a top basketball program from the safe angle of one of the biggest, and most committed, bench warmer I've ever heard of. It is absolutely funny and insightful at the same time. No pretensions, no agendas, no over grown egos to put in perspective. This guy is pure in his commitment to stay irrelevant and trick the world around into letting him enjoy the ride with minimal effort from him. Love it!

    "light hearted and fun reading"

    If your a buckeye fan its a fun book to listen too. However I would rate this PG / R due to some of the sexual comments made.

    Story
    "Fun for Buckeyes or college hoop junkies"

    Many very funny stories. Overall enjoyable and nice mindless listening. Interesting hearing details about the guys you watched play for OSU for the last few years. And I have been a Thad Matta fan, but am a bigger one now.. You are reminded often that the writer is about 23 years old as he regularly says things like, "I never heard something like this, or saw so much of that, etc.. in my Entire Life." If you love OSU like I do, it is a good, fun, albeit raunchy listen. Oh, as for the raunchy, don't get it for your grandma or 8 year old. Author states his audience is 16-34 year old males, and there are many sex, body part and bodily function stories..
