Don't Put Me In, Coach

My Incredible NCAA Journey from the End of the Bench to the End of the Bench

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


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 (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!

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 13, 2012 – Titus, a four-year Ohio State University basketball benchwarmer, first garnered national attention for Club Trillion, his humorous blog detailing his adventures riding the pine. Now a staff writer for ESPN’s Grantland Web site, Titus recalls his mischievous days on a perennially powerful squad, where he did everything—including declaring himself eligible for the NBA draft—to distance himself from the scrappy, just-happy-to-be-here walk-on stereotype. Thanks to a Will Ferrell–loving coach who tolerated Titus’s antics, the young man enjoyed himself, “pulling pranks on superstar teammates, routinely falling asleep during film sessions, and basically spending every day with the team trying to figure out exactly how much I could get away with.” The Maxim demographic will revel in Titus’s rebellious tales, which come with a heaping portion of snarky, bro-friendly prose, scatological humor, and pop culture references. Those who can overlook that style—a difficult request, perhaps—will find an enthusiastic narrator who colorfully reveals that the unifying concept of a team doesn’t always triumph over an array of personalities. And under all the pranks and immaturity, Titus is a likable, forthright narrator.
