Fowler wins SE Athletic Director of the Year

http://www.wralsportsfan.com/ncsu/story/7788889/

This won’t take long.

If he’s so damn good at his *^$&#*$($ job, why can’t he get another one? Why was he fired?

The SE Athletic Director of the Year Award is now about as credible as the Nobel Peace Prize.

I guess now Lee can leave NC State saying he at least won something. Because God knows NC State never won anything of note while he was the almighty director.

Holy shit.

    Yours was more concise than mine, but we said pretty much the same thing:

    How many “we ran off a great AD” articles will be written now?

  3. GoldenChain 06/15/2010 at 4:04 PM #

    Seriously. You gave the reason last week. How do you think AD’s rate one another? If you said ‘wins’ I’d say you are WRONG.

    this should complete the martyr process for him

  5. WV Wolf 06/15/2010 at 4:12 PM #

    So the benchmark for best AD of the year in the southeast is no bowl game, no ticket to the big dance, no national titles, no conference titles in revenue sports and one conference title in men’s cross country.

    One of the criteria for the award is “Demonstrate the ability to inspire individuals or groups to high levels of accomplishment.”
    Oops.

    Was this an award for Lee Fowler or Lee_Folwer?

  7. TheAliasTroll 06/15/2010 at 4:19 PM #

    This is EPIC trolling of NC State fans. Incredible.

    What a stupid joke of an idea!!!! This organization has no credibility as a result IMO – just stroking their own with absolutely no justification even if it was voted before the firing! Their criterion must be to award the best cougar hunter in their midst. It certainly reduces the prestige of the award for those previously awarded.

    Guys, don’t worry, this was obviously only a competition in SE Wake County, or SE Raleigh, or SE Hillsboro Ave. It cannot extend any further than that…

    This is actually good news maybe that douche can add this to his resume and land a job somewhere, saving us some much needed cash.

  11. Tampa-Pack 06/15/2010 at 5:01 PM #

    I bet all those other schools are just kicking themselves over this. Not hiring him when they had all those chances. I mean just look at the on the field success….oops.. must have been the impossible circumstances that kept us from winning anything in all that time….

  12. jrummy 06/15/2010 at 5:05 PM #

    Sigh. Now we are destined to hear this crap from the media and opposing fanbases for several more years about us pushing out a perfectly good AD. And just wait to see how bad it gets if we get *worse* in football or basketball.

    And lol at the SE Hillsboro St AD of the Year ^^ (although I think Meredith College’s AD may have him beat).

  13. IrishPackFan 06/15/2010 at 5:45 PM #

    This HAS got to be a joke, right?! I mean c’mon!! Seriously?!? HWSNBN-II for frickin’ sure!

    Suddenly I feel like I’m in the movie Groundhog Day…again; seriously?!?

  14. burnbarn 06/15/2010 at 6:07 PM #

    I think Kennell may have refered to this just after Lee was let go. Maybe they let him stay until 6-30 so that he would get the award as NCSU AD…
    The legend grows!!

  15. Plz2BStateFan 06/15/2010 at 6:07 PM #

    This is absurd.

    If he can get a job it saves NC State millions of dollars. This is more than some bowls would give us.

  16. theghost 06/15/2010 at 6:25 PM #

    Dave Hart won it twice, so apparently they’ve already forfeited all credibility. That guy is a clown too.

  17. graywolf 06/15/2010 at 6:46 PM #

    OH the irony. The media will have a field day but in the long run NC State gets the last laugh because there isn’t a BCS school in America that is going to hire Lee and he will spend many days on the lake doing what he does best……fishing. Hey, maybe he coached the bass fishing team; that’s why he thought we were so successful.

  18. newt 06/15/2010 at 8:35 PM #

    The loser in all this is the guy who has to introduce him…

  19. RTPMedic 06/15/2010 at 8:36 PM #

    ‘And lol at the SE Hillsboro St AD of the Year ^^ (although I think Meredith College’s AD may have him beat).”

    Well, their football team is still undefeated…

    Look. The man has had a 10 year career at a large state university making several hundred thousand per and has personally been responsible for nothing that could be considered progress compared his peer group. Not only that he has traveled the country at someone else’s expense, gotten contract extensions, and is walking away with a severence package that would make many of us head to the beach for several years. Hell he DESERVES the award. Do nothing, say stupid stuff, piss off the bulk of your customers, get paid damn well for a decade, and walk away without needing to go to work anytime soon if ever. That my friends is one hell of an accomplishment. I salute you Mr. Fowler. Too bad we all couldn’t have been skilled enough to milk a gig for as long as you did. You won’t be missed, but you will be long revered as the gold standard of incompetence.

    “How many “we ran off a great AD” articles will be written now?”

    ^I wouldn’t be surprised if this is precisely the reason he got the award. Yeah, I know you had to submit nominees before such-and-such time … whatever.

    Like stated earlier, this is an epic troll.

    Randy – you really want to do something positive for NC State athletics? Lead us away from this culture of “it’s cool to bash NC State becuase they’re idiots … LMFAO har har har … everybody pile on … IT’S FUN! They even hate themselves!”

    This is a joke. Lee Fowler is a joke.

  23. Pacobee 06/15/2010 at 10:16 PM #

    Let me start by saying “don’t let the door hit ya where the good lord split ya Lee”. That formality out of the way, Lee was an outstanding at raising funds and improving facilities. My guess is that the credit should be shared between his former office and the Wolfpack Club. Shared or not, he did that portion well. As far as the rest of it, I’m glad he is now spending his payout. With any luck, our new Chancellor will bring in a fresh face that gets the needs of Wolfpack Nation.

    How long until the Western kickoff?

    Go Pack!
