Debbie Yow brings ‘Wolfpack Unlimited’ in her first day

What a difference one person can make.

As we discussed in this thread that you should take the time to read, all of a sudden many of the points that SFN and others were making while Lee Fowler was employed are finally acceptable to be made by many in the media. Amongst the points – extreme disorganization, lack of professionalism and commitment to winning.

Turn the page to Debbie Yow and many of the deficiencies that currently exist in the department.

Raising the expectations for Wolfpack Athletics will be at the top of her agenda

It didn’t take but a couple of minutes before our readers noticed the change indicated by the new slogan in west Raleigh – ‘Wolfpack Unlimited: Refuse to accept the status quo’ – that is a direct slap in the face of the way the Athletics Department has been run the last twenty years.

Thank you, Debbie Yow

    I imagine after she arrived it didn’t take long for her to start wondering WTF??? Hope she does as much cleaning house as she feels is needed. Let her have at it. Stay out of her way. Give her time. She can’t f@#k it up any more than it has been.

    Good luck Debbie! Pullin for ya!

    I’m with you coach. I imagine her meetings with the current staff to be something like this…

    A new AD could probably get rave reviews with those same lines at almost any school. BUT, I do have to wonder if someone has been whispering in her ear and pointing out a few hot buttons to hit early and often.

    Don’t you wish that a few those things had been mentioned here a dozen times or so? ;-)

    With the slogan, she demonstrates that she’s clued in to how things are done and at the same time states it’s unacceptable.

    I’m impressed.

    I look forward to being even more impressed soon.

    Wow, an AD not immediately alienating invested (blood, sweat, tears and $) voices. Maybe she gets the fact that a top tier, technology centric university, will have educated and financially stable supporters using electronic medium.

    Now a platform with a rival reeling, in a major revenue sport.

    So far I like it.

    When success starts happening, she will have Wolfpack United, for sure.

    It makes me excited to be a Wolpfack Fan.

    Let the bodies hit the floor

    Open up a can, Debbie!

    She has said all of the right things so far and appears to be zeroed in on what needs to change in the athletics department. I’m looking forward to seeing the changes she makes and hopefully the improved results that follow. I particularly liked the fact that she made a point of saying it isn’t just coaches but also administrators that will be evaluated. Everyone is on notice.

    Accountability has finally returned to W. Raleigh.

    It must be a completely different atmosphere for her to be at a department that is in the black and allows her to really focus on hacking the bs out of it.

    Here are a couple of 7/21 articles from the Raycom Sports Blog NCSU page that are most interesting:

    http://ncstate.raycomsports.com/blog/

    “There was a come-to-Jesus meeting last week when Deborah Yow started her tenure as North Carolina State’s athletic director. Reliable inside sources say the meeting was short and to the point. It commenced, Yow was formally introduced and then sat down and gave way to NCSU Chancellor Randy Woodson, who gave the marching orders. The new Chancellor put every coach on the spot and pointed out they were all under employment to take their programs to the elite level. In other words, they were hired to ‘win’ — not at all cost, but under the NCAA rules and regulations and in the spirit of sportsmanship and quality competition.”
