Mark Gottfried’s NC State basketball program continues to attract some major national media attention!!
Just today, two different preseason polls from national outlets – ESPN and NBC – have projected next year’s Wolfpack to start in the top ten in the country. I think they are assuming Leslie comes back. The excitement of college basketball has come back to Raleigh.
Just a note for all of the fans (and Lee Fowler and Jim Oblinger) with whom the bulk of SFN authors argued for years — if NC State starts the first week of the 2012-2013 basketball season at these rankings, it would be single-week ranking higher than ANY ranking that the great Herb Sendek achieved in TEN YEARS of opportunity as the head coach at NC State (and another six years at Arizona State, for that matter).
Can you smell what the Gott is cooking?!
And we ended up twenty in the final ESPN poll.
