Somebody’s gotta cover the game since Technician is too busy

2014.02.26_Gottfried pregame

Obviously we’ve got a lot of interesting stuff in our pregame entry linked here, but I wanted to get a little more to our readers as we work our way up to the 8pm tip-off tonight at PNC Arena.

Coach Gottfried started praising Carolina the first minute after Saturday’s win in Blacksburg, and he hasn’t stopped. I like the strategy and the approach — Carolina genuinely IS the hottest team in America and are going to be very difficult to beat. But, Gottfried went so far as to use the ‘David vs Goliath’ metaphor that I don’t know if I can that far. Nonetheless, it is hilarious to see the silence of the media now that the Tar Heels are playing as one would expect a super talented team with FOUR McDonald’s All-Americans to play. Remember how Dick Vitale and others were feeling sorry for their Roy Boy earlier the year telling us all how UNTALENTED these Tar Heels were? Hmmmm…..

The following is quick interview with coach that got posted earlier today.

If State is going to succeed tonight then Kyle Washington will have continued his strong play as of late. Washington has played with renewed confidence and energy over the last couple of weeks (starting with a great performance in the Carrier Dome). Washington has averaged more than 10 points and almost 5 rebounds a game in his last four outings. Conversely, in State’s visit to Chapel Hill last month Washington, Lennard Freeman, BeeJay Anya and JVD COMBINED for ONE BASKET and a total of five points. Obviously, ALL of the Wolfpack’s post players have to do better than that tonight.

Other than Washington, if State has/needs an ‘X-Factor’ tonight then I am going to throw out the name Tyler Lewis. Opposing teams have left Lewis WAY too wide open on the perimeter and Tyler has not yet made anyone regret the decision. Perhaps the big game atmosphere and elevated focus of playing the Tar heels could translate into three or four three pointers tonight that might change the landscape of the game?

State has won four in a row at PNC Arena, but the current betting line in Las Vegas has the Wolfpack a four point underdog with an over/under total of 149.5.

All of this ‘game stuff’ is taking a backseat for many of the traditionalists who sadly learned today that Technician did NOT publish an edition of the Daily Tar Hell. When I first heard this I could not believe it was true. But, it is true…and it is a friggin travesty.

Since our own students and Technician let us down, let’s turn to Twitter for a couple of poignant insights delivered with fantastic humor:

    Seriously? Almost all of the editorial staff is male, including the editor in chief. It has to do with terrible management this year and nothing to do with gender.

    Piss off with your ignorance.

    This is a sad day.
    Maybe the Technician has decided, like the Tarheels, that this is no longer a rivalry so no longer warrants the effort.

    Gosh Dang It. We Are the Red and White from NC State. Show some freaking pride in yourself and show the f up with all you gott and give them pansy arsed bitches some freaking hell. Chit man. Ya’ll kids are freaking embarrassing us elders. Get your chit together and your priorities aligned in the correct order.

    Don’t do jack, don’t deserve jack. Don’t do jack, well then you suck. You are not awesome, you are not the greatest future leaders, you do not deserve praise for posting some piece of chit “accomplishment” or “being present somewhere” on facebook.

    Be freaking big. Make it count in a big way. Get off your pussy asses and show the f up and give the holes a whole lot of hell.

    Earn your freaking own Red Blazer and stop making our’s less valuable. Get off your lazy assess and make it freaking count.

    Damn!

    a-dri-ard-i… oh a-dri-ard-i…. where forth are thou ???

    Perhaps as a “representative” of the Technician staff… one might find it beneficial to consider all the words in a sentence AND those “not’ used, and the contexts thereto before jumping to irrational and unsupported conclusions… or haven’t you taken English 111 over there in Winston Hall yet ??

    You might find the use of the conditional “may” combined with no statement that any such thing had actually happened… meaningful.

    Or you might get a job on sports talk radio one day….

    If you’re suggesting I work for the Technician, I don’t. I don’t even read the thing except when they come out with the daily tar hell.

    Your comment is extremely sexist with or without the may.

    Lighten up Francis. It was a joke.

    Considering your first, and only 3 three replies in the entire forum are those directly above, you might want to reconsider the prudence of jumping right in with no perspective on context or history. But hey, who needs wisdom when you have spirit.

    Hmm… Will he, or won’t he?

    Back in the 80’s…before photoshop…the picture of Dean Smith and the team naked holding basketballs in front of them was an all time Technician Daily Tar Hell classic. Shameful they didn’t go to the trouble this year.
