    I like that we are included in that list, but am not optimistic.

    Yeah, I noticed we’re last. Good to be included, though. And I like that Gottfried doesn’t just give up and say, “Hey, UNC and Duke want him, so let’s look elsewhere.”

    Very classy of him to keep all three local schools on his list – whether or not he’s interested ! You know those three have been making the effort for the past couple of years, so it’s a nice gesture to throw the local guys a bone. That being said….

    Who knows what moves these kids these days?
    * However, if he’s looking for trophies, I have to think that State’s got to go a little farther in the NCAAT a couple of times to make a kid think that he can be the missing piece in a championship team.
    * If he wants to play with the highest rated players in the country, he’ll probably lean toward UK.
    * If he wants to play for the best coach in the country, he’ll lean toward DU.
    * If he thinks he looks good in baby blue …. well, we know what that means.

    I don’t know his motivations, but unless there is something pulling him other than just recruiting, I don’t see him getting any farther west than Kentucky. I’d think the Bruins are the least likely, all things being equal.

    I look at the list and I hear the song from Sesame Street

    One of these things is not like the other
    One of these things just doesn’t belong

    I’d like to think I wouldn’t have that reaction in another five years.

    You’d hope the very recent, very extreme success of a 6’8″ SF would give us some credibility.

    Dammit, Texpack beat me to it. Sad to say, that’s the first thing that popped in to my head.

    Tarheels got a lock on Kinston.

    But Les almost got Jerry.

    Why not?

    State has a lot to offer – with exception of the tradition in comparison to duke and unc.

    We know Gott has a big set when it comes to recruiting.

    Indeed. Having a “make ‘em say no” attitude often serves one well in an array of affairs.
