It is no secret that Billy Packer is a personality that attracts a lot of opinion and controversy amongst fans. Our most recent Packer-related conversation can be found by clicking here.
But tonight, you can officially throw out almost all of your Packer criticisms. Tonight, Billy Packer enters the StateFansNation Hall of Fame (at least for a while). I am not kidding.
In this article on CNNSI, Billy Packer stepped to the plate and delivered a grand slam in his last at bat to finish the game by hitting for the cycle. Packer earned an all-access card to any conversation amongst any of my closest NC State friends.
And what about the lack of support Sendek received from those who should have been his most loyal enthusiasts? Will that scare away anyone?
“Nobody is going to be bothered by that, at least the person who’s hired won’t be,” Packer said. “If somebody is bothered by that, he shouldn’t be a candidate anyway. You’ve got to be more competitive than that.”
Thank you, Billy Packer!!!
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
I swear to God that I honestly think that many of the whiner-wolves out there honestly thought that NC State was going to have to shutter our basketball program after losing Herb Sendek. They literally believed that nobody in the country would come to State because we fans weren’t happy with a coach that created the second worst performance in NC State history and one of the worst three performances amongst coaches allowed to coach a decade in ACC history.
Thank you, again Mr. Packer.
