PackPride.com has posted the Rick Barnes transcript.
“I don’t know if I grew up a State fan, I think I grew up an ACC fan.”
“Obviously my very first job in college coaching was with one of the great Wolfpack’s of all-time, Eddie Biedenbach. Through all that I’ve always been a fan of NC State, obviously.”
“I know this, if there was any job open today, if the NC State job was open today, and Herb Sendek was somewhere else, he’d be one of the first people they would call. He’s going to do it right, he’s going to do it in the way that the players are going to love it, and you have to admire him for the way he goes about his business.”
“I’ll be quite frank, I don’t think it has ever been fair for the way he has been treated. I think he is one of the most underated coaches. I think he has poured everything he’s had into the State job, and I don’t think they can find a better coach to coach their team than him.”
