Sendek News Finally Hitting the Media

StatefansNation ran it at 7:05 pm.

Pack Pride wasn’t too far behind (their articles don’t include time stamps)

Seth Davis says it about an hour later on CBS.

The Wolfpacker wasn’t far behind.

ESPN runs it at 9:41pm.

WRAL runs it around 9:30pm.

WTVD finally switched their headline from Sendek “may” leave to Sendek leaving after 10:15pm

News & Observer finally gets it at 10:22pm and was so hurried to get it on their site that they didn’t have a single paragraph break in their article.

Charlotte Observer still has no confirmation at 10:32pm.

    Here’s the best though, from the FoxSports website (

    “N.C. State has made the NCAA tournament four consecutive seasons. The Wolfpack have lost the past two years in the second round — including this season to Texas.”

    Ok, let’s see…5 years straight now…and last year we won our second round game. Looks like I WON’T be relying on FoxSports for any ACCURATE info!!! LOL!!

    Thanks for keeping us up to date!

    Did I miss something? Who is the “Mac Campbell, Wolfpack Club President” quoted by Fox?

    “What will State fans do? They can start by saying thanks to Herb Sendek for building a winning and highly respected program.”

    Don’t you love how the media makes Sendek look like god? I think they’ve been talking to Lee Fowler too much, it seems that Herb won 2 National Championships and 10 ACC titles now. Just like college basketball didn’t happen till 2001, right LF and the media?

    SFN definitely was the first.
    The pack pride article has a timestamp on the source file, [click View -> Source]
    “date: Sat Apr 1 16:44:10 PST 2006”, which is 7:44pm EST
    The ‘server date’ is not the stamp of the article, see Fetch Info date/time.
