    Well we have a $1.5mil+ package to offer so there are plenty of good coaches available making considerably less.
    Hard for me to believe the chatter for xh that NO ONE would want to come to Raleigh.

    thanks for correcting the linkage…

    What I gather from both the article and the profit tables – We can save $$ AND boost our W/L record and NCAAT eligibility by playing cupcakes.
    We all knew Sendek was smart

    This is all making sense now…
    By scheduling sub-par teams away and hosting ‘minor league’ tournaments, we can beef up our W/L record and increase chances of NCAAT eligibility, but most importantly, receive large payments from the visiting teams while spending less money on difficult road games.

    NC State basketball hasn’t been about competition and achievement, its been about making $$$.
