* First, a quick tip of the hat to Section Six who threw together a couple of quick hits that are enjoyable and alleviate our need to come up with more here. (Link)
* Q: What player will NC State’s defense miss the most this season? A: Linebacker, Stephen Tulloch. Congratulations to Tulloch for signing with the Tennessee Titans. (Link)
* This read from Technician Online regarding Josh Powell is an interesting one. It is nice to see Powell may have (publicly) softened some on his feelings toward NC State’s Herb Sendek as we highlighted in this entry.
Looking back on his final season with the Pack, a season that finished with State losing to California in the opening round, Powell said the team was full of talent. So much talent, in fact, that he said there wasn’t one player that stood out.
“We had a very talented team, all the guys were special,” Powell said. “We had a lot of versatility — one through five — everyone could do everything. I wouldn’t say there was one player that was the best while I played there.”
Being able to have a versatile player at all five positions was very important to the Princeton-type State offense, Powell said. Playing for former coach Herb Sendek was something Powell said he enjoyed.
However, after learning of his departure from the program after this past basketball season, Powell said he thinks he chose the best option.
“He made the best decision for him and his family,” Powell said. “Him being in a new situation will be a lot better for him. He’ll be able to do the same if not better at Arizona State. He will get them back on track.”
