Hot or Not Follow-Up

Last week we ran an entry discussing the “hotness” of the seats of the football coaches in the ACC. Today we
wanted to give a tip of the hat to Dave Sez for his insightful comments on the topic with a week of more information available that probably solidifies Larry Coker’s position atop the “rankings”.

    Chuck’s own behavior has definitely added to the heat under his seat.

    I agree that Coker is still hotter though, I don’t think we’ll be seeing him on the Miami sidelines too much longer.

    Personally, I’d like to see Chuck go too, at the end of this season, but I think he’ll be around next year.

    I swear, Chuck Amato is John Bunting’s only saving grace. That, and the lack of interest the place he coaches has shown in football overall. And people here are placing Amato’s head on the block in front of other less successful coaches.

    There are too many problems at this stage for C Amato, but they could be overcome. Sound coaching and discipline on the football field would be a good place to start. Also fans, who have no choice in the matter right now anyway, getting totally behind a whole football team, coaches included, and riding this one season out.

    I read the link provided above. I do not see all the of darkness and all of the behind scenes DRAMA that is totally injected into those “unbiased” comments. I don’t anyway, but many Wolfpack fans are once being led by their noses, and letting a coach’s personality over shadow all of the facts of the matter.

    Amato may not be “the man” but I’m sick and tired of NC State’s own fans helping the media to drag him through the mud. The media is working it’s magic once again, and NC State fans, with regards to their own people, are some of the most gullible anywhere.

    How stupid we are? All of the media plainly begged the question just a few months back. How much more obvious could it have been than in terrible loss of our most recent basketball coach? Weren’t we considered stupid, in every media outlet out there, for ever letting a coach of that calibre go???

    Well, here we are again.

    Some of our “fans” are our worst enemies…they hate our players and coaches. The anonimity of the internet makes it easy for spoofers to pose as fans, but we have plenty of rotten fans at C-F every game, constantly second-guessing every coaching decision and making the game miserable for everyone around them. This was true when I had season tickets during the PR years and I can only imagine the hellhole it must be now.

    I seriously how our fans are smart enough to push for a change at AD prior to changing our head football coach. Do we really want Lee Fowler steering this ship anymore?

    Good Wolfpack stuff today from the New York Post!

    Love this quote from Joe Giglio

    “Hiring another coach ranks somewhere behind a colonoscopy on Lee Fowler’s list of things to-do.”

    I’m hoping!!! Good article, it states exactly the way I felt before LAST weekend.

    We’re getting closer and closer to ‘past time’ for these guys to wake up and give their players some direction that will allow them to execute winning strategies for an entire game.

    The OC is the one on the hot seat as far as I’m concerned anyway. If it takes him years to develop a scheme that involves players with only four years of eligibility, added to that the ‘all your eggs in one basket’ win or lose, approach to personell we’ve seen so far, along the lack of confidence he seems to inspire through his own play calling on the field, taking all of that into consideration, I can’t really back the guy up.

    I hate to say it, but chances may be dwindling down for the coaching staff as a whole because of the offense. Somebody had better be chewing on someone else’s rear end and demanding that they turn over a few more pages in the playbook, to get this offense out of neutral and heading in a forward direction for a change. The defense has not yet shown the ability to compensate for the offensive strategy of playing it too close the vest and that seems to be all that Trestmen has had to offer to this point.

    His offense, or some abbreviated form thereof, had better start making it’s presence known, and quickly.

    If we lose badly this weekend you will find LF hiding under his desk!

    Note to Lee: You should have known the job was tough when you accepted it. If you are incapable and afraid to deal with firing and hiring step aside and the sooner the better.
