    That was one giant last nail in Amato’s coffin.

    Chuck needs to resign today. He is by far the worst game day coach I have ever seen. If NC State cares at all about football, he needs to go.

    He can’t survive this, can he?

    wolfpack: I don’t know that is the final nail. Does our adminstration care? Can you see Fowler actually firing someone?

    How long are we going to put up with coaches that lose to down and out rival teams? There is no excuse for today. Losing to ECU next week will really be embarrassing. Fire Amato!!!!!!!!!

    I didn’t see the Clemson game, so I am taking the word of those who did that our O-line played pretty well. But today, they (again) sucked. That’s about all I can say. Hard to run, hard to throw, hard to avoid getting sacked, hard for a play to develop–if your O-line sucks. Couldn’t quite tell from TV how much of the problem was the tackles, but that wouldn’t be anything new.

    Just curious. Do we have any help coming on the line next year, or we doomed to another season of no-offense football? Because that is what it will be, I don’t care who the quarterback is. Perhaps a Burke or Beck will do a better job than Evans; perhaps not. But the offense as a whole will continue to go nowhere without an O-line.

    I have to believe that EVERYONE from EVERY school in this country knows that this should be the end. Everyone saw the mismanagement, nay, lack of any management whatsoever in today’s game. How could he not be fired?? Oh, wait, yeah, I get your point now. Our spineless jellyfish of an AD will probably let it go.

    You can sum up the State/UNC series in one sentence – “Their shitty coach outsmarted our shitty coach.”

    wolfpack: Amato will only be fired if the big time donors like Murphy, Stroud, Dail, et al make it happen. Do they care about the losing?

  12. jbwbubba 11/18/2006 at 4:16 PM #

    I give it 24 hours before we get a statement saying Fowler and co. are 100% behind Amato.

    unc has higher expectations for their program than we do…. bottom line

    Im pretty sure I just saw Chuck cry on TV. It was hard to tell with the glasses, but his facial expression looked a lot like he was crying

    I even feel like if this group is left in charge, why the hell would anyone care anymore. Those who should be looking out for the best interests of this university are doing such a sorry job that it is mind-boggling.

  16. BJD95 11/18/2006 at 4:19 PM #

    BJD’s short list:

    1) Bill Cowher
    2) Norm Chow
    3) Doc Holliday

  17. wolfpackbball 11/18/2006 at 4:20 PM #

    when we lose to this year’s tarholes, and our kicker is the player of the game, that speaks volumes.

  18. bb1983 11/18/2006 at 4:21 PM #

    How about we hire John Bunting just to make my day that much more fun…

  19. SixPack 11/18/2006 at 4:26 PM #

    Has anyone seen this pattern before ?

    1) We are favored.
    2) We don’t score in the first quarter and end up being outplayed and behind at the half.
    3) We get the ball on the opening 2nd half kick and do nothing with it.
    4) Make a little bit of a surge in the fourth qtr only to fall short again
    with a final inteception to kill the drive.

    Not to mention: 11 penalties (2 for illegal formations…after 11 games) and no touchdowns…as usual.

    And JED will be waiting with a contract extension for CTC after the loss to EZU next week !!!!!!

    “Im pretty sure I just saw Chuck cry on TV. It was hard to tell with the glasses, but his facial expression looked a lot like he was crying.”

    I thought so too. He’s probably crying because he knows he’s headed to the unemployment line. Just one more bad loss to the Greenville Hicks to make the disaster complete.

    we better get someone in there FAST as Butch Davis will most likely continue the beatings for several yrs. to come

    NCSU All Star coaching staff – and it saves Fowler from having to fire Chuck.

    Head Coach – Bill Cowher
    OC – Norm Chow
    DC – Chuck

  24. SixPack 11/18/2006 at 4:37 PM #

    CTC was crying because he feels so thankful that even after another embarrassing display of ineptness JED will cut him a break !!!!
