“A wise, old AD once told me, any athletic director worth his salt always carries around a short list of coaching candidates (for football and basketball), just in case something happens.”

    Q: And what do wise Chancellors carry in their pockets?

    I shudder to think what that dumbass Lee carries in his pockets.

    I feel like Pavlov’s dog, except, instead of a bell and salivation, its a glimmer of hope followed by crushing disappointment.

    Seriously though, good things can still happen, you gotta believe.

    I’ve said it before, we have the Alfred E. Neuman of AD’s at State. “What me worry?”

    ^And an idiot and a disgrace to NCSU and incompetent and stupid and unthinking and . . . !

    I notice that Foulup’s new women’s volleyball coach is now 2-27 (0-20) heading into the last two ACC games this weekend. Do you suppose he’s made a new list!

    Miami did not screw around. They dismissed Larry Coker twelve hours after his last regular season game. Whether you agree or disagree with their decision to dismiss Coker; at least they did not let it linger. I wonder if Fowler and NCSU will act likewise and make an announcement by noon on Sunday relative to Amato’s status. I hope they learned from Miami. I’m sure a reason for Miami’s quick decision is to get a jump start on several other schools who more than likely, or have been rumored, to fire coaches; i.e. Alabama, NC State, Arizona State, in addition to Michigan State who is already looking for a coach. All of this is making UNC look pretty smart at this juncture; they made a decision and have a coach in place. Let’s just hope NCSU acts swiftly!
