Looks like Coach O’Brien has fallen victim to the NC State ‘half-assed-renovation-plan’ at Carter-Finley. Whatever happened to all of the new bathrooms that were supposed to built? Whatever happened to the new entrance gates that were supposed to be built? Hell, you’d think that we would at least have enough gates to get our poor students into the game on time. Whatever happened to the new concession stands and general improvements on the concourses?
“Someone asked what I would do if I had a wish list of things to do,” O’Brien said today. “That would be the first thing. The field hasn’t been re-done in 30 years. All they’ve done is pile more dirt on it. We need a drainage system and it needs to be leveled. We’re out here on this flat [practice] field all the time. You go in [Carter-Finley] and you’ve got the camel-back [field] we play on. We need to look into doing some things but I guess that’s between Mr. [Lee] Fowler and I when the season’s over.”
