    Tis a good week…

    Could an NCAA (re)visit to UNC be in the cards before the week is out?

    YES! I was starting to get a little nervous there. Nice to have this out of the way. Great news for Rodney. Great news for Wolfpack Nation.

    Outstanding!! Great news for the young man, and for NC State. Now he can focus on his classes and his game, without worrying about the NCAA hypocrisy! GO PACK!!

    Spectacular news for a young man who deserves nothing less. I have talked to several people who have spent time with Rodney and every one of them admire him and his mother greatly. Welcome (back) to the Pack, RP. Make the best of your opportunity young man. Make the best of a chance that most every young person in the country would love to have but was not given the athletic blessings to acquire. Work hard, study hard, show the NCAA that you’re worthy of this.

    Great news! When does basketball season start? Tomorrow? Please?

    Really appreciate the way you’ve handled the whole situation, Rodney !

    God is good…

    We now have a legitimate 9 man rotation. Gott can turn up the heat and run like he wants to. Gott now has a PG and SG that can come in off the bench with a TJ warren and really push the pace. I can’t wait till the blues see this team for the first time. I truly believe they are in for a shock.

    Rodney has handled this situation very professionally and, by that, I am very impressed with him. His role as an ambassador of Wolfpack Nation is off to a great start. I’m sure that’s a load off his mind, and now he can focus on his studies and, oh yeah, play some ball without looking over his shoulder. Gott and the staff can get those original plans out of the trash can now. Should be a fun season.

    What a great possible starting lineup!


    I bet a lot of coaches would take that lineup.

    Awesome news. Was expecting spring semester to be likely best case and I had prepared myself for nada. I think I’ll go buy a powerball ticket.

    That is awsome news! Congrats to this young man for the way he has handled this.
