OK….my turn…..since everyone has weighed in.
First….the Title, how can I put this delicately, SUCKS!
Next….it is pretty appropriate…..look at the Magic Shirt. That was the one that we got our butt whipped many times in. But, it was also the one that Gott was wearing when we whipped VILLY….so it is a mixed bag. I do NOT like the photo.
As to Gott, it is grossly unfair. He has been out on the road and trying to locate some “Talent” for us. Tonight at the Coaches Caravan (Wake County), he talked rather directly about Lacey’s defection. He was candid and stated that Trevor will be “swimming upstream” and that it is TOUGH to make the NBA. However, he did further comment about how he has called his buddies in the NBA and is trying to get Lacey some “publicity” so that he will have a better shot. Right now, Lacey needs PR. He also talked (WRAL has an interview that is almost word for word what he said to the crowd) about how the college landscape is changing…and the need for the NCAA and the NBA to make some much needed changes.
He briefly touched on Kyle. Talked about Henderson.
So, I think that the rank and file are in his corner and this headline looks like it could have come from one of the Monkey Boards where the posters have their Captain America PJ’s and under them, their Wal-Mart UNC undies.
After listening to the interviews tonight and also the “STATS” on how we have gone fro #89 to #22 (but that changes daily) in the Director’s Cup standing….I was really proud (again) of my Wolf Pack…..and the differences between US and the pretend Student-Thug-Aletes down the road is striking.
GO PACK….don’t always agree with GOTT…but this is a bit of yellow journalism….
