Found this statement to be interesting in the way that it was worded as the department isn’t putting up much of a denial around WTVD’s report that Mar

If any of you thought, thought we were a joke you now know your thoughts are reality. Cant even fire someone right….que alanis morrisette…isn’t it ironic.02/13/2017 at 10:20 PM #117422NelsonHall97Participant

More than apparently anyone has. Few could leave Gonzaga whenever he wanted and hasn’t.02/13/2017 at 10:38 PM #117425AdventurooParticipant
Couple of good “Goonies” or maybe some of Red Reddington’s “Persuaders” from the Black List. You would need to kidnap his family and hold them hostage. Then you implant a chip that would release a deadly toxic substance in each one should he NOT continue to be our “gainfully employed coach”. Don’t know what Red pays his people….but if we had THEM, we probably could convince Mark Few to come to Raleigh.
Short of that, I don’t think there is enough money to attract him….he seems fine with his Left Coast lifestyle….02/13/2017 at 10:41 PM #117426BJD95Keymaster
I think UCLA wanted him, and he said no. Unless he’s been on video having Christian conversation with various farm animals in Eastern WA since then…he stays.02/13/2017 at 10:42 PM #117427McCallumParticipant

To paraphrase Lt. Col. William “Bill” Kilgore from Apocalypse Now,
“I love the smell of NC State in the evening, it smells, it smells like stupidity.”

Since Few is an option let’s just gun for the a$$hole that coaches the Spurs.
I’m sure he, like everyone else, is dying to come to Raleigh and coach.

Standard procedure. Good to know nobody is ok with Gott’s crap.02/14/2017 at 9:07 AM #117461wolfpackdawgParticipant

Mark Few should have been in play two searches ago. In threads like this I floated his name and had many State fans tell me he wasn’t good enough.
He’s turned down UCLA, Oregon, Washington State and others. I wouldn’t be surprised if Berkeley didn’t reach out to him as well. No way he’s in play now, and can anyone get more obvious? It was like the Wake fans when they thought they were getting Brad Stevens.
Now I hear the same things about Arch (i.e. we should be after other “better” candidates). We’ve got to get out ahead and grab the candidate earlier as opposed to waiting too long. As it is, we may have waited a year too long (as I don’t think anyone really saw Ohio State possibly coming open last season). Arch has all the things to win really big at a high major. Back up the Brinks truck and make it happen.02/14/2017 at 9:34 AM #117470WulfpackParticipant
Anybody that thinks Mark Few is leaving Gonzaga for NC State is delusional. Not happening. Move on to the next guy.02/14/2017 at 11:09 AM #117483JeremyHParticipant
but has Mark Few seen the new centennial campus? I saw wine and dine the surfer dude.02/14/2017 at 11:44 AM #117487blackdomParticipant
Very sad indeed. Well on the bright side it will just prolong the agony before the F up the next hire.02/14/2017 at 11:57 AM #117488choppack1Participant
I am sorry…But if you didn’t think a) that Gottfried was getting fired and b) that Archie would be one the Top 2 candidates – you’re in denial.
Let’s just think of it this way…Dave Doeren builds NC State into a consistent winner – clearly outpacing TOB, MOC, and Amato….When a big job like Nebraska, Michigan,tOSU opens up – do you not think that everyone and his brother will know that DD is a candidate?
Was it planted as a kind of a mea culpa for last time for any burned bridges? Was it leaked unitnetionally? Who knows? Who cares.
Don’t overreact. When you are facing a total meltdown like we are seeing (and that’s just the stuff we can see) – you know this is coming.
My only concern is if Arch thinks this is indicative of a larger disfunction and says I don’t want to deal with that trainwreck. This, and the way others continue to hate his former coach and boss, could understandably tip the scales.02/14/2017 at 12:39 PM #117493PapaJohnParticipant
Weird that no other news source has reported the potential firing.02/14/2017 at 12:50 PM #117497gso packbackerParticipant

Exactly why it is absolutely critical how we manage the situation from here on out! Without knowing exactly what HAS happened, it’s hard to say what we should do. Regardless, whatever it appears we do (perception is reality) will be viewed as a direct reflection of who we are and how we operate (as it should). Just human nature boys!02/14/2017 at 12:53 PM #117498gso packbackerParticipant
Btw, if I am Randy Woodson, how Debbie performs between yesterday and the end of the season will dictate her future employment with NC State.02/14/2017 at 1:19 PM #117503MrPlywoodParticipant
The Demarest Tweet is about as clear as a Michael Flynn explanation.02/14/2017 at 1:24 PM #117504choppack1Participant
Totally fair gso – she can’t have another Glen close moment like she did in the press conference in the last search.02/14/2017 at 1:46 PM #117510RickKeymaster
Yow is screwing this search up and it hasn’t even started.02/14/2017 at 1:50 PM #117511HamletParticipant
The general rule of thumb for predicting State decisions, is to ask yourself, “What would a proactive, highly successful organization do?” Then simply expect the opposite. This highly scientific method has proven remarkably accurate going on 27 years now.02/14/2017 at 2:08 PM #117512MrPlywoodParticipant

The solution is simple, really…
