Rye,how do you know what Oregon State put into another title?03/12/2018 at 10:03 AM in reply to: Grease Up, Hook Up, Get Ready to go to the Field – Spring Garden Thread – 2018 #132779
The weather is never too hot or cold inside the Harris Teeter near Wrightville.
I predict DD and other great minds will run 22 trick plays resulting in one turnover and 40 yds lost. Don’t know how many field goals but I bet we kick one on 4th and 3 or less against Heels.
How many ,if any, trick plays have worked.Most work best for the defense.

Who do you think benefited the most from coaching change -NCSU or Northern Illinois ?
And who said our defense would be the strong aspect of this team. Also,out coached as usual.
This may have been mentioned before but if not, the state of S.C. may have men’s baseball,football and men’s and women’s National Champs in the span of the last 9 months.02/15/2017 at 11:06 PM in reply to: Your “Show of Hands…Who’s Still Here?” U*NC Game Thread #117949
The one who brought us Gott will get us someone just before she retires.02/04/2017 at 5:41 PM in reply to: Your “And Then, Depression Set In” Miami Open Thread #116488
With the talent on this team Mike K would have State in one of the top 3 spots.02/04/2017 at 5:38 PM in reply to: Your “And Then, Depression Set In” Miami Open Thread #116487
The reason state loses in many ways is that Gott does not make adjustments to counter whatever the opposition is doing. That is what good coaches do.
Agree with RIck. I also probably watched less than 30mins. this year. Just more of the same.
If someone has already mentioned this fact before then I apologize for being repetitive . State now has a coaching staff consisting of 2 previous head coaches and now a new assistant coach all who were fired from their previous positions. No up and comers at State.
In reply to those who started bashing Smart based upon my post regarding BIlas you missed the point totally. He was talking recruiting coaches. I used SMart as an example. Smart may have only one run to the final four but he had several NCAA appearances at VCU. In his first year at Texas he beat 6 teams ranked 17 or better,4 in top 10 and 2 ranked 3. Those last two happen to be Okla. and chapel cheats. Not a bad 1st year.
Alpha WOlf, no mention of state.My point is that after 25 yrs in the bb wilderness we are not going to be able to just hire a successful mid major but will need to do a real search like the mid-majors carry out. Most state fans do not know who Case was but I believe he was a high school coach when hired. As I said before the,last 2 days indicates that there are mid-major AD’s that can find coaches who will be successful.
Jay Bilas on mike & mike today and shared some opinions on various topics but only caught him discussing the status of college bb coaching and his example was VCU and Smart.He believes that successful mid-major coaches have no reason to move to an unsuccessful schools of a major conference ie.-NCSU. State has a history of hiring mid majors with mixed results. We need an AD who can find a Smart before he becomes a successful VCU coach as the VCU AD did. The mid major AD’s seem to be able to find good coaches and this tourney has many examples.03/12/2016 at 11:30 PM in reply to: Should Mens BBall Go Back to Reynolds? One former player thinks so. #101309
You people who want to go back to Reynolds need a time machine and replay the 70’s and 80’s.The PNC is not the cause of a 25 years of bad NCSU bb but bad Atheletic directors which led to bad coaching staffs and their poor recruiting. And remember the reason we are in the PNC is because the NCSU athletic dept and the alumni did not have the financial means to build an arena on their own. Most of the Div 1 programs play in facilities less desirable than the PNC. What we need is coaching staffs that can recruit,game coach and improve the recruits skills not another facility .
Cat should go. Playing another year for this awful program is not going to help him and there is the chance he could be injured.
I’ll make it double digit
Manning retires and Rivers to Denver.
Since this is now a bitching thread I would like to hear how the experts at this site would evaluate the hiring of Yow. At the time I believe there was much support for this hire and many expressed that we made out better than the Terps. Hmmmm Terps get new AD,join the BIG,both Men and women BB teams in top 10,and FB recruiting in THE BIG better than our recruiting in the ACC.
Ten teams,one ranked and loses. ACC Bb sucks.
Perfect mentorship. NCSU with so much talent and depth is in the perfect position to use 2 scholarships for each position.
Agree with 13 about the 6 wins.When teams played 10 games, a 6 win season was only a so-so record.Now 6 wins gets you a 13th meaningless game.And as far as the improved defense remember it was against Syracuse with only wins against Villanova,C. Michigan and Wake.Hope it does not happen but would not be surprised if GT has a 500+ yds game.
winless again in conf play
