Vawolf82: That section was referencing each coach’s last 5 seasons. For Gott that would be years 2-6 hence 3 NCAAS and only 1 S16. I was trying to highlight how much better Sendek did during that timeframe yet still was under major fire from the fanbase. So of course Gott deserves to be on the hot seat as well since his most recent 5 years are worse than Sendek’s.
I will try to make that more clear later
DSJ isn’t just any player. He is a unique talent. It wouldn’t bother me if he didn’t want to play or if someone thought it was in his best interest. He has given everything he has this season. His future as a basketball player is much more important than what we get to watch as State fans. We were lucky to see him play here at all. With the season all but over, there will be a point where it just isn’t worth playing him anymore.02/08/2009 at 6:21 PM in reply to: ACC officials embarrass league, spark (Jamie) ‘Luckie’ comeback #35276
BJD95: Totally agree on what should already be happening behind the scenes. Fowler should have already been told that he either needs to find a new job or retire at the end of the Spring semester. The search for the next AD should already be happening with a strong emphasis on an AD somewhere with connections that can help us with the next basketball coaching search(i.e. the Xavier AD who hired Thad Matta and S. Miller and even was an assistant AD at the Naval Academy for a connection to TOB). The new AD should do everything possible after he is hired to help Sidney succeed, but at the same time the plan would be in place as far what happens should the plug need to be pulled after next season.
However, we all know that isn’t how NC State operates.
As far as the game, the refs were horrible. However, I thought the team played well overall(obviously not a good 2nd half). Mental mistakes not catching the basketball led to numerous turnovers. If we catch the damn ball a few more times, then we win the game.
As far as coaching, Sidney did well enough that we should have won the game. It came down to a few players needing to make plays and those players didn’t make them. Horner is one of the best free thrown shooters on the team. He choked.
We need better players. There is no easy solution to this mess that Lee Fowler created.
