The NCAA is a joke. Amateurism in d1 basketball and football is a joke. The fact that some NC State coaches under pressure to win broke some rules in an effort to compete with a rival who doesn't even have to try and educate its students does not bother me. I care less and less about NCAA sports. I will always be an NC State fan but I'm out as a follower of college athletics. Give me pro sports and keep your hypocrisy.

Makes a ton of sense to hire the firm that represented UNC. Why would you get someone else who doesn't have recent, relevant experience in this same field?

^^^amen. I already dont follow college basketball. Thats the biggest sham there is. I pity anyone that spends money to go to games, much less buys season tickets. Ill watch the occasional football game because i like football, but big time college athletics sucks now. Its obvious there are protected schools and then schools theyll go hard at to act like theyre doing something. Its all bullshit.

I love that you can read 5-6 different sources on the NOA and you'll get a bunch of differing opinions on the severity of everything.

Some believe that NC State got off easy and that Gott/Early are going to get hammered.
Some believe that NC State is going to get hammered and made "an example of" because of the two level 1 infractions.
Some are arguing that NC State being forthright with all info and considering self-sanctions could be the easiest out.
Some are arguing that all evidence is circumstantial and that they should fight this in court and take no punishments.

Hopefully the NCAA starts handing out more of these NOAs(as expected) soon to kinda take the spotlight off of us.

I just hope that whatever happens, happens quickly. If the potential NCAA stuff wasn't already hurting our recruiting, it certainly will be moving forward until we have a clear timetable on the punishments. No kid is gonna want to come here if they're not playing for at least a shot at the postseason. Other schools will definitely remind recruits of that fact, just like we probably did to try to hurt UNC, but the only difference is UNC went from getting 5* guys to thirsty high 3* and 4* kids that were willing to take the risk to suit up at Carolina. If we were already pulling in 3/4* guys, who knows what kind of talent will be filling out our roster until the dust settles.

i used to spend way too much of my budget going out to eat -- i love it. its one of my favorite hobbies.

i do not give a shit about getting nice food when im at a sporting event. two great things that don't mix well together IMO.

Hearing Bates may have hurt his shoulder again in a pick up game.

the catering for meetings at PNC or for boxes could stand to be improved. on the concourse though if i'm eating anything i just want it to be fast and easy enough to eat, but i'm sure if they had some nicer options enough people would eat it

if there was a restaurant/beer garden option where i had a ticket to the arena but not a seat i would definitely do that

Re: Bates injury

This is definitely unverified, but it sounds like the rumor is it’s his other shoulder (not the one he had surgery on) and that it appears pretty minor.

The initial tweet I saw was made by a UNC-CH fan (judging by the tweet history), so I'd take the severity of the injury that he was claiming with a grain of salt.

This is another terrible schedule. You play Auburn, Wisconsin, Memphis, UNCG, FIU. The rest are 200+ ranked teams.

Based on the below tweet by Giglio, I'd like to temper my above post a tad
Quote :
"Two more things:

1. The highlights are Memphis (at Brooklyn), Wisky at PNC and at Auburn.

2. There's only one team (No. 349 Alcorn) that finished 300+ in KenPom last season.

That's down from six last season"

^that does seem better. but based on the quadrant system, that might not really tell us a whole lot. but based on sheer non-con SOS, this should be an improvement in ranking.

Quote :
"Quadrant 1: Home 1-30; Neutral 1-50; Away 1-75.
Quadrant 2: Home 31-75; Neutral 51-100; Away 76-135.
Quadrant 3: Home 76-160; Neutral 101-200; Away 136-240.
Quadrant 4: Home 161-plus; Neutral 201-plus; Away 241-plus."

SOS won't be what keeps us out of the tourney this year, much more likely to be our actual record.

I don't think a "parking dispute" is unpaid tickets. Sounds more like a verbal/physical altercation.

Updates from the Thursday press conference:

On Funderburk. "I have a certain expectation what I think a NC State player should be. And right now he hasn't met that." No timetable for return still.

On Danny Dixon: he "will kind of remind you guys a lot of Wyatt Walker, except we won't have the man bun." Hopefully without Walker's instincts, too

Also said that he didn't schedue any sub-300 teams, though they'll play 1 because of a tournament they're in

Says Markell needs to improve consistency and "figure out [how to] ... play two halves"

On Beverley, says "I would love to see Braxton Beverly talk a lot" and become more of a team leader

Wyatt Walker had pretty good instincts IMO. Not sure why you are hating? We will be lucky if Dixon is even close to him because I think he looks like a waste of a scholarship.

I hope that is a joke. I despised Vandy more than anyone on here. Was Walker a great player no, but his instincts were fine.

Walker was severely limited in what he could do. He at least played within his own abilities...didn’t jack up shots or try to do too much. But that’s not necessarily a sign that he was good. He’s probably the type of guy you want playing 10 mpg and not 18 mpg. Or the type of guy that should remain at a school like Samford.

Yeah he had no business seeing the floor at all in the ACC.

I don't really have any hope of Dixon being any better than Walker, but he can't really be worse. Although just from looks alone he seems slightly more athletic which is definitely a positive.
