Reflections on a day spent wasted in front of a computer

The Amile Jefferson saga, or, hours of my life I'm never getting back.

Damontre Harris - Blocked from Transferring to NC State?


So says some dude in South Carolina. As background, Harris is a 6-9, 210 pound sophmore, originally from Fayetteville, NC, who averaged about 7 points, 5.5 boards, and over 2 blocks in 26 minutes per game for the dumpster fire that was last year's Gamecock basketball team. Reports are that he is following Anthony Gill out of Columbia, and Frank Martin has agreed to release him anywhere-except NC State. Apparently Martin thinks there was some tampering by NC State coaches, reminiscent of Randy Edsall blocking Danny O'Brien from transferring to Vandy (recall that Orlando Early was at SC before last season). Harris was #61 in the Class of 2010 in the RSCI rankings, and shot very well from the field and line last season. He'd certainly help in a big way in 2013-14, by which time Howell and presumably Calvin will be gone. Hope this gets worked out somehow.


Moving On

I cannot help but think about the future of the basketball program and get really excited (hopefully this is enough closure time for tannofsteel84).

NC State Confidential video on CBS - AWESOME

[Editor's note: The NCAA won't let this video be embedded for some reason that is probably lame and pedantic.]

Back for more torture.

Fun to pay attention to this again, isn't it?

MUST WATCH Half-drunk, redneck Clemson fan turns his video camera towards himself and "previews"...


MUST WATCH Half-drunk, redneck Clemson fan turns his video camera towards himself and "previews" the NC State game. "O'Brien, you're just another Yankee coach. So when this Southern team rolls in to...Carter-Finley Stadium. Sounds French to me, Cartier Friendly Stadium." then he prank calls the NC State Vet Clinic. I...I have no words.


Football Recruiting Picking Up?

After a very slow start, the staff has secured commitments from several good looking prospects recently.


NC State Football = Dead End Job

Here's the rant I promised, though it is not really a rant, rather just awful reality

A sobering historical perspective on our football success, or lack thereof

We have finished with a winning record in ACC play just twice in the past 15 years. Both times it was 5-3 (2002 and 1998). The last time we finished better than 5-3 in ACC play was 1994 (6-2). T...
