Debbie Yow will do the right thing…

She’s a Guilford County native and she still has family here and all of those that are part of the N.C. State family/fan base, can rest assured that N.C. State University Athletic Director Debbie Yow will do the right thing, when she hires the new men’s basketball coach for the Wolfpack program…..

It is not time to hit the panic button yet, even though there seems to be a number of coaches that have not shown a full-fledged, major interest in the job….There are other coaches out there and Yow will put here nose to the plow, as the farmers like to say and she will get the job done…..

That is the bottom line, she will get the job done, because the job must be filled and now that the early candidates are not looking toward Raleigh, there is no real need to get in a hurry….In a case like this you can keep looking and doing your research and you never know, it may not hurt to go back to one of your original choices and see if maybe they have had second thoughts and now maybe they are willing to talk about the job in further detail….

The work must continue and talk about who will be the next men’s basketball coach at N.C. State will continue as well…..I always liked the job that Larry Hunter did, back in his days as an assistant coach in Raleigh, under Herb Sendek and now Hunter is the head man at Western Carolina…..You never know??? Hey Larry…..Hello Larry….

Names like Bob Knight keep popping into the course of the conversation, but I think you would be better off hiring a younger coach, that can be with your program for more than just a couple of years…..

Is the talking about talking about the new hire over? Not on your life and it won’t end when the new coach has been giving the keys to coaches office….At that point, the real talking will have just begun…..That’s the way it is in the ACC and especially when it comes to basketball…..

    I look at the title of this article and think okay this will finally be a positive article about N.C. State….I open the link and find out sadly it is not. It is disguised as a great article about Debbie Yow but now I know for sure your just a Tarhole Andy……Come on man your a “Guilford College Boy” aren’t you? You make fun of Debbie Yow yesterday with the “everyone denying N.C. State article” and now you wanna CLAIM HER. AND THEN you say we should call Bobby Valvano or even Larry Hunter…..Larry Hunter???? Seriously? Come on Andy, I know your a nice guy in person but I really question your mental health with some of the articles you post on here. Don’t be so Anti-state….you might have a lot more readers if you say some positive stuff about State. But instead you will keep choking all on UNC’s gamecock and will continue to only have Tarholes on this site…Im guessing your next article will be about Harrison Barnes: Will he stay or Will he go???

    Maybe its b/c you keep using the term tarholes! or…….maybe b/c you guys are the laughing stock of the acc!
    State sucks and will always suck, get over it!!

  • fan said,

    Mike, seriously? You think Andy would base his opinion of NC State on the nickname they have for carolina? That’s just a little off big guy. Especially considering that the “Tarhole” side dishes it out just as often. I think the name calling is good for the rivalry. and please don’t follow your ignorant friends and post something along the lines of “what rivalry”….

    Also, might i point out that State did not finish last in the acc so to call them the laughing stock might be a little overboard. I think it might something more like nc state knows they haven’t been too hot in basketball for a while and they aren’t willing to settle for it any longer. where as wake forest also knows that they suck, but have just sort of embraced it…..

    Andy, I like it. You do a great job with this site. Sorry people get their panties in a bundle over a little name calling (ie MIKE) or maybe your article isnt tailored to their liking (ie PACKMAN). Keep up the good work. Might I suggest something on the Canes? We’re in a close playoff race going into the last week of the season.

  • Now it`s overkill said,

    So let us do the math. All summer Andy would continue to have different journalist opinions (JP Gigillo/Taylor Zarzour/Gregg Doyle/lEd Hardin/Carlton Tudor and most have went on record and apologies for their journalism etiquette) /if you can call them that and I use the word losely completely chastising the unc football program and every Wal Mart State fan contiued to jump on board every thread and now the shoes are on the other feet.

    This is called karma and relize that it doesn`t take much effort to chastise that rag tag of a athletic program in west raleigh.

    How good is Herb Sendek looking now!

    Andy, thanks for being an unbias administrator. I know some of this pains yourself also.

    We have to try and keep the home and away fires burning…..

  • Mike said,

    In the interest of fairness, that was not me.
    That was some other Mike. Guess I’ll have to change my name to avoid confusion when the Pack message boards dissect my posts. Or maybe I will leave it and wait for them to chase their tails in confusion. 🙂
    I think Andy’s doing a fine job making people think beyond just what ESPN’s newsreaders tell us to think.
    ROCK ON!

  • Mike said,

    Im the same Mike that has been posting here for years…. not to mention you must need glasses…the remark i made was directed to packman.

  • scarlet letter of cheating said,

    Mike, are you the same person that calls himself a fan of a school that has years of blatant academic cheating among their athletes? Athletes taking money, having papers written for them. And you want to redicule NCSU fans? Partner, you lost the right to condesend for years, even decades. The ‘unc way’ is a joke. We knew it all along. Now the world knows it. You’ll be wearing that scarlet letter for the rest of the years you are on this earth. Live with it.

  • Mike said,

    I do need glasses, but not for this.
    The remarks I made were directed to people ragging on Andy. Not really to you.
    Carry on though!

  • Condescender said,

    Scarlet,
    It is spelled RIDICULE. It is spelled CONDESCEND. See, we still have that right.

  • Mike said,

    Mike, I would put those glasses on for this, my last post was directed to fan. you are killing the name mike! Please read more carefully.
