who the hell wants to live in arizona?? It is way more possible than you think, He was an assisstant here in the late '90s .


His team is in the Sweet 16. Arizona can always have a decent program. Why would anyone in their right mind want to coach at NCSU? Because it's in the ACC? The program is a joke. The ACC is and will always be Duke and UNC. Sure others rise up for a year or two, but always fall back.

I was in Raleigh this weekend, and the name I kept hearing was Barnes. Haven't heard anything on Miller till now.

As for the money, I've heard from a couple boosters that if NC State gets one of their top 3 guys, they will probably be made the highest paid coach in NCAA. Sounds like the alumnus are tired of getting our asses handed to us by Duke and UNC and are finally putting their money where their mouth is.

what if vinny del was fired by the clippers? chances are slim, but i wonder if he would have any interest in the college ranks...


Already went down the road of NBA coach and it didn't work out too well...Yow already stated she is looking for an experienced college coach

deb yow wont hire pearl, im starting to like shaka smart because he described his basketball team as "havok". We can beat any team in the nation talent athletically, we just need a plan. i dont want to see guys standing around while the pg slowly dribbles the ball.



I'll tell you right now Shaka Smart would not be able to handle this job. Yow would have to do some serious convincing to sell him to the "money." From what I've heard we will pony up more money rather than go mid-major but that is just what I've heard...

You are clearly an ignorant fan. I would encourage you to read some Al Featherston as well as, surprisingly, Gregg Doyel. Featherston recounts our history before the "draconian" (his words not mine) sanctions that we enacted on ourself. If you know anything about the ACC pre-1990 then you will know that NC State was very much on par with both Duke and Carolina. Doyel has said on multiple occasions that we are a team set up for national prominence due to facilities, money, tradition, and fanbase. All we need is the right coach. Don't be stupid...Carolina and Duke are clearly the best but a huge school with huge money like NC State could easily get back in the ring if we had the right coach. Its the same reason that UNC has seen a rise in football (except for the cheating part). Money Money Money and a refusal to accept mediocrity.

This is what I've heard as well. From the rumblings I have heard that not only will we not be hiring a mid major coach...Our boosters are willing to actually pony up extra money on top of what Yow has already promised if its not enough to lure a promising high major coach. Not sure if it'll take that but I think its definitely on the table.

I stopped right there. You sound as bad as a Cowboys fan who brags about their old ass rings. PRE-1990? Really? NCSU can pay some supercoach more money than Bill Gates if they want, but the trick is to out recruit UNC and Duke and that just won't happen...anymore.

NCSU last won the ACC regular season in 1989.

NCSU last won the ACC Tournament in 1987. Yes, they made the final tournament game in 97, 02, 03, and 07.

You need to ask yourself what is behind their lack of success. The answer is that the media has overhyped Duke, UNC, and other major programs since TV ratings have soared for such big time games, and .com journalism has replaced print media. In other words, the media has made schools like NCSU seem like a joke so much, that they unfairly become a joke. If you were a top 10 recruit, why would you pick NCSU over Duke or Carolina or any other top program? The best NCSU can hope for is to hire a solid coach and basically be what they have become: a "mid-major" (talent wise) with a top tier name attached to their school. If Butler can make the dance, so can you. But for now...you are indeed a joke, along side Virginia, Clemson, BC, and Miami. It's not your fault. But don't give me stats from the 80s and 90s. It's 2011, guy.

I would hope so.

I'm ok competing for Top 50-100 talent with a good coach we can/will compete. Roy and Coach K won't be there in 10 years. The pendulum will swing back. *cough* Matt Doherty *cough*

I encourage you to read the Al Featherston article I linked. 1990 might seem like a long time ago but remember that we were EQUAL to Duke and only slightly under UNC at that time as far as winning is concerned...and then we put sanctions on ourselves.

I'm not even going to argue with you anymore because its pointless. There are 5 schools on "elite" level according to you and they are Duke, Kansas, Carolina, UCLA, Kentucky. Those are the only schools in the country that "recruit themselves." You could put a clown in charge of those schools and recruits would come. But for every other school (mid-majors according to you) you have to have a good coach...Which NCSU hasn't had in the last 20 years. If syndicated writers like Greg Doyel, Al Featherston, and Dave Glenn are saying that NC State is a "sleeping giant" and could make the Final Four with the right coach then I'm going to tend to buy into what they say rather than a Carolina fan that just wants to belittle a rival.

State with Miller or Pearl would be no joke. I feel like Miller is the better coach, but the talent Pearl could get would easily rival any program. Maybe State doesn't want Pearl now, but what if the top guys decline the offer?

Never send a women to do a man's job. I still find it comedic that State fans think they can lure Sean Miller from Arizona. Both he, and the AD have repeatedly stated he is happy at Arizona, and they are working to sign an extension this summer. He is going to be at the top of the Pac year after year, and get top 10 classes year after year, so why would he flee Arizona to go to the 3rd best program in NC? And don't give me that bullshit "Amy Miller isn't happy in Arizona" because from everything i've read from credible AZ insiders say that is a false statement.

I hope you guys enjoy Shaka Smart as your future head coach. Hell, even Pat Summit has a better chance at becoming the NC state coach than Miller does.
