State Blows It

Nothing went right for NC State on Saturday.

The Wolfpack only scored 24 points in a historically poor scoring effort against Florida State. During the game, NC State attempted to recognize Wolfpack legend and NBA Hall of Famer David Thompson in the stands. Instead, it aired a picture of Ernie Meyers, another former NC State player.

    Yes....

    But at least they corrected it and if you were there, you saw a smiling (I remember that smile) David Thompson.  He also looked very fit and healthy.  That was a nice thing based on what had been posted on here about his issues.

    Pity he was not our good luck charm today

    The national mockery we are receiving from this is awful.
    I hope this doesn't start a death spiral

    Comment on HBBC KK.  Was watching “Wolfpack Hustle” last night...the one recorded after the VaTech fiasco.

    I finally realized that he hires assistants to compliment his personality and approach.  He is mostly optimistic.  His comments at his responsibility to the players and their family at the beginning of the show was very enlightening and positive.

    Later on, you see segments of him in the huddle and locker room and on the V arena court...finally the VaTech halftime locker room shot.  One or maybe BOTH of the assistants are “assertively critiquing” Beverly and others for a few minutes.  THEN HBBC KK does his numbers routine and pep talk.  Never hit me that he hires assistants that ther the BAD COP and he maintains his GOOD COP persona.

    Could be totally off base.....but that is what it looked like to me and DW and we reran that segment and then looked at the whole show with a different slant.

    He also, I think, asked the media to not put up the whole game or even segments.  He made the decision NOT to review the game with the team as nothing useful would come of it or maybe worse....

    I cannot argue with that approach.  Sometimes just totally forgetting the past and moving on ismthe best....

    at least I made a little money betting VPI would lose their next game, after a strange win like that.
