Ha. Who said anything about making a difference in Yow's decision? Although it is funny to think of her sitting on the fence and thinking, What to do, what to do. I know I'll just browse over to TWW and let them help me decide.

None of the mongoloid level posts made by those in denial will make a difference in Yow's decision either. Sorry if it's the dick way to go about it, but the time for holding each other's cocks over the state of our program is over. Go read Packpride if you want a rosier picture.

Genius move right there. Put a bunch of pressure of some 18 year olds (who probably already know that Sid is on the hot seat anyway )

They knew that coming into this year. Remember Harrow's letter? They are young, but not that naive.

The sentiment over there is pretty similar to what it is over here. There's just more traffic over there, so it seems like there are more supporters...but the percentages are pretty even.

i know it doesn't, and right now i'm kinda on the fence about what i even want her decision to be.

but i know my posts don't have the potential to hurt the team and the program. yours do, you mongoloid, even if you don't think the players, the recruits, potential coaches, etc read the web.

This mindset just gets on my nerves.

For starters, you're never going to stop it unless you come up with some virus that completely destroys t-dub and packpride. Even then, other sites would pop up in their places. And while these sites spew forth a lot of trash...just last week the Wilmington Star News had an editorial that said Sid should step down. Another loss or two (probably after a blowout loss to UNC), the News and Observer and other peoples will be printing the same stuff. Players would have to be completely oblivious to the outside world to not know that there is instability in the coaching situation.

And it also goes on EVERYWHERE. IC makes NC State boards look tame in comparison. Pretty sure you could find the equivalent or worse at every other school across the country (at least major schools).

You don't want to hurt the program?? Then win basketball games. If you can't do that, then step aside and give someone else a try. I'm not saying that hardcore bashing doesn't hurt the program a little bit if players or recruits see it and it affects their decisions. I'm just saying that it's the least of our problems. Our biggest problem comes from the top and trickles down. We got rid of the main problem last year (Fowler). Now we're on to the next one (Lowe). It's in his and the the team's hands now. They start to win and make the tourney, then maybe they can fix things. If not, then it's Yow's turn to fix it.

I'd much rather read bitching and complaining about the coach and team than see someone crying about how the message boards are affecting the program.

i said the potential. i'm mainly talking to the tards who are going overboard and making comments about sid's dismissal being imminent. i don't understand why they feel the need to trash our team, which is what they're doing. there are at least 11 games left in the season!!!

I can see how that could be taken as being directed towards you...but it wasn't. Sidney just needs to win games. Until that happens, internet bitching is going to continue and you can't do anything about it except get people even more rile up by arguing with them...therefore making it worse.

It only happens badly at programs that probably need to make a change. I would argue that it even helps if it gets those changes made faster instead of prolonging the inevitable and making the program even that more difficult to rebuild.

Yeah, I'm fairly pissed. I've invested 30 years of my life blindly following our basketball program. The past 20 of which have worn me down. I shouldn't care at this point, but I do. It's a curse.

I'm not sure why more people aren't fucking thrilled out of their fucking minds that we're finally going to get a new coach? Some of yall are backasswards mofos. All this moping and boohoo'ing when there is finally light at the end of this 5 year shit storm.

These are rejoicing times!

I'll rejoice when we hire a coach worth a shit (which I fully expect Yow to do, but this is State we're talking about, with our luck we'll end up promoting Levi Watkins). But it is still sad to see someone like Lowe fail, not only because I want any head coach of ours to succeed, but because of his history as a player. It's tough to eat one of your own, it's unfortunate that we have to do so, but it is certainly time and I honestly think the decision to move on has already been made by Yow.

^^...says the guy who's been anonymously bitching and moaning and trashing the team he supposedly supports on tww for a few years now (and continually paying $5 to do it).

...says the guy who'll probably be bitching and moaning and continually paying $5 in a couple years about our next coach, if and when we get one.

When you're eating dinner, do you enjoy the meal, or are 100% of your thoughts on what you're going to have for breakfast the next morning

Well, if I'm having to eat shit for dinner, and there is a good possibility (or any possibility for that matter) that I won't have to eat shit again for breakfast, then yes, I'm thinking about breakfast.

Thanks for your time in trying to dumb it down for me, but I'll have to apologize, I still don't see any connection. As far as I'm concerned those two quotes are completely unrelated.

But to answer your question, yes I'll be watching.

It's really really really simple, Bullet. I'll be watching because I graduated from the school and it's my favorite college basketball team. Oddly enough, those are the exact same reasons I want a new basketball coach.

Why watch the game though? I mean, even I know we're gonna lose, and it probably won't be close. And the season is already over, so why waste your valuable time watching a coach who is gonna be gone in 2 months anyway? Do you enjoy watching shitty basketball?

Because there is a possibility (small possibility to be sure) that we do win, and if that happens I'm going to call up all of my UNC friends and give them as much shit as they'll take, and I'll celebrate NC State basketball beating our rivals for the rest of the year. I don't get it, is this an indictment of my fanhood? lol

Sounds like you won't be watching it yourself, Tree, for all those reasons you've wrapped yourself in.
