right you can include powell, brackman, simmons, costner, and hickson as well. Sure, they all had valid reasons for leaving. But whats the common denominator? People tend to flee NC State and they tend to return to UNC.

Part of that is we know UNC's athletic program is pretty shady and provides special benefits that are outside the rules.

Part of it I think its fair to say is our athletics program is inferior and our fanbase creates an atmosphere of hostility.

LOL, good old Mike Bell.

he should've just been a part of a package deal with Wilcox.... only Wilcox didn't qualify for us and went to Maryland.

so, we were stuck with Bell, who then transfered to some shitty Atlantic Sun school. godalmighty.

our admissions requirements suck baws. same thing that scared Calipari away.

It was published before Davis and Thomas transferred, don't know why Johnson isn't on it, but the point is more that there isn't some huge discrepancy in the number of transfers between the big 4 schools.

Other than Marshall Williams/Damien Wilkins, that is a list of guys who never should have been on scholarship at an ACC (or really any) major conference program. Johnny Thomas is an exception due to his freak knee problem, and Julius Mays was a function of us having no point guard on the roster. The Damien Wilkins situation was unique in that a talented player was bringing down the program with his meddling dad and uncle, and he transferred after wanting to return after testing the NBA waters but Herb wouldn't give him his scholarship back.

Don't think that's right.

We took Bell over Wilcox...Bell was considered a slam dunk recruit by many. (I believe Bell was top 10 at his position). Don't think Wilcox had a qualification problem...we just didn't want him as much as Bell... I don't think Wicox was as highly recruited

Actually, we had Steve Blake in our back pocked too, but I think we took Cliff Crawford over him instead.

Gary made a living off of Herb. Same goes with John Gilchrist

EDIT: Just looked it up, and it looks like both were top 100 players....with Wilcox in the top 25 and bell in the top 75. I certainly don't remember Wilcox being that high, so I'll retract my statement. I do know that Bell was no slouch and we didn't get "stuck" with him....he was very highly touted. Bell might have just been a better fit for Herb becuase he supposedly had good range for a high school forward? All I know is that from everything I've been told about that recruitment was that we didn't want Wilcox.... or at least that we didn't want him as much. Really...wtf would Herb have done with Wilcox?

you guys clearly know jackshit.

Not only was Mike Bell sick when he played as a sophomore (anticlimatic but herb refused to play him)


but he was player of the year his senior year in college basketball.



Thats okay, we WANTED him to transfer before he became a superstar, thats what we wanted.

Shut-up rally.

Bell was never able to put on weight and he had pretty bad knee problems. When he finally got healthy he was an extreme liability on defense out on the court...and when he got in all he wanted to do was jack 3's.

A good friend of mine was his AAU coach in high school and personal trainer/basketball coach during his college years. After transferring he was finally able to put on some pounds and he tore it up his final years in college somewhere down in Florida (Atlantic maybe).

I use to watch him work out with my friend and he was sick skill wise (could shoot and handle the ball extremely well for a 6'10" guy)...but he just wasn't ready for major college basketball.

Really wish we could have gotten Wilcox. I think he fluctuated in the top 30 to top 50 in the high school rankings (he MIGHT have been top 25 by one publication, but he didn't sniff the McDAA game). We came in 2nd, but he was always going to go to Maryland. His mom was banging his AAU coach who got a job on Maryland's staff while he was there. Freak athlete.



Just looked at a list of all those names. I don't think any of those were that big of a deal (left for Doherty-hit-me-at-practice type reasons or they wouldn't have made us an ACC title contender) except for maybe Josh Powell leaving early. That one really hurt. Marshall Williams was a solid player, but I don't think he was going to be All-ACC or anything. He also was extremely homesick...I feel like I remember hearing that he had a preggers girlfriend or a sick mom or something along those lines.

Looks like Marshall really let himself go after college...he's a AAU coach back in Wisconsin:

Considering how much shit we still get over our treatment of Sendek I don't understand why it is so hard for you to admit that extremely vocal asshole fans are a detriment to the program. If we all think Yow is the answer at AD why don't we all just trust her to do her job and just go out of our way to make NCSU look like a good place to play and coach at? It can't hurt.

Do you think there is any chance that 'extremely vocal asshole fans' had anything to do with us getting rid of Lee Fowler? Do you think us parting ways with Fowler was a detriment to the program?

Can you tell me who you think exactly are the 'extremely vocal asshole fans'? Are you talking about fans on message boards? Fans at the game?

Wow. I had no idea how much power I wield over our athletic program.

I am stunned to learn I can single handedly build NC State athletics into a dynasty by making hundreds of excuses for each game we suck it up in or I can act like a complete-fool-extremely-vocal-asshole fan by complaining about our continuous ACC cellar status and I can give our school the death penalty.

Chancellor Woodson is why we we got rid of Fowler. We had many glaring issues in our athletics and it was pretty obvious a change needed to be made.

Yes Woodson did his assessment and fired Fowler, but you can't say that fans voicing their displeasure wasn't a factor.

I think I've made my point that having vocal fans isn't necessarily a bad thing either. I think it's a good topic to discuss since the latest argument for why you shouldn't critique Lowe's credibility (in the credibility thread mind you) is essentially because we ran off Herb.

The issue in play here is the sane people in this forum are concerned that our vocal asshole idiot fans will start acting out as they did while Sendek was here. If fans start behaving in that way we will be destroyed by the media yet again and it will severely hamper our abilities to attract a decent coaching candidate (when the time comes). I don't have a problem with logical arguments (there are plenty) in the credibility thread but people making stupid personal attacks in this thread just reflect badly on the university in general. I don't care if you think people don't read this thread (they might they might not). The media seems to love attacking state fans (the Sendek graphic pretty clearly proves that) and I don't think we need to provide fodder of any type.

What specific behaviors and acting out are you talking about while Sendek was here (serious question, I really don't remember everything that happened back then, one thing I've heard was his daughter got picked on in school or something??)

And more importantly, are those behaviors and actions currently being carried out by our fanbase towards Sidney Lowe? If not then I'm not sure why we're even discussing? It just comes off looking like an attempt to squelch any criticism of Lowe.

"

Booing when he was introduced at home games, creation of websites, fans launching attacks through the media and message boards, and some pretty distasteful things said about him publicly.

So far our actions towards Lowe have been very good. However given the attitudes currently being expressed on message boards I expect that to change shortly and for the media to suddenly become very sympathetic towards Sidney Lowe. Hell you could argue the national media is baiting NCSU fans right now with their Lowe is the best you are going to get articles.
