"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? "


No need to retract, as you're partially right.

We did favor Bell over Wilcox, because Bell could stretch the floor --- but also because it was a huge question mark whether he could qualify under our admissions standards. (the same standards that Any Katz covered last week as scaring off Calipari).

Wilcox, Bell and Blake were all interested in coming here. Especially Blake. Taking Crawford over Blake was an idiotic choice on Hreb's part. But, Wilcox was dumb as a stump, or we would've taken him and Bell together, from what I understood about the situation.

All ancient history now, however.

This is bullshit. We were getting ripped before Lowe was even hired. Hell we were getting ripped before Sendek even left!

My big question for milkboner is why is the idea of behaving in a classy manner so distasteful to you? I mean who does it really hurt for our fans to at least attempt to take the high road while our AD does her job? Why provide ammo for a Carolina blue blinded media base?

I had season tickets for every one of Herb's seasons. Never heard him booed during intro's, even in his last year. That shit is totally made up. Not saying you're making it up (or that fans weren't pissed with him), I'm sure someone like Tim Brando said it first.

What percentage of the fans there were booing? If your answer is anything over 2 or 3%, then yes, I'm calling you a liar.

Our fans booed herb sendek and we ended up with a desperation hire. Really worked out well didn't it?

^^^I don't agree with booing any of the players or coaches, but my point is that it's not the end of the world if it happens. It's certainly not as big of a deal as you and Bullet would have others believe.

Whatever. I was there I heard it and anyone else who regularly attended games during that period heard it. The media ripped us heavily for it during our coaching search but I am sure it had no negative effects Hell you should start booing now I am sure it will just help our AD attract coaches and retain players...

The media has nothing to do with anything. Criticizing Lowe isn't controversial at all. Nor would firing him be. Not even sure why it's being brought up.

Lowe was a consensus coach on the hot seat every single place you looked this year.

Also x2asnice sort of had a breakdown here, from the looks of it.

What is the premise of your argument? Asshole fans are a good selling point for potential coaches?

^ The media isn't an issue right now but after that idiotic graphic during the UNC game I am concerned that they are looking for an excuse to become an issue. I fully believe that the lunatic fringe of the fan base is going to become extremely vocal and make us all look bad.

What part of I had season tickets every year of Herb's tenure did you not understand? My premise is that you seem to think we have asshole fans who treated Herb like shit. Not true at all. It's easy to read a fanbase as negative if the message boards are all you have to go on, especially when we've had nothing really great to be positive about during the entire message board era. And I know for a goddamn fact I've seen more NC State games than your overly positive ass has.

What the fuck kind of anti-depressants are you on? I need that shit, pronto.


And who gives a shit if Jay Bilas and Tim Brando talk shit about us? You know what would shut them up? Winning. If we were winning right now you wouldn't see one bullshit graphic about Herb fucking Sendek.

The fans are going to be pissed when we lose games like Saturday where we go to play our biggest rival and our entire team looks like they are just out on the court to get the game over with. I'm not going to bust anyone's balls for being livid at the coach, especially when his track record is so awful.

There were definitely games that last year where Sendek was booed during intros...loudly.

I know the RBC nazis also disposed of more than a few anti-sendek signs that year as well.

9/10 people in the sports community would disagree completely with this statement. That is the problem. We gave the media ammunition with the Sendek issue we damn sure don't need to give them ammo when we get rid of Lowe.

Do you not think Sendek and Lowe will be viewed differently by the media? There is NO BASIS for not shitting on Sidney's performance(not booing), I can see the non-regional media's problem with Sendek not being appreciated. (Most of our local media acknowledged his departure was the best for both parties)

If Sidney goes, there will not be anything close to the backlash of Herb leaving.

Del Negro isn't a bad pro coach, but he would be a terrible hire for a major college basketball team.

I think right now we are fine. However I could easily state fans making a spectacle out of themselves (or students they haven't exactly been behaving too well with the Free Expression Tunnel) and this story quickly turning into "those rabid state fans turning on one of their own" which would be a convenient segue into rehashing Sendek.
Also I am more concerned about the national media than the local media because coaching searches tend to be national.

There are no good alum coaches out there. Give it up.

The closest you'll find is Sean Miller or Andy Kennedy, but Miller has a great job already and Kennedy is a racist idiot and barely better than Lowe.

Guyz Duke's program went down the shitter when people were complaining about Coach K.

UNC never won anymore titles after hanging Dean Smith in effigy.

We didn't land a good football coach after booing Chuck off the field.
