    There are a few things all of us dedicated but not completelyly delusional NCSU fans should agree on: Scott Wood cannot play defense nor can he get through screens; lapses on defense continue to cause problems; offensive rebounding is way sub par for this time of the year; CJ can be the best ball player in America when he decides to be so, which, unfortunately for NCSU,is not all that often; missing dunks and layups at this level of ball is simply not acceptable; missing free throws is also not acceptable....go back and add the missed free throws in the UM and WFU games and guess what? Two more wins...

    I concur JGunn. CJL thinks because he grew up poor that someone owes him something. His sulking. His facial expressions stood out for me.... A winner never does this. Never. He and a few others should have been up cheering his team-mates. Coach K, Roy, Calapari, Dean Smith, Knight, and all of the solid gold coaches demand this.

    I never liked CJ - he has had too much 'tude. That said, State has enough talent and can win with or without CJ. Gott can bench his rear and still win games.

    That's a good one. Leslie acted like a middle-schooler last night. No way a leader can do this on the tube, and even the announcer's focused on him doing this. Leadership and defense wins games on all levels.

    I stated last season that Leslie was the most improved player in the ACC. He does need to work a little on his attitude and leadership skills for all players, especially the youngsters. He didn't do this last night.

    I can see why C.J. is pizzed. Purvis got a new car and Calvin still driving the old one.

    not our rival, not our rival... why must you go on and on with this nonsense? state is of no consequence to the mighty tarheels. why bother? we all know why, because state is going to wax that AZZ on a regular basis starting this year. enjoy the past, talk lots of smack, because your time is over there's a new era coming.

    Fair enough Tommy. Let me see if I can reword this...

    Will Mike Glennon's ball hogging cause a mutiny this year? Let someone else throw the ball for crying out loud. There are plenty of linemen that I'm sure have a decent arm on them.

    Which Tarheel will show up? The one that goes to a fake class or the one whose mom sleeps with the boss? Hmmm.

    Which Cj Leslie will show up? The reckless attitude Cj or the controlled team player? Mmmm

  • believe Oct 16, 2012

    He's just hoping something will break this team.

    Last year the starting 5 shared the ball effectively and at one point had all 5 starters averaging within 3 points of each other. (if memory serves correctly)

    The only time I saw any bad emotion from Leslie was when he was in foul trouble.

    I will make this prediction though. If Howell can stay out of foul trouble this year (and he did pretty well in Spain in that regards), Howell may be the monster of the team. Even with an adequate Painter, when Howell went out, you could see the difference on the court.

  • SpartanDude Oct 16, 2012

    ^^Jacob, I'm curious about how you came to the conclusion that CJ Leslie is a ball hog. I did not see such behavior by Leslie in last year's ACC games.

  • believe Oct 16, 2012
    Veteran

    I haven't heard him announce this would be his last year. But in our offensive scheme, I do not think he'll worry about touches.

  • kato_karma.v3 Oct 16, 2012
    Sports Legend

    True that JS. If Calvin does not get the touches he feels he deserves, he may be more likely to have a quick trigger...or cop an attitude (more so this season than the last two, given he plans for this to be his last at Western Blvd U).

  • believe Oct 16, 2012

    I'm sure UNC will mind him and the rest of the Pack hogging the ball. It won't be any fun for UNC to keep throwing the ball in only to have the ball stolen for another layup.

  • JacobSumm16rs Oct 16, 2012

    One thing's for sure, Scott Wood won't mind, he's afraid of the ball.
