    The funny thing is these sorts of flights are what Pack Pride claimed was going to bring down UNC basketball.

    All the credit goes to your own Todd Turner for that decision. Vanderbilt's former athletic dept also says thanks. Such a smart guy he was.

    I'm afraid the events of the past few weeks were too much for TBK. Has anyone checked on him?

    "Campbell's notoriety may make the flights with NCSU coaches seem odd, but there is nothing illegal about them, and there has been no hint of impropriety."

    Copied from the N&O article. That pretty much says it all.

    as opposed to the juggernaut of a program we're used to seeing over in the hole???

    a football coach that has 1 road win against atlantic division opponents in 6 years. A coach that is leading his deepest most talented team ever to 7-5 at best, but dont count out 6-6, but hopefully 7-5 so he can stick around for a few more years of mediocre football

    Gottfried has had one losing season to UNC, and Fedora has had one winning season against NCSU. It's a bit early for any bragging just yet - all that can really be said is that Sidney Lowe was no match for Roy Williams, and Butch Davis was no match for Tom O'Brien. From the looks of things, I doubt Roy will have an easy time against Gottfried, and I also doubt that O'Brien (or whomever the coach may be next year) will have an easy time against Fedora.

    Apparently it just chaps your azz that the folks over at NCSU do the right things the right way. Either that or the fact that you can't make the same statement about UNC, or possibly both. Either way its hillarious.

    your anger is misplaced...it should be directed to the N and O that rag of a newspager that State fans loved during the investigation

    This is no different than what Dr. Jordan's family does for UNC on a regular basis, so it must be legal and within NCAA compliance rules. Didn't UNC use a booster's aircraft to fly Roy Williams to NC to announce his acceptance of the basketball HC position? Yes, I think they did. Such trade in kind deals are acceptable by the NCAA as long as it does not include transporting recruits.

    Next story please.

    from what i read, the family has been donating flights to the athletic before this yahoo got involved. as long as the transactions are transparent and within the rules i have no problem with it since it saves the wolfpack club money and it makes travel easier for the coaches. all major schools have boosters that donate flights, it just so happens that state has a knucklehead for a flight donor.

    let the family continue to donate the flights but doosh mcqueen should stay away.

    must be a slow day at the n&o to write an article about this.
