    Hilarious, Thorpedolover admitting to a reading comprehension problem. Don't worry, I paid the property taxes on you, just hated writing a check for $.01.

    TL;DR
    What a blowhard you are. Heck I'd almost be willing to bet the proverbial farm that if you were ever married, your wife left you ages ago because you wouldn't STFU. ROFL!

    FYI: You should probably go to college before you claim to be in their fanbase. I'm sorry you're IQ wasn't high enough to get in anywhere, but hey we all need things like mechanics and waiters.

    Hilarious. Is that water or sauce, either way you can't tell because it's so weak. Whats sad is that I was smarter in the 3rd grade than you are now...think about all that money your Moms and Pops wasted trying to edumacate you. The Dr. is very proud of all his education and schools attended, but most proud of the edumacation he administers to the ignorant on here like yourself. It's part of my giving back to the IQ challenged community.

    BTW, and I'm really sorry to break this to you, but learn to read, that receipt you have is a copy of the deed I have to your troll existence!!! Pwnd and it's even legal!!!

    And the Dr. Manipulator pulls the e-strings of his Marionette LovesaThorpedo to get him to dance, and Thorpedolover breaks out into a jig.

    I'd say about the only thing you hang on to is the hope that one day you might go to college and be able to rightfully cheer for ANY school. As is, you're just a bandwagoner. YAYYYYY Orange County Remedial College! Everybody else stinks!

    You, smitty, are one pitiful creature. While your elaborate stories are amusing, it does show how delusional you really are. Get some help, bro. And while you're at it, apply to Durham Tech. ROFL!

    I've followed NC State athletics for my whole life. I've equally followed it since I was a freshman at NC State 1992. If Yow is what is wrong with NC State athletics, I don't want to be right.

  • Dr. Feelgood Nov 30, 2012

    I'll answer you on this one since I have a spare minute or two...

    IlovesaThorpedo doesn't even understand the meaning of "bandwagon". So from Wikipedia...

    "In layman's term the bandwagon effect refers to people doing certain things because other people are doing them, regardless of their own beliefs, which they may ignore or override"

    Hmmm..I'm pretty sure the Dr. carves his own way through trolls on here, preferring to slice up fresh meat than go for the already tenderized parts. Been a Tar Heel fan since 1969, always post win or lose, take my medicine when it's handed out in here, never run from anyone or anything, just as good a loser as I am a winner. More critical than most anyone in here when the Heels don't perform.

    So, now that I've diced you up into mini-marshmellow troll bits, maybe you can explain the definition of "bandwagon" as it applies to the Dr., because at this point you are at the "monumental fail" level of trolldom.

    Wham...LovesaThorpedo just took a direct hit and is sinking by the stern...a frequently repeated act by the Thorpedolover.

    ...and the Dr. hangs another trollhide on his wall of smack.

Try again there ChickenSAC, tell us how things are going as you must be out of 11th place right now. Yow railed on the Pack faithful for not stepping up. Is Wendell scratching the check for this new coach? A lady professing to be such a great fan should have this information on her flamingo painted fingernail tips.

    the BOT met on Wednesday.... there were no smoke signals sent up/out in search of additional funding.

    You start talking about "funds" then jump to a hire in basektball, the only one shes had to make. And you were not on the Gott Train at first so the Bandwagon has a new leader now.

    Where are you guys in funding right now? Thats gonna be a measure if she can get more than $5 out of your pocket there SACYWarbucks.

    That "circus" of a coaching search was all on her. I do think she had an end game to get to Gottfried, but you can go back and look at all of the posts on it at the time and it was an absolute train wreck. It does seem they are handling the football search better.

    Here is a lesson in Business 101 for the guy who probably graduated with "honors" from FSU (now that is hilarious)...the buck stops at the top. Just like it did with Badour and Thorpe. You don't win, you don't keep things clean, it's gonna work it's way to the top, as well it should. You trying to blame others for Yow's missteps (right or wrong, she has to own it) is typical Red Rager...you are still convinced Carl Hess is in a mass conspiracy to keep the Pack from winning games. BTW, the aliens at Area 51 say even you are too pathetic to body snatch.

    The "jump" in Directors Cup standings returned State to roughly where it was before one of its "falls", so that represented more of a previous collapse by State rather than any great recovery.

    What has she done that is so stellar? Well, I'd say being responsible for NC State jumping 52 spots in the Directors Cup standings in 2 years is rather impressive. That is, after all, an ACC record. Further, under Yow, NCSU has seen the sports budget increase by 22% while paying off it's expenses AND generating enough revenue to add $500,000 to its operational reserves.

    In regards to the coaching search, I'm not really sure how you can put all of it on her. Did you honestly expect State to become nationally attractive because we have a new AD? No. And you can call it "plan z" or whatever you may like, but the fact of the matter is what she did do is get a coach who took us to the Sweet 16 in his first season. A coach that has put together back-to-back Top 10 recruiting classes (which hasn't been done in decades) and increased season ticket sales by almost 2000 tickets. So while we can't measure the long term success of this hire, we sure as heck can measure the short term success and I think it's hard to argue against it thus far.

    As always, your support for our program is appreciated. They were ejected for yelling at a referee. From the seats. Not from the sideline, not from the floor, and not threatening anybody, but yelling at a ref from the stands. I suppose if Hess is gonna call a game at Cameron Indoor, he'd need the place to be empty? No, of course not, you're just critical of State.

    the added funds from fundraising came in handy, when DY showed she wouldn't sit idly by, whilst the Pack gets BLOWN OUT by a lowly UVA team at home, on HOMECOMING weekend, no less.... they (undoubtedly) helped her with her decision to show TOB the door.

    All I've seen so far from the basketball team this season is a bunch of lazy, undisciplined play, so I'm not too impressed. Let's see how Gottfried stands with Wolfpack "Nation" if he manages to lose to Carolina this season. With all that's happened to the lunatic fringe lately, that will be the straw that breaks the camel's back and leads to a complete implosion.
