    The Media does this. It's their job. Some coaches quell this notion, and make them go to work. If they were (K'Tucky) last year, you can run with it.

    A Sweet 16 can't afford to do this. Quell the notion. State's coaches got caught up just like the players. "NC State's starting 5 are the best in the Country." per one writer. B Sugar. Jay Williams....another sugar comment. State has some things to work out.

    Duke is the only team that has delivered thus far in the ACC. They have a blue collar work ethic right now. I'm a long time ACC fan, and I do keep up with my readings. For any team/school to keep on talking about officiating is a dismal excuse. Gott was lucky to get this job because of his friendship with Yow. Lutz is the smarter one on this entire staff. He's recruited most all of the top notch players. Heck. It's all about reading and watching a little.

    Hans, once again you are spot on! Gott and his players are too worried about the officiating once again. That seems to be the mentality of the State program! We are all learning quicky that Gott (for now) can recruit but is lacking in actually coaching his players! Just a matter of time before Debbie starts looking for a replacement!

    ^^^^agreed

    Hansy is far more expendable than your average lab rat.

    Only her mother would miss her, whereas the lab rat likely has a host of friends!

    i agree...to him, state fans are the epitome of no class but everyone else is blameless and perfect. i think he would make a good psychology experiment subject.

    Ok State #15 AP, #11 RPI. Michigan #3 AP, #2 RPI. Not sure about the blown out part from teams not ranked.

    ^^^^yup.

    Sadly, it (hansy the pansy) has no friends... It's rather obvious.

    Poor thing.

    I would dare say that the "chest-thumpers" are closer to being rational "fans" than poor Hansy is. At least the chest thumpers want the Pack to do well. Hans hates State students so much he calls them "slobbering drunks," (though is conspicuously quiet when UNC's punter kicked a guy's teeth in at 3am on Franklin St, or a frat member falls to his death after getting drunk and climbing on heavy machinery at a cement factory in Carrboro) and wants so badly for State to lose that he takes each defeat as an opportunity to jump on here and say "I told you so." Reference this thread and countless others for proof. The guy is so miserable you want to feel sorry for him, but such and incessant whiner you just want it to stop.

    I dont read all the posts but I havent seen where any Wolfpack fan crowned them Nat Champs in Sept. The ones that did post about this team being a potential NCAA Tournament team were labeled "chest-thumpers" Ive been around and gotten to know alot of Pack fans, and I agree there are some on the lunatic fringe, but Ive yet to meet a fan (of any team) that so consistently speaks nothing but negativity about the team they claim to back as you do. Rational? Not really

    therein lies the rub... she can't stand ANY POSITIVE PRESS the Pack may get.

    nevermind that it was the NATIONAL TALKING HEADS (NOT NCSU fans) hyping the Pack as a final 4 contender.... she can't get her lil head around that REALITY.

    poor lil thing.

    you have to makes news stories i guess in Aug and Sept..... pre-season picks were not invented yesterday.....just a little fyi

  • Hans Nov 29, 2012

    So, NOW we need to wait 'til March when all the thumpers were ready to crown 'em in September? When all us rational fans said "Wait until March"?

  • Last Word Nov 29, 2012

    I agree with Hansy on one point (even if it goes against my better judgement). Duke is playing scary good at times, and seems to be getting more consistent and meshing as a team. The Pack an UNC are playing exactly the same way each game. No true leader, nobody giving 100% effort and guys playing like theyre in a pick-up game. I did like what I saw against Michigan because it showed improvement over the lackluster games they'd played previously. UNC/Indy, not so much. Preseason polls are fun, if you want to get hyped, but not very accurate in alot of ways. K-rat has the Dookies playing Duke basketball and if the ACC or NCAA tourney was this weekend, Id definately be looking forward to Duke/Indiana in Atlanta.

    Considering who started this thread, I would suggest reposting the same question in March. Thats when your going to need the explanations. Go Pack!!

    you'll have to forgive, hansy...

    ya see, when you NEVER leave your parents basement because you have no friends... it's rather easy to fall behind the times.

    your pity for it (hansy) is welcomed and quite frankly.... NEEDED!

    Man, I am behind. Had no idea the season ended. Pardon me while it get caught up on the final standings.
    Just ask your boy jacobsummers eve. He starts 1,000's of threads on State so he clearly knows a lot.

    BTW... It's 2012, nobody says "mincemeat" anymore.

    luckily, conference play is still a LONG WAY off.

    they looked exponentially better tues nite, than they did against OKstate or Asheville... apprently the gassers he had them running this past weekend got the message across.

    still a LOT of work to do, but it's rather refreshing to know that they've got the most talented team in the league for the first time in 20+ years.

    talent excuses a LOT of other shortcomings.

    True, but State hasn't done that for 40 full minutes yet. They will still be a very formidable opponent come March, but Gottfried better get those chemistry problems solves ASAP.

    NC State's starting 5 > anyone in the ACC (top 5 in the nation, easily)

    when playing "together".

    J. Williams said as much just last night.

  • Unc r Hypocrits Nov 29, 2012

    I agree, Hans. But, it was the sports writers from around the ACC, not N.C. State, who voted the Pack pre-season favorites.

    Why does everyone seem to think only State had anything to do with the pre-season hype?

    thank the media for hyping them up before they even taped up their ankles for preseason practice. that's why polls that come out weeks before the season starts are rubbishness.

    but of course, you're just looking for any reason to belittle your beloved "mighty wolfpack." why don't you start a thread about the golf team being overrated, i don't think you've trashed them yet.

  • Hans Nov 29, 2012

    the mighty Wolfpack is the best team in the ACC again? While they're getting blown out by unranked teams and barely squeaking by UNC-Asheville, Duke is making mincemeat out of the top 5.
