    NC State: Gottfried (Out, once he finishes the season......)
    FTFY to recognize the absurdity of that decision.

    I'm guessing that NC State already knows who they want, and is quite confident that they are going to get them. I can't see the logic in pulling a stunt like this unless you already know what you're going to do next and are rather certain that it will work.

    Of course I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt, which may be giving them too much credit. Maybe they're just completely nuts.

    There's a lot of that going around.
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    One article I read mentioned Kelvin Sampson could be a good candidate. Let that sink in.

    Oh please God!! Let it be Kelvin Sampson!!

    Or Frank Haith!! I would start driving to Raleigh immediately just so I could get there and watch the city burn to the ground!

    Tulsa hasn't regressed enough for Frank Haith to move on yet.

    I mean even if you know who you want to replace the guy, is it really fair to announce it during the season? Is that trying to spark some motivation for the players knowing their coach is leaving, so like?? Though how hilarious would it be that they announce his firing, NC State go on a magical run in the ACC Tournament, and end up getting entry to the NCAA Tournament, and making the Sweet 16 or something. Oh the back lash.

    Oh, they know who they want alright (Archie), they're just not going to get him I don't think.

    I mean, these are the same people that hired Gottfried in the first place haha.

    In all seriousness it could be an epic year on the carousel. There are a bunch of good jobs that will likely open (NC State, Illinois, LSU, Arkansas, Mizzou) and a couple elites that could as well (Indiana, OSU).

    I gotta say i cringed a little bit listening to the most recent skinner podcast when Rick brought up his thoughts on Mack being heavily involved this offseason.
