    LSmith replied to a thread Clemson in Football
    Just saw this game again on ESPN's top 25 games from last season and it gives me some hope for 2017 if we can bring that kind of intensity on D every game. One thing I did not notice on the original broadcast was Clyde the Orangutan from the Clint Eastwood' s movie (Any which way but Loose) hanging around Bambards neck right before he went out to attempt that field goal. Then I saw Doreen come up to encourage Bambard as he was going on the field and there was Clint in the back ground saying "right turn Clyde" and he popped Doreen in the nose and shot the bird to all the NC State fans as Bambard missed that field goal. Keys for 2017: *Play every game with the same intensity that we played against Clemson last season. *Get rid of the monkeys on our backs that has plagued our kicking game for 2 seasons!!!! *Work our asses off this summer and I hope that is going on right now because it is gonna be hot as hell in Charlotte when we meet SC the 1rst game. That will,be a make or break game!!! About time to start that countdown to kickoff thread right Derreck?

    Wow! What a poignant statement! And what a powerful indictment against Gottfried! Everything reported is that Smith dominated the NBA Summer League, and has established himself as a solid NBA player, well worth his lottery selection, and perhaps showing he was a bit of a sleeper pick. Ken

    Aaron Torres ✔ @Aaron_Torres Dennis Smith Jr has been so good in Summer League, NC State should re-hire Mark Gottfried and fire him again just to prove a point. 10:11 PM - 13 Jul 2017 39 39 Retweets 82 82 likes

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cGw0GphX-uE Smith has looked great so far. I know its summer league but this was a match up of two guards that were high picks and both have high expectations.

    Not sure this is true yet, there is mutual interest but he has not committed nor have we offered. Beverly did play for Hamilton at Hargrave so that is the connection.

    Sure seems like we are going all in on speed and run-and-gun. It has worked in the past (UNLV, Loyola Marymount). But nothing really sustainable.

    The team leaves August 2nd for a 10 day exhibition tour in Italy. This is a make-up from the one that was canceled last year. What a blessing for this staff to be able to get these extra practices and scrimmages in.

    Absolutely! Much better system, and very fair to the student-athletes. Should be the model applied to all college sports with active pro leagues. Ken

    McLain and Deatherage decide not to sign with the teams that drafted them and return to school. Just another reason why the baseball draft model works better than basketball or football. It gives the player so much more power to decide his future. https://twitter.com/PackTheBases/status/879442565816365056

    Had an opportunity to meet Coach Keatts on Sunday when taking my son to basketball camp. While the campers were all on a big court in Carmichael, Coach made a special point to go around the perimeter to introduce himself and and talk with each of the parents still hanging around. He's a very personable guy. Since my son is a commuter at the camp I've been picking him up in the evenings, which usually involves some standing around and waiting. Coach has stopped to speak every time I've seen him and he's done the same with other parents. After many years of my son attending Mark Gottfried's camp I can say that Coach Gottfried never did anything like that. His assistants, like Jeff Dunlap certainly would, but not Gottfried. He would usually stand around looking past anyone not on his staff or otherwise close to the program. He always seemed very approachable in front of the media, but not in person. That's not necessarily a criticism, but just difference in people. I don't know yet how good a coach Kevin Keatts is or will be, but he's sure one heck of a nice guy.

    LSmith replied to a thread What a dick! in Other Schools
    LOL!!! Just checked this forum for the 1rst time in a few days and saw the thread title "What a dick!" and was hoping this was not referring to any of my post LOL!!. When I saw the name Hess it all made since however. I have seen the Hess kid play this week during the CWS and did not realize he was the "dicks" son. Bottom line for me is Hess received nothing more than a slap on the wrist for the Gugs and Corch incident and the fact that the other ACC officials were allowed to honor him by wearing his initials on their shoes during the ACC tourney that year was the ultimate example of how the ACC disrespects NC State. Swofford might as well gathered Hess and those officials for a beer outing and take them to piss on the graves of Sloan and Valvano. What Hess did that game would not have been tolerated at any other arena in the ACC and especially Cameron and the Dean Dome. I am still disappointed in Yow's response other than the verbage she offered after that game. I believe that was her 2nd year as our AD and I feel could have done more during that incident.

    Karl Hess used to be employed by the ACC as a men's basketball referee. Along his career, he had many notorious moments, all of which seemed to solidify his reputation as being an egomaniac and hot head. Well, here I am watching the College World Series and the ESPN crew shows Karl Hess in the stands cheering his son, who is a relief pitcher for LSU. That's fine. But, it's what the ESPN announcers said next that removed all doubt as to what a douchebag Karl Hess truly is. Hess' son had committed to Virginia Tech, which makes sense since he is from Virginia. Well, when the ACC decided not to renew his contract, in an act of retribution Hess had his son withdraw his commitment to Virginia Tech and called some friends to inquire about opportunities for his son with an SEC school. LSU gave the younger Hess that opportunity. Karl Hess is of course the referee who ejected Tom Gugliatta and Chris Corchiani who were honored fans at an NC State basketball game years back. For this outrage Hess was booted from the ACC Tournament, causing a brief protest by a few other officials until the ACC reminded the refs who they work for and said any further such demonstrations would warrant additional penalties.

    The projected pay slot for the No. 9 overall pick is $2,681,900 in year one of the contract and $3,183,300 in the second year. The team has the option for year 3 at $3,719,700. Also, I think Dennis landed in the best possible spot. He likely will start from day one and is part of a solid organization that will right its ship. I was nervous that he would end up with the Nicks.
