Saw a few rumors on the net (ACC blogs, TI, google searches) about this. Man... NC State again has gone to their 8th choice. My feelings about xCMG are known on here so I'll leave it at that.
I caught some of the press conference cause I like to watch train wrecks.... and it was as NC State's AD Yow took some swipes at her former employee Gary Williams (Maryland HC) saying he sabotaged the search. I'm sure Mark loved that... he was hired 'cause Gary Williams sabotaged the coaching searchand Gottfried was the best NC State could get due to this.
I have a feeling the NC State/Maryland game is going to be fun to watch next season.
