I am ready to rally around Sidney.

I do NOT think he is a good coach at this point in his career.

What I am willing to bet on is his ability to recruit at a high level and put together a team that can make NC State a team with ACC and NCAA championship potential.

Buy Lowe, sell high.

This team isn't quite good enough to win tough games, yet.

Sidney took this job in a HORRIBLE situation. Our program had consistent mild success and he took over a team that was losing talent, lost an entire top rated recruiting class, and he had no connections recruiting wise.

Look at the kind of talent he has plucked... Tracy Smith is a big time baller.

When it comes down to it, he's got NBA connections, a great program, great school support, a great venue.... he has a chance to produce year in year out classes that are elite.

If we start combining a few one and dones like Hickson, Wall, or Favors with top notch 3-4 year players like Harrow, Brown, Cothron we will be a team with potential to beat anyone.

I know it's not the slow, methodical, excrutiating process that Herb got you used to, but remember Valvano didn't win a title with slow white players.

I am willing to flat out guarantee we will make the NCAA tournament next year. We have 2 stud freshman committed who don't even project as starters. When has that ever been the case?


What evidence do you need?

-Wood is looking like a potential sharpshooter

-Howell is a complete beast who has yet to hone his skills

-Vandenburg is a quality player

-Javi Gonzalez went from a horrible PG to a guy whose Jr. year stats are comparable to Raymond Felton's. I will grant you he is not a natural or reliable PG like Felton was, but a no-name hispanic PG becoming an impact player in the ACC is not a frequent occurence. Harrow will disappoint next year, but will eventually become one of the best PG's the ACC has ever seen...

-- Degand went from a washout end of the bench type player to an attack mode, break down the defense weapon.




As much as I look like a genius for starting the "Sidney Lowe credibility thread" three years ago, my genius will prove true again in this one.

Flame on, I will be right in the end.

IIRC (I don't read that other travesty of a thread) Rally has been easier on sid for the last several months than he was originally. So I'll allow it.

I think a nice rally for them when they come home would be a good way to show the team that we are behind. It may give Lowe something to point to when he constantly tells them that the fans care about them and this program, and that they owe it to them to play hard all the time. Plus it might give them confidence going into a brutal stretch of games.

you guys are too young to remember the days where the basketball team drank with the students and the football team smoked weed with your girlfriends. We got old and kids are even afraid to unlock the door to their '97 camry's.

But kids are still kids. Let them celebrate a win before one night you Obama loving negroes

someone on PP said:

Quote :
"There's no need to be bipolar about this and suddenly declare Sid coach for life because Scott Wood went off last night.

But the fact is that this is a young team that is a couple of bad games at the line and a brainfart from Tracy Smith away from being 15-2.

A capable AD would have a hard time getting a top-notch coach in here and we don't even have a capable AD.

Sid has to have a couple of more years. There are signs of progress here."


agreed

i also do not think he is a "good coach" yet, but i'm happy he's hanging in there and doing his best for us. this year and next, will be telling.

A lot of times good players make coaches look good. We're lacking in that department right now either due to youth or just having to endure the growing pains of a coaching transition. I'm excited about the current group of freshmen and the incoming class. In comparing it to building a house, the 2009 class gives us a nice foundation and the 2010 class gives us the walls and roof of the house. Hopefully the 2011 and 2012 class will give us the little things like electricity and indoor plumbing to make it a nice habitable place.

We've already got that tall, athletic center for the 2012 class, and hopefully we can add TJ Warren in the 2011 class.
