Why does everyone ask that we respect their decision? What happens if we don't?

If you don't respect their decision, you should tweet at them to show your displeasure. Tweeting at kids is always a good idea.

I think the better question is, do players really think adding the qualifier “please respect my decision” will actually lead to less people being assholes online to them about their school choice? I was gonna bombard this guys’ social media with mean comments but then I saw the “respect my decision” part of his post so I decided to back off

I don't think they think about it at all. It's part of the template.


Thanks to [coaches/programs/players/fans] for [hard work/commitment/caring about me/identifying my talents]. I have grown immensely during my time at [school] and this has been a very difficult decision. At this time I have chosen to [reopen my recruitment/transfer/enter the draft] and I look forward to the next chapter. Please respect my decision.

So we have heard a lot about our players transferring. Any news on potential people transferring in? Or are we too toxic for anyone to want to come? Maybe we can rehire Lowe as our recruiting coordinator so he can get some stars like Leslie in here.

7 footer from Indiana got an offer from us. Competing with the likes of Pepperdine for him. Another reason why you don’t give Keatts another year. He hands out scholarships to flyers trying to save his job and none of them are ACC talents

I don’t know much about the 7 footer but he started at USF. Then transferred to IU. Only played 7 mins/game but was playing behind a dude averaging 18 ppg.

We need to add a big with some offensive skill. Ebe showed some real improvement and I think he’s a solid complimentary post player. But if he’s playing 25+ mpg, that’s a lot of time on the court for a guy that is very limited offensively.

To be clear, I wasn't slandering the 7 footer I haven't seen and know nothing about--well, maybe a little given his offer list--but seeing him get an offer made me think of the other downside of keeping a lame duck coach.

2019-Pres. 	Ole Miss 	Assistant Coach

2014-15 Buffalo Assistant Coach
2010-13 NC State Director of Operations
2007-09 NC State Video Coordinator
2006 NC State Administrative Coordinator


So he was on staff for Herb's last year, all of Lowe's tenure and a couple years of Gottfired

Everyone looking at it like it's a great hire, then you see that he was here under a lot of the previous failures. Good for Levi though, guy keeps falling into the right spot here to get paid.

The Guard from Colgate is about the only one that's a pretty solid shot at the moment. Records, he was double digit ppg.

One of the LSU transfers may end up at NCSU. He's been offered and shown interest.

Other assistant should be announced tomorrow. Final four weekend is always big for hiring assistants and I think it'll be Haith bc he has previous head coach experience.

I was just kidding about Levi being the common denominator for previous failures. He was here for Gott’s first 3 years - which were good Gott years. Not sure about his other stops. I dunno if it’s a good hire or not but smarter people than me seem to think it’s a good hire.

I read that James Johnson may be a candidate for an opening on the Miami staff. So that might be something to watch.

Also a #rumor that Levi might bring a grad transfer guard from Ole Miss with him. But that’s for sure just a rumor.

LMAO what a terrible take. The dude was a video coordinator, not a coach. If we were gonna hire a former player as an assistant, he was by far the best candidate. At this point Gainey isn't leaving Tennessee for anything less than a HC spot, as he's in prime position to succeed a guy close to retirement.

never said he was.

I'm saying in the grand scheme of things, it's not a blockbuster hire. It's a guy that's been here under different failed regimes. Maybe this one will work out better for him at NC State long term.

Woody raises a good point. Does Levi’s hire mean that both K and Roy are off the table? If we only have room for 1, who do we prefer?

the guy is an alum who has been an assistant at multiple P5 schools. He's on an upward trajectory in the coaching ranks. Who would you have hired instead?

^Agreed. There is no such thing as a blockbuster hire for an assistant under a lame duck coach who appears to be guiding a sinking ship. I can't imagine any other assistant rising in the ranks wanting to jump into this type of situation. The fact that he is an alumni is probably the only thing we got him for. If he can turn Ebe into a consistent offensive presence (word is that he is good with big men development), then we need to build the guy a statue.

Tonight’s game shows what a difference a big man can make. When Bacot left at the end UNC couldn’t stop their big man. Sucks that Bates is a traitor, turncoat, Benedict Arnold, sellout.

Good bye Bates. I wish you no luck. Butler??? He isn’t a true Wolfpacker. Supposed to be when you are Wolfpack you are Wolfpack 4 Life.
