Michael Irvin is Clueless

I was watching the NFL Draft coverage and ESPN’s “analyst”(and I use that term loosely) Michael Irvin is griping and complaining about the Houston Texans passing on USC’s Reggie Bush in favor of NC State defensive end Mario Williams for the #1 pick in the NFL draft. Now, on one side, not taking Bush may [...]

More Thoughts on the Duke Lacrosse Case

In considering the media role in the Duke Lacrosse Case I asserted that one of the deeply troubling trends found in the conclusions being made on the national coverage level exhibited an incredible level of hubris and illustrated little knowledge of Duke, Durham, and North Carolina in general. There was never a starker example of [...]

The Duke Lacrosse Case, Part 2

The Defense

The defense lawyers in this case have been known for their penchant to put their case and counter evidence on display for the world to see. The most obvious reason why is they are influencing a potential jury and hoping the public opinion will tilt so far in favor of their clients it [...]

The Duke Lacrosse Case, Part I

As a blogger from the Raleigh area one might construe that I have fallen short of my responsibilities for not having raised this issue already. Part of my hesitation was that I not be seen for jumping up and down on Duke just for the sake of doing it. The other side of it was [...]

Salary vs. Value

It has been over a full day since NC State received it’s second rejection in their search for a new head coach. The Wolfpack administration seems to have hunkered down somewhere secluded putting out feelers and attempting to construct some sort of plan to move forward on their so-called “B” list of candidates. Since we [...]

National Championship: Not Even Close

On Sunday afternoon I checked my email and I was alerted to seven new comments on the blog here. I logged in and found that I had apparently ticked off UCLA fans with my Final Four post(which is interesting since I spent more time blasting LSU and Big Baby than I did anyone else.) Anyway, [...]

The Final Four: YAAAWWWNNN!!!!

Wow, that sucked. After a great set of games with most going down to the wire we got treated to a pair of games which were over by the first TV timeout of the 2nd half. Also what you had here was a classic case of clearly inferior teams being exposed for the frauds they [...]

Considering Herb Sendek Gone

Multiple media sources are confirming that NC State head coach Herb Sendek has decided that a $1 million annual salary and not having to put up with a slew of whiny and ungrateful Wolfpacks fans is enough incentive to go to Arizona St. and coach there. Given the pressure he has endured in Raleigh this [...]
