Mark Gottfried took the reigns at North Carolina State University,and broke the curse of the personalities and issues of the past. The basketball program did not have a chance of any success with the greats of the past still a haunting presence in the success and failures at NC State. Jim Valvano was a Superstar; only a Superstar can break the spirit and conscious of a past era. The University did require a new era in athletics, and the new era will be on display at 12:15pm on CBS. NC State plays Georgetown in the Sweet 16, and the outcome is irrelevant in the impact of Mark Gottfried at NC State. My words are for this Sunday,”Pardon our extended absence….WE ARE THE PACK, AND WE ARE BACK!!
A last note, the uncertainty in the sports program was difficult for many supporters of the school. They did not waver in the love and loyalty to NC State, and the perseverance paid off…Thank you…
